  1. Knocked back down to earth after some welcome TV sales with four penny distro sales to Czech, Serbian and Slovakian web buyers. One from my 'local':
  2. Database hasn't updated again, so another day's potential sales lost on new images. Start with the basics perhaps would be an idea. Happy to accept a huge bonus for putting forward that idea 🙂
  3. And again today for low $$$. Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Television (editorial) ; Print run: Unlimited transmissions ; Placement: Use within body of show ; Start: 15-October-2019 ; Duration: In perpetuity Additional Details: Licence covers all media worldwide and in perpetuity Hopefully these are separate licences and a credit isn't heading my way.
  4. Another sale of my fave royal, high $$ Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Television (editorial) ; Print run: Unlimited transmissions ; Placement: Use within body of show ; Start: 14-October-2019 ; Duration: In perpetuity Additional Details: World all media in perpetuity
  5. 'Attention to the Reflection (Urban)' sounds scarily like real photography so I nearly ran away to my safe places but I've noticed plenty of varying interpretations so here's mine:
  6. A few sales came through whilst away on holibobs (non-UK friends, it's not worth looking up as a worthwhile keyword) the largest of which was a mid $$ magazine use. Country: Worldwide ; Usage: iQ sale: Magazine, editorial print and digital use, up to DPS, repeat use within a single issue ; Industry Sector: Media, design & publishing ; Start: 07-October-2019 ; End: 07-October-2021
  7. I can't see that they'd differentiate between licenses. Published is published I'd have thought
  8. That's impressive, thank you for sharing. They've sent me a publication history list that shows around 80 images don't match, so I'm down to about 440 winners. I leave Alamy to claim on the licenses sold via them as I rarely find the publications in which they've been used, and it can only be into double figures, and yet they've returned a much larger payback. It has to be down to them being more recent.
  9. Not knowing any better I simply tore out pages from magazines as keepsakes and/or media applications, ranging from the mid-90s to date. Last year I took the decision to try to find the correct ISBN and ISSN data which was a huge project but I correctly claimed payback for over five hundred image uses, all direct. The amount I've received is well down on what I get nett from Alamy for far fewer images licensed via them. It could be down to the lower percentage for older images, but I have nothing else to compare it with. I've emailed DACS asking for a statement to help me understand.
  10. My third sale yesterday took my total Alamy sales to 666 \m/ (not this image, that would indeed by spooky!) A small sale today has taken me to 667, so my soul is safe.
  11. Hiya. Would you consider making known the quantity of images that delivers that figure please? Just roughly. I'm struggling to understand how it works having raised my hopes of a descent amount.
  12. That applies to all sales, either 60/40 or 50/50, so not really an issue. PU still returns a higher figure than a number of other licenses.
  13. Well that was a huge let down. I get more via Alamy for a fraction of the published images so I assume not all publishers are signed up to it? I'll wait to see a statement before enquiring about it.
  14. Still flying, but very low, low $ low Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Editorial website ; Start: 01-September-2019 ; End: 01-September-2024 ; Additional Details: Finland, Web, One month
  15. Getting fidgety now, like a kid on Christmas Eve. We go on holiday on Saturday so it'd be useful to have it by then.
