  • RELEVANT Relevancy Searches

    by Clarsen55 | 14th of May, 2012

    I take changes here at dreamstime with a grain of salt...the administration usually does a good job of testing and tweaking until the change is fair and positive. BUT recently I have noticed a distinct downgrade in many of my images appearance in a search. When "buyer searched... More
  • The key word for keywords is: Simplicity

    by Mark6138 | 3rd of May, 2012

  • This is how I keyword...

    by Miraclemoments | 27th of April, 2012

    Key wording can be very intimidating...you sit, you think and wonder what to type and when you have typed all the words you can possible think about you still have only scratched the surface of what the image is all about. You try and think what a possible buyer might... More

  • Welcome more sales! - my best day ever here up to now :)

    by Androniques | 27th of March, 2012

    Hi Dreamers! I do not tend to shout about my so-called "milestones", because I do feel and know too well that I am not particularly fast in getting sales. But today (already safe to say yesterday)... err... "words don't come easy to me" It's either the wind changed and... 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
  • Keep in the loop

    by Birksphotography | 15th of February, 2012

    Uploading images and then waiting in line for the review for seven or eight days can be frustrating. Something you'll want to keep from doing because it can limit the amount of time you have to get sesonal shots done is waiting to upload new images until the old ones get... More

  • Sales followup - adjust your portfolio on the fly

    by Coraldesign | 14th of February, 2012

    Not sure how many of you guys out there upload all the photos you get in a shooting session. I figured out I upload less than 10% of all good photos and some pictures, sometimes because they are pretty similar to one another so I don't even bother to convert them from RAW,... More
