  • Adobe Illustrator - Fighting Again With Pixels

    by Inspirationgame | 11th of November, 2013

    Hello Everyone: Long time no talk. To make a long story short, I have been inactive on Dreamstime for quite a while after the loss of my sweetheart in 2011. But life's worth living, and I am back with plenty of inspiration. As I wrote in my first article, I am new to illustration... More
  • Distorted pixels?

    by Robinstockphotos | 14th of January, 2013

    Don't be too happy about the title. I'm not going to tell you the exact process to get rid of it. Call it a trade secret reserved for the persistent guys? I'll tell you what they are exactly referring to - fix it yourself. (I'm soo mean?) I recently intentionally uploaded... More
  • Two Stock Tricks That Utilize Larger Megapixel Cameras

    by Wisconsinart | 6th of May, 2012

    We amateurs struggle to find time to work on stock, especially when you can upload only a small number of images every month. Every rejection hurts. Trying to grow the portfolio a handful of images at a time is a daunting task for making any real progress. I am the proud... More
  • size matters ?

    by Egonzitter | 9th of April, 2012

    I use a sony a-700 with 12,2 megapixels at the moment.Is it an advantage to have more megapixels (bigger format / full frame) or perhaps a disadvantage if you have pictures twice as big for having better sales ? See Article
  • resolution a big deal

    by Kjcimagery | 30th of March, 2012

    I have been very fortunate with my relatively small portfolio and I actually just passed the 50 upload mark. I am very curious to know and hear opinions about the resolution of images in general. The majority of my photos are 6.1 megapixels. Does this lower resolution... More
  • Listening to the left shoulder

    by Joezachs | 17th of May, 2011

    Last week I sauntered into the kitchen and found this big plate all piled up with mangoes which looked very pale. I asked wifey “Hey why so many mangoes and why are they looking pale ?” She said “its all sort of blanched” Me : “Blanched?” Wifey “ Well... More
  • Mind the size

    by Grisho | 10th of May, 2011

    I just wanted to share a personal observation with the rest of the contributors. Maybe a lot of you are already aware of this but I guess some of you are not. So, it's about the maximum size we should save our images/illustrations. The thing is that if you upload images with... More
  • Starting from Scratch

    by Inspirationgame | 26th of March, 2011

    I wonder how many of you are like me. I started submitting photos and illustrations to Dreamstime in October 2009 with no camera fine tuning nor illustration making experience whatsoever. To give you an idea, my first 200 photos were all rejected at once because of distorted... More
  • An easy way to remove stray pixels in Photoshop

    by Alistaircotton | 30th of January, 2011

    We all hate rejection. No matter how thick my skin gets I still hate getting images rejected by stock agencies. Sometimes though, it’s all for a good reason and something great comes out of the whole learning experience. Yesterday was one of those days. I’ve... More
  • Pixel mapping

    by Williamardrey | 22nd of September, 2010

    I was reading my news letter from Olympus Inc. the other day and I saw something that piqued my interest. There was an article about pixel mapping. The article stated that a person could improve the quality of their exposures by doing a simple maneuver using the menu function.... More
  • TIFF vs. JPG

    by Cristalloid | 15th of August, 2010

    Hi everyone! I am wondering about the difference between TIFF and JPG. We all load up JPGs to Dreamstime and the downloadable TIFFs were generated from these uploaded JPGs by Dreamstime. What I do not understand is how it comes that TIFFs have more pixels than the underlaying... More

  • My 50th approval

    by Antoinettew | 19th of July, 2009

    Today I reached my 50th submission. It took some time to find out what is wanted and what not but the number of my rejected photos went down and the number of approved photos went up in the last months. At first I did not understand why a photo was rejected: where I saw a... More
  • Pause, it's time for a bit of Illustrator

    by Andreeadobrescu | 6th of July, 2009

    Raster images are made up tiny solid color areas called pixels. Every pixel contains information about color and placement.The number of pixels determines the resolution of the image. A bitmap image of 600 pixels enlarged by 500% will have the same number of pixels but each... More
  • Megapixels tell a difference

    by Saniphoto | 5th of February, 2009

    Apart from obvious lack of experience and technical ability, there may be another reason why beginners usually have lower RPI (return per image): camera file size. (return per image for who doesn't know yet, is total sales amount divided by the number of images you have... More

    by Bradcalkins | 7th of January, 2009

    I got a Canon G10 over Christmas and it is definitely a great little camera. I was worried that the high megapixel count and small sensor would drop my approval rating compared to the DSLR I've been using up until now. After getting a first batch accepted, with no rejections... More

    Contributors often ask this question: "do the extra pixels matter?". Here are a few thoughts about it. What values most to us and the buyers is the content of your image. If the aesthetics are bad, it doesn't matter what your camera can do or how many MP it can produce.... More
