  1. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    Hi everyone Just to let you know that we've deleted a few comments as we felt they were off topic. Thanks Alamy

    Hi everyone Looks like this discussion has run its course, let's leave it for now. Many thanks Alamy
  3. Alamy Measures broken?

    Hi everyone We've mentioned to our IT team that some of you have spotted strange behavior from Alamy Measures, they're monitoring it at the moment. To explain the above, a high CTR for one image is unlikely to affect the average. Mark, if you would like us to look into the below issue, please email with more details. We would need to know image ref, which keywords you removed, and which search is returning the image. Thanks Alamy
  4. A request about reporting actual usage

    Hi everyone We would like to remind you that the Forum is a platform for you to discuss stock photography, we don't monitor it 24/7 and if you want our input with things like this you can always email us. As we have previously explained, information needed for DACS claims are not readily available for us. Every year we have to hire a team of temporary staff to source this and the whole operation is costing the business both time and money which is why we are not in a position to offer this as a free service. Thanks Alamy
  5. Hi everyone We are not fully staffed on the news feed over the weekends, and they also start a little bit later than normal. Normally this is not an issue, but because of the Olympics, working through the feed took a bit longer than normal this weekend. If any of you are experiencing issues with upload and processing, we would recommend to drop an email to to notify them. Thanks Alamy
  6. Our latest post about the 100k club is now live. If you haven't seen any in this series before, here are the links: 100k club part 1 100k club part 2 100k club part 3 Cheers Alamy
  7. Discoverability

    Hi everyone and welcome to the forum Noddy1244 Asking questions and seeking advice is exactly what this forum is for, even if the questions have been asked before. Please point new members in the right direction by for example including a link to a similar thread, rather than just pointing out that this is a well discussed topic. If you still have unanswered questions about the Discoverability bar, get in touch with our Contributor Relations team ( and they can share some more insight to how it works. Good luck! Alamy
  8. Multiple sign ins still required

    Hi Bryan If you are having technical issues, please email our Contributor Relations Team at Thanks Alamy
  9. Keywording exhaustion

    Hi everyone Just to clarify, in general the order of your tags are not important, but proximity of one tag compared to another used in a multi-word search can have an effect on where it appears in the sort order. As this conversation has gone off topic, we've decided to lock this thread. Thanks Alamy
  10. Alamy Affiliate sale

    In addition to the page linked to above, we had added some extra info to the forum discussion on this back in August: Sales made through the affiliate scheme are an additional revenue stream, widening your opportunity for selling additional licences on Alamy.
  11. Hi everyone As you have noticed we've experienced some technical issues with one of our servers this weekend. The issue should now be fixed, so if you have any further problems with upload, please contact our Contributor Relations Team ( Thanks Alamy
  12. We've responded to your email with a screen grab of the histogram showing very clearly an error in the exposure. The goalposts certainly have not been moved - it would make no sense for us to do this without informing our contributors. We hope the clarification via email proves useful and helps with future submissions. Cheers Alamy
  13. Arterra???

    And on that, we refer you all in this thread to read the further detail we posted on this situation back in September. Thanks Alamy
  14. Amount charged by Alamy for images

    Hi everyone This thread is now locked as the Alamy forum is not the place to discuss competitor pricing (please read our guidelines). We also think the discussion is painting the wrong picture as our average licence price is £50. Images sold through distribution make up 15% of our sales, which make it worth while as an additional revenue for most photographers. Thanks Alamy
  15. Alamy resources

    Hi Dave We don't promote these services anymore, but if you email us at they might be able to find the old list and send it across. Thanks Alamy
  16. MyAlamy Net Revenue changes

    We have now got a fix in place for this! Let us know if you are experiencing any further issues. Thanks Alamy
  17. MyAlamy Net Revenue changes

    Hi Richard We're looking into this and will give you all an update as soon as possible. Thanks Alamy
  18. Seeing this comment (and your subsequent tweets on this) lead us to double check your recent failure. We'd flagged two images (to try and be helpful) in this case and looking at them again, the CA is very obvious even before we look at 100%. This is a simple thing to fix and an easy thing to check for. Your comments on our decision in this thread are rather misleading. It's up to you if you want to post examples for others to look at here but they may help point out the problem areas for you. If you have any questions about the process, please email and the team will be happy to help. Alamy
  19. Alamy Measures broken?

    A fix has been released and Alamy measures should be back to normal. Thanks for your patience! Cheers Alamy
  20. Hello Have you sent our contributors team an email ( They'll be happy to look into this for you. Thanks Alamy
  21. Alamy Measures broken?

    Hi everyone We have raised this issue with our IT team and they are working on a fix. We'll keep you posted! Thanks Alamy
  22. Please post further details here or email and we'll be happy to check anything out if there appears to be any issue. Cheers Alamy
  23. Hi Peter, Sorry, that camera is fine for Alamy. We're looking into what happened here to cause that error, but we'll put the submission back in QC and will re-check it. Sorry again for the confusion. Cheers Alamy
