So, you can start uploading your photos using the App. Yet, we came to find that the default camera application is not so good, and you will have to use another camera application, at least the default one of Smartphone, to capture good photographs.
In the section ‘Wizard’, you can find an option called ‘New Report’. By tapping on that button, you can either choose photographs from the gallery or take fresh ones, and then upload to Clashot servers. You will also have to provide a short but effective description for all photos you upload to Clashot.

And, when a media person or the concerned person of such a firm comes to see your photos, they might purchase your photographs. If they do so, corresponding amount shall be credited. You can withdraw money later using PayPal. You can view statistics about the account in the ‘Profile’ Section of Clashot.

On the other hand, when it comes to the buyers’ perspective, the process of getting impressive images for your firm is quite simple using Clashot for Android or Clashot for iOS. Along with the mentioned part, there is a tab in the App, called ‘Feed’, where you can see the images your friends have uploaded. Alternatively, you can check out trending photographs as well. In that way, if you come to find some impressive photographs that are powerful enough to get attraction of readers, you can click on the ‘Cart’ button to buy that photograph. Fortunately, for both Photographer and customer, price of one photograph is $0.99! Obviously, this amount seems satisfactory, as it can give you decent earnings in a less time itself.
