I am just curious how did you find this site? Years ago I saw an advert banner promoting photos just for 1USD on versiontracker.com site and that was my catch...

I found it back in '04, I thought it was a personal photo storage site like Photobucket.  But I completely forgot about it.

Then in '06, a friend of mine told me about a someone he knows that makes around $800 a month on this site.

 I came to sign up, only to find out that I already had a username from my first visit.  Surprisingly, the 3 images I uploaded didn't get accepted. LoL

Had heard about it a few years ago and downloaded a few photos, but it was MrRoboto that made me start uploading...

I was thinking of starting a business 'retouching' photos and was in need of some that required retouching. I found a double page ad in Photoshop User that said images could be had for $0.50. When I got here I was hard pressed to find something to retouch and then noticed you could upload. So, on a lark, I did...the rest is history

When I registered Adobe CS, there was a link to iStock and an offer of a few credits to try it out.

I heard about it from another Art Director I worked with just over 2 years ago. I finally got the guts to start contributing vectors July of last year.

I came here four years ago looking for a rock climbing image. I still haven't found the image I'm after, but I think its been time well spent.

There was an article in Popular Photography magazine about stock photography. It gave some other sites also, but I'm glad I chose istock. Here's the article online

I saw it cussed and discussed on a Flickr Central thread about a year ago.  I didn't think much more of it because I figured that there was no money in it for folks who weren't superstar full-time photographers, so decided not to sign up.  A year later, I spotted another thread on Flickr in the Strobist group, and thought "what the heck - can't hurt to try it"  so I did.
 
I have been pleased with my results so far.
