    The person concerned was actually Mary Berry - which should have been (if done properly) translated as Maria Beere. But Berry was not translated. :rolleyes:

    It's very hit and miss. Sometimes they are translated, sometimes not. I can't work out why

    Any idea why Mhairi becomes Nicole?

  2. I've found a new game!

    James Cleverly = James geschickt

    Ed Balls = Ed-kugeln

    Peter Whittle = Peter schnitzen

    Mark Durkan = Kennzeichnen Sie Durkan MP

    Bob Hope = Bob hoffe

    Tim Vine = Tim Weinstock / Tim Rebe (just wrong)

    Thomas More = Thomas Mehr


    weirdest? - 

    Mhairi Black = Nicole Schwartz ????


    and, best of all....

    Mark Reckless = Marken Sie rucksichtsloss !

    Spring 2019, RSPB Magazine, p28, tourist photographing duck in Trafalgar Sq, P4TNK4, PjrTravel [Alamy credit only]


    Thanks so much for reporting that. I was very pleased to see the sale and wondered where it had ended up.

    It doesn't get better than RSPB for a bird photo.

    I'd gone to Westminster to get some hard-hitting political news pics and ended up with....

    Thanks Mark all sorted now.


    As for the discussion about "only available on Alamy", and "exclusive to alamy"


    Just to make it clear I see AIM - "Optional" - "Only available on Alamy", and AIM - "Attributes" - scroll down - "Exclusive to Alamy".





    Is there a difference between 'only available on' and 'exclusive to'? As a linguist I'd say no - maybe a legal expert knows better.

    Maybe I'm blind, but I can not find any "Exclusive to Alamy" in AIM, All I see is "Only Available on Alamy"

    under the Optional tab?



    Mine says "Exclusive Alamy" - maybe the wording across the pond is different (or they've changed it overnight)

  7. December - very disappointing.

    2018 - best year ever on Alamy.

    My previous best year was 2012 (when I had exactly 1/3 of the images on file I do now) before the commission changed. It has taken this long to beat that total.

    However, total income is up, number of sales is up by over 100 on last year and the number of pics per sale (sales per pic if you prefer) has improved.

    Average fee has dropped marginally but did not continue the cliff-edge fall I've seen over the previous five or six years.

    So, with one very obvious exception, 2019 looks potentially promissing.

    Three more months to get 30,000 images checked and exclusivitised.

    I am level pegging with the number of Alamy images licensed last year.  So just one more sale on the 31st and I will still have an increasing sales graph.  Revenue similar too.  So fingers crossed.



    Yes, this year is up on last year. Despite one disappointing month (this one) I am just five sales short of a big round number. I had one today (Sunday!) so fingers crossed for a last minute rush tomorrow........

  9. When in Image Manager, one of the filters is 'exclusive to Alamy'.

    Given the new financial relevance of exclusivity, could we also have a 'NOT exclusive to Alamy' filter to see the only the other ones?

    This would be very useful for checking on images we've missed while trying to exclusivitise our portfolios.
