    by Tangie | 11th of November, 2011

    It's the season for many things - picture-perfect snow falls and autumnal trees, holiday feasts with family and harvest festivals are the first things that come to mind, but everyone has their traditions and nostalgia for this time of year. Universally, it's a season with... More
  • The search engine revealed

    by Tangie | 1st of April, 2010

    Many questions have been asked and heated debates started on this subject in the last few years. It is that thing each and every contributor wonders about at least twice a day when checking account statistics and sales. It is one of Dreamstime's greatest mysteries and best... More

  • What size is....?

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of October, 2008

    The past couple of weeks found me in New York just as Fashion Week was ending and last week in Southern California for a seminar. Perhaps because NY was filled with fashionistas and models, I noticed a lot of very, very thin women in the park and on the street. A jogger... More
  • GENERATION Y

    by Ellenboughn | 19th of August, 2008

    You know who you are, Generation Y. An analysis of Internet and social network use tells me that a majority of you reading this were born between 1977 and 1997. You are the children of the last of the baby boomers and the most studied group of young adults anywhere because... More
  • Rites of Passage

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of May, 2008

  • Composition

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of December, 2007

    There are some composition tricks that apply to stock photography specifically. As more and more image use migrates to the web, the old stock photo rule of leaving room for type is becoming less significant. It is becoming replaced with approaches that enhance an image’... More
  • The RGB of it all

    by Ellenboughn | 10th of August, 2007

    Or is it the CYMK? (One matters online; the other in print). Do you dream in color? Did people dream in black and white before the invention of black and white film? If so, how did they know what the world looked like in black and white? When are color photos best and when... More
  • PACA Annual Meeting

    by Ellenboughn | 5th of May, 2007

    It's late Friday night in Alexandria, Virginia and from my nicely upgraded room on the 24th floor I can see the Capital and the Washington Monument. But I'm not here to sightsee. Tonight was the opening reception of the PACA (Picture Agency Council of America) annual meeting.... More
  • What is She Wearing?

    by Ellenboughn | 20th of February, 2007

    Wardrobe is key to a professional looking image. And the type of clothing that a model is wearing can enhance the salability of an image in more ways than one. Here is a terrific image of a teen writing on the board in her classroom. The model's top gives a clue... More

  • Those tough pigs

    by Physi28 | 8th of February, 2016

    Today I made a sale of a Warthog which is one of the funniest (the piglets) and toughest (mother with piglets) african animals you can imagine. This pic is by far not any of the better Warthog photos I made during several trips to Kenya but sometimes the buyer choses those... More

    by Bartdierickx | 8th of February, 2016

    Dear Dreamstime contributors and designers, It's been a while since I wrote a blog. Everything in my life crumbled apart piece by piece during 2015: April 2015 I dislocated and broke both of my shoulder simultaneous during powerlifting (one of my passions). This meant... More

    Time runs - and I reckon 5 years doing something continuously without giving up is something to be a bit proud of. There are contributors who do far more uploads but I do this for fun - to learn - and I reckon I have learned heaps here. So a big thank you to all my DT friends,... More
