  1. +1 always check cable as first priority
  2. I'm with you now 😂 yeah I meant the same thing, still for the OP above the 1 per thousand, so with +4000 he should be getting 4 sales over month, like yourself Thanks Chris
  3. Hi Mark Either I need a new calculator, or you do? with 67 sales per year, my calculator says that's 5.58 sales per month, not 1.4 per month, so it is above the 1 sale per thousand per month, or did you then divide 5.58 by 4 (for 4000) also? Whatever, it's more than the OP is getting and so therefore maybe it is the keywording? Thanks Chris
  4. I've also found one being used for a different marketing use, like the PU issue, this is easily open to abuse, Alamy need to ensure the files are small.
  5. If you have the reg, googling it often leads to the answer!
  6. Ha ha, exactly, I've just had my highest ever at the end of Feb $187.44 but like my last reasonable sale a $150 museum sale, I'm not counting any chickens, especially as my other sale for feb was below a five spot in the same currency, no doubt I can count on that, I don't recall ever having a small sale refunded Chris
  7. I think the 1 in 1000 is a general rule of thumb, I've been getting 2 per month since my images went over 2,000, at the end of 2016, but i've read on here that uploading regularly also helps, which I haven't done a lot of lately myself, as my laptop became too slow and my freelance work became busy.
  8. Yeah extremely annoying, last year I had my biggest licence for a couple of years, $144, in December, refunded 5 days later, then sold again for $38.42 the same day as the refund, then the following month (January) again for a few cents more at $38.98! This one was credited a month later in Feb, all exactly the same sale conditions. I've found this seems to happen with large sales, I've got no idea why?
  9. Cheers, I missed that bit, but we still need to see the detail, it's a step back in the right direction, but prices need to increase and maybe not let "Exclusive" images available for cheap fees Chris
  10. Interesting and a quick turn around, which as some have suggested may have been the plan, but of course it may not. At least James can now say, you can't find these images anywhere else, so the customer can pay a premium, or that would be good if it was the case? Let's hope it is. Even though 2/3rd's mine are exclusive to Alamy in the way I've ticked the button, we need a clarification as to what this actually means, are we handing them over and we can't use them on our own websites for example? Also, it would be very handy if, seeing as we can see the images we have ticked the "exclusive image" button on, via the Attributes button in AIM, if there was also another Attributes box that shows, images that aren't exclusive. This would really help James! Overall though, considering the company is still growing, I'd have preferred, the new 40% to Photographers, to be for new uploads from February, that aren't exclusive and not taking 20% off my non-exclusive image images that I have uploaded already, especially at the continued overall lowering of prices in general. Thanks Chris
  11. Right Alamy I have double checked, on 15th October, titled Changes to your contributor contract, this being the e-mail regarding changed to the contract which came via this Alamy e-mail;- Alamy [contributors@alamy-updates.com] which I didn't check the full info, Then on 1st November the "Keep up to date with our latest contributor blogs" e-mail, same sender. Again I didn't bother checking the content, Then on 22nd November the "Curate and share your Alamy image collection", which I did look at and replied to you via twitter, you liked my link, & I put it up on here, with other contributors. The other Alamy e-mails I have received are replies to the Forum which come via Alamy [noreply@invisioncloudcommunity.com] I haven't unsubscribed, as although I'm not a main contributor, I do like to check on what is happening with Alamy. Therefore what date did James e-mail go out to everyone? The one in October I only read the changes link and the contract still says 50%? Thanks Chris
  12. No problem! Not sure how it's done that, was it via your phone? I know whenever I try that it does very strange things Chris
  13.

  14. That#s weird. I don't know why that says Chris C said??? I didn't say that, I've never downsampled the size of my images ever, I said Alamy always states what the problem is
