  • CAPTCHA

    by Mani33 | 27th of June, 2013

    How many times you had tried to log in your account & you failed? haha I confess, I myself had failed many times signing in some private accounts, because of this CAPTCHA security technology! Specially using my mobile, or when they are case sensitive while you don't know!... More
  • 700 Reasons for backing up your computer.

    by Daddiomanottawa | 22nd of May, 2013

    It happened again. For the second time over the course of many, many years, I've suffered a hard-drive failure. The poor 500GB drive on my desktop unit, after enduring years of endless spinning and whirring,and for reasons unknown to me, passed on. And with much sadness... More
  • Gear vs Eye

    by Mangalika | 9th of May, 2013

    I often encounter a question. Well, I am so sure most of you must have answered such question. You upload a good shot in your public profile and the next question will be 'Which camera?' Might be the most irritating question for a true artist :) Well, better gears do help... More
  • Newbie vs DT. 0-2

    by Delned | 7th of May, 2013

    Well, I just got a hard lesson from DT. I uploaded 10 photos within about two weeks and the first two who were moderated were rejected. Honestly, I had high expectations because I spent a lot of time making and edit these pictures. 0-1. "This image is over-processed/ overfiltered.... More
  • Repetitive Motion Injury

    by Sunguy | 30th of January, 2013

    The age of digital photography has given me a problem that would not have occurred back in the film and darkroom era – namely, repetitive motion injury from processing images on the computer in Photoshop. Hence, my upload of work over the next while will be very small... More
  • Compact camera or pancake lens?

    by Martingraf | 30th of January, 2013

    Lately I realized that I wasn't using my Canon 5D II as much as I should. I also realized that about 70 percent of my uploads were done with my compact camera Canon G1X. Well the reason was quite obvious - I had my Canon G1X most of the time with me when I went travelling,... More

  • Love to reach a goal

    by Inyrdreams | 16th of December, 2012

    I love it when I reach a goal... It at least makes me feel like I have accomplished something. One goal I set for myself was to have 400 images uploaded and accepted to Dreamstime, and to have at least 100 sales. well I did make it to the 400 mark this week, although I... More
  • Viewfinder or LCD screen? Bet Cartier-Bresson would've gone LCD!

    by Alamourus | 15th of December, 2012

    Just got the new Canon M shipped in from Hong Kong (no shipping, tax or duty charges!) and it has no viewfinder. For a lot of people, that is a big omission and it weighed heavily on my mind before I decided to purchase it. I've had compacts before and they are ok but... More

  • Reflections on a photo contest...just days after US election

    by Alamourus | 9th of November, 2012

    I've never won a photo contest--until just this week. Just days after Obama won a second term. It was an open contest put on by a local business group: you post a set of twelve pictures on Facebook and the ones with the most votes during a set period gets into a calendar... More
  • Additional format

    by Angelaravaioli | 18th of October, 2012

    Hi all, I have not yet reached 1000 share photos online but I hope to do so shortly, and I just ventured to load some RAW format image hoping that might be of interest to someone. Right now they are just these: because the charging is a bit longer so the time for acceptance.... More
  • 2000 pictures! wow

    by Noamfein | 27th of September, 2012

    I have reached 2000 pictures, wow. I started few years ago and it was just a hobby (and still is), and I never thought I would reach 2000 pictures. This site is great and every time I sell a picture, even for very little money - it makes me happy More

  • Bridge fetish or a lesson in composition? You decide!

    by Tangjans | 21st of August, 2012

    I've got a confession to make: I've got a bridge fetish. I find the lined interior and exterior of bridges irresistible, and I always have an overwhelming urge to photograph, dissect and digest them during my travels. Take for example the Helix Bridge at the Marina Bay... More
  • The best compliment to listen to

    by Billysiew | 19th of July, 2012

    "Wow, looks more beautiful than realistic!" Here are my recent photos that someone comment with this compliment. Is it true? :) See Article

    by Chanevy | 30th of June, 2012

    The rule of thirds is an indispensable guideline for composing commercial images, but there are other options out there! Have you tried using vanishing points to create perspective in your photographs? This is a concept that is used frequently in drawings and illustrations,... More
  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review

    by Bradcalkins | 22nd of June, 2012

    If you follow my blogs and forum posts, you know I've long been a fan of the Micro Four Thirds system. I'm a firm believer that for most photos or end uses we have reached a point where full frame cameras are an unnecessary expense (each to their own, of course!). I've... More
