Sourcing, Scaling, and Sizing Stock on Slides

When you license stock photo images from Dreamstime, you are offered a choice of image sizes and resolutions at different price points. There are two separate measurements associated with the image.The first measurement is the image size in pixels. You should see two numbers… height and width. A 640x800 image is made up of 640 pixels in the vertical direction and 800 pixels in the horizontal direction. Notice that this does NOT correspond to any specific size in inches. A 640x800 picture would fill... continue reading

a New Year and a new set of goals

In late 2015 I started working for a cultural Webzine as an event photographer, this took me to some very nice venues. From movie premiere red carpets to music festival and Cons. The deadline to provide images is so tight that I have for the last year been rarely uploading to DT. All my latest upload were test done on iPhone as it is almost instantaneous. My goal for 2017 is to get back into uploading at least 5 photos per week and that way I can with you what I have witnessed and was part of.... continue reading

Ten a day

I am pleased to say I have reached a milestone of 2,611 images on dreamstime, and as many of us know, it is not easy! We may have the best of intentions, be the best photographer, work hard, chain ourselves to the computer,but so many of us also have family and other jobs and duties to attend to.So besides taking the photos in the first place, we then have to download, sort, run through lightroom, play in photo shop, edit some more, touch up, upload, check at 100% for focus, then keyword! PHEW!... continue reading

For Nikon D800 users

Hello everybody, I just wanted to share an experience I had with DT that took me a while to figure out.I have been uploading RAW files taken with a Nikon D300 as additional format with every submission with no problems. It was after I started using a Nikon D800 with the "uncompressed RAW" setting when I could not upload files on this format anymore.After sending several inquiries to Costumer support and not getting a valid response or solution, it occur to me that maybe there's a "limit on... continue reading

resolution a big deal

I have been very fortunate with my relatively small portfolio and I actually just passed the 50 upload mark.I am very curious to know and hear opinions about the resolution of images in general.The majority of my photos are 6.1 megapixels.Does this lower resolution affect buyers decisions?I see images in a wide range but rarely see them below 8 megapixels.I am going to keep uploading.I understand that the quality of images that I produce is very important.I will keep improving,... continue reading
