You take a lot of pictures on your phone, right? Now there’s a way you can turn those pictures into cash.

Americans have gone camera crazy now that half of us have smartphones with quality built-in cameras. A lot of times the pictures on our phones just stay there. But there are opportunities to make money on those photos.

The Boston Globe  reports marketing companies want the pictures you take on your smartphone. They’re seen as an ultra low-cost source for stock photos for advertising in a magazine or other commercial uses.

SupShot.com is one new startup for Apple (no Android yet) that lets you come up with a fee you’ll sell your photos for. People typically charge flat fees of $15 to $30 per photo. SupShop takes a 30% commission to help you sell your photos to advertisers and marketers.

Other services doing the same thing include SnapWi.Re,  ScoopShot and Rawporter.

So how about it…are you a shutterbug? You can turn pictures on your smartphone into money!
