Excerpts from user posted reviews of my eBook – Getting Started in Stock, a step by step guide to microstock photography. These reviews are unedited and the original location is posted, if known.

“It’s a great resources for people trying to get into the field. The information is concise and thorough, with step by step instructions on getting your photos submitted and approves in the most efficient way possible. Great links to software and other resources to make the job easier. Thank you very much.
One little suggestion. While there is some info on cameras, I think it would be helpful to have a little more explanation as to what to look for in a digital camera, such as image sensor size, megapixels, etc, to get good crisp pictures. Especially for non-DSLR cameras to use as backup.” <Source – Shutterstock Forum>
