    A month ago DT changed the levels of the prices per image, here it is the link where you can see these changes: Levels Update Now it is easier for our images to reach levels, for example before for a level 4 an image needed 25 sales, now an image only needs 10 sales. That... More

  • Sales trends

    by Zenonk | 29th of May, 2012

    well I have read about how sales are going up and down and how you should grow your portfolio to make it more stable and that it is seasonal for some people. We all probably know that and should acknowledge it, but I had a best month ever in April and this month is going... More

    by Lauriey | 16th of May, 2012

    Exactly two years from the day I joined here I've hit a milestone... my 5th time cashing out! When I joined, I was nervous. I took it slow and tried to pick the best of my images only to submit. I was nervous, but it did lead to a high acceptance ratio! It's a good... More

    by Racheld32 | 9th of May, 2012

    So I have been uploading pictures to my portfolio, and in the last month and a half of uploading, I am up to 17 pictures, which is decent for a VERY part time photographer. I have still not had any sales which is disappointing, but not unexpected for a newbie with a small... More
  • 300$

    by Ewamewa2 | 8th of May, 2012

    After almost 2 years my total revenue crossed 300$. I totally agree with sellers saying that the more pictures, the more earnings. Collecting the first 100 $ took me a year, the next 200$ less than half a year each. It is not much, but so far I have uploaded 244 photos,... More
