Getting up at silly o'clock in extreme weathers for live news is now worth $13 gross for web news outlets. Print is its only salvation.

I had two of those yesterday and I didn't find it funny.

21 of them for me - including three images used twice within the month so double the return on those.  I get a lot of repeat sellers from this buyer and the sums eventually add up to far more than I get from the more usual 5 year licences for unlimited usage within a magazine.  Swings and roundabouts.

I suppose that your sale could be to TI Media mentioned in another thread. I had four sales of the same image to them this month. All of them have stuck.

These "jokes" aren't laughing matters anymore. Had one of my Alamy pictures published in The Guardian last year, all properly credited, so I thought I'd wait and see what came through as payment. 

 

Country: Worldwide

One use in a single editorial article used within web versions of titles from the same group. Digital usage includes archive rights for the lifetime of the article. Country: United Kingdom

 

The licence fee: $5.01 

 

That's $1 a year for a 5 year licence. It's truly a buyer's market, these days.

 

Coincidentally it was a landscape framing of same photograph as my first Alamy sale back in 2003, when also for editorial use, print only in a magazine, it paid $446.92

 

Like I said; not a laughing matter, anymore...

   Only one sale so far this year and I ended up with the princely sum of $1 !!!  Hardly worth the work - why bother???

No one forces you.  It is your choice.  It is the “dead hand” of the market.

Exactly my point.
