No, you can only opt out of all alliances, which we don't recommend, but in the end, it's your choice.

Online newspapers from my country are using photos from facebook to illustrate articles (they quote the source - Photo Facebook // Name_of_the_fb_account). What do you think about this?

I can if its an image that has been purchased purely to enhance an individuals account! There is also no comeback either, due to the complicated rights system that FB adheres too.

What I wanna say is we must take care to what photos we put on Facebook. Anyone can steal or share. Newspapers found fb a great source of hq FREE images and I disagree with this!

Exactly, this is becoming a concerning phenomenon and our project tries to educate users about what licensing means. Cumulated actions of the stock photography industry can counteract this phenomenon. It's something that needs to be addressed before it is too late.

People steal photos using Google Images too, long before Facebook or the other social networks.

But we have to give credit to Social Media for the power it has to educate the general public, cause it works both ways.

While on Google you have to ask for a certain information in order to get it, on Facebook you don't have to ask for it, it is presented to you, shared by one of your friends.

Yesterday, Dreamstime's Noelle Federico published this educative article about the new shared album feature of Facebook. It's just one of many other educative articles that our staff is publishing often on different channels. We now have the option to recommend this kind of articles to our friends, using social networks, while in the past someone would have to search for this information on Google (which rarely happened).

So we should take advantage of the useful features of Social Media and try to educate the public, instead of just isolate ourselves from the rest of the world, thinking that we're more safe this way.

I still can't find my images through this site, even putting my username in the link provided. However, when I google my usertime and timeline images, I see several of my photos, and I've been able to go in through each individual one and crop.

When I search for my DT user name on Timeline Images using the search box (top right) there "are no images for your query, please use a different keyword".

When I search using keywords from specific images (ie. funky psychedelic), 30 of my images are displayed.

How can I do a search for ALL of my images that are on Timeline? Presumably this is via my DT username, but HOW can I do this?

I am also rather concerned that anyone can crop MY images on Timeline - I think that's a bad move. Surely only the contributor should have the right to alter their images.

I would like to crop some/all of my images on Timeline, but don't want to use my FB account to do this. Why can't I crop using my existing DT log in details, given that it's DT's site? Can you please include this option?

Also, I don't "follow" DT on social media, other than the occasional look at the FB page so if DT is only giving out news on social media sites then that is also very worrying. I would rather see a section of DT's main site with a "news page" so I don't have to log into several different sites to see what's happening, just DT.

@Maijaliisa: all RF images on Dreamstime are available on TimelineImages.com too.
@Sherj: the review time depends on the amount of images waiting in pending line, we can't provide an estimate at this time, but usually the crops are reviewed in a few days.
@Melonstone: the process is not very simple, indeed, but here's a fast solution until we figure out how to ease it: perform a blank search, no words in the search box, it will return all the images available on TimelineImages. Then, enter this link in your browser and change my username with yours: http://www.timelineimages.com/author-cover-photos/Dudau.

The news section is right on our homepage, we don't give out news only on social media sites, so the first place you can read our news is DT, of course :)

Thanks Dadau for your prompt reply & advice for Timeline, which I've tried, and it worked (hurray).

Are the viewed/download stats against a Timeline image simply a repeat of viewed/download stats as the same image on DT as I noticed they are both identical?

Phew, I regularly read the news section on DT's homepage, so at least I haven't missed anything!

Yes, the views/downloads are the same on both sites and every sale from TimelineImages counts in our level-based price system on Dreamstime.

No, the crops should have been reviewed by now. If you don't see the changes, they may have been refused. If you think they shouldn't have been refused, or there may be a bug in the system, please contact our support and specify the IDs of the files, so we can investigate the problem.

I croped around 20 images, I'm pretty sure there were at least some good ones.
I'm guessing there is no communication wether they were refused or not, because I have received none.
That said, I'll try again and take note on wich ones were changed so see if there is a problem.
