500 Sales Thanks to the DT Community!

posted on 4th of march, 2013

In May of 2011 I bought my first camera! I was so excited to start shooting photos so I could upload them on DreamsTime. DreamsTime is my favorite micro stock agency that I'd been using to purchase photos for projects at the ad agency I work at. But like most people, I didn't realize that even with a decent camera you still need to understand the science of photography AND upload images that have marketability.

The problem is that some people and some companies don't have FTP sites or FTP programs to access our FTP site. The solution is to use one of the online File Transfer sites that allows you to email someone a link to download the files you are wanting to provide to them. We've used many of these sites.

Recently I found a site that allows you to transfer up to 2GB for FREE and they don't require an account with them whether you are the sender or the receiver. This website is WeTransfer.com. And here's another cool thing about WeTransfer, they have giant ads in the background of their web page...
