Is it possible to monetize photos here? + have many stock photos on my hard drive. I have tried uploading photos on popular stock photography sites but I was always disapproved. There are photos accepted but I think I have no luck for it.

Yes, you can get paid for photos that you upload either directly to an interest category or when you start a discussion. Once your activity rating reaches 500, you will also be able to add photos to responses and comments. Uploading photos works like posting any other content on myLot; once the image is uploaded myLot does not permit you to edit it or remove it yourself. There is a limit to how many photos you can upload per day. I believe it is somewhere around 25, although it's been quite a while since I maxed out my allowed images in a single day. Keep in mind, though, that myLot do moderate photos just as they moderate discussions. They will remove images that they feel may infringe on another person's copyright, so if the stock photos you wish to upload are not photos that you have taken yourself it's best to not upload them at all. Please don't upload photos just for the sake of increasing your earnings, as that may backfire. There are at least a couple instances I know of where a user has lost all of their uploaded photos (and presumably the associated earnings) for abusing the photo uploading privilege.

But profile photos are the only ones you can delete on your own. If you upload one to another section of the site and change your mind about it, you have to report it and ask the administrators to remove it.

You're right. We can't earn for profile pictures. On discussions. [b] "Since user profile photos tend to be personal in nature, you will not be compensated for these photos. Instead, you now have full ability to add and delete these photos at any time. Think of profile photos of a way to express yourself and pimp out your user profile page!

You can earn if you upload photo in your discussion but make sure that photo related to the discussion. Also that photo is from you. We make a trouble if we upload a copyrighted photo. So for safe just upload your own photo if you want to make a discussion with a photo.

Hmm i think both of us can earn if my discussion, responses and comment have a photo and you comment in the photo. You not earn if you comment in my profile photo.

Only photos uploaded to your discussions or responses will earn you anything. The picture must be relevant to the topic.

No. You only earn from what you type as long as it is something of substance. If another member comments on your photos, only they will earn from it.

There are site which you can earn by uploading photos. The one that I know is redgage. Our friends here had already shared their opinions about uploading photos and I think they already provided what you need to know. I've been here for a year and I think I have just uploaded a few photos. Have a nice day!
