The next step is finding suitable platforms to sell your pictures online. There are scores of small and large websites where you can post your pictures for sale.

Generally, every website allows you to register free. They will display your picture and when sold, charge you a fee for utilizing their services. Below are some top websites where you can make money by selling photos online.

1. SHUTTERSTOCK
Shutterstock is perhaps the world’s largest website for selling photos online. Depending upon exclusivity you can earn minimum US$100 to US$ 120 per photo. There are various pricing plans offered by Shutterstock. You can opt for the one best suited for selling pictures. The company’s website claims, it paid over US$ 500 million to contributors in 2017. An advantage with Shutterstock is, you get updates about themes for photos that are in high demand during any particular time of the year.

2. ALAMY STOCK PHOTO
Another popular website where you can make money selling photos online is Alamy.

The company has a fair policy for pricing your images and the share you receive for their sales. You can select from the various royalty policies offered by iStock to price your pictures.

5. SMUGMUG
To make money selling photos online, also try SmugMug Pro. The only flipside with SmugMug Pro is, you need to buy contributor subscription at US$ 12.50 per month. In exchange, the company gives you 85 percent of the sale price of your photos. The system is rather simple. For every photo you post on SmugMug Pro, you can select your price and add a mark-up profit for the website. You get the price minus the mark-up profit and service fees.

6. GETTY IMAGES
Another leading website for selling photos to make money is Getty Images, based in the US but with operations worldwide. Getty Images has some of the biggest customers in form of news networks, large corporations and advertizing majors as well as government departments as part of its buyer portfolio. However, joining Getty Images as contributor can prove a bit difficult for some photographers. The website requires excellent and unique photos to provide its high profile clientele. Hence, you need to have exceptional photography skills for contributing to this website.

With an impressive portfolio of companies including Apple, American Express, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Deloitte and many more, 123RF is indeed a website where you can make money selling photos online.

Other payment options are available for contributors from different countries. Signing up as contributor is simple and you and you can begin earning almost instantly.

8. ADOBE STOCK
Formerly called Fotolia, the website now operates under new brand identity, Adobe Stock. Indeed, it is operated by the same company that makes popular software Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Photoshop among others. Thanks to excellent reputation, Adobe Stock has myriad clients that require very creative photos and sometimes, related content. The company pays 33 percent of the sale price of your photos. Additionally, you can also sell videos. Anyone above the age of 18 years can register as contributor on Adobe Stock. You can request payment once you have accumulated US$ 50 or Euros 50 in your account, through PayPal or Skrill.

9. ADULT STOCK PHOTO
As suggested by its name, AdultStockPhoto is a website where you can sell pictures of nude women and men. The website pays a minimum US$ 100 for every picture sold. Additionally, the site does not allow underage people to access its content. AdultStockPhoto is the quickest way to become rich for amateur and professional photographers. Alongside nude pictures, the website also sells soft and hard porn as well as videos. The website sometimes seeks explicit consent from nude and porn models to post pictures for online sales.

10. BENTBOX
BentBox allows you to sell nude pictures as well as soft porn online. Similar to all nude picture and porn websites, you get pretty lucrative payments for every photo sold. Further, the website also allows contributors to select the audience for their photos. You can also issue licenses for using these pictures for specific purposes only, as part of protection offered by BentBox to individuals whose pictures in nude or other compromising postures are for sale.

MORE WEBSITES
In addition to these, you can sell photos at several other websites in the USA and around the world.

Registering on these websites to sell photos online is free. However, we advise you read terms and conditions carefully to ensure you make maximum money selling photos online.

STOCK PHOTOS EXPLAINED 
You will come across the term ‘stock photos’ several times while registering on any website where you can sell pictures. Here, we explain the term. The term ‘stock photos’ simply means a database of pictures contributed by amateur and professional photographers, that are up for sale through websites we mention earlier. Stock photos are generally sold by these websites in two categories:

  • Royalty Free Photos (RF Photos)
  • Rights Managed Photos (RM Photos)

To earn more money by selling photos online, we elaborate a bit more on these jargon.

ROYALTY FREE PHOTOS
This is one of the categories under which you can sell photos online. Here, a customer pays a fee to the website where you have registered of selling photos online. Royalty Free gives rights to customers to use a particular photo for a fixed number of times only. Here, you do not give exclusive rights to any customer for use of the photo. The same photo can be sold to multiple customers. A customer however reserves the option of using it when desired. They can also be used for various purposes, since there are no exclusive rights involved.

RIGHTS MANAGED PHOTOS
Rights Managed Photos are generally common in the news and advertizing companies. Here, you need to specify the industry that can use your photos. Further, you have to assure customers the photo would be exclusive for them. You also reserve the options of specifying the duration for which the photo will be used, set demographic and geographic limitations. Additionally, you can define the purposes for which your photo will be used.

NOTE:
There is another segment of photos that are offered by photo stock companies to promote a photographer or the website. These are called free photos. Here, you are not entitled to any payments. There are also no limitations of any sorts. These are given free to display your skills and attract prospective buyers for your other photos. They serve only as teasers and advertisements for your skills.

CONCLUSION
You can make a lot of money selling photos online. Indeed, a lot of people worldwide have made small fortunes through this trade. Other than pecuniary gains, amateur and professional photographers also get opportunities to own skills. With mobile apps that are common nowadays, you can do this small business from anywhere in the world, without having to rely on a computer. Various picture editing softwares are now available for smart-phones as well and allow you to enhance photo quality before posting them on a website.
