  1. If its RM non-exclusive you can only have on sale elsewhere if its rights managed at the other agencies. You can not offer a RM non-exclusive as royalty free with another agency.
  2. Have you added keywords and a description? If not then they won't go on sale until you do.
  3. Because the proposed contract changes that Alamy are unilaterally imposing on July 1st which basically means that the photographer is liable for any comeback on image misuse by a customer who bought an image through Alamy that the contributor is unaware of because Alamy don't tell us who they sell but they want to skirt all responsibility. Sounds messy but thats basically what its about.
  4. Its because of the "for non-commercial use" in the PU licence so who ever buys an image probably sees that and assumes its OK.
  5. I bought it using a discount code and during their recent sale for use primarily with property work. I find it works well enough and the results are pleasing however its extremely memory hungry so you'd have to have a good PC/laptop with a good processor and a decent amount of RAM It has a pretty good set of tools for image sharpening and noise reduction and relighting scenes. For sky replacement I would recommend keeping a personal library of sky shots which Luminar will be able to use. I haven't used it much for stock photos but here's a
  6. And thats why the PU thing should be scrapped and sales based on image sizes (like other stock agencies) but Alamy seem unwilling to do anything about it.
  7. Not to mention blogs which appear to qualify as personal use ~ I've come across those from time to time
  8. Worked well enough at the Empire State agency their collection is still growing and still plenty of maroons crying because they got their "art" rejected and all for 10 cents (ยฃ0.075) sales ๐Ÿคฃ Alamy could happily do the same and there would be plenty of "artists" willing to clamber in to bed for kudos credits ๐Ÿ˜‘
  9. 13 sales $217 gross net $111.29 Most of them netted sub $5 an excercise in pointlessness
  10. Here you go https://discussion.alamy.com/topic/14386-contract-change-2021-official-thread/ To simplify Alamy think its a great idea to stop paying 50% royalties on exclusive content and cut it by 20% down to 40% So exclusive images will earn as little as none exclusive images as of July 1st
  11. I agree ~ something as important as this, to all contributors, yet its being hi-jacked to yak about volcanoes and camera technique Geez c'mon! ๐Ÿคจ
  12. Sorry but I'm not going to go further with this I'm looking for proper jobs right now ๐Ÿ˜†
  13. Its not my definition its a legal definition for the UK Other countries may have different legal definitions
  14. Agent An agent/agency, in legal terminology, is a person/entity who has been legally empowered to act on behalf of another person or an entity. An agent may be employed to represent a client in negotiations and other dealings with third parties. The agent may be given decision-making authority. Alamy is an agency and in contract law an agency would be joint and severally liable in any action taken by a third party irrespective of any weasel words they might try to put in a contract between themselves and a contributor. So if an artist sues a contributor
