One of my files here was downloaded few days ago. I did a search for it cause I just wanted to see where my files end up, and I found it on Czech stock photography website. So they bought my file, I got 35 cents for it and now they are getting money from it? I think they should have bought rights for that, right?Thanks for your thoughts people! Good luck to everyone with their stock! continue reading

Last weekend was sunny and still. Quite a contrast to the weather experienced this week! What better way to spend the morning than to take a walk around the wetlands of King's Billabong. Where is that you may ask. The outskirts of Mildura, near Nichols Point on the Murray River, the top of Victoria, Australia. The bush tracks led me to secluded areas of golden reeds growing in shallow waters lapping the edge of the billabong. Bushy topped grey/green gums stood tall along the bush tracks. A variety... continue reading

In July 2008 I started uploading pictures that seemed perfect and beautifulbut to my dismay they were all rejected. Still I didn't give up. Finally one of my photographs which was uploaded on 19-07-2008 was accepted on 24-7-2008 (ID:5805196). So excited, I kept trying my luck.More rejections than acceptance. On 17-8-2008 I was more excited when the first download (ID:58051960) happened with 3 credits. Until the end of June 2014 I had only 41 accepted images with 92 downloads.I was very reluctant... continue reading
Today, I discovered an amazing thing about the misuse of pictures downloaded illegally on Dreamstime.By a sudden curiosity, I installed a plugin on my internet explorer to search my photos on the internet. After some research, I came across a site called ELSA, an association of lawyers based in London. I left them a message to remind them that one of their pages is using one of my photos illegally with the Dreamstime watermark without the bottom right credit informations.What do you think... continue reading
Here we are, middle of the summer and my social circles are just bursting with pups everywhere. On top of this we have one of the warmest summers in ages, with just enough clouds to give an interesting background as well as blur the light very now and then. So what do I do in all of this? I lie at home knocked out completely. Such a perfect time for my health to be unhealthy...I've barely been able to leave the house and lawn for two weeks, with great inconvenience for my dogs I might add... But... continue reading

Hello there!Another rejection of your additional file? Don't panic! Take a deep breath and read this blog. I hope it will help you to understand the mistakes you make.I'll start with vectors. The most common mistake is raster (bitmap) elements on your illustration. It happens when you export a file format that isn't supported because of certain types of gradients, transparent objects or different effects that you used.More simply: if your iIllustrator is CS6 and you use transparent... continue reading
When I started at Dreamstime, I thought every times about potential sales. I read different tips many times, which photos I should upload to get high sales and approval ratio. But 4 month ago I decided, that I don’t want take photos without passion. I started taking the photos on my favorite themes (industrial, transportation, planes, trains). I started 2 new collections too (dreams of the sky and industrial and logistic in Russia).I get enjoy with each photo in my portfolio. And my approval... continue reading
