My First Uploads

posted on 31st of october, 2010


I'm new to this site, I'm new to stockphoto's all together. As most of you guys, I'm amazed at the level of quality I see in the pictures on dreamstime.

As most of you, I felt that some of the rejected pictures were actually nice. But reading the reasons why they got rejected, well ... it makes sense. When you look at the pictures some of you guys are posting up here .... rejection gets easier :-) On top of that you can use this advice in order to improve.

Now my first uploads are done, i'm just wondering how you get exposure and how long it takes before you get your first views. As it's always nice to know that you are not the only one looking at your pictures.

If any of you guys has any advice, it's always more than welcome.

this is my first picture online, it might not be the best, but it's a milestone for me :

Thx for the information, I have my first few views, and like everyone, awaiting my first sale. it's exciting to think someone might want to buy a picture I made.

How long before you guys made your first sale ?

@ all : Thanks for the welcome,

@ Roberto1977n Thanks for the useful advice. Keywording isn't easy, but a bit of research should help a lot.

Welcome on DT! My advice is to spend more time in keywording (title, description, keywords). Initially it is a bit boring, but in the long run it will be useful (buyers find your images through keywords). Wish you luck! Bye, Rob.
