  • The image that allowed me to Dream on Dreamstime..

    by Henrymm | 13th of December, 2012

    Like every beginners, I was very frustrated, demoralized and felt hopeless during my initial stage at Dreamstime. Tons of rejections as a result of blur images, lens fringing, chromatic aberrations, uneven sharpness in focus area, image is out of focus, poor optical performance... More

    by Roberto1977 | 24th of September, 2012

    Hello. Time to celebrate for me. I am a man of few words, especially in a not exciting period on a personal level (economic crisis, not a lot of work, bla bla bla), so I’d like to share with you some achievements in these 5 years. My first sale: 0.60$ 11/22/2007... More

  • My journey to 3000 sales reached today.

    by Retina2020 | 18th of July, 2012

    Wow. It just seems like yesterday when I started at Dreamstime and enter the world of microstock photography. I remember vividly saying to myself, it's worth a shot (pardon the pun) since I already enjoy taking photos anyway. What can a lose? Almost 5 years later, I finally... More

  • 400 uploads

    by Libux77 | 17th of February, 2012

    Finally and with lots of effort I hit 400 uploads. Looking back I can say I learnt a lot both on techniques and on the rules of DT and the market. Rate of uploading is still higher than rate of sales and taking into account rate of uploading is low, you understand number... 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

    by Bdspn | 16th of December, 2011

    It takes two years to get 500th download in Dreasmtime. I have started uploading my images about two years ago. But rejection rate was too high and at a particular time they restricted me to upload just one image a day. I had to shot by a compact camera and... More

    by Libux77 | 17th of November, 2011

    Finally 300 uploads and nevertheless sales are really poor. I dont' know if the reason is due to the low quality of my portfolio or to the lacks of a lot of subjects. Eight days have passed without any sales. Let's hope for the best. Bye bye More
