You may have heard content is king, but photography adds visual appeal to that content, make photos a high in demand commodity. Blogs and social media are most read and shared when visuals are included. Like text, photos can be copyrighted, which means you can’t use any one photo you find online. As a result, there is money to be made through selling your photos and graphics.
Photos you sell must be owned by you. They don’t need to be professional grade, but they should be good quality. You can earn 15% to 60% percent of the sale of your photo depending on the resource used and the type of customer is buying. For example, stock photo subscribers tend to pay less for photos than people who buy one at a time or through credits. Most companies pay through PayPal once a week. Some places require you meet a threshold before payment is made.
Below is a list of places you can sell photos and graphics.
