Finding the easiest ways to sell travel photos online

There is an easy way for me to sell my travel photos.

The quality of photos that today's smartphones are capable of capturing is amazing, and anyone can try them online via various stock photo websites.

Stock photos are what we are talking about.

You have already taken your travel photos and they can be licensed for use by other people.

It isn't like just any photograph is suitable for this type of use, anyone can try to sell their images online, but it's not like just any photograph is suitable for this type of use.

If you want your photos to be accepted by any of the stock photo sites, you will need to learn the technical standards.

It's getting started.

If you are a casual photographer, there is a simpler way to see if your photos can be sold.

If you want to see if your images and videos can be placed on numerous marketplaces, you need to use a website called Wirestock.

They work with a lot of different companies.

They license content to businesses directly through their "Extra Channels" program.

They charge a 15% commission whenever your items are purchased on any of the marketplaces, and a range of higher fees for items sold through their additional channels.

They allow you to skip the process of filling out descriptions, keywords, titles and other items that are required by the various marketplaces via their "Easy Submission" tool that uses artificial intelligence.

Text associated with your images will have a huge bearing on whether potential buyers find it or not.

Once your images have been approved for use, you can track everything from a single dashboard.

I don't know if I give up ownership.

You can get paid more than once for each photo or video that gets accepted if you maintain ownership of your images.

There are requirements for technical work.

There is a minimum resolution of 4 Megapixels and photos can be no larger than 45 MB in size.

If you process/crop the image, you may not be able to get the best results.

Videos can be in either the mp4 or mp3 format and can be between 5 and 60 seconds long.

The model/property is released.

You need to get a signed release from every person or company in the photo if you want to use it on your website.

To avoid the need for releases to get your image approved, it's best to stick to images that don't have people's faces in them.

It is easy to sell photos online with Wirestock, but don't expect to make a lot of money.
