Feb microstock photo statistics


Well ... February went off like a frog in a sock. Not quite a best ever month but well up on last month and definately recovered from the christmas slowdown.

Below are percentages for the month to show how I have been going:

33% shutterstock (BEST EVER MONTH - BEM)
14% dreamtime
7% Fotolia
19% istockphoto (BEM)
6% bigstockphoto
7% 123RF
7% StockXpert
3% Featurepics
0% Canstock
0% Galastock
3% LuckyOliver (BEM)

shutterstock out did itself again with another best ever month. New uploads certainlyl helped it along but I was consistantly getting DL from my old photos too so it is not just the "new photo effect" which is evident at shutterstock .

istockphoto is starting to come into its own after a recent push to get more of my photos on their. There upload system is the worst and is restricted to 15 per week which isn't good when you are trying to play catch up.

dreamtime did well and they have just introduced new prices this month. It will be interesting to see if income improves.

The next four were pretty even, though a late come back by StockXpert saved the day for it. Apparently they changed the search criteria.
