Well well well just posted an article about making money out of photos and then started researching (That's not how things shouldn go .... A lesson for me!!). I found the link tried the website and thought it was ok to share among you people ....
(shall I remove the post ?... well let me leave it for now!)
Then I found some sites posted in this blog that helps making some money with your photos stock. Let me list them here:

1. BigStockPhoto
BigStockPhoto requires a photo seller to take the Photographer Test after studying the Tutorial pages. If you pass you?ll be able to upload photos, which will be reviewed by the editors. When users download them, you earn fifty cents each time (or up to $60 for some downloads if you have elected to also sell photos under our Special Licensing agreements). BigStockPhoto mail checks or make payment to you via Paypal or MoneyBookers.
2. Dreamstime
Dreamstime requires that the image must be at least 3MP in size or more; it must be RGB saved at highest JPG quality 12. You should also have a model release on all people recognizeable in your image. Sellers get 50-80% from each sale made. Payment is via bank check, Paypal, and MoneyBookers.

iStockPhoto requires that the images be RGB JPG format only. Required file sizes: the bigger, the better. 300 dpi 5? x 7? is optimal. 640×480 images are not usable by most graphic artists.

Check requests are processed at the beginning of each month and the checks are sent out at the middle of the month.
5. ShutterStock
Shutterstock pays 25 cents per download and it also has a referral program that users can also earn from. ShutterStock also accepts stock footage. Images must be at least 2.5 megapixel to be accepted. But new photographers? minimum size is 4.0MP. Pay checks are mailed monthly.
To make the most out of making money online with stock photography make sure that your image is original and truly copyrighted by you. All trademarks must be removed. This includes logos, brands and entities with copyright or trademarked elements. This many also extend to trademarked products such as cast sculptures, toys, architecture and other elements of design. This is necessary to avoid future legal problems.
Always check the sellers? portion for frequently asked questions, you better check it out first before trying to publish your work and sell your photos. This will help a lot in clarifying whatever you want to know about how to make money online from that stock photo site.
Also, don?t forget to know what are the most in-demand image subjects to avoid wasting your time uploading least requested images.
Sounds great and I hope this is useful to you. Good Luck!
