I've got a good idea of how much my income will drop when ditching the crown, I need to make an educated guess on how much my portfolio is worth on other sites and whether I can recover my income.

If you take your assumed income after leaving exclusivity as input, maybe the best guess for your income from other sites is the poll on the right.
As this is caculated out of the average of many people participating in the poll, it will be as good as it gets.

So your total income from other agencies might be in the area of three times your (newly non-exclusive) Istock income if you only consider the (other) top three agencies.

I track income earned per month per image at SS. It takes some time to calculate, but it is worth my while. I keep it all in a spreadsheet and I focus on image topics which make me $2 or more per month, per image. Not that I don't try new topics now and then, but I am more interested in increasing my % chance for a successful upload.

Good point, optimal earnings from less images. I want to see who's making $2 RPI a month on average, it must be some kick a$$ collections. Or maybe, illustrations? Too bad there's no way that it's identified by type of material, even if nothing about actually who.

Race,

Those statistics might not be worth looking at to be honest. Plenty of people have their entire port heavily influenced by a few big winners. So maybe the contributor has an RPI per month of $2 overall, but in reality it is more like $20+ from a few images, a slightly larger group which returns $5 to $15 each, and $0.25 to $0.75 for most everything else.

I'd take that. Statistics don't buy lunch, but for a couple of $20 a month images would make me feel pretty happy. LOL
