    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!

    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. :)
