  • Isolated in Stock Language

    by Dudau | 27th of July, 2011

    I'm not a big fan of photographing isolated objects, but from my experience as a buyer for three years, I feel pretty qualified for writing on this subject. So here it is: "Isolated" in Microstock Language means plain, shadowless, easy to remove background. So, when you'... More
  • days of misunderstanding

    by Eternalfour | 26th of July, 2011

  • Kind words make it all worth while.

    by Davidwatmough | 7th of July, 2011

    Laura Vosika the author of a new book, Minstrel Boy, chose my image of light coming through the slit, cross window, at Skipton Castle in Yorkshire for the back cover of the book. Taking trouble to thank me was a kind generous gesture and I hope her book is a best seller.... More
  • Recycling your images

    by Tamarabauer | 23rd of June, 2011

    Do you ever stare at your image files on the computer screen and think that while they're "okay", perhaps they could be better? Or do you ever suffer from the photographer's version of Writer's Block and can't find anything to shoot? I sometimes study my images and try... More

    by Mariaam | 9th of June, 2011

    Mandalas are beautiful and they help to relax. If you translate the word "mandala" it means "circle" but a mandala is far more than just a simple shape ... It gives you relaxation, inspiration and harmony. Creating a mandala is a great experience! More information!... More

    by Davidwatmough | 21st of May, 2011

    After the long cool dark winter struggling to create and upload innovative images to Dreamstime the thought of choosing a holiday destination filled me with excitement. Early spring is best because of special low priced deals on offer at the start of the season before children'... More
  • Mind the size

    by Grisho | 10th of May, 2011

    I just wanted to share a personal observation with the rest of the contributors. Maybe a lot of you are already aware of this but I guess some of you are not. So, it's about the maximum size we should save our images/illustrations. The thing is that if you upload images with... More

  • Make your images pop with blending modes

    by Tamarabauer | 19th of April, 2011

    If you're like me, sometimes what comes out of your camera and onto your monitor isn't quite what you had in mind when you took the photo. Sometimes the image might look a bit flat or dull, despite playing with curves or levels in Photoshop. Have you ever tried the blending... More

    by Tamarabauer | 19th of April, 2011

    I became a contributor here at DT in Dec 2010...actually, I started uploading in Nov 2010 "behind the scenes" while I waited for my exclusivity with another agency to come to an end...so my PF wasn't visible until the beginning of December. In February 2011 I decided to... More

  • Chromatic aberration

    by Tamarabauer | 4th of April, 2011

    Chromatic aberration appears in photos as "fringes" of color along boundaries that separate dark and bright parts of the image and can be most annoying. Even with Canon L glass and a reasonably high end camera, I'm still faced with it in certain situations - with trees... More
