Only DT is down, but I stopped uploading there and I deleted around 2500 images.
Woops... planning exclusivity "somewhere else"?

I'm exclusive (and full-time) on iStock and this month is on track to be my second BME.

I'm exclusive (and full-time) on iStock and this month is on track to be my second worst month of the year.  Expected it though, just like last year.

June has been okay for me about 20% higher than last junes earnings. I have increased my portfolio by 20% in the last year. geeze I thought I'd put more effort in than that. But atleast it wasn't add 20% to stay steady or go backwards.

Small port, excl. FT so this means nothing..........already more than double last June but majority of sales were made in the first 2 weeks of June and pretty much deceased after that. June looks to be slightly better than May so far but if the last 10 days are anything to go by, July will be rotten.

I long since stopped comparing months to other months or years to years. Too depressing. Instead I look upon each sale as a burst of sunshine that defeats the gloom for awhile. Thankfully I don't need to make a living at this.

LOL same here.

I guess I chose the right month to make my move. I knew it would be my last month because I deleted my portfolios on different agencies so I could apply for exclusivity on the 24th (was stuck in DT to the 23rd). So I knew june would be bad and probable july and august too but I have a lot of new stuff to upload to IS so it might compensate a bit for the move.

comparisons can give you a rough estimate, but even looking at yearly data all you can extrapolate is a rough trend - last year was the depth of the recession, this year has seen improvements, but that doesnt help to project what the next 12 mo will bring.

comparing results, slowdowns to others is again only roughly useful, since portfolios vary so much -- eg, my images sell slowly, but steadily and i dont see annual slowdowns [almost 4 years in MS now].

I hope you can keep us informed of your progress on IS. I contemplated exclusivity myself a few months back, but something spooked me and I backed out.

I'm also going exclusive with IS this month but can you believe I haven't had a DT download in 10 days (yes, that's TEN DAYS) and I just need a few more to withdraw my earnings before I quit!  Gonna miss those level 4 and 5 earnings but.....  anyways, hope it's just a bad coincidence.

I think the IS exclusives are suffering too, probably too many people have become exclusive in the past few months.

For me this whole year has been a bit slow, but June is a bit better than the last two months. Only DT is down, but I stopped uploading there and I deleted around 2500 images.

me too, this month however is already my best this year (better not amazing)

This is shaping up to be my worst month since December 2007 - back when I only had 1/3 of the images online that I do now. My SS and IS earnings are eroding at an alarming rate.

If this trend continues, I don't know how much longer I'm going to continue uploading. I'm in this business to make money, and I'm starting to wonder if my time is better spent working on projects that generate more income.

I don't see how is that possible with your portfolio...
