Which mi­cro­s­tock agency to use

Amateur Photographer - - Technique Microstock -

THERE are nu­mer­ous mi­cro­s­tock agen­cies to choose from and new ones are emerg­ing all the time, so how do you de­cide where to up­load your pic­tures? To make life eas­ier, on the right is a list of the ma­jor 30 mi­cro­s­tock agen­cies and how much com­mis­sion con­trib­u­tors may earn (cor­rect as of mid-2017).

Un­for­tu­nately, some of the agen­cies listed here are prob­a­bly not worth your while as they have too lit­tle traf­fic, which is likely to mean few roy­al­ties. Some con­trib­u­tors choose to up­load to lit­er­ally all of the mi­cro­s­tock agen­cies, which can be very time con­sum­ing. For­tu­nately, you can get soft­ware, such as Stock­sub­mit­ter, to as­sist in this task. As a start­ing point, I rec­om­mend up­load­ing to a few of the top-tier agen­cies, in­clud­ing the likes of Alamy, Adobe Stock/ Fotolia, and Shutterstock.
