Downloads up over previous three months though and $$$ this month have been good.

I kept the $$ level of January and Feb 2012. I guess it's OK then.

Preliminary figures show this is my second BME (last month was BME) since May 2007. I'm enjoying the ride while it lasts. What puzzles me is that many of the most prolific downloads aren't new.

Worst month since Feb 2009,
-60% $ compared to Feb 2012
-40% $ compared to Jan 2013
very very disappointed....

$$ were approx. 25% lower than January. DLs were terribly low - I had only 12 DLs in Feb.

Compared to Feb 2012:
Going back in the right direction ($) after a dreadful Dec and Jan. The first half of the month was remarkably good for E+.
Posted Fri Mar 1, 2013 1:27AM
Compared to Jan 2013: DLs 72.83 %; $ 69.89 %
Compared to Feb 2012: DLs 45.89 %; $ 78.74 %
These numbers show very bad sales, I have to go back 17 months to find lower in $, and 26 months to find lower in DLs.

here never happened: I had only one download in February on IS! while my portfolio is getting bigger ... (

Since mid of December 2012 it is going steep downward for me:
Feb 2013 compared to Feb 2012
DL: - 47 %
$$: - 26 %
Portfolio in Feb. 2013 was + 800 images more than in 2012.
Not a good trend.

Someting has definately gone Peat Tong with BM.

Only 7 DLs in February - very bad trend
Posted Fri Mar 1, 2013 2:20AM
I can not compare to february last year because I became exclusive last November. But now I'm on the same level as I was in october 2012 when I was non exclusive photographer. And I think that I would do better on iStock if I stay non exclusive . November was nice month for me, initial exlucive boost I gues. But downloads are declining since then every month. This is how my dl history looks last 5 months:
October (non Ex): 70,
since November I added 320 images to my portfilio. Thats about 25-30%.
Not verry nice.

Yep, pretty woeful here. Just showed my wife my Feb figures since I've been doing this (so since '09) and she said "It's not good." iStock, this is not good enough. As far as i am concerned, you are not earning your commission.

Struggled to hit payout for the first time in a long time. Earnings are back to my non-exclusive levels when my port was half the size. My patience is running out quickly.
