  • My First Submissions to Dreamstime

    by Yourlettertome | 3rd of April, 2015

    I think it was a web search that led me to Dreamstime originally, and that was when I first discovered this thing called microstock. I thought, OK, why not sort through all these photos that fill up my hard drive and see what I can add. At first that seemed like a simple... More
  • Dreamstime iPhone app

    by Idruzhinin | 5th of February, 2015

    Do you use it? From time to time I do. I can say, it's pretty good! But unfortunately it has several annoying bugs: 1. If you have a call when attributing a photo and then you are back to proceed keywording you will find the photo submitted. And you can't change it then:... More
  • Idaho Heritage Continued

    by Willhavenrg | 4th of November, 2014

    Private land that borders public land is often an extension of the public land. It is a natural habit to venture beyond the borders of parks and recreation area. However unless the is a posted agreement between the public land and the private owner, it is best to ask permission... More

    by Feralbeagle | 11th of July, 2014

    I am very excited to see my first approved submissions in Dreamstime. The feedback is very helpful on those that were refused. I think you'll see my approval ratio rise from here on. There will be more coming soon. I have hundreds.   See Article

    I am so excited, this morning I had a file approved for the most recent assignment! I've submitted to two other assignments in the past, but sadly did not get accepted. Here is my image that was accepted. It had sold once prior to this assignment. More
  • The Low-Down on Legal Language

    by Xixinxing | 30th of August, 2013

    There is a recent trend among agencies to shift the legality requirement to the copyright holder who is sending the work to the agent, aka the photographer. A lot of this is practical. The agent cannot certify that a model/property release is legal since the agent was... More

    Based on numbers assigned to my Dreamstime submissions in a 10-hour period, I have calculated some interesting figures regarding average Dreamstime submission rates: 26 submissions per minute 1,549 submissions per hour 37,174 submissions per day 260,215 submissions... More
  • Keep an eye out for your images being used illegally

    by BCritchley | 24th of September, 2012

    I have today carried out a search of my images using Google's image search. Found lots being used with watermarks and subsequently used DT's "report misuse" tab in the management area, you should do the same if you find infringements. One blogger responded me today,... More
  • Few words about the hayloft

    by Shmeljov | 22nd of September, 2012

    Can youn guess why do these hayloft photos mean that much to me? Surrender? Actually this one is easy - starting from this photo session we are counting our days of relationship with Aljona. It should be mentioned that if someone thinks that we asked permission to take... More
  • Such a long reviewing time!

    by Acosmin | 21st of August, 2012

    For some time now it seems that the ETR until my submissions are reviewed keeps growing day by day. The latest images had an ETR of 105 hours yesterday and now are at 115 hours. If the website is so overwhelmed with submissions they should consider hiring some new staff to... More
  • Controversial: To Resubmit or Not After a Rejection?

    by MorganOliver | 1st of August, 2012

    I have seen many DT newcomers with questions and seeking advice. Not to say that I am the best person to bring up this topic, with my 51% acceptance ratio, but DT allows you to resubmit a photo after being rejected for a reason. There are multiple DT reviewers and they definitely... More
  • Take Warning Signs Seriously

    by Jcimagery | 11th of May, 2012

    Living on 55 acres banking a scenic river, with a 270 degree view of a mountain range, we get all kinds of people on our property. Rafters systematically pull up and cut across our pasture to get to the county road, dropping their popped rafts/tubes/floaties/beer... More

    by Birksphotography | 4th of January, 2012

    This year is going to be a big leap for me. I've been a contributor of DT for a couple of years but I haven't really done much. This year I will be adjusting my submissions to be RF stock oriented and being more involved in the community. I'm looking forward to seeing... More

  • Submitting photos

    by Mightymogwai | 16th of November, 2011

    I thought that it would be much better to divide the submission process. In the first stage you have to submit just the photo without keywording with a small description. The editor will check if photo is acceptable based on the technical qualities. On the next step you keyword... More
