You can not use 'resubmit' directly. Instead, when submitting new photo use the field 'comment to editor'. Explain there that this landscape is already presented in your portfolio (ID xxxxxxxxx) but you will disable it as soon as new image will be accepted.

Hope it helps.

Igor is right, you can replace your online images with better versions.

Just keep in mind that it will be treated like a new upload and all sales of that particular image will be resetted to zero.

Thank you. That two different versions of the photos can be online at the same time?

If two landscapes are similar to each other, inspector will not approve the new one. With a standard reason "Too much similar photos...". But if you attach comment to your submission (as I said above), then second landscape might be accepted and then you immediately disable the first one.

Landscapes do not sell unless spectacular. Dont replace very average with average . Look for more conceptual stock photos.

Several months ago I tried to replace an existing photo with an identical image that was better lit & was isolated on white. Even though I included a note to the reviewer to explain this was a better quality image & that I would disable the old image once the new one had been approved, the newer image was rejected for the reason "too many similars".

This was frustrating as the old image had sold several times and the "new" image was far superior to the old image as my photography & photoshop skills had improved since submission of the old image.

I thought it would be better for both me and for DT to have better quality images in my port, but there you go. So you may find your new image is refused, which affects your approval rating.

I guess it was a kind of misunderstanding of the reviewer. I did it dozen of times and it ever worked. Just try to write to support telling all the story mentioning IDs.

For another idea then shoot the same landscape shot but not in the middle of the day with harsh light, make it exciting, get a spectacular morning sunrise and the blue and golden hours as the light changes the colours of the scenery. Or get the golden and blue hours of an evening for a sunset, these sell much better than a generic landscape. Even still it has to be spectacular to generate sales.

Type in landscape on here and look for the best selling ones, copy space is something that can help sell a landscape shot. Good luck :)

Well I don't think you should really delete old ones. You could just upload and see if they accept the new one. If they do, good. If not, write to them. Or maybe crop, flip, etc so that you have a new photo seen in a different way. I have seen one particular photo of something sell better than similar ones. Angle of shooting and composition mean a lot.

This is a stock photo website, not fine art. The best selling landscapes are either breathtakingly beautiful or plain green grass fields with a nice blue sky and fluffy clouds that can be used to add text over. Most of us start in the same boat, rummage through our portfolio and see what we can get accepted, then comes the phase were you shoot everything around that you see. The only issue is that hundreds of thousands of people have beaten you to this so you need to work out what sells and go down that route. Much easier said than done. I see portfolios on here with 100 images and thousands of sale, but we also see portfolios with thousands of images and only a few sales for all that hard work. The key my friend is to work smart not hard. Again easy for me to say but I have not even come close to cracking it yet, I'm still learning and growing and have a long way to go to be "successful". Have fun but spend time looking at what sells, there is a game on here called stock rank, play this for a few hours, you will soon see what sells well and what does not.
