3rd EditionNeed more persuasion? Over the past six years I have learned a lot about microstock photography and the various tips and tricks to get the best out of each site. Some things are obvious – others you only learn about after spending hours reading through forum posts.  Save your time – all those tips and tricks are now available in an easy step by step guide to Microstock and how you can make money from your photos. Learn how to get into the business, how to efficiently manage and keyword your images and get them online with the minimum fuss. Finally, jump straight to the time saving tools and web sites such as StockUploader and DeepMeta to effectively manage your portfolio.

This third edition of my book is greatly expanded from the first release. I now cover the main stock agencies and have added detailed graphs and charts showing how my income has developed on each site and whether they are improving in terms of income per online file – in my view the best way to measure success on a stock agency. I have dedicated chapters on Keywording Secrets, easy uploading approaches and Lightroom tips to remove dust spots. As more and more sites now accept editorial images, I have added additional information on how best to meet that need.

There are excellent books available at Amazon on the sort of images to take for stock. I’m not trying to compete with those. My book is clearly a “how-to” guide based on all the experiences (good and bad) as I have gone from an income of less than $100 per month to a run rate of over $25,000 per year. Why make the same mistakes and miss the opportunities I have missed – one day’s worth of sales will more than cover the cost of my book!
