Dear Subscriber,

Summer's just about over. Did you make the most of it, or did it seem to just race on by?

Long gone are the endless summer days as a kid out of school. (what a drag)

Schools are starting up again, and all of the vacations seem to be coming to an end. It's time to get back into the regular working schedule.

Like everything, all good things must come to an end -- but I did relearn the importance of balance. If I didn't have to work and was on vacation every day, I'd probably lose appreciation for the time off and end up feeling like a bum.

Anyway, now that most of our vacations are over, how'd you like to make some easy money selling some of those photos you took over the summer?

A lot of user contributed stock photo websites have popped up, and by submitting your photos to them -- you can earn money if they get downloaded. It's pretty easy, and once your photos are up -- you can earn money for a long time to come without any additional work.

Sound interesting?

FEATURE ARTICLE: Turn your Photos into Cash

Are you a shutterbug looking to justify the purchase of a new digital camera? Maybe you're a talented amateur photographer and already have a large quantity of digital photos collecting dust on your hard drive? Who ever you are, if you have an eye for taking quality digital photos, you can turn them into cash.

Today, it has never been easier to make money from your photos by submitting them to online stock photo companies. These companies are looking for all types of photos, not just the one in a million photo of lighting striking football goal post.

Stock photos are photographs that can be purchased online from various web sites. Many of these stock photo web sites will post quality photos from about anyone and if someone downloads the photo, you get paid for it each time.

Designers, advertisers, marketers and others constantly search for and buy single images from places online like Shutterstock, Fotolia and Dreamstime. Photo buyers can pay a flat monthly subscription for access to a certain number of stock pay per image. Each time one of your photos is downloaded, you make money!

To be perfectly honest, you won't have a real good chance at selling that picture of Aunt Edna with her poodle taken with your Polaroid camera in 1984; these companies are looking for sellable pictures.

However, you don't have to be Ansel Adams to take clean, crisp photos with good lighting and composition. There are some fantastic photos out there from people who don't think of themselves as photographers nor have thousand-dollar equipment.

Here are a couple tips to keep in mind if you feel like giving it a shot.

  • Only submit your best photos-this will give you a better chance of getting your photos accepted and posted.
  • Make sure you have permission if a person is recognizable or product is shown in the photo.
  • Photos must be 4.0MP or larger, without manipulation.
  • Digital submission only.
  • Don't send multiple pictures of the same subject at different angles.
  • Categorize and describe/tag the photos correctly so they can be easily found and purchased.

Take a couple minutes to go through those photos on your computer to see if there are some gems worth submitting.

Here are some links to some of the web sites paying for photos if you need a little help getting started.
