100th Sale. Some opinions about DT.


posted on 15th of april, 2010

Well, I'd like to share with you my great joy: today I had my 100th sale. This is the photo:


It is time for a little balance.
I'm in DT for three months, I have a portfolio of 527 images, and a radius of acceptance of 62.4% due to rejection by similar photos. I have two photographs of level 2, and sales are more or less constant since the beginning.
Comparing with other agencies, I have a very good impression of this site.
I have noticed that in DT, the pictures are not lost in a bottomless pit, because it sells a little of everything, I have many different photo sales, while in other sites is normal to sell a dozen pictures a bunch of times , and have the other photos with no sales and forgotten.
On the other hand, say that DT forums are one of the best. I've noticed that you can write all sorts of opinions and even to mention other sites without problem. Right, a round of applause for DT. Those who work for various agencies, you know what I mean. There are agencies that have a forum to say they have it, because they employ dictatorial rules, full of prohibitions, so that you can only say good things about the site, most lies. In addition, the peer environment, it is wonderful here. People will help you understand the operation and are nice and participatory.
One of the best things are the levels of the photos. Thus, the photos themselves are promoted, regardless of whether the photographer has many or few in the portfolio, and whether long or short sell.
Well, as not everything is always good, I'll say a few things that I don´t like:
I would like larger series of pictures to be accepted, because I've noticed that when the series do exceed a dozen photos, the rejections come. Not a big problem, because when you realize this, you work according to that policy.
And the other thing I dislike is the small amount of money on sales in general. But I guess this is solved with time, when you have more higher lever pictures and your portfolio is more popular.
I would also like to have no upload limit, because there are days taht you need to upload 70 photos and other days you need uploand only one.
Well, my general view of the site is very good, and from a few days in DT, this became one of my favorites. I am very pleased to have entered here.

Thak you Vishaka and Andrei. I was very fast during the first two months, but now I have not the same level of work. It is because of I come from others agencies and I have a portfolio of about 2000 images, but the big part that I thought to upload to DT is done. Now, I have to look for more images, and make a selection. Added to it, I have been that two months without shotting my camera and I would like to make new images, some exclusive for DT, because I have some ideas that can works well here.
Best regards.

Angel, very well written blog. I have been on DT for little under two months (first images submitted Feb. 18) will similar results. I have sold 63 images, have 430 accepted, another 72 in review.

I am amazed that you and I have such different portfolios but similar sales figures. I think by time I have three months, I will also see 100 sales.

Congrads on your hard work; getting 500 plus images on DT in three months is a lot of work.
Yes John, my friend, I see we are in the same line about sales and uploads. It is very interesting and good. I have been working hard the first two months, but now I can not maintain that level of work.
I've been watching your portfolio and I have no words to express the beauty of your photos. That's the kind of photography I like to do someday. All about nature and animals. Your sales have much merit, because they are not typical pictures of stock.
I love all your pictures, but above all those with animals...(More)

Well written.
Dreamstime is not perfect, ... but, hey, maybe soon they can be,

Any agency is 100% perfect, but DT is near to be. I give my little opinion with good and bad things I see here (I hope that the translator has not played a dirty trick to me). And of course, most of them are good. When I see that an agency is not good, I don´t write in the forums, only I delete my photos and go out.
Here I feel well, above all because you, friends, are wonderful.
Thank you all for your congratulations and best regards.

Congrats!! :) With high standards on technical quality and conceptual meaning the acceptance ratio figure of 62 sounds really good :)
Wish you many many more sales! Greetings,
