Tag Archive: sold on EyeEm


I have no idea what is going on with EyeEm but February 2021 has been my best month ever selling 9 photos with one big sale of over $30 for one photo license!

I am thankful and over the moon, more of this please 💐💐💐

EyeEm Earnings February 2021

EyeEm Earnings February 2021

Ok, this NEVER happened before. Karma seems to like me… a few hours after posting My EyeEm Sales in January 2021, I had two more sales of the same photo!

It only earned me a total of 0.52$ but hey, better than nothing. It definitely was a nice surprise and I am eagerly awaiting Copytrack to find the website that bought and uses it 🙂

So, January 2021 was probably one of my best months I have ever had on EyeEm. Why is that?

I do have my own little theory – that is ONLY a THEORY! Maybe, just maybe many EyeEm users did delete their photos and/Uor accounts (die to the reduced earnings starting February 2021) and therefore we face less competition now. What do you think, would this make sense?

Early post about January earnings because there will probably not be any more earning news coming in the next two days.

EyeEm will change their earning structure in February and we will probably earn less. The three sales I had in January are also quite… “funny”.

“Web License” is a sale directly on EyeEm as far as I know. The amount is ok for a floral photo.

The Partner License from Getty Images is a joke. My husband already said he does not understand why I want our photos to be sold on Getty. And to be honest, I don’t know anymore either…

Ha, you might remember this happy post from earlier this month:

My EyeEm Sales in November 2020

and guess what?  Copytrack has found the sold vintage Sauerland photo on BBC Serbia!

We do feel honored! My husband thought I was crazy for uploading those old photos from the 1950s to EyeEm / Getty Images. MUHAHAHAAAAAA 😜😜😜

My husband did translate parts of the article with Google and it seems to be about the burning of witches in the last centuries including famous witch trials in Oberkirchen in the German Sauerland region – where this photo was taken. Very interesting read!

Hurray, I have sold one photo on Getty Images through EyeEm. I did earn less than 10 cents but hey, better than nothing. It’s an old photograph from the 1950s and something I never thought I would ever sell.
