  • Has anyone successfully SOLD THE RIGHTS using SR-EL?

    by Studioceja | 10th of March, 2008

    150 and counting, I think I'm finally on a roll! As a college student I find myself exploring my options. I have been traveling around quite a bit and taking photos everywhere I go. I have been into photography since grade school, now I am exploring microstock. I opened... More

    I research the each DT category to find photos/illustration with largest number of downloads. You should read this blog with images, so see this blog. In category Abstract the best one is downloaded 578 times it is red velvet theatre curtains more like a background to potential... More
  • Collages

    by Timehacker | 3rd of March, 2008

    I use to travel a lot, so I have a lot of image collections from various cities, many of them already online at Dreamstime. I was wandering if someone has some experience with collages. Is it worth it to take several photos, let's say 4 images of Washington landmarks or... More
  • lately its been good going.....

    by Kaphoto | 14th of February, 2008

    its good to see your images being downloaded on daily basis, It is encouraging, and surely everybody who is like me, slow in uploading soon will realise, that if they dont upload images, you are loosing on those $ you would have made, I got this idea to get help, hire a person... More
  • About Full Exclusivity

    by Hakansenturk2005 | 12th of January, 2008

    I wonder that if a photographer can he/she sell her photos in another stock photography agency's website. I wonder that because i see the same images and same users in other sites and they sell the same images. Are those photographers full exclusive ? What does full exclusivity... More
  • This photo selling stuff is alright!

    by Leetorrens | 12th of January, 2008

    While the new year is fresh and it still feels weird to write 2008 instead of 2007, my partner and I have come to the conclusion that selling photos is one of the easier ways we earn money. Why? 1. No customer service! While I love my design clients, they all require after-... More
  • music by stock

    by Dnf-style | 18th of December, 2007

    Did you see the newest trend being set by one of the first and biggest stocks around (can't mention name here). They are selling licensed music. How far will it go? See Article
  • Knowledge is power

    by Lexschmidt | 10th of December, 2007

    Try to use the technique the camera gives you. But don't forget to play. Everybody is taking shots from its own perspective. This makes a great diversity of pictures about one single item. After a few years expanding my hobby, i'm still learning and starting a course... More
  • never jpeg again

    by Walkingsinger | 29th of November, 2007

    I'm a newbie,but I hope the follows helpful.I must say that i'd rather camera jpeg before,simply because it's easy to check the image or overview.Maybe it is the experience of using dc that contribute to this habit. Usually i adjust a pic with photoshop,but i found it... More
  • Going Exclusive?

    by Tnotn | 12th of November, 2007

    I am trying to decide if I should go Exclusive or stay 'out' and continue to sell with a number of different site. Currently I have the option to go exclusive with two different site and I have been weighting the decision; Is it better to be 'in' with one site or 'out'... More
  • Making Hot Pictures

    by Espion | 23rd of October, 2007

    No, no I don't mean making a sure commercial hit. I was referring to making still life pictures of Habanero chilies. I realised no two chilies are the same. It is almost like photographing people, where you try to eke out the essence, or part thereof, that is the... More
  • Recording Diamonds and Rust

    by Syncsun | 10th of October, 2007

    As i like this song, i want to use my camera to record the diamonds & rust in my life. See Article
  • Any Picture Can Sell

    by Espion | 10th of October, 2007

    I've come to think this is so. No matter how many times a thing have been shot - even to its death literally :-) - there can always be something different in each, from all the millions of pictures of the same thing. For example, two oranges. You can isolate them,... More
  • First few sales

    by Pirate59 | 8th of October, 2007

    Ive been here for about a month now, and am really glad to announce that i have had some sales =) I basically believe that everyone loves their own photos and thinks they should sell. Its hard not to be biased towards yourself. But when someone else actually hands over... More
  • Looking for pictures that sell...

    by Torie508 | 3rd of October, 2007

    I was looking through the different pictures here on dreamstime the other day, and got to thinking... I like taking pics of sunsets, but mine that are online just are not selling. So I decided to look at some that are. I put sunset in the search box and checked only the levels... More
  • Metaphor

    by Espion | 26th of September, 2007

    I like this image for its metaphoric representation of life, and the contrast between what is living and what is dead. The white flower with its tenacious tendrils is that of a vine growing wild and untended. And the rusting iron rods are part of an abandoned gate to... More
  • Changing color to sell pics 3...

    by Torie508 | 19th of September, 2007

    You can also change a picture from color to a black and white image, or even sepia color. This often makes some pictures more dramatic, than the color versions, and might be more sellable. See Article

    by Torie508 | 19th of September, 2007

    Here is another example of how I used photoshop to change the color of a picture to make it more interesting. See Article
  • Changing color to sell more pics...

    by Torie508 | 19th of September, 2007

    I took a picture of the mini blinds hanging in my office the other day. They were a very plain ivory color and it didn't really look like a picture that would sell. So, I went into photoshop and changed the color of them several times. The blue one has sold 2 copies so far.... More
