One more accepted... total = 3.
I swear, I get almost as excited about getting one accepted here as selling one at most places.  LOL

I think etien has a good point.  Look at the photog profiles and you'll see that most of them are listed with ages in their late teens and early 20's.  They're producing a different kind of stock imagery that strays from what we are used to considering as stock.  While it's great that there's an agency for this kind of photography, it's certainly not wihin my portfolio realm.

great attitude!

i actually like submitting to photocase. it frees up the inner photographer in you to shoot more (or less) than stock requires. funny thing is, they actually prefer the straight photos that other stock agencies have accepted.

i am a member since a couple of years but i am not very active. i think the majority of photocase users are just doing it for fun and not for a living. thats why most people have less then 100 photos online.

to me its fun to upload a couple of shots and have some of them getting through. even if my photos are not the usual photocase style, i made it to 91 photos online. but i really like the rpi of the site. all of my 25 top selling images have made me more then 2 up to 33 per image. on some months, i earn more there then with almost 300 photos online on pages like fotolia, StockXpert, 123, bigstock and co. probably nothing compared to people with thousands of photos online, but fine to me.

just for comparison:

i like your port on photocase, sint. have you considered joining getty artists? it's great to know that these more artsy photos have a good market (maybe like getty).

Sint... I see your in Potsdam. Nice area. Was stationed on Teufelsberg in Berlin during the fall of the Wall. Took a trip out in Potsdam one time just to wander around. I miss Germany.. or the way I remember it. I hear Berlin changed alot since the US Army pulled out.

After loads of rejections, I had two accepted.  It feels good getting lots of rejections, I like having a challenge.  Hopefully this will inspire me to move away from the standard stock look.  I used to be much more creative but now I am thinking about how well a photo will do on the stock sites before taking it.

Very nice and congratulations to getting some accepted. :)

Just had my first ten rejected but I'm determined to find something they might like. Last weekend I went out to shoot photos without stock in mind and tried to find artsy, interesting shots instead. I'll upload some of those. Keeps me from being bored at least. :-\ I was doing the same thing where I was only looking for photos I thought would sell well on the traditional sites.

I see everyone is eager to join Photocase.  With so many recent new sites failing, or at least not fulfilling its promises, what makes people so positive about them?

(I'm not criticizing anyone, I only want to know, because I'm tired of "new" sites).

They're not new. Made in Germany since 2001 :)

it's actually not a 'new' site. i was intriqued  by them and when i joined, i found i had an account there dating back to 2004! and i only joined is and ss this year.

i just find it fun and a relief from the usual stock co. requirements. the fact that people say the rpi is really high and that the selection is actually even worse than fotolia makes you hold your breath as to which photo they will take. it's a nice diversion.

Ok, but all of a sudden people are talking about it, so I am curious.

Because of the unique types of images they accept, I think it will help me and others to loosen up a bit and try something new. It's a good thing. ;D

It's different.

Well I uploaded 22 images several days ago.  So far 7 have been reviewed with 4 accepted and 3 rejected.  I guess I'll see how the rest fare in the review process.  That final process for publishing photos is quite involved and time consuming; definitely not set up for mass uploads

There is an easier way of "finalizing" photos by clicking "use old version". I do that. I have no idea if that affects my sales.

Well that certainly makes me feel inadequate.   ;D
I'm still trying but only four images accepted out of ???? a bunch.  LOL
Congrats on getting it going.

Lol turns out that those 4 were the only ones accepted from the 22, so I guess I don't have them figured out like I thought I did. Back to my portfolio with my tail between my legs...

i started out batting 1 in 6, now it's down to 1 in 20. arghhh! love to see your port.

well at 4 images so far, it's not much of a port to look at yet.  My fireworks shot seems to have alot of an "interestingness" factor though.

Four in my port too.  I've had two downloads .... but NO MONEY.  Not so sure that getting credits for uploading makes a lot of sense.  Turns the site into an "exchange" agency instead of a "sales" agency.  Photographers who need images usually can make their own.  What's the use for all those download credits???    :-\
