Dreamstime: Maximum upload limits updated

The gap between contributors with high approval ratio and low approval ratio is set high and several drawbacks were reported. Low AR contributors find it difficult to recover a mistake they did in the initial stages. High AR contributors usually don’t reach the upper limit, generating less self-selection as the contributor hurries to increase his database exposure.This dillutes RPD, lowers the royalty percentage of the contributor and attracts more subscription downloads (leading again to a lower RPD).

Previous structure:

  • - Users with an approval percentage higher than 80% can upload the maximum amount of images daily. This applies for the first 50 submissions if you’re a new photographer.
  • - Users with an approval percentage of between 50-80% can upload the fifth part of the maximum amount of images daily.
  • - Users with an approval percentage of between 30-50% can upload the tenth part of the maximum amount of images daily.
  • - Users with an approval percentage of between 0-30% can upload the 30th part of the maximum amount of images daily.

Updated structure:

  • - Users with an approval percentage higher than 80% can upload the maximum amount of images daily. This applies for the first 50 submissions if you’re a new photographer.
  • - Users with an approval percentage of between 50-80% can upload half (1/2) of the maximum amount of images daily.
  • - Users with an approval percentage of between 30-50% can upload the third part (1/3) of the maximum amount of images daily.
  • - Users with an approval percentage of between 10-30% can upload a quarter (1/4) of the maximum amount of images daily.
  • - Users with an approval percentage of between 0-10% can upload the sixth part (1/6) of the maximum amount of images daily.

The maximum daily limit will be decreased from 50 images per day to 20 images and a new tier will be added (below 10%). Subject to potential further adjustments, here is how the updated numbers will look by the end of the day.

Old limits:

  • 50 images/day +80%
  • 10 images/day 50-80%
  • 5 images/day 30-50%
  • 2 images/day 0-30%

New limits:

  • 20 images/day +80%
  • 10 images/day 50-80%
  • 6 images/day 30-50%
  • 5 images/day 10-30%
  • 3 images/day 1-10%
