  1. In the green

    Over 60%. Maybe this is what we should be looking for: - Do the "in the green" images proportionally generate more zooms? - Do they proportionally generate more sales? So, if you have 60% greens, and 70% of your sales are from green images, that would be an indication that they are more efficient in terms of generating income. My portfolio is fairly small, and I know zooms are not directly related to sales. So far my "in the green images" have proportionally generated more zooms, but odd enough, proportionally less sales. These are early results, so someone with a larger portfolio might have more reliable numbers.

  3. personal websites

    I've been considering Photoshelter and Photodeck for my site. Based on what has been said here, it appears that Photoshelter is going in the wrong direction. I'd be interested in knowing what others have to say about this and if anybody has any experience (negative or positive) with Photodeck.

  5. New dedicated language sites

    You can configure your keyboard for "English-International Keyboard". That way, you only have to type: ' + c = ç ' + e = é ` + e = è ' + a = á ~ + a = ã ^ + e = ê and so on...
  6. New dedicated language sites

    If the user is accessing the Spanish site, it is reasonable to assume he/she is a Spanish speaker, so the use of the comma is correct. A comma replaces the decimal point in Spanish, and in many other languages, including Portuguese, my mother tongue.

  15. Alamy Measures - inconsistent?

    My zooms have also declined considerably, but none of my sales are for images that have been zoomed. I'm just worried about my CTR...
