    by Steveacer | 30th of October, 2014

    I am well on the way to sorting my photos into managed collections on my photographer profile page, I hope that this will help the designers to find what they need quicker. It was actually easier to do than I though, once I had opened two browser windows at the same time... More

  • Photographer as Designer

    by Mlhead | 26th of April, 2012

    Besides photography I am a writer so with the advent of self publishing through Amazon I decided to put out some novels and short stories. The process is very much "do it yourself" from typing, to layout, to cover design. So I have taken on the role of designer for the books... More
  • To collage or not to collage. Designer opinions needed please.

    by Birksphotography | 17th of February, 2012

    I've seen several post in the boards about collages and I had a question. Would it be better to make collages of a single subject or have multiple single shots of different angles? I'm a little confused on this because I'm not sure what designers like more. Also since... More
  • Tip - Leave space for copy

    by Peanutroaster | 14th of November, 2011

    No earthshattering new ideas here but for novices to Dreamstime I think its worth mentioning that stock image buyers want to have room for their copy. Nothing says "amateur" or snapshot more than a composition with the subject in the direct center of the frame.... More

  • An Open Letter to Designers

    by Verdelho | 25th of May, 2011

    Dear Designers You are probably aware of the current issues regarding lowering cost of images, shrinking returns to photographers and the parlous state of the stock market at this time. Some are questioning that the current situation is sustainable. In a wider sense,... More
  • The key to success is diversity

    by Mvogel | 17th of July, 2010

    I have only been with DT for a sort time and I only have 47 images online but I fell like I have had very good success for a beginner with 12 sales so far. Most of my sales came when I had a lot less images on line, about 35. With so few images I think that my diversity... More

  • The best time for uploading holiday images

    by Awizard | 2nd of March, 2010

    It’s a funny theme, you know. As you can never know when designers need such images and for what purpose unless you are a designer yourself. I know for sure that in the end of the year designers need “calendar” images – I think every photographer notices the selling... More
  • Promotion

    by Maigi | 17th of December, 2009

    Just a simple question: do you, guys, have some ideas, how or where to promote yourself to get the job as a freelance photo manipulator, web designer, photographer and/or digital designer? Did I say "simple" question? Well, not for me. But I thought there are lots of freelancers... More

  • Dreamstime Lightboxes

    by Littlemacproductions | 15th of October, 2009

    A lightbox is a box with a light source and a translucent cover used to view transparenices such as slides, ex-rays, negatives etc. Here at DT lightboxes are a place to group images for view at a later date, add notes, share with others and in general they are like... More

    A great idea came out to light today! In the night of Halloween all Dreamstime community will have to think to our success (success for Dreamstime team, photographers, designers, models…) in the same time, at the same hour…let’s say 22 p.m. GMT. If you agree,... More

    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

    by Taragolden | 29th of October, 2008

    i started here on DT as a contributor but im finding that I'm used to the site and this is where i go to purchase images i need for short online videos i am making. Its kind of interesting to be on the other side of the fence. I find that often im in a hurry and I don't look... More
  • Recruitment opportunities for designers

    by Litifeta | 11th of August, 2008

    Regardless of what the market looks like, the recruitment industry seems to continue to do well. Yesterday in Australia, there was a program on about the worldwide shortage of traffic controllers. You know, the stop and go man, or the lollipop lady. Apparently these people... More
