  1. That's a great shot Colb. Well deserved and good for you to get a decent amount.
  2. A mere $1.21 for NU Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity. What an insult and a joke! Sorry but no idea how to post images here rather than screen capture and saving to Jpeg. https://www.alamy.com/image-details-popup.asp?Imageid=FD875032-A65C-4975-BBCF-C99AC626CD26
  3. To be fair I have had some single micro sales much greater than this.
  4. That's a very poor return. Hardly seems worthwhile submitting. Years ago that kind of editorial sale would have netted a three or four figure sum.
  5. I have a 2 million national newspaper editorial sale for just $9.92 Someone please tell me this is a mistake ?
  6. With all respect to the posts above (especially Betty) it is harder for some more than others to have a natural positivity when we are all so differently made. I just think merely staying positive in the face of circumstances beyond our control is deluding ourselves. Some days I feel good and others so low it takes a great effort to just get up in the morning. That's the way it is and I can't change it. having a stroke 4 years ago (fortunately only minor) bought me down to reality to try and make the most of life. My CTR is showing a pathetic 0.09 which is the lowest ever month so I can't see any sales this month at this rate.
  7. Well I am sorry you feel like that and I also apologise for not thanking you which was a genuine oversight but still a poor show on my account. Yes, I do tend to veer on the negative side of things but always try and count my blessings which is work in progress. I just get very despondent when sales here dry up when I am adding new images.
  8. Damaging ? I don't understand what you mean. Are you suggesting that I don't post my concerns on a thread about declining sales ? I am sure there are other threads you can visit to read about good sales. I can only go on my experience. I have had some good sales here in the past, and to be fair have reported them.
  9. Not just me then. Its definitely declining despite the suggestions of not having the right kind or enough images. Other sites are consistently selling for me ( as well as expanding in contributors) , some micro for more money on individual sales than here. I have also made more effort to add more eclectic, editorial images here but to no avail.
  10. I used to get MORE sales here with a lot LESS images so that theory is shot down somewhat.
  11. Terrible. Just terrible. No rewards for my exclusive images here. I have no option than to sell them at other agencies as it's hopeless here, just hopeless and getting worse.
  12. For me, the more images I build - the less sales, and when they do come the prices are now tiny compared to what they used to be. I hope Alamy isn't dying but from my experience sales are getting less and less for less and less. No incentive to keep exclusive images here much longer.
  13. I find the payment stats very confusing. You need a degree in economics and mathematics to begin to understand them. Nothing is straightforward anymore.
  14. I'm very sorry to hear that Betty. And yes you are right, i the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter.
  15. No. I am comparing to my earlier trends when I had more sales and views with a lot less images.
  16. Diabolical. Not a single sale and almost halfway through the month. Seems adding more and more images has the opposite effect.
  17. 4 sales that amount to a paltry £21. Depressing!
  18. I have had 4 sales this month which is good in numbers for the size of my port but pretty pathetic prices, the highest being just under $8. Now can someone remind me again why Alamy is better than selling on microstock, and why I should keep exclusive images here and not make them available at other sites ? It's a race to the bottom.
  19. I would have thought that the whole batch would be looked at otherwise what is the point of QC ?
  20. So why on a number of occasions when I have accidently submitted the same file twice (usually due to the painfully slow and uncertain upload engine) have they both passed QC ? Obviously its automated.
  21. Absolutely dead. Nothing. Rubbish returns for the effort. Looks like May is even more depressing than April.
  22. I had a response from support: The sales from January are mainly distribution sales and these do take longer to clear because of the number of people involved in the process. If you haven’t seen the payment clear we haven’t given up or forgotten about it, our Credit control team are constantly chasing invoices and we’ll update your account once we’ve collected payment.
  23. The Ricoh GR has no anti-aliasing filter and the prime lens is tack sharp so images are excellent quality. Its a keeper, if only for personal arty documentary work. To be fair most images I have submitted from it have passed here. It enables you to get more people shots for editorial. Something my port lacks.
