Well I have been at Shutterstock for 40 days now and frankly I have been to busy to prepare and upload any new images for the last few weeks but I'm very pleased as the downloads continue to tick over.

In 40 days I have had 122 downloads and 12 from refered photographers giving me almost $25.00 and because Shutterstock has lowered the payout to $75.00 I'm now a 1/3 of the way to getting some cash!

Most of my photo's are dpc out takes so there is no extra work involved, if anyone else is interested or thinking about trying out a stock site I would highly recommend Shutterstock here is a link to Shutterstock

nicely done. I've been a member since Nov 18 and I've made $5.43 from 29 images. I'd better get some more posted ;)

by the way, the shutterstock link in your sig doesn't go to your gallery, it goes to your referral.

How many uploads?

I've uploaded 18 and had 33 downloads and 45 referred downloads in about the same amount of time.

By the way, everyone...this is the link you should use to get to shutterstock!

It's supposed to go to the referral to that if you sign up via this link I get a commission on your downloads : )
</poaching>

I have 45 photos approved, with 39 downloads of mine and 68 by referred photographers, so I'm almost up to $10. I'm mostly happy that 20 of those photos has had at least one download, although none has had more than four.

Anyone want to guess the top photo?

The first one is tied with one other for top spot : ) -- good guess!
The second one has only been there for a week or so and has only one download so far : (
-- but, do you think it's a decent picture? I've had no feedback on that one other than it getting accepted.

I too have put up some images, and have made some money, but I would like to encourage folks to check out this new site out of the UK
null
They are offering FAIr money for out images and not pennies. I think we on DPC have a lot of good images, if we give them away for nothing why should anyone pay a reasonable fee. Perhaps put a few on shutterstock and put some on here.
I have had 135 downloads at shutterstock in about 5 weeks, making a wopping 27.00 if I was to sell one image on pinupinoo I would make that amount and I can have some pride in my images.
Just a thought.

I signed up with Shutterstock on December 1 and am up to $11.40 with 56 downloads. I have no referrals because I haven't tried to do that yet. Here's my gallery and this is my most popular download so far.

By contrast, I have $2.00 on Dreamstime and $0.90 on iStockphoto.

I had 93 downloads in 2 days at istock with this image.
only 1 download in the first 8 days it was up!
(guess photo of the week helps)

73 downloads at 14.60 at shutterstock. No referrals :(
Compared to 5.00 at dreamstine and 8.70 at Istock.
I dont currently have many uploads, but it's certainly addictive.

I've been there since late October. Haven't done nearly as well as some of you, but I'm up to $11.00 and quickly approaching the amount I've done at iStock since late June. Sadly I have no referrals to help me.

My gallery and my most popular picture - which is a slightly edited version of a dpc entry.

Ok, I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 50 (including these numbers) whoever guesses closest by tomorrow morning (12/16/04) @ 9:00am will get my referral.

Post your guess and your referral link. I can't promise i'll be making any money or anything, but atleast there is a possibility! ;)

Any duplicate guesses will be ignored. YAY A GAME IN THE FORUMS!

Damn, that counts me out. My referal link is number 156. Doesn't look like I'll ever make any money that way :(

Forgot my referral link. So as not to show edit on my post, I am posting separately:

//submit.shutterstock.com/?ref=65

My guess was 22.
12/15/2004 09:32:43 PM · #22

bah...I'll play

Most downloads of a photo: 7
Total downloads: 22
Most downloads in a day: 4

Not bad, I'm not going to quit my day job or anything, but these photos would be otherwise sitting on my hard drive doing nothing but taking up space.
