I've been on Redbubble for quite awhile now. I upload new photos fairly regularly. I haven't had any sales at all on RedBubble. But I do know plenty of other photographers that sell their work pretty regularly. The biggest complaints I've heard about RedBubble are that it's a horribly designed website that is very dysfunctional, it is extremely clique-ish and almost impenetrable, groups have very stringent criteria for submissions which are heavily enforced for some users and completely ignored for others, and users don't leave a lot of meaningful comments. I do really like the group features on RedBubble. And the website is a very easy way to sell your artwork. So it's up to you if you'd like to try it out or not. I personally much prefer deviantART.com to RedBubble.com. While RedBubble does have better group features (which dA is promising new, better groups soon!) I think overall dA is a much better community. I've sold prints on dA which I haven't done on RedBubble. I think it's a lot easier to get your work noticed on dA, and you get better feedback on your work.

I agree. I like RedBubble and I get some fairly good responses, but I do think it's harder to promote your work there. I like Deviantart better overall definitely, but RedBubble does have some good promotional features.

Redbubble? After a year I sold...nothing! I have now canceled my subscription. Imagekind is a better bet, and I have a pretty regular stream of sales through Zazzle.com. My current favourite sales site is www.photoartgallery.com which I have only recently joined; it takes a completely different approach to selling photographic art and is worth looking into.

I've never heard of RedBubble or Deviantart. I'll check out Deviantart. Has anyone tried iStockPhoto, Shutterstock, or Fotolia?

In my opinion I don't recommend istock to anybody. There are a couple of other good ones out there. Try bigstockphoto.com

RedBubble is a site similar to Deviantart. You basically have a gallery and you can put prints up for sale in various mediums. It has a cool website function also. I don't think it gets as much traffic as Deviantart gets, but it's still a cool site and the people that review tend to give more insightful reviews to your work than some people on Deviantart. http://www.redbubble.com/people/ElegantDream84

I know this discussion is very 'old' but wanted to thank you for posting this question. I just joined redbubble a week or so ago and have uploaded several photos but I can't believe the price they are charging - if the artist is going to make any money at all it certainly can't be much because redbubble's price alone is so high. I've made a list of the other sites suggested here and going to check into those...
