  4. Keywords, my big problem

    Don't feel compelled to use all 50 tags, but do rigorously provide all relevant permutations. Don't skimp on the location, minimum of town, county or state, country. Occasionally however the location is irrelevant and would only bring unwanted views, degrading your CTR. Received wisdom appears to suggest that the Caption is at least as important as the tags, so think carefully about your wording. Having said that I have seen photos used in the papers where there has been no caption at all! Once you start seeing lots of views look carefully at the search terms, and ask yourself if you have covered all bases with all of your photos. There's rarely a day goes by when I don't add to or fine tune keywords as a result of a customer's search. It's a never ending process......
  5. My zooms are plummeting since I paused submitting

    Not sure if any of these theories hold water. There are so many images available compared to most individual contributor's collections, that variability is the norm. My zooms go up and down with the weather, or maybe the phases of the moon, there is no detectable pattern. In any event many of my recent sales were never zoomed. Zooms are encouraging, but, these days, it is becoming more unusual to score an exclusive zoom, not something to lose sleep over.

    Thanks for the spot Iain, I normally look at the Times every day, but on hols at present!
  8. No Photo Sales

    There's 134 million photos available on Alamy, 20 images is a tiny fraction of the total. Upload several thousand of attractive photos with excellent keywording and you will have better chance of success. There's no easy way, no magic bullet, it's getting harder all the while....
  9. From memory I think I had 60 photos up for sale, but it took a while, about a year, after joining. From the database, my first 4 sales were for $42, $320, $400, $341 - those were the days!
  10. News rejections

    I had a live news shot bounce some while ago. There was to be a charity auction of a series of dog sculptures and one was stood outside the Sage concert hall. My shot of the dog was not considered newsworthy, even though it was something of a one off. It certainly ain't there now! Been reluctant to push live news since, but no harm done, the photo passed QC.
  11. Decentered lenses

    Good to hear you got it sorted John! Any chance of some comparisons with 18-55?
  12. Thanks for the comforting thought Gen, they passed this evening. Us retired folk lose track of holidays......
  13. Not sure if this is correct but has the rubric in AIM changed lately - it now reads "usually within 24 hours"? Can't recall seeing the "usually" in the past but quite possibly I haven't noticed it. Message brought about by anxiety over an unusually long period in QC - could be I'm doomed, doomed....

  15. Decentered lenses

    I don't use a hood with it, the only lens in my collection without a hood. Never researched the topic, got me interested! Did you keep your original Sony standard zoom, possibly better than the 16-50?
