  1. Unfortunately, not all of mine are exclusive - I have to find out which ones are. Some subjects I only send to Alamy, so they were easy to do by pseudo, but the rest will take some checking. I wouldn't want to be dishonest or inaccurate!
  2. 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.
  3. Ten trips cost me €12.70 and two pics of the tickets have got me back about £50. Good investment
  4. because until very recently nobody was interested in it
  5. and another just popped up. I've had two today that were sold and refunded earlier in the month - now sold again, for about the same amount.
  6. I've had six, getting me over a nice round milestone for the year - all different uses and presumably customers. One just popped up, the year still has a few hours left in it to deliver.
  7. Never met Duckukong but I've been using Malwarebytes for ages and can recommend it
  8. It's at the bottom of the 'attributes' tab - you may have to scroll down
  9. 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........
  10. 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. Thanks
  11. Lottery ad on the back of a 1950s East German stamp book. Decent amount for a magazine sale. Certainly paid for the stamps
  12. It was awful yesterday for me - click on 57 bicycles, then pretend an ambulance was a bus before finally getting in.
  13. Worst month for more than two years. Number of sales and money both well down. A few newspaper sales yesterday but it will need a VERY busy New Year's Eve to get the figures up to anywhere near normal.
  14. Also, almost every license I see has contradictory date info. They give a start and end date three months apart, then a 'duration' of five years. It's meaningless and less than useless. They need to sort this out.
  15. Anyone had one of these? Usage: Business use, One of each of the following uses: Personal use, presentation, internal communication, student project, reference for artist, personal website, personal social media, personal print or card, business website, small book (up to 1000 print run, not front cover), small magazine/newspaper (up to 1000 print run), a digital marketing campaign. Worldwide license. Excludes advertising. In perpetuity. ???????????????
  16. Will Alamy be including a way to mark live news uploads as exclusive? If not I will be rethinking the way I cover news.
  17. If this means foreign-language websites using computer software to translate keywords and captions DO NOT DO IT.
  18. I suspect it applies to everyone equally as the mistranslation are so dreadful and widespread that most searches will be affected!
