Hi Stock Pro's,

I've been told to leave a little extra space  (not too much) for buyers to write in text on the object. Yet, some of the stock companies tell me not to leave any extra space and reject my photos. Seems like each stock company has it is own requirements thus I have to just keep in mind who wants what on this area. Guess no across the board standard on this one...

Buyers can add white space around isolated objects.  I assume that is what you are asking about.  Just keep it close.

That's exactly what I thought. DT has been the one company that seems to want the extra space for some reason?  Thanks.

Leaving some copy space can make an image more sellable but it is a case by case situation. A ton of blank space will get you rejected though

The problem is:
most buyers can add the copyspace themselves on isolated obects, others cant because they are no designers and such, they just want to put some text over the image. Some agencies might see that potential, others dont. I guess they know their clients better than we do.
On the other hand: the buyers that can put the copyspace there themselves might be angry if they buy too much white space around an object. So I suggest you produce a very tight image you upload to most agencies and add a little extra white space for uploading to dreamstime in PS.

I leave white space according to what looks aesthetically pleasing to me. Not too little, not too much.
