    Does anyone here use it, do you have your own photos up there, and if so do you make any money from it ?

    I used it - and very cheap & good it was, too. So, I assume that, yes, you'd make a few bob from it. But I think you'd need to take amazing photos and lots of 'em to retire from the commission!

    I've bought loads of photos from them for websites, marketing brochures, etc. The quality is pretty good and prices are very good.

    I can't imagine you'd make much money unless you are a good and prolific photographer. I'm sure others sites pay more in royalties.

    I've also used http://www.shutterstock.com/ which is more expensive but better quality (IMHO).

    Give it a try and see if it makes a good plan b.

    well I've passed the signing up test, I've had my test images accepted as being good enough for stock photo's, and I've uploaded my first image.....just need it checking now.....let see what happens, it could be plan B.

    If you look at the number of photos people have downloaded, they must make a fair amount of $$$
