My mistake it must be the size of my pics I was uploading 5 MP and it is 6MP minimum that's why it probably did not work

I've run into the 6MP barrier as well a couple of times. No cropping allowed. I need a new camera   ::)


Why not cropping? Nobody will see it if you do it right. I do interpolation with Photoshop +30-40% and there are never artefacts or other visible photo-errors...

I agree, but I have too many versions of each photo already. It's easier to upload what is already large enough.

Ok, but you can do such things with a batch automatically....

Why not using a batch? Thats very easy

I don't get BigStock. They should be doing so much better. They are marketing, running nice ads in design magazines alongside StockXpert and istock, and yet sales there are still pretty dismal.

Sales with bigstock seem to vary amongst us a lot.  They are much better than 123rf for me but some people don't do well there.  Last month was a big BME and I made more there than with DT but BigStock accept 97% of my uploads while DT is fussy.

BigStock produces for me, slow and steady.  Here are 2 stats to scratch your head over Sharpshot. BigStock has outsold DT for me over 7 months, and my DT acceptance rate over the last 3 months is higher than it is at BigStock.   ???

Updated my routines and uploading batch. Works great. A bit slow though.

Don't count Geckostock out.  While they were slow at the beginning, sales are now starting to move.  I just sold 5 there myself.

Snapvillage has an obvious potential. I just had my first 10 dollar sale there, and they're still in beta.

Featurpics, but only if photographers helps by promoting their portfolio there. For me, that's an obvious thing to do since they generate the best profit per sale.

Bigstock has been developing nicely, and with their new price structure, they have the potential to become a proper earner.

And as for Lucky Oliver: to me, the only thing they have proved so far, is that they are good at designing websites. Unfortunately, their abilities to sell my images are close to zero. It's like driving a Ferrari with no engine: completely useless.
