Increase your visibility between professionals – be unique

I don’t have many downloads to make a serious statistics, but so far my best images are the unique ones. I started with painting. My paintings are pure exploration of world of colors and shapes, exploration of my inner world, my emotions and sensations. They all are the abstract paintings. But I wasn't satisfied.

New on Dreamstime, will be grateful to get some tips!

Hi everyone!I'm quite new on Dreamstime.

For example, I have a glass of milk, if someone has a food or drinks collection could ad ot it, I have a objects isolated in black or white collection, if you have objects with no views I can add them.

Understanding search engine visibility

Recently I spent some time to do a descent research to improve my (today's and future) image visibility. DT web site is very well optimized for search engines (SEO). This means that whatever we do with our image title, description and keywords (along with other elements) is reflecting our image visibility, not just on DT but worldwide. Believe it or not, images are known worldwide and can be found over Google, Yahoo, MSN and others. I mostly refer to Google in following article.Considering Google... continue reading
