As I have now reached the milestone of 100 images online, I want to tell you my story with Dreamtimes.
For such disappointment I decided not to charge other images on this site.
After more than three years, during which I completely forgot about that single loaded image, I received an e-mail from Dreamstime asking me to fill in the form of income tax returns.
Intrigued by this strange request, I recovered my password and went back on the site of Dreamstime. With my surprise I found the photo I uploaded three years before ascended to the level 2 and my earning was about $4.
I thought that if I earned $4 with a single photo, then may be I could earn $40 with 10 photo, and $400 with 100 photos.
But, above all, I thought that if, compared to 15 photos that I uploaded, Dreamstime had selected the one that was then sold,
this meant that their selection process was certainly valid.
Now from about six months I regularly load the photos on this site, using some tools that help me to speed up the keywording process.
My acceptance rate typically exceeds 40%, and today I have reached the milestone of 100 photos online. And the last nine images upoaded have been all accepted!!
For the future I plan to continue with this speed that I think is adequate to achieve in the next few years a suitable number of images online.
I think also that you are a great community of photographers that encourage the members to improve their tecniques and to increase their passion for photography.
