Perhaps it has to do with people are there to see images and are not interested in clicking on other sites?
I have no idea as I don't have any image sites, but maybe that is a possibility.
Also, as you get more impressions, you may start getting clicks.

I have a section of my site that is devoted to images and earns a bit... but not a great amount. The CTR for this section is very low... never more than a percent or two even though the ads are fairly well targeted (I assume... what is the viewer actually interested in?).
I typically see about 1500-2000 impressions a day in this section, which earns a few dollars. I don't think that images are generally very high converters so to earn anything serious... you need quite a lot of clicks.

I have a site that gets around 10,000 impressions a day. I only have the image pages running ads (adlinks only), I typicallly only get 1%-2% CTR, though the ads are all on target.
Believe it or not I have found adlinks work much better on image pages than the normal ad blocks. Only exception is when the adblocks have an image.
I think most people searching for images don't spend much time reading text, which is why the adlinks work better then a full blown ad.

My site also experience a low CTR and the revenue also very small.
Most of the picture pages are walpapers, I guest this is the reason why the revenue is so small.

Hi, lets hear from the end user.
I have often visited image sites. And I can't remember having clicked on any "text ads" or "text banners" before when I'm at these sites. However, I have clicked on "image ads".
When I'm at these sites, my number 1 purpose is to look at or find images. So my eyes will first scan and look at all the images that I can see on my monitor screen. Most of the time I just ignore the "text ads"
