    That’s super, Sally! Congratulations! A wonderful sale!

    I’ve read “The Curious...” I wonder if I’d like reading some of his other books, too.


    (This week, I should have been on a small boat out of Oban, before heading over to Edinburgh. Drat!)

    What a shame for you. So many things cancelled, and the festivals in Edinburgh are unlikely to return to what they were like before.

    Thanks, Bryan! Nice the see that one used, and I have certainly seen hundreds of these butterflies this Spring/Summer.

    How can I explain that after 52 days it has not been reset and there have been no payments? Look at your job. I am behind my claim. Is this your support and 4 negative points.  




    see last $ 87 payment 52 days ago



    Click on the Account Balance tab and you’ll see which sales have cleared and which haven’t. The only crucial figure in your image is the 

    Current Cleared Balance $24 which is not yet above $50. Hopefully now your question has been answered several times you’ll be able to work out what’s going on. And it isn’t anything to do with stealing.

    Hi Sally,

    Are you happy with them? What's the average earnings per sold print?


    Also, do you mind sharing a link to your site there?

    Hi Alex,

    i don’t have my whole website set up for prints, though I could if I wanted to, I have done this when I have taken photos of a particular event, eg a vintage car rally when those participating might want a print. So you can’t really see how this works from my website at the moment.



    You can set up galleries to sell any kind of print eg greeting cards, photo gifts and straight prints. In the U.K. the printing company is One. Vision Imaging. You can set your own prices.

    Exactly the same here. No sales and only a couple zooms since mid Feb. I´m not uploading anymore.

    I don’t think that’s the answer if you want more sales. Perhaps upload more, change what you photograph, or try a different style. Or revisit tags.

    My results aren’t very comparative to others since I haven’t been here that long, but have exceeded revenue of 2018 already and on 80% of revenue compared to the whole of 2019 (66% of number of images).

    Hi, is there a way to automatically assign the first ten keywords to be the ten most important tags (blue star), since I put them in this order before uploading anyway. I hope there is a way to do it by one click instead of clicking on each of the first ten keywords manually? Thank you

    If you use Lightroom and the Alamy Lightroom plug-in, and keyword in Lightroom, you can define the tags and supertags in 
    Lightroom before uploading. 

  8. What Alamy says:


    Different versions of the same image

    Similar versions of the same image that are available on other licencing platforms can’t be marked as exclusive (i.e. B&W, different crop, or slight adjustments). However, images that are from the same shoot, but shot from a different angle or the model is posing differently, is considered a different image and can be marked as exclusive if that particular shot is not available elsewhere.

    Hi there, Alamy has a category Flowers, Plants and Gardens that is searchable for customers. However, this category doesn't exist when I'm adding the Optional information to my submitted images. Any idea why not? And which of the categories available should I add plant pictures to? Thanks in advance

    There is actually a Plants and Gardens category.

    No, I got through that hurdle already, but it is my first submitting after the first 3. Every stock company works a little differently and I'm used to having to put in captions and keywords BEFORE submitting for review, not after...

    The only reason QC will reject them is if there is a problem with quality. And then, unfortunately, if the one(s) randomly inspected fail, then they all fail. 

    if you use Lightroom and you’re just starting out with Alamy, I can highly recommend Alamy Lightroom Bridge plug-in.
