I like the way Dreamstime photography site is run overall. The pricing system is fair and gives every contributor a chance to make a buck or two. I just wished I understood the pricing a little better. I find the upload waiting time too long at times, and the selecting process does not seem very consistent. Acceptance seems to vary depending on the reviewer. Some go to the trouble of giving a more detailed personalized review. You can tell they are trying to help whereas some throw the same cut and paste(refusal) answer for vastly different pictures which does not help me much. The photography guidelines for beginners could use more details and photograph samples of rejected and improved-accepted photos (as on the Istock site). In conclusion, photos are of a high quality, and provide a wide variety of pictures that should satisfy any buyer. The site is easy to navigate and information is well presented and helpful. I would, and have recommended Dreamstime to my friends, not just out of self-interest. Dreamstime has a lot to offer.
