  1. I can’t comment on the key kernel of this as I am relatively new to stock, but it seems to me that Alamy has been doing much better of late get invoices cleared.
  2. Totally agree. I don’t bother with the weather shots as much as I used to unless I happen to be somewhere for another reason.
  3. Ditto plus a couple of decent print sales. This one is getting to be one of my best sellers.
  4. If it was used within a 2 day period of you uploading it, it qualifies as Live News, but if it was used after this period it is a stock sale. If the former, you have to wait 4 months before reporting it to Alamy (assuming it hasn't been reported by The Mirror before then), and if the latter, then the wait is 3 months. Don't expect a big sale, though, whichever it is.
  5. No I can see the majority of it. One of mine, one of Iain Masterton’s, Steven Scott Taylor, Craig Brown and Gerard Ferry.
  6. A very good sale for one of my Dad’s archive taken in the 1960s. $$$ Presumably this license means that it only lasts for 3 months! Country: New York ; Usage: Indoor display ; Media: Shop/restaurant decoration ; Industry Sector: OTHER - Hospitality ; Print run: 1 ; Start: 21-December-2019 ; End: 21-March-2020
  7. A nice $89 editorial use, though it pretty much sounds like a RF licence for a RM image. Country: Worldwide ; Usage: iQ sale: Single company - multiple use editorial only ; Industry Sector: Education ; Start: 11-December-2019 ; Duration: Unlimited
  8. Or set up a keyword hierarchy in Lightroom. There is also a plugin for keywords and you get 30 free credits if you use Alamy Lightroom Bridge. Its here https://www.lightroom-keywords.com/ I haven't used it except once just to test it so cannot vouch for it. I have spent a long time creating and revising a hierarchy. It's worth knowing the basics of how this works before you start doing it, but it is a definite time saver in the long run.
  9. It’s on the Copytrack website https://www.copytrack.com/questions-and-answers/
  10. There is no charge for using Copytrack. I had this problem as I rarely sell images directly. There are two options to calculate the possible fee and if you do not sell directly and therefore cannot prove value of past direct sales, then simply choose the mfm rather than the manual fee calculation.
  11. Thank you indeed. It was actually on open grassy ground on the top of Lamb Island out in the Firth of Forth. It seemed an unlikely place for fungi.
  12. Nice to start the month with a sale, thing only PU. Somewhat marred by also having a refund (I think accidentally invoiced twice) and another refunded but invoiced again for a few cents less.
  13. Pleased to report I am now on 5 stars too. All images uploaded over the weekend still in QC though.
  14. 28 for $895, but reduce by one and $50 as stats report refunds which is a bit annoying,
  15. From some of the stunning food images on Alamy, I think food photography involves a particular set of skills, which I have not mastered. My husband is a fantastic cook and I cannot resist photographing him cooking or the food he produces, but I don’t think I have sold any food pictures yet. A few examples
  16. Except if you use ftp to upload, of course. You can continue to edit greyed out ‘pending deletion’ images if you use Alamy Lightroom Bridge, which is very useful.
  17. I don’t think this added benefit to contributors has been well managed. No announcement or indication of the criteria for Alamy. Surely something as momentous as this deserves an announcement? The rest of us still with 3 stars and a good track record will just have to be patient. ”It’s a staggered roll out, we want to make sure the system works before releasing to everyone eligible. If you’ve got a good QC record just continue to do what you’re doing and your rating will be increased shortly.”
  18. More help with fungi. I think these may be wood blewit. Can anyone confirmed suggest alternative please? Thanks
  19. I asked Alamy. Here is the reply. Note the use of the word “may”. I have had 1,307 submissions since end of February 2017, though admittedly some of those are news, especially in the last year. Just did a quick count since January 2019 and I made 170 photo submissions versus 207 news submissions. Maybe that’s my problem. “QC time is based on your QC history, the more frequently you pass QC the less time you have to wait. If you keep passing QC then your QC rank may increase to 5 stars.“
  20. It would be nice if Alamy told us about this and why it is happening. I upload almost daily and always pass. I did have a fail a few months after I started nearly three years ago while I was still getting used to things. Maybe that’s against me.
