    by Ellenboughn | 19th of September, 2007

  • My silly grudge against DT

    by Robinstockphotos | 11th of July, 2013

    As a new contributor here, when I was in the first 50 uploads on DT, I was uploading stuff I should not have. I had always considered a beautiful red rose photo I had shot as my best ever shot. I uploaded among the very first uploads only to find it rejected. Guess the reason?... More

  • New News or Old News in DT?!

    by Elianehaykal | 18th of February, 2012

    So, did you know that if you click on the tilte of a photo, it will let you find similar photos based on the title? Is it public knowledge or did I just discover yet another thing in DT? I can't decide whether it's better (with examples): a- for the title to be so specific... More
  • Strawberry season...

    by Llareggub | 19th of May, 2011

    It is a fun and glorious time of year for me, our first crop of the year is coming into fruition and we are over run with strawberries. I tend to take the approach of not checking the DT catalogue to see if what I am already photographing exists already and just try... More
  • Opening ANOTHER but friendly blog about similars

    by Billdayone | 6th of April, 2011

    I´d like to investigate with the user community, the contributor community and the admininistrative community, the ideas / confusion that surround the concept of similars. I can only reflect on my own confusion, as a creator on concepts and images, at the ambiguity that... More
  • not very similar in their similarity?!

    by Icefields | 22nd of March, 2011

    Just my two cents in the whole similarity discussion: not a proposal, just a reflection about it and some possible practical ways out of it. It's just that lately I noticed 2 batches of similar images can be very different regarding their similarity ;-) The hardest thing... More

  • Similar images refused... good!

    by Arielmartin | 12th of December, 2009

    A while ago I had one of two images refused because they were two shots of the same subject with just small change in the angle of the shot. I was dissappointed, even angry! Those two images had been accepted everywhere else... how could that be! Now, a short time... More
  • Similar images - how to upload and how much is too much

    by Achilles | 2nd of September, 2009

    Very often, good images are refused based on similarity issues. Contributors submit technically perfect (and usually sellable) images and get frustrated when they are refused. Imagine a boy laughing photographed. One image should be enough, not ten of them.... More

  • The Similar Categories Option Is Gone? PLEASE Bring it back.

    by Arenacreative | 24th of March, 2009

    Today I just noticed that in the unfinished files area there is no more option to choose from previously used categories. It is still available after you click on an image, but that drop down list only shows the last 10. I always found it easier to select multiple images... More
