I say I'm going to quit exclusivity every month around the 20th  ;D

Same boat, keep adding new work, income keeps dropping now making under a 1/4 from my personal peak in 2010.

I'm uploading via Q-hero, after you upload a batch you can download the batch with the Meta Deta attached to the files, ready to upload elsewhere when the time comes.

This guy travels and makes money from his photography/video work, some on stock, he gives regular break downs on what he makes, he has several sources for his income, youtube, his blog, stock photographs etc -

same for me. 6000+ images, exclusive - 7 days this month with 0 sales.

With the current level of decline if I'm still exclusive this time next year, I will be homeless  :o

Things are incredibly bad for me this month. Exclusive with close to 5000 images. 0 sales Monday, second week day in two weeks with 0 sales, half way through the sales day today 0 sales. Used the easily clear $100 most week days, now $50 is a good day.

I can't sustain this, not sure how I can afford to quit exclusivity, but I'm not seeing any other option at the moment.

I mess around with many of them.
I have the VSCO films 1-5 for lightroom, though for stock I don't find them that useful.
For bright vivid landscapes I would recommend film pack 4. The Slide film pack.
I have the Nik software Pack but don't use it much, I think because I was using Rad Lab
http://www.gettotallyrad.com/radlab/breakdown/ first and got used to using that.
Then I purchased, http://www.alienskin.com/exposure/index.aspx
which I now use the most, I find this one the best, personally for me.
Both the rad lab and alien skin exposure both have free trials, I'd recommend giving them a go, especially Alien skin Exposure.

Hmmm, that's very curious. Stacey was a very active participant in the Stocksy community. I'm quite surprised she left without explanation. Anyone know why...?

Maybe because she joined offset ?

From what I have been told, Stocksy require image exclusivity, hence all their content will only be available on Stocksy.
