Thanks for the information Glenn. I was seriously considering putting a few of my very best to sell in stock but I wasn't sure about it. My biggest fear is, once people get the downloads, can't they just re-sell the downloads as their own images, even though it's a copyright breach? I have a few images which I think could certainly sell, but the fact that others can steal my images and sell them is off-putting. Am I just being paranoid or is this a valid concern that one has to live with?

I suppose that's a valid concern.  When a buyer purchases the image from an agency, they specify the usage.  I'm guessing that the agency isn't thrilled either if the buyer uses the image beyond what they paid for--and there must be some sort of controls in place.
