I havent uploaded for a few months but forgot myself and like an idiot I uploaded 14 studio-shots, then I remembered this thread and quickly deleted them! they would just have been buried alive never to see daylight!

....
 

?? deleting them changes a low probability to zero

the only way to add more old files is to upload new ones...




I've never had a great volume from new uploads, likely due to competition and topics, but overall sales are about 10% ahead of last year, due to consistent sales of older images


I would have done but these were conceptual studio shots with MR's and I really dont want to lose them just like that. Then I rather put them in my macro agency at least there they will be seen.

I agree with derek. I do lot so conceptual work too that takes hours of editing and I hate to see them "lost" in the garbage. I'm not sure what to do with them yet. Some agencies want work that has never been on micro so I have to be careful and plan ...

No disrespect to Micro contributors, but from what I've seen from your work it shouldn't be in Micros! I saw some of your stuff on Arcangel, that's much more suitable :)

Thank you. I love your Fine Art photos. I can only dream of seeing those places. They are beautifully executed and I'm sure you have some on arcangel too :)

Thanks, I love travelling but I realise it's not the easiest of genres to make money! Arcangel isn't treating me well, unfortunately, I'm close to giving up on them as already have 500 images and no sales after 18 months...

I do mostly illustrations, every day I get notifications on my phone app that say "Your Content Has Been Downloaded For the 1st Time" which is a good indicator, now that I can't see "sales from new content" on my dashboard anymore.

So for me new content is selling at Shutterstock. And Fotolia.
