Hi All,

I would like to start of by mentioning that I have no images up for sale directly or in any microstock agency at the moment. I have been doing some browsing of selling directly through external companies and have created a resource I hope many will find useful.

Here is a list of companies that provide services (Websites, Printing, Advertising ect) for selling photos directly:


* http://www.ifp3.com/index.cfm
* http://www.instaproofs.com/home/index.html
* http://www.photoshelter.com/
* http://www.ktools.net/
* http://www.fotomoto.com/
* http://www.photodeck.com
* http://www.adpic-solutions.de/index.php
* http://www.clustershot.com/
* http://www.avidimages.net/
* http://www.viewbook.com
* http://www.zenfolio.com
* http://www.smugmug.com
* http://www.viewbook.com
* http://www.stockmediaengine.com
My personal favourite from reading and browsing through their site would have to be Fotomoto. Fotomoto provides you and your clients with a friendly and very well polished store, not to mention they print and ship your images for only %15 of sale price (after printing cost). Fotomoto also have a variety of sizes and materials to print on. You can see a working example of Fotomoto at http://jmfox.viewbook.com/images_by_jonathan_fox. Fotomoto isn't exactly designed for microstock but can be very handy if your interested in selling images such as Landscape, Wildlife, Cultures ect.

From roaming around the forum, Ktools seems to be very popular. However unlike Fotomoto Ktools charges a once off and upfront fee of $249US for their photo store and a further $95US each for Photo Show and Photo Host.

I hope this resource comes in handy. Any feedback on adventures into selling directly or other ways of selling directly would be pleasant, as I am willing to update this post if requested.

Kind Regards
Will Dutt

I dont know what you are trying to sell here or promote, selling prints is not all that easy you know and there is little deamnd for it.

No no no, I am not trying to sell or promote anything. I just made a resource and though some may find it handy. Just trying to be helpful ;)

I used to read that fotomoto only paid out till you reach an amount, but i just checked the faq, it seems one can request payout anytime. It sounds good to give it a try.

From the website, fotomoto is not working with webpage with xxxx.wordpress.com..any free webpage that will work with fotomoto?

I am not quite sure, you could try contacting fotomoto or by asking a question on their community.

I know viewbook (another method of selling directly) has websites from $4 which work with fotomoto.
