Editor's Choice - Some Guidelines

posted on 11th of january, 2010

So, you navigated to the homepage and saw that special tab with hand-picked impressive images and naturally began dreaming of seeing your own among them. You kept trying for a (long) while, but it just isn't happening. What is the deal with those editors, you ask yourself, my images are cool enough! Or perhaps at this moment you don't even dare dream of seeing your image among the editor's special selection.

Before I go on I'd like to say, what I hope will be a word of encouragement to many of you - we (the editors) can't wait to be moved by your images and approve them as editor's choice.

Now, let's step back and look at some guidelines which will help you produce the outstanding images we are looking for.

Just noticed . . . my first editor's choice. Two sales already. When I first submitted it a few years ago, it was rejected for "not what we are looking for". Tried it again recently and it hit the sweet spot with someone I guess. It all depends on the editor you get, lol.

@Rubypjohnson - I'm not quite sure I understand your question and it's a bit off topic here. However, to download an image you need to go to the image's page (ie. click on the thumbnail from the search result) and then use the buttons provided on the "Royalty Free" tab to select your desired size and download the image.
If your question is how to insert the image into a Wordpress blog post/page - just do a search on Google, for example, and you'll find a lot of detailed information about it.

How can you download images "small" enough for a blog. I have been unable to do this with wordpress.

Alright, that's a topic you may be getting sick of. It's certainly one of the least fun aspects of selling microstock photos as well (only topped by the waiting for sales), but in spite of all this (or perhaps because of all this) - it desires continuous attention and revision. So, here it comes - one more tip to help you with your keywords.

A while back Dreamstime released a feature which allows you to download a spreadsheet file of all your sales up to the end of the month before the current one (ie. it's not real-time and is generated at the end of each month). You can find the Excel Archive link on the Earning Page or on the Statistics Page. I know many of you are using it, but...
