Go on then, you can have it…

My mate just asked if I had any pictures of the cats with ‘green eye’ (like red-eye, but for cats) for a book on photoshop he’s writing (not these, but one like them he does loads) and I sent him a couple. Of course you wouldn’t charge a mate, but quite a few of my pics from flickr have been purloined (with permission) for magazines (and no doubt a fair few I don’t know about) and I haven’t asked for more than a credit there either.

Then I think of all the free writing I do as well, snippets for The Birmingham Post and some charity magazine this month alone.

So I suppose the question is, do you have to start charging or do you have to say no?
