  • Image Adoption

    by Celiaak | 28th of August, 2014

    It is always a joy to know one of our forgoten images fallen in to level 0 threshold has been adopted (AKA sold). I don't mind if it is a credit sale or a subscription sale. I feel happy just to know someone took the time to find it and the image is good enough to be adopted... More

  • Why don't increase the level of subscription?

    by Andrews71 | 21st of September, 2013

    I think that the price of selling in DT should be reviewed by management. For example, my last 20 picture sold just 4 are with credits and 16 (!!) are with subscriptions at 0.42$ each I can comprehend that we earn on volume and not on the single picture sold, but I... More

    My favorite magazine as a kid was Mad Magazine. I was a big fan of Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions by Al Jaffee, Spy Vs. Spy from the mind of Antonio Prohías and of course the "One Day..." strips of Don Martin. Now that my son is a twelve, he's discovered Mad Magazine... More

  • Published Photos! Credits???

    by Klicaqui | 28th of January, 2012

    I saw 6 of my photos published in a book, I started to be very happy to see them published but then I realized that there was no name anywhere near my photos, so I went back to the editorial page and noticed that the only credits were to two photographers ( who had also pictures... More
  • Milestone - First P-EL sale!

    by Peanutroaster | 14th of January, 2012

    I waited a week before crowing about this - just in case it was a mistake or something. Checking in on the old earnings report and seeing a 50 credit sale instead of a sub sale makes ones eyed do a double take. I guess now I'll have to keep my eye out for this image... More
