Third sale this month, and a third PU.  I have my doubts about this one!

That will sit nicely above someones fireplace!


I restricted all mine for PU... then had them unrestricted again as the value is nearly always higher than my average distro or newspaper sale, and there is always the chance to make more in the future from an infringement.

I've restricted some of my more artistic images that I may try to sell elsewhere, like POD sites.    But not this one!   I agree with you, I've also had much lower sales amounts through other categories, such as bulk discounts.

Fire engines in front of Kallio firestation in Helsinki, Finland.

 

Gross $ 5.25, net $ 1.58. Finland, Editorial website. Royalty-free.

 

One of those snap shots I hesitated to upload. Therefore under pseudonym. $ 1.58 meets the artistic values of the image.

 

fire-engines-in-front-of-kallio-firestat

 

Exactly two months from the last sale.

 

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!)☺️

Well, when it comes to those corona curves, negative is a positive thing.  But I do get your point...

This was so good to see come into my sales this morning! $$$ for a book use direct exclusive sale! I will need everything I can get.  Yesterday, I got a letter from my state's Dept of Labor saying I did not qualify for unemployment assistance!!  They put the word out that the self employed can apply and get payments....but the "red tape" snagged me somehow.

After a long time with no sales and zooms I had this sale yesterday.  Unfortunately, after the distributor's and Alamy's commission I basically sold it for nothing.

Editorial website, low $. Delighted to wake up to 2 sales earlier this week, but the be$t one turned out to be balanced out by the refund of the original sale in January. So had to make do with this one. Better than nowt.

Education - Australia - $$

I hope the buyer realises that this heritage-listed hotel burnt down to the ground in 2018. A complete heartache.

The drama in Australia is that there are plenty of these old pubs standing empty. The cost of bringing them up to speed with modern health and safety regulations is prohibitive. Especially regarding the electrics, while the buildings are made of wood. So they stand neglected and empty in all their splendour. A tragedy.
