  • 1st sale!

    by Fredbro | 4th of March, 2013

    Hello everyone, Lately, I just made my 1st sale on Dreamstime, about a month after I uploaded my first pictures on the site. I just got 0.35$ richer! 35 cents is not much, but to know that someone found my picture and thought it could be useful in some way is just a great... More
  • Finally 1000 uploads!

    by Libux77 | 19th of February, 2013

    Finally close to 1000 uploads after hard work and almost 2 years here in DT. Unfortunately quantity doesn't count in this business where quality instead rules. In this two years I realized 740 sales that are few taking into account time I usually spend in this game. I am... More

  • 1.000!!!

    by Gheburaseye | 15th of November, 2012

    I finally reached a total of 1000 images online at dreamstime! I am very happy with this goal .... but according to my calculations I should have been much higher as the number of images (still following the average inserted by dreamstime). I will recover if I can, a... More
  • Introducing My Mom!

    by Angelaostafichuk | 19th of October, 2012

    After years of telling my mom to sign up for Dreamstime, she finally did and I thought i would blog on her behalf as she is very busy : ) My mom is an amazing teacher and has shown me much over the years and I have learnt so much from her. Right now she is focusing on local... More
  • My first 100$!

    by Dark3y3s | 21st of September, 2012

    I have finally reached my first 100$ today, after more than 2 years contributing to DT agency :) Although somewhere along the way I lost my hope for this thing to happen, when I saw today that I achieved it I felt really happy and raised my hopes and expectations back high.... More

  • reached a milestone

    by Inyrdreams | 29th of August, 2012

    I did spot a photo of a ferris wheel I shot as a editor's choice, so that was exciting! and it sold the first hour it was posted! I figure it took 6 months to get the first hundred and half that to get the next 200 so maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks here? now... More

  • setting goals

    by Phoenixci | 8th of July, 2012

    Who would have believed a few months ago that I, a photographer without any training, would have reached over 100 photos accepted. The start of the journey was hard and after many refusals I wondered, (as many others have I am sure) if this was for me. I decided to take every... More
  • My hundredth image has been sold!

    by Baldas1950 | 24th of May, 2012

    Today I reached my goal of 100 images sold, and I am very happy for this! This my hundredth image has been sold with 11 credits. I noticed that sales have resumed in May, perhaps with a lower rate than in the past, but the average selling price has increased at a level... More
  • Portfolio Milestone - 1,000 Images

    by Peanutroaster | 1st of May, 2012

    I just reached 1,000 images in my portfolio after ten months after discovering and deciding I should try this micro-stock thing. I must admit two things. 1. I didn't think I'd reach this point this soon. Who could imagine there were 1.000 things to photograph? 2. I thought... More
  • Milestone 100 sales!

    by Vcarmstrong | 19th of April, 2012

    Many people in the Dreamstime community repeat the wisdom "Keep uploading, the sale will come!". It really is true, slowly but steadily I see my sales increasing and as I continue to learn and try to produce more concept photos I expect the sales will continue to grow... More

    by Vcarmstrong | 4th of April, 2012

    After 7 months of Dreamstime, I met a milestone of 300 images with this photo. It is encouraging to meet another milestone. If you just keep plugging away, you will reach goals and milestones. The trick is, don't give up and keep learning from your mistakes and the community.... More
  • Finding Inspiration

    by Mvogel | 20th of February, 2012

    Recently I have been looking for inspiration. Everywhere I go I see things that inspire me to create an illustration. Currently my list of projects is much longer that the time that I have available but I like always having something to work on. I have also been looking... More

  • 2 Milestones at the same time! 200 uploads, $100.00

    by Vcarmstrong | 22nd of January, 2012

    Five months into Microstock at Dreamstime, I hit two milestones on the same night with this photo. Next milestone .... a level 2 image. One thing I like about Dreamstime and microstock is that I don't know where I will end up, but there is always that next goal and milestone... More
