  • Keywords, what a nuisance!

    by Tangie | 20th of September, 2007

    It is time to look deeply into our hearts and admit the truth: we have not done our homework properly. Honesty is the best policy and we need to be honest with ourselves when it comes to something some of us tend to overlook when uploading images: keywords, title and description.... More

  • Back to Dreamstime

    by And19sv | 13th of May, 2014

    November 2011 - "Hm... Dreamstime. Let's upload some photos." REFUSED. I was mad, I hated this site! "It's not fair! My photos are great!" They were not! But I needed a few years until I realised that I have a lot to learn. May 2014... More

  • On My Way!

    by Iheartcountryphoto | 20th of December, 2013

    A few months ago I purchased my first "real" camera. I have always loved photographing everything but never thought about doing it for any profit. While online trying to teach myself about photography, I stumbled on the DT website. At first, my thoughts were "stock-what?... More
  • Don´t give up!

    by Melbra | 10th of October, 2013

    Hi, this is my first blog :) When I started with DT 1.5 years ago, I had a lot of rejected photos. I didn´t want to give up, even if it was frustrating. I started to go to the College for a course in portrait and food photography, read a lot and just made photos. Learning... More

  • How to get ahead in stock photography

    by Bradcalkins | 20th of September, 2013

    Like a few others here, I'm skeptical of the benefit of using social media to promote your stock photography. While there may be some benefit, one has to also consider the opportunity cost. How much time spent on social media could be spent on producing more images?... More
  • Keep shooting, Keep improving

    by Vcarmstrong | 24th of July, 2013

    This is a theme that you hear not only in photography but in stock photography as well. I can attest that this is the case if you put forth the effort. Things were rocky when I started about two years ago. My first month were all rejections, but I kept at it and here... More
  • Learning Video...Help!

    by Angelaostafichuk | 22nd of June, 2013

    Earlier on this year I made a resolution to branch out into other mediums, and video was one of the ones that seemed to have the most potential. You can do so much with it, and video can be an excellent tool for empowerment when taught to others. AS a female, I see what's... More
  • Im loving this.

    by Beyo1980 | 14th of June, 2013

    The last day of 2012. I still remember the day like it was yesterday. The time was ten in the morning, and I was cuddling my (at that moment) 6 month old son, while trying to get pictures with my Nikon 9100. I failed, and the compact fell to the ground. Lens locked, screen... More
  • The Road to 3,000 Sales

    by Starletdarlene | 6th of May, 2013

    When I first started on this road to Stock Photography I thought it would be an easy transition from Wedding Photography to Stock Photography, but it wasn't as easy as I anticipated. What makes a great Wedding Photograph doesn't necessarily make great Stock Photography.... More
  • 500 images online - time to celebrate!

    by Martingraf | 26th of March, 2013

    Two years ago, if someone would have told me that I will have half a thousand images online at Dreamstime - I would have said "No way". Now the 500th picture has been accepted. Funny though that they're brick walls, because I never thought I would take... More
