New record for SR-EL license - $5,100

The previous record of $4,500 for a SR-EL license was exceeded today with a $5,100 sale. The file was acquired with exclusive SR-EL rights by a chocolate producer.

The image listed on the left is for illustration purposes only. The acquired file was very similar, but it is not this file. We cannot post the original here, but I thought this info would be useful to contributors and to everyone analyzing our industry.

And just as a side note, being exclusive matters. Royalties awarded to the non exclusive photographer would be $2,550. The exclusive additional royalties for such sale add $510 more, which is not bad at all.

The post wasn't clear to me ... was this a record for DT or for the industry? Was this a DT sale, or was it from somewhere else? Congratulations to all involved.

Not sure why my previous post showed up twice, but then I might as wekk use this one to edit it with the words that 'no, I did not notice the date. The post was on top of all blog posts, so I just replied to it, assuming it was recently posted'.

I'd probably die instantly due to extreme hyperventilation, nevermind the extra $510 (just kidding, of course!)

Congratulations to the contributor!

Inspiring news! Did the photographer set the price or was the price negotiated between Dreamstime and the client who bought it? Because usually the recommended price is lower. And I bet nobody wants to set prices that are very high?

Thanks Serban, It is surely useful to me as a contributor to know what kind of pictures have SR-EL sales.

Oh lala..Big congrats to the photographer and Dreamstime who made this chance possible. I presume that the photo had no downloads, when bought right? If so, then I don´t have any reason to lament if some of my images don´t get downloaded...

Congrats, and a well done to Dreamstime and the photographer. I also get some sick sense of analysis paralysis in the fact that the subject appears to be a flower.
