With another year / decade gone by Im happy to share with you my first monthly report for 2031 Special Edition, straight from idyllically-tropical island of Fernando de Noronha, 350km off the coast of Northeastern Brazil, where Ive been living for the past two years!

Ive decided to stay as far away from civilization as possible with no regrets. Things started to get increasingly chaotic and dystopic especially with the new Covid strains, civil uprisings, nuclear strikes, etc.

Happy reading and stay safe!

Google says 354km back in 2021... so I'm impressed with your attention to detail when it comes to projected rising sea levels.

Nice read. You missed the updated brand name of Getty after the acquisition by Google.

It's now called GoLetty (pics for nothing and clicks for free)

They changed it in december 2030 on Christmas Eve stating that they were very excited to finally being able to drop the hassle of sending out royalty statements and payout schedules.
Something less to wade through and worry about. You can still listen to an automated dictation of your royalty statement at their headquarters in Masqueurabraskovania, new settlement on Antarctica. Rumour has it that there's barely any queuing. Payouts are now handled once a decade for contributors who reach the 5 GCoin threshold. You have to call their bot with ICQ and dictate your wallet hash in Khoisan click language.

SS "the revised schedule consisted of weekly resets (every Sunday at midnight)."

So the AI people head shots are going to be licensed as commercial some day, and we won't need to pay models anymore? Maybe CGI everything will replace photographers?

Probably would but who could afford the tech at microstock prices

You know... with  the convid and everything else that is going on... I wouldn't be surprised if you really did travel to the future and actually wrote that article from the perspective of 2031... :)

10 years ago if I made a post on my January 2021 earnings stating that on SS I would be earning an average of 23cents/download on 164 downloads with a port of 10,700 photos as I am, I would probably get a few laughs!  :o

On Alamy, so far this month I'm at $3 net on 12,499 images.  :o

Sure but the Trad's will come back and Microstock is dying people will say they predicted this? Actually the top agencies are just tightening up their belts and we're the ones getting the cuts. The buyers are getting images for less than ever before. Free sites thrive on Ad clicks, spreading good cheer and stolen works.

Microstock is dying as far as artists rewards are concerned.

That does make me wonder what it will really be like in 10 years. Sure nothing like it was ten years ago when there were only 10 million total images on Shutterstock.

You're having a much better 2031 than I am.  Here is my earning report:

"all totaled, it was a pretty good month, I only had to pay the agencies $500 for the privilege of selling my photos."
