Has anyone used iStockPhoto, Shutterstock, or Fotolia?

I tried to use Shutterstock but I didn't want to scan in my ID so I gave up on that one. Maybe they've changed since then. Currently I'm only using BigStockPhoto. Maybe in the summer I'll sign up for some others.

Thank you. I looked at the BigStockPhoto site and it looks like it's a good company. They give examples of good and poor photographs and provide a list of subjects they need.

Thank you! I'm learning so much by being a member of myLot (this is my sixth day). I hadn't heard of Picable, but I've got it bookmarked and I'll check it out.

I have joined all three of those! I've earned the most on Shutterstock. In fact, I've earned several thousand more dollars on Shutterstock than I have on Fotolia and iStock combined! So if you only join one site, I would definitely recommend Shutterstock! But there's no harm in joining and submitting to all three! And if you're looking for more websites that are similar, I have some links in my blog http://funonlinemoney.blogspot.com/2008/12/sell-your-photos.html

I joined a lot of those stock photos sites, the ones that pay you if they sell your pictures, but most of them denied my pictures, saying it a out of focus, or not relevant. I don't think my pictures were that bad, but I guess they want only really professional photos taken with professional cameras.
