    i saw a person called getjimmy selling an ebook in the buy/sell folder couple of days back.. i am kind of confused about his method so i sent his thread link to iStockphotos support team saying that an indian guy is able to get paid without even taking his own photos.. so my question is "how is it possible ?" i'm still waiting for their reply.. in the mean time what do you guys think about this ? is it really possible to find a way to make $$$$ in istockphotos without having our own photos.

    What's your point in sending that message to the owner of the site?

    If you are really interested to know about this, why don't you try to buy the ebook from him and ofcourse hez giving double money back guarantee too?!

    I think you are a veteran member here but try to act very smart by not paying a penny to getjimmy but try to know about that task.

    Did you read the whole thread?

    He clearly said that hes buying photos from people, with resell rights etc, so it basically makes him the owner of every pic that he buys.

    I also notified getjimmy on YM, lets see his response.

    Beats me. Also any problem with Indian guys making money? E books are sold because the author normally had information that others do not have, that's why E books cost money. Getjimmy might have found a method to earn money from this and hence the e book. I too wonder the motive behind sending a message to the owner of the site. For me if I am really that curious, I would just buy a copy of Jimmy's e book.

    You can always make good amount of money online if you can find something new, which not many are aware of and I think getjimmy managed to find something cool. However, the method may not work anymore if iStockPhotos find it and if they think it's not legitimate as you've reported them. But, he buy the photographs and so............I guess he owns them and it's okay but let's see what iStockPhotos have to say. After all, they are the ones to set the rules for their site.
