Let’s assume you are a simple propane salesman and you desperately need a picture of a hot dog. You go to your favorite stock site, dreamstime.com, and find an image of a tasty looking hot dog. You are then given a bunch of options for download: A JPEG, PNG and a TIFF. Why are there so many different options? Before talking about specific file types, let’s talk about compression. Bandwidth isn’t free, so transmitting huge bitmap files isn’t very efficient. Most image files employ some form... continue reading

I was so delightfully surprised when I checked my Dreamstime account to see that my balance had jumped up by $18.98. I was further surprised that it was the purchase of one of my editorial images.I turned to my friend and thanked her for her guidance long ago when I first started uploading photos on Dreamstime.We were at the Los Angeles County Fair, and I was in possession of my little Lumix camera.Feeling a bit challenged with the prospect of trying to take commercial photos at the Fair,... continue reading
I can say that I'm pleasantly surprised to announce my first 2 sales, after only one month on Dreamstime. I didn't expect to be found by customers so fast, considering my small portfolio of 200 images.The first one it was a small format with 5 credits And I am proud to say that the second sale, a winter image, it was a tiff format, much more credits ;) Now I have my fuel to continue my uploads with Dreamstime. continue reading

(Because sprinkles make things extra happy) continue reading

Just as I was thinking my sales were slow this month compared to the previous three, I found this morning that I had sold two TIFF extended licenses (W-EL & P-EL) for the same image:I think it's probably the same buyer, which seems unusual. Has anyone else had this experience?Thank you to the buyer! continue reading
I just login today and seen a change in my earnings balance. It is because I have sold my second TIFF image. I remember I was in vineyard while I have taken this TIFF sold photo of old rusty nails. It really feels good when you have a bigger sale then usual. I would like to know where this image will be used. Buyer has used "nails old" keywords to find my image.I got 10$ for this sale, and I feel great, specialy because my last six sales was subscription sales, so this is a boost to my earnings... continue reading
I was so pleased to see one of my image being downloaded as TIFF! If I know where this image would show-up (may be on a cover of a magazine or something), it would be so encouraging! To be honest, after I had about 20 images approved including the one that was downloaded as TIFF, I had lost interest as I had just 2 sells. But after that TIFF sell, I have became more active and have uploaded a bunch of images with different subjects. In February, I got almost 25 images approved, and now I am at 53... continue reading
