  1. Its not my first, by a long way, and I am use to the ups and downs of stock, but what concerned me is an RM sale for " in perpetuity " Glad someone found it funny, ........strange world
  2. Had this so called sale in today : Rights Managed Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Editorial website Industry sector: Travel & tourism Image Size: Any size Start: 10 August 2021 End: 10 August 2026 Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity How can an Rights Managed image be sold for in perpetuity ? and at such a low price of $3.35 ? Things had got silly, but this is just ............ $ 3.35
  3. No not just you, iMac 10.13.3 using Firefox, it was working this morning
  4. I have to agree, Bill, the chances are it could have been apart of a bulk deal, which then makes the individual price very low, - only an idea. Also agree with Chuck, but its is a shame that Alamy still come up with their own very strange low price deals as well, - with my pet hate being Personal Use, why oh why is it set so low. If we take pride in our work, then it should follow into the pricing.
  5. I can see my inbox has this months sales report, but it is showing as from a private email address at gmail, has anyone else had this, and is it safe to open, I have sent an email to contributor services but awaiting reply.
  6. "The idea of offering a personal use licence means that the image is available for a print and its important to customers that they have the highest resolution possible. We need to be able to provide a file that could be printed for personal use at a large enough size - this doesn't mean that the customer always downloads the highest size. This is why we do not limit the file size that can be downloaded." When will they relies that we make a lot more than $ 9.99 profit when selling prints, canvas prints and otherwise, when selling direct with no problem.
  7. I have bitten the bullet, and placed the required restriction on all my images. MS just don't want to know or want to understand the problem that these low prices cause, along with sending out the hires image file.
  8. I have finally been all the way through my images and placed No Personal use restrictions on them all. 
 Guess what crept under the wire in yesterday's sales ? Yep, a Personal Use, Grrr
  9. I have asked the question straight to member services, and am disappointed in their replies, I dont think anyone is listening, yet alone understands our problem with such a low price. Hi I might be slightly late to the party regarding personal use, as I have been away shooting stock. I would be very grateful if someone who understands the world of professional photography is able to explain to me, what unearth is going on, when you now have a system that allows anyone to pay £10 and have excess to the full size hires image file. This is most unhelpful to those of us who sell prints, canvas
  10. I agree with what Bill has said and tread very carefully. Funkyworm also made good points, - you might only need a couple of children to make the picture work.
  11. Yes to the first question, just be aware as to how they might be published, you need to have an open mind set. In answer to model release form, I have it saved as a jpg, and place a suitable small image in place, print, sign, and scan back in, upload.
  12. Many thanks for finding and posting, I can find 7 images of mine, and I would like to know more info, I will be emailing MS Chris
  13. Slowly getting back on track after several poor months, but a long way off a couple of years ago. I am concerned with prices, they are still going lower, - as they are everywhere.
  14. A good question, one can say yes and no. Its all changing a lot these days, and not for the better, when we started with Alamy, we had a good chance of making sales with good strong images for sensible prices, these days with the "pond" getting so huge with an unedited 38 million images. Alamy are now putting the onus on to the photographer to be more responsible for the marketing of their own images with more keyword requirements and various other keyword refinements. Correct me otherwise, but in my world my "Agent or Library' should be doing this as part of their 50% oh uhm 60% We photograp
