A dollar per year for each image

Editing is also a factor. Digital photographers tend to shoot more. If you upload a lot of similars then revenue per image is likely to be lower. A tightly edited port can sell just as well as a loosely edited port twice its size.

Alamy:  way less than $1pipy

Niche editorial agency: $6pipy

Commercial aggregator: $4pipy (slipped from about $10pipy due to Getty mostly selling at microstock prices)

An experiment with a single microstock agency with a handful of images: on-target for $4pipy


Note1: all numbers are NET

Note2: very few common images between the four above. All images are now shot with a particular agency in mind.

All the above except Alamy ( niche, commercial,microstock) edit and select the content that they accept from you with a specific market in mind.


Self-edit to the rescue. Plus research. Plus shooting for the market. My acceptance rate is >95% for all of the above.

Your mileage may vary.
