How about a page displaying top personal earners across all sites with no graph, just images with say 25/50 and 100 view option, sorted either by income or downloads.

Also the information that I'm finding quite relevant is when looking at my top earners and realizing I don't have a given image on the other sites, would it be possible for that information to be displayed as a java rollover on the main graph page ? ie just which sites the image is on...

added my 2 cents :)

I've signed up also, very nice idea, I like it, despite being a tad anxious re giving my passwords to a 3rd party site.

Would love to see StockXpert and 123RF on here also, besides FT of course :)

Excellent work Rahul, what's your personal motivation for doing this? do are you looking at a monthly/yearly subscription fee down the track ?

I've had a good year despite several periods of luls in terms of new material. December was extra good with an exclusive sale on  DT that netted me $520 alone!

I'm curious where everyone is with the new Earnings Schedule in relations to their live long earnings and new payments restructure.

General Stock Discussion / Re: May 2008 earnings breakdown
« on: June 01, 2008, 07:42 »




My Summary:

  • SS - had my BME there in the space of 12 months, good month all around except no EL's
  • iS - pretty lousy month on all accounts compared to prior
  • FT - more DL's then April but no EL thus overall drop
  • DT - positive growth but nothing earth shattering... yet
  • 123rf - lower sales then expected, hopefully this will change and isn't a trend
  • StockXpert - looks great but only because April 08 was really lousy, let's see how June goes
  • SV - pretty good for an upstart

My Conclusion:

This month marks twelve months of me dabbling in microstock. It was my second best month in terms of income and my best in terms of sales. The separating factor from my best income month (October 07) was no EL sales. I dropped the ball between Oct 07 and Mar 08 with no new material. However I do seem to be back on track now so onto June 08 and let's see what the future holds. The one observation I have is that microstock does seem to be slowing down due to combination of economy and market saturation. Also another is to take nothing for granted in this industry.

i dont know at the other agencies .. i am only on fotolia and the may is perfect... more than 1000 credits ok for me

If you got 1000 credits on FT in one month you would be making a killing if you had your images on the other big 6...

Yep, IS has been down the most for me out of all my sites

amp it up generally means to improve color, contrast and white-balance in an image

iStockPhoto.com / Re: Istock subs... How much did you get?
« on: May 26, 2008, 06:45 »
Istock offering subs can only benefit everyone that sells their work there as it simply expands the range the options via which customers can buy our images. The only losers will be shutterstock if they don't look at credit sales very soon as I can see a few of their customers now going to istock.

« on: May 20, 2008, 20:56 »
What I can't understand is how do they plan to make any money. Certainly not from the micro stock crowd.

That's what first said about Google ;)

« on: May 20, 2008, 02:13 »
Just had 3 sales in one day and have already added it to my top six as the 7th site for which I'm tracking sales and downloads stats wise on monthly basis. Bigstock, Crestock and Albumo are all yet to get that promotion. For the record I have no issue at all with the upload process who needs ftp :)

While adversely my iStock sales have tanked big time this month, my SS sales are very strong.
