Hello Everyone

Hello to Everyone,

I just became a member yesterday and would like some help/advice on how many images I should post to get started. Would you suggest a low number 5 - 10 or a larger number (~100)?

Thanks for your help !!

Good luck and welcome...Maybe get the first uploads going by uploading 10 and check the approval ratio. See reasons for rejections and use them to assess the rest of your images. That will make it easier.

Approval ratio affects how many images you can upload per week so don't go crazy the first time and end up with low ratio and limited uploads.

Hello, I would say pretty much same.. Don't rush with uploads, I made this mistake already in my first couple weeks.. ..I am also new here.. It is really easy to reduce your acceptance ratio, it's happened to me really fast.. If you have some same style pictures, upload just 1 or 2 of them and see what results are.. Good luck to you and most important - have fun!!!

Mcharles999, you can upload a lot of images, they will sit on the unfinished files waiting for you to add a title, description, keywords, and to categorize them.

Than you keywords some of them, say, 10 and wait for them to be analyzed, the others you live untouched in the unfinished files.

As soon as you realize who are being accepted you can keyword and categorize the others, since they are there for a while it will take a shorter time for them to be analyzed.

And post here once some of them are accepted so we can get to know your work!

I agree, take your time. Start with a few images and while you are waiting for the images to be reviewed spend some time reading the message boards and blogs. They will help you understand better how to work with your images. Patience and doing your homework are key.
Currently my primary camera is a Fuji XT-1.

I also would agree to what Afagundes said. And before uploading use the search to see how many of the images you are going to upload are already online. If there are already 2000 pics available it will be very hard for you to get your image accepted or later also sold. The less pics of a subject are available and the more outstanding your photos / illustrations are the better!
Have fun!

There are many issues that can be treated, depending on the type of photography you work in any case I always prefer to go slowly proving
