  1. RM vs RF usage...again!

    ..again, i'm sorry! I apologise for debating this again and again but i was looking at your ports, people who confirm daily in "slow month" or "post your positive results" or "which is your <month>---something" they're good sellers. For the following categories i've noticed some of you use RM, some RF (maybe Editorial) and i really couldn't find a reason to stay relaxed on that or to say to my mind "now i' see the light!!!" - Food - Landscapes without people or brands - Wildlife / Animals - Not branded objects How could you explain the RM vs RF usage then? Technically and legally speaking, each of the above category pictures could go in the RF market, but.... many uses RM (as i do). Which are your thoughts? Thanks in advance to share these.
  2. Hello, Maybe someone can help with that. For the second time, I have sold a picture at a price under the value displayed on Alamy’s tool “custom pricing” The difference this time is so huge that I really have doubts. I sold a picture with the following licence conditions: Country: World Excluding USA Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - Print and App Print run: up to 5 million Placement: Inside Image Size: 1/4 page Start: 01 January 2014 End: 01 February 2014 One-time, world rights (excluding U.S. English) It’s sold for 300$ But, when I check the same picture with the same licensing condition on the “custom pricing” tool online on Alamy website, the price should be 490 $. The difference is huge and even at a special discount, it looks like there is an issue here. Why my picture is sold at such a discounted price ? Did anyone experienced the same issue with pricing or are the prices online with the custom pricing tool inaccurate ? Another problem I have, is the currency used. I live in Europe and I have sold an image in Germany but the amount appears in $. I have sold an image in the UK and again the amount was in $ at half the price it should have been (in any currency). Customers buy in Pounds or Euro and the amount is changed to $ ? Why ? It seems to complicate the all process plus adding exchange rates discrepancies while the original amounts were in local currencies. Many thanks for your help Hello, Maybe someone can help with that.

From 490 to 300: a huge difference. Is there an issue there ? Did anyone experienced the same issue with pricing or are the prices online and the custom pricing tool inaccurate or just guidelines without any guarantee ? Another question I have, is the currency used. I live in Europe and I have sold an image in Germany but the amount appears in $. I have sold an image in the UK and again the amount was in $ (at half the price it should have been again using the custom pricing tool). Customers buy in Pounds or Euro and the amount is changed to $ ? Why ? It seems to complicate the process plus adding exchange rates discrepancies while the original amounts are already in local currencies. Many thanks for your answers and help, I am a bit at a loss here
