  1. Guitar, Drum and Bass On Bass... Tina Weymouth BBC4, 18th Jan 2019 'Alamy Ltd.' listed among suppliers of archive images. Great programme for all musos here, BTW.
  2. key words and title

    Yes, you can. In fact, it's advisable!
  3. How many did you upload in 2018?

    324. ~10 sold during the year, of which four were taken as news, three sold as active LiveNews at the time and on a couple of occasions since.
  4. ...and it won't be from such a website. Worrying about how they may have sourced the photos, though.
  5. License- what?

    It appears that they are trying to wriggle out of the licensing abuse of PU/presentation sales and therefore avoid all the subsequent hassle and workload when these are brought to their attention. By bundling usages in this way, it makes it far more difficult to ascertain if a buyer has misused a cheap licence. By creating such nonsense licences as this for RM images, they don't need contributors to declare content for sale as RF, it's almost being done by default.
  6. What kinds of images could be sell on Alamy?

    Not going to go into details with all the text, just to mention that you should never format dates like this: 06/25/2014, as that would be correctly displayed as 25/06/2014 in the UK and some other countries. For similar reasons, best not to use 25th (or 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.) Just use the numbers for more general acceptance internationally.
  7. OK, staying in and waiting for Jools Holland to start (UK reference, sorry to those outside the UK!) Despite a lot of moaning from me about low prices and licensing abuse (expect this to expand to include references to % in the New Year!), 2018 was my best year here, both in number of licenses and $ totals. I actually passed my 2017 totals around June, then things slowed considerably. The average licence value ,though, slipped yet again to its lowest ever (~$36 gross). Sale volume was helped and sales value was helped considerably by my first Live News sales. At least I know where my future efforts should be directed here on Alamy! December saw 4 sales for $129, the last of which appears to be a relicense of an abused presentation sale (I've yet to confirm this with Alamy). The total for the year was 54 sales for $1,945. Edit: Happy and prosperous New Year to all!
  8. One of mine from 'The Sun' GUESS WHO'S BACK Childhood favourite Toys β€˜R’ Us is coming back – but it’s not how you might have imagined it
  9. Images sold in December

    Another one to add to the news sales. From 'The Sun'.
  10. Merry Christmas

    You too, Bob. May I likewise wish everyone a very Merry Christmas or equivalent good spirits to everyone who doesn't choose to celebrate (for whatever reason). :) In equal measure, despite much ill-will which has abounded recently, I would like to offer good wishes to all the Alamy staff. Differences may be prominent of late, but I am sure that most of us are all just trying to do our best in difficult times. πŸŽ…πŸ’žπŸ˜Š
  11. Uncleared sales from July?

    Parm, while I feel and understand your frustration and opinions, it really doesn't pay to insult Alamy's clients here.
  12. Put it in the suggestions forum - https://discussion.alamy.com/forum/11-alamy/ 'Give us your suggestions and ideas for Alamy here. We promise to read everything posted if you promise to keep all posts constructive, deal?'
  13. Images sold in December

    iQ sale to Education sector, mid-$$ Sale #2 of the month - phew! Sales will likely dry up for the month after tomorrow, so thankful that this one rolled in.
  14. Question over what constitutes presentation/newsletter

    Sadly, I can't ever see that happening.
