On 16th of December, 2011 I posted a article about my 500th Sale. Now it is early 2013. It takes about 14 months for reach 1000th download with this one-I'm uploading in this site from later 2009, but actively from mid of 2010 as the rejection rate was very high in early uploading, I could submit only 2-5 image per week. Today I've found that my acceptance rate is almost 80%. Though The sale volume in Dreamstime, in my opinion, doesn't increase very much with the increase of portfolio size, download... continue reading

This was my first ever planned shot....and I had shot this especially for uploading on Dreamstime. And tonight it sold. :)And this was also my 4th uploaded shot on Dreamstime. At that time I was finding this site TOTALLY frustrating. It was like there is no hope. I was getting rejections after rejections for poor lens quality and compression artifacts and a thousand other things I never really could understand. I had signed up just before I turned 18 hoping to earn big. (Now I have been... continue reading

Like every beginners, I was very frustrated, demoralized and felt hopeless during my initial stage at Dreamstime.Tons of rejections as a result of blur images, lens fringing, chromatic aberrations, uneven sharpness in focus area, image is out of focus, poor optical performance due to low lens quality, and many more...Also very poor acceptance ratio limit the quantity of upload.I registered with Dreamstime on 25th of November, 2008. The fist image sold was on 5th January 2009 (about a month... continue reading

I have finally reached my first 100$ today, after more than 2 years contributing to DT agency :) Although somewhere along the way I lost my hope for this thing to happen, when I saw today that I achieved it I felt really happy and raised my hopes and expectations back high.The most important thing I learnt along the way is too choose only the best of the best from a series of photographs. I have stumbled many times into rejections of images I really liked. Then I realised that most of them simply... continue reading
Hello friends,I know this is a little success for many contributors but for me it is a Big Success, I finally reached 1000 sales :-)It took a bit over a year and half but i think it is not too bad with just 350 images online. Unfortunately i do not have too much time to dedicate to microstock due to my main job, but I hope to achieve at least 500 images online as soon as possible!Thanks to all, Dreamstime's staff, buyers and all of you :-)This is my sale number 1000Bye, Francesco... continue reading
Wow.It just seems like yesterday when I started at Dreamstime and enter the world of microstock photography.I remember vividly saying to myself, it's worth a shot (pardon the pun) since I already enjoy taking photos anyway.What can a lose?Almost 5 years later, I finally reached 3000 sales.To many, this may not be such a significant milestone since it took almost 5 years to achieve.But considering my portfolio size is only 252 photos, I'm very proud of my achievement.I remember the... continue reading
