I took photos of a very expensive home. A subcontractor of the builder wants to use one of the pics on their site, for free, of course. Their contention was that they would provide a link to my site in the photo caption, increasing my SEO. I agreed to let them use a low-res, watermarked pic (a transparent logo at bottom right), and then they wanted to alter it, cropping out the watermark. At that point I declined. If they had offered to license the photograph for use on their site, that would be a different story, but that wasn't the case. Can someone please tell me how linking to my site on their page would increase my SEO? Am I missing something here? If it truly would have value then I might be willing to reconsider.
