    The area which I could really see noticeable noise would be the 2nd column of windows from the left? But then, thats my amateur yardstick.

    Do you guys who into stock photography do any post processing/cropping/sharpening etc to your images before you submit?

    Thanks.

    My microstock photos are not worth a look. They are boring, functional and uninspired photos just to make a dollar or two. I'm not proud of them.

    Sion, you suay lah. Usually give it about 2 months before you resubmit, but then again, since this guy is on a trial version.....guess he doesn't have the luxury of time and countless of other photos in between to throw them off guard.
    You have to be careful. Now that the cat is out and if someone reports you to Shutterstock Ben Heys won't be happy with you.

    I am not on a "Trial Version". I have 3,954 photos in Shutterstock now and won't stop till I reach 10,000 photos there.

    I play big and gamble 4D even bigger.

    so are mine and likewise i'm still learning. a dollar or two can amount to alot..your 3k over photos would have brought in quite an amount too

    I find stock photography very unique, sometimes even a pic of a single orange can sell

    most stock photography are used as a based for further editing/retouching.. usually the generic ones are in demand.. more than specific themed photos that are too unique that they usually don't work too well with other materials in the collaterials..
