  1. Thanks for the details. Alamy’s reply said that Climate Visuals was an affiliate. Hence the confusion.
  2. I’ve sent an email querying this, it’s not acceptable.
  3. No, this image has never shown up in my sales. I’ll check it out. Thank you.
  4. Thank you, that makes sense now. Alamy didn’t mention Climate Visuals was one of their distributors in their reply. They just sent me the link to affiliates and said this company was an affiliate.
  5. https://climatevisuals.org/asset/1857/ The image used.
  6. Are you all aware of this? https://www.alamy.com/customer/help/affiliate-program.aspx One of my images appeared on a climate website, Alamy and I were credited but it never appeared in my sales. Apparently there is an agreement between Alamy and affiliates (of which the website concerned was one) that they can use whatever images they like without payment to the photographer. I’m not happy.
  7. Hi, Beautiful photos. Wildlife photography is my passion, but I've just had a quick look at the images I have sold and worked out wildlife accounts for only about 10% of sales. If you think about how often you might see an article in a magazine about red squirrels for example, compared with how often you see one about gardening, travel or DIY. My advice would be to submit your wildlife images, but if you want to increase your chance of sales in stock photography, widen the subject matter of your submissions. Also submit the your wildlife images that are a bit different, I sold a mistle t
  8. I need to be grateful that the profit was split 50/50 then, £2.37 each. Of course that will change soon!
  9. Has anyone else experienced this? 3 of my sales this month have presumably been for magazines. ‘Duration 3 months. Any placement inside or cover’. Same size 6mb. One sold for $15, and 2 for $4.75.
  10. Thank you, that’s really useful. I’ll look into this today.
  11. Thank you. My Dad died a few years ago, he told me a long time before he died that all his slides were coming my way. 1000's!! It's taking a long time to work through them.
  12. I have inherited many of my late Dad’s slides. Many are of family but some are of places that were taken in the 80’s and 90’s that might be of interest. If I scan them and edit them, am I allowed to upload onto Alamy even though I wasn’t the original photographer?
  13. Thank you for your comments. Somebody used the search term ‘red squirrels’ - I don’t know if they used quotes or not. It showed up in my ‘Alamy Measures’ and the images that appeared in the search were of grey squirrels. But thank you Chris, I had forgotten that with some of my older grey squirrel images I used the phrase ‘displace red squirrels’. My keywording has improved since then! On a positive note, I have had some good sales of grey squirrel images. My last one was for $***. Another appeared in the New Scientist. I now need to look at old images and the keywords I used, and do a
  14. Thanks for the reply. It doesn’t make sense though, so anyone looking for a red squirrel will get every single squirrel image come up. How frustrating for a potential buyer!
  15. Can anyone explain to me why a search brings up your images that don’t have the search term used in your keywords? For example, a search ‘red squirrel’ brings up photos of grey squirrels where the word ‘red’ has never been used in the keywords. It then affects the CTR. I’m sure we all do our best to keep the keywords relevant to the image so I wish this didn’t happen.
