    Just saw this on a freelancing webiste

    $10 for 200 images !!! I might give them one for that. The biggest worry was the amount of responses they had.

    Sounds interesting, just wondering though how and WHO decides what is accepted? So you go out and shoot for few hrs and upload 200images. They accept 195 and you don't get a penny for it.

    Heh for me as soon as I start reading slightly broken english in a website I simply walk away from anything remotly connected to paying cash over unless I have some validation of the website and its services - like e-bay comments and votes or word of mouth/type recomending the company.

    As for this case in specific - well I know a lot of people get drawn in to the cheaper microstock websites with the offer of easy sale images for cheap cash - but even on their scalings this is very very cheap. $10 for 200 "quality" images sounds tiny - however one thing that I am drawn to is the fact that this ad reads like this is membership to a microstock site (or similar) so is this not infact an advance of $10 to every member uploading 200 images with a view that these images will then be sold on (with I hope royalties to hte photographer of course) after that? Or am I getting the wrong end of the stick here
