Sales picked up which is great as they had been going down for the past few months (total earnings up 25% this month). I still haven’t got round to upload which is very disappointing. I have some ready to upload and have another batch ready for editing. StockXpert had a great month and iStock picked up a bit after a couple of disappointing months. Shutterstock put in another solid effort but is still way of its highs.

Since I have been doing this for about 2 1/2 years now, I thought it would be interesting to see annual trends. Ignoring the fact that I was constantly upload until about August 2007 ( I have uploaded very few since then), you can see that we have just gone though a slow patch and things should increase now till about November. Most of my photos are travel shots (not a Christmas one amongst them) so my trends may be different to those which different photo mixes.
