Sell your vacation photos
Your Instagram followers shouldn’t be the only ones to appreciate your awe-inspiring vacation snaps. Instead, you can make money on vacation by putting those photos to work for you. List your best shots for sale with an online stock photo site such as Istockphoto.com, pond5.com, and Shutterstock.com; then those sites can sell your images to websites, creative directors, travel agencies, and people looking for background images for their blogs. You receive a percentage of the sale, which varies depending on the site listing your photo. Be sure to review the technical requirements before uploading your pictures, as most sites require higher-quality images than you can take with a smartphone. Here’s how to take amazing photos.
