  • 6 months, tips for newbies

    by Bradcalkins | 28th of October, 2008

    Well, I've passed the 6 month mark on DT and have to say that I am very pleased with how things have gone. I started out my first month with a single sale which encouraged me to keep uploading. Other sales have followed and ultimately led me to terminate other sites I was... More

  • More money...less work

    by Photojay | 26th of October, 2008

    Unless RF stock is the only gig (or the main gig) you've got going, I would argue that being exclusive is definetly worth your while. I have already gone over my reasons for my Exclusive Decision in another blog post, so I am not going to repeat those points. One thing... More

  • Reaching a milestone

    by Southernstar71 | 17th of October, 2008

    I finally got there. 50 uploads. It took quite a while (almost a year in fact), and at a certain point I'd given up hope altogether, but I got there. The most important thing, though, is not reaching the milestone, it's the path you travel on. For me, it meant learning... More
  • Pizza again!

    by Annieyek | 15th of October, 2008

    Luckily I have this pizza, otherwise I have no sales at all.. 16 uploads, 9 downloads from the same image "Pizza". Why my other images are not sellable? Welcome your comments or suggestion. Thanks! See Article

    by Creepers888 | 8th of October, 2008

    Hi All! I'm a beginner to this site and i'm proud to present my first few, carefully selected, uploads. I've been going through my collection, not a very big collection, and selecting photos to put up on the site. I narrowed it down to 10, but only 5 got approved..... More
  • 150 Images- a personal milestone.

    by Rouxmire | 24th of September, 2008

    I had planned to post when I hit 100 images, but I didn't, so I thought I'd post a blog now denoting that I have 150 images online. I got started in microstock a little over 7 months ago, and have delved into numerous areas of graphics (vector, 3D, fractals) and am enjoying... More
  • Have you ever thought on Reviewers?

    by Creepers888 | 23rd of September, 2008

    First of all, this isn´t any critique on refusals! Quite the opposite! So let me introduce you. I´m a little bit successful on other microstock-agencies (over 1.100 UL and nearly 1.800 DLs). So i thought, uploading the whole portfolio here on DT is a good idea. Don... More
