  1. Same for me too, except Slovenia rather than Czech Republic, low $sale.
  2. Nice to get an early sale at start of the month. Cannabis products in an Amsterdam store window, mid $$ sale.
  3. What is the point of making a comment like this on the 4th day of a month that contains 31 days?
  4. I don't know about the OP, but I had exactly the same price sale today and mine was NU. There were others reporting the same as me in another thread today too. I'm opting out of NU in April.
  5. This came in today. $1.25 gross. Country: WorldwideUsage: EditorialMedia: Editorial websiteIndustry sector: Travel & tourismImage Size: Any sizeStart: 11 February 2019End: 11 February 2024NU Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity With my relatively small portfolio and sales, I used to think any sale was beneficial, ie, good for Alamy rank, so better search placement, so perhaps better sales numbers. But at 62 cents net for a sale, I would rather not sell in the first place (and dissapointed that Alamy sells such licences at these prices). Come 1 April 2019, I'm out of Novel Use, its just not worth it.
  6. FYI - we are not allowed to discuss other stock agencies / Alamy competitors in this forum. Re income, you might find it informative to look at the monthly posts 9n this forum on sales/revenue that some contributors report.

  8. I had to identify images with buses in them, so at least Alamy give us variety in what we have to look for (meant as sarcastic humour). First time had to do this though for quite some months.
  9. I would start by looking at the titles you already have, eg the word tomato used to describe cloth, elastic bands described with the word architecture.
  10. That's exactly the response I got yesterday from Alamy re a similar situation for myself.
  11. This question has been asked and answered in the forum many times before, if you search the forum for appropriate posts, eg quality control fail, you will find answers to your question.
  12. I also had one of those sales recently, more info available here: https://www.alamy.com/customer/help/affiliate-program.aspx
  13. If you want punch in your images, then the histogram in both your camera and post processing software is an important tool to utilise. Make sure (where approriate) that the histogram curve indicates a good range of tonality from blacks to whites. Sometimes, just moving white points further to the right on your histogram during post processing is enough to give the image a boost, then you can process colour separately as preferred. I have a tendency to underexpose images with my camera, and where the histogram indicates this, just moving that white slider to the right makes a big difference to the images tonal range.
  14. No galleries, yet, and no mugshot either, have just mixed up images on the first page to give a better overview of what's available. Work in progress essentially. https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/philipprestonphotography
