  • Would you actually give money for your images?

    by Petarneychev | 27th of July, 2009

    From an image editor's (generalized) stand point there is three categories of images we deal with: good, average, and such that simply leave you wondering. In spite of the (by now countless?) microstock tutorials, blogs, forums, FAQs and so on, there still seems to be... More
  • Text into images is not always that good

    by Saniphoto | 27th of July, 2009

    A new post in my blog is dedicated to the theme of text into photos or illustrations. I found out that the English words, despite being absolutely the most accepted worldwide and also the most known, not necessarily are the best way to make your images more successful.... More

  • Getting the right direction

    by Alexhor | 2nd of June, 2009

    My learning about photography is still in baby phase. Comparing accepted and rejected images i get the clue. I just can not do the right image which will satisfy me (at the first place). To fill the gap I recently started to play with Swift 3D, designing cute little characters... More
  • Continuity

    by Alexhor | 29th of May, 2009

    Let me share some thoughts with you. I found myself trapped in waiting through the whole process from shooting to sell, to see the results, so I can analyze if I am doing it right. Now I see it kind of wrong. I guess it may begin this way but you need a learning curve an... More

  • Looking from buyers side of the table

    by Alexhor | 26th of May, 2009

    Today I was thinking about stock photography buyers. Is this important? It must be, it affects sales. That leads to the point that at stock agency every contributor must think in advance. My first bunch of images was mostly rejected. I wasn't thinking anything. It was... More

  • Imaging the keywords

    by Alexhor | 18th of May, 2009

    I don't know if anyone covered that subject but here is my few cents. In stock photography we are familiar with the term "keywording the images". Pretty hard task to do. Sometimes even hard to figure ten descent keywords. With time we become skilled, we learn how to use synonyms,... More

    by Bradcalkins | 28th of April, 2009

    Spring is in the air, and we're starting to see some buds forming. I had to bring them inside for this shot to get away from the snow we are still having! Spring is a good time for my one year DT anniversary. I've definitely met or exceeded where I thought I would be a... More

  • Exclusive sales

    by Aginger | 24th of April, 2009

    Today's suprise is two new sales from my exclusive images - thank you!: In my opinion, exclusivity is not the best way on any stock sites. Maybe some of you will disagree, but I think I'm not good enough for exclusivity. :) However, the option in Dreamstime that... More
