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´t ever think so!! Each agency has own rules and preferences.
I´ve started uploading the best images and bit by bit the not so successful pics. The End of the Game. Refusals (that also means accepted ratio going down). First i was shocked, but i looked at the comments and i must say, i agree with the reviewers.
Reviewers are humans and having a really hard job. I´ve heard they reviewing images around 10 hours a day. They see some amazing images and a lot of scrap.
So here are two don´ts:
Do not upload all your images, only the best ones.
Requirements: Sharp, no noise, correct lightning and good composition.
If you get a refusal, be self-critical. If you think the image is worth trying again, correct the problem and resubmit it. Leave a nice comment to the reviewer. Don´t resubmit all your refusals!
If you have unfinished files, that maybe have the same critique, delete them.
It is a learning process. If you noting the comments, you can be better. Reviewers wants to help you!
And always be friendly.
Thanks for reading this article and thanks on patiently reviewers
Have a nice day, lot of accepted ULs and DLs and fun!
