  • For Nikon D800 users

    by Vilaimages | 10th of March, 2014

    Hello everybody, I just wanted to share an experience I had with DT that took me a while to figure out. I have been uploading RAW files taken with a Nikon D300 as additional format with every submission with no problems. It was after I started using a Nikon D800 with the... More
  • And the 2014 Word of the Year is .....

    by Karenfoleyphotography | 2nd of January, 2014

    I'm a list maker. It's what I do. It's how I keep myself organized. I'm such an extreme list maker that my husband jokes that I need to keep lists of all the lists that I keep! Sometimes I write things on a list, just so I can cross them back... More
  • Blank Page

    by Karenfoleyphotography | 31st of December, 2012

    Today is the first day of the rest of ….. What does a New Year mean to you? Is it a time of Reflection or Projection? Is it all about changing bad behaviors from previous years? Or is it a time for overcoming the obstacles... More
  • 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
  • New year and open possibilites

    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
  • 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
  • Mini Review: Canon 7D for stock

    by Bradcalkins | 11th of March, 2011

    I've owned and shot with a Canon 40D for a while now, and have been very happy with it. For my personal use it is more than adequate as well. I did feel that 10MP was starting to get dated, especially when cropped - and I figured if I was going to produce 500 photos a year... More
  • Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.

    by Markandrewphotography | 27th of December, 2010

    It's that time between Christmas and New Year when people start to think about making their New Year resolutions, often focussed on dieting and/or stopping smoking. I'm no exception to making them myself, likewise breaking them! My New Year resolutions are going to... More
  • This, That, or The Other

    by Williamardrey | 17th of September, 2010

    I have decided to upgrade my basic equipment by Christmas, but don't know exactly what to do. I currently use an Olympus E-510 DSLR and I love the kinds of pictures it takes. However, the resolution of a lot of the pictures is not up to snuff when compared to some of the... More

  • An Unexpected Model

    by Cmarshall717 | 14th of January, 2009

    Very unique photo opportunities can present themselves at some of the most unexpected times. I was at the CAP 089th Squadron (Civil Air Patrol) to photograph their move into a new facility at MacDill AFB in Tampa, FL. They were moving into a place that had a lot of stored... More

  • Higher payments for extra-high resolution images?

    by Timehacker | 3rd of March, 2008

    I was just wondering why does the payment scheme ends at 8 Megapixels? It's nice that pricing for downloads depends on image resolution. But why does the scheme end at 8 MP? My opinion is that this pricing scheme (up to 8 MP) was fine some time ago, when the best digital... More

    NOTICE : The fact remains that better the camera, the more approval ratio you have and more sales as well, but I am writing this blog from my experience and analysis. When I hit the stock concept on google, it wasn’t microstock. It was about RM (Rights Managed) Stock... More
  • Mb versus MP - when size really matters

    by Achilles | 31st of August, 2007

    The common standard of the traditional stock photography industry is the size in megabytes (MB). The value of an image in MB sounds more appealing to the customer. Nothing more tricky than that! The common standard for (educated) designers is the size in pixels (MP) that... More
