My MLS allows 24 photos. Zillow is unlimited as far as I know and whatever lands in Zillow should automatically land in Trulia. Realtor.com shows the photos that are downloaded from my MLS. Unless you pay extra to them I don't think you can add. I always use at least 24 photos.

Our MLS is not unlimited. Usually I get 30-75 professional photos and change them out with different descriptions. I believe we are allowed 36.  I am unsure about R & Z . We utilize a system in our back-end that allows unlimited photos and a wider online visibility.

I've seen over 70 pictures per property in our MLS. I post between 20 and 40 depending on the features of the house. If there is something extra special I'll post more. Otherwise, more than 40 will just be repetitive.

36, and residential listings use up every slot. Commercial listings, not always as many but we use at least a dozen or more for those too. Many of those images are not actually photographs but maps, annotated aerials and demographic snapshots etc.

36 in our Maine MLS portal for image sockets to fill. Why not do that and more on your own portals? Links to full motion videos of property and area flavor help the buyer differentiate the listings and neighborhoods which saves all of us in the real estate triangle time. The shoe box 5-3-1 ranch can only get so much imagery attention but make it a farm property and chewing up 50 to 70 is easy. Covering the brook water frontage in the back forty, the seven buildings that go with the farmstead that has open and wooded land to showcase to a far away online buyer.

Investor grade real estate gets a street view.

Invisible inventory gets three.

The rest averages 1 photo/100 sf conditioned space.

Some resources allow 25 to 100 photos. Some agents think 75 images of the kitchen is beneficial. What a shame.  Just because you can doesn't mean you should fill every slot.
