Has anyone else had this happen? I've been on Dreamstime for 11 years and dutifully entering descriptive, non-spam titles. I also track sales quite obsessively using said titles to find the images in my database. Every once in a while, on Dreamstime only, I'll not be able to find a image in the database. Eventually I discover the reason is because someone at Dreamstime has changed the title. Usually the change isn't anything dramatic or terrible, but it stills irks me that someone has the authority to change a title without ever telling me it was being done!

An example from today:
Original title: Baby Black Bear (Ursus americanus) Against Grey
Changed title: Baby Black Bear Grey Backgrd

I searched both here and on Dreamstime's forums and found no one else has complained about this, so maybe it's just me. But the above change was made on an image in my husband's account and title changes happen in my own account just as often.


Thanks - Holly

This hasn't happened to me that I know of, but I wouldn't be happy if it did.   With wild life and plant shots, I always take the time to try to locate the Latin species name because some buyers might look for it and I feel it gives me a wee bit of a competitive advantage for some searches.  For some shots, that takes a bit of effort and I wouldn't like to do it for nothing.
