    by Vcarmstrong | 24th of July, 2013

    This Editorial image has now been sold 2x - today we made 42 cents. I am very thankful that my husband and adult son are doing the scanning while I do all the labeling. Husband and I were using slide film for 15 years so we have lots of slides to scan. More

    by Hotmidhun | 11th of October, 2011

    Hi... After a 'not so great' September, there is one good reason I can say cheers right now.. I got my first Level 2 image. It was tough guessing which one would make it to Level 2 first as the gap was nil till the former touched 5 downloads. More

    by Marugod83 | 19th of July, 2011

    Finally, I've managed to pass the 100 photos barrier on DT and I'm very happy to announce it. :)) It's true, for many of us it's may seems hilarious bragging with this number, but for me it's means a lot. I'm a greenhorn in photografy, but I feel that I've made some progress... More
