    Anybody know of any experiences with places/ sites like this??
    Good? bad ?........ legit!? if your not comfortable commenting on "this" site thats ok, I'm just asking about sites like them in general.
    Would you trust them? Or is there a red flag in there somewhere?
    Thanks

    Not sure about that site in particular but photo stock sites are common enough - there are a few "top" ones.
    Essentially its selling your shots at really low prices, but with a chance of attracting more buyers for them at the same time. Some people like them and others don't = essentially you have to remember that any shot you put up to a site like that is essentially "lost" to you in that you can no longer command a higher price for it in the future (the legal side I am not certain on, but I am assuming that you retain all your legal rights to any photos on thier site - but that would be one thing to really check - always keep your rights!)

    It's up to you really; with sites like this, you'll find yourself in a position to pay to sell and to be in charge of all the marketing. You could look into a shopping cart and your own site..
