Stock Photography


Get at least 33% on every sale. Actual payout will depend on the price of the image paid by the buyer. Minimum guarantee applies to make sure contributors are always fairly compensated, whatever the price is.



Fotolia allows you to sell photos you’ve taken for stock photography usage. For example, if a publisher is looking for a picture of a beach and you uploaded such a picture, the publisher can use Fotolia to purchase the rights to use that picture in its publication and you receive a cut of that money. For a photography hobbyist, this is a great way to earn a few dollars for some of your best photos.


To sell your files on Fotolia you must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Be the exclusive author of every file you upload
  • Own or have authorization for all the rights to the elements represented in your files (e.g. products, people, property)
  • Your account must have been confirmed (by clicking the link included in the confirmation email)


For every image or video sold, you receive a commission determined by your ranking and chosen exclusivity options:

For content sold via our Pay-As-You-Go system you receive between 20% and 63% of the sale price

For content sold via Subscription you will receive 33% of the sale price for images or 35% of the sale price for videos, with a minimum guarantee.

Once you earn 50 Credits you can withdraw them as cash using Paypal or Skrill (previously Moneybookers)*. Fotolia does not charge transaction fees.

Note: To prevent fraud, all members must wait at least 45 days after their first sale before they can withdraw their cash.
