  • 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

  • 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... More
  • What is She Wearing?

    by Ellenboughn | 20th of February, 2007

    by Rayzer1 | 21st of October, 2014

    My first blog here (though I've got, like, five elsewhere!) but I just want to chronicle my experience on Dreamstime. Starting out hopeful, although I did send a question off to admin to ask if I have to do my own marketing and the answer was yes. So, maybe I'll put these... More
