I’d do Shutterstock & Fotolia too but they don’t give image specific stats, I could do Fotolia sales and views but it doesn’t show the image earnings.
You can sort by ‘downloads’ at my Fotolia Portfolio to see the current sales & view stats and see the most popular downloads from my Shutterstock Portfolio.

My first ‘On Demand’ sale at shutterstock looks promising at $2.48 for 1 sale, much better than the original subscription payout level I’m on of $0.33 per sale 🙂 Lets hope for more of these 🙂
Shutterstock could claw back some potential buyers that might have been defecting to istockphoto with this, and its going to keep the photographers happy too. 🙂

OK, here’s a quicky set, just 6 brushes to stamp scratches over your images with, sharp edged so its best to have the image size smaller than the brush :p Available at Rapidshare.de to save my bandwidth limit. If you download these, please leave a comment to let me know, thanks 🙂

The Full size scratches images set are available at stockxpert 😉

Go check my new brushes, made while digging back through my archive of images from a few years back, good shit for grungy masking or embellishing your PS images.

pdtnc-Splats.zip
pdtnc-ScratchyMix.zip

First two in the list on the brushes page, and here’s a lil’ taster pic…

The Scratchy Mix set is like an over-all layer to grungify your pictures, and the Splats set is just as it sounds… splatty! *Don’t forget to consider a lil’ donation if you use for commercial work*
