Here is my all-time top-5 run-down… (I’ve had a massive stock break, not uploaded anything in about 2 years! *which also means I’ve been brewing for 2 years!)

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.

Damn! a stock related topic with no beer!!! Whatever next!!!
With brewing, and learning more about brewing coupled with mortgage / house extension plans I’ve had no time what so ever for stock. Not even picked up the camera for something creative since about October last year, shocking I know!

Just a quick note to say that my Mostphotos.com portfolio is now deleted.
It seemed a waste of space, I rarely checked the site and never sold anything, better to delete my account. At least Yaymicro has sold 1 image.

Its taken a while but I just made my first sale at YayMicro.com may there be many more!

Lookstat have released another feature:

“We just released a new feature that allows you to view thumbnails of all the images that sold over a particular time period, from all the microstock sites we support. You get to the feature by clicking on the ‘Earnings’ link on the Dashboard above the Top Earners thumbnail strip.

You can filter the list by site and you can click on any image to get that image’s sales history. It’s a simple addictive feature and we hope you enjoy using it. Feedback, as always is welcome.

(Also, we hear you loud and clear re: getting more sites into the system. Fotolia is coming soon!)”

I’ve merged the first two pages of image thumbs to make the image below, looks pretty cool…

Pretty funky stuff guys, things can only get better with more agencies added 🙂
*note: looking at the thumbnails its pretty easy to see that there are a few image matching problems across the sites*
