  1. My position entirely Martin. A complete rethink. It's just so good to read all these views and to realise that so many are thinking along the same lines. We almost have unison!! Or a TRADE UNION?
  2. I'm a member of DACS, and you claim for usages (UK only), and you need to know the details. In my case, editorial: ISBN/ISSN nos., page nos. date of publication etc. etc. I never use images that I've got on a library. Alamy say they claim on DACS if you've opted in, but it's a pittance.

I've always felt that I had a small personal connection with Alamy because they are physically based just a couple of miles down the road from my origins. I was even slightly proud of that. I knew several of the early managers. Now I just feel betrayed. And I live 130 miles away so I can't go round and blow it up!

Several years ago I attended a lecture where former Alamy CEO James.... gave an example of a pic. that had made a big sale. £15,000 for a terrible shot of an extremely obscure subject. It made his point very effectively, that you can never tell! With only a very small portfoli
  6. Hello all, Just joining the forum after a return to uploading recently. I've had a small number of pictures on Alamy for 10 years or so but now wish to increase that so will be asking a lot of questions! First thing I need to learn is how to use this forum, I'm sure the idea of mutual support is the way to go.
