  1. Well done, John. I'm in my 13th year and still got 570 to go!! Seems an age ago when my submissions went in by CD!! Jim
  2. I'm not an expert, but could it be a species of Milk Cap? Might give you a start point. Rufous Milk Cap fits the coloration. One of those not to be eaten! Jim.
  3. A disappointing 3 sales but March is usually low for me anyway. Zooms and views are up and CTR at 0.58. On a more positive side my average price per image continues to be up on last year. Jim
  4. My images on Alamy have always been exclusive and, currently, I can see little change. Sales are up slightly, views are up, and zooms holding on an even keel. Jim
  5. 7 sales here and average price per image up slightly. Views and zooms down a touch as is CTR. BUT - not a bad start to the year! Jim
  6. Sort of average start to the year for me. 6 for $252 for which one was $$$ - I'm holding my breath!! Views up at 6497 and zooms at 25. CTR crashed at the end of the month due to all embracing search words covering my key area - as many views here as I've had for complete months in the past! Jim
  7. Just had one received for a 'pass' on the 28th Jan. Jim.
  8. Zooms stand at 15 for me for month to date so far. This is about my average if not slightly above.
  9. It started to drizzle for me with a couple of sales yesterday so that's a start for 2019. Unfortunately one was a distributor sale through a bulk discount scheme which might just buy me half a cup of coffee.......
  10. 1,010, which is around average me. Will probably be lower this year as I try some different approaches. Jim
  11. Same here, Bryan!! December was disappointing with just 2 sales. Views were 3726, zooms 15, and CTR at 0.40. 2018 produced a new record sales quantity beating last years record by 1!! Income, however, was down 20%. All this despite uploading another 1K+ images. Time to do something different in 2019!!
  12. A month or two ago I had my biggest sale for a number of years. Unfortunately it lasted 9 days before the refund appeared. A short while after a similar shot sold for around a tenth of the first. I don't know if there was any connection or not but it's annoying as well as disappointing. I wish this wouldn't happen. Jim
  13. I appreciate that this may not work for everybody, but thanks Alamy, it fits in with my work process.
  14. Further to my comment above I must add that I too am not happy with 20% reduction in commission. Like many contributors, I run a small business of which income from Alamy represents around 5% of my income. I wish it was more! On average I upload around 70 images per month on a regular basis. My downfall is probably that I just like making images. In the light of the proposed reduction in commission one has to consider reality as I have a business to run as well as Alamy. I kept faith after the last reduction to 50% but this, together with overall price reductions, meant that the rest of my business has been subsidising my Alamy contributions. This obviously cannot continue. My own answer I guess is rather simplistic. I just adjust the way I do things and put emphasis into other areas. In particular print sales, which I will describe as 'exhibition' quality and usually command $$$ prices. These particular images would never go into stock because of the anticipated low prices they are likely to realise which I consider would be an undervaluation of my work. I only need to sell one of these per month to exceed the income I get from stock. The current situation has now got me to thinking why on earth haven't I done this before? If the commission remained at 50% I would probably grin and bear it as it's an outlet for my obsession of making images!! Jim.
  15. I would be happy with 50% image exclusivity to Alamy. My 9K+ are all exclusive to Alamy anyway. I submit to other libraries and in each case my submissions are exclusive - no duplicates anywhere. Jim.
  16. A couple of sales yesterday took me to a new high regarding annual sales quantity. This exceeded last years 'record'. Income is another subject!! Jim
  17. Back to my target average of one per week with 5 sales during November. 4,370 views, 26 zooms, CTR 0.59. Jim.
