  • The key word for keywords is: Simplicity

    by Mark6138 | 3rd of May, 2012

    Wherever I have information available about the terms used by buyers to select an image they have invariably used one of the simplest terms in my keywords list. Recent sales for me that highlight this include the terms 'gravel path' and 'headphones' as well as 'inhaler'... More

  • How mature is this mature market?

    by Peanutroaster | 2nd of May, 2012

    They say the micro stock world is a maturing market. But how mature can a market be when new players seem to jump in everyday? It is a mature market in many ways but in a lot of ways the players still act very immature. I think the most recent debate about rate changes... More

    by Gheburaseye | 21st of April, 2012

    What sadness: so far this month I sold just two illustrations on dreamstime ... oh, how strange are these changes in the sales! There are periods where I sell a lot and others where I sell just a little, even though it was many months since I sold so few pictures.... More

  • 1000 images

    by Bogdan | 16th of April, 2012

    Maybe for many of my fellow photographers 1000 images is already a milestone of the past. It is for me now as well. It is however an important milestone as it took me about 8 years to reach it. According to my current production rates, it will take about the same amount to... More

  • Unrequited love

    by Dprogers | 27th of March, 2012

    Some of my favourite photos sell really well and some I don't expect would do well also do well. Once I put up a photo of an Eland and it sold within a few days. That somebody out there wanted an Eland (a type of antelope) amazed me. Which... More

  • DT popular searching keywords during the last year.

    by Banol2007 | 16th of February, 2012

    To get success in the micro stock business we have to take into consideration that different stock agency has different style, approaches & preferences. I did not find information what DT buyers are looking for & decided to collect dates from the DT POPULAR SEARCH during... More
  • Another DT milestone!

    by Leesniderphotoimages | 10th of February, 2012

    Today I surpassed the 2,000 sales mark which I consider something of an achievement. I have been a DT member for 3 years this month and it has taken a while but once the ball starts rolling sales DO accrue which further convinces me that the more images one can post on DT... More

  • Biggest sale so far

    by M4rio1979 | 20th of January, 2012

    I sold my editorial image today for 4.20$ or 7 credits, and this is my biggest sale so far. I'm very pleased with this, and this is my second editorial image sold. Last one was also editorial sale, but with subscription, so only for 0.42$. This is very encouraging for me... More

    by Birksphotography | 19th of January, 2012

    Yeah, it might be a little late for Christmas but new stuff is always a present. For many years, I've done my photography with an on camera flash, kit lens 18-55 mm, and for most of the time available light. Now that I'm shooting commercial images rather than artistic... More
