A little jump on FT, but with these small numbers (100-150 sales/month), I don't know whether it means anything or not...

It was a BME for DLs but not for $$$ due to no ELs and very few credit sales in general.  The subs at higher values make a big difference though.  Not sure if it is a blip or will continue.  However, to put it in perspective, so far this year I have made more at Canva than FT with only half as many images online.  FT this year is sixth overall for me, so they still have a long way to go, but this month was a step in the right direction.

Just to show how bad it is for me, with 2,725 images, I sold 5 last week.  My best was 87 in a week in 2009.  Will try some new uploads but that's not helped in the last few years.

I doubt anyone with a port over 2000 images will see a 50% increase my guess people seeign a 50% increase probably have a small port or small earnings to begin with. going from 25 to 50 dollar is easier than from 250 to 500

FT started this new week on a gallop for me. I hope it will continue so, at least for a little while.
I have a small port (1000+), earnings are sometimes up, other times not so much, but still somewhat better than at SS (lately).

I have a little less than 2,000 images and usually sell around 100/week.  :)

My sales on FT went up about 50% from Sept-Oct.

With a tiny port (~60 files uploaded since joining in June) even a 100% increase wouldn't be statistically significant, but I have seen steady sales and significant growth since September and am encouraged to put the rest of my microstock portfolio on there. Unfortunately, a subset of my best sellers elsewhere - light blurs and the like - have been rejected because Fotolia has too many similar images in their portfolio so I won't be able to add everything there, but so far growth is encouraging.
I find it hard to believe I could sell more in one week than someone with over 2700 images, but I guess I did.

My sales have been going up the past couple of weeks. So I see an improvement.

Here is one I got today:

Sale Price: 0.450596666665

Really? There has to be that many #s after the decimal point? LOL

Almost all my sales at Adobe/FT are subs.  Lots of them, but almost never get credit sale there anymore.

50%

Compared to the same period (Sep/Oct) it's actually worse for me and still way behind Shutterstock.

My sales jumped about 50% this month suddenly.  Anybody seeing similar sales increase this month?

My ranking stayed about the same, but little better.

Can you please kindly share your portfolio because Fotolia is almost dead for us since Adobe took over and the review system sucks!

Just for the record: $25 to $50 or $250 to $500 means 100% increase, not 50%

Actually, my weekly rank went up from around 1,000 to 800.  i must be doing something right, or Adobestock users like my photos.

Na. 4000 images and the % increase month on month for the last three months has been 65%, 14% & 23% with income  in excess of 1k p/month. The avg increase is normally about 19-22% a month with at least one big one a year, i.e. that 65%er that was several hundred $ increase. FT was 1/3 of SS income but SS has slowed right down but FT has gathered pace. FT was close to 50% more than SS last month for me.

My sales have been surging recently with a small portfolio. Today is probably the biggest sales day so far with 17 sales and counting.

I've been neglecting Fotolia and Istock recently, but they're giving me really good reasons to quickly get my entire portfolio up.
