5000 approved photos. Time to say Hello again :)

posted on 6th of october, 2014

A year ago, precisely, I have decided to overcome my usual social reluctance and say Hello to the dreamstime community since I have reached the 1000 approved photos landmark. If you are curious you can find the post HERE.

Now, one year later I have added four more thousand photos to my account, which is a great achievement for me. So I think it is a proper moment to say Hello again :)

Of course I didn't believe one year ago that I could have so many approved photos in just one year. Two things helped me to get this far. The first is the change in dreamstime policy regarding the maximum files allowed for upload. This, combined with my continually increasing approval rate, allowed me to upload...

A GPS alternative for Nikon DSLRs

posted on 7th of october, 2014

I am a Nikon DSLR user. And since I travel quite frequently I want a GPS device to geotag my photos. A GPS is handy not just for inserting the photo coordinates. But especially since dreamstime has a Geo-location link, when you submit the photo it will show it's shooting position on the map or satellite imagery, providing of course that the photo has GPS coordinates in the metadata. And it is extremely useful to know where exactly did you take a certain picture in order to submit an accurate description of that photo.

Personally, I don't understand why GPS is so scarcely available in the DSLR bodies. For instance, Canon offers just the full frame 6D with built in GPS while on the Nikon side only the D5300 cropped sensor body has it (I don't know the situation for Sony or others). Now, why those particular...

Dreamlike cruise for Dreamstime photos. Part II

posted on 24th of october, 2014

This is the second part of my post regarding the fabulous cruise I had this September. You may find the first part HERE.

The first stop was Palermo, the capital of Sicily, Italy. To me the city appeared crowded, dirty and not so much appealing. Here the tips learnt on the web prior to the cruise were helpful. Travelers to Palermo warned me to avoid the colorful tourist carriages from the port as they were overpriced. And they were right. 80 Euros, as I was asked for a ride across the city is a real fortune. The Palermo cathedral was a great spot as it is a place full of history. And since they allowed to climb to the roof, it was fun too.

Next stop was Tunis, which to me was the biggest disappointment...

Thanks. Yes, I came back with a lot of photos. A bit over 3500 in total :) Surprisingly I had a gorgeous approval rate. I have selected 1133 and I was approved 930. Quite happy about it.
