Checking if and where your images have been on used is probably the biggest addiction and satisfaction for the microstock photographer (ok, after checking your earnings balance ;) And since the reverse Google image search is the go to place for this, I found a great extension for people who use the Safari browser.

I admit I'm a numbers person - have been since a very early age. Loved math, love statistics and love sport with statistics.Looking at the Dreamstime numbers at the bottom of the page we have (at the time of typing):29,284,827 images9,744,832 usersAssuming users are all contributors that works out at an average of 3 images per contributor.3 images!Is that all?

Hello everybody, I just wanted to share an experience I had with DT that took me a while to figure out.I have been uploading RAW files taken with a Nikon D300 as additional format with every submission with no problems. It was after I started using a Nikon D800 with the "uncompressed RAW" setting when I could not upload files on this format anymore.After sending several inquiries to Costumer support and not getting a valid response or solution, it occur to me that maybe there's a "limit on... continue reading
Hello,Last month i decided i wanted to part from my old Canon 400D and its kit lens. Now I face one big decision: which Canon body should become my "new partner in crime"?At the moment my options are the follwing:1. Canon 7D2. Canon 5D mark II3. Canon 6D (which will soon be available for sale).Now I know, the first one is a crop camera and the second and third one are full frame cameras. You can now buy a new 7D camera for quite a good price and although it is a crop camera it has... continue reading

Plenty of you will be advanced in Inkscape but some who are still learning, like myself, will hopefully find these tutorials helpful.Be warned, most are videos so you need quite a lot of bandwidth.As my bandwidth has increased substantially for the next year I've been able to go through Video tutorials and have learned so much.So I wanted to share what I had found.http://www.cuttwopieces.com/search/label/InkscapeCarolyn, the lady in the videos, is very thorough with her instructions.... continue reading

A blog dedicated to my experiences using both Sony and Minolta and 3rd party lenses on my Sony DSLR's (A350 and A700).I hope to provide some insight into what kinds of newer as well as older lenses are good for stock photography.For example, this image below was taken with my A700 and a Minolta MD 50mm F1.7 with a macro MD-AF adapter and a +4 diopter.The whole set-up cost me about 50.00 and does a pretty good job with macro images.This one was shot at F22.For those who want a decent... continue reading
