Hello to all,
What is your acceptance % on DT?

I have 41.1%. Ridiculous...
But with SS 95%, Alamy 100%, Adobe Stock 95 %

I am confused  :o

What? Mine is super high DT. Lowest in AS, Canva... Why is yours so low in DT? They almost accept everything. What are the rejection factors?

Crap like too many of the same object - I don't agree. Then I got something like 'we have enough of these photos' - yes, they have: under-exposed, over-exposed, wrong white ballance or weird composition.

Well, I am not frustrated, only seriously confused  8) So perhaps I should spend my time and energy only with TOP agencies.

Sometimes I feel mean when I think I'm too good for DT, look at this: https://www.dreamstime.com/editorial-photography-cat-playing-cute-ps-image92990877

Overall acceptance 97% since 2013

Acceptance over the last 12 months ~ 100%

Whatever you are doing you should stop doing it because you are doing it badly :D

Then I looked at that portfolio you linked and those are poorly done  :(

Edited to reflect the port link is not the OP's but some other sad sack who can't take photos  ;D

Dreamtimes are very strict about accepting similars I get a few rejections for this reason when I have even a couple quite similar....other sites let them through.

You are either having a laugh or deluded. Either way continue with your day job.

I have 5351 images on DT, and only had 11 rejections total.  All those rejections were being "to close to an already submitted image," and I think those were actually images that were accidentally submitted twice...

However, even with over 5000 images on DT, I have only had 5351 downloads for a total revenue of $318.26.

If you really have that high a reject rate, then you need to take a close look at what you are doing.  Regardless though, DT is not where your money is likely to come from...

5351 downloads may have earned you $3182.60 but $318.26 is not really possible.

I see a cap conspiracy coming on, the number 5351 is identical! (just kidding) Can I take a stab that he mean to put something with three digits not the same as his total images? If not, wow what a cosmic coincidence...  ;D

I wonder what people get for a RPD now on DT and how's that old, for every 1,000 images, people make $$$ - yes I know, neither is for everyone or of any true science value, but when 100 people start to have similar RPDs, we can see an average. Remember when people claimed that a image made on average $2 a year, then it was $1 a year. Now people with 5000 images make about 10 cents a year average, per image. Boy have the times changed.

Then I looked at your portfolio and you have 20 images?  ???

And those are poorly done  :(

Sammy the Cat, I don't think that's his port, I think he was pointing out the stuff that Dreamstime does accept (from others).

One error is that I said "5351 downloads."  Actually that is the number of "uploads" or images in my portfolio.

But yes, in some 7 or 8 years, that is all I have gotten from DT...

Yeah, a typo -- I said 5351 downloads. Should have been 5351 uploads. 

Not sure why the number of images there is so high, unless they have never rejected anything?  (I don't really keep count, so not sure).  On SS, my portfolio is 3973 images, including 409 uploaded in the past 90 days.

Note that on SS, I have 6424 downloads for $4396 revenue in the same period.

My figures are similar %age wise a little better relatively on Dreamstime although it is falling further behind.

@davidbautista "They hate you." yes, perhaps you are right! And I hate them! So I should leave them as it goes nowhere.

And no, I am not showing my portfolio nor username so I can say whatever I want. I remember Lobo from iStock in old times, he was really an a***ole. I got permanently admonishments, temporary blocking and then permanent ban from forum.   8)

Thanks, that makes more sense. So does the earnings from SS vs DT.

I left, I came back, I don't know what's going on, I have one rejection since back and my acceptance rate is something like 35%.  :o Maybe removed files count as reject, maybe my acceptance rate in 2010 was that bad? I just wanted to give them a fair chance in case I was dropping DT for false negative reasons. I'm only sending them new images when I'm in the mood, under 30 a month.

This is a test, only a test, had it been a real agency that I was uploading to, with any expectation of making payout before 2025, maybe I'd actually care?  ;D
