I have published six books on Amazon over the past 12 months and have used Dreamstime art as the basis for every book cover. Regrettably, I no longer have the Dreamstime reference numbers to match the photos but the Kindle book covers can be seen on the Amazon site, using the link http://goo.gl/hR3iz

Thanks for letting our contributors know where their images are being used. If you want to match the photos, you can check your download archive and retrieve their Dreamstime ID numbers from there. The download archive can be accessed either from the management area or the top right side of the screen/Account stats area:

Again, we appreciate this.

I make customized prayerbooks for Jewish events, mostly Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and weddings. Dreamstime is my favorite place to get gorgeous images for the covers. Whenever a customer has a theme in mind, I send them to Dreamstime and let them search as much as they want, with the understanding that one image is included in their order. Israel and other Jewish images are especially popular, and nature, but all kinds of things work for different families.

My website has assorted sample covers, many of them from Dreamstime: www.customsiddur.com

Here are some of the ID's I've used (many more than once):
24126806, 25521210, 10971027, 23563614, 13258665, 22048669, 13241073, 7179950, 9634776, 13315743, 2928171, 6639747, 8366229, 14433195, 12100471, 1510276, 14294825, 12183179, 5004645, 9922616, 10009809, 3075629, 3579781, 6110532, 4068991, 5662084, 2639226, 5935414, 3375491, 4805544, 3702297, 3588132, 366591, 221273, 348103, 532107

I have just submitted a cover for the third book in my Queen of Scots Suite. I did the first one, my son's art is on the second, but on the third and fourth I am using two of Darja Vorontsova photos; I plan to use a cover from Dreamstime on book five, although I have not decided between two candidates.

I used female-pastor-finding-something-shocking-bi-image13059139 for the cover of my first book, "Things I Never Learned in Sunday School." It was purchased by my cover designer with my approval.

The book is in eBook format (with a paperback version coming soon) and can be seen in the Amazon Kindle Store.

Thanks Scott Griessel for your talent!

I found the perfect picture from dreamstime for my latest book. Last Respects is a wonderful photo and depicts exactly what I was looking for. Here is the link showing the picture, which I modified slightly for the cover.


Thank you to msphotographic and dreamstime. :)

I used a graphic by Frenta for the cover of my thriller novel "Isle of Beasts". I also credited Frenta on my copyright page. The book is available for digital download and in paperback on Amazon. Thank you, Frenta and Dreamstime, for the awesome service.

I am publishing 2 books on Amazon Kindle and found 2 terrific images on your site that I am using for cover photo. I would like to congratulate the photographers for these creative and startlingly different photos that are perfect for my books.

File ID-s are: 31024938 and 18113642

One book is already published and it is a collection of poetry. The image can bee seen at:

The other is going to be about Physics and will be published soon.
