Well I hit a milestone, i obtained 30 images on-line, no sales yet. I figure increasing volume, will increase visibility, which seems to be happening, and will eventually lead to sales. As you can see from my portfolio i have an eclectic mix of images. I have also been writing blogs which I hope leads to increased visibility as well. How does one increase their database visibility? I haven't figured that one out yet and may have to do with sales...

Another option is to go exclusive. The ranking of your files will be then much higher ;). You can choose for it after 50 images are accepted.

I can't go exclusive, I am already on 3 other stock photo sites. I can only have some of my images exclusive to dreamstime.

Then the best way is like previous said shoot the right images and do good keywording. Don’t forget to look at quality off course and send only your best images. Don’t give up and keep uploading. If you keep doing that you will see result after a while.

Well I hit another milestone of 40 images on line and continue to contribute an eclectic mix of images and one illustration. I'm in Vancouver shooting my next batch of images and will begin to upload some of these images for review next week. As I have learned through what's been accepted and currently on the site from other contributors how to shoot differently for commercial stock.

While I continue to shoot images that I like, I am taking pictures that I think would make a great stock photo.

Well, I'm a returning Newbie from a couple of years back. I was very pleased to learn of the increased number of weekly uploads (140) so I so I uploaded about that number to build up my inventory. Most of those images have been accepted for sale elsewhere. But, I neglected to change the Title field from the file name (Carly20130503-0587) to a more descriptive form (Woman Looking Over a White Lace Fan). By the time I was able to start editing the field most were refused, so I have a low acceptance rate and my search placement has suffered.

Oh well, live and learn, all agencies have different rules, be sure you read them closely!

Michael!

The waiting time is an estimation, yesterday I got approved 11 photos that were still showing a waiting time of 48 hours.

Another question for everyone, how does one increase their database exposure? I see the portfolio exposure increases as your photo volumes increase. thank you

Also, what dictates the level on the photograph? I notice many of my are level 1 but a few are zero.

I assume this has to do with the pricing but did not see any difference between 1 and 0.

thank you

Increase of data exposure = number of images approved.

Being newer than 6 months, you shouldn't have any images at 0. If you do contact support. Though I'm fairly new myself and could be wrong on both counts.

Had a significant jump in approved images. Yeah! but have a lot of editing to do for my next batch of submissions...

Is anyone on other stock sites? I have had more success in downloads of my images on another site..

Just spent a week on Mount Desert Island, Maine and now comes the fun task of weeding through images and identifying those that I believe will make great stock photos. I took a bunch of pictures of the rocky coast of Maine and hope that DT will find some worthy.
