Pricing for Personal Use Downloads



  • Alex Vita

    Hi Kevin,

    I would make them about 20-30% of your Royalty Free license prices.

    A photographer I know had problems with "Personal Use" licenses, here's what he said:

    "Some people were taking advantage of my “friends and family” personal-use rate and downloading my photos for commercial gain. Some were artists who would use the photos to reproduce the images in different mediums and then sell the original, or make multiple prints. Others claimed ownership of the images to support their website and make ads for photo workshops and seminars."


    So I also recommend you track your "personal use" sales and see how those images are being used and whether it affects your other sales.
