  1. My zooms are plummeting since I paused submitting

    39 zooms so far this month against 24 for the same period last month (my best ever month for zooms {59}). So an increase for me, and CTR up to 1.50. Of course, it could all go belly up for the rest of the month so no chickens have been counted yet. Only 1 sale so far this month but the first fortnight is often slow for my images so not worrying yet.
  2. Plant ID help please

    Looking at the shape of the leaves and the way the flowers droop in the truss I'd say it's either Rhododendron williamsianum or Rh.orbiculare or a hybrid with one or both of those species blood in there. There are quite a few of these hybrids around and I can't be more specific from that photo.

  5. Plant Identification

    It's a Viola, Sally - but I can't tell you which one other than it's likely to be one of the seed strains grown as annuals.
  6. 5000 Milestone at last

    Congratulations from another recent 5000 passer. It's hard work maintaining variety and quality. Well done.
  7. Have you found any Alamy images in May 2018

    Thanks for that spot, Russell. Taken in my own garden. Fee won't pay for the plants I've lost to that menace and it's extended family but it's a start
  8. April up or down?

    22 sales for $438 gross - all direct. Volume good but prices could be better. One refund despite image being used in multiple places for company marketing. Alamy are aware (and will be reminded if no resale comes in). Zooms healthy at 59 for a CTR of 1.15. Average month overall but encouraging. Biggest gripe is the number of 45+ days uncleared invoices, both distributor and direct sales. Payment seems to take longer and longer.
  9. Customer search activity

    Same here from the other end of Devon
  10. distributor sales

    Staying in. The good sales outweigh the bad.
  11. Images sold in April (Max. 1 per day)

  12. More Plant Identification.

    Nope. Pieris.
  13. Plant Identification

    Ricinus communis, castor oil plant. Origin of the poison Ricin. Don't eat the seeds
  14. how common are refunds on sales?

    Only 4 during the whole of my Alamy tenure. 2 were obvious mistaken double billing, the other 2 a PU sale, followed by a refund and resale at a higher price, followed by another refund and resale at a still higher price. Less than 1% of my total sales affected.
