Make money from your stunning iPhone photos with Foap

Today’s mobile phones take better pictures than ever beforeand with the small and compact size it seems that you always have your phonehandy when a great shot comes about. If you’re a loyal PhoneArena reader,you’ve definitely been blown away by the images featured in our “Cool images,taken with your cell phone” segment.


A new service called Foap is looking to harness the powerand creativity of today’s smartphone camera and bring it to the stock photoworld. Foap charges buyers $10 per photo and the photographer (potentially you)gets $5 from each purchase. They just launched their iPhone app in the AppleApp Store and plan on releasing an Android version relatively shortly.


Now before you go and upload your entire library, there aresome guidelines. First of all, Foap checks out your photos and approves themfor the site. All images need to be at least 1,000 pixels in height or length.Photos that Foap feels are inappropriate, are too similar to the currently availableimages, or just plain don’t look good, whether it be because of sharpness,exposure, poor composition, or otherwise, won’t be accepted.

Finally, while youmay think your Instagram vintage filters made last night's dessert really “pop”on Facebook, stock image buyers aren’t interested. Foap does not accept anyimages with filters and frames added to them unless it’s just a filter that wasused to increase contrast or sharpen colors.

Well consider this... st-popular-camera-on-flickr.html - Not to mention the 4S takes even more amazing photos than the 4. Granted, no real optical zoom but the photos are still really nice.

There's getting more money making app like this and few days ago i saw an app tutorial in Youtube name Moo Locker on how to earn money by unlocking your phone lockscreen. The video is about how to make money with just a swipe on your phone lock screen. It is very simple where what you need to do is just swiping your phone, download the app given and browse through the app. You will be rewarded coins when you interact with the app downloaded and with the coins, you can redeem your reward in terms of cash, mobile prepaid or shopping vouchers. I have try it and it's real and cool, you guys can try it :)
