Not an oldtimer but if I may add to this discussion:
Unknown demand and decreasing RPI is one side of the story.
Increasing demand served from e.g. Unsplash is the other.

Remember, a large percentage of those 300 million plus images are things that don't have much sales potential.

But unless something has changed drastically for some explicable reason, a large percentage of those 160 million images, or those 80 million images (so on and so forth) didn't have much sales potential either... i.e. 160 to 320 is still double, whichever way you look at it.

...but which is the more important factor in revenue decline...the number of images uploaded, or the revenue per sale...something tells me it's the latter. In the "good old days" we weren't getting $0.38 per download

How much are you getting now? What's the highest you got before? I only sell video. I'm guessing the download prices haven't changed as drastically as the number of images in the last 14 years? I would have thought the number of images was much more of a factor than the revenue per sale.

But yeah, 2008 for me. Only started taking it seriously in 2014, and just done stock since 2016.

Mostly stills here....used to be an iS exclusive in the "good old days".....way way more than $0.38 per download
