  1. I notice that in some of your older travel and architectural images, you have used the "additional information" field for locations and descriptions. Remember that this field is not searchable. You need to put this important information in the captions, which are searchable.
  2. "Sloth swimming" might be challenging as well. I've read that they only came down from the trees once-a-week to do their business. Also, it's tough to imagine a sloth in a bathing suit. 🦥
  3. That's too bad but not a shocker. Guess you should have offered a better warranty. 🙃
  4. I've never had a PU sale refunded either. Guess I've been lucky. However, with six PU sales reported last month, I'm curious to see what happens.
  5. Interesting list. I'll have to keep my eyes open for Naked Mole Rats and Sarcastic Fringeheads. 😁
  6. I have, but the problem is that most of my PU sales are images that have been licensed in the past for other uses -- i.e. editorial and commercial -- so it's tough to discern what's what.
  7. What do you mean by "quite large"? How many pixels were they on the long side? Your pictures should be at least 3000 pixels on the long side (17 MB files uncompressed) for Alamy. If your camera is 6 MP or greater, then there shouldn't be a problem.
  8. For me, the best street photos tend to be candid. However, I'd say that there is all kinds of street photography. The main thing is to tell a story. No?
  9. I fear that you are correct. It's pretty easy to spot images that obviously don't lend themselves to personal use. I've got lots of examples as well. Unfortunately, though, there isn't much that we can do about it except try to track down illegal uses.
  10. Good question. I'd say that one is a candidate for your "suspicious-looking" file.
  11. Entertaining post, Edo. I've always loved street photography. However, I don't do as much of it as I used to for a number of reasons. With many places strengthening privacy laws, Liverpool might become one of the last bastions of traditional street photography. Someone zoomed this Vancouver image a few days ago. I guess it might qualify as a street photograph. Perhaps this gentleman is a stranger in a strange land as well.
  12. Glad to hear that things picked up. Something interesting that I noticed in July is that, with the exception of two recent images of flowers, all my sales were of older (and really old) dependable repeat-sellers. Actually, this has been a trend for the past couple of months.
  13. Average number of sales (14) but lowest gross revenue ($267) of any month this year. Six PU licenses set a new record for me. Most sales in the low $$ range with a couple of "unmentionables" thrown in for good measure plus one high $$. Zooms not so hot either. My revenue graph looks like a roller coaster, so this month should be better.
