Hellow

This my first time i call for advice and ideas for
stock photography at stock photograpy libraries.
I was submit to a three libraries as FotoLibra in
UK,Photo Direct in UK,and PhotoStockPlus in Canada.
Iam over 2 years member there,and till now i didn't
get any penny.I am semi-profisional photographer,and most of my work
based on Point&Shoot.
I think my photos are good,even i am an invalid man,i travel even
aboard Israel,as i visited at Prague,London,Paris,Moldova,Croatia,
Bulgary and even Switzerland.

So,Someone could help me and tell if someone has succid in
sale photos?
What should i do?I spent much money for upload images.

Thank you
Zvi

Fotolibra charges a subscription and is based on the premise that
anyone's family snaps are highly saleable. Fotolibra collect the
subscription fee but don't appear to actually make many sales. They
used to have a forum attached to them and that is gradually becoming
a stand alone general stock discussion forum independent of the
company. You will be able to get real people's experiences there:

I recently read of one person that had stopped subscribing to
Fotolibra and was delighted to have made $5 on iStock in his first
month having not made a penny from FL in two years. I think that most
members are hobbyists who have been tempted to sign up by adverts in
Amatuer Photographer etc.

I would hesitate to call it a scam but they are always very reluctant
to give any details of sales. My suspicion is that the business
depends very much more on its income from would-be stock
photographers than from commission from stock sales. Fotolibra is
proud to have BAPLA recognition but this validation is in my opinion
misleading and used as something of a snare to attract the unwary.

Why not try Alamy?
