SS contacted me saying someone wanted to buy one of my non-people images under this license and that I should enable sensitive use 'til it sold and then disable. I responded they should allow disabling by model release - which they really should. I enabled my port. After a week with no sale, I disabled. Maybe I was too slow or the buyer found a different image or who knows. It would have been nice to get the big $ boost though.

The exact same thing happened to me a couple of months ago.  Was told that the buyer went in another direction.  Was also told that SS was considering Sensitive Use on an image by image basis.  Hope it happens!

...but this is not what buyers want to buy. So you as I can see you find trace option in Illustrator or Corel which made you Illustrator Master Blaster as you present yourself.

If you are offended with my piffle fell free to tick IGNORE button (its not harder than press Scan or Trace button which you are using so often in you lets say work)

Good luck

Hope you fell better after this? So much hate and frustration in you, things must not be going well for you to be complaining about other peoples portfolio. I'm the one working on it, why should you care?

1st nonsense :
...but this is not what buyers want to buy.

How please enlighten us with your knowledge... What DO buyers want to buy? My earnings and download shows the contrary else I would have stopped doing this a year ago.

2nd nonsense:
So you as I can see you find trace option in Illustrator or Corel which made you Illustrator Master Blaster as you present yourself.

Do you take drugs? Illustrator Master Blaster... Maybe find something less nerdy next time if you want to insult, just had a good laugh :). You try and do some of those type of image, you will see that there is a lot more than what you think you know.

And for your reference I do have also 700 hand drawn color illustrations and 320 video. Not sure what is your point. Not my fault if you didn't get those type of commissions. Stop crying start working, maybe you'll see results.

For my part I am not artistically proud of my portfolio, and I do know that it does not have the top level quality aspect your portfolio might have, but from a business point of view (yes this is a business, not an art gallery) I can say I would not switch my portfolio with yours :). There ARE buyers for these type of images, I see 3.3k of them saying it each month in Shutterstock.

Finally I got one lobotomy follower :)

How many empty letters. Can you please hob-nob with you scanner and with make it good trace button in Illustrator...

Congrats for you sales anyhow...

Hehe congrats on reading that reply :p Anyhow everything looks simpler and easier when you look at it from the outside :).

You're an artist, I am and investor and wannabe artist, bottom line, we make money, and that is what selling Microstock is about for the most part.

Hope it made you feel better, else a therapist might help :p

Yes, but I also only have vectors at SS.

Just got another one tonight, looks like same buyer (East Coast - NY). The illustration had a similar theme and tonight's commission was $72.00.

I thought this was going to be a slow week, but it's looking like it could easily be a BWE.

Just had the same image sell 2 x SOD's today for a total of $168. First was in the UK a few hours ago for $18 and another just now from the US east coast for $150. Fairly ordinary image that's only been on-line for a couple of months too.  It's definitely an aspect of SS that keeps growing.

On the earnings schedule it says 30% and in parentheses it says "up to $120", does that mean they are charging customers a max of $400 or does it mean that even if they charge $1,000 you only get $120?

  No, Scott from SS said customers pay up to 400 dollar.

Lovely!  Congratulations!  :D

Thank you! As it happens it is also the first time I've exceeded $250 from a single day from one agency alone. Not bad from a place where everyone keeps telling us we only earn "25c a download". My RPD as SS so far this month is currently running at $1.33. Good times for SS contributors!

Glad to hear that people are having big sales again! I never had one but I'm close to 100 downloads so I'm hoping I'm not far from a sale like that. Also, I'm seeing an increase in sales. Today I had a sales record on SS! So yep, good times for SS contributors!

Wonderful!  :D

Last month was pretty poor on ELs for me, but the "ODs and SODs" (that always makes me laugh) are going pretty well. 

Well done to morning.light too.  Wishing you both (and all) many more sales and increasingly high returns.

Noticed the same with EL's, last 2 months have been light on for me, well under my usual amount. Hoping it returns to normal levels soon! And yes, congrats on the big sales guys!

Oh that's interesting.  Sorry to hear it, but glad I'm not alone in that.  Sharing your hopes!  Good luck for the month ahead.  :)

Just got a $112 SD from an image that sold only one time for $0.36 in three years its been on SS.  I commented in a different thread yesterday that I had only one D/L all day and now there selling again. Go figure.  The SD's and OD's have been great.....thank you SS!

Congrats jcpjr! I just had a similar experience, but with an OD, not SOD unfortunately.

Will it work if I try to give up everyday?  :D
