  1. Sorry for moaning, I know it’s festive season. However the drop of 20% in income (commission from 50% to 40%) is really HURTING as my number of sales are not catching up. Happy Christmas to everyone. (this isn’t me morning. Genuine message ) Sung
  2. Approx 10% less than the last year, but I am happy with the payment.
  3. Yes, I did. But the video inserted in the thread was specifically about synchronisation of keywords.
  4. Hi, Matt Yes & no because it was actually an Alamy Forum thread with the video inserted. Thanks Sung
  5. Not long ago, I came across a thread regarding how to synchronise keywords from Alamy to Lightroom using plug in (or am I going senile? ☹️ I hope not) I have gone through many pages & searched the forum but failed to locate the topic, which was with a (youtube) video tutorial. Can anyone help me to find this thread? Is there a way to mark threads so that I can find them easily later on? Thanks Sung
  6. Hi Brian Thank you so much for your help. Much appreciated. 👍 You must be a botanist. Great knowledge. Sung
  7. Isn't it sad? The thing which upsets me most was the unhuman response (in fact 'computer says no') from MS. I never experienced this type of MS replies before. I think it proves that the attitude of Alamy towards contributors has changed totally for the worse. Or MS staff are also demoralised so they can't be bothered either. When I started this thread, I thought it might have been an isolated case but apparently not. I am beginning to think if there are any sales team as such to negotiate prices, perhaps all laid off. Just they accept any prices computer brings up.
  8. Just in case anyone might be interested in the result of my query to MS about the above mentioned super low price for Advertising & Promotion Usage. In short, after an exchange of a few emails with MS, I am non the wiser. The following was the answer (maybe copy and paste from their operating manuals). "This customer would be a key customer in which we can negotiate on prices, in comparison to new customers who come to the site and pay the shop front pricing. Our sales teams work extremely hard to negotiate on deals with all forms of customers and always try t
  9. Thanks, Doc. I was wondering if my thought would be shared by others. Just I was reluctantly assuming it is a new norm. Certainly nothing to loose, I will see what their explanation (or excuse) would be on this matter. Sung
  10. The usage of one of the images reported sold this morning is as follows. Country: WorldwideUsage: Advertising and promotion, Marketing campaign or customer pitchesMedia: Promotional brochures/ leaflets/insertsStart: 14 July 2021Duration: Unlimited What does this mean? The price $6.73 ???????? Well may be they will print only 1 or 2 leaflets to share worldwide. Sung
  11. Thanks, Joseph. You are right. I just had a moment of confusion. Sung
  12. Thanks, MDM. So does it mean that to opt out of 'Distribution' completely, I also need to untick UK? And are my images still available in UK? Sung
  13. Hi Betty. Thank you for your reply. I do agree with you that the way is set up unclearly. But maybe my question was not well phrased. When I tried to opt out of Distribution, after having unticked everywhere, I, by chance, noticed that under European territories, the second last territory was 'United Kingdom'. It prompted me to think; Do I need to leave UK 'ticked' or 'unticked'?. It is a bit confusing (at least to me). Surely Alamy doesn't have distributors in the UK. If I untick 'UK', does it mean that my images are not available at all even in the U
  14. This may sound obvious but - When I opt out 'Distribution', do I need to untick United Kingdom (European territories) as well or to leave UK ticked? Thanks Sung
  15. Thank you, MizBrown. It might be certainly a miniature. Sung
  16. Maybe donkeys in general have been crossed bred for so long? Thank you anyway. Sung
  17. Can you please ID these lovely and fluffy donkeys? Thanks Sung
  18. @Christine M Baker Sorry for late response. No, it was my first sale at $1. I have been with Alamy for more than 15 years. Sung
  19. A bit late but Happy New Year to all and wish you all the best. Please note that I am not trying to spoil anything here but I felt I needed to inform you this. A sale was reported today (Good) but was sold at $1 (really Bad). The usage is as follows. Country: WorldwideUsage: Academic faculty pack, Pack of unwatermarked, copyright safe high resolution images for use in non-commercial projects such as teaching materials, essays, dissertations, theses and presentationsMedia: Non-commercial projects such as teaching materials, essays, dissertations, theses and
  20. I don't remember exactly, but it has been a while since I installed Malwarebytes. That must be the reason why. In fact it was you who recommended Malwarebytes to me on the forum. Though I am still puzzled about the other (Extendscript Toolkit thing). Thank you again, sb.
  21. Over the weekend, I shut down my iMac (High Sierra, 10.13.6). This morning when I turned on the mac, I was greeted with the following two windows. What do these mean? What are they for and why? Are they related to each other? I have a Fee version of Malwarebytes and CS6 in my iMac. Sung
  22. Thank you for sharing your experience. In my case, data loss wasn't an issue as I had two backup copies of the troubled ext drive. In the end I bough another disk to replace it. Sung
  23. Yes, I understand. Luckily I have two backup copies of that particular drive, so no loss of data. But I might try it just to see how it goes. Thanks @wiskerke
