I have done the same, I guess donating is not that bad, because you will get exposure for more sales.

I have an image online that just sat there for 4 years nearly and now it has licenced 3 times and been viewed more than 1200.

My advice would be to think very carefully about donating, the few cents it costs for rekeywording could be a very good investment!

One of my images is in donating and within a couple of days of becoming FREE it was downloaded over 10 times and up to 20.

I never noticed any appreciable increase in sales by donating.

Hi Onime - you are not getting paid, this is the whole idea of donating. Even though you are not paid you can get some new sales, this is what the blog all about.

I donated some images here on DT and now I found them for free in many sites I don't even contribute to (probably partners). I will donate only those images that in addition do not have sales in other sites. I am not exclusive and many images that do not sell on DT, sell in other places so be aware!

My preferred option will be "disable". In fact, after donating 6 images, I disabled 2 due to the fact that they had about 250 downloads each...if they want them they better pay...

I donated a half-dozen images that had no sales after 4 years. Those images, now free, were then downloaded several times. My paid downloads did not increase. Since then I've opted to disable the files.
