Did the pandemic change how contributors upload? Not as much as we thought!

StockPerformer.com:
We ran the numbers for 2019 and 2020 and realize that the pandemic has impacted contributors and agencies in different ways as we thought. Read here to see the numbers:

What do you think? Is it what you expected?

Firn:
To me the numbers look pretty much exactly like what I expected.


Also, I feel like all of this doesn't weight in the change in royalities on Shutterstock, which might have a bigger effect on how much people upload than a pandemic. Many people stopped uploading to Shutterstock or uploaded less because of the lower royalities, not because of Corona. At the same time a lot of contributors told people to switch over to Adobe, which many people did, as you can see from various forum entries.  I think that's a major factor in contributors' upload behaviour as well.

MxR:



within a couple of years the covid photos will turn into millions of allergy and contamination photos. A niche is closed.

Chichikov:
Yes, now I use mask and gloves to upload

Justanotherphotographer:
Fantastic to see SS falling behind AS for newer content. Serves them right. Who wants to upload stuff only to see it get (much less than) 15% come January?
