  1. 16th March 2018 Pilgrimage: The Road to Santiago, BBC2, UK TV Alamy listed among suppliers of archive images.
  2. Slow month? 2018

    Three sales so far (I have never had an end-of-month surge - or even serge! ) Good: 'Educational book. Editorial print + digital use' So-so: 'Commercial electronic, Websites, apps, social media and blogs' Lousy: 'Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts, or reference for artists' Yeah, right. RE: #3 - I'm not hugely worried about the actual low license fees, just so long as they remain balanced with the higher fees and that they are genuine. What does annoy me intensely is the blatant and obvious abuse of licensing T&Cs, using these lower-priced options. Agreeing to license for a low fee is one thing, having people and organisations laugh in your face is quite another.
  3. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    Following specific recent searches for the business estate where the Huawei offices are located, this sold yesterday for Personal Use... ...forgive my cynicism, but I don't think so.
  4. Number of photos shown on "My Alamy Homepage"

    Mmm, if I enter it manually in the address bar, this method will happily display an old, deleted pseudonym of mine!
  5. Account

    Mmm, that's strange. A problem with your browser, perhaps? I still see it.
  6. Keywording and CTR

    CTR is relevant, but only a small part of Alamy's ranking process. Had a look at your relevant images and tags, then did a search for 'washing up', but didn't notice them on the first 10 pages. I only did a visual check, so may have missed them. There are many other images using this search phrase which are in a similar plight to yours. You're doing nothing wrong, I wouldn't worry too much. Doing a search for "clothes line child" you have (at least) three images on page 2 of 22 pages of search results.
  7. Account

    No. Which is to say, yes, we can. Why do you think we can't?
  8. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    A sale today for a decent price (just under $100) means that... ...my average gross sale price this year is now the best since my first year of selling here (2013) Okay, the average is based on a very small number of sales, but I'll take any positives I can. The sale was of a totally unexpected, fairly ordinary image, but ain't that always the way?! Out of interest, the image is fully optimised (a rarity) and has model releases. I have yet to see the license details, so don't know whether the releases had any bearing on sale, but I do have restrictions in place: Don't sell for advertising and promotion Don't sell for consumer goods Don't sell for personal use including single copy, non-retail wall art prints EDIT: forgot to add that a sale yesterday may just well be as a result of a complaint to Alamy regarding blatant misuse of a PU sale a while back. I shall have to wait until I am able to contact CR next week to confirm this, but if so, it's positive news and a good result.
  9. Distributor commission on sales

    You can always be selective as to the markets with which you choose to deal.
  10. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    ^^ Yeah, nice!
  11. Matt, sorry to you and all for posting this here, but since Alamy chose in their wisdom to remove the private communication channels within the forum, I figured that I might be able to get your attention by chasing up your most recent post. You might want to adjust your image title here. I think you may have forgotten to de-select the image while adjusting others? EDIT: ...and while nosing around you port (couldn't help myself!) you might want to take a look at the (ironic) spelling error in your title here.
  12. Quiet out there

    Likewise: CTR (currently) down from 0.90 to 0.43 with no sales. Very early days, though. Blaming it on the weather!
