Is there anything special that could be shared that is helping your sales. I post on facebook also pinterest and am just getting views.
Would love to hear from others on any ideas that would help sales.
There are no 2 pictures just alike we all view things with our own perspective so, I don't think this would hurt anyone else's opportunities but would love to hear some advice. Gonna share some love posting my most recent photo at this time.
It really isn't about me making a sale. Just fishn for info from others just to put in my knowledge base. I would like hopefully, for other new members, as well as my self to get ideas from those who have been here for awhile. Thanks
HI, i was in your boots a few weeks ago,and then POW first sale. just keep shooting and it will happen. thing to remember at the moment is you only have 55 in your portfolio, so you are limited at who is going to look. also what i started doing was putting up blogs and leaving comments on others, it started getting me more attention.
Seawatch I in no way feel your reply is mean or rude. That is what I am looking for not sales but advice and encouragement(if I sale an image while on my journey even better). I love to learn new things but strive to learn it correctly. Why do it at all if I am doing incorrectly. So my reason for the post is to get people to interact with not just me but all those out there that are new at this and are just looking to those that have been here to share what has worked for them. I work so not really the make a lot of money thing as I do this as a hobby. Even those out of focus not just right photos give me pleasure to share. I do appreciate your advice and thank you!

Great Idea I did disable one of my photos and plan on editing it again. Thank you for your comment I am learning with each image. Today I did purchase a macro lens now the fun begins I found I move to much gonna have to use my Tripod for this. The struggle is real. Lisa
I'm with you there Patrick. I disabled an already accepted photo that just didn't look quite right. The original photo was then re-edited until it looked how I wanted it, submitted and accepted. I only did this once but it might be the way to swap out any images you're not completely happy with. ( I also used the comments for reviewer box to explain what I was doing.)
I agree with all the advice given..I'm still learning and hopefully improving at the editing side, it is a skill and very easy to make mistakes. I have uploaded and deleted images straightaway at times, if I get them onto Dreamstime and think they don't look right. Then take them back to the editor and try a different approach. I also have had images which look really good until I look at them enlarged...I hate that but I've learned to bite the bullet and discard them. In fact I wish I could drop a few of my early images because I don't see them as being good enough now. It's all a learning curve and it takes time.
