    by Awizard | 22nd of May, 2014

    Today I want to ask you a very interesting question: what do you do with images that were not sold for quite some time? I think many of you received a notification from DT about images that had not been sold for 4 years. This is the moment when you must make a choice: either... More
  • Happy for images taken with iPhone

    by Egomezta | 30th of April, 2014

    I wasn't sure if my iPhone was good enough to take images that DT would accept. So I gave it a try, mainly because I can't always carry my big Nikon camera everywhere and I have taken some images with the iPhone that would like to try to sell. I submitted 2 images... More
  • My 300 image mark is behind me!

    by Alexstork | 29th of April, 2014

    Milestones take huge effort and daily perseverance. Today I reached my second one. It seems that the first two may perhaps be the most difficult to achieve. Having confidence in one's ability when the sales are few and far in between sure takes courage. I'm hanging in... More

    by Perstock | 14th of March, 2014

    Anyone, how can i use an already uploaded image to enter an assignment? I am a little confused right now... I think some of my already uploaded - and some of them also been sold - images would ”fit in” as assignment images... A little bit of frustration... Cheers!... More

    by Theblackrhino | 11th of February, 2014
