  1. Commission change - James West comments

    That's extraordinary- are you really paying $500/year, because that's what 10c/image/month amounts to for 400 images. You should get this changed straight away. No-one has been offered those terms for years. It must have been abandoned in about 2005.
  2. Tier 1 fees

    Dunno about the egg but there's this leftover Scotch....
  3. Tier 1 fees

    That's definitely not the Answer.
  4. Tier 1 fees

    Exactly.
  5. Commission structure single thread

    I see the Red Arrows are flying under marginal conditions again.
  6. Is anyone elses My Alamy looking wrong again

    Perhaps you just don't have any views. Pro rata to my port size you'd only have 8 anyway.
  7. Commission structure single thread

    Are you referring to contractual agreements, rather than an act of parliament?. When you said "illegal" I took it to mean that but some use the term more broadly. I'm not aware of a special provision in the CDPA hence the question. BTW "I'm telling you" isn't really a reference. I'm genuinely interested. I'm happy to take someone's word on it if they're an authority in some way.

    bit of a bald statement, I'm a business. I'm not "amoral". You're a business. Are you?
  9. Commission structure single thread

    Can we have a reference for that? It would seem to be an extraordinarily restrictive practice.
  10. Commission change - James West comments

    Of course it has. The image collection is an asset. So is its IP. It has a good trading record.
  11. Commission change - James West comments

    Alamy doesn't have "cash flow problems"- where did that come from? The reason given for the cut is to fund future growth.
  12. Images sold in December

    One of my regulars- 10% of my entire Alamy turnover, in fact. My average for this subject is $86 (or was), but a disappointing distro fee this time.

    Then perhaps you should have kept the fact of the exchange to yourself. I think Alamy expects the gist of CR replies to end up on the forum, even if not verbatim. Now all we have is a tease about it. We share here.
  14. I wouldn't expect that to pass QC as-is. Maybe resized to minimum with some extra sharpening.
  15. Commission change - James West comments

    There was. It's before mine too but James mentioned it in the vid and I recall it in the legacy commission table. Here's an old page https://www.alamy.com/stock-photography-faqs-why-alamy.asp Optional $1.20/image/year in exchange for a higher commission. Far more than I, and many, earn even now.
