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.
Well even I dont mind those 30 cents sale, the most important thing is that someone is downloading our images & artworks, that means a lot to me. unlike other stockphoto site this one is truly amazing. no politics played by the admin staff. I had very bad experiance with some other where they play a very big politics. Atleast Dreamstime is out of all this. Thats the one main reason i love dreamstime, apart from the many others.
My last payout paid for an emergency trip to the veterinary office for an ill uromastyx (very cute, chubby brown lizard). I may not be making a fortune with stock, but it pays for those unexpected things. :) PS: Just give me time for the fortune thing. ;)
