Buyers rarely buy an image outright, and even the extended licenses are pretty rare for a small portfolio. To print a bunch of postcards or calendars you only need the P-EL license for up to 10,000 copies. You can get that for 50 credits, or about $50. If the image is for sale at $350 you would need to plan on printing more than 50-70,000 copies to make it worth it. So yes, it is a bit of a fantasy :) Especially with only 8 photos on-line!
I'm puzzled why if buyers purchase an image outright, say for a card or postcard or calendar,[ at $350 say ] that money doesn't roll in much quicker than a few cents for each download. Am I fantasizing ? David.
