Goodmorning! A small reflection: am in Sweden and shooting a lot of summer images. Summer is however soon over and stock sites are asking for autumn, halloween, even christmas content. SHould i upload these images now, or would it be better to save them to spring? Does it matter when i upload seasonal content?

Thanks for advice!

I go by the theory that buyers can't buy your photos if you haven't uploaded them.  So might as well upload as soon as you can or you might be losing out.  My summer photos get downloads throughout the year.

Summer - Winter
When it is summer from one part of the World it is winter in the other part, and vice versa.

Then consider too that people working with tourism prepare their communications for summer during winter, so they will buy your summer photos during winter, not during summer

btw I agree with sharpshot, if you have not your images online you can be sure that nobody will by them

Different uses have different lead times - magazines, products, ads, blogs.  You can't time it so just upload it.  Besides different agencies take longer to index your images.  On some sites you they don't seem to get seen for months, on others it could be immediate.

i've been selling xmas images all year, although it did occur to me that my xmas ball on the beach is a good summer image if you 'shop out the ball (I should do that myself actually and upload it as a sep file)
