Does anyone notice if a download comes from instead of Dreamstime? I was reading the court case and saw the part where DT said they opened a new agency to direct more traffic to their site.

Just wondering if we see any difference or if it's just the same either place.

I did search for one of my new uploads by date on and there I was, first on the first page.

Mine are in megapixl too but so far I have earned between 0.24 and 0.35 per download. Except when they use credits or the picture it's exclusive. (1-2 usd). Not sure if they came from megapixl

I know nothing about Megapixl but my images appear not to be there. I did searches for some of mine (comparing with a Dreamstime search in another tab, you can see that only a fraction of the DT collection is at Megapixl)

Apparently three years ago I found out about them from a post here and contacted DT to ask what was up. If you read their reply, I guess what I wrote just now means my view of things hasn't changed in three years :)

My rant about Megapixl written before I did a search to see how long they'd been around, etc.:

"I had opted out of third party partnerships - because I don't want to share buyer money with multiple agencies - which I have to assume is why my work isn't there. However Megapixl isn't a third party - it's Dreamstime itself.

DT's sales are so pitiful it probably doesn't matter either way, but wholly-owned sites are not the same as third party partnerships and shouldn't be governed by opt-out choices made for third parties. Does anyone else remember when 123rf tried to claim that Inmagine was a third party and that entitled them to an extra share of the buyer payment? They backed down after everyone fussed, but does anyone know if DT is taking a partnership cut from the buyer's price when there's a sale on Megapixl? You have to hope that this scammery wouldn't happen twice, but if there's no marking "

A mind is a terrible thing to waste :)
