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

Images get rated by photo experts
Build your portfolio and put your creativity to the test
iPhone 4s and above

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been a photographer for Alamy for seven or so years and when they released this app I was very excited at the prospect of adding to and building my stock portfolio quickly as I like shooting with my iPhone. Unfortunately the Alamy and Stockimo systems are completely different and I’ve been disappointed that only certain types of photographs have been accepted through Stockimo. The choosing of images seems to become very random and sometimes I just don't want to have my time wasted. It takes effort to edit, caption, and keyword the images that are highly likely going to be rejected. It also means that I still have to carry around my big DSLR.
I have gradually uploaded photos and had around 600 accepted over the past year or two (probably around half of my pics are accepted to be put up for sale). I’m averaging around $20/month in sales (ranging from just a few bucks to over $100). Probably not going to become a major source of income, but my experience has been pretty good.
Waste of time
It’s just annoying that they keep rejecting every single photo i uploaded. I wonder how they rate the photos because the 20-ish photos I uploaded were either a 2.0 or a 1.7. At first I thought to myself that my photos were just not good enough, but then I uploaded a photo without editing it, and uploaded the same one with a lot of editing and improving (contrast, brilliance, etc.), which produced a drastically better photo. Both got a 1.7. Like WTH. And if you look at the “favorite” part many are crappy. So either I’m really that bad at taking photos or they got really bad taste.
