  1. My second sale for the month which puts me ahead of last year's total for the month! Ha! This image was zoomed a few months back. Editorial Website use: U.S. Region standard $$ which makes me happy. Rick
  2. Got a presentation sale this morning, worldwide, region is U.S., for the standard $$ rate. This was zoomed and licensed in the same day. A first for me. 🙂 Rick
  3. Thanks Cecile. I had to really react FAST. That "Pirate Ship" appeared quickly and was very fast. I got one shot that worked. This was the first one. That ship moved so quickly none of the other shots I took worked out. To top it off this shot was not set up for this pose originally. I had to get them arranged and run behind them (shooting with a 105mm f2.8 lens) and lay in the sand! :-) I'm glad it licensed. The client didn't buy a print of it. LOL Rick
  4. RM $$ Country: Worldwide ; Usage: iQ sale: Single company, editorial magazine, print and or web, multiple use 5 years ; Industry Sector: Media, design & publishing ; Start: 18-February-2019 ; End: 18-February-2024 Region: UK First one this month. This was zoomed about two months ago. Clearwater Beach, Florida. I took this during a family beach photo session. Rick
  5. Wow, you guys / gals, mostly are doing well. I feel a little sheepish reporting my best January ever with only 2 images licensed, but feel great that the gross $$$ was over $300.
  6. Bus boycott historical marker in Montgomery Alabama. No information about use given, only that it sold in the US. Excellent $$$ for RF Editorial. Rick
  7. This came in last night. It's the second sale in less than 12 months for this image. Grayton Beach, Florida shops. Editorial Travel guides -print and/or e-book, Unlimited Print run, Inside, Worldwide, Online PDF Rights Included; Duration: 7 years Royalty Free Editorial Only - Part of my experiment RF vs RM - Rick
  8. My 2018 was excellent for my meager portfolio. 2018 Sales = 23 2017 Sales = 3 The number of sales definitely has something to due with the fact I uploaded over 700 new images in 2018. Rick
  9. My biggest year for submissions at 720. I fell short of my goal but I was not able to travel as much as I wanted. I did have a banner year in sales, at 23! My average sale price was right in line with what Alamy says is the company average. I only have 1402 images posted so I'm far from disappointed. I'm hoping to top both numbers in 2019. Rick
  10. FWIW, in the U.S., it is a separate copyright violation to strip the EXIF / METADATA from an image unless you are the copyright holder. Not that it stops any theft. It seems stealing images is becoming the norm. Another person I know left Flickr just for that reason. Rick BTW, I think I read somewhere that Block Chain was coming to photography very soon. Can't remember the details but I believe it did have something to do with combating image theft etc...
  11. Can't stress "max out the RAM" enough. You will not regret it. The problem with the new MacBooks, for me anyway, is that you can't add RAM to it yourself. You order the model you want with the amount of RAM you want. My older MacBook 15" lasted 7 years and I was able to double the RAM myself, which is much cheaper. On my new iMac I have 40MB of RAM. It makes a difference as it seems every new version of software eats more and more RAM. Rick
  12. Second sale yesterday. Four for the month which is the best I've ever done for a December. Mid $$, so not too bad. Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial, Editorial - websites, apps, social media and blogs (excludes advertising). Worldwide for 5 years. Media: Editorial website Image Size: Any size Start: 19 December 2018 End: 19 December 2023 Rick
  13. I sold two images today. Here is the first one. Another PU but at full price. Taken in Destin Florida from Harry T's restaurant. Rick
  14. Another PU but this time paid the published price. Second sale of this image this year. Site of an old cotton gin & mill on the Autauga Creek in Prattville Alabama. Rick
