    by Apers | 2nd of January, 2016

    At the turn of the year it is nice to have a look at the sales of last year. I sold 85 pictures, again for me a substantial increase. I think it has a lot to do with my trips to China and Peru. The breakdown over the various categories shows that: Cityscape 32%... More

  • 9 beautiful sales in one night

    by Adammeadows12 | 18th of December, 2015

    Today I am very exited to announce that I had 9 total sales. It seemed to me that sales had gone to a halt and that it wasn't worth waiting. The only thing you can do is upload, cross your fingers and sit back and wait.  Then suddenly I heard my account notifications... More
  • 100 sales

    by Dubessonego | 10th of December, 2015

    It took me some time and a lot of patience. For a while, I just stop uploading pictures and wait. The sales were not that good. In the last weeks, though, it soared. And a lot. Most of it, pictures of Colombia. I just reached 100 sales. This mark gave me hope and incentive... More
  • Four sales in as many days

    by Beng32 | 10th of December, 2015

    I haven't been very active on this site for the last couple of months. This is definitely not down to lack of interest or motivation, it's just that real-life had gotten the way for a while. It has given me time to take a step back and re-evaluated the way I work as a photographer.... More

  • Past few years on Dreamstime

    by Gofer | 19th of November, 2015

    The last few years on Dreamstime have been great and sales have been good too, especially since the royal wedding of Kate and William which really motivated me to take more editorial photos. I can remember just having the shear luck of the couple waving in my direction while... More

  • Up and away, keys to success on Dreamstime.

    by Clewisleake | 3rd of November, 2015

    Been on Dreamstime a few years now and I can say there's no magic formula to selling images, in other words sales don't explode by reaching any certain approval rating or having a certain amount of images in your portfolio, I believe that the 80% approval rating sales kicker... More
