Probably iStock. If it keeps doing as well as now I might go exclusive.

Right now?   IS.   I used to run my mouth totally against being exclusive.....  Sometimes with IS.. I now think about it.... not  a lot...but once in awhile I wonder about it...    I would have never considered it my first year in micros.

2nd would be SS

That's a tough one. It's between Istock and Shutterstock, but I'd lean toward Istock.

Shutterstock in a heartbeat.

At the moment, IS. There are real advantages being exclusive there. DT could be an alternative. Not SS, since I'm not sure about the long term potential of subscription prices.

And no sales.

Hmm, IS is my best earner, even with a smaller portfolio due to picky inspection and not having my illustrations there, so I guess it should be my first choice.

I would like to pick StockXpert however, I think it's more fair in technical rejections and the earnings per image are much more decent.  Subs sales however may change this picture.

Regards,
Adelaide

IS is:
my best earner by far,
where I started,
where I learned the most,
and will be going exclusive on february... so yes, IS is the one I choose.

ShuttersTime.

Tough choice to be honest. SS and DT are so different and me thinks they attract different customers, and are not competitive to each other. IS gives me bad vibes. I'd hate to leave BigStock, so... no.

Some choices in life are impossible to make.

I would like to say Shutterstock.  They are a joy to upload to, they get images to market fast, and they have a very fair search engine.

But honestly, after the iStockphoto announcement of increased prices, I would have to lean in their direction.  They generally beat Shutterstock in monthly earnings for my portfolio, and "25 to 30 cents per image" is going to look awfully poor in comparison to iStock one month from now.  Hopefully the subscription sites start to value the images we produce a bit higher.

StockXpert or LO.  They are the only sites that haven't pissed me off at one time or another.  LOL

Shutterstock for sheer professionalism, and my biggest earner by far.

Then SX (if they will ever pay me, when are they getting Paypal sorted?).

I have a real soft spot for Bigstock. When I first started out they were the most helpful site, the reviewers even sending me emails with pointers and tips. Their encouragement meant a great deal.
