    by Ellenboughn | 15th of July, 2008

    Commuter patterns have changed dramatically over the past few months as individuals cut back on driving both to save gas money and to protect the environment just as other countries such as India and China begin a love affair with the automobile. Both of these events have... More
  • Mystery in the tall trees

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of August, 2007

    Dramatic images of trees are powerful symbols of growth, shelter, change and endurance. Trees as a metaphor are popular for many brands and services. Beyond commercial use, many people have a somewhat universal emotional connection to trees that goes beyond simple awe.... More
  • Snap! Not! Vacation Photos

    by Ellenboughn | 2nd of July, 2007

    Trying to pack too many photos into too little time can result in photos of everything but few, if any, terrific shots. To document your vacation as well as taking some great shots for Dreamstime, you need to plan ahead. It's not just about getting the best airfare and hotel... More

  • Image Adoption

    by Celiaak | 28th of August, 2014

    It is always a joy to know one of our forgoten images fallen in to level 0 threshold has been adopted (AKA sold). I don't mind if it is a credit sale or a subscription sale. I feel happy just to know someone took the time to find it and the image is good... More

  • Superfast DT!

    by Cheese365 | 23rd of January, 2014

    We all have to wait patiently for our images to be reviewed. I had just finished uploading and submitting my images for admin approval (or rejection) when I noticed the images had been given approximately 17 hours before reviewing. Great, excellent, I've never had such... More

  • Subscription sales

    by Fredbro | 1st of October, 2013

    Hello everyone, Today I sold my 21st picture and it was a subscription sale. That made me wonder if you guys ''attract'' as many subscription sales as I do. Indeed, 71% of all my sales are subscription ones. What about you all? And don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see... 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

    by Xixinxing | 30th of August, 2013
