    Lightbulb Selling Picture to Publisher

    I was contacted by a textbook publisher, they request to use one of my picture in their Geography textbooks for local students, for 5 years. The first print is about 7000 pcs.

    I believe they just want to use the picture for publishing, and do not want the full copyright.

    The company is an international publisher, I am not sure how much they can pay. But since this is for educational purpose, I do not want to overcharge.

    How much should i charge them? Anyone knows the market rate?

    Anyone here has experience in selling your artwork?

    Thanks for help!

    I was asked by some companies for free photos, they called it "Contribution", which I almost fainted. Since then, they avoided me.

    Ya boy, who pays for our cam????
