  • Increasing Acceptance Level

    by Peanutroaster | 30th of January, 2012

    by Peanutroaster | 19th of December, 2011

  • Tip - Leave space for copy

    by Peanutroaster | 14th of November, 2011

    No earthshattering new ideas here but for novices to Dreamstime I think its worth mentioning that stock image buyers want to have room for their copy. Nothing says "amateur" or snapshot more than a composition with the subject in the direct center of the frame.... More
