Hi everyone, I couldn't help but notice how many great images there are here and no one talks about selling their work. I belong to a wonderful site that may be of interest to you and maybe get you started on a new adventure!

I also posted this message under photography just incase the 2 topics don't overlap.

Not sure if anyone is interested, but if you enjoy photography or creating graphics, why not consider selling them?

There is a terrific, friendly and helpful site always looking for new photographers and designers, they pay very good commissions, check it out! Can Stock Photo

Oops, also forgot to mention that illustrations would have to be raster (jpeg) format.

Hi Kim,

Thanks for letting us know about the site. It looks very interesting. If you wouldn't mind, please let us know about your experiences in selling images. I think a lot of our readers would like to here all about it.

Thanks,
Diane

Thanks for sharing such a worthwhile site, Jezebella. I have literally thousands of photos I could share...my camera goes everywhere with me. It would be one way of recouping the outlay !! I have a few on the Webshots site and have had 140 downloads so far...not many in comparison to some...but it is encouraging. I would love to find out if some of my others are saleable ! You have certainly had success !

My Webshots link is...

if you want to see a few.

Again...Thankyou !

Yes, Canstock has been a great site for me and already it is showing in the sales I have achieved. This is still a very new site. I think once it has been around for a year or so it will be fantastic.
It only takes a couple of minutes to sign up, then follow the instructions and requirements for uploading your images. The images do go through an approval and quality inspection and of course all images uploaded must be your own.

Thanks Diane,

I started creating images for my own use and realized that others may want to use them in a variety of projects so I searched out websites that sell stock images.

Canstock sells stock photography and illustration. Stock images are used for a variety of business and professional usages (no commercial reproduction)and your images are protected and licensed accordingly. Each stock site allows different license agreements and pays different commissions to the contributors.

Of all the sites that I am a contributor and/or researched, I have found Canstock to be the most fair in contributor commissions and still has reasonable prices for the designers and end users for the images.
They are a very friendly group and very helpful for all aspects.
There are opportunities to enter on site design and image contests as well as the chance to be in the spot lite with photographer of the week!
I really enjoy it there and thought that as a new company they may be interested in some of the image creations here and some here might enjoy selling their own work.

The best part of it is that the image can be sold over and over again so it is fun (and addicting) to go and check your sales!
Each artist/contributor/designer once signed up has their own portfolio and can link to their own or other websites for additional traffic.

Hope this info helps and if I can I will answer any other questions you like or feel free to go direct to Canstockphoto for more information.

Thanks
