  1. Hi Stephen, Wow, lots of very good comments here, really appreciate your help! Captions and tags are really something I need to work on. Upload a photo might just take few seconds but add those for each photo might take 1 to 5 mins, which is something I did not realise at the beginning. I only shot what I liked before which might be a problem. You're totally correct on composition and how photo could be picked by and sold. I will work on those. Once again thanks a lot! All the best to you! Yang Li
  2. Hi everyone, hope you all are having a wonderful day! I just started this less a month ago and have uploded about 1000 photos, my portfolio only shows 700+ for now as I need to finish adding captions and tags. So far 0 sales and 0 zoom, which is totally fine, as I wanna take this slow and make it right. That's why hope to get some comments and critique from you, and make any adjustment and improvement for future uploads. Here's the link: https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/leesaliens As you might have noticed most of photos are from local area (different places
  3. A late congratulations on your 10th anniversary! I am in for about 10 days now, long way to go... Haha, I was about to say that as a starter. The good thing after knowing how much you all made for last 10 photos is to keep my mind clearer for some wishful thinking. But it's all ok, I should try at least.
  4. Hi Jill, I think you're right, they also post lot of stuff on LinkedIn for promotion, this should have cleared my question now. Thanks for your reply! Yang
  5. Hi David, Very good point, I live in China and we do have lots of other media sites. Thanks for your kind reminder! Yang

  8. Hi Steve, much appreciate your quick response and sharing the link, it's very helpful! Good luck to you too!
  9. Hi everyone, I am a newbie from China. Never thought to sell any photos before despite I love travelling and taking lots of photos . Recently had some dramatic changes in my life, need to rethink my own career and future, while doing so I was told try this and that, I think why not do something I might really enjoy for once? With such positive thoughts, I submitted 1st trial photos to Alamy with long waited QC pass, then days working and trying to understand Image Manager, also going through threads on forum, still found tons of questions like : - low discoverability,
  10. Hi newbie here, just joined for less a week. Sorry if this is a silly question or has been asked/answered many times before. I tried search this on forum but did not find any topic regarding to it. Can I upload photo that I already posted on social media before? Just wanna make sure I won't violate any copyright or exclusive issues. Thanks to you all and everyone have a great day!
