Sometimes when I illustrate, my EPS file gets too big (around 50MB or more) and that's one thing you can avoid happening.For better compatibility I save my vector files as EPS 8, so after the original AI file is finished try to shrink the size of the file this way:- Click Save As (choose EPS)-A new dialog box appears and you choose the Version: Illustrator 8 EPS (for best compatibility)-Choose the Preview Format to NONE (this will decrease the size of it quite a bit)-Now uncheck Embed... continue reading

Although there are many tools for expressing creativity through illustration, I noticed that some people are most comfortable using Flash from Adobe Creative Suite collection.It is true that once you get used to Flash drawing tools it apears more simple then any other tool. It has very intuitive handling of strokes, fills gradients, automatic stroke intersections, drawing priomitives, importing .ai graphics, using layers, etc. etc.I personaly use flash for initial drawing. Anyhow, Flash .swf... continue reading
Yesterday I've sold my first additional format... it's an ".ai" extension for a vector image.Unluckly it has been sold has a subscription, so I only earned 0,42$, not much... but I'm happy to know that the time spent to save my files as additional format can be useful for some buyers.Also I'm at 24 downloads at the moment with an average of one image download for week. Not bad, I think. I've uploaded some new vector illustrations that I like during this month. I hope they'll be downloaded... continue reading
Hi everyone!DT provides the possibility to buy TIF-images instead of JPGs.That said, I would like to ask all of you about your experience with this opportunity. Does it often happen, that a customer buys (and pays the extra price) this format?In my case until now just one TIF-download happened. continue reading
I'd like to be in autumn or winter to taste the cold of those seasons!Summer it's too hot for sleeping good and, with few hours slept every night, also my will to create is smaller (not everyday, fortunately).I started to uploads EPS file, some of them are already accepted by DT and it's very good, not only because, through the eps, I can give buyers a greater supply, but also because upload eps, allow me to "pick up ideas for new images to be created, as well as create a continuous line to... continue reading
I am wondering in which format I should save and then submit illustrations made with Inkscape.The DT-faq say: I am an illustrator; do you accept illustrations?We love illustrations! Vector files should be saved in raster format, JPG at a high resolution, saved at highest quality and submitted in this format. As soon as they are accepted or right from the first submission you can also upload an additional format (ai, cdr or eps extensions accepted) which will sell at a higher price.Is there... continue reading
Dear members of dreamstime,sometimes I am reading, that the additional format was not accepted. You can fix this problem, if you are using the open source program GIMP. It is an image manipulation program and it is free. You can download it on GIMP.org. I had the luck, that until today every eps additional image was accepted by dreamstime. Gimp is able to save the image as an eps. If you have for example a jpg image then you click save as and write simply in the field the name of the image and... continue reading
Just a week after the announcement of TIFF availability, I opened up my account and got a pleasant surprise:one of my image got a TIFF sale.It was among my favorites.Taken in a alleyway in a historical downtown at sunset.Until then I had been only loading JPG.Now I am thinking about sending in some RAW format.I don't know how many people prefer the extra flexibility but with more post-processing work.Just curious, how many of you regularly send in RAW files and how are you doing... continue reading
