it's very normal rejection 29 out of 30 or even more....
DANG!!!  That could really damage my tender psyche.   :P

Their is enough earnings once you got an image accepted.
With only a few on line and in a short time I earned almost 100 euros.
The lowest payout for an image correct me if I'm wrong 1,20 euros
The highest 42 euros
I was also very sceptical when I started in begin of Februari but now I love the site and how they sell.

As I wrote earlier in this thread, Photocase has one of the highest RPIs (for accepted images, that is).

I have made more money with Photocase than for example Featurepics, Canstockphoto, VeerMP, Scanstockphoto...
and my Photocase portfolio size is under 5% of those sites...

Alright fair enough then if what is accepted actually sells.

Can anybody give an example of what actually got accepted there? It's very hard to believe that anybody would want to buy there. For instance, this is the first image that turns up entering "business man" in the search box. I'm still flabbergasted, more as a buyer than as a contributor.

LOL don't you understand....
THAT MAN KNOWS HIS BUSINESS SO IT'S A BUSINESS MAN      LMAO
sometimes I wonder myself what's is or what's out I only know once in a while they accept images of mine and will sell at least once.

There's a "kaycee" photographer listed on photocase but has no portfolio.  I assume you go by a different name there?  I was just curious to see your port so I got an idea of what actually sold there.

I like the website and the photos, very artistic.  :) Don't know how well I would do on a German site but do have some bizarre nature photos I could try to upload. Who knows.

They're killing me ... but... I think I'm getting close.   ??? :P

Epantha, I think you are onto something.  I'm making another tour thru my port, looking for something in which a German publisher/blogger might be interested. 
So far, though, I'm embarrassed and my ego is in a shambles.   :-[ ;D

Well, I tried to sign up last weekend but never got my activation code :-\ Sent a note to support.
Haven't had the privilege of being rejected yet.  :) Hopefully soon!

I actually signed up last Thursday and was going to submit some stuff there when I discovered ( should have found this out earlier but glad I didn't find out too late) that contributors get free credits for every image that gets accepted; credits that can be used to download other images for free.  I dont like the idea of others downloading my images for free and there's no way to opt out of this, so I decided agianst uploading anything there.
 I also got really sick of the photo of that girl picking her nose in the image rotation...yuck!

I finally took a look over there. It's Different I must say. Kinda like if Flickr all of a sudden allowed you to sell your images. Flickr does have some great images on it along with the little "what is that" snaps. I am not saying it's a bad thing though. It's just a different style. If it sells then keep at it.

I think I might have a go at it and see.

Edit: Signed up and got 10 for review. Got to wait and see ... along with Warren...lol.

No activation code. No reply to my email to support. Seems rather unprofessional. Guess I'll let this one go.

I really don't get it.  To me their collection makes Flickr look good.  I see very few images that rise above the level of junk and badly focused junk at that.

The other thing I found a little odd at Photocase was while scrolling through the list of contributors I found it pretty rare to find photogs with ports over 50 images.  Most have ports of under 20 images.  I found one guy with 400 and another with 200, but they were clear exceptions.
Must be really difficult getting images accepted there.

That is really unusual, I think, Epantha.  Mine came in minutes.  I think it is automated.
Did you check your junkmail???

I've been submitting 2 or 3 at the time and now have two full pages of rejections.  I'm running out of ideas.   :-\

I tried about 5 times to get an activation code. Their email is not in the junk or deleted files, never showed up, like it was blocked or something. I give up or could try a different email address.

They are different, but different is not bad. They are a small earner for me so far, but the images that they are accepting don't get just downloads but also sales. So as long as I have sales with them, I will continue uploading to them.

I kind of like the free spirited character of that site but I just don't understand HOW it works.  If you do a search for "Architecture" you get everthing without rhyme or reason . . . .  so to speak.  I did sign up, but . . .  I guess I will wait to see what they accept and what the consequences are.

Isn't that repulsive.  Maybe not understanding their reasoning for headlining that pictures is why I have only two images online there. 
I just can not figure what to upload????? :-\

After briefly going through some of their images, it is my impression that they are interested in "artsy and young" imagery.  The stuff is not unlike some of the graphics you might see on MTV and VIVA, or in Art Galleries (not necessarily Photography Galleries) . . . . .  the low quality spontaneous imagery (from mobile phones) that is  part of the youth culture is now what some advertisers are looking for to target that age group.

I once asked a video artist friend of mine why she created her pieces using the camera on her mobile phone and not buy some good gear.   She told in no uncertain terms that THAT was the LOOK that was important.

So maybe its time to dump the Nikon and take some shots with my mobile phone . . .
