I was playing around with Galastock and thought I would do some statistics. Below is the highest download per category. The category is first, then Downloads (DL), then views for that photo not the highest views (V), then what the photo is, then Total number of photos (in brackets), then comments:

Abstract DLl2 V155 Cemetery crosses* (640) (~ is second)
Animals DL11 V71 Penguins (1040)
Architecture DL9 V47 Modern building (1140)
Backgrounds and Textures DLl2 V155 Cemetery crosses* (720)
Business & Finance DL13 V218 Fountain pen# (520)
Communications Dl10 V213 Lady on mobile (180)
Food & Drink DL13 V100 Coffee^ (1220)
Holidays DL7 V316 flower (700)
Illustrations DL7 V79 Silhouette of 6 people (220)
Macro DL8 V56 Coffee (400)
Medical DL8 V36 Lady with mask on (120)
Miscellaneous DLl2 V155 Cemetery crosses* (1080)
Nature DL10 V82 Lizard (2500)
Objects DL13 V218 Fountain pen# (2420) (^ is second)
People DL11 V50 Shaking hands (1960)
Sports DL6 V132 Riding boot in stirip (440)
Technology DL6 V71 Radio active sign (420)
Transport DL6 V76 Boat (580) ( is second)
Vectors DL10 V128 Paint cans~ (180)
Work and Construction DL1 V17 Digger (40)

-   I thought you could only add one category per photo but some photos clearly have more (*, #, ^, ~, are the same photo). Not sure whether you use to be allowed two categories and it has changed?
-   Total photos is about 16,520 (I rounded down to the nearest 20 but since there are double ups this seems about right)
-   Most photos is nature with people up there but business down quite low. Highest sell is food with businss, abstract, background, miscellaneous (same photo) in equal second.
-               (EDIT) the default search is by date (newest first).  YOu can also search by most DL and most views but it always defaults back to date. Not sure if this can be changed.

As far as my photos at Galastock go, they are selling quite slowly about the same as LuckyOliver (most downloads on site is 18 though I am sure some free credit swaping went on). Not to sure if it is worth joining up yet??

Thanks for the stats, yeah it is more than a week ago that I had my last sale and that with that penguin picture with the most dlds under animals.. Its quite slow. Actually it slowed down for me. So I am really not sure if that site has a promising future.

They are still there. 

I keep checking that I have no sales for the month.  No sales for Luckioliver either this month.  Had a few sales at Canstock which I have forgotton about and not uploaded for about 4 months.

I uploaded six images on Nov 20th, went there today and they're still pending.  Makes me think of Gimmestock!

I uploaded some bu FTP and they are just sitting there.  Cant figure out how to submit them.

However, with no sales for 3 months, i dont really care.  Anyone getting sales?  LO has had a few sales this month.

Can anyone log in to Galastock?  I tried today, it doesn't even recognize my email, nor I can find myself in the search tool.

Again, is anyone managing to log in or do anything in Galastock?  Even simple searches are not working for me!

I was starting to think that Galastock had a problem with me...  Well, they had, refused 3 of my 7 or so submissions when I started long ago, and so I left them aside.  I was in fact trying to log in and delete the remaining images.

Looks like it's a whole different site now...and no longer in English.

« Reply #15 on: November 29, 2007, 17:34 »
Can you log in? I forgot my password there. Last time I only tried to find my images, but now it's impossible to search for them in Latvian or Russian. :)

I pulled out of here a long time ago, back when they didn't review my huge batches for a total of 3 months.  I said see ya later...
