How This Works…

You do not have to bother with ’selling' your photos. All you have to do is click a picture and upload it. The rest happens by itself.

Photographs are the most popular commodity online today. They are the most downloaded and bought assets online. Millions of photographs like you are paid for their pictures every single day.

“Just ONE photograph can get downloaded hundreds of times and continue to make you money month after month…!”

There are several stock photography websites that encourage users to upload their pictures. There is an approval process where you are required to upload 3 – 5 images first before creating your account. Once these images meet the criteria of clarity and quality, you can start uploading other images. Every time you upload images they will have to go through an approval process.

Out favourite stock photography website is Shutterstock, although there are many more popular ones like:

Fotolia, Dreamstime, Getty Images, iStock, Stocksy and ShutterPoint, 123RF.

How To Click The Right Pictures…

If you have not delved in stock photography before, the biggest challenge you will face is clicking pictures that get approved by the stock photography websites. We like to suggest starting with Shutterstock for 2 reasons.

One, they help you understand what is really required from your pictures. Not only do they have a comprehensive help section that helps you understand how to take stock worth picture, but whenever your uploaded pictures have quality issues, they let you know what those issues are so you can fix them next time.

Second reason for choosing Shutterstock is that they see a lot of traffic, being a very popular stock photography website. So you approved images start seeing exposure that getting downloaded faster. They also have unlimited plan for their subscribers which encourages them to download more. That is good for people like who are uploading their pictures to sell.

In summary, you have to watch out of the following things when submitting your pictures to stock photography websites:

1) Exposure. The subject and the picture must be properly lit. Dark, underexposed or over exposed pictures will not work.

2) Noise. Clicking in low light, using a mobile phone camera, not using a good quality camera, using a high ISO speed can all create noise in the pictures. Avoid this by using a good camera and shooting in good light.

3) Framing. Make a good frame. It shouldn't be cropping objects on the fringes and the subject or scene you are photographing should be properly captured. Maintain the relevance of what you are clicking and avoid taking too many unrelated objects in the same frame.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Does it cost anything to upload the pictures? No, it does not. You can upload all your pictures free of any cost.
  2. Can anyone join the websites? Yes. Some times you will have to submit 3 – 5 sample pictures during sign-up.
  3. What skills and information do I need? Some kinds of photographs are not accepted. There are other categories that do extremely well. The ‘Secret Images’ bonus is included in the “Paid To Take Pictures”.
  4. How many pictures do I need to upload? This is up to you. You can start with a handful. Even a single image can make you money. But you will have a better chance of greater success with a larger portfolio. Have a collection of hundred or more pictures online and you can earn a great recurring income every month.
  5. How much money can I earn? You can earn anything between $1.5-$7 per regular download. Premium and special downloads earn 10 times and more than that.

    How do I get started I’m very interested?
    What is the app called?

    • assembleandearn November 18, 2017 at 12:21 am #

      Hi. Kiley, you can start by getting approved with some of the stock photo websites that we have mentioned above. Shutterstock Contributor’s program is a good place to start. Make sure have at least 10 good quality pictures that feature interesting or useful content. Read their guidelines. They will tell you what they need you to click and what you should avoid. Avoid taking the very obvious like pictures of fruits and flowers. That said, there is a vast variety of pictures you can click that sell online, including tools, animals, babies, electronics, people etc.
      As for the apps for your mobile devices, go to the respective app store and search by the same name, e.g. search for Shutterstock and download the Contributor app. Good luck. Do write in with more questions if you have any.

    Sounds like a GREAT opportunity…the ad lacks integrity by saying it’s FREE when in truth, it is not…! If there was a way to make money FIRST, then pay once some $$$ has been made, that would be Excellent.

    How many photos I need to do

    • assembleandearn September 5, 2014 at 10:37 pm #

      Hello Maria. There is no fixed number. The more photos you upload the better your earning potential is. While it’s true that just one single photograph can earn thousands of dollars over its lifetime, three things happen when you build your collection.
      1) You have a more impressive profile.
      2) Different people looking for different kind of pictures find more of your pictures.
      3) Instead of one picture downloading a few times everyday, you have multiple ones getting downloaded multiple time, thereby increasing your income.
