  • 3 milestones for 2 weeks

    by Igordabari | 2nd of September, 2012

    I passed three important milestones for last 2 weeks: 1) 2000th $ in my pocket coming from DT (August 22nd). 2) 1000th day with DT (August 24th). 3) 1000th sale (2nd Sept, right away). Is not it a good chance to say me: "Great, Igor! You are brave! Congratulations!... More
  • At last... 50th image is up!

    by Acosmin | 28th of August, 2012

    After almost a year of inactivity and driven by a few sales I decided to start uploading new images on Dreamstime. This month i doubled my portfolio and eventually reached image no 50 but I'm still wondering should I become a Dreamstime exclusive or should I try to promote... More
  • Another milestone...

    by Gennaro86 | 27th of August, 2012

    Finally, one of my images has reached level 4: 10 download!!! I know that the higher level of the image will result in a decrease of the download but the satisfaction is really great ... To date, 153 people have used my photos in their works, and that makes me really happy... More
  • 100 Sales!

    by Celiaak | 24th of August, 2012

    I finally made 100 sales! I never thought it could be so fast. This is the 100th image sold: It took me 9 months to fail uploading, understand what was wrong, upload more, start selling, build portfolio constantly, and now I have 321 images uploaded. I can foresee... More
  • Four hundred warm thank to the buyers of my pictures

    by Digikhmer | 3rd of August, 2012

    Started early last year, I started to upload my travel pictures. I never thought that my pictures can interest anybody else than myself as archive of my family life. Instead, there is more than 400 hundreds buyers/pictures downloaded since. Such a surprise for me. Finally,... More
  • First milestone: 50 uploads

    by Rosariomanzo | 2nd of August, 2012

    I know that this is a very little achievement when compared to the great contributors here at Dreamstime, but I'm so proud of it. I've applied for exclusivity also. This is my way to say thank you to this great community. Since I've joined it, I've been able to raise the... More
  • 300$ Milestone !!!

    by Andrews71 | 30th of July, 2012

    I would like to share with all of other photographers in DT, my first great milestone: 300 $ of sales!! I am really happy for this result (that I know is quite small or can sound ridicolous for expert) beacuse I got this goal since I changed my status in "exclusive".... More
  • My journey to 3000 sales reached today.

    by Retina2020 | 18th of July, 2012

    Wow. It just seems like yesterday when I started at Dreamstime and enter the world of microstock photography. I remember vividly saying to myself, it's worth a shot (pardon the pun) since I already enjoy taking photos anyway. What can a lose? Almost 5 years later, I finally... More
  • Milestone - first $1,000

    by Peanutroaster | 16th of July, 2012

    Now here is a milestone worthy of marking - I just reached my first $1,000 in sales. This month also marks my one year anniversary with Dreamstime, 600+ sales and 1,354+ uploads. And importantly my acceptance rate has gone from about 20 percent to around 70 percent.... More
  • 2 years later...

    by Lauriey | 16th of May, 2012

    Exactly two years from the day I joined here I've hit a milestone... my 5th time cashing out! When I joined, I was nervous. I took it slow and tried to pick the best of my images only to submit. I was nervous, but it did lead to a high acceptance ratio! It's a good... 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
  • Double milestones

    by Cooper5022 | 17th of April, 2012

    I have recently reached 2 milestones. Firstly I uploaded a small batch of nature images which took my online images to 700. And secondly I had my first level 4 image. So far it has been slow going in terms of downloads this month, but I am hoping it will... More
  • 1000 images

    by Bogdan | 16th of April, 2012

    Maybe for many of my fellow photographers 1000 images is already a milestone of the past. It is for me now as well. It is however an important milestone as it took me about 8 years to reach it. According to my current production rates, it will take about the same amount to... More
  • Happy Day! 100 Uploads!

    by Cmoulton | 6th of April, 2012

    Well, after a very long learning process, which of course continues to continue ;) I logged onto Dreamstime today to find a little surprise - Overnight the images I had in the queue were reviewed and finally next to word "Uploads" on my profile page, I see three digits... More
  • 7 months, 300 images on line

    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
