We have joined PhotoDune not so long ago and were surprised how fast this website is growing. As part of Envato Market, PhotoDune is a good source of stock images and should be considered by all stock photographers and illustrators. Not all types of stock photos sell here, but you should be happy with the reward this site can offer. Easy upload process including reliable FTP, simple navigation with straight forward editing of your already accepted stock images.
In order to become PhotoDune Contributor, you need to follow these steps:
- visit PhotoDune Contributor's Page and register as a Member;
- read the Authoring Tutorial (an overview of some important information on uploading, copyright and selling);
- take the Author Quiz (to ensure that you have understood the authoring tutorial - it is very simple);
- once passed, you must first submit your portfolio for review (not required if you wish to sell to other Envato marketplaces) - a zipped folder containing 5 – 15 photographs that are an accurate reflection of your photographic portfolio. Photographs submitted in your portfolio are not automatically placed for sale on PhotoDune website and do not need to be accompanied by release forms. Once your .zip file is ready, submit your portfolio.
- once accepted, you can start uploading more of your content.
It may take take up to a week for your images to be reviewed and as a non-exclusive contributor you receive 33% on each sale (50-70% for Exclusive Contributors).
Great website with many features, and what is most important, with excellent financial reward opportunity for stock photographers. Contributors with skills, in the field of graphic design, 3D rendering, website theme design, videographers or music creators will find their place for selling stock media on other parts of Envato Market, such as ThemeForest, CodeCanyon, VideoHive, AudioJungle, GraphicRiver, 3DOcean or ActveDen.
