"Unofficial" Featured Collection #1 - Photographers with Cameras


posted on 6th of january, 2013

Welcome to the first installment of Unofficial Featured Collections of Dreamstime. I plan on periodically selecting and writing about Dreamstime collections that I feel are of high quality and noteworthy. Some of the criteria I plan on using are: theme cohesiveness, image quality, diversity of contributors, & collection maintenance. If you want to suggest a collection to feature, please leave suggestions at the designated thread, and include a few sentences telling why you think the collection is especially good. Note that the selection process is completely unofficial and does not represent any endorsement by Dreamstime.


To kick off our first Unofficial Featured Collection, I have selected a collection that may represent many of us. In it you...

Hey, thanks for using my Photographers with Cameras collection as your first Featured Collection! I think your plan to regularly feature a different collection is a great idea & is something DT should keep an eye on for future development into a valued resource for buyers.

Current Google Controversy


posted on 18th of january, 2013



Many of you may be aware of the recent controversy that has come up regarding images provided via Google Drive. If you have not yet heard about this, please do some reading as the outcome may have wide reaching effects throughout the microstock community. In very quick summary, the situation involves numerous images that were licensed to Google by a stock agency. The images are now available to all Google Drive users for free with unlimited usage (commercial and non-commercial) on items created on Google Drive. Some of the images normally sell for several hundred dollars per download; contributors received a one time payment of either $6 or $12 per image in this deal. Many contributors fear that their images have been devalued, and that they will have trouble selling these...

Unofficial Featured Collection #2 - Orange and Green


posted on 31st of january, 2013

This is the second installment of "Unofficial Featured Collections of Dreamstime". I am periodically selecting and writing about Dreamstime collections that I personally feel are of high quality and noteworthy. Some of the criteria I use are: theme cohesiveness, image quality, diversity of contributors, & collection maintenance. If you want to suggest a collection to feature, please leave suggestions at the designated thread, and include a few sentences telling why you think the collection is especially good. Note that the selection process is completely unofficial and does not represent any endorsement by Dreamstime.


The new Unofficial Featured Collection is one of the largest, and yet one of the best maintained and curated collections I have seen...

Rozenn, thanks for your comment. I agree that this is a very eye catching collection. It has probably grown a lot since you first found it. If you have found other collections that you think are especially good, please suggest them for a future "Unofficial Featured Collection". (Please make suggestions in the designated thread so that the focus here stays on the Orange and Green collection.)

This was actually the first collection to catch my eye when I started at Dreamstime, I just found it amazing and so fresh. It's nice to see how it has evolved, changing but remaining true to the scope of the collection.
