  • Look down to move up

    by Litadoolan | 6th of May, 2014

    A pal runs a yacht hire company that has done nothing but thrive. He has a sun tan all year round and lives on a diet of ice cream cones. It feels like he was born in a bed of roses and I wish him well. Everyone knows someone like that even if it is from reading about... More

  • 1,001!

    by Theblackrhino | 11th of February, 2014

    In the summer of 2010, I never imagined I'd have a portfolio of over 1,000 illustrations on Dreamstime. It's been an amazing journey as a part-time illustrator. My advice to anyone starting out at Dreamstime is to find your own style and be unashamed to create what you want.... More

  • Time to level 5

    by Bradcalkins | 24th of July, 2011

    As time marches forward I find it interesting to see which of my images will become my top sellers. Some you kind of know right away, while others come out of nowhere... I did a little bit of number crunching to see if it is clear cut right from the start, and if they... More

    by Leahmae | 1st of February, 2011

    by Wordplanet | 31st of January, 2011

    I've been submitting stock photos for a while now but didn't really start adding to my portfolio until late last year, and once I began submitting regularly I saw a big jump in sales. I've found it helpful to join a few forums including this one to learn more about stock... More
