Occasionally I read a post from Mylot and a Mylotter uploaded a lot of photos online and finally he sold one photo. I am interested in it since I think I have some good photos to be sold, too. I like taking photos. Then I joined Foap and I uploaded some photos there. I use the same username there. But so far no good news yet. Did you also try to sell your photos online?

No, I have never tried to sell my photos online. I have many, I think that some are really good.

It is possible. But there is a lot of competition. And lot of things to learn. And also low rate per photo sold. For example we only get 35% from the website agencies for per photo sold. So let's say your image is like 5$. and you get 35% per image sold. I tried this but i am going to keep it as passive income and not the active one.

As long as the photos can sell, I don't really mind how much I can earn. After all, it is my hobby to take photos.

You could try Shutter stock, Fotolia and the other stock websites. Then there is Zazzle, fine art America, red bubble to name a few.

Yep I'm selling on Dreamstime and started on other photo stock sites too but it takes too long to reach payout if you only have a few pics up. Especially if you're not serious abt it.

It is bad that they don't pay immediately after a photo is sold.

@youless Yeah all sites are like that. They have a minimum before you can cash out.

You can try Clashot too if you are using an android :) if you haven't tried bitLanders you can try earnings from your pictures too. On bitLanders you could earn more if you receive a 5/5 star rating per gallery. Here is an example:
