Fotolia, a stock merchant for photos covering a wide variety of categories, has just launched an official app for Android. The service enables those who require images to purchase one and have the rights to use said image elsewhere, providing a monetary contribution to the original submitter. Having the Fotolia Android app installed allows smartphone owners to upload and sell photos they capture while on the move.

The best part about this new app, which joins its counterpart already available for iOS, is that there's no requirement to have photo editing skills or special uploading software installed. Simply select images you wish to throw up to the Fotolia cloud and you're done. It really is that simple and it helps that the service is pretty snappy when it comes to indexing uploaded images and making them available for other users of the service.

According to the Fotolia website, there are nearly 30 million photos available online for purchase. Adding your own photos on the service may just bag you some extra cash on the side, all whilst displaying your work for others to see.
