    Consider this fact: iStock, as a company, makes about $5 million per year which ain't much.

    Stock photos make about $0.24 ~ $0.45 (that's cents not dollars) per image. So those who shoot very compelling images, and hellova lot of them, make a living. Most use stock photography as a supplement to their income.

    I would say they would be darn lucky to make even that. If you are considering having a second income from any stock photo site, you better seriously rethink the whole proposition. The only place that makes any semblance of good money is the site itself selling dreams to gullible people submitting photos.

    Probably. How big do you think the photo market is? How many photos have you personally purchased from an internet site?
