I decided to close my iStock account. Unfortunately, some of the royalty amounts were coming out to less than a penny an image. Now, I don’t expect to make much per image for stock. The idea is you’re supposed to make it up on bulk. However, less than a penny? Really? That would be insulting if the whole system wasn’t so impersonal.
I’m still offering my images through Shutterstock. Their royalty rates, while still paltry, are at least better than iStock.
I may look around and see if there are any other stock image sites around that would be worth setting up an account. Anyone have any suggestions for stock sites they’ve had good luck with?
