Last month in dreamstime was quite good for me.110 image uploaded (and only 44 refused) and 8 images sold.After september my portfolio reached the number of 1535 image, and it is a good number, although I know I have other images to create and upload in dreamstime.There are two kind of microstock artists, I think: the lucky ones (few images but many sales) and the less lucky ones (many images and few sales)...I am in the second category, so I know I have to work everyday to be seen in... continue reading
