I'd like to present this ebook written by Steve Heap –  “Getting Started in Stock” – that is aimed at relative beginners to the microstock world and focuses very much on the “how you actually do it” processes.

Here some words of the author: “Over the past years I have learned a lot about microstock photography and the various tips and tricks to get the best out of each site. Some things are obvious – others you only learn about after spending hours reading through forum posts.  Save your time – all those tips and tricks are now available in an easy step by step guide to Microstock and how you can make money from your photos. Learn how to get into the business, follow the workflow describing how to manage your images, keyword them and get them on-line with the minimum fuss. Finally, jump straight to the time saving tools and web sites such as  Lightburner and DeepMeta to effectively manage your portfolio.”
