For the ones interested! Its no wonder sales are down! I spoke to a partner of a huge distributor, known him for 20 odd years and they hav just experienced the worst year ever! and when that happens to a distributor, well then it is REALLY bad news!

Another predictably crap, capped, controlled  $0.72 day at SS

How much do you expect to make from snapshots of old junk, lemurs, walls, alleys, doors and going for a walk with a camera. You need to take pictures of subjects that buyers will buy. You take nice pictures, but they aren't something that will get many downloads. That's the cap

Do your subjects look anything like these best sellers? https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights/best/contributors



Here we go again. Because my images sold MUCH BETTER (around $200 a month of which was ok for the subject matter I took) than they do now. Granted I dont shoot higly commercial stuff with models (not my thing as I find it more interesting to happen upon images by walking about) but You would be surprised what has actually sold for me. And my images are not limited to "old junk, lemurs, walls, alleys, doors" (which actually have sold well) There is a market for ANY photo taken well enough.

it's clear you are the guy who write also in the doom and gloom thread in ss....that one with a portfolio made of snapshots..who complain not to sell....really what you think you can sell with that portfolio in 2018? maybe 8 years ago or 6, but really what you expect nowadays?...it's  miracle if you earn 50 dollar with the stuff...maybe t's not you...ah it's bradbury or something similar....but if it's you please stop talking about ss and review honestly your stuff.

as a street photographer also who has won some,many, award in last year, your street images are not even good...they are snapshot, my mom can take with iPhone. really what you expect. you have probably 20 images commercially valid the rest if i were a serious editor in ss i would   have trashed without any comment.

SS site can not be reached for buyers at the moment?

Edit: Nevermind, it's accessible now.

How did Fridays become like Saturdays and Sundays now? Usually they were like any other working week day.

ss ia s awebstiete where people sell stolen images from anywhere and then go to ss forum and ask why they not sell..and nobody do nothing.
really what a mess of company. i hope they go down like a stone in the next years...the only way to stabilize the market...ss is home of zillions of russian indian and thailand spammers theft and nobody do nothing in ss. they build new enterprise building fro what'

My Friday was like a good Wednesday (over $120). Today, a Saturday, is like a Friday, with 2 ELs and counting.
Just a matter of perspective  ;)

DECEMBER 2018, The worst month since 2013.
Loading new images doesn't make a difference.
So, I stopped uploading to Shutterstock for two months.
Now I just keep uploading to Adobe Stock intensively.
