Questions for administrators of Dreamstime: a suggestion.


posted on 3rd of october, 2009

It would be good in my view, especially for those relatively new to Dreamstime if there was a box on the management site where we could ask questions and get quick replies. I did a property release for instance on my own workshop but keep being asked for one as if the adjudicator / administrators cannot see it. I still don't understand all the terminology , for instance, what happens if a buyer purchases an image outright. In that case what proportion of the purchase price do we receive ?
Who owns Dreamstime is another question that occurs to me.

Does anybody else agree with me about this suggestion for a question box ? Are management reading these postings and what do they think about it ?
I love trying to meet the challenge of concept photography though don't know anything about graphic type...

Hi David. As community fellows mentioned, such suggestions would go better in the Suggestions and policies thread. Besides, the questions are already answered or can be answered by writing a message to support.
We do read suggestions and we try to answer them. We take into consideration all possibilities and see if the suggestion is possible or doable.

Thanks, but I've been around here since 2005 - too lazy to upload more and lucky with some images that seem to be popular. Many advise uploading many images, I think less is more if they are the right images. You'll get the hang of this if you are persistent and clever and come up with something new (easier said than done).

Red you are extraordinary in having fewer uploads [ less than me as far as I can see ] but far more sales. Your advice is greatly appreciated. David.

Thanks to administrators for feedback which has allowed me to learn what is required in micro stock. Thanks also to other contributors for images which have suggested new approaches. I think there is emphasis on conceptual images though it seems that any good image can succeed.
My initial ideas of submitting mainly scenic images of resorts has changed to illustrating ideas or quotes from literature.

I can confirm for newcomers that rejections are an integral part of the learning process though, God willing, I still have much to learn. Receiving rejections is depressing but my advice is to leave it a day or two then reread and act on the advice [ best by retaking the shot and submitting afresh ].
I include one of my images initially rejected but redone in different light conditions. ...
