Hi I have been only shooting for about two years and got started by shooting jewelry for our one small website and have since moved on to shooting people by the request of some crazy clients who like my work Im now looking to add micro stock to my revenue stream as well as learn more about photography and increase my skills. I have been accepted to photofolia but was rejected from IS and doubt I will be accepted for SS. (application pending)
I know Im not the best so I know how much I still need to learn. (quite a lot)
This place has had quite a bit of very useful info I hope to be able to learn more as well here.

I know the feeling. I don't have anything amazing but am starting to get a grip on my work flow and quality
that these sites look for. Just keep trying it took me three times to get into IS and SS be determined and don't
quit. I think that they automatically reject a lot of first time submitters in order to weed out the weak. I'm sure you will succeed if you want to and yes we will try and help you all we can. Wlecome, You can see my small SS gallery if you wish it is nothing amazing but in 5 weeks I have had 99 downloads. Good luck ;D

I'm also new to stock photography. I found it easier to get accepted bu shutterstock then Istock. I have 19 images in my shutterstock gallery and sold 19 in about a week and a half. I only have 4 in my istock gallery. They seem to reject everything i submit.

Anyways if you have problems just read the forums and do google searches. Although it is not the answer learning a few photoshop techniques defenatly wouldn't hurt. They help the newbie getting those images the way you would have wanted them to be in camera. Its no solution but it helps to get your pictures accepted while you learn to shoot better in camera.
