Just thought I'd say hello to you. I started selling microstock on the Fotolia UK site around a year ago, just for fun, and have now decided to expand my portfolio. I have found that Fotolia is providing a lot more sales but also many more rejections for me of late and so have had a read through this forum to find a few more microstock sites. I'd like to say thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge and experiences; it has been invaluable to me as I have much to learn. Can anyone recommend a good UK-focussed ms site? Best wishes and increased sales to you all. Michelle.

Welcome Michelle,

I made the same switch a year ago,  I was exclusive with Fotolia UK . Do not limit you to UK sites. Please have a look in my blog

good luck !

Thank you. I've bookmarked your blog and I understand what you mean about not limiting myself to The UK. With Fotolia I have had a few UK sales and was surprised, and pleased, to see my images on the front cover of a UK gardening magazine so I suppose I am hoping for more of the same. It's just so great when you see your images in print, especially when you least expect them! Like I say, I have much to learn from the experiences of other photogs.
