Hope this is the right place to ask.

I'm wondering if there are a service that can show us the data of most profitable, downloadable stock images by category, keyword etc.?

Thanks!

Try Shutterstock search with Popular filter. The exact numeric data will be still not displayed of course. The only agency showing exact number of sales of specific item is envato as far as I know, but their entire collection is quite small.

Irina, thanks for your reply.

I know that we can filter images by popularity etc. on microstock sites but what I mean is some analytic online service that will have data from several microstocks and where is possible to see exact numbers of downloads/sales of most popular items by category and keywords.

Come up with your own themes and concepts.

Even if you could get data on sales, knowing what's profitable requires data no service could possibly give you - the costs of producing the images.

If you look at what is for sale, you'll see a range of types of work, from those where there were no costs beyond owning the equipment needed to make, process and upload the shots plus the contributor's time. Other work has locations and models that need to be paid for.

In the earlier days of microstock, many more sites did display download data, but as that led to attempts to copy success, you won't see that data now. Dreamstime does still show it, but they're not doing well these days so it won't really tell you much.

I can't imagine any legitimate purpose for a service offering such data and I can imagine that the largest and most successful contributors would lobby heavily to have any agency that made stats available stop it. Copying other people's work would not count as a legitimate purpose...

You can go by current trends in media or make a trend. Or ask your self, what would you download?  :)

If you are copying most popular, you are too late. Be a leader in your own ideas, not a follower of others by imitation.

True. Just remember when you are completely copying some popular images that several hundreds of other contributors do the same at the same time :)
