  1. Thank you everybody for your answers. I've just had a look and in spite of the fact that this Novel option is optional, we cannot opt out at the moment. It says we can do it in.... April, so it looks like not much can be done and the best images from Alamy will continue to be given away for free, as paying 1.50 for something that should cost several times more is giving away for free. It is hard to understand truly how the company which has been selling images for good prices for decades, now starts following the pattern of going downhill with prices. How much can Alamy make when getting 50% o
  2. Hello, I do not come here too often but this time I got truly shocking price for my image and do not really know whom to ask to answer my question. My latest sale price is $ 1.25 and this is RM license, the previous one was $ 5.03 and still another one 4.99 but the last one is the worst. Does anybody know what that means and how is that possible? All sales are RM. Is Alamy now a microstock agency as those prices are microprices? I sent my question to support but surprise, surprise, there is no support anymore but automated answers. What is going on here?
  3. Yes, no, maybe. If you only have one source of income from your work then from a business point of view you could be in a sticky situation should circumstances with that one source change. Think of the dairy farmers in the UK who supply one big supermarket and where now the tail is wagging the dog. Also one source may only serve certain markets. I covered an event last night. If I was only to send the images to one of my agencies I am pretty sure that I wouldn't get the returns necessary to cover the time expended. By putting the images to different agencies which cover different markets I
  4. Not that long ago I was wondering how anyone can submit 1000 files. Today I have almost 3k. If I'll ever do it x10? Doubt it. I lost all my power and motivation to work when I see that my sales (or rather income) didn't change that much since I had 700 files only. Ps. You have beautiful images! Thank you Arleta for kind words, I like your images as well, I thought you had good sales. When I see the massive numbers of photos that some people have here it makes me stop breathing almost as I would like to be able to have that many and it is just impossible. I think that Alamy qu

  6. Ha ha, it makes me laugh as I have the same which is nothing, ha ha ha,it sounds so funny but it is not really funny when you are trying to make living on stock photos. It just makes me wonder how anybody is able to upload over 30 0000 images, how is that possible? Anyway, it's good that some photographers make money on Alamy, I got discouraged a long time ago and stopped uploading but now, trying to come back.
