I have best results with google images. Move thumbnail of your picture from dreamstime to search bar and google will find same and similar pictures.

I was able to find some of my photos (including a couple that had been included in books) by entering into google my official dreamstime name and then dreamstime - as follows:

"David Watts Jr" dreamstime

hope this helps.

Books can be found on, by searching for your name + Dreamstime. Otherwise, google on your names + dreamstime or try tineye. I've got thousands of sales and have only found about 10 shots in use, so if that is any indication you'll have to be lucky as well - not everyone buys the shot to use on the web...

You can try on Google with username@Dreamstime or your real name@Dreamstime

The tineye-website was my suggestion, too.
