Shutterstock.com / Daily Sales Limit?
« on: November 26, 2014, 19:57 »
After observing my sales pattern for a few months, I strongly feel there is something really wrong with SS reported sales.
I understand that the number of total photos is increasing and that sales can descrease, but I do not understand how is posssible that in the past two months daily sales are slowing down and stopping when approaching the 20 mark! This happens almost every day. Today, for example, 18 dlds at 2pm and then nothing...
I used to have between 25 and 35 sales in weekdays until last Spring, and then things leveled to the low... Very frustrating...anybody has the same problem?
I emailed Ss and waiting for some feedback...


Print on Demand Forum / Artflakes?
« on: September 27, 2014, 07:49 »

I have about 1200 images on FAA. The site worked okay in the last year, but recently I have noticed less sales and views.

Looking for another POD to sell my art.

I have started with Artflakes and now have about 50 images online.
Care to share your experience with them? Any sale?


iStockPhoto.com / PP sales and IS earnings....confused!
« on: November 16, 2013, 09:45 »



I couldn't find an answer to my doubt on the other topics.

i have checked my PP sales and noticed that, for instance, one of my images was dowloaded 18 times but it does not shows any sale in the regular IS Account Balance or in the My Uploads page.

Does it mean that these 18 sales are still to be recordedmand will be in the next months?

please advide,

Alamy.com / New Changes and Sales?
« on: November 22, 2012, 16:26 »

I am pretty new at Alamy uploading since March and having 1800 images online, but I have noticed in the past month a decline in all the indicators an, especially, the most important of all: sales.
0 sales 2 zooms and between 50-150 views a day...sad thing the only thing growing are the views...
Is it normal to have such figures after the new site search changes? How are you guys doing concerning sales? Something wrong with my portfolio?
I am very concerned since, as I was beginning to build up some nubers, they changed the rules...


General Macrostock / Zoonar?
« on: July 28, 2012, 08:27 »
Hi All,

I have recently uploaded the first batch of 20 on Zoonar, got approved, chosen the partner and now trying to manage the pics and the pricing.
Any suggestion on the pricing section? Standard/premium/microstock...waht to choose?

iStockPhoto.com / Review Time
« on: May 18, 2012, 08:37 »

I am a new member on iStock and I uploaded my 18 weekly allowed images for the last 3 weeks.
I have noticed that some of the images submitted are still pending after 2 weeks. So far only 6 were accepted, some rejected and resubmitted but others never reviewed! Is it normal to have pending files for 2 weeks? Please advise,


iStockPhoto.com / Review?
« on: May 07, 2012, 15:48 »

just got accepted on iStock last week and submitted the first 18 pics.
Still pending after one week...how long do they take to assess your images?

Also, is iStock as good as SS in terms of ratio new photos /sales?

Thanks and sorry for the boring questions..

DepositPhotos / First Sales?
« on: May 04, 2012, 09:17 »

just getting a bit discouraged, I have about 160 files on DP and started to upload 2 months ago. Still 0 sales and the most viewed file has about 20 views... Is that a normal situation? Not asking much, just a sign of life! ;D

Is there an option like at SS in which you can opt out your gallery?
Please, let me know.

Shutterstock.com / SS Entry Application
« on: January 19, 2012, 07:25 »
Hi All,

I am about to try the initial 10 pics submission at SS. I am currently exclusive with DT but decided spread my wings.

I already tried the test several times over a year ago but did not succeed.
Once I went close with 6 out of 10 approved! Of course now I am a much better photographer and have 100s approved on DT.
Do you think is a good idea to submit 10 images already approved by another agency? Who is tougher, SS or DT? Did SS became stricter in the last year? Can I submit editorial and images with logos for the initial test?

A lot of questions...please give me some idea and answer!
