  1. 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 bit of deleting.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Like some of you, I got paid my monthly fee today, when I converted the amount owed in dollars to pound Stirling, it should have been £10 more than I received. Is there a reason for this?
  5. I googled my name and the word photo which brought up my photos in the Sunday Times, the New Scientist and the Guardian. It doesn’t always work, I’ve had other sales saying they are for magazines and I have no idea where they’ve appeared.
  6. 5 sales recorded, also an image seen in the Guardian not shown as a sale yet (which will be worth peanuts if my other UK press sales are anything to go by). Total $122. A lot more zooms than normal. Last year my first sale was in March.
  7. I know I should be grateful for sales. I think my Guardian image was a website only one so I won’t go on a spending spree. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/feb/23/libraries-play-crucial-role-in-communities
  8. I thought I was doing well in the last few weeks. I’ve had an image in the New Scientist, another in the Sunday Times and one in the Guardian. The fees are coming through this week. After commission, £12 for the New Scientist, £3 for the Sunday Times and I’m still waiting for the Guardian fee. What are others experiences? I wish Alamy would have a minimum realistic charge for their images.
  9. Stefano - I got the exact wording in an email sent to me. AA can download high res pics before committing etc. It was Alamy who told me their accounts dept are chasing it up. But since then there has been no updates, and Alamy won’t tell me the date my image was downloaded. There are 10 Alamy contributors who have images in the “50 Walks in the Yorkshire Dales” book, so I imagine there are roughly the same number in each of AA walk book publications, presumably all in the same position as me.
  10. A recent AA walks publication includes photos from Alamy contributors, including one of mine. The sale has never shown up in my account (the publication has been out for months, so it must be quite a while since it was uploaded to AA). I’ve sent a few emails to chase it up, and the only answer I am getting is “it’s with the accounts dept”. The only reason I know about the sale was because a friend bought the book and spotted my name as a contributor to the photography. I do understand that payment can be delayed for various reasons (not that it should be), but can anyone explain why it hasn’t appeared in my sales once downloaded from Alamy? It makes me wonder if our images are being used without knowledge or payment.
