How To Avoid Digital Photo RejectionThe most important tool for this digital photo business is ofcourse the digital camera. The quality of the images is downto the mega pixel capacity of the camera and if you want toavoid your photos being rejected by the stock photographysites, you will need at least a 5 mega pixel digital camera, andmake sure it is set to the maximum resolution possible.Never submit more than 50 photos at a time and be carefulnot to upload the same photo twice, as this will also lead topossible photo rejection and even to account closure. To avoid this happening, dont change
  8. 8. the file name as your PC will point out any duplicates, and then when you are have a batchto upload change the file names accordingly. Windows has built in software for multiple filename changes, so it is just a question of a few clicks and wont be a time wasting exercise.Keywords is basically the second most important factor after qualtiy, so a bit of research willcertainly help increase your photo sales. Try using the Google Keyword Tool found here:- can also have a look at similar photos on Google Images, just to see what Keywords thefront page images are using, but dont over do it or you will be seen as a spammer. Usebetween 6 and 10 keywords to get optimum results and this way your photos wont berejected.So as I said quality is the main determining factor to avoid Photo rejection, so make sure thatthe images are not out of focus and that the light balance is even. Also your photos may betoo large in size, especially if you aiming at optimum quality, so my suggestion would be touse either Adobe Elements or Adobe Photoshop to reduce the sizing, as with this softwarethe quality will not be affected. If you need to make an image larger, dont go over 5% as thequality will be reduced significantly.Finally dont submit any image that has previously been rejected. Its better to take that shotagain, but this time paying attention to the above guidelines, as this way your photos willhardly ever be rejected and your photos will make you a lot more money.

  10. 10. Who Can Sell Photos Online?Now this is an interesting question I get from photographers who believe that this onlinedigital photography business is only validfor US citizens. Well I would like to notonly dismiss such claims but also add thatUS citizens are actually the power thatdrives this Internet business, due to thehuge amount of users and also to the highdemand for digital photos of objects,animals, scenes and a whole bunch of itemsthat just cant be found inside the USA.Subject matter is all so important and agood way to see just how many qualityphotos are already available on the Internet is to do a "Google Search" on the main keywordand then scan the images. You will find a whole range of images in various sizes, but youmay notice that the quality is often poor. These photos will not sell of course, but you willsoon see the difference in the quality of the images found as well as the various sizingmeasures used on the uploaded images.The actual jump from producing poor quality images to high selling images is not high at all,but simple mistakes need to be corrected in order to reach the final goal of being able to sellyour quality images on the stock photography sites. Displayed are some images that could be sold online as the subject matter is perfect yet the quality could be improved, but I am sure you will spot the potential markets for selling these photos to. Thanks must be given to Jim Glen, who has so kindly given me his permission to publish his work. The ideal photo is perfect when taken on location and not after having been edited with software like Photoshop or Elements.
  11. 11. Although these programs are perfect for resizing and removing unwanted objects etc, thequality will never be as good if the photo had been taken correctly in the first place.So once again anybody anywhere can sell photos online as long as they have a digitalcamera, a computer and an Internet connection. It is only a question of quality andinteresting subject matter, and after that you only have to upload the photos to the stockphotography sites and then just wait to watch the money rolling in.
