Yes, iStockphoto's 5 Millionth Approved File will soon be joining the collection ranks. More than ever at this stage of our progression, everything is about quality, everything is about passion and vision ... and not just about sheer numbers. The overall strength and abilities of our contributors is what's really climbing. That said, those sheer numbers are rising too, and as far as milestones go, this is a big one, no doubt. Place your bets... as that file is most likely sitting right now in one of the Q's.



Woo Yay. But I only have 3 in the queue

I have a few in the Q.

Amazing to me that I get half a dozen downloads every day when all of my files have a 1 in 5,000,000 chance of being purchased.   Somestimes while puttering around in the forums I forget just what a huge business we're doing here!

I have also 3 in the queue, it would be cool to get the 5M on one of them, even the 5 000 0001. As a newbie with only 49photos, i am much more happy to get average 2-3Dls/day since a month from the 5M.

5m 'files'? So the big one could be a video or audio clip?

Well, despite the smiley, there is a valid discussion point here. There must come a point where the content is so diluted, that individual contributors sales drop to uneconomic levels, due to the volume of images.


So what is the optimum size of a general purpose Stock Image Library?
Is culling the answer ? Culling by age or what criterion?


I dont know, but 5 million images (OR sounds OR ...)  just blows my mind,,,
