Last year I first read about iStockPhoto when Zeldman wrote about them. iStockPhoto isn't your typical online source of royalty-free stock photography. What makes them a bit different is that they're more of a cooperative. Once you are acccepted (after submitting sample images) you can upload photos that others can license for use. It costs 50¢ US for each image, which is a bargain. The artist gets 10 of those cents which can be used for their own downloads-that's the cooperative part. There are some very nice images there and new things are being constantly uploaded. The self-serving part of this item is that I now have a bunch of images up there under my online name of chrisxero. Why should I hoard stuff when it can be shared?
