  1. Not yet perhaps , But supposing google charged a small fee to an agency , a group of photographers could set up an online e commerce agency and display its images on worldwide google with the copyright link. The client can then buy an image from the small agency charging just a small commission to its own photographers, There would be no more selling people , very low costs and 100% of the fee which each photographer could set. No more paying 80% to big G or even 50% to Alamy. It is getting your images in front of clients that is the thing that an individual photographer cannot easily do.. Google could do it for you ?? who knows ??
  2. Why am I getting sales for $2.99cents ? I have not signed up to novel use or anything. I know bulk discounts exist but these prices are just stupid.
  3. just switched off all my videos on SS . Hope many others do the same, It must be breech of the contract terms which are implied when you start to upload content. You should not by law be able to vary those terms by giving 3 days notice . USA law ????
  4. Why are you selling 10 years rights for 49$? to a travel company who would be quite happy with 2 years rights.

    IT really is about time you allowed some selected contributors to upload video.
  6. What percentage of sales are RM ? RF? Does it really make any difference anymore what your choice of submission is relating to your future earnings?
  7. It would be brave of Alamy to try promoting RM but they could give it try as there is no competition to speak of except specialist agencies.
  8. Alamy are aware of an IT fault and are correcting it . Thanks to all.
  9. They have not been showing the RM images on the website for ages unless you click lots of buttons. RM contributors sales have plummeted,
  10. How do I download my data, I cannot see how to select my images
  11. Well lots of replies here.! This collection should be removed. Any new contributions should not go online unless they been opened in the image manager. Agencies would not then be able to upload thousands of images by just sending them in with an XLS spreadsheet of unchecked keywords.
  12. Image Image ID: 2A4APF6. This contributor has no idea how to keyword.
  13. How much server space is needed for all these images? , probably 90% never sell. I think the business model will collapse if no restraints are put in,
  14. Alamy is diluting its revenue every day as more and more "photographers" submit images.It must cost a fortune to host all of those images on massive servers. Those who started with Alamy years ago have little enthusiasm to shoot more images as they are sold for stupid prices. There used to be so many good agencies ... now just a few,
