    I believe a debit card will work just fine. There are FAQs on paypal website. you can check them out.

    Not so sure about the GO card because I do not have one. I am using UOB Debit Card so it works fine for me.

    Am using a POSB mastercard/debit + linked to my savings account. And they only change withdrawla fee if you withdraw less than SGD$200 worth out. Thier exhange rate is always about 2-3 cents lower than the mean exhange rate though so thats where the fee's go to.

    Is there any advantage for our stock photography if we upload the photos on flicker website? I mean somebody have seen your photos in flicker and contact you for the downloads. Just curious to know.

    Very rare cases although it happened to me once.

    Most of the time, designers who uses stock are pressed for time. In addition to that aspect, the trouble of doing a TT (telegraphic transfer) is troublesome. Unless your image is very unique that is worth all that trouble.

    Stock images are all e-commerced enabled. Speed is essential.

    If i am not wrong, there are 2 types of exclusive.

    The first type is you upload the pictures exclusively to them. When the pictures are downloaded, they are paid much higher.

    The second type is when they invite you to shoot exclusively for them. I think at that level, they pay you a certain amt for upload. For this type, not every photographer can make it to this grade unless you are really good.

    FOr other details, check the website. I cant remb that much.

    Yes.. you will get 20cents for every upload only if you are an exlusive phtographer to DT (Dreamstime). i am now exclusive to DT so i am getting 20cents for each upload.

    It just looks free... but the currency rate paypal use is not good. Anyway paypal is easy to manage. as along as you have 200+usd in your paypal account, transfer to singapore banks are free and take around 4 business days.

    i am uploading to 8 agencies...

    Shutterstock is the best for me, dreamstime second and stockxpert is the third. you may view some infor from my signature

    best wishes,

    I believe the cheapest rate you can cash of a USD cheque is about SGD$10-15. so it only makes economic sense if you have more than SGD$10-15 in your paypal account in order to make some cents out of it, and that's after factoring the currency conversion rate from USD to SGD which the banks will fleece u another 300-400 pips (or 100 pip = 1cent in layman terms) off your exchange rate....

    is the color space indicated in the Exif data? all of mine says Uncalibrated. does it mean the monitor is uncalibrated or photoshop or the camera? i'm a little confused...

    sori if i OT abit.
