  1. Thanks so much for your detailed tips. I could sit down at the Shard window and used my dark sweater for glare. Covered most of the landmarks in an exhausting day. Now on to the rest of England for the next two weeks. Cheers
  2. My walking route will take me by most of that stuff, but wow. It's going to be packed and I just won't be able to cover it all. I'm now thinking I'll leave the tripod at the airport hotel.
  3. Thanks all. I'll go for the Shard. I will be walking around with a tripod for twilight shots. Hopefully, I can leave it at the desk, or something, when I go to the top to shoot.
  4. I'm going to be in London for one day on Saturday and wonder if anyone has a suggestion about an aerial view. I probably won't have time for both, but would the London Eye, or the Shard, be the better bet for good photos?
  5. On Demand Download, and Single or Other Download. There's also Enhanced which can be quite high fees, but I haven't seen any of those. We don't know gross. Cut varies from 20-30% depending on sales history. I'm at the second level now, so about 25%. My highest SOD has been $42 net, ODDs are now $2.48 but subs are $0.33 each.
  6. I think you do have enough images. Even if most are editorial, I find that doesn't slow sales down as much as I feared. I found the upload process manageable. I'm trying another one that ironically does not accept AdobeRGB images (or editorial) with much less success. Sales are poor and the upload process saps my will to live. I just like the idea of not having all my eggs in one basket.
  7. Mostly, in terms of downloads. In terms of income, about half and half ($383 Subs vs $356 for ODDs and SODs)
  8. I had a slightly sub-par month here (the new normal?): 18 sales for $586 gross, only $228 for me. My MS experiment is now consistently beating Alamy, with $248 this month.
  9. For a long time I too held out for better prices with low volume versus high volume and low prices. (The low volume low price agents I drop) I now think that if there are a hundred holdouts like me, or a thousand or more, it wouldn't make a difference to prices. So with Alamy's drop in contributor share, I dipped my toe in the MS waters. Just the one agent I picked now produces the same monthly income as Alamy. Yes, it's tough to see the low prices, but the volume is very high, and I've doubled my income. Am I contributing to the downfall of society? I don't think so. I'm adapting.
  10. An understandable reaction. I too had that $1.25 direct sale, with $0.50 to me. It was a " NU Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity". Quite novel indeed.
  11. Yes, it's bad. My third sale of the month today netted me $0.50. I've had 128 of those kind of sales at the other place so far this month.
  12. I had the same for one image of Alcazar. Eight listings, with 3 refunds in the $25-$30 range, so in the end I got two sales.
  13. Your assuming the "Region" means location of publication. I think it means location of purchase. Again, a US publisher can publish a book in the UK, no? They can certainly sell a book in the UK. Then it will be read and copied there too. The Region will be US, but license details indicate country as "Worldwide". John, why fret? Double your numbers and let DACS decide.
  14. Here's a question John. If a US publisher sells a book in the UK, and people in the UK make copies of parts of the book which include your picture, are you owed any copyright royalties?
  15. That's true John. However, I take it that "Region" refers to the point of origin for the sale, not intended use. So I look to the License Detail column to see Country: Worldwide for the actual usage. So I think the other John is OK.
