Well if you do just make sure you opt out of their Dollar  Photo Club (DPC) because that's a total travesty where they sell your image all rights all sizes for $1.00 and you get a fraction of that.

As to whether it's worth it? Well some people rate them highly I personally never made more than $15 a month with over 800 images.

decide for yourself.
Maybe you shoot the type of images FT buyers like, maybe not.

For me they are my 2nd best earner and still going strong

For me they were one of the worst earners. Closed my account long time ago. DPC is something to read and learn for you.

I could never increase my revenue there. I shot mostly studio mixed with landscape/nature.  From 800 images to 3,000 images I still only made $50 a month. My rank (which they used to place you in the search) changed so frequently that it controlled my growth.  One day I am at 1200 and the next at 4500.  In my opinion its an unethical agency right up there with Deposit Photos.  If you speak the truth about FT on any forum and "THE CHAD" finds out through his moles who lurk here spying on anyone who says anything negative about FT he will close your account, mainly due to the embarrassment (I CALL IT TRUTH) you levy on them.

Nobody can tell you whether it is worth it for you - it depends on how your particular images will sell, which cannot be predicted.  If you want to find out, submit some and see what happens.

For me the main work is making the images and keywording, so my approach is to upload anywhere where you can make some money as long as they treat contributors reasonably.  From my experience. I would say every agency in the poll at the right from Canstock up is worth the small extra time for uploading (except maybe iS nowadays).  You will have to decide whether you like their policies yourself.

Are you saying that DP and FT treat contributors reasonably?

If you do, make sure you're opted out of DPC, that's bad for all contributors.
