  1. My zooms are plummeting since I paused submitting

    Doesn't the customer also control the number of views? John.

  3. Allan, I don't know why we persevered - but i'm glad I did. John.
  4. First sale in Sept 2008 with 266 images uploaded from Jan 2007 - so 19 months until my first sale!!! John.
  5. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    Thanks Gen. I've been averaging 14 sales a month over the last 12 months, so 7 in 1 day is great! If i don't sell anything I upload more - and if I do sell anything I upload more!!! John.
  6. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    7 sales dropped in yesterday, that equals my best ever single day's sales on Alamy. John.
  7. Shop Front pricing

    I think they mean 'that's the price for a photo of a shop front'. I can't imagine they've got a special price just for pics of shop fronts. John.
  8. An oversaturated subject but happy to have been chosen. Personnel use. John. Picture taken from on the Jacobite Express steam train passing over the Glenfinnan Viaduct on the West Highland Line, Scotland

  11. May Challenge TWILIGHT

    3 from me. The first one isn't the most glamorous of subjects, but I like the image, plus you can't take that photo again because, due to cutbacks, they've turned the lights out! John.

  12. Favourite images uploaded - May 2018

    A couple from my trip to Egypt in November. I'm still wading through my images - i've only got to day 2 so far!! John The Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha, or Alabaster Mosque, or Muhammad Ali Mosque, is situated in the Citadel of Cairo in Egypt, North Africa
  13. No Sales - Please help

    Steve, You have some good images, a bit microstocky, but varied and nice, bright and colourful. 2 months isn't long enough to judge. Sales can sometimes take a couple of months before they are reported. Upload another 1000 images and you should get regular sales. John.
  14. April up or down?

    Way down! A terrible month for me. 10 sales for $95 - the worst revenue since February 2015. Views and zooms way down too. I think i'm going to cry............ John.
