Had a flurry of 6 German distributor sales drop in today, all of European butterflies and moths. Sadly they were only for very low $$ each, and the 24% I get doesn't add up to much.

Book, print and/or e-book; Bulk discount, flat rate sales.

Here's one of them. Nine-spotted moths (Amata phegea).

Last time I had a licence like this (2014) the fee was over $400. I feel a bit like these passengers. And what's the point of RM if Alamy are going to sell perpetual licences? The last one was 3 years for goodness' sake.

A U.K. editorial use for media, design and publishing.  Mid $$.  Finally getting some money back from what these speed cameras have cost me over time.

After a quiet couple of weeks I was happy to see three sales this morning.......until I read details. Very low $, And distributor sales to boot. So I get a miserly 24% of almost nothing. Giving me a few cents for each licence. All are RM & exclusive. I'm sad to say, that the 3 downloads I also had this morning on one of "those" sites were all for more than I received from Alamy. Which leaves me wondering............should I be moving some images over.

Placards which lobby for women's safety and flowers at the statue of Emmeline Pankhurst in St Peter's Square, Manchester, England, United Kingdom, left after the vigil in the memory of Sarah Everard on 13th March, 2021. A London Metropolitan police officer was charged with Sarah Everard's kidnapping and murder on 12th March. He appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 13th March and was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 16th March. Emmeline Pankhurst was the leader of the suffragette movement in the United Kingdom. The bronze statue was sculpted by Hazel Reeves. Just into $$.

Demo placards with a simple message do sell, though this was an attractive arrangement after the demo.

duplicate   but not sure how to delete

You can't actually completely delete a post but don't worry- you can edit to delete all the content and just type "duplicate". Then we'll know that you 've just done what we've all done a few times.

Distributor sale to German TV. They paid lowish $$ for TV use and low $ for website use. My 24 % is just $.

It was used to illustrate an article about using drones to find sunk e-scooters from River Rhine.

The image was taken in Helsinki and the e-scooter in image is definitely not in Rhine.

That's normal, I had a newspaper sale last month where a picture of some flats in England were used to illustrate the rental market in Australia.

Young boys can never be domesticated. Ask their sisters.

But if you remove their cell phones they revert back to something close as my composting cabbages.

Whilst I seem to be doing best with relatively local - i.e. Australian - themes, not classic tourist images, with a few juicy $$ amongst the penny dreadfuls.  Perhaps the Alamy sale office in Brisbane is earning its keep!  Monthy gross, all up, hovers around $100, really just pin money.
