  1. AI review

    Hello all, What do you think. Will there be on Alamy in near future a fully automatic approval process? Since Alamy looks in general only at the technical aspects i sounds realistic to have a system that automatically selects a sample of images and scan them on noise, sharpness etc. Something like that would mean an almost direct review process. What do you think?
  2. These are my impressions about the new cloud based version of Lightroom. I would like to know other user's opinions about it
  3. Portfolio critics

    Hello everyone. I'm new at Alamy. Could you take look at my portfolio and give some valuable critics. Thank you. http://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?&xstx=0&userid={CA48BF86-825B-409E-8E90-AE3D82059810}&name=Halit+Ölmez&st=12
  4. How was 2016 for you?

    We have nearly completed another year of Alamy sales and it is time to reflect, review and learn lessons. This chart I am very happy with : This chart I am not so happy with : Sales increasing nicely year on year, efforts being rewarded, careful keywording resulting in customers finding my images. But all that work, all the hours invested, to end up with a declining revenue stream feels like pedaling backwards on my bike or kayaking up a waterfall. Too many photographers I guess, too many images for customers to choose from, too easy to just use Google Images and grab any image you see without even thinking of consequences, it all drives the price per image in one direction only. But high value sales do still turn up once in a while. I had one $650 sale this year, two sales of £225 and 5 others over $100. When they happen, I am reminded that Alamy is still the right place to be. I had a look at distribution of prices across all my sales this year, here are the results : So about 60% of my sales are in the $20-80 gross price band. I also had a look at the price trend over the last 5 years. As expected, this shows a declining average price, but a RECOVERY in the gross price THIS YEAR. Unfortunately, in my case, the net price has continued its decline this year, probably due to the proportion of distributor sales increasing. See chart below : So since 2012, my average net price has declined by more than 50%, ouch ...... what happened to inflation?? Aren't our prices meant to go up with inflation? Every other business seems to manage it, but not us ;-) I hope this is enlightening, or at least informative, for forum members. If you feel so inclined, please share your own data, but I understand many people won't want to. Who knows what 2017 will bring, the new search algorithm and contributor tools have made all that even harder to predict. I was at the top of page 2 on BHZ, then dropped to page 13, now on page 9. It is too early to say whether views/zooms are adversely affected ... Happy New Year! Marc
  5. Newbie question: on the first submission, if you get a rejection message for one image, does this mean that the other three are OK, or could it mean that this was the first one they looked at and they stopped looking as soon as the first one failed?
  6. Review of pictures

    Hello My name is Thomas and this is my first time on this forum. I have uploaded my first files but I can´t really see that it went ok. It´s been some days now and I just wonder if I have to do it again. I read that review time was within 24h. Regards Thomas
  7. Portfolio review ?

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but I'd love to have some thoughts/critics on my personal portfolio that I'm finishing to set up. I spent the last few weeks, even months on this and I'd need some external opinions from photographers on the content/feel/layout of the whole thing. Here it is: http://ajourney.slightlyoutoffocus.com Hope it's fine with the forum rules, and if not you can just close down the topic (sorry!) Thanks for any help. Cheers! Mathieu
  8. Hi, I've learnt a great deal searching through the forums, and I've created a lot of pseudonyms recently to get a better idea of which of my types of photos are working. I'm in the process of adding more (another of the teachings from the experienced, this is a numbers game to a certain extent!) However, I'd really appreciate anyone who could take a look at my portfolio and give any views on the keywords, standard, the good, the bad and the ugly. Thanks in advance, Fred * Disclaimer: I may not be able to actually supply you with immortality if you review my portfolio. But the intention is there!
