Timelapse software and subjects

 Dear readers,in some days we will receive our Timelapse Software and we are very glad, that we than can offer 4K and HD timelapse videos.

We need some interesting places for it. The problem is only, that Frankfurt is in the night a dangerous city (we hear often cries... continue reading

How to create a good glass engraving pattern

Hello,I am always searching for good glass engraving patterns. But what is necessary, to make a good glass engraving pattern? It does not really help the engraver if he or she has a photography of an engraved glass object. Great are patterns which have a white background and black outlines. I was searching for glass engraving patterns and I have found a lot of photographies, but only some few useful really patterns. The lines need to be exactly and should have the same thickness. I am little lazy... continue reading

The risk to get stolen the camera - what to do?

Dear members,a lot of dreamstime members have very expensive cameras and the risk, that the e.g. Canon bag with camera will be cutted by someone is also high in some areas. My camera was not very expensive ca. 160 eur / ca. 220 dollars, but I am only using a normal bum bag / fanny pack for my Fujifilm camera. Of course some people will be proud, to wear a bag with a Nikon or Canon logo and feel better with it, but they also give attention to possible thiefs. And it is really hard to loose a camera... continue reading

A free program for additional format eps

Dear members of dreamstime,sometimes I am reading, that the additional format was not accepted. You can fix this problem, if you are using the open source program GIMP. It is an image manipulation program and it is free. You can download it on GIMP.org. I had the luck, that until today every eps additional image was accepted by dreamstime. Gimp is able to save the image as an eps. If you have for example a jpg image then you click save as and write simply in the field the name of the image and... continue reading

I have taken a little bit naivly photographies of different subjects and I had CAs. At first I didn't know what does this mean and then I have informed myself on the internet. After... continue reading

Inkscape: A great vector program, but some mistakes

Hello,I am using the German version of Inkscape. It is a great vector graphic program, with a lot of good features. There are different formats to save. You can create round edges, delete, submit and form pathes, there is a tool to create stars, polygons and the wonderful calligraphy tool. For Gimp users is Inkscape a little different, mainly the color section works different. At first you have to choose a form e.g. a square or an elliptical form and then you choose the color. Of course there... continue reading

Creating a new image in Inkscape without jagged lines

Hello,this is my first blog entry. I want to write about a theme, which could be interesting for the illustrators.I have used Inkscape, a vector graphic program and it was great: the lines are straight like anything else. After I have created some illustrations with Inkscape, the problem of jagged and facetted lines was solved.
