“One of the best Stocksite”

Written on: 10/01/2012 by shamtor (1 review written)

I like the professional approach they have, the uploading , quite fast, just the pop up remain in front of you during the upload. The catalog is really amazing with great professional photographers whom upload constantly, I'm between these, still improving mine portfolio and skill, but with the blog in the site, I'm doing fast. Now I'm exploring the editorial part of this business to see if there is a market for mine street photography… Read Full Review

“Dreamstime is the BEST!!!!”

Written on: 06/01/2012

I started using Dreamstime a few months ago after a friend showed me the website. Well, that did it I became addicted from the word 'Go', I bought myself a good camera and started snapping, nothing escaped my camera, I had a lot of knock backs but soon started learning how to create a stock photo and continue learning as I get more and more excepted. I love the fact that anything goes really, my creative side is really blossoming now, there is nothing I really don't like about Dreamstime. I was… Read Full Review

“Best Stock Photo Website”

Written on: 29/12/2011 by rondnor (1 review written)

My company, Progressive Element, develops online businesses and web sites. We use stock photos often. We've used several different stock photos in the but since learning of DreamsTime it became our favorite. It has a great selection of images, easy to use interface, and very reasonable prices. I highly recommend it… Read Full Review

“Best stock agency of all!”

Written on: 23/12/2011 by TamaraBauer (1 review written)

I have been a contributor on Dreamstime since December 2010, so still relatively new, but my first year has been a wonderful, positive experience. They have fantastic images, great prices and the best and fairest commission for contributors, especially those who decide to go exclusive - 60%! Aside from that, they are simply a really great bunch of people to be working with and the CEO, Serban Enache, is just the nicest, most down to earth guy who shows a genuine interest in the company's… Read Full Review

“Great stock photos - easy to work with, too!”

Written on: 23/12/2011 by offthewallsocial (1 review written)

Dreamstime is my go-to place for free stock photography as they have a large selection, and a wide variety. Downloads are SUPER easy and fast. I'm very pleased with the quality and selection of the free photographs on Dreamstime. I always check them first before checking any other stock photo service. But Dreamstime isn't just a great place for free photos. The price per download and subscription costs are extremely reasonable for all the photos available on Dreamstime, especially for such… Read Full Review

I am comfortable working with Dreamstime.com. The staff is friendly and very competent. Time evaluation of the images is not too long, and more importantly high quality standards. Thanks to the advice of the staff, I understand how to improve the technique of my work.

“Great resource for designers!”

Written on: 15/12/2011 by dmaria79 (1 review written)

This is a great site for reasonably priced, high quality illustrations and photos. As a designer, finding the right image is crucial, and I always find exactly what I need. I have used other stock photo sites in the past, but find that Dreamstime has the most to offer. The site is also the easiest to navigate and find what I am looking for. The "free" section is amazing too!… Read Full Review

“A fabulous place for creative illustrators and...”

Written on: 15/12/2011

I have been an illustrator for Dreamstime a while now; here are the things that I like about Dreamstime: 1. Uploading illustrations is an easy process 2. I can submit my illustrations upto maximum 70 megapixels as raster and EPS10 for vector. 3. I can upload by a java plugin in the browser or by FTP. 4. Once images are submitted, I get an estimated time to review, which doesn't keep me waiting. 5. I can easily go back and edit keywords and other info about my images because I always forget some… Read Full Review

“Customer Service”

Written on: 15/12/2011

I wanted to use the site for purely personal reasons, to upload tractor photos/images to use for transfers for t-shirts for my grandson. When it came to filling out the registration form I got stuck; didn't have a website and was unsure as to whether or not I could use the site without licensing the images I chose to upload. My e-mail to Customer Service was answered with great speed by Tom who explained exactly how to complete for form and how to handle the upload. He used words of one… Read Full Review

“Good customer service help”

Written on: 14/12/2011 by Educate4Life (1 review written)

I work with the education department of a non-profit organization. I needed access to free photographic images for use in our training presentations. I contacted dreamstime.com for help with understanding what I could or could not use for distribution (both sale and not) for our instructors on the field. The customer service team, and specifically the individual who communicated with me, was very professional and helpful in answering my questions. I appreciate the quick replies to my questions… Read Full Review

“Fabulous photos to choose from”

Written on: 14/12/2011

I love the selection of photos and artwork available from this site. I can usually find what I'm looking for. They're easy to upload and the quality is great. My only caveats are surrounding the pricing and the ease of figuring out how many downloads you get for the cost. The prices here are higher than at a few equivalent stock photo sites. I'd love it if they brought back their one week package or even a three day one, for those of us who don't need massive numbers of photos. And their… Read Full Review

“I'm so glad I double checked Dreamstime before...”

Written on: 13/12/2011 by couponsnob (1 review written)

I am releasing a new eBook in a couple of weeks. When I was ready to begin buying images for my book, I took a look at two other stock photo sites I have used before. I had actually decided on a different site, purchased credits and was ready to buy my images. I wanted to make sure I was getting the best images for the best price, so I hesitated and decided to double check Dreamstime. I ended up getting a refund from the other site, and buying credits at Dreamstime, using all of their imagery… Read Full Review

“One more challage:)”

Written on: 13/12/2011 by Grossman (1 review written)

I love challenges, so when I've discovered Dreamstime I've say to my self... o very nice one more challenge to complete. I've started by reading articles from Dreamstime blog then organize my photo archive. The first steps where very hard for me to make cause i had a Sonny DSC-P73 and very small knowledge of Photoshop and Lightroom. But after getting a job like a photographer assistant all started to go better and better. After I've sold my first pictures ( had online almost 100 ) it started… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/12/2011 by Godfer (1 review written)

Dreamstime, quite simply get it right! They have a no nonsense, approachable, communicative and professional business approach to all aspects of their company! They have great respect and give valid support to their members at all time. Any problems that I have seen arise on their forums have been dealt with in the most professional, calm and discrete manner. They have a brilliant system of rewarding individual quality photos which gives everyone that takes this business serious a chance to… Read Full Review

“Dreamstime Microstock Review”

Written on: 26/11/2011 by vwimage (1 review written)

Dreamstime are one of the top Microstock agencies online today. I was lucky enough to find them in 2009 when looking for an avenue to display and sell my photos. Free to join, they accept images on an individual image basis, making it easier than other agencies to get a start. I find them very professional and admin are always helpful. It is a community based company and the forums & blogs are a great way for both contributors and designers to find advice and information on every aspect of… Read Full Review

Vwimage's Response to vwimage's Review

Written on: 26/11/2011

Unfortunately part of my review was cut off at the end after I had posted it. I would just like to finish off by sayinig I would highly recommend Dreamstime to anyone considering selling images online. Although I can only speak as a contributor, not a buyer, I hope to spend many more happy years in the Dreamstime community.
