I'm really chuffed with my Dell 27" too, even if I am just using it in factory preset mode.

I think there are some linguisitc issues here, isn't a doggy bag what you take home uneaten food from a restaurant in ?

or do you mean son#mething that goies in here


I'd hate to confuse the two

The two I had pending are accepted, 151 now online, hope I have snuck in.

Alex, thanks if you sorted this out.


Thanks for the reply, I did send a couple of PM's before new year, I have sent you another.


True microbius, and as a marginal I agree to a certain extent.

Having said that if there was a notice of this change and a reasonable amount of time to cross the threshold I would have no complaints.

rats. look kike i missed out, still one short :(


149 approved!

I have sent support an email about one rejected image but I am not hopeful, a shame as 123 is doing ok for me with my small port.

Most of my images that I have found being used with watermarks on are from 123

Illustration - General / Corel Draw?
« on: December 08, 2011, 18:16 »
I have an old copy of corel draw installed (ver 11) and have been playing with a few vecotr's. I enjoy learning new skills and would oike to upload for stock (a great way to get motivated and the harsh requirements make you learn).

I did something but when I converted to AI using a guide I found on the web it looked shocking compared to the original.

Does anyone else use coreldraw (succesfully) for their stock vectors?


142 in portfolio and far too little notice to get the extra 8 approved !

I am a minnow at this but I did have a couple of bonkers reviews (property release required for a 15th century coin).

To be fair I emailed them (only time I have ever complained I think) and it was sorted quickly.

Computer Hardware / Advice on monitors requested
« on: November 25, 2011, 06:03 »
Any advice welcome as I don' really understand monitors!

I currently use a bog standard 24" acer screen but my lad needs a new screen for gaming etc, mine is fine for this.

This gives mne the option to go for something aimed at photography.

I am looking at the Dell IPS screens, specifical;ly the U2711 27" IPS model that I have found for 400.

Does having a wide gamut screen make any difference and therefore worth the extra 's?

Thanks for any opinions.

Photo Critique / Re: New to this - need critique
« on: August 04, 2011, 01:29 »
Thanks for the advice! As I said I am totally new to this and still learning... I bought my digital slr only 2 weeks ago. I just like taking photos and I am trying to find a way to pay for more equipment so I will be happy with 100 quid per month :-)


I'm in  asimilar boat to you as a newbie.

I bought my first camera last October and stumbled upon microstock shortly afterwards. 100 quid a month is a challenging target if, like me, you a starting froma skill and knowledge base of zero.

On the positive side I am just about to pay for my first camera kit (450) and get around 50 a month now across all the sites I upload to.

Most of the posters on here are serious players and offer great advice, use it and you can make money. Just remember that at first it really is peanuts and only worth doing if you enjoy the process for its own sake.

p.s I found that my aceptance rate increased dramatically when I bought a decent prime lens with a reputation for being pin sharp and used that for most of my pics intended for stock rather than the kit lenses.

Photo Critique / Re: Finally accepted at IStock

congrats from someone not far further down the Istock/Shutterstock road.

FWIW I find shutterstock easier to get on with and far more lucrative (in my very small scale experience)

I seem unable to add pictures or text to any new design ? Am I going mad?
 The site loads ok, just can't seem to find out how to add the above.
