1000 online photos!! A good reason to say Hello :)

Hi everyone. I have recently reached 1000 online photos. When it comes to online social platforms I am like an old man who is given a smartphone and who somehow understands that the device is doing a lot more but he simply uses it to answer calls ☺But 1000 photos is a landmark important enough (at least for me ☺) to overcome my online social disabilities and simply say: “Hi, I’m here!” This may be also my first blog post ever!Those 1000 photos were quite a journey for me. A very interesting... continue reading

Distorted pixels?

Don't be too happy about the title. I'm not going to tell you the exact process to get rid of it. Call it a trade secret reserved for the persistent guys? I'll tell you what they are exactly referring to - fix it yourself. (I'm soo mean?)I recently intentionally uploaded a set of overprocessed images. Okay, it might bring my AR to 30% or some day to a negative number...but it doesn't bother me much. Common sense says I'll be able to upload only 20 images a week for the lack of time. And getting... continue reading

Isolated in Stock Language

I'm not a big fan of photographing isolated objects, but from my experience as a buyer for three years, I feel pretty qualified for writing on this subject. So here it is:"Isolated" in Microstock Language means plain, shadowless, easy to remove background. So, when you're using this word in your title, description or keywords, you must ensure that you have submitted a well-lit and good contrast subject on a plain, solid color background."Isolated" means that the... continue reading

Two weeks already

My experience of contributor has only two weeks’ time.In this short period, I submitted 41 accepted pictures, 14 rejected, 9 pending by today and no sale yet. I learned from the rejection of what DT wanted as pictures and what DT don't want as picture in their database.The given reasons are objectives and justified for all my rejected pictures until today.I browsed the database and had seen that there is not a lot of picture list on DT regarding "clingendael" Japanese Garden. So, I went... continue reading

Accidental approving?

I have habit (last couple months) to upload 10 files...and DT team has got habit to refuse one of them:)OK, nobody and nothing is perfect (I mean own pictures). Some are rejected for Poor execution, some - for Too many on site but today I've got this reason:- File approved by accident.

Folks, did anybody ever receive such reason? continue reading
