Web connections

We live in a world of internet connections. Visitors are brought to one site by links pointing in its direction on third parties content, and the relevancy of an information is judged by the opinion of other web publishers. The links are the engine of internet and as I would like for others to quote my web-site, I will hereby provide a space to link to other web resources I find useful and interesting.

The list is ordered and catergorized as I see fit. This page is in constant changing. The links will open in a new window, unless otherwise desired.

Micro-stock agencies
Dreamtime - My favorite one. The give the best percentage from sale to photographers.
Istockphoto - The first one on the market (or so they say...). Good sales...
Shutterstock - Based on subscription model where all is about the numbers. Good sales at the beginning, but difficult to keep them up or even increase them.
