  1. Relationship between zooms and sales

    Since 1/7/2017 until now I have had 50 zooms and 20 sale but only one of my sales has originated (although I cannot be sure of this as it could be a coincidence) from a zoom. Does this mean that zooms are actually irrelevant? Does it also mean that Alamy is short changing us by including CTR as one of the criteria for ranking? Kevin

  3. Images Sold in January (max one per day)

    2nd sale of the month but again for smallish money Kevin
  4. I only have data from 2013 onwards Year Added Total images 2013 87 439 2014 73 513 2015 191 704 2016 511 1318 2017 2851 4303 I have basically added 240 images a month over the last 18 months, so I do have a conclusion which is, that during the latter half of 2016 and the whole of 2017, I have made significant efforts to add images with the aim of generating more sales. I intend to continue to do this throughout 2018 at least in order to see if I can actually make some money at this game. I am not expecting a fortune but just some supplementary income. I will add that I do not expect to match 2851 additions this year but who knows! I dont know if my strategy is working but I can say that in 2017 I had more sales (27) than all the other years put together despite the fact that I only had 2 sales between Jan and May. Now back to processing and keywording!

  11. Selling prints

    Ive tried Fineartamerica without any succes although I have not paid a subscription so have a limited number of images on there. I am now trying Photo4me for which no subscription is required, No sales as yet. The only place where I have had some success is Zazzle where I have sold a lot of postcards and some posters and calendars. Kevin
  12. Slow month?

    Only 1 sale for me this month for not very much. Just a tad depressing especially as I have just reached the 4000 images mark. Kevin
  13. Thanks for the info Kevin
  14. Where exactly is this in Chinatown? I know the area very well but do not recognise this street at all. It looks like there may have been some special event. Wonderful photo btw! Kevin
