Do you like to take pictures of nature, cityscapes, interesting situations, or food at restaurants? Have you seen or participated in a significant event, and would like to share your impressions? Then grab your camera or smartphone and keep on snapping because those pictures could translate to dollars if you upload them to the right place. Here are eight websites that let you make money off your photos.
DeviantArt is the largest online social network for art enthusiasts. It serves as a platform for both established and emerging artists to share and promote their work to a massive audience. Although the website lacks the professional look of many other photo-specific sites, the extensive DeviantArt network of 35 million registered users from artistically diverse backgrounds more than makes up for the slightly less refined layout. Since DeviantArt showcases original paintings and drawing more so than photographs, the amount you get of sold photos is generally 20 percent of the sale price; however, if you pay $2.49 a month, you can upgrade to the premium membership which allows for more control over things like royalties and selling price.
