As a DT contributor I have recently made four actions in a effort to improve rank and sales.
First one was remove my images from other image bank with low sales and without feedback. Number two to become exclusive contributor.
Third action was to create the collection with images of mexican handicrafts and clothing.
Next step was to increase images uploaded.
This year it starts wish all members of the community of DT that their efforts are reflected in positive.
I have found that collections help a lot.. but more so being IN other collections. there are some amazing images on this site, however with 16 MILLION images, its often like a needle in a haystack to find them. I have even tried to find my own work and had trouble! i AM TRYING TO START AND BE IN MORE COLLECTIONS, i HAVE NOTICED i HAVE MORE SALES for images that are posted in collections of others.

Not sure if something like working on photography and editing skills would be a more beneficial action than creating a single collection. Learn more, shoot more, upload more are my actions for the year :)
