Having become an exclusive contributor for Dreamstime recently, I would earn 20 cents for every photograph uploaded. I have been asking myself what this amount means to me.For most of us, I suppose, 20 cents isn’t much.It isn’t enough to get us a set lunch, for example. 20 cents isn't enough for us to take public transport, such as a bus or a subway train. 20 cents can’t buy us some nice clothes. ... continue reading

Yesterday I had to cut my nails very short... as I am nervously biting them last days... The reason is simple - I am 17 cents short to pick my first payout on DT.The balance stopped moving two weeks ago and refuses to rise - and nothing helps - I already started to talk to that number - asking it to go up, commanding, begging, hypnotizing and using psi-forces to push it beyond payout limit... but with no success...It really can drive one crazy, when reward is within reach of hand and yet... continue reading

Well I have wanted to post something hopefully ....useful. I have been with Dreamstime for a couple of years now and must say I seem to "fit in" here. I enjoy the community feel. Also Dreamstime seems to be well managed and respect their contributors. Reading the blogs is also enlightening and fun at times. All of us here are creating Micro-stock for various reasons. Maybe for the money, love of photography, skills improvement or a creative outlet. I guess I'm doing it for all of these reasons.... continue reading
Now, after all that shooting there must be an outcome am I right?To be frank, I joined Dreamstime out of curiosity, I didn't see it as a site which could sell. All along I thought it was a small market here.I AM SO WRONG!!!I had expected immediate sales when I uploaded my first few photos which numbered around five of them.
