Was this announced at DT?

In their search, DT images return with a link to them.  However I tried to find some of my images and they don't come up.


-=-=-=-=- Photos Now In the Vault on

I didn't see any announcement.

It's interesting that the site is splattered with Dreamstime ads - all flashing banners about "Free photos". However, all the images they show in the banner are not free. I recognize images from Yuri Arcurs, Iryna Kurhan, etc. Great images, and good advertising for the site, but not really truth in advertising, IMHO.

The search engine isn't all that great (unless I'm missing something). If you search for mature woman, that appears to be done as mature OR woman and two of the Dreamstime shots that appear are of a man (where there's no woman keyword, i.e. it's not spam). At the very least, even if it is doing an "or" search, you'd think it'd show any images which had both keywords ahead of any that had only one.

Also, if you click on the search link (versus one of the Dreamstime images directly) it takes you to Dreamstime but doesn't do the search for you - which you'd think it should so people could see more than the first strip of results.

Wow. I entered by mistake and this took me to, which links back to a lot of sites I've never heard of, and our friends Lucky Oliver.
