Get your pictures reviewed faster

Hi, Friends.

I read many times on message board about photographers worrying that their images are reviewed by editors very slowly. To avoid this I use the following simple trick which I desided to share.

When a bunch of pictures is ready and processed, I upload them all at once through FTP and let them wait online - the time of review on DT starts to be counted from that moment. Then I add description to a certain amount of pictures allowed by my acceptance ratio, and the rest continue to wait. Usually when I have a new bunch of images online, some of the old ones are still Unfinished. So, when comes the turn for them to get Pending they stay in this box for a very short time, some almost immediately become n/a. This way the process goes smoothly.

Hope it will help someone to fasten uploads.

Good tip! Unluckely I don't have so mani images... But I'll do my best in the future ;)

Uploading this way you can also ensure that you won't have many similar image thus avoiding refusals for too many identicals and having a cleaner portfolio.

I know this feature available ;-)
this way you have the ability to select the best from you list uploaded earlier and make the correct selection for current files. but you also need to have a pack of ones to post for review ;-)

Great tip! I have begun the same process and I am finding out that if you stay on top of this process, will allow you the chance to remove images in cue that DT feels will not be productive. For me it was using an aperture that did not allow for a sharp depth of field for the type of subject matter I was shooting (breakfast table shots) where all of the items on the table were not in clear focus. This little bit of info allowed me to remove others of the same set prior to them being reviewed. So now I can re-shoot that set, keep my acceptance ratio in check, and gain a better acceptance ratio by loading images that are closer to what the DT reveiwers are looking for. Great tip!

Good advise! I suggested that to one member who was complaining why he's not going exclusive... But it's good to make the topic for who doesn't know. Thank You.
