“Time saving”

Written on: 02/12/2015 by JasminWatson (1 review written)

The huge choice of images saves our team lots of time and energy. Some of them are super affordable as well which is REALLY important for a Not-For-Profit like us… Read Full Review

“Very good value for money”

Written on: 15/11/2015 by monlou (1 review written)

We had to produce some materials to support teachers during curriculum reform and the "quota system" for a monthly fee was really convenient. The other sites I knew had no such plans and the cost of individual photos is always high. There was an interesting number of photos on the topics we wanted. We sometimes could not find exactly what we wanted but I still think it was very good. The project is now over but we will return to Dreamstime for sure… Read Full Review

“Expensive but no other good options”

Written on: 12/11/2015

I have yet to find a site that offers as many photos in as high of quality for my blogging needs. I do wish the photos were more affordable however. Many times I need to buy more credits but can't afford to buy in bulk. A lot of the images require far too many credits. So overall if the price were more affordable I would use it A LOT more but as of now, I only use when I absolutely have to. I have not had any issues with downloading as of yet which is a nice positive! I find a little too… Read Full Review

“Too much”

Written on: 09/11/2015 by dlkunze (1 review written)

Being a student and working with smaller businesses, the cost of the pictures are a bit high. I've found other sites where I can find comparable pictures for cheaper. I've bought some pictures from here because I had credit to use up, but once the credit is gone, I won't be using Dreamstime anymore… Read Full Review

“Worth the price!”

Written on: 14/10/2015 by hadevos (1 review written)

I use the images for making photo posters. Therefore very high resolution is necessary. Every time I am surprised how many photos of very good quality I can find on any subject I search for! I needed to decide carefully by which plan/subscription I wanted to pay for the images, in order to get a good price. It's not very cheap, but you get what you pay for! High quality, huge collection and images that you are legally allowed to use. Because of this site, I now prefer to get my images this… Read Full Review

“Affordable snaps”

Written on: 14/10/2015 by RaulHolt (1 review written)

On the upside: a lot of the images look like they have been taken buy and this works well for social media and less-commercial-looking companies. Pn the downside: I wanted to buy more pay-as-you-go credits than possible on their website and had to wait 5 minutes each time to buy in several goes which is frustrating when you have deadlines to meet. You'd think they not put a limit on how much you can buy. Once I had the images though they were perfect for what we needed. … Read Full Review

“Broad variety, but pricing not pleasant”

Written on: 07/10/2015 by ArJay12 (1 review written)

Quality good, information appropriate, but pricing is high and pricing structure bit confusing. The download glitched as well but worked well on the third attempt. A good baseline but I'm looking for something better. I would recommend with a warning… Read Full Review

“Deceitful wording when presenting the credit packages”

Written on: 05/10/2015 by CommunityFurnishings (1 review written)

The credit packages say, "11 credits ... up to 11 images." Then I try to purchase the smallest of the small size, 72 dpi, not print quality image and it costs 11 credits. So I paid $14.99 for a single, low resolution image. Nice. Will not be back. Then I believe the only option available to purchase that smallest "package" (which only buys less than 1 image) was to AUTO-subscribe to a MONTHLY package. Not human-friendly. Humans do not like being locked into long term, auto-renewal contracts… Read Full Review

“Ordering is confusing but the results are fantastic!”

Written on: 24/09/2015 by Stephaniec406 (1 review written)

I'm always hesitant to go to the site. I always forget the website name and forget how to download and order. The site could use a more streamlined approach to ordering - maybe bigger buttons. For a big website with lots of content, there should be a better way to buy. Once you get the pictures, they are beautiful, big, and have become the best form of marketing of our company. I really rely on this website but wish it was easier to organize, buy, and download… Read Full Review

“THE PRICING ARE NOT CLEAR”

Written on: 21/09/2015 by sakoM (1 review written)

Your photos are very good and of high quality but something is wrong with your psychological pricing. I recently needed some photos from the dreamstime. The price tag of $14.99 and it showed that I would get at least 11 photos. I felt cheated when they converted the photos to credits and I ENDED UP GETTING 2 PHOTOS which I disliked and I had no option than stopping using the services. ADVISE Be honest and clear of what a person will get with the value for money on every purchase made… Read Full Review

“Ancestry brought to life”

Written on: 10/09/2015 by ShaniaHolland436 (1 review written)

I have used Dreamtime photos for specfic requirements, I have researched my ancestry online and was suprised by what I found, I needed photos that were royality free to use on my ancestry site, I needed a charging Knight in armour on a horse and silhouettes of heads representing my long lost family in the years 1345-1845 when colour photos were none existent. I have also used Royalty free photos to be part of advertising leaflets depicting historic events in our country. Another interest of… Read Full Review

“It's my go to!”

Written on: 02/09/2015 by Levesque218 (1 review written)

Dreamstime is the best stock photo site for reasonable prices that I've found! I use them all the time in my design projects etc. The only thing I would recommend they work on enhancing is the search functions. Currently you need to search for key words, which is fine when you get used to how to search for what you're looking for. Overall I highly recommend them!… Read Full Review

“Just What I Needed”

Written on: 31/08/2015 by xnCameron430 (1 review written)

I've been using free images on Dreamstime for years, and have only occasionally used them for paid images. Recently I've found I need better quality photos for book covers and such like and though I've looked on a few other sites, I always come back to Dreamstime. The download isn't great at the moment - it used to be easy to save images wherever I wanted them but it seems to be more difficult now (maybe that's partly to do with Windows 10). The search facility too, is a little tedious… Read Full Review
