    While you're doing it, can you also exclude QC failures and deleted images from the "Alamy exclusive" and "Alamy non-exclusive" filter results? There's no point in including images that aren't (and never will be) for sale in these filter results. It just adds confusion and makes life more difficult.




    Hi Mark


    I am missing something.  Where is the filter for exclusive and non-exclusive?  I spent last more than 10 mins looking for it.  :wacko:





  2. I don't know how but this 'Duckukong' is installed in my mac.  I want to remove it but 'Drag it into Trash' doesn't work.


    When I searched this topic, a lot of entries were written by malwaretips.com but in 2015 or 2016.

    This site also suggest to download software called 'Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac.

    The more I read any of the search results, the less I am inclined to click anything to download an app to remove it.


    Is there anyone who recently experienced this Duckokong and removed it successfully? 

    If so, I would be very grateful if you could share your experience.


    My iMac runs on Sierra and I use Safari for web browsing.

    I know which company you are referring to as I supply them directly as well.  The $8.68 license is for a Digital Regional Calendar, for distribution only within its titled region. Print run 150.  Even directly they never paid £30-40 for these, only for the full sized, large distribution calendars.  It is still annoying to have sold to them via Alamy when I have sent the same images directly but I can understand why they do it.




    Pearl, you are more discerning than I am. :)  I missed that bit, especially print run 150.  Thank you for correcting it. 

    Anyway what I was trying to say was that from my memory, the prices I used to get paid for direct sales, was between £25.00 - £50 (paper calendars).



  4. 18 sales, lowest $8.68 (how come can a calendar usage be so low?  I know which company bought.  When they used to buy direct from photographers, they would have paid £30-40)

    highest $96.13.  I suspect some duplicate sales which I made an inquiry to MS, but no reply yet.  I am dreading to see multiple refunds.


    But lets be positive. Assuming no refunds, this year is already the best year so far both in terms of $$$ and volume.




  5. About a week ago, when I looked at Alamy Measures (Your Images) of the previous day,

    it showed that one keyword search resulted in 4 images displayed and one was zoomed.

    In itself, it is nothing extraordinary about it.  


    However those 4 images were all mine. Yes! Out of 155 million images! It made me smile and happy for the morning. 

    The icing on the cake was, a few days later, the image was reported sold for $60 (not distribution).

    I was chuffed.  :)

  6. A couple of days ago, 7 sales were reported which I was very happy about.

    But at closer look, it was just one image purchased 7 times by the same buyer, of which prices range from $48 to $96 (distribution sales).

    What bothers me is the identical licence details, ie, usage, media, print no, duration, etc. are the same.

    I sent an email to MS and asked if these are destined for refunds but had no reply (48 hours) which is very unusual.

    Can anyone guess what is going on?  

    I am not holding my breath just in case.  But it would be a shame if 8 of those are to be refunded.....
