  1. Two low $$$ book covers (one actually published last September!), plus an inside book and two presentations, low $$.
  2. Stumbled across one of mine adorning a chunky A4-size hardback book cover: https://murdochbooks.com.au/browse/books/general-books/history/Royal-Air-Force-The-Official-Story-James-Holland-9781787394230 Chased it up with Alamy, who have now extracted the licence payment ($$$), 10 months after publication. !
  3. I don't: most of mine are unique artworks and magazines and books use them because there are no alternatives available. Yet Alamy still pops them out regularly for low $$ and extremely rarely $$$ - and increasingly, it seems, $ for editorial (including news) websites, of which I get diddly-squat. I don't think they understand their value.
  4. On a mobile screen? On my phone it displays just the middle of the image, instead of re-rendering the whole scene (which is what I mean by optimising).
  5. It's an embarrassment. On a desktop monitor, the (low quality/overstretched) cover picture and the headings are FAR too big, shoving the content way down screen - and, along with it, the Search box for your images. Oh but, the general Alamy search box is right there at the top. Sorry I know that's good for everyone else but is precisely what I do NOT want, obviously, if I am trying to link to my pictures, and is confusing as anything for customers. On a mobile screen all this is true but is even worse. There seems to be no thought about optimising the cover picture, so only a random fragment o
  6. Very pleased to see a rare, full Photograph: Gary Eason/Alamy Stock Photo credit on The Guardian "Plantwatch" yesterday, even if they did chop my landscape art in half to show just the algae in the river!
  7. Cheers. It was a couple of weeks' work at least - mainly researching and remaking the bridge as it was 50 years ago.
  8. No harm done. I'll probably delete the original myself. Just felt like letting off steam. I've had plenty of higher figures too, but it seems weird that Alamy would sell anything for so little.
  9. Yay, three so far, all for different outlets. I'm especially pleased to see people legitimately licensing images for presentations.
  10. Surprisingly good for me. 11 sales out of a total of 375 images on here, grossing $650. Skewed no doubt by no fewer than 9 being bought for a single book, including the cover! I'd love to know what it is ...
  11. In my experience magazines simply lie. Or let's be charitable, the editor *means* to do one thing and that is what they pay for, e.g half page. But then oh my goodness me whoops what a slip-up, the pesky art editor/designer/office scapegoat decided to change it at the last minute and it came out as a double-page spread - twice, once on the contents page. My point? Very often we have no idea because we don't see where it goes (not least because we aren't told where it goes). My question is, with Rights Managed, how much does Alamy actively check? GE
