sales have been going very bad recently, although I am constantly uploading new images, sales are constantly getting lower, I can not prevent the decline trend, over the last year, total earnings have decreased by half. The money I earn from istock is 20-25% of my total earnings. I am really in search of different jobs, different incomes other than microstock currently...

Of course the other issue with going exclusive at iS nowadays is that your portfolio will be selling at a significantly lower price point than if you had submitted all your content as an exlcusive (I forgot what the ratio is). I forget the different collections and price points for non-ex vs. ex. submitted content.

On iS, indie content is 1 credit and exclusive content is 3 credits. All content is in premium access, no idea how the pricing there works; only some exclusive content goes to Getty.

I believe you can only get content into Getty if you are exclusive at iS. Were you exclusive at iS when you submitted your 8000 images?

I dont know that, they are constantly changing everything and very quickly,

I'm confused. earlier in this thread you said, "I only stayed in exclusivity for 1 month and I left immediately due to I could not reach the performance I expected" I read that as meaning that you left iS exclusivity after a month. But now you seem surprised that only one of your images is on sale on Getty. Only exclusive content (Editorial [becomes known as "Creative Unreleased" which sounds dodgy and is inaccurate] or Signature +) is in Getty directly (not via Premium access). Really, that was superfast for them to get even one file onto Getty in that month you were exclusive.
