  • How did you do with DT changes?

    by Egomezta | 1st of June, 2012

    A month ago DT changed the levels of the prices per image, here it is the link where you can see these changes: Levels Update Now it is easier for our images to reach levels, for example before for a level 4 an image needed 25 sales, now an image only needs 10 sales. That... More

  • Sales trends

    by Zenonk | 29th of May, 2012

    well I have read about how sales are going up and down and how you should grow your portfolio to make it more stable and that it is seasonal for some people. We all probably know that and should acknowledge it, but I had a best month ever in April and this month is going... More

  • 2 years later...

    by Lauriey | 16th of May, 2012

    Exactly two years from the day I joined here I've hit a milestone... my 5th time cashing out! When I joined, I was nervous. I took it slow and tried to pick the best of my images only to submit. I was nervous, but it did lead to a high acceptance ratio! It's a good... More

    I'll make this my shortest blog ever. I really just wanted to commemorate that in just over 24 hours I hit a new PB of 140 credits worth of sales plus 7 sub sales bumping those images up the level system. If only every day was like this it would be a Dreamstime :-) Making... More
  • Those Elusive Sales...

    by Racheld32 | 9th of May, 2012

    So I have been uploading pictures to my portfolio, and in the last month and a half of uploading, I am up to 17 pictures, which is decent for a VERY part time photographer. I have still not had any sales which is disappointing, but not unexpected for a newbie with a small... More
  • 300$

    by Ewamewa2 | 8th of May, 2012

    After almost 2 years my total revenue crossed 300$. I totally agree with sellers saying that the more pictures, the more earnings. Collecting the first 100 $ took me a year, the next 200$ less than half a year each. It is not much, but so far I have uploaded 244 photos,... More
  • Portfolio Milestone - 1,000 Images

    by Peanutroaster | 1st of May, 2012

    I just reached 1,000 images in my portfolio after ten months after discovering and deciding I should try this micro-stock thing. I must admit two things. 1. I didn't think I'd reach this point this soon. Who could imagine there were 1.000 things to photograph? 2. I thought... More

  • Milestone 100 sales!

    by Vcarmstrong | 19th of April, 2012

    Many people in the Dreamstime community repeat the wisdom "Keep uploading, the sale will come!". It really is true, slowly but steadily I see my sales increasing and as I continue to learn and try to produce more concept photos I expect the sales will continue to grow... More
  • New image sales

    by Montylola | 16th of April, 2012

    I have to share this with you all, I have been uploading images on a more regular basis lately and to my surprise some have been downloaded virtually instantly and best of all these are not subscription downloads but credit purchases. This has certainly rekindled my desire... More

    by Yellowind | 31st of March, 2012

    Hi, How was your month? Mine had 23 sales, though most of them were subscriptions, so had not got plenty of gold :) This month was lucky for uploading more to me, because of a few photo sessions with models. And the acceptance ratio has grown a bit. Well waiting for... More

    by Androniques | 27th of March, 2012

    Hi Dreamers! I do not tend to shout about my so-called "milestones", because I do feel and know too well that I am not particularly fast in getting sales. But today (already safe to say yesterday)... err... "words don't come easy to me" It's either the wind changed and... More
