Read those rejection notices

posted on 6th of september, 2010

For those of you that are new to DT, make sure that you read the rejection notices. My last three rejections came with notices that said I could fix the image and resubmit. I read the notice, fixed the images, just a little bit of contrast and brightness adjustment, and now 2 of the 3 are part of my portfolio and 1 is in the queue awaiting review.

What could have been 2 more rejections turned out to be 2 more uploads and I saved my approval ratio from going down.

I agree, rejections help a lot to improve.

You're right.... I always fix the images that will be accepted, but not all of the images can be fix, as not all of them have flaws, or are interesting to DT.

You are right about fixing the rejections, but the AR counts the refusal even if it's accepted after! Cheers!
