Yesterday I've finally registered to Fotolia and when it's come to submitting there, I've discovered this: "Photo resolution must be greater than or equal to 2400 x 1600 (4 Million pixels)."
I've wrote to support to see if they accept such images or not but didn't hear from them yet.

If anyone submit photos from 4megapixel cameras with different resolution like 2272 x 1704?

I've never personally submitted one that size. However technically it should be OK as it is actually GREATER than their minimum requirement.

2400 x 1600 = 3.84 megapixels
2272 x 1704 = 3.87 megapixels

Thanks for response, Jimi! I'm aware that it's greater than what's required but it have different ratio and I thought that this could be the problem so didn't submit any images to them yet.

Sensovision, you need to buy a new camera.

wish I could  ::)

You're reading my mind, Leaf!  ;) The only reason I've decided to sell my photographs is because my camera getting old and some functions not working already, and I don't have any spare money to buy new one. So I've thought that maybe would be able to sell my works and accumulate money to buy myself long wished dSLR.

I switched a while ago from 4 to 5MP it makes a big difference overall for submissions . My 4MP shots did not do the cut for SS.
You can be a second hand on ebay like a Lumix FZ5 I still use it from time to time.
Also this website could be useful :

I decide not to bother myself with SS for now and feel the market better before doing any submissions to them.

Thanks for advice! But I use my camera very heavily so guess second hand wouldn't be good idea for me as it may quickly die :P As for eBay it have cheaper prices comparing to my country but when I order from overseas I'll have to pay high custom taxes no matter new equipment or not so after all it would be cheaper to buy camera here.

nice tool, thanks for sharing! I'll keep it bookmarked.

BTW I was choosing between Lumix FZ and mine camera but choose Dimage Z3 because it have quicker focus and my previous camera was Minolta... now I think that made wrong choice as it produce much more noise than Lumix.

I uploaded many 2272x1704 images when I had a Canon A520.  I still have images taken with it that I should edit and upload, but I've been focusing on the newer material.

Adelaide

Adelaide, do you remember if uploaded anything after changes in the rules to 2400 x 1600? (as I still didn't get response from support).

I think you'll find that the Fotolia site automatically scans your upload and rejects it straight away if it's too small or the wrong ratio.

Wise choice to avoid SS until you have a bigger camera. Even though they'll take 4MP images it would be a tough ride getting through the application process. Same with IS, DT and SX.

But Bigstock will take as low as 800X600 and 123RF will accept 2200x1700.

What about Bigstock and 123RF are they have comparable amount of traffic as DF and IStock for example? As I've got feeling that they are drive less sales than rest(not only from the poll on this site, but from feedback of other people and reviews I've read).

Denis,

I don't remember having uploaded anything that small lately.  I remember having submitted old stuff that wasn't in FT yet, but they were 3MPix - that's when I found out that FT had increased their min to 4MPix.  I think 2272x1704 will upload fine with them.  Try one file, the upload fails if below minimum size.

Regards,
Adelaide

Bigstock are a slightly better earner for me than SX. I would call them slow but steady. 123RF are slow and.. well slow.

My experiences don't agree with the poll. Fotolia is better than Dreamstime for me.

it seems that most people got different earning levels with different sites so guess the best way to determine which site would work for my kind of images is to try every stock which would accept photos with my camera resolution and see myself(the reason I didn't do this is lack of time).

Thanks everyone for help, I've just got official response from Fotolia, it's look like I wouldn't be able to work with them until I upgrade my current camera.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Fotolia minimum size requirements are 4MB / 2400x1600

So I'll better use my time to submit into other stock agencies.
