I'm finding DT really tough on acceptance- any advice?

Never had a problem with them personally. Submit good stuff and they will accept it! I find them less fussy than IS and SS.

DT seem to be aspiring to iStocks quality not quantity.

Personally my acceptance rate is lower there than at iStock, no problems at SS for me.

no real suggestions other smaller batches of different images

Check what they have got already as I have seen the rejection notice "we already have quite a lot of this subject"

I dont know if this true in general, but DT seems to work in a rather strange way.  I would get ten rejections in a raw, followed by fifteen acceptances.  You should have an acceptance rate for your portofolio, they seem to adhere to that ratio.  Maybe, its because I submit big batches at once.

I don't have big problems with acceptance at DT.  Rejections are reasonably low and in most cases a little tweak in the photo is enough for them.  Sometimes I get those "we have too many of this subject", which in some cases I don't quite agree.

I have a small (42) port at DT.  What I found after my few short months in stock is that they have had a heavy tendency to reject most of my object (non-people) shots as "this is well-covered in our database, etc." I've had very few technical quality rejections.  These are images that have almost all been accepted at the other 6 sites I submit to.  What's amazing is that DT have accepted all of my people shots.  Those are mostly isolated on a white background, and more or less just portrait-style.  Out of my 42 files, 29 of them are portraits.  I'm not sure exactly what that says except that they like my people pictures better than my non-people pictures.  I have a wide variety of object pictures, so it's not as if they don't like a particular subject or other.   So to sum up, I've had many "well-covered in our database" rejections for object pictures but none at all for people pictures.

I find the same thing with DT almost impossible for me to get non people shots approved but in the last few months almost 100% approval on people shots.   The reason for rejection is never technical but always not what they want but they seem to accept similar shots from others. It seems as if they won't encourage you to do non people shots if they know you do a lot of people shots.

Thanks for all feedback and advice

Agree with Madelaide. My batches tend to be a variety. If I have similar shots I mix them up when uploading. With DT I either get almost all accepted, or mostly rejected. Frequently all rejections will have the same reason.
