The Dreamstime Companion is designed for both pro photographers and amateurs, allowing them to instantly upload and share images from mobiles
Dreamstime is hoping with this new launch to inspire photographers of all kinds to submit images that have an ‘in the moment’ look.
Stock firm Dreamstime currently has more than 8-million users.
Serban Enache, Dreamstime’s CEO and co-founder, said, ‘While the mobile app provides plenty of rich, powerful data, it’s still quite simple and extremely easy to use.
‘Users can upload 3MP and higher images directly from their smartphones, without significant knowledge of the stock photography market. We kept the process as simple as possible, so anyone can participate and share their own photographic skill with an enormous audience.’

Enache also said that the firm encourages users to submit images from Instagram, Pixlr and other popular photo apps.
Dreamstime photographers retain the copyright for their images, and can earn up to $12 per license.
