I have just got my acceptance percentage up to 80% from a low of 57% the first month or two of uploading to Dreamstime. So for anyone new my tip would be check your images carefully for blemishes and noise as a starting point and be a little selective. Now if I have any doubts about the quality I don't upload it. I'll add a couple of images from my latest uploads. Happy snapping :) continue reading

Have waited few days,a week or so to see if something was going to change;the point is that a week ago I was uploading some pictures when I noticed that the maximum amount of pictures I could upload decreased from 70 per week to 12 per week.Now I understand that the quality of pictures is something important,even understand that too much pictures uploaded with nosense is frustrating for everyone,but that number is really too small.I'm just an hobbiest so I wasn't maybe... continue reading
After many months of learning the hard way, my acceptance ratio is almost back to 50%.I am at 49.6% right now and hope to get back into the upper half by next month.Climbing the ladder after falling down to almost 30% has been tough.I highly recommend that new comers really watch your ratio and do not let it drop too far. continue reading

Interesting thing I noticed about my portfolio. Perhaps it is true of your portfolio too.35% of my downloads come from 4% of my images (I'm excluding free images in my download count).Boy, if I could only figure out what works on those 4% of my images - and could reproduce it on 100% of my images - wouldn't that be nice.How about you?Take the top 4% of your images (the top 4% that have been downloaded the most) - what percentage of your total downloads do those top... continue reading
It's a little after 8:00 AM at my house, the 1st of December, it's snowing, my acceptance rate today is 100%, I got 100 on-line last month and a little over 1000 total.Now, I would like to finish the year at 100% and get another 100 for the month but with the crazy holiday activity coming up I doubt I can get the 100 done and since I can't judge my photos well, I doubt the 100% will last into tomorrow.......however, these numbers sound good for now, so I will take them! continue reading
