I wonder how the latest announcements on collectiosn will affect the RC amounts we are aiming for ...

I've gained a little in the last couple of months, but I'm still woefully short. 39% when I need to be at 50.


I think my only hope of maintaining my current royalty is if iStock take pity on us and lower the RC targets...

I doubt that will happen .... I hope your gains keep coming though!

I have been uploading a lot but Jun was very disappointing for RCs, only 2 good days and lots of 'no DL' days. Still a month ahead of last year but I have at least 30% more files than last year and the new files just aren't selling.

That is unfortunate ... at least you are still ahead though.

Still ahead but chance for the rest of you guys to catch up, Summer slowdown has hit and I have 2 credits in 6 days!


Good news is I passed the 2000 files mark with some nice wedding and Yorkshire images.

Bummer on the slow down, I can relate, nothing much moving here either. Well done on passing 2000 files too, that is quite a body of work.

It's not totally impossible - they did reduce the targets once before - but the way things are going, they'd have to reduce them quite a lot for me to keep at my 35% level!


Only a very slight improvement for July, I'm still lagging behind my target.

I am  not too displeased for July. First full month as an indie and it was not my worst month for the year ... 2 other months actually performed lower. My aim is to keep my 16% fingers crossed this will be possible!

Well done Zmeel and hereswendy, you caught me in July and will probably go further ahead as August is my worst month of the year normally.

I only  caught you because I changed target due to going Indie .... nothing much happening for me so far this August!

Great work zmeel, my month picked up towards the end but the start was a disaster.  Uploaded a mass of Lake District shots over the last few weeks but they don't seem to sell well and there are thousands of phenomenal shots to compete against.

^I had a bit of a help from a very generous buyer who gave me 10 extended licenses
I am not uploading at the moment because new images do not sell. I test the water once and a while and as soon as things pick up I will start again.
