Fotolia is a site where photographers can sell their photos or images directly to consumers on the net. Photographers can sell their photos and keep up to 80% of fees to make profit.
Three types of rights may be purchased – web only, print only, and exclusive buyout. The exclusive buyout option results in the image being removed from the site,and no futher sales of the image are made after that.
Fotolia has created an innovative pricing system to encourage use by photographers and manage the user experience. Photographers may price photos within certain ranges determined by their rank. The more sales a photographer has, the higher their rank. Prices start at zero and can be as high as $2,000 for an exclusive buyout.
If you want to share your photos, especially you are a photographer, I very much recommend you to register an account here and get paid to your photos you taken.
