There's not much to mention this month. But it's worth noting that Dreamstime is another stock agency which has 10 million of images and stock photos in its base by now.

Fotolia and 123RF also have completed remarkable milestones: 11 and 8 millions of images respectively.

This month Shutterstock has the greatest growth rate compared to previous month among all microstocks at

During this month only Depositphotos have added less images than in previous one.

The remaining of iStockphoto and Bigstock maintain stable growth of image galleries.

Next month you can expect 8 million of images at iStockphoto and much slower growth of image galleries due to Christmas and New Year holidays.
