Is it worth selling photos on Shutterstock?

Yes. Are the photo’s quality issues a factor in its value?

The answer depends on your needs, so let’s run down our top ten tips.

Tip #1: Check your own work. You never know what else can happen to your image, so it’s a great idea to check whether you’ve copied someone else’s work.

It could just be an old photo from another service you’ve used before. Or it could be a completely new image that you’ve never used. Tip #3: Identify where your site is hosted. Try Google Search Console to find out how a site’s content works and how its server responds.

Tip #4: Check the author of the image. This also helps identify if there’s any copyright issues.

Tip #5: Check the author’s work. If the image contains a copyright notice, ask for it. If the image comes from Shutterstock’s own portfolio, it won’t be in our portfolio.

Tip #6: Find the link to see more content you may find helpful.

Tip #7: Check the original source. Can the image easily be made by scraping the site’s entire database? You never know!

Tip #8: Consider the license. Shutterstock might be using a specific license that gives your photos no rights (for example, Flickr’s Creative Commons license).

Tip #9: Can the image be found from your social networks? Flickr has more than 5,000 free images, including high-resolution ones.

If nothing else, the below steps help you protect your images from copyright infringement and avoid any legal trouble down the road.
