I just applied to depositphotos in late December, was accepted and starting to get some sub sales on my initial images. I thought it made sense to give them a try since you can upload your portfolio at once via FTP and it sounds like they take care of categories for you. All my images have the ITPC data in them so I'm figuring it should be easy and was about to do that when I read a thread by someone new to dreamstime, who was cautioned not to upload all at once as it could make their portfolio sink all at once.

I have a small micro portfolio so would probably only be uploading 200 photos at once (the number some of you may upload in a week, I know).

Would appreciate your advice. Obviously a large upload via FTP will save me a lot of time and get me a decent size port there fast, but it'll be useless if it all sinks. I appreciate any thoughts/advice. Thanks!  8)

with Deposit photos I would upload all at once- they have a very low rejection rate thus don't have to worry about an entire batch being wiped out from one editor having a bad hair day lol  8)

I think it is better to upload your images by categories. It will be very faster and easier then.
The DP categories system  is not very friendly

DP is a good site with few but enough regular sales.
