How to boost your earnings by 10 percent

posted on 21st of august, 2007

Did you know that if you have your own site and you display your images there, you can point them to your image details page on Dreamstime and earn 60% from the sales you make this way or even 70% if you are an exclusive??

How you can do that:
1. Build your own site (or go with a web platform) and join our Referral Program.
2. Display watermarked thumbnails of your images
3. Point the ones that you have on Dreamstime using their referral link. You can also add a "Download" button under the image.

You can find the referral link under the watermaked image, on the image detail page:
e.g. Image details page
scroll down for "Referral Link&#...

thank you

Thanks for the tips! I think putting your (watermarked) work out there is very important to begin with anyways. There are also other ways that can lead people to your photos for more sales, such as Pintrest and Twitter. Although not everyone loves these social media tools, they still are important.

3,000,000 submissions

posted on 28th of august, 2007

Each image should have its 15 seconds of blog fame (and its 10 years of stock value ;) ) so here it is, submission with number 3,000,000 on Dreamstime. Passed unnoticed and quietly. A great stock btw that should also give you more hints about the surprize ;)

Why would you want us to send on a whale hunt or to an aquarium?

...or the prize is actually the photograph itself. DT are not that cheap, though!

A paid vacation at New Zealand or Alaska. Those are the only two places I know we can swim with whales.

Mb versus MP - when size really matters

posted on 31st of august, 2007

The common standard of the traditional stock photography industry is the size in megabytes (MB). The value of an image in MB sounds more appealing to the customer. Nothing more tricky than that!

The common standard for (educated) designers is the size in pixels (MP) that leads to discussions about dpi, ppi etc. It is this size that tells them how large an image can be printed.

The traditional industry uses this parameter as a trick. Requiring photographers to upsample their work (enlarging image size with a software) without any concerns about the final image (which usually ends up fuzzy and blurry) is simply wrong. Because not all images can be upsampled properly and the designer can do that easily.

The size in Mb ends up very high taking huge amounts of storage and upload/...

A tad naive, Fleyeing. Upsizing is compulsory to meet minimum size criteria on many traditional sites. What matters is the final subjective quality.

About me

More than 15 years ago, I've started my own revolution in design and photography. It was a bet I made with myself to see if passion can become a way of life. It has for me. Dreamstime is one of the world's leaders in stock photography, although it has started with an obsolete, now out-of-date digital camera and my modest collection of photos. But I pursued my dream and now Dreamstime, apart from being an agency and a business, is the largest gathering place for passionate photographers and designers. I like to think that we're not offering photographers just a way to earn money out of their... [Read more]
