Hi all,


my sales are steady from May 2012, but up from June 2011. Hopefully stockbyte at getty's will happen this month

Slow month, Just under 500 DL's for 30 days. I had a DL every day of the month. I like that. Still seeing XS and small DL's onn file size. Just one EL for the month...that sucks. I know is summer and things slowed. I have been uploading like crazy. I did see 14 files get thier first ever download.

June-12         Last month       Last year
Downloads    -16.89%            -28.73%
Royalties       -9.00%              -8.51%
Uploads         +1.30%            +31.54%


As always these numbers are excluding GI sales.


I need to take into account though that for whatever strange reason June 2011 was my second best month ever, so I didn´t really expect growth. But this drop is the worst ever in my career and pretty frightening.

Have to go back to October 2009 to match June's sales.It's only my exclusive + files which is keeping the money ok.On the flip side though June's sales has recouped most of the money i spent attending the Berlin Lypse.

-50% $$$ compared with May.


DLs worse since August 2011.


April and May $$$ were good thanks to ELs, but no visits from the EL fairy in June. Bad month for me.

Compared to May 2012: Royalties up 10%, Dl down -10%


I put a lot of files into e+, it helps with the extremly low downloads. Less than 150 downloads this month.


Compared to June 2011: RL down 14%, Dl down 53%!


Money is the most important, but the low number of downloads scares me that the buyers are all leaving or not enough new ones coming in

pretty bad for me, some dreadful midweek $$ days dragging the month down.

Regular sales $$$ Down from May 2012 around 18%.
Regular sales $$$ down from June 2011 around 31%.

edited to add, Lowest $$$ month from regular sales since December 2008.

June continued a slow but consistently noticeable decline in downloads since I became Exclusive in January, despite regular uploads. But $$ has remained largely the same each month, within a small margin of error.

Depressing. Have to go back to June 2008 when I had been a member for a year and my portfolio was a fraction of what it is today to find a June with less (but just by  24%). Compared to June 2009 with also then a much, much smaller portfolio down 78%.  Two EL:s made the §§ less dismayal.  Well guess I just have to UL better images (have already tried more in vain).

Average month, wich means mediocre for Istock. Luckily I'm not exclusive so I can upload on other agencies too, where my works sell and a lot.


IS gets me only about 1,4% of my total sales XD

Dreadful with a capital dread. Just over half of May 2012 dollars.

Best June ever.

Slightly up on April, though noticeably down on May. The first three weeks were very good including several ELs, the last week was pretty dire - which I suppose will be the norm for the next few weeks now summer is here.


DLs -14% on May 2012


$$ -17% on May 2012
