I have been with Dreamstinme since the early 2006, I have had images withy other sites that promised the world and delivered nothing.
My images from that time are still being licensed, they pay on time and if the images you have with them are exclusive you get a better %.

Not only no but kcuf no. I have about 4500 images there. I make $10-30 a month there.

how is the uploading process there compared to other agencies? Can you caption and keyword the images in the actual file in photo mechanic and then just simply submit them?

To be the 10,047th person to say this, (but the first in this post.... ) now if they would only lower payouts.  There was a time when I could get a couple $100 payouts a month, but now it's about twice a year.

I had a of the yummy sub sales today, three at $2.20 and one at $2.     That little increase of 60 cents on top of the old price sure beats 6 sub sales at SS.

Some recent sales of mine appear to have the increased royalty too: 2,20$ instead of 2$ and 0,38$ instead of 0,35$. It's a little "step", but a step in the right direction at least.

About the monthly income, with ~900 vectors I earn around 20-40$/month, so it's not much, but I choose to contribute as I like their system (highest RPD across all agencies), feel respected and treated fairly.

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...

While I did + this, I'm looking at the announcement as 1) offering me a much bigger share of nothing, and a 2) nice move on DTs part to capitalize on the SS dissatisfaction and bring back or invite people.

Whether it really makes more for any of use, it's still welcome.

Myself, if something WAS rejected by SS and Adobe, I'd then upload as exclusive to DT. At this point that's going to be, if something is rejected by Adobe?  ;)

During the whole year I read only quite negative comments about Dreamstimes...
And suddenly it would have become the best microscock agency in the world...


Yeah, odd how that swinging door works in Microstock.  ;D Until the SS announcement, people were putting down Adobe as not being the answer, and called out for saying Adobe had the best future. That swung too?

DT makes me very little. I hardly upload anything. See above, what I do is images I think have potential and are worth the extra time to put on DT as Exclusive. A couple of them have worked, I'm happy. I don't intend to say that the new plan will add more income and volume is pretty low.

I won't say anything negative about any increase?  8)

If DT wanted to do something useful, they would lower their minimum payout.  With all the competition, $100 is too high.

WAAYYYY too high
They should switch it to $25 with the volume of sales they produce

I FTP'd some uploads up this afternoon and was very pleasantly surprised by

1. How much simpler they've made the submission process and

2. How quickly the images were approved (I'm guessing they had hoped this might be the result of their royalty increase)....



i had the same reaction - i had stopped uploading til someone here mentioned the process had been streamlined, so i've returned, too

I'm getting more and more sales on DT than ever the last couple of days (according to StockSubmitter), but for some reason my DT statistics page doesn't update...Anyone else who has the same problem?

Edit: never mind, it's a server delay according to the DT forum admin.

Lots of sales in last 4-5 days, like in the old days. Still far from covering SS lose, but atm it looks promising.

I've noticed that increase in sales on DT, too. (And actually, the same is happening with my portfolio on AS.)

Fingers crossed for the change to continue and be permanent!

I am seeing an increase (it's still slow though). It's hard to tell if that's because I uploaded a huge backlog over the last weekend in May or if it's the absence of the files on Shutterstock.

No, but Dreamstime is so good they give us 10% more on the 10 - 20 images we sell every month
