  1. 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....
  2. I had a response to my enquiry, I replied to the response - I am still awaiting a response to my reply to the response.
  3. Is there a difference between 'only available on' and 'exclusive to'? As a linguist I'd say no - maybe a legal expert knows better.
  4. In tried that, but the train I'm on will be be arriving in 20 min and it didn't look like was going to finish in time
  5. It's taking too long to add up, but there were 582 submissions, I usually upload 10 at a time unless it's a news story, so around 6000?
  6. Mine says "Exclusive Alamy" - maybe the wording across the pond is different (or they've changed it overnight)
  7. That is me paraphrasing - I don't believe in quoting private emails - though if Alamy want to come back with an official explanation......
  8. Expected response from Alamy - basically 'we are always trying new things'.
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. Ten trips cost me €12.70 and two pics of the tickets have got me back about £50. Good investment
  12. because until very recently nobody was interested in it
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Never met Duckukong but I've been using Malwarebytes for ages and can recommend it
  16. It's at the bottom of the 'attributes' tab - you may have to scroll down
  17. 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........
  18. 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
  19. Lottery ad on the back of a 1950s East German stamp book. Decent amount for a magazine sale. Certainly paid for the stamps
  20. It was awful yesterday for me - click on 57 bicycles, then pretend an ambulance was a bus before finally getting in.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
