Image follow up!

posted on 9th of june, 2010

Hi everyone!

I'm always happy navigating DT site and I think it's the most user friendly Microstock agency ever!
I'm saying this because now I'm appreciating it even more...!

There are some sections that I'm always curious to check & one these areas is the Undiscovered Images...!!!!

For who doesn't know where is this area... From the Home Page you click on the Popular tab & you're there!

Well I'm not doing a site map here, but what I want to explain to buyers & contributors that are not familiar to these sections Which images go there?!

All of us know the Editor's Choice section aka Fresh Recommended Photos for who's not logged in!

Editor's choice are usually the best stock photos that DT recommend & would love to show first for their customer's! But when these photos are not selling enough (for some reason), they have a follow up until they get to higher level...
The undiscovered Photos are the Editor's choice that didn't make more than 5 sales! So these images stay there till they get the 6th download!

So it's another kind of support & exposure for these photos to sell! One of the things that the great structure of DT has!

I would love one day to have an Editor's Choice & see it growing from the undiscovered photos to higher levels :)

It's nice to see that our good work is never left alone! Always a great support & follow up...

Put an Editor's Choice in your next milestone list! It's worth it for sure! ;)

Thanks DT & thanks for reading... Cheers ;)

Very interesting section. It's a good idea...and maybe I could find some better words but....I'm so tired today! I hate summer: too much hot for sleeping good!!!! Fortunately from yesterday it started raining! :-)

Hi Rosanne, yes they are all EC! I made my search on different images from different pages & I knew by the EC from each portfolio... By the way I'm wasn't talking about the rotating images from the banner, just the Undiscovered Images :)
Posted by Rosedarc on June 11, 2010
It's a good observation, Maen, the images on the banner are EC, I had never figured it out; but I think that when you click on More Images from that section Undiscovered Images, then the images are not all EC anymore. Not sure how these are selected, maybe they just rotate?

I didn't know that either. But I have to admit that I had a wish if my photos are not good enough for EC, they could put it on the undiscovered photos section :))))))) Seems I was completely wrong :))

Thanks Clayton & Aginger :)
@Debbie yes we all can have, if we do our best in creative shot or illustration!
I bet most of the chosen ones were never expected by their photographers... Good luck my friend ;)

Thanks Maen, very informative! It's good to hear editor's choices don't die or fade away.
Posted by Mani33 on June 10, 2010
Thanks my friends for the nice comments! :)
I had the curiosity to know about it, so I tried the couple of orders the section has & when clicking on any image & then the photographer name, that image shows on the photographer's editor's choice category!
That's it! ;)
