Hang in there Newbies

I've reached a personal milestone today. I know to some of the contributors here this is really nothing. But to me it is definitely encouraging for myself. I've reach a total revenue of $500 USD and reached 2.5 downloads per image. I'm quite happy. I've been here for just over 1 year. Every month's return has gotten better and better. And payouts seem to have come faster and faster.

I would still classify myself as a newbie compared to some of the contributors here on Dreamstime. But to all those Newbies, hang in there and you'll see your work payout at the end. Time is on your side when it comes to stock photos.

Below is the milestone photo.

Best of luck.

Thanks Retina2020, I have spent most of my time concentrating on getting images uploaded and accepted that I may have overlooked this portion a little. I will go through images and check keywords and see if this helps.
