Selling Stock Vectors Tip #18

It is just about a time for me to continue the series of tips of how to sell your stock images. Please press “Continue reading” to find out more:

This week’s tip is Upload silhouettes of correspondent set of objects.

I always try to upload both series of images, which more likely have different audiences, yet both sell quite well.

Just keep in mind that if the silhouettes are too simple they will be rejected by inspectors. So you either have to create a very large set of silhouettes, or make them very unique and detailed as well.

Hope this was useful:) You re welcome to ask questions and comment in the comment section below.
