Stock Photograpy VII

Just another tip for you.

I was checking my stats at the individual sites to see if any more sales were generated and noticed I still had some pending files at some of the stock sites.

Even though iSyndica submits to the sites, not all the sites accept the photos straight away. Some of them require you to add categories, others need you to just add the keywords you’ve submitted into the format they need and then submit for approval.

One site seems to have misplaced over 70 or more of my images that have been submitted and I’ve sent a support request to find out where they are. I’ve paid for credits at iSyndica to submit to 8 different sites now and most of them are working fine but one doesn’t appear to be.

So, it makes sense to log in to each account periodically and check the status of submitted images and see if any are pending waiting for you to do something else before they’re accepted.

And not all of the sites notify you if photos have been rejected or submitted, or even sold.  I can say I think that canstockphotos.com and bigstockphotos.com have the best submission processes and one even has a keyword helper if you haven’t already done that part at the iSyndica end.  On that point, may I remind you it’s far quicker and better for you to do all the keywording and descriptions at iSyndica so you don’t have to do each individual photo at each photostock site – it really slows the process down otherwise.

Some of the sites aren’t very intuitive and you have to hunt around for your pending files.
