  1. The licensing structure at SS changed. There are all kinds of different subscription models. Some pay better, and there are some bulk packages that give 10 cents even to the highest level of submitter. I had a good month with more On Demand and Single and Other sales.
  2. I'm glad to see some are getting very good results this month. Alas, not me. 10 sales for $235 gross, $92 net. Even AS with less than half my images got $72. In spite of the drama, SS even came in with $156 net. I have to wonder how many good performers are exclusive. I'm not.
  3. No joy at Alamy. Only 68 sales for $1800 gross. Doubled, that's still half the income of any previous year (other than 2006 when I started).
  4. On Alamy I peaked in 2012, but I'm not sure who or what ruined stock. First it was RF. Then MS. Yes the halcyon days of stock are over, but stock ain't dead yet.
  5. I've been away a while (new house, endless projects). I see the SS fiasco is a hot topic here too. To be honest, I think it's a tempest in a teapot. Yes, now instead of getting $0.33 for a subscription sale, I get as low as $0.10. But the reality is that I've also been getting a lot of other higher sale prices for the other license packages or one-offs. I'm actually having a good month over there. So far, here I have $84 in net, while there I have $119. The sky didn't fall for me yet. Maybe I'm more inured to the 10 cents sales because I thought the first tier 25 cents when I joined was already so bad. But in the end, not so bad after all.
  6. Good to see some of you are still raking it in. Me, I've had a poor month with 15 sales for $247 gross ($96 net). My other experiments went well this month ($156 and $64 net).
  7. I just think it odd that in order to get my own stats on Alamy, I've got to connect with Facebook.
  8. I wonder if some tech savvy person could explain to me why it takes so long to open the "Your Image" tab in Alamy Measures. I notice that my browser is "sending request to Facebook" while I'm waiting. Is that normal? What's Facebook got to do with Alamy measures? Inquiring minds (mine) would like to know.
  9. The downward trend continues. Not a cliff so much as a black diamond run.
  10. Following on from the cliff thread, I can report a dismal month with 16 sales (good) for $284gross/$112net (terrible). Experiment 1 did OK ($145) while experiment 2 is coming along with only 1/3 of my images ($75).
  11. I claim for UK licenses and for other countries that specify a territory of worldwide. These will also be available in the UK.
  12. I doubt I have that many sales to China. Other agents haven't fallen as flat as Alamy. I have 9 sales so far this month and all are under $20 ($8 net).
  13. Yes. My 10x at the moment won't last, but I get about 3x more income now as Alamy revenue is sliding down. Definitely worthwhile. I've seen enough promising agents bite the dust in the past - the one basket approach doesn't work for me.
  14. I think not. My sales VOLUME in the last five years has been creeping up. My REVENUE has been steadily going down at Alamy. I see no change since last December when I decided to spread my eggs around. I supply Getty too. My wife is always telling me I'm wasting my time submitting to several stock sites. She thinks once it's out there in the "interweb", everyone sees it. That is not my experience.
