  • 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
  • Another DT milestone!

    by Leesniderphotoimages | 10th of February, 2012

    Today I surpassed the 2,000 sales mark which I consider something of an achievement. I have been a DT member for 3 years this month and it has taken a while but once the ball starts rolling sales DO accrue which further convinces me that the more images one can post on DT... More
  • Impressions of Eve Arnold

    by Shadow69 | 9th of February, 2012

    Earlier this year (January 4, 2012 to be precise) an iconic figure in the realm of photography passed away. Eve Arnold was arguably most renowned for her shots of rich, famous and glitzy superstars and in particular pictures of Marilyn Monroe. But apart from the glamour... More
  • World championship cyclocross in Koksijde / Belgium

    by Kinsjeroen | 31st of January, 2012

    Last sunday, I visited the World Championship cyclocross in Koksijde. Cyclocross is really popular in Belgium, so there were 61000 visitors on a circuit of 3 kilometers. Not too easy to make some pictures with such a crowd on a misty sunday... For your information, the... More
  • 2011 in review

    by Bogdan | 29th of January, 2012

    It’s about one month since we have passed into the New Year. 2011 was the best year yet on Dreamstime, and I will soon celebrate 8 years of collaboration. The growth was overall below my expectation on the beginning of the year, but it is still there despite the many economic... More

  • OF EDITORIAL PICS

    by Akulamatiau | 17th of January, 2012

    Previously, I found it very hard to capture a decent pic specifically meant for RF sale. No logos, business signs, faces, etc. (well, you know the drill) and to obtain model/ property releases is totally out of question. Being an outdoor photographer, it was frustrating... More

    I'm very happy that finally reached 1000 sales, after a bit more than 2 years exclusive on Dreamstime, thanks to a nice extra large kangaroo fight credit sale! Nice milestone to remember :-) I wish I had more time to take photos and upload, but ultimately I think it's... More
  • My 500th Sale in Dreamstime!!

    by Bdspn | 16th of December, 2011

    It takes two years to get 500th download in Dreasmtime. I have started uploading my images about two years ago. But rejection rate was too high and at a particular time they restricted me to upload just one image a day. I had to shot by a compact camera and... More
