Questionable Email?

This morning someone sent me a personal email as follows.(Hi, This is a beautiful picture of a pelican. I love it! I would like to use this pelican picture on my letterhead. What is the process to get approval and is there a fee for permission? Is this photo copyrighted? Thanks!) The pelican that she is refering to is a painting. What do you guys think of this? Does it sound like she is being honest or fishing to see if she could use it without payment?

It appears she is asking the right questions rather than just going ahead and snagging it. Set you terms / price / conditions and see what happens.

typically everyone wants it for free, but she's being cautious. i would set it up as a contract, because you don't know if this is her personal letterhead, or the letterhead of a huge company.

Cost comes down to usage. Find out what she is using it for then you can quote a price for the licensing.
