Designers I Hope That This Will Help You.

I am well on the way to sorting my photos into managed collections on my photographer profile page, I hope that this will help the designers to find what they need quicker.It was actually easier to do than I though, once I had opened two browser windows at the same time and then typed in the ID numbers from my list of accepted files.My managed collections are on the right side of this page and I will be updating them often.https://www.dreamstime.com/Steveacer_info#res8462901   continue reading
