the real problem of dreamstime

posted on 7th of march, 2010

Hello to everyone!
As you can see in my portfolio, now I have 219 illustrations in Dreamstime.
Obviously I'll show you the pictures.

I am very happy because I see that the images are approved with constancy and this encourages me to continue, although the downloads are still few.

I admit that my portfolio has some problems: the images had few tags and some image must be "adjusted" to make it more attractive to designers. These are works I'm doing and I'll continue to do in the next days, hoping to serve something!

The real problem in dreamstime, in fact, is not tags or how to make images (have you ever seen, searching for images in "download ascending"...

I'm sorry to have been misunderstood by intention: I repeat that I'm not moving criticism to DT and the problem are something that since the beginning, I could be tied to the number and/or organization of my pictures!
Thanks for the advice, which I'm already applying in the reorganization of the illustrations. I don't know if it will serve, but I apply them the same....who knows?

Thanks again and if you have other suggestions write me :-)

yes again, as Rolmat advised,yes , i think it would be a good idea to double check to see if your keywords are irrelevant. that could help reduce the problem as you call it.
if too many times a buyer comes to your image by the wrong keyword, it could affect the buyer to ignore you the next time if too many times they pick on your image to see the wrong keywords. better to have less keywords but more relevant one than too many . also, balance your keywords with more literal ones than subjective or vague ones. best of luck to you again.

 Image not available or id is incorrect. 

Hi, I just gave a look at this illustration of yours. Now, there are some issues regarding relevancy as it definitely affects this image positioning in the database. Check your keywords: there are no egg, eggs, collection, party, set, icons, gift, shiny, purple, blue, gold (see, everything is green in the image!), english (the sample text is in French...), and many others that are very subjective or vague, i.e. maybe related to, but definitely not relevant to this particular illustration (surprise, beauty, etc). So, along with such a small portfolio, I wouldn't be that surprised about the positioning of this illustration on the search results. So, I guess this might be a "real" problem for you, and I would suggest that you give a closer check to your images keywords.
Hope it helps,
