An Open Letter to Designers

Dear Designers

You are probably aware of the current issues regarding lowering cost of images, shrinking returns to photographers and the parlous state of the stock market at this time. Some are questioning that the current situation is sustainable. In a wider sense, this may or may not be correct, but dark clouds may be ahead.

But please understand that Dreamstime is not one of the agencies often quoted as being at the heart of the problem.

As far as I can see Dreamstime provides an excellent service both to buyers and providers. As far as providers go Dreamstime is very fair. They:

* review our work with understanding,

* maintain quality and almost always offer sound reasons for rejection,

* are respectful in their communication with us, and

* seem to offer a fair return for our work (at least within the context of

the current market).

So, thank you for your support and please continue using Dreamstime, safe in the knowledge that you are playing a part in making sustainability happen.

Yes there is a fair amount of fair play here at DT so I suppose all can harbour on it.

Dreamstime is a good site.
I want the editor give more details about the refused reason.
I think this will help us more.
