Mediocre.
Close to new normal in the end, rescued by an SOD. About 25% down on June 2016.

Worst month in 7 years, all subs apart from 3 ODs and $26 total for the month!! (1745 images). 80% down on average, don't think I'll be bothering much longer.

Best month ever on SS with 6 single sales $14+, 2 of which were $84 and $94 respectively.

Alamy is dead to me as well as other Midstock agencies...  >:(

BME for me with a decent margin.
SS was absolutely on fire for the first 3 weeks, then, as I expected, they turned the tap off in the last ten days. But that is normal, after 3 excellent weeks you get punished.
P5 decent, FT below par.
All the other are dead men walking

About the same as last year's June. Passed a personal milestone as far as earnings though so happy about that.

Seriously poor. $$$ back to levels of 2013 when I had only been at SS 12 months and had 20% of the images I have now. Downloads 40% down on 2013 levels. Complete disaster averted by one medium large SOD mid-month.

I have to go back to May 2014 for a worse month.  And June was about 50% from my peak months, which were pretty consistent for a while.

June was OK, not great. 40% of March, double April, same as May.

Turned out a typical slow summer month for me after a scarily slow couple of weeks. Get the feeling theres a lot of tinkering with the search engine....I suppose the summer is a good time to test things

Started very good, Shutterstock was crazy (finished BME there) - the rest - so so.
then slowed down for the second half :(
A single day with $300 sales in fotolia made it reach my average+.

Guess the slow summer is here. Time to shoot stuff!!

SS was decent, Fotolia pure disaster, worst month since december '14 (I started with FT in april 14'), barely reached payout. Good month on alamy though, 5 sales  netting me 125$.

SS was average, but down compared to last month.

SS down 50% over last month....$1200 down to $600.  Very low with whatever change they made in the search. Everywhere else was average, nothing spectacular to report on except the huge drop at Shutterstock.

$50 USD down compared to previous month, but I will still count as a best month.

SS was well down on June 2016, mostly due to a lack of big SOD sales.  I will try and upload more but it's hard to get motivated.  Selling prints is looking like a better option.

Not bad, but not great. 10% drop from May on SS. FT remained the same. A fairly sizeable drop on 123RF.

Overall a decent month. I don't think July will be any better now that we're entering the vacation season.

I often find when someone post a question: How was your month you will get these replies and usually in this order-

1. Worse month ever
2. Best month ever
3. About the same or OK

In the end nothing really is answered- just the nature of the beast... :-\

In like a lion, out like a lamb. Hopefully the slump towards the end is not a sign of things to come.

Average results on SS, FT and DT.
Good month on P5, IS, Alamy, 123RF and DP (with 4 surprising payments request).
Poor month on 500px and FAA.

Pleased with my total June revenue (well inside 4 digits zone)

Edit: I forgot a nice check from an independent gallery  :D

20% of what I made in May, but about 50% of what I normally make as May was a bit of a spike.

Yes which is why I like SSs own quarterly report AFAIK the only truly objective statistic about stats anywhere. This really only tells us that on average  RPI is going down.
