Quick Guide to Selling Images Online

Where to submit your images

There are hundreds of microstock sites with new ones appearing every day. Only a hand full of these sites actually give you any sales. There are 6 major sites that produce good income (Often referred to as the ‘Big 6′) and ~10 more sites that have lesser earnings and may or may not be worth your time uploading your images to. Other sites are simply not worth the effort of uploading. I have arranged the sites from most to least profitable according to the polls at microstockgroup.com

The Big 6 agencies are:

Shutterstock
Istockphoto
Dreamstime
Fotolia
StockXpert
123RF

The remaining agencies are:

Bigstockphoto
Crestock
SnapVillage
Zymmetrical

Yaymicro

Panthermedia

ScanstockPhoto

MostPhotos

CanstockPhoto

FeaturePics

I would suggest signing up with the Big 6 and see how you like it. Once you have all your images online with these agencies you can consider if you want to add more agencies to represent your work of if you would rather use that time to create more photos.
