Review: Scoopshot connects you with media outlets in need of images

Take photos, upload them, and make a couple of dollars selling them to news outlets and Web sites through this iOS app.

Scoopshot is an automated photo selling tool, allowing you to take shots of things in your neighborhood or newsworthy events near your home, and then sell them for $2.50 to other members of the site. The process is streamlined enough that you can theoretically make money whenever you are out taking photos, assuming the images are deemed newsworthy or useful to someone who is tapping into the database created by developers.

After downloading, you'll need to create an account for Scoopshot, and then enter in all of your information. After your account is set up, you can take photos and then tag them, choose a category, and write about why you think it is newsworthy. When done, the image is uploaded to the database and tagged for sale. You can then make $2.50 by default by submitting your images for sale. Other users will also upload "tasks," which you can submit images for. An example is "funny signs." If you had a good example of a funny sign near your home, you could make a quick $2.50 for snapping it with your phone.

While the payment may seem small, Scoopshot makes the process so easy that it's worth your while, assuming you don't plan on doing this for a living. The process is fast, the app makes it relatively easy, and the number of needs out there is growing constantly. It's a very good app for iOS photo enthusiasts.
