Hi, guys.I joined Dreamstime from 2010. I can not say i made a fortune. Only $ 1.711.That is about $28,5/month. Hm... you can not feed your family from that money.

As a graphic designer, when I am searching for images to use in my work, I am not satisfied unless I can find a photo that is high resolution and appropriate for print.
