Latest Sales from Fine Art America

I’m always pleased to see sales on Fine Art America. Not just because of the profit that comes with each sale, but more importantly to my ego, the feeling that someone appreciates what I do and is willing to pay good money to hang my art on their wall. So I was very happy to see two large sales in the past weeks. The first was one that has sold in the past (and one I have on my wall...

Fun with digital painting with Jixipix Impresso Pro

Fun with Painting (and special offer…)

Last week I wrote about the efforts I had made to create an art-worthy image of a narrow Athens passageway. Something about that image had “tickled my fancy” and so I put a lot of effort into trying to get rid of all the modern detritus that was spoiling my vision of what it should look like. Then, my good friend Alex showed me some of the work he liked and particularly this one he had taken in a typical...

Society6 keeps on rolling

Another month with more sales on Society6! This time, a collection of different products rather than just some wall art (although it is nice to see those sales!). The first sale was actually just that – an art print of the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC: This one made a profit of $22. Quite a lot less than at FineArtAmerica, but you need to price to match the competition at the place the buyer is searching. I did publish my...

Fine Art America sales

Fine Art America back in the running

Late last year I did a lot of research into the pricing that some of the competition used on Fine Art America. That research seemed to suggest that I had been underpricing my work and so I changed all the prices and marked them up, especially for the larger print sizes. The theory was that those large prints were already expensive and so a few more dollars wouldn’t impact the buying decision. Well, that move was followed by what seemed...

Best selling assets in March

Following on from my previous post about total earnings from stock photography in March, this is the next layer of detail of what worked, and what didn’t. I’ll talk about video first – as I mentioned, this was a great month for video with total sales over $500. In fact, it was actually better than that! Due to the way iStock reports earnings, I always include the money I get from them in the month as the earnings for that...

New Pixels website to show off images for print at Fine Art America

Fine Art America gets an update

I noticed an email from Fine Art America announcing that our unique portfolio pages have been given an updated look. Sure enough, when I checked it out, you can update your site to the new design and customize many pieces of it. I’ve never really publicized this site, but I like the new look of it and I’ll see if I can spread the URL around! If you have a Fine Art America account, I think it is worth investigating...

Digital painting of San Diego skyline recently sold on Society6

Working with Society6

I checked my account at Society6 this morning and found another sale. This time a woodblock print of a digital watercolor image of the San Diego skyline. Net profit – $18. Not the high margins that I have set on Fine Art America, but when I think about it, I haven’t sold a print there since January! That reminded me that a number of you have asked if I will write more about my approach to uploading to this site,...

New print sale on Fine Art America

I always like to see my images chosen to decorate someone’s wall and so I put what I think are my best artistic shots on Fine Art America and Photo4Me (for UK images mainly). This past month gave me just one sale of an image that has proved to be very popular: If you recall, I increased my pricing on FineArtAmerica a month or two back and this is the first sale under the new pricing scheme. Still too early...

Quarter by quarter earnings from stock photography and selling images online

Stock Photo Review of 2018

2018 is behind us and thank goodness December has gone! This was one of the worst months for sales for a couple of years and I ended up with $850 less than in December 2017. Total earnings for December 2018 turned out to be $2350. A bit disappointing after all the effort in getting new images and videos online. Still, it is what it is and I need to look forward now to a great January! As this is also...

New pricing on Fine Art America for prints in 2019

Fine Art America print pricing for 2019

Way back in 2015 I did some research on the pricing of images that had sold on Fine Art America. I’ve stuck with that pricing ever since and I have had sales as I report here, but am I leaving money on the table? So I decided to repeat my research and see how pricing of a representative sample of images that had sold this week on FineArtAmerica had changed. What I found was intriguing!
