SS was just fine, up to the usual average month, which now varies a few dollars, month after month. And I'm happy with that. Used to be 50/50 with IS now SS is 3-4 times all the rest together.

The rest of the places?


Sales on the other sites.

A pretty average month for this year, (still up compared to 2011), but down compared to my Oct BME (the Alamy drop pretty much covers the difference)

Here are my earners in order of $. There are more down at the bottom I didn't bother to rank.

SS was down on total DL, but close to a BME.
Alamy was number 2
DT was pretty weak
123RF
Veer
CanStockPhoto
BigStock
FP

Things actually picked up at Stockfresh for me (still very low) and I had my first 2 sales at Pond5.

That's a good one, Mr. Race.

Submitting to microstock agencies since 2005, over 10,000 images in portfolio.

Comparing to November 2011:

Shutterstock - down 8%
Istockphoto -  up 3%
Fotolia - down 48 (!) %
Dreamstime - down 10%
123rf - up 16%

That Fotolia drop really is shocking.. even if we have been discussing it for the last few months in several threads.  Also surprising that Shutterstock is down as much as it is.  How much has your portfolio increased since 2011?

I don't have my numbers on this computer to report my stats - I'll do so on Monday morning.

I haven't increased my micro portfolio much since last year, I think less than 500 images went to micros... been testing the macro market a bit (and I am not impressed with returns so far).  But with Shutterstock I always had some weird dynamics - I was stuck at certain level of income for a couple of years despite of submitting a lot of new content, then - BAM! it jumped to almost double that, and now it's stuck again... 8% down on my portfolio size can be just normal fluctuations; to see a real increase I need to produce a few thousands of images a year...  :o it's easy to see a 50% increase when you double your portfolio of 200 images.... try that with 10,000:)

BME by far mainly due to payouts from all the 10 sites I actively contribute to (except GL which is a new add on for me and Stockphotomedia where I stopped uploading long time ago since they just didn't seem to be able to sell).  Payout came from all the others including SS, Istock, FT, DT, Canstock, Bigstock, 123RF, PD, Veer and Alamy.  Its great to have Alamy contribution because they usually generate high RPD sales.. unfortunately they've sold nothing for me since about a month now ... bummer!  SS tops my rankings with steady payouts month over month - how I love them!!

There's no doubt I made a mistake putting all my eggs in one basket, but hindsight is a wonderful thing. It could have gone differently. I coulda beena contender.

Ah well, the beauty of this business is I still own 10,000 stock photos that I'm free to put anywhere I want. There's always next year.

You, sir, have an amazing portfolio.

I hear you. My income went flat (despite uploading) and hit the wall at SS a couple of years ago, so I decided to focus elsewhere too. This year, I had no uploading, and I can definitely see it slowly sinking there.
