HI this is my frist time putting my stuff on a stock site, I am using 123 Royalty Free //www.123rf.com/ so has anyone else used them? Where is a good place to start?

I've used them..
started this month and had clock about 13 sales..
They're not bad for beginners.. I suppose.. :)

They are ok... but sales are slow, real slow. This month I've sold a whopping 6 photos there.

Out of the places I submit they're 6th place for downloads and 7th for earnings. Wouldn't be my first choice for a place to submit photos.

They're ok; I've not found them very fast sellers, but they're not bad.

The standard 'top three' in terms of sales (if you'll forgive the cynical referral links - if it bothers you just type the URL directly) are:

www.shutterstock.com,
www.dreamstime.com, and
www.istockphoto.com

Thanks I am giving shutterstock a try. I want to try something new. Can you make good money off stock photos?

Oh yeah, there are people (not me) that make thousands a month from microstock.

If you are interested in macrostock, you may want to try //www.alamy.com too, but not with the same images you use at the microstock sites.

I want to agree with many of the earlier comments. I am with 123RF and it has been slow. For some reason, a lot slower in August than it was in the previous 6 months for me. Not sure if it is me or something else. This slow down is at the same time my ShutterStock, iStock, and Fotolia are having record months.

If interested, the following Web page tries to summarize and compare some of the most popular microstock sites that most of the posters on this forum use:

//www.alysta.com/stock/

I highly recommend ShutterStock and iStock as others have already, but I also want to add Fotolia to the list. They have quickly become one of my top 3 in sales.

Thanks for the info I plann to try some of these. I am new to stock photography. I just listed with 123rf and got 4 of my first 10 photos down loaded. This just looks like fun to me, and I hope to maybe make some cash too.

What exactly classifies as stock photography?
09/06/2006 09:27:50 AM · #11
Typically photos that arent shot as an assignment. In other words any photo thats not shot with a purpose in mind or for a project at the time its shot. Its use can later be sold to someone who can use it for a given project.
