  1. Is there somewhere that explains in more details the text in the 'Details' box for sold images? I have had my first sale and the text reads: Usage: iQ sale: Ad and design. Marketing Package Use. Internal and external marketing communications. Excludes advertising. Repeat use within the terms of the license In this example what does iQ stand for? I'm assuming there will be other initialisms for other types of sales (e.g. PU for Personal Use), so are they written somewhere? Thanks
  2. Hi Anna, yes, it should be. I have submitted photos using Samsung S7 and all have been accepted. It will depend on the actual photo (lighting, sharpness, focus, etc) for it to fail. Regards Victor
  3. Thanks Jill. Irrelevant tags bring down your ctr, it's this because you'd have more views but no zooms?
  4. Thanks, so just so I understand it right, in the example above if we take the second row, does that meant that: They searched for 'sun studio Memphis', looked at 100 images and zoomed twice. Out of those 2 were your images and one of the zooms was for one of your images?
  5. From your experience, how many pages do you think buyers flip through before they buy an image? Do they ever go past the first 2 or 3 pages for topics that have a few thousand images? In other words, how do I bring my images from, say, page 12 to the first few pages? I'm guessing there is no simple answer and maybe some might not want to give their 'secrets' away? Any help is much appreciated, I'm yet to make any sales here (I realise I only have a small number of images at the moment which probably doesn't help.) Thanks
  6. Thanks for taking the time to have a look. I'll search for the horse breed. Good tip about black and white.
  7. Hi I'm new to Alamy and haven't made any sales yet, I've only recently started uploading. I believe I understand what I would need to do to increase my chances of getting sales through here, but I wonder if you guys could have a look at my current portfolio to see if I'm going in the right direction in terms of tagging, captioning, etc? So far the part I struggle with the most when uploading is choosing the relevant categories, as they're very limited in numbers. Any thoughts? Thanks
  8. Hi, I'm new to Alamy and haven't made any sales yet () so I have no idea how successful my tagging is, but one thing I found helps is: First I tag with as many words/phrases I can think of using similar ideas as the ones already mentioned. Then I look at other similar images online (on alamy and other stock sites) and see if there are any 'good' tags I missed Finally, depending on the subject, I also search on Wikipedia/other relevant site to see if there are key words that I may not have thought of. Hope this helps. Thanks
