I feel used (sniff) and a question on microstock?
SO I hang out on a gimp forum as well as living here, and someone asked how a certain image from a web page could be made using Gimp.
I wrote up a tutorial and attached the result:
The guy comes back three days later and says Thanks for tut and especially thanks for the image, as IStockPhoto wanted $12.00 for it.
Anyway - Does anyone here know how this microstock stuff works, and if you can make money at it? (It took me 5 times longer to write the tutorial than to make the image... grrrr.)
I searched that site for maps compass rose and cartography and there are 1000's of images, most much poorer (IMOO) than the stuff I see posted here...
