  • Milestone - First month with over 10$ in revenue

    by Ntrifunovic | 9th of April, 2013

    It's only 9th April and I've earned over 10$ this month. This is the first time ever I've earned over 10$ in a month and it makes me so happy :) Thank you DT :) I believe it has something to do with change in pricing model, because my RPD is much higher now. I may... More
  • 3 years with DT (some stats)

    by Igordabari | 29th of November, 2012

    Yesterday 3 years passed since my registration on DT. I have got some stats that could be of interest for others, so let me share some of my figures with you. So, after 1st year I had 216 images online, 92 sales and revenue of $$160. For my second year I uploaded 257 images... More
  • The "sub season" is finally over

    by Jerryway | 8th of November, 2011

    "Sub season" is a new term I invented just for microstock. Think about the rainy season - it sucks, and you get a lot of rain day after day when it comes. The "sub season" is just like that - it comes when you get a lot of sub. sales (but few, or no credit sale), day after... More
  • My first $500

    It has been a little over 4 months since I jumped into microstock business with DT. Today I am happy to announce that I just made my first $500 with 343 sales. Alone with the $500 revenue, there are a couple of other milestones achieved recently: 1) 500+ images online;... More
  • Exclusivity, another look at a popular subject

    by Visceralimage | 4th of January, 2011

    A common question on the Dreamstime forums concerns Exclusivity; many of us have struggled with the decision to become exclusive or to spread our efforts over different RF (royalty free) and RM (rights managed) agencies. I joined the DT community February 2010; I also... More
  • My milestone: 2000 images available at Dreamstime (+ some statistics)

    by Stylephotographs | 28th of June, 2010

    Today I made it: I got over 2000 files accepted at Dreamstime. The acceptance ratio was 88.6%, which is fair enough. It took me about two years to reach that goal. In the meantime I received over 2200 sales (that means 1.13 DL/image), so thanks to all the buyers for... More
  • 1000th Download

    by Espion | 19th of November, 2008

    Took me 15 months to attain it, with a revenue of $932.54, or an RPD of $0.93. Total image online is 1520 and thus an RPI of $0.61. I think I am definitely NOT a microstock superstar. I like to think I am typical, but maybe I am less. Anyone care to share? :-... More
