Don´t give up!

Hi,this is my first blog :)When I started with DT 1.5 years ago, I had a lot of rejected photos. I didn´t want to give up, even if it was frustrating.

When I upload now, nearly every photo is accepted.Even if I have just 31 sales yet, every sale makes me proud that someone likes or need my photo. And I´m proud that... continue reading

Into the 300s

Its been 2 years since I joined Dreamstime, and after some struggle to get my photos approved, Ive finally reached my 300th photo online. Getting them up can be tough initially, but with perseverance, one can work their way up.What Ive learned is- look into where few have gone. Ive had a thought that maybe one could generate income from resources that many others may have access to, so I looked into oil palm. So far, it turns out to be the work horse out of my gallery.... continue reading

Dealing with Rejection

Having been with DT for nearly a year I have experienced a range of highs and lows. Something I suspect most of us have to deal with is the rejection of images. In trying to analyse patterns in the rejections I have had I have noticed that they generally come in one of six forms;1. Uploading too many similar images to your portfolioThis is something I did a lot of early on and unfortunately did not learn my lesson quick enough as I had quite a few rejections early on.

No more roses?

25 photos or how to minimize rejects

Finally I have 25 photos!!! I’m half the way to becoming a “photographer working exclusively with Dreamstime.com”. It’s really not so easy to start, so many rejects. I came to conclusion that there are several ways to minimize reject:First of all analyze quality (sharpness andcomposition ).If they are not perfect, there is no need to waste time processing these pictures. If you doubt to send picture or notbecause of the quality, don’t send them. They won’t be approved.If you... continue reading

My first approved Graphics

Hello my DT family,This is really a very happy moment for me that I've my 2 out of 3 graphics approved. The third on is under pending approval. The interesting thing is that as I uploaded them they got approved in no time (within 5 min).I was kind of scared regarding my graphics.

I used to think that what if my graphics got... continue reading
