Hello, I have had a blatant slump in sales since the beginning of Corona in early 2020 for newly delivered pictures. Actually, I don't sell any newly delivered pictures anymore. And live only from the old pictures. To name a few numbers: in 2019, sales with the pictures in the 5-digit range. 2020/21/22 in the lower 3-digit range. Is this only my problem? Nice to hear from you all....

That certainly depends to a large extent on what subjects you are photographing.
I myself have many pictures on Corona that went well during the crisis and now notice a decline in sales, because the crisis is moving more and more into the background.
For new images I see no difference and sell now rather better than before. Of course, this may also be due to the fact that my skills for keywording and post-processing have improved significantly. Hope this helps.

Ok. Yes. But it was a hard cut there. I mostly do food.

I see no reason why the topic of food should be less in demand during Corona.
My thesis would be that the competition increased strongly because there was little to photograph during Corona, for example, due to travel restrictions, and many photographers switched to food  ;)

So I don't get it wrong: You had five-figure microstock revenues a year until 2019 - and now they're only in the low triple digits?

My downloads and revenue have also dropped significantly, but as extreme as you write it seems extremely strange to me.
