Check out my blog "My (almost) free lighting setup" for some tips on creating isolated images on white. Also, people pictures sell well. Good Luck.

Liza-Liza, lazy Liza:) Sorry for this word game! You are not newbie by time, why don't you upload more?? People say - don't speak about sales before you have 500 pics in portfolio! Sorry again, I'm old teacher and habit to critic is in my blood;)
Advise - OK, I have one. Don't take like ideal most popular pics on site. Many of them have got big points on time when stocks had very few of contributors and buyers were just without choice.
Good luck!
P.S. Like you I'm still without coffee from my DT earning...'coz I still didn't earn $100...and 'coz I hate coffee;))

Hello Liza! My advice is the same as the others:keep uploading!!! For my illustrations I use Illustrator, but you can try also Inkscape. On internet there are many tutorials that can help you :-)
Best of wishes, Francesca

I started with stock 10 months ago and my best advice is... try to get an understanding about what buyers want. My first submissions where mainly macro images (insects) and I soon discovered they did not sell well. Then I started with products shots. Had zero experience (no flash experience either) but sales increased a lot from there.

Isolations on white sell best (at least for me they do) and as Meriaam already said... upload on a regular basis. Your portfolio is still very small. Sales will increase also when there are more images to chose from!

Good luck!
