If you love taking pictures — and are relatively good at it, you could earn a little cash with a new stock photo app.

Users upload raw photos (meaning no Instagram filters), tag them (the more the better) and wait for approval. Once cleared, the photos go on the Foap Market for $10 each. Five for Foap and $5 for the user.
The Foap market is open to any user looking to buy stock photos. It has system of credits for frequent buyers to save when buying in bulk. For buyers who can’t find what they’re looking for, can ask the Foap community to submit photos.
It launched less than a month ago in the Nordic countries. So far the app has had more than 10,000 downloads and more than 40,000 images uploaded.
Obviously, don’t think this will make you tons of money. It’s just a good way to make a little pocket money and can help you put all your pictures to better use.
An Android version of the app is also coming very soon!
