I don't think you can see resolution bought with those small sales, would say that probably they don't go bellow HD. If it was normal sale SD is 50  :-\

Adobe Stock / April video sales
« on: April 22, 2020, 03:08 »
This has been the worst month form the start of Adobe with videos.

Photo sales are ok, but videos just dropped like a rock.

What are your statistics showing?

i am curious... why are you people still in SS If you can't control your onw copyright? for 1,50? Shooting video is much more expensive than a coffee.  ::)

Well as well as SS selling the occasional videos for $1.50 and under.. Pond5 dropped the percentage to 40%, introduced web pricing and subscriptions, iStock pay a super-low commission rate, 123RF, DepositPhotos and Dreamstime barely sell any videos compared to the big boys... so, who do you suggest we do submit to?

True! You could only go to Shutterstock Select.

I would rather see a high fee to let you upload. In this case there wouldn't be so many files online and your content could sell better.

Adobe Stock / How is your December
« on: December 31, 2019, 05:57 »
Is it just me, or do you have similar graphs?

Pond5 / Re: Any ideas to suggest to them?
« on: September 28, 2019, 15:14 »
They should put on fixed prices at normal value and bring buyers back and give us 50% revenue back  :)

Pond5 / How much is your Pond5 down?

General - Top Sites / Re: Sites worth uploading - Photos
« on: September 25, 2019, 05:00 »
Well, my average revenue on iStock for photos is 0,4$ per image. Shutterstock are mostly 0,38$

General - Top Sites / Sites worth uploading - Photos
« on: September 25, 2019, 04:21 »
Which sites are worth uploading for photos? That they have a decent amount of sales?

I have a good amount of sales with 6000 portfolio at:

- SS
- Adobe
- iStock

Some at:

- Depositphotos

Storyblocks: Subscription program

Envato / Envato market for video
« on: August 22, 2019, 03:07 »
How is your revenue compared to other video stock sites at Envato market? Is it worth uploading?

The one which is not a subscription model.

What are these sales, where can I read more about them?

Is this a subscription model like with Storyblocks?
What is Partner portal?

I only found this page


Adobe Stock / Re: What is your position?
« on: August 14, 2019, 11:57 »
How is your Adobe position number going on in the last two months?

My sales have dropped 50%, but weekly position still stays quite the same.


If you would say $6000, then it wouldn't be so bad... but giving away all your hard worked images for $600? You really don't yet respect your work, do you?

Even with that amount of monthly income everyone should leave iStock... My video downloads are averaging little bellow 5$ at iStock. That is at least 1/5 of average HD sale elsewhere... They are stealling right in our face.

But in the eyes of a lot contributors, 6 grand is 6 grand. It is still hard to cut 72k per year from your sallary.

Everyone should says fuck it and pull the plug. And maybe in the future things would get better.

Yep, Storyblocks sits at 5th place from 6 agencies where we contribute.

More relevant number would be downloads per month / $ .
For example, iStock went bellow $5/clip and I stopped uploading...

In Membership now: $0,11 was $0,18.

You can't see number of DLs in Member library to calculate your earning for $/clip

With the new Dashboard revenue pool is not visible.

VideoBlocks / Re: Storyblocks - any signs of life?
« on: May 18, 2019, 04:57 »
Open_, you are right with.

It is about 60% of the first two months and going down fast. In 2-3 months $ return from Memeber library will be about the same as in Marketplace before.

Not worth offering unlimited downloads for that price:

23rd of February:

Update about the pricing plan weve set a date for receiving the lists of subscription clips to March 31. Please provide it by that date. Well be moving collections that have content in subscription plans to our $29 HD / $179 4K tier on April 1st.
For the subscription buyer, on a per clip basis, unlimited downloads is nearly free versus a-la-carte pricing and is too wide a disparity.

Clips that are not in Member library were not affected.
