Sure by now you have heard about the potential risk of losing control over your images once you upload them on the Internet (on your blog, Facebook/Twitter/G+ page or even by selling them). Here's an older article here that explains how minor changes in layout can generate a huge mass of copyright infringements, in most cases without people even knowing it.The content we generate as professionals or amateurs, for commercial means or just for fun should remain ours, at least for the next 72 years.... continue reading

Just as I was thinking my sales were slow this month compared to the previous three, I found this morning that I had sold two TIFF extended licenses (W-EL & P-EL) for the same image:I think it's probably the same buyer, which seems unusual. Has anyone else had this experience?Thank you to the buyer! continue reading
This weekend I had the pleasure of having two personal milestones:First, I had my first U-EL and I-EL sale!!! This was a major surprise for me, although I had to wait some time for it. But the wait worth it! This is the one!Thanks Dreamstime!The second personal milestone is having over 300 Online Images! And I did it. Of course, I'm not going to stop and I want to have at least 400 at the end of the year. I'll have to work some for this, but an extended licence it's a thought that keeps me... continue reading
Dear Dreamstimers,I just have to share this with you: today I had my very first ever EL sale! It was an I-EL sale too and I almost had a heart attack when I saw it.

I have always liked it because it is so cheerful.Here it is:Thank you very much Buyer and thank you Dreamstime for promoting... continue reading
Today is my lucky day, Ifinally reach $100 after about 8 months in DT.Another interesting fact was the limit breaker was downloaded for a P-EL license. It was just a few more cents to go to reach $100, and then BOOOMMMM!!! One of my image was downloaded as P-EL ^_^. That image has 0 download from it was online but once it was downloaded it got P-EL.Very surprising and I think it's pretty good for an absolute beginner like me.So here it is, the limit breaker: continue reading
Over the course of my time here on DT, I haven't had a lot of extended license sale - mostly stright credit purchases at different levels. Then a couple days ago I look at my account and see a huge jump (for me) in my profits from earlier in the day. I saw it was the same image purchased 3 times, and I figured maybe one was ok, but that the buyer had just been button happy. Then I noticed they bought three different extended licenses - a P, W & I - new first/milestone!!! Here's the image that made... continue reading
