Sales are still decreasing, only one through Eyeem / Getty this month and a few through Adobe. Eyeem seems to have been a bit erratic since they put their tiered payment structure in, but it’s more probable that my sales have dropped along with the quality of photos I’m uploading. Garbage in, garbage out 🙂Continue reading “Sales in March 2021”
January was pretty good – sales from Getty, Eyeem Market, Bytedance (?), Adobe, and Alamy (!). This is the first time I’ve heard of Bytedance, another Eyeem partner, and the first time I have sold anything through either Alamy or Eyeem’s direct Market.
After January being pretty good, February was rubbish with two small sales through Adobe. This is the first month in several where I haven’t sold anything through Eyeem’s Getty partnership.
Next month Eyeem will be bringing in their tiered payments system where high-value sellers receive a higher percentage of the sale. I have just managed to squeeze into the 35% category – better than 25% but far short of the holy grail of 55%.
A number of people in the Eyeem Facebook group are complaining about the payment structure and threatening to remove their photos and close their accounts. Hopefully, they all do, I’d rather be a small fish in a shrinking pond than a small fish in an expanding one… 🙂Continue reading “Sales January and February 2021”
Once again, repeat sales of two images and a chain & cog that has not sold previously. All sold through Getty – I am yet to have any direct Eyeem Market sales. The price paid for two of the images was rubbish, but the golf ball and tee sold for more than usual.Continue reading “Eyeem / Getty December 2020”
Getty sales pretty much the same images as last month but slightly better prices. Golf ball and tee sold twice, loudspeakers sold for a reasonable amount (slightly better than the 50 cents or so I often receive), and the obligatory Pinned Map sold once again.Continue reading “Eyeem / Getty November 2020”

Having had quite a few PicFair advertisements polluting my Facebook stream over the last few months, I decided to give them a go about a few weeks ago. I should note that the entirety of my Facebook stream is pretty much polluted by default, but PicFair somehow managed to stand out a bit amongst the flotsam and jetsam. A lesser pollutant in a sea of drivel.Continue reading “PicFair experience”
Not actually a moving story, more a story about moving. Actually, I’m just changing web hosts 🤔
Having had the davehillnz.wordpress.com address since around 2016, and largely ignoring it until recently, I had no reason to be frustrated by the limitations of a free WordPress account.Continue reading “Moving story.”
Possibly due to Google’s algorithms, I’ve been seeing a log of articles on the importance of key wording over they last few weeks. There seems to be a large number of articles that stress the importance of keywords to successful sales of stock photos.Continue reading “Keywords, Wordroom, and Lightroom.”
