    123RF requires id as well and maybe Fotolia - so if you're going to submit there, keep that scan.

    i don't know about istock, but when i signed up for shutterstock, they asked for either a copy of my ID or my credit card info to veryify my address. I gave my credit card, since it's the same thing i'd use to buy stock anyway.

    so for shutterstock, i'd suggest doing that if you're uncomfortable with your ID.

    Yeah better safe than sorry, but a US passport has less information on it than a drivers license. Unless they want to create a fake passport dont think they can do much with it.
