I've finally sold my first photo!
I sold this on fotolia.co.uk:
couple more of those and you will be able to eat at macdonalds soon. Well done
So explain http://www.fotolia.co.uk?
Yeah I just registered there sounds like a good idea.
And um Rednut I'm still finishing my work if you're wondering what I'm doing posting on here!
So you register for free, upload your pictures and if someone buys your pic you get 57p ?
It's called MicroStock, and it's big business. There are many companies doing this - have a google about.
Doesnt look like a great way of making money really.
From what i can see, you get naff all money wise which can only be bad. For comparison i sold a rally image last week, 2 prints netted me £70 and i still own all rights and hold the origional..youll need a lot of 57p's to make that!
I guess it depends on just how good the pics are really. If you are confident they're worth £30-£40 don't put them on there.
Well done Joe, good feeling selling something I just added online payments to my site www.meangasoline.co.uk
Made about £15 in the last week, but nothing for a couple of days!
Lol, well done
And I've just sold the same image again!
Trust my luck, last night I changed the settings on the picture so that Fotolia didnt have exclusivity on the miage - therefore I now only get 33% instead of 50%.....
50% + 33% of 57p doesnt add up to much.....yet.....
Still waiting to hear from Alamy to see if they like my pictures.
