  1. I deleted all of my images over a year ago, but Alamy has just informed they (Alamy) are still making sales with the deleted images so obviously they still have the images on file for people to buy and are licensing images I don't want licensed. This is very troublesome for me as I did not sign away my copyright when I originally joined Alamy. Never thinking they would have use of my images forever. How to I make sure all images I have ever placed here are no longer able to be licensed by Alamy?
  2. Thanks everyone for your responses. "Welcome to the world of stock photography along with the other millions of photographers." Actually I've been doing this for a bit of time I think the reality is that places like Alamy have followed Chicken Little believing the sky is falling Back when Tony Stone was around very few companies were needing images compared to today were not only does a Mom n Pop company need to have a dynamic website ,companies need to have energetic blogs etc all requiring colorful art to attract viewers. The need for photography in the commercial world has never been greater yet Stock Agencies have blown it. Alamy would do good by hiring some real business negotiators not just a bunch of corporate lawyers holding down their contributors. In any case I've decided to bow out of Alamy so hopefully you guys will have one less photographer clambering for a $29 sale. Heck if I make one real sale on my self hosted website that would justify years making sales here at Alamy Finishing let me ask, I've deleted my images, am I to assume Alamy will truly delete them or do I need to take steps to assure their deletion from the Alamy servers? Thanks, jeff
  3. I must have something set up incorrectly and hoping someone can point me in the correct direction. Most of my images are set for Rights Managed yet every-time I make a sale the price is ridiculously low. Example I just made three sales here is the described licensing: Country: Worldwide Usage: iQ sale: Corporate Package Use – Internal use and external non-advertising use Industry sector: Travel & tourism Start: 13 August 2013 End: 13 August 2023 Worldwide ten years of Corporate Usage for $29.00, when I try and plug in the usage for a purchase the cost comes out to be over $800. For me it's the principal I would rather not make any sales than even a single 1/4 page one time editorial usage for one single territory not the entire world for something as low as $29 that's just absolutely ridiculous. Is there anyway to adjust the way my images are licensed to set limits on how low they can be licensed for or do I have something set wrong that allows this? Any help would be very appreciated because this truly disturbs my principals. Thanks, Jeff
  4. thank you for the response. May I ask who are the successful video agencies for you? thanks, jeff
  5. I am trying to find info on submitting my b-roll footage for video stock sales. I see Alamy is now offering video footage and I would like to keep all video stock with the same agency I have my photography however I can't seem to find any info about uploading, requirements, etc... what am I missing? Thanks, jeff
