Sorry if this has already been discussed as I'm sure it has been in the past.

Do you think it is worth it to clean up (delete) old images?

I started a few years ago on one site just trying to get old dumpy photos off my hard drive and put them to work. At that point I had no intention of continuing on with microstock - uploading to other sites and actually attempting to make money by shooting specifically for stock. Because of that approach, I have a bunch of crappy images up on my oldest site as well as a crappy acceptance ratio. Lately it has been climbing month to month and the past three months were about 70%, 88%, and this month so far 100%.

 Do you think its a good idea to take them down, especially if they don't make any money or keep them up just incase they might someday? What would be the cons of taking them down? The pros of keeping them up?

Downside - they may sell and you lose a potential sale
Upside - your portfolio looks better
