I have many heritage sites photos in Egypt all accepted as Royalty free images on SS and DT and Getty as well
while i see other contributors upload the same images it as editorial which is much higher in price

for example one photo on SS costs 99$ and pack of 25 cost over 2000$

is this my fault from the start and can this be fixed i see different in sale price between be and others



I am just wondering what is the best sites to keep uploading to even if it has low sales
My sales on shutter stock ranges between .10 to .30 usd which is crap same for getty

On canstockphoto less as 1 to 2 and 5 $ when it got sold via photosearch.com

My question to be specific what is the best sites regarding the price per image?



i am uploading images from 10 years i was at istock then getty images bought istock

there are very few sales and the royalties are very low

my question is ..

is there difference between uploading to getty images directly and uploading to  getty through istock

coz i see both images that has watermark istock and getty images even if they are under the same site or group

i guess that images that has getty watermark more expensive than istock "images"

and how can i upload directly to getty if it is more profitable ??




Please add ur option

Thanks karim
