/A so-so month can´t really tell if I´m happy or not. Adding more than 1.300 files in the last 12 months, I sure would have expected more. Definitely better than April. Definitely negative are the few DLs I have received so far for all my 600+ uploads in 2012.

Horrible. WME. Decline month to month continues. Sales per image 60% lower. Double the images in my portfolio over last year, but income 20% lower. Odd fluctuation in sales day to day. It's becomes less cost effective to invest time and money in producing high quality images with each month's decline.

Things are going in the right direction.  I went full time last year and so far so good (obviously I could do with a bit more smile).

Dramatic month, downloads collapsed like never before.


Worst May Ever in downloads.


Even in 2007 with a portfolio of 400 images I had more downloads (now I have 7000 images in portfolio).

My downloads collapsed in April, and May has been at that level, but the last few days things started picking up. I think the P+ helps.

Good. Best month of the year. And beat the rest even without any ELs.

Encouraging, except for the last week.

Mixed .


$ are  up on last year ( +14 % ) but down loads continue to fall and this is very concerning. (- 20%) this isdespite a portfolio increase of  26 % over the year.


Sales per potfolio image are on a very steady decline.


Income is  just about covered by my ever increasing portfoilio and Istock price rises, but the long term is not  good , we require more customers.

Very bad month, second worst month in over two years in terms of $.

WME for downloads (not counting for my first few months back in 2006).

Major downward trend. Although I have been uploading a lot all month, so hopefully things will turn around.

ETA:

compared to:  Last month   Last year (May 2011)
Downloads        -50%                 -56%
Royalties          -15%                 -59%
