What do you like best?

I like the range of different clip art to choose from. I can easily find the particular type of clip art that I am looking for. The quality of images is one of the reasons I keep coming back. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the clip art contain the watermark that you can not remove. However, I understand given how some people don't give proper image credit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I would definitely try out Dreamstime for your clip art needs. It has helped me out when I need to find images quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like getting stock photos to use on website designs, social media, and content marketing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The sheer variety of images is a spectacle to behold. Whether it's nature photos, vector stock, banners for sales, patterns, whatever it may be, I have been able to find it on Dreamstime with ease. Prices are more than fair across the board. Some images are such amazing quality for the price, it really gives other stock sites a run for their money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A few more lower cost monthly plan options, or a cheaper per image purchase would be nice. Overall, not a huge deal as I am still more than happy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With costs this reasonable, just give them a try. You are hard-pressed to find an image on there you won't fall in love with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Promotions have been made easier to put together as well as more eye-catching because of images we have used from Dreamstime. The direct benefit is obviously being able to grab the attention of a potential customer, or entice an existing customer to come back. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Basic free photos for download. Well segmented categories for just about every need you may have. Very clearly states to be careful of using images where people can be identified because model releases may not have been signed. Fast website for downloading. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Many free photos are outdated. They are FREE so it's good anyway. You just have to wade through lots of outdated elements in images to find useful ones. Compare to others on price and the selection of photos. I find the price rather high and packages/quantity per month for the price not really meeting our needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's an additional resource for free and paid stock photos. Compare to alternatives before buying images here. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benefits: free images, fast and easy to search. Used Dreamstime much more often several years ago when there were less options for free stock images. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

They offer a 7 days free trial where you can download 5 pics for free. That's possibly the best feature of this site. Apart from that, there's nothing really I like about it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The quality of the stock images is poor. The site is not very user friendly and the account section to cancel looks like it has been developed by a 5 year old. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to cancel your trial pro-actively as it's very hard to do on their website and you don't want to be charged for a year in advance. Keep records of all communications with them just in case. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No benefits at all. There are better providers and services out there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The quality of the video, photography and illustration content is superior to other stock. The search features are also fast, intuitive and refined. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Instead of allowing you to purchase one image, they make you buy X amount of monthly downloads which expire. A competitor stock site that we also used to recently changed their credit plan to single image purchase which I prefer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just stay unique, it's hard to compete with Shutterstock iStock and Getty, among many other, but they do a great job keeping up with the quality they offer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like the best about Dreamstime is the fact that you can get amazing images for as low as $0.20. That's an awesome price and it allows us to buy more than we could from other stock image sites. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It can take a fews minutes to download the stock images sometimes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Customer care is great. There is one Kimberly who seem to be quite knowledgeable. I had no reservations about purchasing after a few exchange of emails. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I somehow don't understand if individual images have no price tag offered, how to put a price to a lot. I am worried if they change membership fee a lot earlier, as many guys complained about the same. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Its nice software once you've the feel of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
