818: take hundreds of pictures and post the best pics on a stock photo site for money. Then post low res versions all over the internet, complete with a link to your stock photo stuff.

For an actual digital camera, this is a pretty good list of sites.a.
Shutterstock allows you to keep your copyrights protected, so it’s up to you to set the rights on the photos. Shutterstock also gives credit to the image’s owners, which is a major plus to protect your ownership and market your brand.

My friend who is talented photographer with a record of some award winning pictures is not making any substantial money from stock photos, so how an averege Joe the Amateur Photographer can make it? I might be entirely wrong here I don't know ...

If I could make 10$ a day it would be enough to make a living here, Gert style ;)
I have my pics sorted, filed, divided by places, topics and years they have been taken. Underwater photos separately, garden separately, etc. The only thing unsorted is related to camera evolution - the older the picture the smaller size obviously. I doubt a bulk upload makes sense, as your chance to sell any is as good as keywords you add to each picture. And that might be time consuming.
On the other hand, while posting here I could upload a pic or two, and then, who knows ....
