I am currently on Fotolia, Dreamstime, StockXpert, 123RF, Bigstockphoto, and hopefully Shutterstock when I can apply again. What other ones are really worth the time? I only have about 60-70 photos and illustrations that I would submit since I have only been doing this for roughly a month.

I cannot submit on Istock because I am not 18 (I'm 17)

For me ISTOCK and dreamstime are the two best. Bigstock is OK and I have no luck on Fotalia. I do upload to two smaller sites Canstock and Lucky Oliver. Canstock is a slow site but I've been there for a long time and I've a lot pics there. LO is new and I'm hoping it pics up.

Oops forgot to mention Istock.
I registered on Canstock but their traffic was pretty low so I didn't upload anything.
I'll look into LO, it seems like a lot of people go there but they don't have much traffic either.

i think you pretty much got 'em all.  You could try lucky oliver though.

Everything under 'up and coming' is pretty slow, but lucky oliver, canstock and 123RF are the better ones in my opinion.

I've been doing this for about a month now - here's my input.

My best performers are SS, IS, DT, and FT. SS accounts for about 70% of my income, with IS at 20% and DT and FT at 5% each. I have images on BS, 123RF, and Crestock, but no longer bother with these moribund sites - any place that cannot possibly get me $1/file/month is not worth my time.

Well I have signed up on Lucky Oliver. I will upload 20 or so and judge by how they do if I should upload the rest.

Best performers for me are FPics, FT, DT & BS. with FP ahead in terms of revenue.

Alright I have sent in my app for Lucky Oliver and am uploading some trial files on Featurepics

Call me crazy, but I just don't get Lucky Oliver. For a company to come so late to the game, with nothing new to differentiate themselves, instead choosing to offer a LOW commission to try to grow their business just doesn't get me excited to see them succeed.

Feature Pics is one I hope succeeds and is the only site with low sales that I am contributing to.
