Have you had any success selling stock photos? If so what service do you use?
I'm an exclusive contributor for iStock (now owned by Getty Images). I only have 94 photos on the site right now and haven't added any in a few years. I've had 575 sales during that time. The single biggest seller sold 75 times so far.
94 images isn't nearly enough to be successful, but I lost interest for a while and never quite got back to it. It's on my list of things to do.
What type of pictures did you use? And how much does that 94 pictures typically make? I'm not looking at doing it to make a full time job or anything just looking to make a nice side income from it.
I've made less than $1,000 from it. I'm not sure if this URL will work here, but this is a link to the photos so you can see the types of images:
That link worked great. Thanks for the great idea's I'm looking into buying a new camera after realizing that the one I have isn't good enough
FYI - The image that sold 75 times (so far) is the one with the row of grave stones with with flags on them.
