He wrote that his income increased by 100% for each month…
I think what he did was the right thing, for himself.

Actually he wrote that on his own site (PeopleImages.com) revenue increased by 100% each month. Since we neither know what the initial revenue was nor how much he lost due to pulling his portfolio from other stock sites that statement doesn’t tell us anything at all about his earnings now…

well this is quite interesting. his website has a lot of functionality that photodune dreams off. But he has the same prices as on photodune. His take on how low stock photos are priced and how bad this type of business makes no sense.

Overall this was expected and we say it over the years. To compete you need to provide quality and very good user experience. If you don’t, then some new player will come to town and get your share.

How many photos he withdrawn from photodune?

Actually prices on his own website cover a wide range. normal images are similar to photodune but there are a lot that are much more expensive and cost several hundred dollars in full resolution…

I think he had about 60k pictures online? All of them are withdrawn…

Well, Yuri decided to move on and so his pictures are gone. Great for him! A photographer of his “size” knows what’s best for him.

I don’t see why PhotoDune should close down though! :) All you have to do is have a look around in photodune to see why!
