The Democratization of Stock Photography

It's been around for a while. I first heard of iStockPhoto while interning at Cre8tive Group back in 2004 when my co-worker, Peter Cook said "Have you checked out iStock?"

Well, I have plenty of 4MP photographs to upload to iStock (especially from my work in Greece), but haven't found the time to write 10 keywords each. I have learned of other stock photo sites. Some messageboards say they pay better.

I've been told (from by a friend, Andy Didyk, who collects about $50+/month now) is that it's all about the keywords ("People don't search for animal when they want a lion.") and adding a photograph a day for six months.
