  1. Thanks for the competition title Wim, delighted to make the cut given the number of excellent entries! Kumar
  2. Fairly stable figures for monthly sales/income for Covid-ridden 2020. 56 licences for $1224 gross. Only 1 in the low $$$ bracket. If December continues in the same vein I am heading for approx. 2014 final sale numbers, and 2012 final income amounts Kumar
  3. Sold an Image on Saturday and one on Sunday - probably the first time that has happened Kumar
  4. Have been in newspaper scheme for a while, and at the end of this month there has been a drop in my views and zooms. Losdemas must have nicked them! 🙃 Kumar
  5. Ed - I also did B&W darkroom stuff for about 10-15 years prior to digital - had a (very) brief fling with colour darkroom work but was not worth the hassle Kumar
  6. I quite enjoy all aspects of the image production as they involve different skills, but the part that takes me longest is the Image captioning and tagging. I also have a lot more of this to do - several hundred images which have passed QC but not tagged yet.... Kumar
  7. Hi Patrick, I tend to agree with you - seems the only thing in the last couple of years that changes image positions is new images being added; and there perhaps may be changes in position when an image has been purchased, if the next search uses the same keywords again (ie an image purchased moves up in search position if the same search words/phrase is used again) Kumar
  8. Going back to Ian's question 631 sales so far in 2020 2 to the United States; an advertising sale in June for my highest fee ever, and a reasonable $$ sale for TV use in November. Thats that for the USA (and I do have about 2000+ images taken in the USA) Kumar
  9. Views, Zooms and sales all down by a similar proportion, to about 66% normal. CTR therefore approximating to normal; - but mainly a travel-biased portfolio. Kumar
  10. An image I tagged 2 days ago is now on for sale, if thats of any help Kumar
  11. Thank you Elisabeth, I think that would be much appreciated! BW Kumar
  12. NHS Hospital food, sold for very low $$, presentation use. Kumar
  13. Great image, Roy! Got yourself a recurrent seller there I am sure. Kumar
  14. Congrats Wim on your win! I guess photogs in the Netherlands had an advantage! 😉 Here are my three: 1. Photographers on the beach at sunset, Laig Bay, Isle of Eigg, Scotland 2. A buddhist monk taking a photo on his phone; U-Bein bridge, Mandalay, Myanmar 3. A family taking a selfie at a Father Christmas race, Wichester, UK Kumar
  15. Thanks Ricky but there are many that achieve better results than I do but don't necessarily post on the forum! I was just lucky to start early with Alamy, have a large number of images and a reasonable rank. Kumar
  16. I agree no measures update today, Monday 9th November but I had a sale drop in yesterday so I think sales are working OK kumar
  17. I also have tended to include the plural when keywording a single thing in an image because as said, searchers may well use the plural when wanting a single and visa versa. If an image has just one person in it, for example, cooking, I would still include the keywords person and people, but maybe also One and "1". It may sometimes reduce your ranking over a period of time, but I think this is a minor loss compared with the m=number of extra views and possible sales. Also, a searcher may think he just wants a picture of a cat, but may be persuaded by a picture with mor
  18. This would appear to be very unfair to the rest of us contributors. What is Alamy's comment on this? I certainly would like some of my best sellers to appear many times in the search engine too!! Kumar
  19. Thanks AlbertSnapper - zoomed a couple of dys before. Cheers Kumar
