Hi everybody!

In their training maunal Istock says that they dont need anymore images of dogs/ cats, flowers, flags, sunsets & clouds and so on. Does that mean that they always reject every image that contains one of those things? Or how strict are they with this? Is it still worth a try?

PS: I really enjoy this forum! Im quite passive here, Im mostly reading and not writing that much, but I think its a very nice atmosphere here! Thanks for all your great advices and information, Ive already learned a lot thanks to you all!  :)

They will accept those things, but only if the shot is really special.

I lately uploaded some flower shots, you can check them out at my portfoio at IS. They are should be on the first and second page of my portfolio if sorted by age.

I took a photo of a flower and tried uploading it on all of the sites.  Surprisingly, it was accepted on all of the sites, but has only had a few sales.

Here is the image if you are interested:

I've had some of those type images accepted so I try anyway if I think they are exceptional.  Good luck!

Yeah, i think the flower images must be quite good to sell regulary, I just started to make a page on my website for microstock beginners to check out the possibilities how images will sell. My first and still only example is a flower.

Thats a really interesting example! Interesting to see that none of the agencies can keep up with Shutterstock! But I wonder if the download reasults per agency will be more even after a year or so!!?! And I also wonder if I would have as many downloads as you with the exact same picture in my portfolio?!? I think you attract a lot of your "customers" with your COOL penguin pictures!  ;) By the way, please tell us more about your trip to Antarctica!! Seems quite unusual...! How do you organize such a trip?
Ill definitely check out those download results of the flower picture later on to see how its developing!

Schne Gre nach Deutschland!  :)

Same here, have had some of mine accepted...  as said, they must be exceptional images, but they take them.  8)-tom

modified next day: that didn't sound right. sorry.   I suppose my particular images were good enough to squeek by.   or, the trainee reviewer was on that day. ... yeah, that's it..   trainee reviewer...   LOL
