Here is a snippet from the DT thread:

"The image details page had a face-lift. We tried to make it more organized and easier to read the information. When entering the page, the buyer would first see the image, the royalty free prices and lots of thumbs related to the initial image (for more options). He/she gets from one glimpse all the information he/she needs to quickly decide if that's the image he wants or not.

The second tab holds the prices for the extended licenses.

All the other features like image operations (add comment, add to lightbox, add to collection etc) or referral links were grouped together on the third tab: Tools.

For easier access, the tab defaults to the last used for the next image you browse within the same visit. (e.g if you leave a comment, using the tools tab, the same tab will be open by default on the next image you browse, making it easier to download, comment etc)."


Here is the whole thread:

looks like a nice thing as long as the  buyer doesn't get lost.  There are so many tabs inside tabs inside other windows on dreamstime that sometimes I get lost in the pages.  A new buyer might find it hard to navigate but those who know their way around would probably find it helpful.

I agree.  You also have to wonder why so many sites make drastic changes during the Christmas rush season!?!  Why not wait until January to implement all of these new upgrades?

maybe they think the changes will increase sales.

I don't see this as being that big of a chance. Not one that should confuse the buyers at least.

On every image I looked at, between the license tabs and the sizes, it said, "Error: Unknown Cipher blowfish"

I guess that everyone is always optimistic about software releases, but the reality is that even the smallest change in the software code can manifest plenty of unforeseen errors.

Was this there before?  I looked at one of my own files and it showed similars... then immediately following it showed "More images from Pixart's portfolio".  It only showed my most recent, most popular would be nice  :) still nice to see though.

I think that the "More images from..." area is new.  I like it as well but would rather have it show my similar images, instead of my most recent.

What should be under "Royalty free" tab, above the size vs prices?  I get a animation (like it's downloading timer) and then an error msg: "Error: Unknown Cipher blowfish".

Regards,
Adelaide

Interestingly enough, DT has added a new feature that will show you the keywords used for an image that was purchased.  At first glance, this seems to be a very useful feature.  Although, it won't help if you don't have good keywords in the first place.

Here are the details:

What do you guys think about this?

I just noticed it this morning watching my downloads and it's really useful. It's also in the agency own interest to help us to find the best and more relavant keywords, insatisfied and bored customers go elsewhere.

Erf, That is a suggestion I made in the LuckyOliver's Odditorium, 5 months ago.
Look at here : http://www.luckyoliver.com/odditorium/post/568/sale_information...
I believed that LO was the place for innovation but...

I am really happy that it is at last done by one site. Well played Dreamstime !
I think that in the past times, microstock websites had to have big pockets. In the future, they have to prove they have got a heart (and ears...)  ;)

Wow, what an awesome feature!!  If only the other sites would do this.

Great! A very innovative feature! I saw that half of my sales at DT came from just one single keyword, and that the keyword isn't necessary related to the image bought. My mature lesbian couple was sold by the keyword man.

I don't think this new feature is working properly: one of my recent DLs an airplane image from the keywords "ski chalet"!

A thread on the DT forums says that you can get spurious results occasionally - someone does a search, sees an image of yours in the results, then looks at your portfolio and buys. The keyword for the search, which may not be in the image purchased, will show up in the earnings column.

Mine seem to be working correctly, and giving interesting info. In several cases only one of the keywords entered were in my list.

Yes, I read this before making my post. If ALL the shown search words aren't in the image's keywords, then they weren't used to directly find the image, and therefore should be listed differently or not at all.

Very interesting and useful feature from Dreamstime. I hope other agencies follow their footsteps.

wow, great and very useful feature for us photographers.  Hopefully other sites follow suit and hopefully they advance this feature so we can sort by our most popular keywords, or see a list of all the search terms an image has been purchased with.

Great feature. Very useful. Unfortunately, it says that my shot of a busy airport was found using the word mariachi. ;D
