  • Contributors shape the market!

    by Mani33 | 24th of November, 2013

    I'm writing this blog because I believe there is wave of strange behavior from some contributors that is affecting the Microstocks Market in a way or another. This concerns everyone, but specially non exclusive photographers or those who might think of being non exclusives... More

    by Atahack | 6th of May, 2011

    I've been registered to dreamstime since 2007, but I've started uploading last month. I thought it shouldn't take too long to earn a dollar, but I was wrong. It took a whole month. Now I wonder, should I continue with stock photography? How many photos are enough to earn... More
  • Custom Cars

    by Swelsh1 | 28th of October, 2010

    I recently went to a custom car and rockabilly event. I took my camera to try and get a few photos to upload here as I thought it would be a great opportunity even if they are to be sold as editorial. I tried uploading a few but only got one approved after resubmitting,... More
  • It's a Rough Road at first!

    by Jurphotography | 1st of September, 2010

    Geeeeezzzzz... Ok So has been a rough road here for me at dreamstime. Some really harsh rejections from the admin peeps. A super low approval rating, not many downloads, and a huge reality check. All of witch have contributed to my drive to get better and better! For... More

  • Edging my way to 100

    by Danienel | 9th of February, 2010

    For someone who shoots as much as me, it is ironic that I haven't got 100 files up at Dreamstime yet, but do not fear. I have made a concerted effort to get 100 this week. In fact more than enough are waiting in cue to get me there. But here is my latest upload. Lot's more... 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
  • 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

    by Alexhor | 29th of January, 2008

    Here is my first image accepted. Wow! For anyone who try to get involved in micro-stock photography, I can say that Dreamstime is not the fastest one. It takes forever to get your images reviewed. :) But... lets look at it from the bright side. The reviewing process... More
