  1. AIM update notes - **Updated Nov 2018**

    Thats cool!!! Great work including the portfolio page. Is the mobile "fix" also taken into consideration? So we can keyword while being on the go? Thank you :).
  2. Share your contributor portfolios

    Well here you go: https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/651415/toysandmore.html
  3. Private use

    Trust me.... some people can have some special obsessions......
  4. So how is your 2018 going, eh?

    Coming back to shooting local. I think on Alamy this mainly works if you live in the United Kingdom and around. I am living in Poland and i could shoot my city and all the details until my fingers bleed. I dont think it will make a large effect. The Alamy 2017 numbers where showing something like sales coming 35 percent from UK. 17 percent from other European countries. This is a really small amount indicating that Polish buyers are elsewhere. How much percentage of those 17 percent could be Polish buyers.... maybe 1 percent or 2? It is not to discourage other contributors but it just seems like that. Mirco
  5. Alamy's 2017 Annual Accounts released

    You are totally right. But better is to compare the payouts made to contributors since this is the money that we see. I think Alamy had around 10 million paid to contributors. The micro agency you mention paid 150 million to contributors. Yes it is a large difference but still i think 10 million is a large amount. This micro agency is just the world number 1 thats all. Nobody should be scared away from numbers. Just do what works for you and i know that Alamy works very well for many. Mirco

    Easy and short one. Completed
  7. How long did it take you to make 1000 sales?

    Hi Andy, I cant yet answer to your question if you know what i mean but i cant resist to add that i am not surprised that you made it to 1000. You have amazingly processed photos with superb quality. You can directly see the care and effort in the photos. Love your port. Congratulations. Mirco
  8. Hello all, I see many contributors asking if we can use AIM on a mobile device. If it is opened it shows a "deformed" page. Maybe it is very obvious and discovered by most but there is for example in Google Chrome under settings an tick box called "Desktop Version". Just click on it and the AIM looks the way it looks as on any laptop/desktop. I am using Android myself so i am not sure how it looks in a Apple browser but i can imagine that similar function exists. Good luck. Mirco
  9. This may seem like a stupid question..

    I indeed mean this yellow wonderful drink. But good that my comment opened some secrets of you
  10. Keyword Images

    Hello Mike, I know exactly what you mean. I use android and i simply use the setting "Desktop Version". In google chrome you can tick a box and website changes to desktop format and everything looks normal. I am not sure where you can find that option in your apple browser but i guess it should also exist. Mirco
  11. This may seem like a stupid question..

    I always knew that Ed Rooney was a glass of bear.... i just never dared to ask.....
  12. 35k images on hard drive

    Your opinions already helps me a lot and opens up some thoughts. Thank you as always for your helpful attitude.
  13. 35k images on hard drive

    Thank you. I know what you mean. I am not talking about the green color. Those 9k are really not well tagged. I learned much from the past and i just know i can do it much better. They have no super tags for example or are "only" 8 keywords for example in many cases. Just hasty done. Thanks for your part. I assume you would go for the 35k ;).
  14. 35k images on hard drive

    Hello Folks , I am curious about your opinion and need please your help here. I have at the moment around 35k images offline and want to get them up on Alamy. In the meantime i have 9k online that are not optimal tagged. I know it can be done much better with aligning to Alamy needs. Would you first concentrate to "correct" those 9k to improve the CTR or should i more be fixed to get those 35K online to note loose potential sales? Thank you already for your opinion. Mirco
