  • Dreamstime coffee lounge

    by Tangie | 22nd of August, 2007

    I know what you will say "Oh, no, not another metablog". :P. I have thought for a very long time to write a basic guide about blog, what to write, when to write, how to write. But then, who am I to set the rules? And being member of the Admin., my words may be taken as rule/... More
  • How to get ahead in stock photography

    by Bradcalkins | 20th of September, 2013

    Like a few others here, I'm skeptical of the benefit of using social media to promote your stock photography. While there may be some benefit, one has to also consider the opportunity cost. How much time spent on social media could be spent on producing more images?... More
  • Finally, my own independent blog!

    by Robinstockphotos | 18th of May, 2013

    I have been writing a lot of articles here and many don't really show up high on Google search results. And those who aren't members cannot follow me. I cannot post images not yet approved by Dreamstime for sale. So here goes my new blog RobinStockPhotos on WordPress... More
  • Turning Rejection Into Self-Promotion

    by Angelaostafichuk | 30th of January, 2012

    My name is Angela and I have a rejection problem. It's not the usual suspects that most women my age worry about, so it's slightly tricky on learning how to deal when you can't turn to a friend for advice. I of course, am talking about stock photography rejections. it'... More
  • Hi

    by Ewamewa2 | 30th of July, 2011

    I have been with DT for almost a year and finally I decided to start blogging (as DT became a kind of addiction:). I am not a professional photographer and I know that my portfolio is quite small and not diverse enough since I upload travel-pictures only, but anyway, I have... More
  • Time is money, even when it's free

    by Stuartkey | 17th of January, 2011

    I've just completed a blog post on my website, but the images from it are not from my Dreamstime portfolio, so I can't show them here. However, the image to the left is used on one of the finished images, and by blogging here it will enable Yewkeo to see where I have used... More

  • Blog Credits. What to Do?

    by Kenneystudios | 21st of September, 2007

    It started a few weeks ago. A short message was attached to an image approval email. I read it. I wondered, "Why?" I paid it no mind. A couple days later, I clicked on the "Blogs!" tab. I started reading some of the articles posted. Some where interesting, some useful,... More

  • Credits on Dreamstime

    by Natie | 22nd of August, 2007

    I don't understand this system. I've read about credits for blogging, and I supposed I'll be credited for every useful article or comment. But it turns out that I receive credits only for my own articles. The question is: why read and comment the other people's articles... More
  • What Should I Do?

    by Davidwattsjr | 21st of August, 2007

    After blogging here for a little while, I've wondered - what should I do with these credits I'm accumulating? I'm a photographer, and I don't buy photos. But I've got 13 credits now with which I may buy photos. What should I do with them? Perhaps you're in the same... More
  • Credits for blogging - good or bad?

    by Missb | 31st of July, 2007

    All of us got the message, I hope; we are getting one free credit for a blog post. This sounds great, of course, but is it good for everyone? I thought I'd buy some nice image from an other photographer and then I got the idea of buying one of my own. This worked, to my... More
