  1. In my experience EyEem don't change your keywords but when submitting images keywords are suggested it's up to the individual to decide whether the keywords are appropriate or not. When an image is selected for their partner site then the key wording is changed and it's that part that is out of the control of the photographer. Unfortunately royalties have taken a massive dive this last year and I no longer prioritise this library for my work.
  2. From my experience talking to graphic designers for instance they go to thier usual stock library supplier and don't spend time looking around for cheaper alternatives for the same image. They seem to stay with one prefered library due to them having no knoledge of the existence of competing stock agencies therfore would not stumble upon images that are exclusive to one site. That said there are a lot of varibles and one size does not fit all. Andy
  3. Please dont think I am slating you on your sales ED but unfortunately after Alamy have taken their 60% commission that leaves $7.99 each £6.48 English pounds, in that their is a lot to be unhappy with. Most people quote sale prices however it's our share of the full sales price that makes the sale look unappealing. Keep up the good work. Andy

  5. Thanks for that spacecadet, tried all different ways and was unsure if the link would turn in to a picture but it didn't

  7. 11.20 am and only 8 UK submissions on the live news feed says it all really, if you dont have it you cant sell it !
  8. Not too sure what to think about this latest development in the Alamy restructuring process. My last news upload was in December with no sales from this submission, before this I submitted news content in November with two sales out of five images submitted these images were of weather related countryside content after all Alamy has always said the weather is always in the news, also these images were not sent from the field but several hours later when I had returned home, I always thought the best images and hottest news stories were pinged directly to news desks leaving searchable news content available to browse from the live news page and non newsworthy images were rejected (after all it's the news editors idea of what fits in with their needs that matter) if this is a case of individuals bypassing quality control by sending more stock related images through the news route then this is a different isuue that needs addressing in a more targeted way. Got a feeling diverse content may ultimatly end up missing from the news feed and maybe thats not a good idea. Andy
  9. Thanks everyone for replying, I've had plenty of phishing emails on other email addresses, but this one was different too specific to my work and with info that could only come from my stock library accounts. Andy.
  10. Hi, I was a little concerned to receive an email from a company calling themselves Team Imageclick today asking if I wanted to use them for Key wording and retouching services, they are based in India and the concerning part is they have my full name and an email address that I only use for Image stock libraries and do not share with any other companies. I was just wondering if any other member had received such an email.
