    by Newnow | 16th of May, 2014

    Today DT approved my 150th photo! I'm very happy because of that, but even more happy cause I really see the progress in my photos, so my learning and long evening hours with camera alone and in front of computer had paid off. And I want everyone to see the difference!... More

    by Arturoosorno | 4th of January, 2013

  • Reflecting on a Year with Dreamstime

    by Sunguy | 13th of November, 2012

    Although I joined Dreamstime in the summer of 2011, it wasn’t until the fall that I became exclusive and started to give it some serious effort. Looking back on my first year with Dreamstime I feel content. I have over 550 images on line with over 200 sales ranging from... More
  • 400 uploads

    by Libux77 | 17th of February, 2012

    Finally and with lots of effort I hit 400 uploads. Looking back I can say I learnt a lot both on techniques and on the rules of DT and the market. Rate of uploading is still higher than rate of sales and taking into account rate of uploading is low, you understand number... More

    by Llareggub | 14th of February, 2012

    by Jianbinglee | 17th of December, 2011

  • Commitment

    by Alexhor | 11th of November, 2011

    Howdy, my fellow dreamstimers! It's almost a year since I wrote my last blog article: Milestones in action. Since that, it was read over 1000 times. I hope it helped someone because after publishing that article I didn't follow my own advice. I didn't set up any goal,... More
  • If you fall off a horse...

    by Llareggub | 10th of August, 2011

    You should get straight back on, I had a really good month last month on DT with revenue up about 100% on my previous best month and I passed the 300 picture on line mark and got an acceptance rate of 85%. The end of the month certainly resulted in a celebratory beer and... More

  • Your Image is your image!!

    by Gwoeii | 20th of June, 2010

  • I want to believe

    by Claudiofichera | 8th of April, 2010

    Every day I wake up at 7:00, start to heat water and turn on the computer. The lucky days, I see that Dreamstime photos sold for U$S 3,x 2,x, or 0,xx. The bad days, I do not sell any pictures, and the day is presented gray. This morning, an hour ago, my income grew strongly.... More

    by Ratmandude | 24th of March, 2010

    by Kikkerdirk | 16th of December, 2009

    I have not been uploading as much as I would like lately. But I did put some extra work in the pictures I made. And the extra work did pay of! Only two weeks after uploading I had my first level 2 image. Here it is, my manipulated food! Hope the rest of the series... More
