  1. 40% it is

    Well, if it's a few bucks sale you'll not notice the difference that much
  2. Odd Alamy Measures

    Alamy website is always slow, doesn't matter which world's corner you are browsing from, measures are down a few times per year as usual even for several days. So, I don't see nothing new. It would be great if with all the money Alamy will earn from our 10% off they will move to a much better and reliable server and website. Hopefully!
  3. Info about a sale

    Don't think so as the report said it's a worldwide publication

  5. Dry January

    My first sale of 2019 was my image PW0XRK sold for Presentation or newsletters, Use in a presentation/talk. A panoramic image for such use! Yeah, sure, presentation or talk!!! If only I could opt out from this authentic scam called "PU"!
  6. Dry January

    Honestly, I don't understand all these posts, month after month, where lots of people is complaining about a "dry month", "slow month", etc. Especially, when you discover, then, in the "how was your month" posts, that the month was ok or great for the majority of members! It's only Jan. 11th today, guys! Let's wait a couple of weeks more before giving a final verdict about how really was the month!
  7. How to set exclusive image for Alamy

    Did you ask Alamy to opt out of Presentation? A couple of years ago I asked Alamy to opt out of PU because sick of fraudulent uses. As a few days ago I sold a panoramic image of a Kuala Lumpur skyline for a highly doubtful Powerpoint presentation, I decided it's time to opt out also of this use.
  8. Second photo of mine you reported in two days only. If you keep going like that I should have to put you on my pay roll! Thank you again, Brian! Stefano
  9. How do you set an image you want to be exclusive for Alamy? Do you click on "Only available on Alamy"?
  10. Wrong license for a Lonely Planet cover

    After 2 months trying repeatedly to know why my photo published in the front cover of a Lonely Planet guide which came out in October (with wrong author), I got an answer from Lonely Planet France last week: Dear Stefano, I come back to you about the mistake of copyright for the french guide Lonely Planet - Essentiel de Barcelone. Firstly, excuse us for this error. I confirm that I send the bill for the picture to XXXX/Alamy today. And I modified the copyright with your name for the next reprint. Everything should be fine in the next few days. Best wishes, Finally, today the sale popped up in my account and this really sounded like a happy end until I discovered the details for the license were WRONG as they reported placement: inside instead of front cover!!!!! The story then is not over yet!
