Well, after my post here yesterday, Fotolia sold another of my photos
Hoodathunkit! I suppose when you get past all the rational reasons why stock is a poor idea, your left with the argument "why not?" So many of us simply give away our work anyway. It's kind of an ego booster to have someone buy your photos. I still only have $1 listed for what they owe me -- I suspect the first dollar is simply a come-on and then you only get a few cents (perhaps $.30, as you suggest Steve) each sale after that (It's been a long time since I read the agreement). The important thing is that I'm well on the way to becoming a rich photographer
P.S. If you want to try selling stock, the photos I sold were taken with a P&S Canon A620 -- so the field's wide open.
Thanks Steve, this thread turned out to be fun and informative!
