Money talks!

   There are billions of dollars in this world and every country has currency. These kind of money pictures will attract buyers that are marketing Banks, stock-markets, and anything to do with currency or travel to Canada. Stories are told in the news everyday about currency also. I learned to make sure whoever is holding money in your pictures have nice hands and clean nails. Business people pay attention to details so do not forget the details.I noticed a lot of pictures of people holding... continue reading

I hate it...

using the google image finder one can find tons of watermarked images....I hate it because many sites that use watermarked images are in hyroglyphic (non-arabic) fonts like Korean or Greek, have no contact adress, and if they have something like this they do not provide any document of correct image licensing, if one asks for.Some examples:Greek page with Euro-BombMany watermarked DT imagesAnother Euro-BombWhat I hate the most: even if you use a DMCA Takedown Request nothing... continue reading

Warning: shopping scam website

I've been looking around the web for the best price for a Panasonic 20mm f1.7. I came across DVStage.com, an impressive looking site which purports to offer the lens at £148 - £122 pounds less than the next lowest price! Thinking this is probably too good to be true, I googled them and found lots of reports about their shady dealings. Typical is: this one.Hope this is helpful! continue reading

Frequent Refunds

I've been having more and more refunds lately, mainly subscriptions.I've read a few threads about this problem; we really need a solution from DT. I go crazy when I think someone has downloaded my file and still has it after the refund. In case of credit card fraud, I don't think there's much ethically to prevent the downloader from bypassing all copyrights agreements.Yesterday, I got 2 refunds, and today a whole 10 at once. Previously, many many more. This is outrageous.... continue reading

Back in action.

Wow its been a long time, here in DT, after reading Carmen's latest blog, I guess I have to be little active here. I always believed that blogs and forums did help in sales, never thought it is helpful in search results. Mani, I guess your images will be all over the search results, may be the images will pop up in the key words your image doesn't contain. Well keep up the good work dude, you and some of the other mates keep this section live and active.I was little busy, away from photographs,... continue reading

Stock Photography Fraud

Although the image displayed on the agency web site is watermarked, it doesn't seem to stop a few people from copying them and then adjusting the exposure and contrast to disuse the watermark and use without paying the small licensing fee.After visiting my favorite downtown Sushi restaurant and noticing that they had a new menu, I picked one up to see what was new. When I arrived home later I had a closer look and almost couldn't believe my eyes when I closely examined the cover. The photograph... continue reading
