  1. Goodness, all those 'on a shoestring' guides on my bookshelf are starting to take on an historical air! Presumably, Rough Guides (and all the others: Fodors, et al) are in the same boat? Getting me nostalgic now: my first licence was to Rough Guides (India '91). I remember sending them in a sheet of my best slides and fretting for months while they held on to them in case they got lost!
  2. This isn't a place to upload 'artistic' images, JaniMarkus. They rarely sell. However, 'bog-standard' editorial shots such as this most certainly do! I doubt that $1.58 comes anywhere near meeting the commercial value of the image to the buyer. And I'm sure that, unless you were selling dozens of such value images per day, then this won't be buying you very much in Finland. As long as low-value sales such as this are balanced with better-value ones, then they can be bearable, but $1.58 every two months?! So stop putting yourself down and upload more of the same! I wish you many more sales (of far better value!)☺️

  4. Thanks. The direct link didn't work, but easy enough to find from the feed. Good to know that they're supporting creatives. At both ends of the industry?
  5. provided it respects the licence agreement Precisely the point.
  6. Just what I was thinking...couldn't be more fishy if you served it with chips.
  7. Thank you, that's helpful and good of you. You have print editions of Aussie Newspapers?! I''m now imagining your cellar (Netflix Fargo) Yes, I'd found the first one - currently in progress via a third party service. The second one is new to me, but as it's an Alamy-watermarked version, and a blog, then if I bother at all, then I'll just issue a DMCA takedown. Thanks again. Apologies again to all for clogging up the thread. Shame that Alamy, in their wisdom, removed the PM service a couple of years back.
  8. Thanks for your help, Wim. They have certain articles available to view free, but there are large parts of News Corp Australia which are behind a paywall. Yes, the search function works, but then shows restricted articles as well as free ones. The specific articles are in the 'Gold Coast Bulletin' (article date 2018-12-03) : https://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/news/opinion/ann-wason-moore-are-automated-kiosks-making-life-worse/news-story/ec28cfb9e2d256acbc84fdfc2c5e7f40 Which can be linked to from this search: https://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/search-results?q=online%20kiosks (first article in the search - image shown in the link is not mine) and the 'Daily Telegraph' ( article date 2019-04-08) : https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslocal/macarthur/rowan-enright-blamed-angry-outburst-on-frustrating-mcdonalds-selfservice-kiosks/news-story/b3d87eea63df889186a9b14c27f82074&usg=AOvVaw3sYUMZExXx-9ky8j23aTYG Before you ask, I found these usages a long while ago via a Google search, which had thumbnails (and/or larger images) in the search. Google search archives still have results available (e.g. cropped version of the image for the second article here: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/13f56662f8041ef71d567fe05f56fa35%3Fwidth%3D316&imgrefurl=https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslocal/macarthur/rowan-enright-blamed-angry-outburst-on-frustrating-mcdonalds-selfservice-kiosks/news-story/b3d87eea63df889186a9b14c27f82074&h=421&w=316&tbnid=4S8yDm6SlJQoJM&tbnh=259&tbnw=194&usg=K_28WReWY9SoKbKtgg-kPeWdRZ9i4=&docid=EXa-p3909X0k2M). Sorry - forgot. This is the image: KA1NH8.
  9. Not as in 'long walk' πŸ˜‰ I had 4 for 70 gross, the highest value of which was from a customer who I chased to ensure correct recompense for an image previously licensed for PU. 🀨 Zooms, as per last month, so surprisingly good. I was ready for a lower month than February, owing to the usual swings and roundabouts, but everything ground to a halt for me on the 17th. I have a few in the pipeline, advised to and /or queried with CR, so may have a couple of web uses and a newspaper use coming in April, but given the current situation, I'm not expecting any great results. While we're on the subject of newspapers (and do forgive me for hijacking my own thread! πŸ˜‚), but do any Aussie contributors here have access to the pay-walled Gold Coast Bulletin (part of News Corp Australia)? Trying to hunt down a picture that I know is behind that wall! TIA Looking forward to some good results in the thread this month, as I seem to have seen quite a few $$$ sales from some of you.
  10. πŸ˜‚ I figured that might be the case! I beat you on 15 views for seven searches! Mind you, with no zooms, that's given me good reason to go and revisit some long-neglected tags.
