  1. Hmmm. As we don’t know how the system works difficult to say. My book cover use will get whatever the commission rate is at the time of billing I’m told even though it’s already been published. A live news use from 8 months ago that I have pestered them about for several months has been earmarked as needing to be billed this month so it qualifies for 50%. A query about a license that may be incorrect and probably incurs a higher license fee….in my view ought to be billed as 50% if the original license is incorrect. But if they just issue a new one…..
  2. After tiddlers yesterday comes a decent highish $$ sale for cheese. Probably one I won’t get again now it’s been marked editorial only.
  3. I really really wonder how much attention to pay to CTR. Mine has stubbornly stuck around 0.4 no matter what I do. I have healthy zooms, now around 60-70 a month. I have decent sales, too. When, occasionally, I use a search term to see how high up my images are, they are generally on the first or second page. So I tend to not worry about CTR any more.
  4. I saw that in a newspaper the other day but unfortunately cannot remember which one.
  5. Three tiddlers today (I presume CT) with one of them below. More importantly I just found a book front cover published on May 27th that hasn’t yet been reported. Surely it should have been by now? Have emailed Alamy to ask that they honour the current commission rate since it’s already been used.
  6. I’ve only had a cursory look so far at the rewording, which appears to simplify the language, nevertheless a thorough examination of the contract is a wake up call. I will be taking similar steps to others: deleting any images I think could cause problems, making all images with no model or property releases editorial only for now, making all exclusive images (most of my portfolio) non-exclusive before the new contract kicks in…but the problem still remains that Alamy is taking more than I get for any image sold and I am not comfortable with that. I am not bailing out but what I upload here wi
  7. That must be a new phenomenon. Never happened when I celebrated the end of my exams.
  8. Not if they are compostable which the ones I use are from Lavazza
  9. Two more sales today, one $$ and one $, making 5 sales since the start of the month. I’ve sold two of Fingal Edinburgh amongst them...not sure why.
  10. Use on msn is usually an (unfortunately legitimately) copied article from another newspaper so you need to find the original use.
  11. Not sure what you mean. If your images aren’t “in” LR, then you can simply import them from wherever you store them, then use the plugin to capture the Alamy data. It’s a bit fiddly at first until you have the photos in your catalogue matched with those on Alamy but after that there are huge benefits.
  12. Nice to get a $$ sale for a pear tree (marketing package).
  13. Second highest number of sales in the last year (50) and second highest revenue in the last year. Five $$$ with one being my highest sale ever at over $200 but that’s only because they were all live news. Some $$ stock and loads of tiddlers. Without live news it would be a different picture. And I am not embracing the prospect of only 40% for live news in the new contract. Edit: just had two $$ sales reported so hopefully a decent June too.
