How do I edit an existing photo and then sell it?
Some photos are ready to be edited. If you don’t have a specific photo available to edit, try starting with an old photo and work your way to the more “interesting” photos. Also, choose an edit type that will fit your particular style.
If a photo is already on a photo sharing site (like Pinterest), you can save it to your computer or email it via the browser and then sell it through ebay.
How do I sell a photo that’s already been published?
If you’re already selling photos, see Selling Yourself or use ebay.com to sell photos. Don’t worry it won’t take the same amount of time and effort.
How do I sell photos on the web?
Most of the website selling services use a mobile app called Evernote.
If you have one set up, it’s really easy. You can see all of your photos, edit them, and then just sell them as is or edit them with the same settings.
Click on a tag that says I like your tag.
When you click the tag, you see an edit screen with options for the photo you want to edit. When you get to editing, choose the photo you want to sell using the edit you wish to do.
Then, click Buy Photos.
If you would like to add tags to it, click on the tag and you’ll see a screen to sort and tag it in a specific fashion.
