It's a high number for me with a small port. Over 30 subscription sales, this has never happened before and I'm a bit suspicious. Most of the images are for one industry but a few are just outdoor scenes. Even an image that has never sold before. I barely make payout in one month so it's very unusual for me. I wish I could think it's a sign of things to come but I don't think so  ::) Am I in danger of the sales being reversed?

Any idea which is the best site to upload live news for Australia? This is just for future reference.

Is anyone else having trouble with the page loading. The only thing that is showing for me is my earnings and the added script for downloads. I'm trying to upload some images but it won't show up on the page.

I decided to update my keywords and add some relevant ones I missed. I've been doing this just over a year so my earlier keywords can do with some updates. This image was one of the first I uploaded. The word "marijuana" had been added! I personally do not smoke it otherwise I would think I had a little too much that day ;) I looked at my Lightroom file, the image on my hard drive and my keyword file. When I started I recorded all the keywords per image in a file. Of course, the word was not on any of them. Has anyone else had random words added to images? I find it very bizarre!

Shutterstock.com / How do people get to add so many keywords?

I was searching images to see what terms were commonly used for fairground food pics as I am about to upload some. I found this:

There are so many words that have no connection such as schoolground but then many words are repeated several times. I didn't think it was possible to use more than 50 keywords? I don't want to, I think it's useless but this person must think it works.

I've been keeping a very crude record of my files and sales and figure there must be a better way than I'm doing it.

I would appreciate any suggestions or recommendations. Are there any programs specifically for stock?

Hi guys! I have entered a competition for our local university's 2017 calendar. To be considered for the cover my images need votes as only the top voted images will be judged. I have three entries and my name is Sheralee S. You get just one vote and this is where you will find them. I would really appreciate any help I can get  :)

Newbie Discussion / Are the Low Earners worth uploading to?
« on: April 21, 2016, 17:51 »
I only started uploading in February, I have images with Dreamstime, Deposit Photos, Bigstock - I have just a couple of sales with these but no sales as yet with Canstock (only joined recently). Depending on acceptances I have between 150 and 200 so I know it's not many but I do have sales with SS, iStock and Fotolia.

Anyone have insight for these sites. I've read that sales come over time with Dreamstime but I'm not so sure they ever will with the others?

Newbie Discussion / What's the deal with web usage?
« on: March 29, 2016, 18:05 »
Hi all, sorry if it's a dumb question. One of my photos have been used on a web news page, it was bought as a subscription. Is that okay for it to be used on a web news page that has been shared thousands of times?

I'm new to stock photography and I'm not sure on all the different rules and regulations.
