I know there are lots of photographers out there like me who worked very hard to take a shot and loved it the most. But when reviewed it on their laptop or PC before submission to the site, felt lack of DETAILS in that shot and went into frustration over the result of hard work. As most of the photographers don't know the exact method to increase the Details by Sharpening the images so that it does not produce unnecessary noise and other unwanted things due to the sharpness.

I decided to write my very first DreamsTime blog after I got my first 100 online, so here's the one -- my key steps in DT:I bought a NIKON D80 this year and happen to know my first microstock site DreamsTime in a BBS, then I registered here on January 19, 2009.At that time I have no idea what stock photography is like, so my acceptance ratio drops dramatically, I even didn't notice there is such a ratio in DT until I can only upload 3 images a day.
