Advice on Photographs

Looking for advice on my pictures i already have up and whats the best thing to try a sell?

I have tried some different things but don't really know what to take/ make so looking for some idea on what sells best or what is selling well. I have access to a number of different software, so can make images as well as take them.

Also what sort of are there some tags that are better than other and does the quality of the description really matter?

Any help would be gratefully receiver many thanks :)

before you go to shoot pictures, try to think what keywords your pictures are going to have if you will upload them. Then, go to DT and try to find pictures with those keywords. You will see how big is the competition in terms of number and quality and if it make sense to add another pile of similar pictures, the same topic. Also you will see the number of downloads on the competetive pictures already uploaded. You then see if there is a demand for your topic once the picture is uploaded. Even if there are a lot of pictures on the same topic, consider if your pictures are at least a little bit different, more creative etc.. On the other side you might see there is a little competition on your planned topic and thus I would go for it and shoot.

Learn from every upload, and in your free time visit profile pages from oher photographer and see what sells.

this is a good place to take some advice and trying to understand...but... if I have some (not one, some) good ideas to sell is better I take the photos of that idea before share with someone else, you don't think so? If you have loads of photos upload them and the market will teach what sell better.

I've ran out of idea as such more of looking for some influence i have thousands of photos but dont know what sort to upload, say do macros sell better than landscapes or animals better than fruit and veg etc... I have loads photos but just don't really know what sort to upload.

I have to say if you've run out of ideas at 5 uploads you might find stock photography tough going. You're going to need at least 100 photos just start seeing some return.
