2000 Sales _ Ok, so can I upgrade?

posted on 3rd of august, 2011

It is with great pleasure that I have today marked off another of the BIG milestones that I have been hanging for, for some time now …

2000 sales!

Rather fitting that is an image from within the series of images that were of my 1st kindling to my journey into my pursuit into photography.

This marker now has brought with it a new "dilemma".
So do I now still classify myself as a keen hobbyist? Or should I realistically start placing myself into a higher grade?

It would be easy to say, "Yes", but I am ever the realist. And I guess until that "final" goal is achieved, I may indeed want to hang onto the security blanket title of "ultra keen hobbyist".

OK, so I've been playing with the new search feature on Google.
Have any of you been doing the same?

I have to admit there have been some good and bad results so far.

Bad in that during the course of the hits that I have found, I seem to have found more images being illegally used, than the legally used ones.

As fa as the ones that are producing hits [outside of the dreamstime and or its affiliated stock libraries] and as far as the ones that I am assuming are legally used, as the images have at the very least registered a download, and are being used without watermarks present.

Hmmmmmm, that brings me to the next issue for discussion …
DT Watermarks. Who else out there feels that the DT watermark needs some level...

I agree with Brett:"I'm sure that theft is a very small part of the overall market", but I agree also with you. Many of my illustrations are, for example, sets of icons on white background, and often some icons are not at all covered by the watermark, so even easier to use them :-(

I agree with you.... Let's see if DT can do something about it.
