As I buyer, I've really enjoyed discovering Dreamstime. I don't do desktop publishing fulltime, but will usually do my own brochures and print materials every now and then. I've bought inexpensive photo libraries and I've bought some very expensive stuff as well.
While creating a new brochure, I knew I want to do a look and style of a Army manual, circa 1940. An internet search took me to Dreamstime and I was surprised at the quality, then was relieved by the price.
I purchased credits and downloaded several old paper pictures and adjusted them in Photoshop. In addition, I still had credits left so I browsed old army photos and found several that really made the brochure pop.
Since then, I have come back to download other images for projects I'm working on. Most recently, I am developing my fourth feature film (the last one was released by Sony and stars Lou Diamond Phillips) and I need art for a Business Plan. I am so grateful to have a resource like Dreamstime.
