Now if only they make more sales, they would be the perfect agency. How can you not love this agency though. What a lovely gesture...

I haven't uploaded there in ages as sales were so weak, but I'll be uploading this weekend - and I'd encourage anyone on twitter to retweet their announcement. They are at least trying to help, unlike the fat cat tossers at #Shutterstock...

I gotta say for me Dreamstime has been "hot" (relatively speaking, of course) of late.

THREE ELs in the last months at DT. They don't pay nearly as much as SS used to, just $13, but if enough of them come in it's a lot better than $.36 at SS with almost no ELs in sight.

And I get a lot of $2 sales at DT, also.

So overall, I've been happy to have a portfolio there. And I definitely will keep building it going forward.

If only video prices were higher... for 4K downloads they pay around what other sites pay for HD...

Put it all over public social media, not just twitter. Also all private stock groups and circles. And recommend them to customers.

They are a small agency, so giving us more money must really hurt them, but they are doing it anyway to give us hope.

They WERE doing quite well back in like '14

I still upload there even though sales have been low because DT has always been relatively fair. They purposefully cycle their search to ensure a fair shake for contributors. So for a week I get a lot of $2-5 dis and then that is followed by subs. I used to make $200 a month there but now I am * lucky to make $30. I wish they had better video pricing too.

A noble and appreciated marketing action, but still a marketing action

Smart move by Dreamstime! They say they want to help during this pandemic trying times but I feel it is more a response to Shutterstock new earning structure. Hopefully more agencies will act fast to destabilize Shutterstock even more.

This is really a great move, but am I the only one who finds the timing incredibly....convenient? Shutterstock announced a cut of our royalities and two days later Dreamstime announces a rise in royalities? Does seem a bit like an attempt to gain some publicity and customers and attrackt as many contributors who are possibly leaving Shuttersock at the same time?
Either way, I am not looking a gift horse in the mouth (too closely) and am happy about the increase in rocalities either way, whatever the motives.

Great news! When the pandemic started i was expecting agencies to react with some sort of bonus to contributors. Hopefully more will follow DT's example.

Never  look  a gift horse in the mouth  ;D

Considering that shuttersucks never gave us a raise and neither did isuck/getty any increase is welcome

I just had the fun of deleting on my profile here the link to my SS account and adding a link to my DT account.

Adis, Shutterstock! Don't let the door hit you!

I never stopped uploading to DT. Though sales aren't what they used to be glad I stayed with them.

Great Move DT.

A lot of sympathy for Dreamstime here. My favorite underdog agency.
However sales are really slow compared to the bigger ones, at least they give you a respectable RPD with lots of 2$ or more commissions.

I hope they can survive and increase their market share.

Always had a soft spot for them. They seem to sell more of the images I like myself rather than my tawdry "me too" pot boilers ;-)
