  • Six More Up, Six Down!

    by Rayzer1 | 28th of October, 2014

    I opened my iPad this morning to find that I had six more photos approved! Looking further, I realized that six were also refused. The refusals don't bother me, because I really appreciated the feedback. I didn't really expect to get as much helpful advice from the refused... More
  • Isolated yes, isolated no

    by Nero67 | 28th of July, 2011

    Hello friends! I am writing this blog in hopes of being useful. Surely many of you have read a recent blog written by a dreamstime's admin. It is about "isolated" word in stock language. As it has already happened to the word "vector" for illustrations, today it happens for... More
  • Isolated in Stock Language

    by Dudau | 27th of July, 2011

    I'm not a big fan of photographing isolated objects, but from my experience as a buyer for three years, I feel pretty qualified for writing on this subject. So here it is: "Isolated" in Microstock Language means plain, shadowless, easy to remove background. So, when you'... More
  • Similar images refused... good!

    by Arielmartin | 12th of December, 2009

    A while ago I had one of two images refused because they were two shots of the same subject with just small change in the angle of the shot. I was dissappointed, even angry! Those two images had been accepted everywhere else... how could that be! Now, a short time... More
  • Olympic Dreams

    by Dnavarrojr | 7th of August, 2008

    When I was growing up I desperately wanted to be in the Olympics. In high school I was a state wrestling champion, but when I got into college, I realized the difference between high school level sports and the upper eschelon. So, now my Olympic Dreams rest on the hopes... More
  • Avoiding Refusals – Part II Rejections that could be fixed:

    by Bchecjon | 5th of August, 2008

    I have started a series that I hope will help newcomers, and perhaps even give a little different perspective to seasoned vets in avoiding refusals. Due to the volume of submissions, I am sure that you have sat and waited for many days for your images to be reviewed, only... More
  • Avoiding refusals - My musings of the common ones

    by Bchecjon | 4th of August, 2008

    I am new to DT, and the stock world in general, but am sure that in my trial and error to have images selected and posted I have received just about every reason for refusal that there is. I understand and am not bitter about images that don't get selected. I know that all... More
  • Some new Designs

    by Rebeccaosborn | 12th of May, 2008

    So lately I have been having quite a few of my photo works refused.. which when I actually look back over the photos, I can see why.. poor lighting.. out of focus etc.. So I thought I would try my hand at designs.. and what do you know.. they are all getting approved!... More
  • Editors have feelings too, you know?

    by Achilles | 10th of July, 2007

    Tolstoi once said that everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. I try to remind myself this quote daily, especially when confronted with criticism. Everybody wants to go to heaven, no one wants to die. The most common question received... More
