With an increase in higher speed internet connections, higher quality digital cameras and even camera phones, it has never been easier to make money from your photos online. Regardless if you are Professional Photographer or simply just a gifted Amateur, all you have to do is upload them, set a price and wait.
So what types of images can you sell and where? The best types of photos to sell online are called stock photos. These are images that normally illustrate objects, landscapes, ideas, emotions, people, and art. This list is endless but images do need to be of a certain standard and quality to be attractive to buyers and sell online!
Quality is most important, poor quality images taken in low light will not be very useful to any graphic designer for use on the web or print. They need high resolution, sharp images, but the best thing to do if you are not sure if your images are good enough is to upload your images to a photo sales website, they will then make a decision and either reject or accept your photos or graphics for sale.
Graphics can also be sold online via most websites, for example website graphics, backgrounds, textures, and digital artwork are all in demand by designers
