I know for a fact that there are a lot of you out there that are great at photography, whether you know it or not. I have seen some of your pictures and you guys are talented.

There is this website called istockphoto, over at, which allows you to join their website for free and sells your photographs for you. You get paid in royalties and of course you pay them a small commission as well. I joined them recently and only after I had successfully registered, did I find out that my photographs are not good enough.

For the individuals that do not know, I usually take photographs of trees. Unfortunately my normal photos did not have the proper pixel count and I had to rely on other pictures. Anyway, it is a legitimate income and if you are looking for a way to get a few extra bucks, well you can try selling your photographs.

I am going to take a few new pictures to see if they are good enough. But with the website itself, I have not had any problems yet.


  1. I'm quite tempted by that idea. I'm not sure I take enough photos for it to be worth while, and only on my phone, so the quality is sometimes not great. I'll definitely have a look though. Great info!

  2. I've looked at iStockPhoto a few times and considered registering; I doubt my photos are as high-quality as they want, though.

    Thanks for the post about the site!

  3. My kids are natural photographers, much better than I am. Thanks for the info.

  4. I have a few friends who might be interested in that web site. Thanks for the info!

    P.S. Thanks also for your kind comments on my blog about my Dad. I appreciate them.

  5. Annalisa - They say you can take as many photos as you like.

    The Golden Eagle - You can always apply and find out. That is the only way I learned.

    Tonja - You are welcome.

  6. Liz - You are so very welcome. I hope they will enjoy the website.
