  • Relative success assessment:)

    by Scaramax | 28th of September, 2011

    Todays visit of DT pages made me once again happy - there were made some sales and also portfolio acceptance is getting slightly better for me by the time... ...but - as probably everyone - I´m always wondering, if it goes well or not.. Of course, it always can be better,... More
  • Dreamstime progress part 4

    by Twindesign | 15th of September, 2011

    I wont make it to long this time. I wanted to show my progress again when I had 150 pictures online. I finally got there. I did not find the time to shoot more often because of my daytime job that also becomes a night job lately. I am posting my progress for new member that... More
  • Reached $10!

    by Mnsanthoshkumar | 11th of August, 2011

    I have been an active contributor since past 8 months, especially since May. Reached $10 milestone yesterday! My initial phase was trying to create images which was technically correct. It took me around 3-4 months to get an approval ratio of 80%+ for each batch of upload... More
  • My Dreamstime progress

    by Twindesign | 6th of July, 2011

    I am a Dreamstime member for some time now. But until recently I was only a buyer. Just a few weeks ago I got the idea to upload some images of my own. I first started reading blogs and websites about stock photography and found out that it wasn't that hard to get some images... More
  • The perfect camera - does it exist?

    by Bradcalkins | 27th of June, 2011

    My last blog talked about how less choice can be helpful, but there is another aspect to this that is particularly applicable to photography. Many of us spend a lot of time thinking about what gear to buy. What is interesting is that we don't just compare the options, which... More
  • Exclusivity expectation

    by Meryll | 22nd of September, 2010

    I wonder, is DT more strict to the exclusive contributors then non-exclusives? In other words, are there higher expectations for exclusive contents regarding quality? See Article
  • Difference between expectation and reality

    by Gussmann | 21st of September, 2010

    Now I have reached my personal first goal in DT. More than 50 photos were accepted. Of the more than 120 photos reject, we want not to talk to them now. But the rate of accepted photos increases. This is most definitely the right way. What surprised me most, however, is... More

  • A Matter of Expectations!

    by Mani33 | 12th of November, 2009

    Hi all, I Just thought of sharing you this as I was working on a new project & of course DT photos were involved... Most of the times buyers imagine the use of the image before they download it! But the fact is that the photo doesn't always reach the final work for... More
  • Its a start!

    by Ilovealix | 13th of December, 2008

    Finally I got my 1st pic approved yesterday though the ratio was only 4%, anyway it's a beginning. I think I need to learn well about the utilities in order to get more pics approved. I'm looking forward to the first sale and more than that. Here is the first pic online.... More
