Hi all, I've been taking photos for couple years now and just recently decided to get into the world of selling stock photography, but I have no idea how to start. What I'd like to know is what kind of photos are constantly in need or what buyers are looking for nowadays . Does portrait photos sell good? Or maybe nature photos? I know I just started and don't expect to make hundreds right away but I just want to have an idea of what to post do that it doesn't seem like I'm wasting time. I don' want to upload like 200 photos and not have a single sale. Thanks in advance!

It would be best to read some of the Adobe guides that can be found at the top of the Adobe Stock Contributors forum page.

To start you should read this:

Then there are videos from Terry White about selling photos:

LIVE - Adobe Stock Portfolio Reviews - YouTube

and follow on to further videos from that.

This would be start!

Bare in mind, selling stock photos and getting sales is not so easy. There are many factors to consider and no easy answer!

If you do start to upload images (and they are accepted, don't expect that this is a 'get rich quick scheme', because for most people, it isn't).
