  1. I notice at the end of May (42% of the year) I wrote that I was at 63.5% of 2018's sales but 42% of 2018's income (gross). Now, 62.5% of the year, I'm at 78% of sales volume (poor June, July and only 1 small sale so far in August) and 51% of 2018's income (gross). First 10 sales (gross) starting in 2009 and counting forwards: $50.19 $48.30 $70.10 $61.12 $208.41 $29.44 $75.77 $216.17 $67.27 $162.41 Total $989.44 gross. $552.07 net (and as it happens my #11 was $500 of which I received $300) Most recent 10 (gross, going backwards) $14.12 $32.13 $4.84 $4.69 $19.99 $15.99 $12.50 $40.00 $18.38 $4.90 Total $167.54 gross $83.69 net, which is c15% of the net of my first ten sales. Hardly worth the shoe leather, really.
  2. In answer to the question in the title: "No, not one bit". Four of my last five months were poor, and I just had my first sale of this month pop in netting me $7.06. All of my Alamy images are de facto Alamy exclusive, though I've had to mark some as not exclusive due to e.g. statues taking up more the 1/3 of the image.
  3. Offhand I can remember a sale of about $50 to an American infringer (a pukka newspaper, AFAICS), and 22 x teeny totie value ones* of the same image to the Daily Fail. Far more they opted not to pursue, but these would have been difficult for anyone to pursue because of location. And that %^^&*$ infringing lawyer who wouldn't reply to them or to me, and took down in the end. *Much less than they'd have had to pay if they'd licensed them properly at the time. Made me furious. They normally take ages and you often have to prod them before they tell you they're not taking it further, but sometimes time can be of the essence when pursuing.
  4. According to our contract, Alamy is supposed to get first dibs with chasing up infringements - but in your case, they seem to have declined to take up that option.
  5. I've always found it random whether more of mine of the same subject are shown, or a set of related or apparently random (maybe badly keyworded/captioned, maybe the usual malgorithms) pics by other artists..or a set of mine above the keywords and those from others below them In the admittedly few times I've tried clicking on one of their images I never see one of mine reciprocated, but that is a very small sample. I just looked at one of my pics. It has no related pics, by me or anyone else yet I have a small series, and I've seen rival pics of other examples from the same series. So who knows? Further clicking shows few of my recent pics have similars on the page. Anyway, as noted in another thread, it seems that different people may see different search results, so it's possible (?) that different people might see different related/unrelated images by the same author/other authors, or no other pics at all.
  6. Thanks, Paulette. Odd that I can't find my own file there, given that I easily checked my keywords via IM. I realise it's an Austrian site, but Siena Duomo is Sieno Duomo, and there are a few pics there on a search for Siena Duomo.
  7. As in other thread, one by me and one by Paul Quayle on this page: https://www.srf.ch/kultur/kunst/staunen-in-siena-ein-boden-wird-zum-kunstevent I can't find Paul's pic from that page on Alamy, presumably he thought of keywords I didn't and vice versa. I don't see it on a reverse image search via FF either. At last: found it, it's EWC3DJ
  8. Is Mauritius Images an Alamy distributor? I just found pics by me and by Paul Quayle on this page, both credited Mauritius Images/Our Name/Alamy. https://www.srf.ch/kultur/kunst/staunen-in-siena-ein-boden-wird-zum-kunstevent Yet when I search Siena Duomo, neither of these pics are in Mauritius Images. https://www.mauritius-images.com/en/search?q=Siena duomo (Dotto Siena Cathedral) Anyone got any light to shed?
  9. Another poor month. 6 sales for $45 net, an average of $7.50. ( A PU was my second-highest sale of the month) At 7 months into the year (58.3%), I'm at 76.5% of last year's total sales, but only 51% of 2018's gross income.
  10. Tried disabling my anti-virus, and a different browser, but the installer still won't download. Never mind, I'm sure I'll survive without it.
  11. I have read that it can be a concern and you might have to keep tabs on them and contact them individually and personally. Apart from anything else, if the 'parent' agency has gone, how would one be credited with any sales?
  12. Could be, though I'm not seeing a message to that effect. Or it could be Firefox, I'll try another browser and report back (not right now, though)
