Hi Leilah!

Great to hear from you!

I have not used iStock myself, and came across it while learning about crowd sourcing. So, unfortunately, I am unable to tell you more than will be on the website. What I understand about it, though, is that one can paste one's photos onto it, and, if your photos are downloaded by someone, then you receive a certain amount of money.

Good luck!

Kind regards
