  • Guess I'm blogging!

    by Mantonino | 11th of April, 2008

    I didn't even know DT had blogs - I'm such a noob considering I've been here forever! I joined the site in 2004 sometime and just got back "into" microstock. :) My goal in micro is clearly explained on my "real" blog at but just the title should... More
  • 100!!

    by Cleaper | 9th of April, 2008

    I'm really pleased today as I have reached 100 uploads - obviously there is so much more I want to achieve on Dreamstime (especially more downloads!!) but I feel that it is a milestone reached. I have learnt so much since joining two months ago, especially from the comments... More
  • Wedding Photography for Stock - another season approaching

    by Retina2020 | 29th of March, 2008

  • Polite or impolite

    by Cool79 | 17th of March, 2008

    My previous article about images looks pretty strange (in my opinion) inspirited me to do some research on stock. After a while here on DT this stock shows some very good but polite subjects, like business people, nature, abstract texture, background, simple objects.... More

    by Irisangel | 10th of March, 2008

  • Why Would I Want to Work in the Microstock Industry?

    by Cynthi | 10th of March, 2008

    Not only am I a Newbie to Dreamstime, but also to the micro-stock world. I have worked in the portrait photography industry for many years. I really thought about the question "Why would I want to work in the micro-stock industry?" I dove in on December 31, 2007. Here is... More
  • Starting with Microstock Photography

    by Hdanne | 7th of March, 2008

    For much of my life I had been a hobby photographer. Until mid of 2007 I was using old style analogue films with my Nikon D90X. But then we decided to visit the relatives of my wife in China. I thought, it is now high time to switch to digital photography. And I bought a... More
  • My first collection

    by Nightangel666 | 3rd of March, 2008

    I have decided to start a collection. First, I didn't know what it really was for. I mean, you just search what you want with the search box and that's it ! But no, truly, collections are really useful. You can concentrate a great amount of good images, those you like or... More
  • Why we love Dreamstime

    by Shuttlecock | 16th of February, 2008

    That extra pocket money that it provides is fantastic (although I do hate those cheap 0.30cts sales). Pushes me to learn and improve on photography. Taught me about vectors which I knew nothing about a year ago. Hopefully I see more sales here. More

  • An accidental journey into Microstock Photography

    by Rgebbiephoto | 15th of February, 2008

    My husband has been a photographer for as long as he can remember. I, also, loved to hold a camera, and have taken some pretty impressive landscapes, haven't we all? :D But this is his story, his introduction into the crazy world we call Microstock. Robert was getting... More
  • What is your stock photo workflow like?

    by Arenacreative | 13th of February, 2008

    I seem to enjoy creating images more than I do keywording in uploading....but as you all know, we need to do that in order to make sales. I have about 100 images sitting just waiting to be keyworded. How do you guys stay motivated? I work full time, so I only have maybe... More

  • What a difference!

    by Cleaper | 24th of January, 2008

    Hi there...I am a brand new Dreamstime member and it looks as if I have quite a bit to learn! It was interesting to see that the photos that are most liked by friends, family and Flickr members are the ones that are no good for stock photography and the photographs that... More
