Rreport for Month 23, 24, 25 ( see November earnings )
To speed up a bit, this report has only charts and overall summary for the last 3 months.
So what’s new… At this time I got a wonderful Wacom Tablet Intuos 4 M, which helps me incredibly when processing photos and free-hand drawing. A digital pen tablet is every illustrators dream…
Lightroom is the new application I use.. and hate it’s messy interface, but it has an amazing power to remove noise and add sharpness to photos taken in really bad conditions.
Got it tested already by submitting several great but difficult to correct photos and surprisingly.. they got approved. Wouldn’t even try to submit them after processing with Photoshop and Camera Raw, because they would not pass. Even that I got created a nice collection of layered sharpen/denoise actions… Adobe Lightroom is now a real time saver.
In the mean time the photo “Project 365″ was born, also I added a lot of new designs to Zazzle store and managed to divide the time for microstock and creating products.
Now only need to find some time to fix the Shutterstock add-on :-/
Another news is I expanded pure blogging with Squidoo to get more powerful tools for building more interactive and informational sites than I could using only WordPress, Blogger or Posterous.
It’s an useful and easy to use platform. I often like to update posts/articles and doing it here or on any other blogging platform gives no effect, as the typical “blog article” is seen more related to specific date/time than to the subject. Also the community and social features there are just amazing.
Overall monthly results
December -17% to best month
January +2% to best month
February +16% to best month and that way February 2011 becomes a new BME
Added Zazzle overall performance to comparison chart.
