Hello, I am trying to determine if I am currently listed as an exclusive photographer on Dreamstime. It is the only site where I sell my artwork files, but I am unsure if I listed myself as exclusive to Dreamstime and am worried I may be missing our on a larger percentage of sales when users download my work.

How can you check and modify your status?

Ok, it's possible I may have figured out my issue. It appears that you need a minimum of 50 files online to be eligible to be an exclusive photographer. I am sitting on 48, so hopefully the few I upload this week will be accepted and make me eligible.

Once you get your 50 uploads, you have to ask to become exclusive, under management. Then it can take a week or so. Good Luck! :-)

Once you have 50 uploads you go to the Management Area Exclusivity link. Your portfolio will be reviewed and, if everything is ok, it will be enabled as exclusive.

I haven't loaded anything to 500px but also want to know as I'm exclusive with Dreamstime. I can't load my more artistic photos to Dreamstime as they will not be considered stock or useful. But I would like to create a profile on 500px with maybe a few for sale. Anyone have info on this?

I'm not selling on any other stock site but would 500px be considered a stock site or a site to sell art? And what about other companies who only accept art and not stock?

Thanks

Any website that sells your work and retains a commission for it is considered as agent so you cannot upload images on such websites if you are exclusive contributors.
Exclusivity means that you have chosen Dreamstime to be your sole exclusive agent and your work to be sold solely via our platform. You can sell your work directly from your site or to end customers but anything that goes through intermediary agents, platforms, shops, galleries etc is not allowed.
