    by Bradcalkins | 28th of April, 2009

    One of the hidden gems on the DT main page is the 'Latest' tab: Latest Photos This gives you two very interesting tools: 1. Latest downloads. This is a quick look at 5 or so of the latest purchases made by buyers. I am often surprised at what kinds of things people... More

  • Try to be a buyer for a while

    by Starblue | 14th of April, 2009

    Last week one of my friend told me about her experience of searching images of angels. After our discussion, I´ve tried the part of a buyer. I would suggest to all photographers to make such an experience. Especially for getting an idea how keywording is an important, but... More

  • a male dominated domain?

    by Tan510jomast | 9th of February, 2009

    earlier this morning i was answering a question put forward by a peer who was wondering why only the "sexy pictures seem to sell ". the poster wondered is it because "designers are mostly males". i thought that was an interesting topic and a rather funny observation.... More
  • will buyers be looking for the same images?

    by Tan510jomast | 4th of February, 2009

    I suppose it makes little difference to those of us who are new contributors in the micro stock trade. But I can't help wondering if all the surveys about trends, best selling images historically, etc.. really make any impact nowadays, or before this time. Like magazines,... More
  • More statistics

    by Charlydamart | 7th of January, 2009

    I think it would be great to have some more statistics about what buyers are looking for in DT. I don't know if it exists already in DT, but to know which images have been the most downloaded today, last week, last month and ever could inspire all contributors to upload... More

  • Nice Comment From A Buyer

    by Maigi | 18th of December, 2008

    I'm so happy about those buyers, who take a little time to tell us, how they gonna use our images. Today a lovely lady bought this image and wrote me: "I think I'd like to use this on my website. Thank you!" That made my day. :) See Article
  • How you use the images?

    by Papepi | 18th of December, 2008

    For buyers- I think that all photographers and designers like to know how their images are used. Why do not we write a few words each time you buy? Make us happy and would create a dialogue between we. Maybe I am too idealistic... What do you think of this? For photographers... More

  • buyers and their suggestions

    by Helioshelen | 6th of November, 2008

    but who are the buyers? what kind of publishing? What kind of companies? sincerely sometimes becomes hard to find good "ideas" ... and this, because we do not know what is required. It would be nice to have a section reserved for buyers and their demands or suggestions... More

  • Buyers and Sellers

    by Bchecjon | 31st of August, 2008

    I love to read the blogs from people around the world, who share a common love for photography. Photographers share their knowledge and their musings on just about everything. One thing I have noticed however, is that there are very few blogs and articles from the buyers.... More
  • Making money on Dreamstime

    by Litifeta | 4th of August, 2008

    For a lot of newcomers, there is the question nagging in their minds about how much money you could possibly make. It must be the analyst in me, because I hear lots of stories, but simply do not believe them. So for the past few years I have been keeping a track of around... More

  • Three sedona shots to one buyer

    by Taragolden | 7th of July, 2008

    I just had my first sale to a buyer who took three of my Sedona images.. I wonder if thats because i had them in a collection so they would be easier to find. It would be nice if we could get a little mori nfo on the buyer. In this case the search terms showed up as n/a... More
  • Messages from buyers.

    by Irisangel | 20th of June, 2008

    Wouldn't it be nice if all buyers left a note saying where and how our images are being used? I understand that most buyers are very busy business people and it would be too time consuming for them to leave a note every time they downloaded an image, but, every now and then,... More
