Does anyone use

Hi All,

Has anyone come a cross a websire called ViewBug. I only ask because I have been ‘invited’ to share some of my photos there. Any help appreciated.


I’ve been on viewbug years, there’s a lot of good competitions on there… But also a lot of professional photographers that submit a lot better pictures than me.
Needless to say I’ve never won anything


Thank you. That is most helpful

Been on View bug for quite a while. Just a basic free member. Not won any comps yet! :pensive:

Thanks guys. I’m already pissed with the amount of emails they send out and I am not paying to display photos. Just wondered as I had an invitation in my junk mail.

I signed up for a free account and get at least two emails a day from them to go premium, PicFair are the same.

Thanks Philip, I have blocked their emails. I think I will just stick with the two I am on which is Clickasnap and (for now) PicFair. They will do for me.
For anyone who doesn’t know about clickasnap, it is a photo sharing/selling site (a new start-up about 3-4 years ago) and they actually pay you for your photo being viewed. Don’t get too excited as the payment for a ‘paid view’ is 0.4 cents (atm, but has risen twice in the last 18 months) and the image has to be viewed for 5 seconds, but it is money for nothing. It is a good community and the owner/creator is constantly contactable and is genuine.
As an example, I paid for a years ‘Pro’ account (about £50) in February and by the end of this month will already have made that back. You can redeem your money at any point after you have earned $15 (views or sales - not made any sales yet).
Not recruiting or anything - just putting it out there for anyone who might be interested. Happy to answer questions.


@Mavic2Pro never heard of “Clickasnap” will give it a go thanks for the info.

No problem. Just don’t expect to be a millionaire by next week lol. But you do earn money for paid views (a view of 5 seconds). If you want to have a look at my profile:
