Photo used for front cover of Magazine, from stock site (Question)

Hi all,

Just wanted to ask a random question.

A friend of mine mentioned they thought they seen one of my pictures on the front of a Magazine called 'Scottish Field', and after a quick trip to the supermarket, I was shocked to see that was indeed the case.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm overjoyed! I never would of thought one of my random images of our dog would be used on a front cover of a mag.

My question is, this was just downloaded from Shutterstock site and from as far as i can tell, this didn't cost the magazine much, in fact I think I only got $0.25 for the image.

Can this be a normal amount for the front cover of a mag?

I do realise that images I submit onto stock sites can and will be used for various things, but I never expected to see one on the cover of a magazine.

Thanks for reading, and any insights to this would be apreacated.

Chris, Scotland
