1 December 2009: Imagecatalog has now closed. This post is for archive reference only. last site rating before this site was de-listed was 2/10
Image catalog is more than 2 years old at time of writing this review. For some agencies it is normal for 'gradual market growth' over several years, but imagecatalog do at the moment have a somewhat disappointing alexa rank (indication of site traffic). They don't seem to be attracting a lot of new images.
Overall the site operation is good, and has some nice features, good 'views' stats and a handy photographer handbook with lots of useful tips.
As of May 2009 I am no longer uploading to image catalog, after building a portfolio on their site of around 180 images, I have still seen zero sales over the past three months, and zero sales in total since I started uploading almost a year ago.
During my time uploading I noticed a distinct lack of care in image reviews, whole batches of different subjects rejected for the same reason; rejection emails from different batches of images arriving in batches all timed within a minute of each other.
I only recommend imagecatalog for microstock photographers who wish to gamble their time on less proven sites. There are a lot of 'little' microstock sites, and some, perhaps including this one will not make viable long-term businesses, conversely, some may blossom and it's good to be on the bandwagon from the start.
