Question Anyone tried Britishimages.co.uk?

Hi all. I was having a look online to see if there were any photo libraries which I could upload some of my stuff to for a bit more "exposure". I eventually came across britishimages.co.uk which also gives the option of earning a bit of money from them. After I signed up, the instructions in the email they sent were that you could upload 3 images to begin with, and if they were approved you could then upload more. I did just that, following all the instructions to the letter, and in the blurb they do say "Please be patient during this process, depending on volume, it may take several days before your images are approved and are transferred to the live site", but it's been over a month now and I've heard nothing. They've not contacted me to tell me my photos weren't up to scratch, so I'm not sure what's going on.

I was therefore wondering - has anyone else tried this photo library? Am I wasting my time with it? Any info would be much appreciated

Re: Anyone tried Britishimages.co.uk?

hi, yes i was with them a while ago. got some images approved then uploaded some more but nothing much happened after that. no sales hardly any views. gave up after quite a long time and closed my account. a month does seem an awful long time to be waiting for approval, maybe they are on the way out, don't know. i use dreamstime and bigstockphoto, both microstock so low money per download but you get plenty of them, so don't know if that would be any use to you?

Thanks jacqui2 - I think I'll give up in that case. They have a blog on the site which hasn't been updated since September so maybe they are about to close down. Thanks for the info on the other stock photo sites - I'll definitely look into them.
