Did you do a search for Vintage Sepia?

Do you know anyone with a program like Photoshop from which you will be able to turn any color image into sepia? That way you can control the exact sepia tones you want and the images will be consistent from image to image.

Hi there, apologies but I don't really understand what kind of images you are actually looking for. Retro-looking frames perhaps, to use on the website the way you are showing?

Also, I am not sure how you can apply the vintage/ retro feel to your list. Vintage-style applicative and embedded software? Retro-looking RSS? Not sure. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the list?

I really would like to help so it would be great if someone could explain.

Thank you

We are a webdevelopment company offering services like Search Engine Optimalization, Webmarketing, Webdesign, Content management system, etc. For every service (see above list) I am looking for apropriate vintage-retro
images like https://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-image-photo-book-vintage-style-website-image18518536 based on earth tones -> brown is the main color of our corporate style who all fit together.

Can you help me finding those images?

Tnak you.

You've stated the same info in both requests but this is confusing because you are asking for "vintage" photos and your example and site is modern and deals with technology. The example is not vintage, only toned in browns. Again, can you find the images you need in color? You can very simply convert those images to brown tones to give them a vintage look, but the images you probably want are not strictly vintage. Vintage usually refers to something old, not an antique but not modern. Are you really just looking for modern concept images in brown tones?

How can we help you when you are not helping us with understanding your request? What exactly do you need?

Matthias2401 was very clear in his request, and the example shown is very suggestive.
Please see the comp image if you are having trouble understanding what exactly his company needs, but it actually looks vintage in the thumbnail too. So they need a vintage representation of these modern subjects. It's not an usual request, but it can be done.

So, if you can find/provide/create such images or graphics, please contact support and ask for priority review.

Thank you.

I've done a quick search of the DT database, and there are several types of images that might fit what you are looking for. I'll post a few examples. Let us know which ones are closer to what you are looking for. None of these images are mine; they are just ones that I've found.

Vintage/Retro could make us think of several completely different things. It could be

Older Technology:
   Search engine optimization SEO   

   Laptop Cowboy   

   Grunge Texture Background SEO Certified Stamp   
   Search engine optimization scheme   

Steam Punk:
   Steampunk grunge media player   
   Steampunk Internet tablet   

Subdued Colors, but Modern:
   Binary Abstract with Figure   
   Image not available or id is incorrect.   
   Technology Industrial Network Abstract   

Just Brown:
   Old web icons   
   Website Template 55   

Also, are you looking for large images for major portions of the website? Do you want small icons? Do you want filler images to be placed near your content? All of these?

Let us know, and we'll try to do what we can to help you get the types of images you are looking for.

I believe Matt is looking for ready-made web pages with specific looks, subjects, and colors.

Would be better to purchase appropriate images and build the rest in-house.

Are you talking about posting an image in the Dreamstime forum? Or, are you talking about doing something on your own website with an image you have purchased?

An image I purchased on dreamstime and I would like to post on my website with link, title and alt text.

You'll need to first upload the image to your webserver and note the URL of the image.

If you have access to the HTML, use the anchor tag to reference that URL. Information on how to do this can be found easily via your favorite search engine. It is easy to do, but it is difficult for me to type in this forum since HTML code gets filtered out. Here is one link on how to use the anchor tag.

If you are using a Content Management System or WYSIWYG site builder that hides the HTML from you, you'll need to go through that particular software's method of adding a link.

Here is another site with a specific HTML example of using an image as a link. See step #4 for adding the alt text.
