  1. Been on the site selling for around three years and slowly updating my images and got a little frustrated with not really getting much interest and not one sale and then all of a sudden 3 sales in a month. Now this is nothing to retire on or is it something to shout about but I'm totally surprised how this has happened. I really do need to take and upload a lot more images to give me a fighting chance of increasing sales but after this little spike in interest I think it has motivated me to jump back on board with taking and uploading. Is this common that you don't get any interest for a long time then all of a sudden sales?
  2. Thanks for the reply, I'm referring to specifically a Dog (Our dog) the only reason I posted the question is because I thought I'd refresh on the FAQ pages with rights and licenses etc. I have taken a number of pics of him but as mentioned I have selected No in the release sections of Attributes. I think I need to change that now then??
  3. Hi I have a number of images of my partners Dog up for sale I have selected 'NO' to the section that asks whether I have a property release for commercial use because I thought because its a dog it didn't need it. So with that in mind what should I have the images as seeing though it is technically our dog? Am I jeopardising sales by selecting NO where as I should be selecting YES. Does this make sense? Thanks
  4. Singularone thats partly why I asked the original question because some people say on a beach are that far away you can't see them
  5. I have a few 'beach' images that have people in them but the people are that small they are unrecognisable. When filling in the Attributes 'How many people are in the image' is it OK to put say more than 4 but then select 'No' for 'Do I have a model release'?
  6. So Spacecadet or any others if you took a crowd shot 'in public' you don't need a licence? It's only when a scene is being staged i.e a model booked to do a office scene or something similar?
  7. Thanks for the link to the video explaining things ver very useful. One thing though with the model and property release situation. In this post http://discussion.alamy.com/index.php?/topic/757-have-you-found-any-alamy-photographs-august-2013/ Sprocket had the pic of the new doctor who (I think) taken in Cardiff. I would assume that he hadn't got permission or hadn't had chance to get a model release for the pic so to ask a dumb question how was that sold?
  8. Thanks for the replies especially OneWay for the nod on the keywording direction!
  9. Just out of interest and by no means through being a new member on the forum when did you sell your first image? How much was it a relief to know that you where actually doing something that others wanted to buy?
  10. Here is another noobie question:-) What are the pro's & Con's of opting into the distribution agreement. I received the email from Alamy asking if I wanted to opt in.
  11. Thanks for the welcoming words and thanks Ann for the advice!
  12. Thanks for the constructive replies to the thread, thanks!
