Photrade – Make Money From Your Photos

This is the featured advertiser on ShoeMoney. Put your company here!


PhotradePhotrade is a really sweet new service in beta I discovered at Blogworld. Its a free place to host your images BUT it makes you money. Its kind of like flikr meets mugshots meets cafepress…… and a lot more. I asked Krista Neher who was at their booth to summarize Photrade:

So thats pretty cool huh? Basically you just upload your photos (there java uploader kicks butt):

Then once your photos are uploaded you can easily share them:

Once you share them you can choose where to place the ad on your photo (if you want to do that)

Then this is what it looks like:

SO just to review:

  1. You upload and host your photos on photrade
  2. You get paid a cpm on how many views your photos have (if they are on forums or wherever you still get paid!)
  3. Someone clicks on your photo comes to photrade and clicks on a ad (like Google Adsense) you get a revshare of that.
  4. Someone buys your photo (which you set the price on).
  5. Someone buys a shirt or other merchandise right from the site you get paid!

Now currently photrade is in closed beta but I happened to score a couple hundred invites! If you would like a invite to try this service leave a comment saying so and I will send you one (until they are gone).

I am out of invites ;)

    I would love an invite.
    My wife is a professional photographer. I’m always trying to get her to take stock photos to earn some extra cash. This is an interesting way for her to promote her work and to make some extra coin.

    I would love an invite if you still have some to send out. This service looks great, and it would be a great way to make some extra revenue. Good thing I have a new Digital Camera coming to me, so I can start snapping some photos and maybe make some money too.
    Thanks for sharing your invites.

    so-many-money-making-options… this one should rock on my template design site, virtualy every article has a prominent image. Time to put those forum members to work! Thanks for the heads up Jeremy

    its an interesting service but I wouldnt want anybody to buy my personal pictures. It depends what kind of pictures you are selling. They really have to be careful of setting themselves apart in terms people trying to take obscene pics and selling it there for a price. Do you know what the conditions are for posting a picture?

  5. SEO Vibe

    I forgot to ask, how will copyright be protected? I’m picturing a dozen users raiding stock photo sites to make money with, the more evil ones using the stock photo site affiliate program to make even more by writing “or visit such and such site for thousands of similar images” etc

    Would love to try this out, I think that it’s pretty interesting how affiliate programs are expanding to areas certainly over the last 10yrs I wouldn’t think of finding them and to much much broader bases of internet users.

    not sure if i already entered a comment :| if so you can delete the rest, sorry for the trouble.

    I would like an invite as well. Just the other day I was writing a blog post that I needed a somewhat generic image for and this would have been perfect.

    It seems kind of difficult to make the money off this site. It’s already hard enough for people to click on ads when they’re at the actual blog, so what makes this any easier..

    -Mike

  12. Daria

    I love the idea of this type of photo site! I have a ton of pictures on my computer that I have been uploading to another site, but there is no option to make a few bucks with it!

    If you have any invites left, I would greatly appreciate one!

    By the way, I’m a new subscriber to your site and all I can say is “WOW!” Kudos!

    Hi Worknplay

    This is Krista from Photrade. We have a number of different privacy options. You can set prices individually or choose not to sell any of your photos. We also have privacy protection, so you can set images to private and only allow friends and family to view them.

    Per the concern about obscene pics, we have adult content flags (you have to be logged in and over 18 to view).

    Let me know if you have any other thoughts/comments!

    – Krista

  14. Mido

    This really nice site..specially for us as blogger and webmaster. As we can upload photos there and use it in our website saving site size & getting money at the same time!

  15. Krista Neher

    This is Krista from Photrade.

    You can set any price or choose not to sell individual images – so you can disable selling from your personal pictures :) You can also set pictures to private so that only friends and family can view them.

    In terms of obscene pics, we have adult contect flags in which case you must be logged on and over 18 to view the photos.

    Let me know if you have any other questions/comments.

  16. Krista Neher

    You can select watermarking for your image in user options. Using this selection you images will have a Photrade logo watermarked across the center. We have more great image protection features (can’t talk about them yet – but very cool) coming over the next few months…

    Hey man, just found your site. I would love an invite if there are any left, just getting started in this business. Need all the help I can get. :) Thanks.

  18. Jishuku

    I tried posting a comment earlier but it doesn’t show up for me, so sorry if I make a double post now.
    It seems like a nice idea for a site, and I would love an invite if you still have any. Thank you.

    I’m using Shareapic for some time now, which is pretty similar to Photrade. But I’m really dissapointed in it because images are loading extremely slowly most of the time, if they load at all. You don’t need invitations for shareapic (affiliate link :p ), so its easier to join.

    But shoe, if you got an extra invitation for photrade, I’d love to have it :)

  20. Dawn

    I would like to know more and would greatly appreciate the invite. This sounds like a great opportunity. Thank you in advance

    p.s. sorry if the comment is double-posted

    Hi Shoe, Thanks for the heads up on Photrade. It sounds really cool. If you have an invite left please shoot one over. I would love to check PhoTrade out.

    Thanks in advance.

    Harshad,

    We fixed this. It had previously only worked if you typed that URL without the final slash (“/”), thanks for the heads up!

    Andy (photrade team)

  24. Mubin

    I have been trying to get a script similar to shareapic for awhile now.

    Im surprised that phototrade can pay for cpm on forums and other webapges though. Doesn’t seem very feasible.

  25. Mike

    I like the site; it’d be interesting to see how quickly this service is adopted.
    Please shoot an invite if you can Jeremy.

    Thanks!

  26. chris hanaka

    Photrade is a really brilliant idea and timely as well, I met them at Blogworld as well and can’t wait to see the site take off.

  27. Shivanand

    I doubt you have any left, but hey, nice service, although I think what one can make is quite less, but is a step in the right direction for budding photographers. no more waiting for “god” to approve your photos, like on some *cough* photo sharing sites. The first thing I thought, dang someone beat me to doing this! :)

    Can you send me an invite if you have any left?

  28. Björgvin

    Hey,
    I´m always looking for ways to share my photos and wouldn´t mind if you had one of those invites lying around. Thanks and thank you for your posts.

  29. Dennis

    emm.. pretty interesting..

    Myself is a photographer and this is a good news to. I hope I could get your invitation very soon!

    Thanks!

    – Dennis.

    If only i had a $1 fer every 1,826,000 Views i’ve had on Flickr I’d be able to hold up a Bigger Check than Shoemoney!! ;)) Sure I would love to have an Invite Thankyou!!

    why limit to photos ? allow graphic designers to publish their original work and get paid. maybe a child site, just a thought.
