Beginning a Collection

I know that some old hands on Dreamstime are very familiar with collections, but I have just discovered this feature and created my first collection.

As I was searching Dreamstime, I realized that it is much easier to find images of Christian houses of worship than images of sites and buildings representing other religious traditions. As a college instructor in world religions, I thought it might be helpful for users to have a collection of houses of worship from different faith traditions. And so:

I encourage everyone with images of houses of worship from around the world to add to this collection. I know there are some terrific images out of there of temples, mosques, gurdwaras, shrines. . .

I have already gone to see this series of yours, a group of very beautiful pictures. On DT, I have some pictures of Chinese temple too.

Hi! I am new to this collection thing. Can you please tell me how you can list photos to your collection. I have just created one collection, but I can´t figure out how to add more photos? How can I list my photos in your collection?

Still only one download... but life in general is wonderful. Spring is coming to Texas so there will be some good flower opportunities. And we should be going down to the island soon so I can get some more South Padre shots.

As for uploads, my goal for now is to get to 50 accepted.

Oh - and I finally sold something on Zazzle! :)

Sounds like a good strategy to me.

How are things going in general for you? Uploads? Sales? Life?

Inspired by your collection, I thought about what collection I would really love to curate. And The Great State of Texas collection was born. Surprisingly there was no collection (as far as I could tell) devoted to the state. Anyway - it took me a while to figure out how to add a photo but I did figure it out. If you look at an image, there is a tab called "Tools". There you can send a comment to the photographer, add to a lightbox, or add to a collection. I sent a courtesy email to the photographer as well. Kinda fun! :) Thanks for piquing my interest. And also thanks for the church interiors idea - that is definitely another area of interest for me.
