Stolen images

You may have heard of the social media sensation @FuckJerry, or perhaps not. I hadn't until I had just read a Forbes magazine interview with the man behind the FuckJerry handle, Elliot Tebele. He seemed like just another guy who is making some waves across well known social media platforms.I was intrigued, and so searched for him on a well known picture sharing site. His account was instantly recognizable, especially since it now has a "verified" tick on it. I scrolled down the posts, mostly... continue reading

6000$ earned on Dreamstime :)

Hi Dreamstimers!Some years ago (03/02/2010) I uploaded my first pictures here on Dreamstime. I didn’t know what to expect.Days have passed – NO SALE, months have passed – still NO SALE. Shall I give up? Shall I upload more photos? Does this all make sense? Then, 6 months later, on 03/08/2010 my first sale! Juppi. I was so excited! I just earned 0,30$ with this picture, my first sold picture. Ok, so I will continue. I uploaded more. More sales came. My earnings balance looked better... continue reading

New on Dreamstime, will be grateful to get some tips!

Hi everyone!I'm quite new on Dreamstime. Even though I registered in 2013, after a friend's recommendation, I forgot about the site (my bad...) until 2016 and I started to upload pictures only a month ago.

Image chosen for Assignment

Every month Dreamstime offers contributors a chance to contribute images to the "on assignment" competition. Contributors can opt to make accepted images Level 5 right off the bat. Every month I think to myself that I'll give it a whirl, but never actually get round to it. Well, this month, the assignment was for images of Landmarks of Underrated Towns. Given that I live in the beautiful county of Cornwall in the UK, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to submit something this time round. Cornwall... continue reading

I am extremely grateful after my first sale!

     The first sale is something that every new photographer on this site is eagerly waiting for. And at some point,after more or less work and patience, it comes. Sometimes it comes just when the hope of ever selling something is almost lost. Excitement and extreme joy is what we feel first. And also gratitude to the buyer and much more trust in the site that made this sale possible.I've post this blog because I felt the need to express my gratitude to both the buyer and the site.... continue reading
