Inevitably, out in front was Shutterstock with 151 downloads ($97.16). A single sale of the Old Town area of Hastings netted $18.75 helping to push up the income total.
Istock produced 10 downloads ($20.14) with four PP sales adding another $1.40. In a surprise move they recently scrapped their restrictive upload limits and contributors can now submit up to 999 images per week. A welcome move I had always hoped for.
Dreamstime saw 16 downloads ($17.73). A number of subscription sales helped keep the amount earned down.
Picturenation saw an archive image of Labour MP Chris Smith selling in high resolution which earned a worthwhile £6 in commission. Sadly, not long now till their close down in August but, hopefully, I may pick up a few more sales before then.
123rf continued to get sales with 16 downloads ($7.15).
Bigstock achieved 9 downloads ($5.02). All of these were editorial images.
Mostphotos pleased with two downloads making Euro 4.09.
Fotolia netted three downloads earning 0.70 in credits.
As previously posted, my first FineArtAmerica sale netted $25.35. A very welcome start.
No sales at Cutcaster but one of my referred contributors had their first sale there netting me $0.06 in commission. It's a start!
Uploads in May saw some archive images of Bruce Kent, Vice President of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) and some portrait shots of a Common Barn Owl.
We are now heading into the famous Summer Slowdown period so it remains to be seen how sales will go in June. Regards, David.
