It certainly is a downhill trend! This started about a year ago almost overnight. It's quite depressing!! It's almost like people aren't seeing our work!!

It's a first:  today, SS earned less than any of the other agencies to which I submit (AS, DT & IS).  This has never happened before and is especially disheartening since my portfolio at each of these agencies is considerably smaller than here at Shutterstock.

I have no idea whats happening either.  It is quite depressing.  I thought I'd build up a great portolio for my retirement, nearly 5,000 images now, was going great a couple of years ago, now its the worst I've ever had.  Back to what I earned with only 100 images way back when I first started :o(

Hi Steve, 

Out of interest, how do you know what you earned "today" on IS? 

Thanks Gary

Gary,

You caught me, I guessed, based upon past performance.  Sorry, it made a better story.  The rest is all true, trust me.?

Upload not working properly again and my total for the month keeps resetting to zero!

It's not even Friday or the weekend and things already don't work! This site is so broken.

Really weird rejections, something to do with the keywords not being in English!!!! Whaaat!!! I think it's the automated part of the process!!! Sales quiet again.

must say,  July sales are absolutely devastating ... have not seen anything like that, not even during Christmas days.

Total disaster

My volume is half what it was last month.  My friend's sales have tanked as well.  Woe!  Perhaps the buyers are all on vacation...which is where I would be if my sales were better :D

Or perhaps more rogue sites popping up giving our images away free.
