My Story, My Experiences Of One Year

Before I start my story I want to tell my fellow photographers that I am not good in English. Hope you all will forgive me for that.I joined DT on 7/12/2014. Those days I knew nothing about photography and still I am learning, and this is a never ending process. One keeps learning till the day they die.I uploaded a lot of photos after joining but most of them were rejected, yes few selected. This happened again and again. I than started concentrating on the reasons of rejection. There are reasons... continue reading

My First Submissions to Dreamstime

I think it was a web search that led me to Dreamstime originally, and that was when I first discovered this thing called microstock. I thought, OK, why not sort through all these photos that fill up my hard drive and see what I can add.At first that seemed like a simple idea, but actually it's a lot of time and effort. If your'e like me, you probably have thousands of photos from events, travels, and photos taken simply from the joy of wandering around and capturing life into a still. It takes... continue reading

Dreamstime iPhone app

Do you use it?From time to time I do. I can say, it's pretty good! But unfortunately it has several annoying bugs:1. If you have a call when attributing a photo and then you are back to proceed keywording you will find the photo submitted. And you can't change it then: cancel and resubmit only.    2. You can't pause your submission process (not a bug but a minus).     I would like to have lunch first, then finish the submission process.3. You can't change the attributes of... continue reading

Such a long reviewing time!

For some time now it seems that the ETR until my submissions are reviewed keeps growing day by day. The latest images had an ETR of 105 hours yesterday and now are at 115 hours. If the website is so overwhelmed with submissions they should consider hiring some new staff to make the reviewing process a lot faster. On other microstock sites the review process doesn't take more the 24-48 hours and not 1 week from submission! continue reading

Controversial: To Resubmit or Not After a Rejection?

I have seen many DT newcomers with questions and seeking advice. Not to say that I am the best person to bring up this topic, with my 51% acceptance ratio, but DT allows you to resubmit a photo after being rejected for a reason. There are multiple DT reviewers and they definitely are there to help you build your portfolio and succeed.The attach picture was previously rejected. Instead of taking it to heart I resubmitted it. Now with 18 downloads and $60 income, though it is not much of a photo,... continue reading
