  1. "In perpetuity" also applies to TV and movie uses. We see occasional licenses for some of our news images that appear to have been used as stills in documentaries
  2. I had five $20 "other fees" debits today. A few months ago I had three or four, each less than $5. If it's an adjustment, why wouldn't it be listed as a refund and another sale at a lower price? Sent off a note to contributors@alamy, and imagine I'm not the only one. "Other fees" is way too vague (not to mention annoying); if they're not going to provide more info than that, they should expect a lot of questions.
  3. I update our customer search activity weekly onto a spreadsheet dating back to 2011, but had not been aware that the search terms are available. When I click on my zooms, I read "this page shows all the views and zooms your images have received for a given search term. You can click on an image to modify the keywords associated with it." But can I access what those search terms are? I can't find the magic button.
  4. A wise (and long-retired) editorial and stock photographer friend, who found himself with XXXX Images in the '90s after it acquired an agency with which he worked, liked to say "XXXX Images cares about photographers like McDonalds cares about cows."
  5. In my experience, textbook covers are like inside uses in that they don't require model releases. Those books are not considered commercial products. They are often sold in bulk to entities such as school districts and sometimes to an entire state's schools. Individual consumers typically do not buy them. Janis in Texas
  6. I write complete captions, but add even more details in the "tell us more about your image" area on the Optional page (the one with the "number of people in the image" etc.). This is where I add context that just might make the image more relevant to a prospective purchaser. For example, on images of a shelter for immigrant families on the Texas-Mexico border, the caption includes the who, what and where. On the Optional page, I added context about Pres. Trump's policy to separate families at the border causing chaos. I did include Trump, president, etc., in the keywords.
  7. Ditto on the $0.01 here. Does anyone know what it's from?
  8. What am I doing wrong? I type in Firstname Lastname Alamy - site:alamy.com and get what looks like a portion of our collection straight from the Alamy site. When I try it without the spaces in front of and behind the hypen, I get an error. And when I try Firstname Lastname Alamy-alamy.com, I get pretty much the same as with - site.alamy.com. Suggestions?
  9. How do you discover what search terms clients are using? I only know how to find the number of views, not the search terms.
  10. How can I figure out whether a particular image of mine has ever been licensed, and if so, the details of the license? Surely there's something simpler than clicking on "sales history" on my dashboard and scrolling through seven years' worth of sales.
  11. $280 last month for a magazine cover with under 50K circulation. Does TV count as editorial? If so, $200 use back in March 2017.
