Like many people here, I am uploading to about 10 sites, and have got into the habit of uploading the full size image to all the sites. I use the Canon 5d ii and so that can be a pretty big file if it hasn't been cropped. I do that for laziness reasons - I only have to maintain and keyword one copy of each file, and I think I am also assuming that a designer will buy the size they need on the site that they find the image on. On Shutterstock that means that someone may get a massive file for the 35c, but unless they would have searched for the same image on iStock and paid more for a larger copy, then I haven't actually lost any money. I may feel like I have given them a lot for 35c, but it is still a sale.

Any thoughts - is there evidence that buyers who see some small file on Shutterstock would seek out the same file on iStock if they needed a larger file size?

I wouldn't have thought so, I don't think buyers browse the various microstock sites comparing image sizes.
