Schmap!!! I've Been Published

We'll sort of, about a month ago I got an email asking to use one of my photos in a travel guide for Savannah, GA. It was up front and said flat out I wouldn't get paid but would get full credit for the photo. They use Creative Commons and linking to photos and using them on their travel guide software. The Software is freeware and is a sort of geo-mapping software. They have a ton of different cities worldwide that show you all the sites before you get there and how to find them. It's pretty cool and will use on our next trip.
I was happy just for the recognition. Though I wish that I was being paid but I guess you have to starts somewhere. I mean the software is free, and so is the credit that I'm get maybe that will lead to some real money. Below is a copy of the letter and the photo.
