Best stock photo website

I few blog posts ago I talked about Adobe stock. But in that post I only talked about how adobe stock is good. So let me tell you a bit about a few other stock photo website where you can sell your photos. I applied for a few stock website but only really used 3 of them

I still think this is one of the best stock photo website. It is the one that currently sell most of my pictures.

  1. Adobe stock

In my opinion this is one off the site where it is easiest to upload your photos and edit the keywords.

They are newer in the stock photo game. But since Adobe is trusted by many people. This was a big selling point for me. I already had an adobe account and trusted them with my adres and bank details.

2. Getty images

One of the oldest stock site on the internet since 1995. It is a big website which has a lot of traffic so as you can expect then is that more people might see your photos.

3. Shutterstock

This is also a very big agency that gets a lot of traffic to there website. So many people might see your photos. but the downside is that you will have a lot of competition.

Do I really need Adobe?

Short answer? No.

But there is a reason so many people have Adobe and love using it so much.

With Adobe creative cloud you have exces to some of the most used programs in the business like Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, After effects, Premier Pro and many more.

What does each of these programs do?

  • Photoshop does what the name suggest. It helps you edit your photo’s. Adobe Lightroom can also help with light settings for the photo’s. These two programs work great together.
  • InDesign is for making posters, books, flyers, and almost any publications that are printed.
  • Illustrator is perfect for making Illustrations, infographic and logo’s of all sorts. But also to change colors of logo’s is needed. Here is a tutorial on how to do that.
  • After effects work to animate that illustration you just made in Illustrator.
  • Premier Pro is great for video editing. I edit my tutorials always in Premier.

Tutorials

I will be honest the Adobe programs are not always easy to master. But if you do know the basics of one program then you kind of know all of them. They are not extremely hard but watching a few tutorials can’t hurt anyone.

On tutsplus.com there are so many free tutorials you can follow to master all these programs that does not cost you anything.

On the Adobe website are also many tutorials for each of there programs.

Stock photo is your best friend.

I have use adobe stock for a few years know. Let me tell you how I got there.

I have photo’s

You might have the same problem that I had a few years ago. When photography is your hobby but you do not really know what to do with your photo’s. I had almost 800 photo’s on my laptop that I loved but I did not do anything with. So let me inspire you to put them on a stock photo website like Adobe stock.

I do not have photo’s but need one

But it is not just a good place to put your photo’s if you have many. There might also be a few of you that don’t have photo’s to publish but are looking for photo’s. Adobe stock is also a really good place to take photo’s from to use for your publications.
