I didn't know this small little blog of mine attracted the attention from 123RF. Their admin actually made a comment on my blog. Thanks.

When I first discovered 123RF, I was very happy. Their uploading process is simple, although the time it takes maybe a bit longer. My acceptance ratio there is also high. But after a while, my excitement died down. My photos don't sell well there.

I know a local advertising agency is actually using a lot of photos from 123RF, so I am sure they are a trustworthy agency, but my sales there is really low.

I have 210 photos in 123RF, whilst only a mere 62 at iStock, but my monthly income from iStock is much higher.

Different agencies have different types of customers, so maybe I am contributing the wrong type. :(

Anyway, over more than a year, I did get paid twice so far, so no complaints :)


  1. Did you try faving your images?

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

    I chanced upon your post over at CS.

    All the best :)
