  1. Sorry, this one is just too soft and mottled. Cool shot, but not for here. Heed Betty's advice about not falling in love with an image that ultimately won't work. Another waste of time would be setting up an Alamy account to just try to sell one or two images. This is a long game where numbers count. Look up forum threads about "how long to first sale" to see how many hundreds or thousands of images you need to expect sales.
  2. Maybe their biggest problem with your images was that they could actually tell whether there were cars, buses, lights, crosswalks, etc., eliminating all their perverse fun.
  3. On these kinds of questions, I think we have to remember that the projected-light image on a monitor and the reflected-light image from a print are simply different things.
  4. So, are they still updating Measures? My zooms graph is still at zero for this month--but I have a number of zooms that continued (& dwindled) from last month.
  5. Yeah, I was trying to straighten something out with another company, and, after finally getting a live person (and then a supervisor), still didn't make much headway. The other person's accent and scripted way of talking made me ask where they were located, and they said the Philippines. Outsourcing sometimes doesn't work well (except for the front office).
  6. Shooting is the fun part. Most everything else is work. OK, there is the occasional enjoyable "Aha" moment while researching for keywords. Unless it takes a long time, like trying to figure out exactly where I was while wandering around the Old City in Jerusalem.
  7. Yes, I also had a few days of 0 zooms, very strange. But a couple of decent sales this week, and finally a couple of zooms. One of the sales was a distributor sale, but decent nonetheless. To Canada (!?)
  8. I sent a similar email. Didn't work for me--they told me how to do it myself.
  9. I don't think we can assume anything here, but I figure that the other printable items are also prints--just not on the various "art print" media. I think it's also significant that items purchased on FAA are essentially one-offs for personal use (there are some weeds one could get into here, but I think it would amount to over-analyzing).
  10. number of sales down 6% gross revenue up 13% average gross per sale $61
  11. 25 submissions with 525 images (none in January, November or December). Three of them sold in 2018.
  12. Yeah, as I told Alamy, I've never been opted into licensing on F** because F** had no idea what they were doing with licensing.
  13. Presents under the tree, lights everywhere, all ready for the kids, grandkids, siblings, in-laws, outlaws, etc tomorrow. Cheers to all!
  14. Yeah, my POD income has varied from 18% to 120% of my Alamy income (not in that order). I explained all this in an email to contributors@. I'm glad the subject has come up, because I've been neglecting the POD site. No more. The Abingdon bot is an old one--I see it in my visitors back to 2010.
  15. My average commission on that site over the last two years is $54 per sale. I think I'll just keep my POD sales there, thanks.
  16. Been too busy tonight adding more images to a POD site Taking action my way.
  17. Not often the case that there's only one here. Wiki says there are 16 Durhams in the US. We even have at least two Hells (not a political comment).
  18. I don't do BHZ anymore, but my test searches have about the same results
  19. In my account here in the US on the 6th. They use a US bank to make ACH payments.
  20. Same here (well, my download speed is "only" in the 80's)
