Using Imagekind To Make Money From Your Photos

So now that you have created your websites, and setup a Flickr account, the next step is to link your Flickr account to a site called Imagekind. Imagekind is a place where you can upload your photos and sell them in poster form, custom framed art, and even greeting cards!

The best part about Imagekind is that you can sell your work in all the forms above without having to do any work besides uploading your photos. They take care of the rest, you just setup the markup that you would like to have on your photos and collect the paycheck!

Now, of course, in the beginning you don't want to put very much of a markup, but once you make a name for yourself, there is no limit to what you can charge as long as people are willing to fork up the cash.

Ok, so here is where Flickr comes in, what you need to do is go to the sign up screen for Imagekind. Here you will find a link that says "sign in with your Flickr account". Simply choose this and link the two accounts. Now every time you upload something to Flickr you are just one step away from putting it online for sale to anyone in the world!

You will need to create a photo gallery in Imagekind and then select "Upload Photos From Flickr" in the top right corner. From here you can simply drag your photos into your Imagekind gallery! Don't forget though to name, and make a description for your photos when you put them into Imagekind. This will help people find your photos inside Imagekind. You can also add a link inside the description of the photos on Imagekind which will bring traffic back to your photosite which will in turn help with your Google adsense income.

As if that wasn't enough reason to join, you can also get banners like the one you see here on this site on the right side to show off your work. If you run other sites that are not photosite you can put these banners on these sites to get more traffic and in turn more sales on your photos.

Did I mention that Imagekind is free so what are you waiting for? Go ahead and sign up, or check out my work here for more examples! Good luck to you all, and be sure to let me know if you have any questions or problems...

Nice Information,

I think stock photography is also nice option,
recently I sold my photos to and make good sums of money

Imagekind and stock photography are both a nice option - although I have to say I am yet to make anything off stock photography.
