First Isolated picture sold

Laser Range Meter Isolated on White

As I wrote on the previous article,

I tried to upload some isolated pictures.

I has been very fast to have a first sale.

I got a 6 credits sale with the laser meter nine days after the upload.

It doesn't reimbursed yet my investment for the tent but I have intention to upload more later.

This sale encourages me to browse again the database of DT. I think I found something which can have hundred and hundred sales ... guess what it is?

1) It is quite simple to capture.

2) No need to make have a complicated composition

3) No need to have a sophisticated lightning.

4) Every editor need it for their composition.

For me the answer is "BACKGROUND/TEXTURE"

I started last week-end with three pictures of nylon, compressed chipboard and leather skin texture.

I am so impatient to see what will turn out with this three picture in terms of acceptance/rejection/sales.

@Livingstonatlarge: Hups! I have to take care about this issues. So far, I have one rejected because DT do not look for the leather textures anymore. Quite disappointed. I think they want to have few to increase sales of those which are uploaded already.

@Johnnydao: I use the plumb tool to isolated the picture by zooming to 200% usually. I do not save the clipping path. I don't think that PS embedded it in the JPEG file. If not I don't know how the buyer can ask for it. I used to crop a little bit inside the object itself or cut out the shadows. You have a sharp eyes guy ;) for the redish part. It is a little side effect of the plumb curve tools.

well done on the sale and best of luck for your niche

Congrats on your first isolated picture. How are you isolating your shots? I use the Pen Tool (PS CS5) and zoom in at least 300%. Are you saving the clipping path tool? I heard it's useful for the buyers to have the clipping path. Small, very minor things I saw in your laser device photo. I can see an orange/reddish spot: one at the end of the black strap (top far left) and another spot at the top left corner of the device. Other than that, it's a great photo. Keep it up.

I agree about the background/textures. The thing is, they have to be perfect corner to corner and they have to be really unique. I got a few kicked but I also had a few accepted recently and I have more in the review.
