    If your images are that GOOD, try Inmagine, Getty and Photo library.

    I am not sure about big Asian stock agencies but i have been selling through a few micro stock agencies. As you said they sell for a dollar or less, but believe me over time they add up because of the volume. I guess there is no harm trying. You can check out my website if you want to get some links. http://www.ashwinphotosite.com/index.html

    the loyalty is much higher in traditional stock agencies, but it is not easy to get in.

    for microstock image agencies, although the price is lower, but you can have a few hundred or even thousand download each year to make up the earning.

    many people take microstock images agencies as stepping stone or training ground to get into traditional stock agencies. but if your standard can't even get into microstock images agencies or make some decent sales from there, I would say it is very hard to try the traditional stock agencies from the start.

    To have a better idea, perhaps you can try take a entrance test at iStockPhoto,
    after your pass the quiz, you will be asked to submit three photos for application as photo contributor. Sell Stock

    anyway, even for microstock image agencies, it is very competitive nowadays, long gone are the days when you can upload some old photos found in your harddisc and still able to make money from it. It also takes a few years for a newbies to build sizable portfolio and receive earning regularly, in short, you need to work hard and be very persistent to see the results.

    The main issue I have for stock photos in being creative is keywording my pictures....
    Or maybe my picture isn't that great that I can't think of much words out of them....

    there are many tools available, can just use online dictionary and check for synonyms, or thesaurus.
    or post in the forum to ask for help in keywording.
    or take reference from similar photos by other contributors.
