What Is The Shortest Time For Selling One Of My Images?

The other day #4 asked “What is the shortest time for selling one of my images after having it accepted at a stock photo site?” I told her I was pretty sure it was 24 hours; but I thought I’d spend a little time today double checking that fact.

I searched through page after page of information on all three of the stock sites that I currently have images on. I easily found what I was looking for at Dreamstime.com and Fotolia.com; but I just can’t seem to find it at 123RF. [I’m sure I must have missed it somewhere but I have given up on that one; for now.]

Fotolia-Stock-Photo-Pumpkin-PieI was right! The shortest time for
one of my images to sell after
being accepted and appearing
on a stock photo site is one day!
That’s pretty cool if you ask me.

So just for fun here’s a quick list, links included, of a few of my quickest selling stock photos.

Let’s start with Fotolia.com:
