Here come the first designer-oriented features of the geo-tagging project launched a few weeks ago (details here).

World's visual atlas:

Designers can explore fantastic places just by browsing your extraordinary imagery available on the world's map. All geo-tagged images are included in this map at various zoom levels. Priority is given based on the number of downloads/views at different zoom levels. Once you zoom in, the map gets populated with new images. There are already over 100,000 images available to start with, but there is always room for more. That's why we strongly suggest contributors to geo-tag their outdoor images (full requirements at link above). An icons alternative will be handy to users with less powerful configuration for their computers.

Recently purchased images and their designers' locations:

While the number of images available grows, we will produce other functionalities using this data. For now, please check the Latest tab map, which shows the most recent downloads of geo-tagged images and their location.

We'll be relocating!

And some more good news! Dreamstime has grown to the point that it exceeds physical boundaries, being rather a state of mind than just a company. But we're still a business and need to look at things likewise. Effective June 1st, Dreamstime's teams will be relocating to a state-of-the-art three mast

schooner anchored in international waters. The schooner was recently reconverted to acommodate our requirements and is scheduled out of the shipyard in the upcoming weeks.

The reason is simple, international waters are a free-tax zone, which also means that no withholding tax is to be applied to foreign photographers from that point on. Besides conventional energy, servers will be powered via waves energy (also solar panels). Based on this fact, we don't expect to be anchored near-shore, but in deep water where long-wavelength oscilations can be experienced. Strong gales will provide eolian power until 7-8 Bft. The ship will also include several studios in her 9,570 cubic feet cargo that was reconverted. I will skip the details, needless to say how she will be named ;). The staff will shift periodically in order not to lose grounds :) but everyone is really excited about spending a few months a year on the sea. Of course, a small part of our team will remain on shore for logistical duties, while we stay away from the Gulf of Aden. More info TBA.

Raise sail, head to the open sea!

I already packed my swimming suit. Though I promise I will opt for a decent outfit while working. But after work, it's swimming and tanning timeeeeeee!!!

Just don't forget to take your sea sickness tablets...and when swimming, the anti-shark tablets :)

We might need to redefine the term 'remote editor' once the schooner raises sail ;)

:D Sounds like fun.

I already see the notification: "upload limits temporarily reduced to 10 images per week due to strong winds and heavy rain - don't worry we are fine!"

I like to snorkel so I think Serban will buy me a underwater case for my computer. Don't like to tan much so I'll wear protection a zillion and I don't get sea sickness. So I'm good to go, just lemme go take my snorkeling mask.

And you could sail from country to country when you need to change onboard staff. "Foreigners" to be taxed/untaxed then alters with each change of staff. Sailing the world would give everyone at DT a chance to go aboard and use the studios! In fact, access to the studio could correlate to time spent onboard working....ooohh, the possibilities are endless.

Bad idea. I keep reading in the "Upload Limit Message" thread how DT is a sinking ship.
