    by Gbfoto | 15th of June, 2012

    I have had some time on my hands the last days as I managed to crack my toe (ouch) and was instructed not to walk unless necessary. I think I had too much spare time and cracks and stuff on the brain :O) I found the time to do some long overdue photoshop compositing with... More
  • Updates to Pinterest Terms

    by Peanutroaster | 7th of June, 2012

  • The key word for keywords is: Simplicity

    by Mark6138 | 3rd of May, 2012

    Wherever I have information available about the terms used by buyers to select an image they have invariably used one of the simplest terms in my keywords list. Recent sales for me that highlight this include the terms 'gravel path' and 'headphones' as well as 'inhaler'... More

  • How mature is this mature market?

    by Peanutroaster | 2nd of May, 2012

    They say the micro stock world is a maturing market. But how mature can a market be when new players seem to jump in everyday? It is a mature market in many ways but in a lot of ways the players still act very immature. I think the most recent debate about rate changes... More

  • 1000 images

    by Bogdan | 16th of April, 2012
