  1. Great advice from all, keep it coming. My plan then, is to delete duplicate images first. Next should deleting irrelevant keywords be my aim OR improving titles/captions? both will be my aim together with improving keywords but there’s plenty to take up my free time in the first step!
  2. Great feedback, something I know nothing about is the value of ranking. Does Alamy have an article about it?
  3. I’ve been an Alamy member for a number of years. During that time I’ve added additional services (shutterstock, istock etc.) but have, this month, deleted ALL other accounts as I’m fed up with receiving pennies for a photo when Alamy gives me pounds. I’ve made all my images exclusive and am now looking to keyword all my old photos (from when Alamy only used 5 keywords) and add to my portfolio.

  5. I'm after a little advice. I'm definitely a novice on Alamy, a member for a little under a year, 400+ photos on and 3 sales. I shoot with a 35mm, 23mm and 16mm APS prime (50mm-24mm in 35mm format I think) I'm off to Barcelona, Spain between Christmas and New Year. I'd like any suggestions of the image content that would add to a shot's success on Alamy stock. Matt.
