Site feature I never found until now:

Call me stupid (well actually I'd rather you didn't) but after over a year on Dreamstime I have only just discovered a feature which will make my submission process easier and keep my blood pressure down.

My problem has always been the "Auto Continue" feature. I like to select the next image to work on myself but AC just brings up the oldest image from the Unfinished Images pool. You can disable this but it works so fast that I usually cannot click it in time.

The answer (for anyone that doesn't already know) lies on your management page under the "site features" section. There is a box called "edit re-direct time" with (in my case) a default time of 5 seconds. Just delete this and type in a longer time of your choice. I can now disable AC without knocking my coffee flying in the dash.

I hope this helps others as I cannot be the only contributor here not to have known about this feature (I hope). Regards, David.

I have a large archive of celebrity photographs (especially politicians) from late 1980's to the 1990's. Mainly British subjects such as Margaret Thatcher but with some international figures such as Boris Yeltsin and Lech Walesa. More recent images include travel images of Croatia and several Greek islands such as Agistri, Paxos, Halki, Symi, Meganissi, Nisyros, Alonissos, Skiathos and Skopelos.I also have images of British events including the famous Jack In The Green festival in Hastings and the Eastbourne airshow.
