Is there a correlation to image size and price of your image that people will buy? Can an image of 4 megapixels be sold with the extended licence? Thanks

The license is not affected by the image size. But if you're planning to post minimum size images, you are reducing your commercial exposure, so why do it?

I mean that many people will have particular uses for an image, so they will want more than 4 megapixels. Just to print a normal sized (letter/a4) page they may want 8 megapixels. So they will look at your picture, reject it, and license someone else. You sell less licenses. Warning: do NOT increase resolution if you don't have enough.

 

Can I ask why you would have only a 4 megapixel image? It may be a problem with your photography planning (for example, taking a detail from a picture rather than filling the frame by plan).

If I downsize them I will lose loose grain, the sharpness will be better, but yeah, I guess the size does matter. 😛

Some people are actively searching for higher resolution images. You will miss out those potential sales.

I have the feeling that this thread belongs to the contributor forum. I will move it there.

A modern iPhone and iPad have 12 megapixel cameras.

Most DSLR cameras have at least 20 magapixel cameras.

Perhaps you just need a better camera.

40-60 megapixels for the best. And the times of the DSLR cameras are counted. Mirrorless cameras are taking over. That means that you can buy cheap second hand DSLR cameras with a great quality.
