Do mobile stock photos really sell? Can I use a photo from a smartphone in a advertisement or on my social channels? Is the quality good enough to use it in print campaigns? I was skeptical as well but I have start selling my images via the Fotolia Instant app (our Review) with some success. Mobile photography was a big topic on the photokina 2014 in cologne and we had a chance to interview Fotolia's Head of Mobile, Morgan David de Lossy and Murat Erimel (Marketing and PR Fotolia).
