Almost back to 50%

After many months of learning the hard way, my acceptance ratio is almost back to 50%. I am at 49.6% right now and hope to get back into the upper half by next month. Climbing the ladder after falling down to almost 30% has been tough. I highly recommend that new comers really watch your ratio and do not let it drop too far.

I think it all depends where you are on your own personal journey! To be honest, I'm still at the stage when I feel proud of myself every time I get a photo accepted & don't really care too much about my acceptance rate (which, yes, is low but climbing ...) For me, getting the rejections has been the only way to learn, so I don't regret anything I've submitted, even tho' I now know some of the images were quite awful! I suppose it's about learning to balance risk-taking/creativity with what you've learnt Dreamstime like/don't like ... tricky!

Yes after a some continuos refusals I put more effort specially in key wording and descriptions, now I maintain (so far) at a ratio of 81%, I would also like to know if the thing about increased sales at high acceptance ratios is a rumor or true..

I also dropped to about 30%, now I'm 54.1%... It's a hard and long way to learn...

Iam going up too, Iam on 68 now. Last 10 slaes got 100 % so I got about 5% up. Now I think twice which pic to upload and which not. Iam sure the acceptance ratio has some influance on sales. if anyone know what it exactly is just tell. I have heard that more acceptance ration you have the upper will your images be in search resoults. Dont know if this is true.

Yeah .. same for me, I'm at 41% after I started in catastrophic fashion with a 16% and a 5.6% in September and October 2010... I've been regularly between 50% and 62% since.

I've been guilty of submitting files a bit too quickly far too many times ;)

Well done anyway.. keep it up!

Interesting point. I reached 59.7 and have fallen back to 56,8 or thereabouts. I have tried to see why...... its possibly due to short winter days and poor natural light on occasions..... concept macro images which I mainly attempt aren't suited to flash........... Also as the data base grows meeting quality requirements gets tougher. Creating original concepts also gets tougher when you've done over 1000 images. What do you and others think about these points ? David.
