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.

I like the way this site works, its pretty sensible and works logically, the upload procedure works well and editing image details is simple.
This is how the profile page looks, Its pretty concise and usable:

The Image portfolio page is just as easy with albums for organisation that work by drag and drop, and looks like this:

I have just completed uploading my portfolio of 1324 images, all accepted due to there being no inspection procedure to go through (the closest acceptance to that was 979 images at CanStockPhoto).

Earnings and referrals
Royalty-free images: earn 50% of the total price, which is €12.50 per sale.
“We offer you 1 Euro for every sold image by a referred photographer and an additional 1 Euro
for every image bought by a referred customer. This means you can earn up to 2 Euro every time a transaction is made between your referred friends”

All there is to do now is organise a few albums and site back and wait…. we shall see!

I believe it was creative Review I was flicking through at work today when I came across an advert for iStock, all you have to do is play their little game (sign up first if you already haven’t) and you have the chance, with a little bit of visual skill to grab yourself upto 5 iStock credits 🙂
