Posted on 10/26/2007 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Most microstock images license for $2.00, but Dreamstime has just reported licensing a single image of a rose for commercial use by a chocolate producer for $5,100.  Elena Elisseeva of Toronto, Canada, will receive $2,550 because she is nonexclusive with Dreamstime. If she had been exclusive, she would have received an additional $510. Elisseeva has 4767 images on Dreamstime and a total of 14,644 sales. The previous highest sale by Dreamstime for an exclusive license was $4,500.
