  • Finally 1000 uploads!

    by Libux77 | 19th of February, 2013

    Finally close to 1000 uploads after hard work and almost 2 years here in DT. Unfortunately quantity doesn't count in this business where quality instead rules. In this two years I realized 740 sales that are few taking into account time I usually spend in this game. I am... More

  • Teaching Photography

    by Angelaostafichuk | 30th of January, 2013

    It's that time of year again. Christmas has come and gone and many people that got a digital camera for a present have given up in frustration, their dreams of being the next Ansel Adams or Steve McCurry gone out the door. Just because Santa dropped a camera in their... More

  • Sale number 200 !..

    by Baldas1950 | 9th of January, 2013

    With this sold image my sales have reached 200! It was taken in the village of Santa Gertrudis, located in the hinterland of the island of Ibiza. The image falls into a category of pictures very simple, but I think very effective because they create in the viewer the... More

  • The image that allowed me to Dream on Dreamstime..

    by Henrymm | 13th of December, 2012

    Like every beginners, I was very frustrated, demoralized and felt hopeless during my initial stage at Dreamstime. Tons of rejections as a result of blur images, lens fringing, chromatic aberrations, uneven sharpness in focus area, image is out of focus, poor optical performance... More
  • Sales Number 200

    by Martingraf | 13th of December, 2012

    A small milestone for me - this number 200 - and I'm glad it's actually this picture. It's one of the rather rare moments I took a picture of people - I only have 4 "models" and they don't always have the mood to walk up and down a hill for me ;). Sales have been rather low... More

    After 4 years that I've been with DT I reached 1000 share photos online, all this with a bit of trouble by dedicating ourselves just a little of my spare time, always trying to figure out what types of waste is better picture send, trying a little everything and hoping... More

    by Alvera | 20th of November, 2012

    Four years ago, when I start uploading stock photos, I upgraded my Panasonic bridge camera to a dslr, special for this kind of photography. I would not believe that, four years later, I have one photo made with a phone, in assignment! I am very happy, but also a little worried... More

  • Dreamstime goes mobile

    by Costa007 | 5th of November, 2012

    Despite our diversity, most of us have a lot in common. I'll only close in on two aspects: we love mobile phones and we love the Internet. We also like sharing our experiences and see other people doing that as well. That's Social Media. The image in Social media puts the... More
  • Bees!

    by Toynutz | 23rd of October, 2012

    Whether they generate fear or fascination, bees are crucial to the survival of everything. Without their function as pollinators, plants would not propagate, and we would not have fruits and vegetables - or anything else, for that matter - to eat! Here are a few bee photos... More
