Just the other day I had my first image reach level 2. Hopefully it does not hinder sales on this image due to its increased price. What are your experiences with the different levels? Does it lower your sales when they level up or are people willing to pay more? Anyway, here is the image that is my first level 2.
I have no evidence to suggest that increased levels reduce the sales of an image. My most downloaded image sold 6 times in the first month it was online, followed by 9, 6, 1, 8, 6, and 8 times in the months that followed. Of the last 10 sales, 6 were fully paid credit purchases. I've also got an assingment entry that is my best seller, and it started at level 5 (hence why it is my best seller in dollar terms).
