almost 100,00 new photos a week, but...

200,000 photographers! WOW!

WOW! is right.  I think the real money is investing in Canon and Nikon  . . . . .

200k photographers, 8,8m photos.

That makes an average of 44 photos per account...

How many of these accounts are dead, opened once but never used? Or only a few pictures uploaded and then lost interest?
I would like to know how many active photographers are there...

Cca 90 % of accounts never reach first payout, so they are dead...

I would guess like 95% (or higher) of accounts don't even upload a photo

80/20 rule ...

20% of the photographers account for 80% of the image approvals ?

I think that numbers count present all "authors" which never send first 10 photos, illustrations or whatever for review.
I think the contributor chart from iStock is more relevant
http://istockcharts.multimedia.de/
about 30.000 contributors and I think it is the easier way to be contributor on iStock with 4 initial images than on Shufter with 10.
I think on world wide scene that is less than 50.000 real contributors for Microstock, and then in that number you can count 20/80% rule.

my smallish port of around 400 images covers the average for another 9 contributors.

some of the biggest portfolios range up to 20,000 photos. = 450ish contributors.

I'd imagine its less than 80-20 rule and more like 90-95%


100,000 images per week accepted. that's one every 6 seconds !

Few things. I have not uploaded anywhere since February. So it is interesting to see the growth.

And, I think the camera manufacturers need to get a grip on what a semi professional is.

I think you are right 5% make something less make good money and its getting harder with more competition from the really good people on the top.
