  1. Slow month?

    They are exclusive for now on Alamy but I may have to change that if I decide to sell them outside here too. Sorry, I could have worded it better.
  2. Slow month?

    Absolutely dead. The sales lull continues. Highest priced sale here this year £25.15 Total earnings this year $139. Total at a microstock site this year over $2000. And I am told that the money is better here. Sadly I think I will have to start uploading my exclusive to Alamy editorial images (that also sell on microstock) outside here.
  3. How to submit footage

    That's a shame as I wanted to try video as I have no success selling images here.
  4. How to submit footage

    Ok, very strange.
  5. How to submit footage

    I read that Alamy sells footage but I can find nowwhere where I can submit it.
  6. Slow month?

    A lot of tweaking of many parameters in Lightroom. I tend not to go too heavy on clarity. Just practice (watch some Youtube tutorials) as I am still learning. Having said that I am still getting no sales.
  7. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    It seems whatever I submit/post will be criticised here no matter what, despite uploading editorial for some time so hey ho.
  8. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    In your opinion perhaps.
  9. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    Thanks Kay, I appreciate your suggestions.
  10. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    Good for you. I wish I had your motivation.
  11. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    The search algorithms yes.
  12. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    This is totally unfair because I am being singled out here. Why no criticism of others reporting poor sales ? This is supposed to be a "community"
  13. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    Well there you go, a fine example of the kind of reception to my questioning of sales. Of course I am a "troll" (whatever one is) I have uploaded work here, spent hours editing, keywording with a sole objective to not do well and post my woes. Unbelieveable!!
  14. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    I agree with you, it's totally depressing. My concerns of lack of sales have been met with some folk here (who are doing well) in denial that it could be anything other than Alamy's fault that my sales are non existent, and low ones when they do come. I came here because I believed the hype but so far very underwhelmed. This "busy" period starting September is abysmal. I will be very happy to report if and when sales do come, be sure of that. Wishing you sales Michael as your images are excellent and they deserve to do well.
  15. Low fees now the norm?

    I understand where you are coming from and if I had known about Alamy before I started with microstock 11 years ago I would have backed them and not gone the microstock way if it paid. However, I have to disagree that the images are of lower standard at microstock (perhaps now they are less choosy) as I see a lot of poor images here as well as excellent. I have had rejections at microstock but never had any here so far.
