Hi Stock,

I've noticed that some types of photos since to produce sales on Large to X-Large but few sales and others produce a lot of small size downloads. Basically, you get a lot of $.25 sales or one or two $3 dollar dollars. I will have to study this in more detail to see if there is a pattern on my portfolio - guess to a balance between lot's of quarter sales and a few mult-dollar dollars...

So.... What's the question or the discussion point?

I think the question is "What kind of photos produce higher resolution sales" ?
If that is the question, let me join the OP in asking that question as well :)

Pictures where the subject is too small to be useful from a small size file and needs to be cropped out. Don't shoot huge macros if you want large sales.

If 99% of your sales are 33 cent subs, should you be reducing the size of your uploads to the minimum resolution allowed?  Or should you submit full resolution for those rare non-sub sales and even rarer ELs?

I have a couple of very large images which are collections of related objects, each of which is at a high enough resolution to be useful on its own.  Some sites tell me I can't do this, and that I'm supposed to break down the collection into indivual images.   But what I found out is that individually, they don't sell but the collections do well and are sometimes sold as XL.

you may study it but honestly upload always your max megapixels, buyers might look for it and FT and IS pays more, a few cents :)

Thank you all for super comments! It seem like the best approach is having a 'mixed' bag of pics- Some days I a really surprised on what sold at an extra large photo.
