Am I the only one here that sells my illustrations/photos?

I was just wondering if I'm the only person on this site that found sites to sell illustrations or photos? Well I know I had a headache to find them and of 5 or more that I'm subscribed to only one looks extremely promising, I think it is well worth it. I was hopping to find other people that do the same here on myLot, maybe you know sites that are good that I haven't tried yet or have some good advice on stuff related. I myself am more of an illustrator person, I wish I could submit photos too, but I don't have a camera to do so unfortunately. I was actually wondering if like the site to sell those if there's a site to sell .gif images as I love making them but haven't found a market for it yet. Well I'll leave it at that. ------------------------------------------------- Just an opinion in a sea of thoughts -------------------------------------------------

You're the only person here I've heard of who is doing that. A few of us have out images on our profiles, and include them on discussions and posts, 1c each download. I think you might be underrating your ability to transfer images to digital, though. If you've got a decent scanner, you can scan up to A4 size images and control dpi, etc, as well as use effects and Photoshop type technology for publishing. You can make jpeg, gif and tiff images quite easily depending on preferred format for sites, so it's no major hassle. What sites have you found? I would have gone looking for them if I'd known there were any.

Oh my scanner isn't good it makes horrible lines on the scans, and the sites are very rigorous to what they accept. For example there is a minimum dimension size of for example 1500x1500 pixels so if you take a photo of 1400x1400 it isn't accepted and you're not allowed to submit resize it. Plus technical things like noise.... I've seen very good photos get rejected. I illustrate 2000x2000 in photoshop a lot of the things I create I do with the aid of brushes sometimes getting free brushes that can be used for non and commercial purposes. I'll see to sending you a message with the site and some info on it, I'll send info on the one I find is the best but if you like I'll send some others too.

Sorry, SKLC, I was posting a discussion and got your posts and email in reverse order. I've got an Epson Photo scanner which can do most of those things pretty well, in fact sometimes too well, getting line details that illustrators would rather forget, but it does some pretty good scans of things like the flowers on my photos. Good for keeping images and creating bitmaps for reworks, etc.
