[ ภาษาไทย ]I don’t update this blog for long time. I think that this job is my hobby (sale picture online). I do it for 2 years so I summarize my job result and share it to other people.
In May 2010, I started read the book about sale picture online from Mr.Sura Nualpradid. And then, I sent my picture to Micro stock photography at Shutterstock to check my picture. This is the first website that my pictures pass. In the mid of May 2010, I started to sent my picture to another Micro stock photography (the total of Micro stock photography are 14) as given below:
- Shutterstock.com (1,882 online photos and 17 online footage)
- Fotolia.com (1,499 online photos)
- Dreamstime.com (1,171 online photos)
- 123rf.com (2,031 online photos / 7 online footage)
- Freedigitalphotos.net (108 online photos)
- Veer.com (748 online photos)
- Graphicleftovers.com (1,826 online photos)
- Canstockphoto.com (557 online photos)
- Photodune.net (673 online photos)
- Depositphotos.com (1,379 online photos)
- Bigstockphoto.com (222 online photos)
- Crestock.com (42 online photos)
- Alamy.com (107 online photos)
- iStockphoto.com (23 online footage)
Since I sale the picture online, I have 9,600 download from 14 websites. My income is around 4,000 USD. 90% of my income from Shutterstock, Fotolia, Dreamstime and 123rf which I follow it from Mr.Sura’s suggest in the book.
I got 60% of the average acceptance ratio from every website. This is because many rejected. I think most of my picture is nature which cannot make much money. So, I will improve mine to other pictures (not only nature).
I think that iStockphoto.com is very difficult to pass the pictures since I test all Micro stock photography. I used to send 7 times but it still could not pass. So, I have to wait to send the picture again in April 2013. However, I sent my picture to footage instead. I sent 2 times but the second times I pass it in March 2012. Now I also have 23 clips in footage. Even though no one buy it, I still proud that my pictures pass it.
I am very surprise that Freedigitalphotos.net is very difficult to pass the pictures. Because this website looks very simple and normal design so, it should be easy to pass. But I got only 35% of acceptance ratio that why I have only 108 pictures in this website. However, my fifth income comes from this website because my pictures have appropriately price.
All in all, I will deeply study each Micro stock photography for next blog.
