I have heard so much about stock photos and how one can earn with your photos. I have tried out some sites but have not earned any money from them. Is there anyone here at mylot that makes money with stock photos? Which sites do you use and what type of photos sell the best?

hmm what do you mean by stock photos? Professional ones and such? I have seen people getting paid by it buy you need to have a lot of skill in photography and photoediting.

No, not necessarily professional, it can be amateur photos of good quality. Sites like Red Bubble, Crestock, Fotolia and others sell stock photos. You can register with them, load your photos to sell and make money if a buyer buys your photo. I'm looking for similar sites, that are easy to navigate and where making money is perhaps easier than having to wait for a buyer which might never happen.

I am on a few sites and have been for a while. I've only found three or four that are any good at earning money. I haven't reached payout yet, (it's usually quite high - about $50.00 to $100.00), but I haven't done bad considering how few pictures I've posted To be honest though, I don't put enough time into it. If you add a photo every day, I think you would start earning money.
