No news yet.  I don't expect to hear anything for several weeks, if ever.  This is Istock we are talking about after all ;)

I just saw this thread, Lisa. I had two sales on July 15 & 16, both XXXL, of similar images (same model, same action & props, slightly different framing). I thought it was unusual because I don't get many XXXL downloads, maybe one or two a year. Although one of the images has sold as XXXL twice before and the other's largest was a XXL.

Thanks for posting Les.  They are very nice pictures and a lovely model.  I am sure that both sales were likely to be legitimate.  Perhaps for a textbook.  :)

FWIW mine were much more generic images of a businessman over a white background making various expressions...

Well, I was initially pleased with 2 XXXL downloads back-to-back and my thought was that the lower pricing might mean people were buying larger images. But I saw Lisa's alert and it got me wondering if it really was legitimate.
