They've been steady for me. I'm slightly up from last month. Had several yesterday.

IS is up and down like a slow elevator. I've never understood what makes it move. April, which was bad on all other sites, was a record month for me at IS, but now it's down again, while most of the others are going up.

Agree.  I am not concerned and I sure next month will be up again.

I had a nice increase in sales every month until April, then my sales fell 30%.  This month is clambering back up to February levels.  This is a bit disappointing, considering I have been adding the max uploads every week.

This past week was very slow for me, but I did get downloads.  However, where before I had been getting regular sales on the weekends, now May has brought me mostly zero weekends  :(.  But I've still been able to make almost my monthly average.  April was my BME by a very small margin.  From the sounds of everyone's results, I think IS have definitely been tweaking the search engine.

Hey Sharply.  I hardly ever go to the actual SS site, but your most pop airplane was there on the welcome page a minute ago - big and bold (and with no watermark!).  A pretty darned impressive photo.  Hopefully good for a couple of downloads if it's the first thing they see! 

Edit:  Sorry gang, I thought this was a shutterstock thread.  Oh well.

Thanks for noticing, Pixart!

They rotate the top 50 sellers of the week through that slot. My shot has been there for about a week or so ... the in-your-face placement sure helps with sales.

I'd sure love to get some free publicity like that on IS!

OK, now i'm on board. I was up for the month, but now it's been over  a week for a sale or a view. Haven't gone this long without a sale since I started there in July, including Christmas/New Year.

All included, sales were down for me in May.  However, nice slow build on IS with a very small 'folio,  DT posted a nice increase over previous months.  What killed me in May were my SS sales...way down.  Of course, I only uploaded to SS once in May, might be why. And a nice surprise, I've actually sold a few on LO? Hope it's a pattern.  8)tom

May was up for me, mostly on vector file sales, however, this last week has been slow like others had mentioned and today I had my WDE, well, my worst non-holiday weekday ever since 2005. I had about half of the sales I had on memorial day, which is about a third of the sales on an average day I had the week before, so about 1/6th my normal sales day for May, and about 10% a normal early December sales day. I hope today is a fluke and not a trend, and I like to try to keep a positive attitude, but everytime I had a radical sales drop at Istock it really was the worst possible scenario, ended up being the trend and not a fluke.  Basically if this trend keeps up Istock will be making about as much as Canstock does for me.
