  • Level 5 !!!!!

    by Teekaygee | 11th of August, 2009

    Woo hoo! I just checked my stats, and this shot has just received its 100th download and is now level 5. I had wondered if sales would slow when it made it to level 4 and thus cost more, but buyers are obviously not deterred by higher levels if the image suits their needs.... More

    I spent nearly eight months to reach my second 1,000 downloads. This is my latest milestone,2,000 Downloads! I would like to say thank you for DT with buyers at this point. I think I'll work harder to achieve their new goals. More

    by Mani33 | 29th of July, 2009

    Hi all, I think after my first buying on DT I just went addicted on it :)) Yesterday I set up the ideas with my new client on an SMS service project (Not telling the project of course :P) I had my ideas ready and the meeting just went the way I wanted it ;) As I said... More

  • Most Downloaded vs. Highest Price Paid

    by Toynutz | 8th of July, 2009

    It is a surprise to me which of my submissions generate the most downloads as opposed to which ones earn me the most income. For instance, the Mini Cooper S Convertible, a diecast scale model miniature, has been downloaded seven times, with the most recent download at $24... More
  • Why some submarines sell?

    by Gmargittai | 1st of July, 2009

    Greetings, I am like most of you puzzled about what sells and why. I have here two pictures I took before I even thought about stock photography. They got accepted nevertheless. While one of them was getting at the beginning a lot more hits (the one through the window)... More

    I am happy with the results on DT with 100 DLs in just over 4 months here as a new member. A little more than 500 images on line now and I will be adding more. I also have earned my first paycheck on DT in less than 4 months. This is the image sold as number 100.... More
  • New Trend in n/a Sales

    by Sgcallaway1994 | 29th of June, 2009

    I'm noticing a new trend: 1. 75% (6/8) of my last downloads are from n/a sales 2. I don't have any photos in the free section 3. ALL of my photos are in both private and public COLLECTIONS What does this mean: (My Conclusions)? 1. The search engine has changed... More
  • Where are the Views at?

    by Voodooshack | 15th of June, 2009

    I've made my biggest push for uploads in the last couple of weeks by adding 27 new pictures of the desert in the southwest part of the USA, and it's all been for naught. Not a single one of them has had a view to this point, let alone download. That's unlike my experience... More

  • Reached 1000 sales in two years

    by Robisklp | 1st of June, 2009

    It took me 2 years to reach 1000 sales in DT. Now i think that i'm really getting better at doing illustrations on the last months, but it's still much to learn. Now i'm going to slow down on doing illustrations and will try to learn something new. Would like to get more... More

    by Irisangel | 27th of May, 2009

  • Imaging the keywords

    by Alexhor | 18th of May, 2009

    I don't know if anyone covered that subject but here is my few cents. In stock photography we are familiar with the term "keywording the images". Pretty hard task to do. Sometimes even hard to figure ten descent keywords. With time we become skilled, we learn how to use synonyms,... More

    by Mollysauro | 11th of May, 2009

    today I have reached a personal goal and have rec'd 100 downloads from other users Thank you to each and everyone of you that has downloaded one of my images See Article
  • Level 5 - My Birthday Gift

    by Thefinalmiracle | 11th of May, 2009

    Is the title of this blog confusing?? Well it shouldn't be. Lately there was a debate on the board about whether assignment images should be shown first in the MOST POPULAR section in our portfolio. I had voted that they shouldn't be. The reason was simple. An assignment... More

  • Latest photo area

    by Bradcalkins | 28th of April, 2009

    One of the hidden gems on the DT main page is the 'Latest' tab: Latest Photos This gives you two very interesting tools: 1. Latest downloads. This is a quick look at 5 or so of the latest purchases made by buyers. I am often surprised at what kinds of things people... More

    Spring is in the air, and we're starting to see some buds forming. I had to bring them inside for this shot to get away from the snow we are still having! Spring is a good time for my one year DT anniversary. I've definitely met or exceeded where I thought I would be a... More
