People who make money from photos

With the evolution of digital cameras and the possibility of sharing photos on the Internet, the business of making money for displaying them arises. Let's suppose that a person has 5,000 photos taken from their trips, they will surely want to show them ... and what better way than to receive money for doing so.

Sites that pay for the photos to be displayed.

In reality they do not pay to raise them, but for others to see them; one of those examples is Shareapic. Bidvertiser users can add their code and some time ago I also had the possibility to place the AdSense code, although it has been provisionally penalized by Google because half the world uploads pornography and inappropriate content, maybe they will reach a better relationship, even so Shareapic continues giving the service to an approximate payment of $ 0.25 per thousand photos seen.

A particularity that Shareapic offers is that you can create many galleries, widgets to show previews on other sites and even a program that can be downloaded to upload in bulk quickly.

It may not sound like a lot of money, but perhaps it doesn't hurt if someone is showing their photos for free

It is not recommended to upload original products.

With this I mean, that it is not convenient to upload the images in the original sizes, but use a program of those that converts entire directories of photos to smaller sizes, which can be 640 × 480. There are other ways to promote better quality photos ... that's another science ...

To do this you can also use Picasa, which is a handy Google software to upload images to Blogs and make modifications to mass images.

Put a watermark on it.

Overall, if the photos will go to the web, many will use them for other sites so if you can earn a link in the future, putting a site watermark may be an option. There is no guarantee that someone will come to the site for this, but it is possible that someone who finds a photo they are very interested in will search the site to see if there are more like it. 

To place the watermark you can use photowatermark, of Tamar solutions, simple and free.

Charge for downloading Images

If the photos are of high quality, you can find some providers that offer payment for high-resolution photos and that others pay to download them. One such example is Shutterstock! They pay up to $ 0.25 per image downloaded.

How people see Shareapic photos

Many people are disappointed because they have few visits, but the trick is that the photos are placed on other sites, preferably blogs, forums within the subject of the photos. For this, Shareapick provides tools for creating the code that is pasted on the sites where you want to show them.

Well, not bad idea, for those who have many photos and want to share.
