Stock photography is sold online to people who need photos for websites, brochures, etc.

So I decided to sell photos of the chickens until I can start selling their eggs.



And this is Fuzzball and we have no idea what breed she is.

Quote:I'd be happy to make you a copyright file for adding to your photos. I'm always dabbling around with stuff like that. What Photo Editing program do you use?

What a great idea! I've gotten some excellent photos also.. (a hobby of mine) and since i'm a teenager, this may be an opportunity to earn some money! So maybe you could teach me how it goes...

here are a few of mine... do you think they're worthy?

PlumTuckered-
I dont realy edit my photos. The most I ever do is cro the excess scenery to make the subject stand out. Is there a program you would recommend?

The editing software I use is Corel Paint Shop Pro. With this program, you can put a watermark on your photos.

There are several different stock photography companies. The main one I use is Shutterstock
http://www.shutterstock.com/

There is also Dreamstime, Istock, 123RF and Getty. Look at the various photos on these sites and see what type of photos are selling.

Different sites have different photo requirements e.i. Shutterstock has a minimum of 4mp requirement.

The logo on my photos is taken care of Shutterstock. I would not recommend putting a photo anywhere on the web without a watermark.

If you want a decent free editing program, download Picasa from Google. It's free and easy!
