Getting into Dreamstime

Here is my first image accepted. Wow! For anyone who try to get involved in micro-stock photography, I can say that Dreamstime is not the fastest one. It takes forever to get your images reviewed. :)

But... lets look at it from the bright side. The reviewing process itself is slow and one could be a bit uncomfortable or even disappointed to be rejected after so much waiting. I think this forces contributor to be on the right track, to think in advance, to try to judge it's own image properly before updating. You just want to be more sure that image is up to the guidelines. I found myself rejecting my own image and not uploading at all.

On the other hand, I have some images rejected by Dreamstime. But what I like is that waiting for review is worth since the rejection is well explained and you can really see what is wrong without visiting the critique forum.

So, comparing to Dreamstime veterans I'm still a baby but I think I'll stay here for a while. Dreamstime is not just image selling service, it is great resource for overall learning and developing your photograph skills.

DT is faster than ******** or ******** and I am not good enough yet for i stock. I think the rejection is hard to take at first but it is good as it makes you think !! I was very down when I first started to try to get in to stock but I am now on a fast learning curve shame I did not do it years ago and this site has helped me the most.
