The free app that turns your iPhone photos into cash
Use Stockimo to upload your photos and we’ll sell them on Alamy, the world’s largest website for picture buyers, where images sell from $1 to $20,000. Stockimo is the first choice app for creative people who take photos using their mobile phones, want to make money and showcase their work to a global audience.
Alamy already knows how to sell pictures, paying out $140M to photographers since it began, so you’ll be joining an established global marketplace where photos sell.
Shoot what you love and be as creative and adventurous as you like. Submit interesting places and people and of-the-moment photography that documents the world. What you take is up to you!
Uploading is so quick you can turn a spare moment into spare cash.
How it works:
Upload your smartphone photos
Describe each image with a caption and tag key features and concepts to be used as ‘keywords’ to help customers find your photos
Submit and get your photos rated
Photos are rated out of 4, if you get an average score above 2 the photo gets in
If your photos are accepted, they’ll go on sale at Alamy.com and its distribution network
The app will tell you when your photos sell
You’ll get paid your share every month if you’ve made over $10
There’s an early bird offer where you’ll earn 40% commission on every sale, after that it’s 20%.
You keep the copyright, your photos stay on Alamy to sell again and again.
Very simple to use
Upload filtered images, including photos taken with other apps (Instagram, Hipstamatic, Snapseed etc)
Images get rated by photo experts
Build your portfolio and put your creativity to the test
iPhone 4s and above

Needs major improvement
This app is so poorly designed it is nearly impossible to use. When you upload a photo, it only shows up to you pixelated and horrible, as if only a thumbnail was saved. If that was how it was actually uploaded, it's no wonder the photos are being rejected! There is also no Q&A or help section within the app. On top of all that, you only get 20% of your sales through them. The only, barely positive thing I can say is that, because it's run by Alamy, their quality standards for the photos themselves are higher, which I appreciate. However, if they can't manage to increase the quality standard of their own app, it feels hypocritical for them to deny any photo. There are no redeeming qualities of this app nor advantages over any other photo selling app to warrant the horrible 20% payout. I doubt I will continue using this app, unless it is updated and fixed soon. Foap has a weird rating system, but is at least usable!
UPDATE. After going through their app further, their rating system is atrocious and the judges must be imbeciles. Grainy, poorly lit cat instagrams get accepted and sold, while crisp, clear images get denied, sometimes with extremely low scores. I seriously wish I could give below one star. Absolute garbage.
Easy to use
About half my pics are getting accepted. I'm not clear what the criteria are, but it's so easy to use the app that I figure why not upload the random pics I would be taking anyway for fun. The 20% payout seems low, but again it's worth it for the easy interface and fact that they take iPhone photos unlike some stock websites. If you're trying to make a living doing stock photography, I wouldn't recommend this app. If you enjoy taking iPhone pictures and want to make an extra buck off of pictures you would have taken anyway, I'd highly recommend it.
There's something very wrong here
As has been noted well by other eaters, the app itself has major flaws. All of my submissions appear very grainy and blurry after they load. Is this just a thumbnail? Is this the way they appear to the "voters"? If your submission is rejected (and it seems like that's very common) do you know why? No, you don't; there's no feedback or viability in the app. This is quite different from the parent company, Alamy, and their web-based platform. They have tough quality standards and give clear feedback on your photos so you know how to correct them and ultimately be successful. Stokimo's app and/or the process need a total overhaul. I've asked for my account and images to be deleted.
