  1. Have you found any Alamy images Feb 2018

    That's great Steve, thanks. Good to have a new ISSN to quote. Pearl
  2. Have you found any Alamy images Feb 2018

    Many thanks for reporting this Steve. It was zoomed a couple of days ago Pearl
  3. Have you found any Alamy images Feb 2018

    Thank you for reporting Adie Pearl
  4. Tags and plurals

    Yes I can see why someone might use that term but it is not logical and that's why I am surprised that Alamy used it as their example as though they are suggesting that is the way to do it. Shouldn't they be discouraging the use of plurals for these types of searches as it means a lot of extra tags and work for us? Perhaps buyers don't realise that we don't have automatic stemming here. Pearl
  5. Tags and plurals

    How many of you add plurals of words like village, landscape, sunset, portrait? I do but feel I shouldn't have to if buyers were sensible in their use of search terms. I mean how many landscapes can you fit into one image? However having just read Alamy's latest blog on how to search, the example of a search term given there is "landscapes"!!! Pearl
  6. January

    40 sales which is very slightly down on January 2017 but about average for me. A higher proportion of distributor sales (25%) than usual Pearl
  7. Have you found any Alamy images Feb 2018

    WOW that's some achievement finding all those for everyone. Thank you so much for all your effort Steve. Pearl
  8. Duplicate Sale - Refund to come?

    No you are not right. Refunds occasionally happen after you've been paid. Pearl
  9. Thank you Grethe. I'll add that to my DACS for next year. I wonder if it has been reported as a sale yet. Pearl
  10. Slow month? 2018

    and image buyers it seems! Pearl
  11. Slow month? 2018

    Sorry but I don't quote my income on a public forum. I shoot a lot of travel because I travel a lot but that's not really what sells best. Pearl
  12. Slow month? 2018

    I too was thinking it's a slow month with only 6 sales so I looked back at January 2017. By this stage of the month I had sold 10 but for the same $$$$ as this month's 6. I then looked at the whole month and I had 43 sales for the most $$$$ of 2017. I am not giving up hope yet. Pearl
  13. Many thanks again Bryan. You do a great job. Pearl
  14. Tags and search results

    I have come to the conclusion the combining tags actually weakens them. Pearl
  15. Many thanks again Bryan. Pearl
