Last week I changed a photo, four years on DT, with 0 downloads to the Free Images. I wondered how fast and how much it was downloaded now.
Do you have that too?
Here you find two of the photo's changed to free images.
I've been always wondering why people are so amazed when they see their never-selling RF images are getting download after download in the Free section. Even I sometimes download free images just because they look nice on my desktop. People are thinking that when an image gets 10 downloads in the Free section, those were 10 missed RF sales, but that's not always the case.
Yes, I donated an image few monthes ago. It has never been downloaded for more then one year. As soon as it became free it has been downloaded more then 10 times in a week. But after one month not more then 1/2 times a moth.
I always give my images for free after they turn one year and have no sales! In my opinion, if they don`t sale in one year, no one will buy it :P And it`s ok to make some people happy, I mean those that can`t afford pictures so they take these ones for free :)
Yes, I had photos online that had maybe one view. Then when I made them free, they are downloaded rapidly. Well, go figure! Ihope that once they get the free ones they come and purchase something from me. :)
