Does anyone know of any Stock Photography Agencies that will allow you to post your work on multiple sites?

most stock agencies will let you post the same picture on various sites. You can only put it on one site if you put down that it is an exclusive image for that particular agency. Usually if you do exclusive you get paid more for that one image from them. But sometimes posting it on multiple sites will give you more exposure and more downloads.

I think you are referring to microstock rather then the regular stock agencies.

Forgive my ignorance but what is the difference between the two, Andrew?

Stock agencies are the traditional ones. Such as Getty Images, they generally require lots of pictures from regular photo shoots. Which can involve going out on locations with lightning and all that and sometimes models. Can be hundreds of dollars to purchase one image for use.

Microstock agencies came about more recently where just about anyone can just upload for sale, these typically run to a few dollars or so per image purchased for use.

These aren't mutually exclusive, Getty Images for example bought out one of the microstock agencies at one point.

No problem. That's why one asks to learn things.
