  1. All my photos are green. Sales are very low, almost nothing. Have no idea why and what to do next. Feel rather demotivated. (
  2. Moscow International Festival Times & Epochs 2017. Roman area. Moscow International Festival Times & Epochs 2017. Napoleon's Wars area. Moscow International Medieval Festival. David and Goliath.
  3. Hello everybody! I passed the threshold of 7000 photos. This is good. Sales are more then modest. This is bad. Not very interesting topics or region, I guess. But I will proceed with my futile work. )
  4. My sales are still poor this year. Less than 10 in total. Maybe my photos are not so attractive. Still continue to upload new batches.
  5. I have 70 images that passed QC, was keyworded and optimised and added to my total number of images that increased to 6283. It was done on Tuesday. But when I open my port, clicking, say, on the number of images to the left of this text, I see just all my port minus those 70 new images. They are not on sale in realily. (
  6. No update of measures for me, but got the mail that I passed QC. )
  7. Commercial use, as I understand it, is when the buyer earns money by using your photography, say, in advertisement. So the buyer can earn money by advertisement which shows some other company logos and trademarks, so it means, that the buyer earns money at the expense of that company which logo is shown in the photo. That's why photos for commercial use shall be free from any logos and trademarks. When you buy a picture for your personal use, you hang it on your wall and that's all. You don't earn money with that image. But still what if you sell the photo of a Coca-Cola bottle? For editorial purposes - no problem, but for personal use? Doesn't it mean that this is YOU who earn the money at the expense of the Coca Cola Company? Why did Alamy include personal use in Editorial only choice?
  8. ) Then correct descriptions and upload more. Or bring your own buyers, but not every people have an established buyer's base. Cannot see other ways. Maybe somebody tells more, but I doubt. )
  9. Captions + Keywords. Make all of your images green. ) Add location, category, power tags etc.
  10. Hi! Your portfolio is great. Your landscapes are unique. You are doing everything in a right way. Alamy is a slow seller. It is NOT a microstock as SS. Upload more images, more editorials. They say here on the forum somewhere that if you have 1000 photos on Alamy, you will sell ones in a month (in broad, broad average), 5000 - ones a week, 10000 - once a day. It depends of many factors including your location, where you shoot. British newspapers will buy some UK local images for the morning paper, rather than some far landscape or cityscape. Do not stop, upload more and have patience. ) Your photos are great for books, articles and calendars. So, go on. )
  11. One small sale in January, anothe one small a few days ago. Last year was more fruitful with much less images. (
