    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Anyone have experiences to share about these as far as making a bit of money?

    I have uploaded about 50 pictures to Dreamstime and after 50 rejections, finally they accepted 11 of my pics! haha

    I'm pretty excited just because of all the rejection emails.

    iStockPhoto has accepted 2 of my images, oddly enough 2 of the ones Dreamstime rejected....

    Any tips?

    I've noticed they want images SOOC, with little to no editing.

    Congrats!

    About 85% of the stock images that sell, have people in them.

    Many times microstock houses don't reject photos for technical flaws, but because they already have more than they need of an image type.

    That could well be why one microstock house accepts something another rejected.

    I think you see a lot more sales on iStock, enough to make up for their pitiful commission rate - but not enough to make it feel better :)
    I would look closely at the rejections and make suer you are learning from them. You should shoot for 100% acceptance.
