Meet Timeline Images, our newest project, a platform built specifically for the Facebook community which is now rapidly getting closer to 1 billion user accounts. Ti is designed as a creative and original resource for Facebook cover photos mainly.
We have always tried to go beyond our industry's borders and this is just another step we have taken in that direction. Unlike licenses sold on Dreamstime, TimelineImages sells an end-user only license type, granting no other rights than using the image for social media accounts.

We have set an attractive universal price of $1 for all images available and the size downloaded is somewhere between extrasmall and small. Keep in mind that this is a new type of license and we are allowing access to small sized images only. Royalties are awarded as per our level-structure, between 20-60% and these sales will be reflected in our Dreamstime accounts as any other Alliance sale. Users are provided with two options and they can download the images with or without a credit line. The first 3 downloads are free, complimentary from Dreamstime. They are awarded as subscription downloads for our contributors with royalties between $0.35-42 per download. The contributors are kindly asked not to download their own images, these free downloads are meant for promotional reasons only.

As you will see, the site includes a hand-picked collection with striking images that send a powerful message and are already cropped for Facebook. There is a secondary set where all our images are made available. The user can crop before downloading when using this secondary resource. Everything else is pretty simple and intuitive, despite the hard work this has required.

Only images that are enrolled in our Alliances participate in this program. Contributors can opt in/out their portfolios should they decide to do so. The project is still under development, please be gentle about it and email us any issues you may come across.

We hope you enjoy it, it's time to update your Facebook covers ;)

LOL....my first thoughts are I've got visions of every teenage boy in America downloading from Bobby's portfolio.

Does the "adult" filter apply or does the license specify the user has to be over a certain age? It doesn't bother me in the least bit, but I'm sure it will come up.

For the moment the content filter is on because Facebook is for over 13 only. But... we will think at a solution and we'll try to solve this matter :)

Great idea! But where do we find it? I don't see any links to it on the homepage or on any of the tabs.

Nevermind. Just found the link in the News area. For anyone else who wants it, it's just www.timelineimages.com.

Edit: Sorry, Serban. Finally found the link in your post... duh! LOL

Sell those images at 72 dpi....? It's so easy to steal images from the internet and social media increases the possibilty it will happen. 72 dpi restricts what the thieves can do.

And thank you for selecting some of my images for the start-up. :-)

Are the three free images available to everyone or just DT contributors?

Just when I was getting fed up with poor sales DT comes up with another bright idea! Well done.

Seems like an interesting idea and and a good way to make some money out of social media image use! It will be very interesting to see how it works out.

Very nice looking website by the way.

Do we have to wait for DT to go through 15 million images and re crop or is there any plans for a system here on DT for us to do our own with images we think would go well, crop them and submit them for approval onto Ti? If you get my gist?

I like that idea. It would also alleviate a lot of the burden for DT to go through and do it themselves.

Fascinating approach - anxious to see how this goes. Two questions:

Do sales in Ti count towards Levels in "regular" DT?
Will there be some indication in Earnings to differentiate Ti and "normal"?

Great work guys!

Great idea ! With a possible bright future. For these kind of costumers (impulse buyers) though the paying method has to be fast and easy and i think a paypal link should be included as many people do not use credit cards.
