    I submit to a total of 5 stock sites. Different stock sites have different customers, with vastly different interests. what does not sell at one site sometimes does pretty well on the other.

    i submit to two only. what was mention about different sales is different. however as much as i want to cater to the market needs i cant due to limitations like lack of studio equipment blah blah, can rent yes but i've got no income so i got to make use of whatever abstracts or street shots that i can pluck whenever i go shooting and make full use of them as stock photos.

    in fact my last trip to sentosa for a street shoot including sunrise my day's shot all of them was submitted to Dreamstime and all were approved. now just hoping they can sell, of which 1 or 2 has made their first sales.

    Easy or hard depending on which inspector you have.

    An image can be accepted by one but rejected by the other one.

    Yes. Microstock causes a lot of grief among the traditional stock photographers.

    A high resolution image used to fetch $300. Now you can get it at a microstock site for $1.
