How to make model assessment better

There would be a great feature to have in DT management area - seeing total earnings per model. For example, we have "Photos with this model", and we could have also "Earnings with this model".

Though, it wouldn't be accurate, as it's aften more than one model on your images, but it's representative anyway. What do you think, friends? continue reading
