Has anyone successfully SOLD THE RIGHTS using SR-EL?

posted on 10th of march, 2008

150 and counting, I think I'm finally on a roll!

As a college student I find myself exploring my options. I have been traveling around quite a bit and taking photos everywhere I go. I have been into photography since grade school, now I am exploring microstock.

I opened my account in late 2006 and uploaded a couple images. I hadn't really touched it until now. I am finally taking this seriously and have begun uploading at a steady pace.

I have sold some but my question is as follows: HAS ANYBODY BEEN SUCCESSFUL SELLING THE RIGHTS TO AN IMAGE using the SR-EL option? How common is it?

Congrats Irisangel, My sales are limited as you can see but its obvious that the more you have the more you sell.

I noticed that those who specialize seem to do better than others. My portfolio is non focused on any specific topic, I have to many interests.

I want to get into illustrations, I have been producing many aimed at marketing over the last couple months and will upload them soon to see how they do. I noticed your portfolio is mostly illustrations and they are doing pretty well. Also they look good! Best, Sal

Hi, I have never sold the rights but today I was surprised to find that I had my first , Web Usage (W-EL), sale on DT. Nice to see that 25.00 figure in my sales column. Thanks to whoever downloaded my wedding invitation image. ID: 4437618 . I am very excited about this as I am also new here since mid January. I love this site and am really happy with sales, 196 so far!!! Thanks DT.
