How To Make Money From Instagram Photos

Each one of us has that artistic bug inside us (atleast my social timeline says so) and Instagram compliments it. Simple photograph is turned into an artwork with magical effects so, how about making money from instagram photos. Not everyone but Professionals and Enthusiast can give it a try.

I will mention some services to monetize instagram photos and make some money out of your hobby, interest or whatever.

You will see that in this selection, there are two distinct types of services: 1. those who give us the ability to sell our pictures taken with Instagram in digital format (what we buy is the file for later use) and 2. those who print the photographs and allow us to sell in physical format.

1. Sell Instagram Photos as Canvas Print Art

make money instagram canvas photos falls within the service group who choose to turn our Instagram photos into works of art. Photos are printed on museum-quality canvas with a 1.5 inch-thick frame.

Once registered we have our own gallery that include photos we decide to sell. Prices are decided by the service that ranges from $39.95 for canvas of 12 “x12” up to $79.95 for a 20 “x20”. In order to get higher prices, photos should be eye-catching and attractive enough to be ported to a canvas.

Things to consider: the service is free to use, but for every sale takes 80% and the artist takes the remaining 20% (keep in mind that they take care of printing, packaging and shipping.

That means, in the case of a 12 “x12” canvas, Seller takes $8, but considering that all you have to do is take pictures with Instagram and put there. By the way, we must have PayPal account and payments are monthly or when you reach $100.
