Steve Valentia Posted March 31, 2022 Share Posted March 31, 2022 (edited) When I started contributing to Alamy in 2004, I was advised (by a member of the contributor support team) to include some royalty free images in my collection. I probably now have about 15% RF images in my total collection and I've only sold RM images for the last 10 years or more. Some of my early RF sales were my most profitable of all (ever) with fees averaging in the mid to high $$$ range. Today, I sold a Royalty Free image (taken over 15 years ago) for a fee in the very low $ range. In fact, it could not have got much lower, without me paying the client money for it! So, what has happened to RF prices, and why are clients being allowed to buy images that they can use anywhere and forever, for less than the price of a coffee? Your thoughts are welcome.
