I've been uploading more images but the wait is killing me! I'm waiting on about 40 images and I'm hoping that at least 5 get accepted. I no 5 out of 40 doesn't seem like a lot but I want to set a reasonable goal. Anything extra will be a bonus. I currently have one download which pumped me up considering I only have 2 uploads. I hoping for a little more success now that I have started the Dreamstime Dream again. Wish me luck and best of luck to all who read this and are on Dreamstime.

I guess you are in the learning process, so don't upload too many images at the same time, since they may have the same trouble to be accepted. Good luck.

Excellent two photos that you have already been accepted! You will see that with so much patience you have no rejection, and I wish you very good luck and good sales!

I edit for the just the best few from a shoot. It certainly is hard to wait for acceptance of that "sure fire winner" you just took. Usually I'm excited about the next "sure fire winner" when the previous one gets accepted.

Good luck to you Kristen, it is definitely a learning curve.

I was in your position 2 1/2 years ago.......... nobody properly explained about avoiding trademarks, company names or using editorials and the resulting refusals demoralised me and lowered my acceptance ration. It maybe a friendly agency but its still hard work to make significant money unless you are a professional or very poor !!!!!! David

PS Some people live on a dollar a day....... so income is relative. I've made $2700 but it barely pays for the camera and lens. Some lenses cost $10,000 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my suggest would be not to upload all images at the same time. At least the same object or theme pictures. If your pictures will be refused, you get low your acceptance ratio and you'll have limits for uploading more.

Welcome to DT and good luck!
