Ran across this today - oh the good old days before I even jumped in!  How many of these have changed for the worse?  I think maybe DT and SS are the same?

As of 2007:

Shutterstock
Photographers earn a $.25 flat fee per image download. After a photographer has sold $500 of images, the rate goes up to $.30 per download.

Fotolia
Pricing method is based on the exclusivity of the image. For exclusive images (images that are only available on Fotolia), a commission of 50% - 64% is offered. Non-exclusive images receive 33% - 47% commission.

The percentage of commission is based on the rank of the photographer-- the higher the rank, the higher the commission. Rank is earned by the number photos downloaded (sold). To reach the maximum earning percentage, a photographer must have sold 500,000 photos.

Dreamstime
A flat rate of 50% of the sale is offered for non-exclusive images, while exclusive images command a 60% commission. If the photographer is exclusive* to Dreamstime, they get a bonus of $.20 per submitted photo.

*Being an exclusive photographer means you only post your work at one agency.

iStockphoto
A 20% commission on sales is offered for non-exclusive photographers. That rate doubles to 40% if the photographer is exclusively represented by iStockPhoto.

StockXpert
Photographers selling photos at StockXpert earn a 50% straight commission on all sales.

LuckyOliver
Carnies (photographers) receive a 30% basic royalty on sales. Exclusive images earn 35% - 50%, based on the number of sales a photographer has generated.

123RF
Individual image sales earn 50% each, while subscription-based downloads earn $.36 each.

Big Stock Photo
Photographers earn $.50 to $1 for each photo downloaded, based on the resolution of the image sold.
