  1. Had an Alamywhack today

    Strangely enough I had one yesterday too. It was a four word search which produced 14 images of mine which was also the sum of the total views with one zoom. I will wait in anticipation..... Jim.
  2. Light tents

    I've got an old Lastolite light tent which I've had for around 30 years and does the job for me. This is a material product which suspends from a support. However...I've looked on the WEX website and it looks like this product has been discontinued and replaced by items now called Studio CubeLites. These are far more expensive than my old light tent and the cheapest I could find is a Pop-up Light Tent by Interfit. If you want to have a look at the various items go to the WEX website and type in light tent in the search panel. You may find what you're looking for here. Jim
  3. Have you Found any Alamy Photographs October

    Hear, hear. Jim
  4. How was your September 2018?

    Disappointing. Just 2 distributor sales. Even more disappointing was a $$$ 'sale' which would have been my highest since 2014 - it lasted just 9 days before the refund appeared!! Views way down, but zooms way up. At least my CTR is now looking healthy. Jim
  5. Have you found any Alamy images September 2018

    Thanks for the spot, Clare. Jim
  6. Have you found any Alamy images September 2018

    Thanks for highlighting Calendars, Pearl. I had a quick look at some on my local area and found one of mine. I had four in this years efforts so hopefully there may be others lurking elsewhere. Jim
  7. Dramatic drop in views

    Views down significantly here too but, conversely, my zooms have soared this month. Just hope this is a positive trend. Jim
  8. How was your August 2018?

    Four sales, zooms even, views down 40%. But the purchase of my Rolex gets ever nearer!! Jim
  9. Hows your CTR doing from 1st August?

    This month so far my average is 0.39 which is just below my long term average and is about on par for the average for this year. Lowest has been 0.12 for last April and highest 0.64 for last June. It's been a bit of a roller coaster. Jim
  10. What?!

    I've now got one of these. I accept NU for what it is, but for use in the Industry sector of Travel and tourism and all that goes with it, is someone here having a laugh? I am an elder statesman, if you like, in this business and this is an insult to my professionalism. If a true market price was paid for this work I would have no complaint, or even to the original concept of NU on it's own, but to almost give it away.......especially when NU and the whole sales scenario appears to just not fit. Jim
  11. How was your July?

    Bottoming out!! Just 3 sales but average price up. Due, I guess, to no distributor sales. Views up substantially but zooms down and consequently so is CTR! Ah well, here's to August! Jim
  12. Mine is now up and running. Jim
  13. Hi all, please read yesterdays thread on this subject if it helps - there's 40+ responses. Jim.
  14. Alamy poll - picture needs

    Email please. Don't use Twitter. Jim.
  15. Complicated captcha?

    This is one thing that I find very annoying. It's not Alamy quality! To make a point it's just taken me 10 screens to work through to get this far into the Forum. On the rare occasion I login with no screen, and at the other end of the scale I have been as far as 13 screens. Even more infuriating is the quality of some of the screens - some are so dark you cannot distinguish the content. Is this a scheme to reduce traffic into the website I wonder!!! Moan over but I can't be positive about this when you are trying to run a business. JIm
