If you add a picture to your responses that is relevant to the discussion then you get what they think it is worth. Now having said that they began to limit me and not sure why since it is participation. No where do they say only the first so many a day or in total we only pay for this many pictures you use. I made over 5 dollars last month with pictures. Was good while that lasted. I now only put a picture with the discussions I create. Hope this helps.

I earned more than $3.00 from photo. You put many photo in my picture folder collecting from websites or scanned from books or magazine or newspaper then add that image according to match of your post or response. You can edit those photo from pain or photo shop software this will more attractive.

It would be nice to know how a person actually earns for photos. That part really confuses me here! Other than the photo part though i have caught on quite nicely ... LOL!

I am another one that stopped posting photos, because I could type stuff faster than I can upload, and it seemed to slow down my earnings. It was not worth the effort. I do think, however, that people on your friends list can rate your photos, and then you might make more. I do agree, it was probably an effort to do away with generic online image posts. Too bad, really. I did see someone who actually posted a discussion on how to spam the system with photo posts (I reported it) so I guess we all suffer for a few cheaters. I only get 1 cent per photo. Since you are such a fast typist, posting probably pays you more as well.

I don't know how they pay for photos, but I stopped uploading them because it didn't seem to be worth the effort. In the beginning I added images to just about everything, and when I stopped my earnings didn't seem to change much. Now I'll only add a photo if it's very unique and is directly related to a conversation. I think what they want to discourage is people uploading common images from the Internet, especially since a lot of those are copyrighted.

You do get 1 cent per photo (posted on topics or on interest pages). Photos can be rated and commented on, so I suspect there might be a way to earn more money with photos.

(then again, I'm not so sure, because you can actually rate your own photos! Glitch?)

The first time when I uploaded photos to the max (24-26 photos,I don't remember exactly) on mylot they paid my $0,56 now when I do this they pay my around $0,24 to $0,35. I don't know why they pay my so little now. Maybe because I upload photos every day to maximum.

I am sure that we get atleast 1 cent for each when we add with discussions and in our interests but mylot has stopped paying us for adding images on "photo" option of our profile but i've made a lot till that time when mylot stopped to paying us on "photo" option. Keep on adding images with discussions and ur interests.

I still only get 1 cent for my photos, no matter what I do with them on here. Must be the standard fee. :) I am assuming that their is a way to get more from them, but I haven't figured it out yet.

It's one cent vor every picture. And who knows what it is very every post. Really, to be honest, getting paids cents to the hour as we do here isn't really worth the energy sometimes. You can't make a living off mylot, that's for sure.
