Hello all,With the upload of my six new photos, my acceptance ratio has increased from 72.1% to 76.5%!I think my mistake last month (my first month at Dreamstime) was that I uploaded too many at once, meaning that only nineteen out of thirty one were actually accepted...

After 4 years that I've been with DT I reached 1000 share photos online, all this with a bit of trouble by dedicating ourselves just a little of my spare time, always trying to figure out what types of waste is better picture send, trying a little everything and hoping to increase both sales and the number of photos accepted, I will continue to send photos to DT to get to the next milestone. continue reading
