  1. LOW AS WE CAN GO?

    Thanks everyone for your replies - although it is rather distressing to find out it is so widespread. I contribute to one other agency and will just have to concentrate on uploading to them whilst I see how things pan out here.
  2. LOW AS WE CAN GO?

    Is this as low as we can go - I have had some cheap sales but these take the biscuit - I have had 3 sales today all with the following details: Country: United KingdomUsage: EditorialMedia: Magazine - print, digital and electronicPrint run: up to 500,000Placement: InsideImage Size: 1 pageStart: 01 December 2018End: 01 December 2023Duration: 3 months. Any placement: Inside or cover. Full page - not sure where - it says placement: inside then lower down it says 3 months inside or cover. Magazine for five years, full page, so are these newspaper sales? I did think only personal use could have such a low price (all 3 for same price just over $6 each gross).
  3. Common flower?

    Looks like a pot marigold to me.
  4. Big editorial sales?

    Mine was 22nd February last year $240 for a picture of a puffin - those were the days. Practically paid for my trip to the Farne Islands. Country: Worldwide Usage: iQ sale: Single company - multiple use editorial only Industry sector: Education Start: 22 February 2016 Duration: Unlimited

  7. Personal use - then refunded

    I have occasionally had a sale refunded and then replaced by the same image selling under a slightly different licence or price. The only ones which have been refunded and not resold have been personal use and all images of drugs. On April 1st a photo of Lansoprazole was sold for personal use and refunded on April 28th. On 1st July I sold three pics of Tramadol for personal use and all were refunded on the 5th. These are the only personal use pics I have ever sold! I don't believe for a minute that these pics were for personal use.
  8. The State of Things?

    I passed last years total sales in numbers a couple of months ago, which I should be really pleased about. However, average price per sale has dropped from £71.34 in 2015 to £34.60 this year - under half! Mainly due to 4 three figure sales in 2015 and only one so far this year. Fingers crossed!
  9. How was your February 2016?

    BME for me with 6 sales for £387.20 gross, largest $240 smallest $5.32 RF distributor sale. Zooms well up in past few months but many sales have never been zoomed.
  10. Post your positive results here :)

    I too have had a $240 gross sale for worldwide iQ educational use this month - zooms and sales up dramatically in the past few months.

  15. Web Crawler Sites

    Hi, I sold one of my images at the end of June to a newspaper, who used it on lots of different web pages. It has also appeared on a site which has no right to use it (presumably they have obtained it from the newspaper web site as it has no watermark). I was going to send them an email re deleting my image from their site, but when I read further they say they do not "host or upload any pictures or images other than indexing them". They are therefore "not responsible for the accuracy, compliance, copyright, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content from the scraped sites". I am not very technical. Does this mean that they are saying my image is not on their site, they are just providing a portal so the image can be seen on the original site and therefore I can do nothing about it? They are also inviting people to download and share with others on twitter, facebook, and other forms of social media. It is only a small file but it still makes me mad - has anyone else had this problem?
