Well it was a matter of time before one agency closed the gap between RF photos and "press" type photos.

Now every stock photograph is a potential press photograph... Wonder what will be their reaction!

Papparazzi, grab your camera and get out!

Imho it's dumb to submit editorial images to Microstock-agencies and news related editorial even more.
Just another bad move from Dreamstime after the subscription-prison.

Finally newsworthy as newsworthy actually means.

I agree with that unless they apply a different pricing structure to it I don't see much point uploading editorial content a microstock site.

I don't have much experience with truly newsworthy images, but I believe it's more likely that an EL will be used, at least for printed editorial content?

Why? DT is just widening their customers base. SS has it already and I have some editorial there that sells like cake. It can only benefit the photogs, and that can't be said necessarily of the subscription move.

For real news, the approval process takes too long. But in the message of Achilles on the DT forum, he also mentioned educational and cultural shots in a general sense. We'll just have to see how their criteria evolve.

No thanks. 

I've been selling editorial photos at SS since the beginning (Sept. '05), and it's just not worth it.  My most important, historically significant editorial shot has only earned $10.95 since January 2006 (it's a photo of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger being sworn in at his inauguration).  I have since stopped uploading editorial photos to SS.  So until DT adds an opt out on subscriptions for editorial, all of mine will be headed to midstock and macrostock agencies.

I agree that if these pictures can be used for some kind of news journal... they must pay for the appropriate extended license
