Feature Request, Buy instantly through paypal

posted on 17th of november, 2008

A big hello to all the DT friends, and another very big one for the site admin and site feature specialist. I have one request, I don’t know if its an valid request or no: (Would like feedback from DT Users), Wouldn’t it be better if people can buy images and vectors without being a member of the site, I mean to say, anybody who visit the site can buy an image directly without buying credits, they click, its goes to any other payment options then using pre purchased credits. Why I'm suggesting is that, recently during my latest work as freelancer I suggested my clients to look for photos in DT and buy them, they were hesitant, no we don’t want to buy credit and buy image. What happens to my credit if I don’t ever require another image? was their reaction. Is there anyway a client can buy just...

There is such feature on the site. You can add the images in a lightbox and there is the option for Buy and Download. There is a minimum amount of $10 or actually 10 credits required but they can download the images they want without having to purchase a credit package and be left with unused credits.

Crop Factor, can ruin sales.

posted on 20th of november, 2008

Hi, I would like to share something with DT which I guess will be very useful for everyone on DT, I don't know if this subject is already covered, if yes, sorry for my ignorance, but anyways I'm continuing to write this at least newbies might get benefited.

Well recently I was doing a freelance project for two of client and we are searching images in DT, my client liked so many images here on DT, but was it his bad luck or the contributors bad luck, the client and his creative manager rejected 80 images out of 100 selected in the light box. The reason the image is excellent, but BAD CROPPING, even I dint notice it while creating the light box. The client wanted around 40 portrait image and he settled down for just 5 out of the selected 20. Its huge loss for the DT Community. So i suggest contributors...

My image in this month’s assignment.

posted on 27th of november, 2008

There were loads of complaint and discussion when the assignment was announced. First it was for late second people thought they don’t have a dreamstime t-shirt to compete, third people were confused forth some people were angry saying dreamstime is promoting their new online shop. Well it seems a nice topic for me, and I have loads of stuff ready for this competition, and I just uploaded this image and got approved.
As I’m launching my second eshop store exclusively for t-shirts this assignment was a good thing for me and I had few t-shirts designed and uploaded two from that collection to test, one got approved and other I don’t know yet as its still in queue. Now I'm tempted to upload all my t-shirt designs to dt, but I guess too much is too bad, and moreover my t-shirt design will look out...

Terror Stuck My Country

posted on 29th of november, 2008

Dear DT community its been a sad day for all Indians since 26th Nov 08. Our dear city Mumbai was hit my terror, some 40 terrorist stormed into well known five star property and targeted tourists and killed 200 people and injured around 300 people. And also killed our three most powerful & elite Police officers.

I don't want to riot this site as I'm aware that this is not the place to blog personal things I just want you guys to know how painful it was for us for three days. I'm just highlight how this 40 bloody terrorist terrorized every Indian for almost 60 hours. I hope and pray this doesn't happen in any other country and doesn't repeat again in my homeland India.

I salute all the people who scarified their life to save us.
