Doc Posted January 6, 2016 Share Posted January 6, 2016 Hi all, The new much larger thumbnails came in on 24.9.15. In general they have been well received, but I noted that the "portrait" orientation images were disadvantaged as a result, look relatively smaller, and can be overlooked in searches, or so it seemed to me. I looked at my statistics to see what if any difference this had made. Clearly its too soon to see from sales figures as they often lag by 3 months, but ZOOMS are fairly immediate. I looked at my zooms from 3 months prior to the change (Jul-Sept, 646 zooms), and compared them with the 3 months after the change (Oct-Dec, 717 zooms) to see if there was a significant difference in landscape and portrait images selected. I also, for interest, looked at my overall proportion of landscape to portrait oriented images Results: July-Sept inclusive, 646 zooms; 499 landscape (77.3%); 135 portrait (20.9%), 12 pan/square (1.8%) Oct-Dec Inclusive 717 zooms 576 landscape (80%); 128 portrait (17.7%), 13 pan/square (1.9%) From these figures I would say that there has been no significant difference from before to after. I dont think I have enough numbers to say there has been a slight reduction in zooms for portrait oriented images. My collection of images consists of the following: Total Images on sale: 18,902 Landscape: 13,046 (69%) Portrait: 5,335 (28.2%) Pan/Square: 422 (2.2%) Overall the number of portrait images in my collection amounts to ~28%, but the numbers zoomed appear to be between 17 and 20% One of the reasons I was interested to look at this was because I thought I had a greater than average % of portrait images and hoped I would not be disadvantaged by the new thumbnails. Doesn't look I am! Interested to hear what others think and what proportions your collections consist of! Happy New Year Kumar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
