> I have more than six months experience working on microstock. At The first weeks I had sent my photos via a web form, it was very slow and not convenient. Uploading of small amount of photos on just one stock took a bunch time and required constant control. Next, I learned about the possibility of uploading photos by the protocol FTP - it allowed to speed-up the process. Then I discovered the IPTC meta tags. By this time I was already registered on 4 stoks, i need to write notes about files uploaded... continue reading

Today I was really pleased to see the notification that my first set of photos had been accepted and uploaded on DreamsTime.I had been going through the site and looking at some of the popular pics. I was amazed at the quality and realized I have long way to go before I can call myself a good photographer.My interests in photography are landscapes, travel destinations and cuisines from all over the world, so I will start with adding more and more along those areas.Reading several posts from... continue reading
I've just started a month ago to upload on Dreamstime and I already have 135 files approved with 90,1% acceptance ratio.My pictures are seen but no sales yet while at the same time on ******** my acceptance ratio is a lot lower but some of my pics have been sold.

And usually how many pictures... continue reading

A short story of my previous month's performance and this current can give you some perspective and hope.Last month I had 18 sales, it's a bit higher than my monthly average (indeed a number I hope to increase).

As someone who is just taking my first tentative steps into the world of stock images, I am of course wondering what sort of images are most likely to be accepted.I would really prefer to not waste my time on images that really have no chance of being accepted due to the choice of subject.So what sort of images do appeal to micro-stock sites like dreamstime.com?I started out by looking at the FAQ section of the site, but didn't find the explanation offered there particularly helpful at first.... continue reading
Since I joined DT three years ago this is the first time I succeed in creating and uploading 100 images from scratch. It is only a personal and little satisfaction.
