  • Going Green.

    by Vincentho | 5th of October, 2012

    Green is the color and I'm now one of them!(they said it in the email) .In this case the 3 R's are review, respond, rewards). After a year plus on DT, I have finally come to a conclusion to be an exclusive illustrator, and what makes me decide on it- the 3 R's. I... More
  • Photoshop Lightroom 4

    by Fishwater | 5th of September, 2012

    First, let me explain my experience with post-processing to give you an idea of my skill level. I began with Photoshop 3 with a little instruction from a colleague and upgraded to Photoshop 4 when I had the opportunity a little later on. In time, I felt Photoshop was just... More
  • Waiting for Sales

    by Peanutroaster | 16th of August, 2012

    One of the mistakes newbies make (I know because I was once one myself), is thinking that they have the greatest stock photograph ever, upload it, sit back and wait for the sales to pour in. Its like waiting for the phone to ring to tell you that you've won a contest.... More
  • Let's go to the beach....

    by Miraclemoments | 12th of August, 2012

    Living at the coast has its advantages. Lovely coastal sunrises and sunsets. The summer months with lots of activity and holiday makers in the area. Winter of course has less advantages unless you are fortunate to have the mild winters that a town like Mossel Bay, South... More
  • Mont Blanc, a provocation that deserves to be lived

    by Photodesign | 21st of July, 2012

    Written by Simina Cernat (member of Satwa Guna 2012 - Unknow Vietnam project) The idea of climbing Mont Blanc came in my mind last year, in Ladakh. I was on a pass over 5000 meters and I was thinking…now we are on a higher altitude than if we were on Mont Blanc. I was... More
  • Eternal Italy (Unknown Vietnam 2012- Satwa Guna project)

    by Photodesign | 19th of July, 2012

    Written by Simina Cernat (member of Satwa Guna 2012 - Unknow Vietnam project) We entered Italy…a child near me whispered, with a sad voice: ciao Italy. I asked him if he lives in Italy and he answered no. Do you like Italy? No. I was looking on the endless highway... More
  • FREE Firmware update for Canon EOS 7D comes to the US

    by Chanevy | 18th of July, 2012

    I came across this information accidentally, and wanted to be sure that all you EOS 7D photogs are aware of the update coming out the beginning of August. It sounds great and will cause me to love my 7D even more. First, it is FREE. And, if it's free, it's for me.... More
  • Funny moments

    by Bradcalkins | 13th of July, 2012

    Sometimes there are moments in your life (especially with kids) where you are just glad you were ready with your camera! See Article
  • Slowly walking and watching

    by Rosariomanzo | 13th of July, 2012

    Hi all, first blog post for me here. As an architect, I tend to walk slow in new places I visit, trying to capture how life flows in that place and looking at all those small details that a nice genuine environment has to offer. My wife is an architect, too, so I'm lucky... More
  • The peaceful and almost religious part of photography

    by Miraclemoments | 8th of July, 2012

    Most people that enjoy their landscape photography will be able to relate to what I am blogging. I enjoy doing seascape photography and find the smell of the ocean, the rushing water and sealife to be an almost religious experience. Heading down to the beach and... More
  • setting goals

    by Phoenixci | 8th of July, 2012

    Who would have believed a few months ago that I, a photographer without any training, would have reached over 100 photos accepted. The start of the journey was hard and after many refusals I wondered, (as many others have I am sure) if this was for me. I decided to take every... More
  • Western Thatching Ants (Formica obscuripes)

    by Toynutz | 5th of July, 2012

    On Dreamstime, there are 1456 images associated with ants. Grotesque and creepy as they may be perceived by some humans, ants are industrious and cooperative, each apparently knowing their role in maintaining the health of their community, something we humans could stand... More
  • Central Oregon Waterways

    by Toynutz | 4th of July, 2012

    Central Oregon is considered the semi-arid High Desert, but it is not without rivers. There are three major ones, the Metolius, Crooked, and Deschutes. They all merge into the Deschutes at Lake Billy Chinook, a huge reservoir created by the construction of Round Butte hydrolelectric... More
  • Pending images

    by Ewamewa2 | 3rd of July, 2012

    6 of may images have been pending since 19.06. That day I uploaded 1 more and it was accepted. So why the other have been pending for 2 weeks? Most of them are editorials taken in Sardinia. It is really frustrating. What is going on with DT? See Article
  • Satwa Guna project - Unknown VIETNAM 2012

    by Photodesign | 2nd of July, 2012

    Preparations almost finished The departure date approaches and we are in a hurry. We got out in time from the bohemian state in which we had lost ourselves to apply for the Vietnamese visa. We thought that we could apply online and in 2 days the visa would be ready. It... More
  • Extreme inspiration

    by Kimdeadman | 24th of June, 2012

    I recently went to a photography exhibition at the Metropoliatan Museum of Photography while on holiday in Tokyo. I found it by chance while filling in time between some other activities, but it turned out to be a big source of inspiration. Sometimes I look at other photographer'... More
  • Finding my way

    by Kimdeadman | 15th of June, 2012

    As I reach 24 accepted photos on Dreamstime I feel like I’ve climbed Mont Blanc. I set out with my little 350D a year or so ago and thought, ‘this will be easy; point, shoot, submit and perhaps earn a fortune.’ In reality I have faced raging storms (of frustration)... More
  • What do they want?

    by Thegreekphilosopher | 12th of June, 2012

    Hello I am very new here and I have been wandering what kind of photos sell and in general get accepted. From personal experience I'd rule out sunset photos. I would love to hear your most honest opinion. (i could not upload my rejected sunset photo,damn) More

  • Wadi Rum

    by Zsaadallah | 5th of June, 2012

    Finally, my new Wadi Rum collection accepted. A tip for all travelers, although wadi rum can be a very enchanting and a beautiful place, my advice would still be never go there in the summer. you'll melt in the sun. Best time to visit would be during the months of April... More
