  • Does Size Matter?

    by Steveacer | 2nd of November, 2014

    Is there an ideal size for Dreamstime? I am never quite sure whether to shoot all of my photos at full size 6016/5637px Or 4500/3000px or even take at full size and then reduce, the reason being that when I have tried a few different searches on DT the smaller photos seem... More
  • Why don't increase the level of subscription?

    by Andrews71 | 21st of September, 2013

    I think that the price of selling in DT should be reviewed by management. For example, my last 20 picture sold just 4 are with credits and 16 (!!) are with subscriptions at 0.42$ each I can comprehend that we earn on volume and not on the single picture sold, but I... More
  • Ideal image size

    by Vilaimages | 27th of April, 2013

    Hello everybody, I'm sure this must have been discussed before in this Forum, but I could not find the answer I am looking for. I began processing my photos in a different way and as a final result, I end up with a bigger file (more resolution). After Dreamstime's resizing... More
  • Does size matter?

    by Peanutroaster | 1st of August, 2012

    They say size doesn't matter. It's all in the technique. And while I'd hate to complain about a sale there are two size issues that irk me. Let me know if you agree, disagree, never thought about it or if I'm just being irked over nothing. Size Irk #1: Sub + Max... More
  • size matters ?

    by Egonzitter | 9th of April, 2012

    I use a sony a-700 with 12,2 megapixels at the moment.Is it an advantage to have more megapixels (bigger format / full frame) or perhaps a disadvantage if you have pictures twice as big for having better sales ? See Article
  • Adding a sense of scale

    by Tamarabauer | 20th of February, 2012

    I love to shoot landscapes - I'm fortunate in that I currently live in a very scenic Australian State where landscape photography is a must. At times, it's difficult to convey a sense of scale with an image - I know the depth and breadth and height because I can see it... More
  • Clothing sizes - A good idea?

    by Mariaam | 26th of November, 2011

    I had the idea to draw an illustration with all clothing sizes that are available. Starting at xsmall and going to xxlarge. I draw t-shirts and then I made a colorful set of the sizes. I used strong and harmonic colours as you can see in the picture. My pic was accepted... More
  • Mind the size

    by Grisho | 10th of May, 2011

    I just wanted to share a personal observation with the rest of the contributors. Maybe a lot of you are already aware of this but I guess some of you are not. So, it's about the maximum size we should save our images/illustrations. The thing is that if you upload images with... More
  • Dreamstime has larger comp images

    by Flowerpistol | 20th of January, 2011

    I am a contributor as well as a customer. One of the benefits of using Dreamstime is the nice, large comp images they provide. It is very helpful. As a graphic designer, I frequently download comp images to see if they will work in my layout before I make a purchase.... More
  • 3D Renders - When is it big enough?

    by Avion49 | 21st of August, 2010

    As 3D artists, the size of the render we submit is totally up to us. All we have to do is to be willing to "put up" with tying our computers up while the image renders. This can take anywhere from mere minutes (the Marlin only took 15 mins) to hours (like this room!)... More
  • 888 images online ! I am happy. How big is your portfolio?

    by Fotodesignjegg | 11th of March, 2010

    Hi all DT photographers. I started at Dreamstime in April 2009 and today I have 888 images online. The figure itself is crazy and forced me to make the first blog entry. This is my image 888. I am sure that at the end of April I will have 1.000 images online,... More

  • Megapixels tell a difference

    by Saniphoto | 5th of February, 2009

    Apart from obvious lack of experience and technical ability, there may be another reason why beginners usually have lower RPI (return per image): camera file size. (return per image for who doesn't know yet, is total sales amount divided by the number of images you have... More
  • Diffraction Limited?

    by Bradcalkins | 20th of November, 2008

    I've been looking into a new body and have decided not to go with the latest Canon 50D. I'm turned off by the high file size, but also because we seem to be getting into territory where more megapixels are making some things worse. While I haven't tried either the 50D or... More

  • The 1st extralarge size picture has been downloaded

    by Bigjiang | 1st of November, 2008

    This picture is one of my favorite in the meeting room theme, while what makes me very excited is that today it's been downloaded as extralarge size! I'm wondering where it is being used but it's hard to know:( anyway, I'm very pleased to see it's useful for others. More
  • RHETORIC and IMAGING - Identity

    by Afagundes | 25th of October, 2008

    Rhetoric is the the art of using communication in an effective and persuasive manner to influence the thoughts and actions of others. Its heavily used with images in advertising, so I thought it would be nice to share with you this information on this series of blogs. This... More
  • Working with Full Figure Models

    by Notebook | 8th of September, 2008

    Have you ever tried to make an effective, great, full-body shot for a plus size model? A-ha... not such an easy task! Logic of working with full body shots of plus size models is quite different, and challenging. While head shots and half-body shots are essentially the same... More

    Please note that it is unacceptable to upsize photos you submit to Dreamstime. This information is for your personal use. Perhaps you need to upsize a photo to let’s say: 48mb. The simplest and easiest way to upsize is to read my blog and get the Photoshop plug-in... More
