  1. UK, single editorial article, $ Btw I carved the ones on the left and right. 🙂
  2. Thanks. I am feeling optimistic as things can only go up from here 😃.
  3. Zero, zilch, nada! The first month with no licenses in several years. December's CTR the lowest in 2020 as well.
  4. Thanks for the useful tips Wim. I finally went back and fixed a couple of my images. Cheers, Maria
  5. Mine is following a similar trajectory John. Sept-Dec my CTR has been .52, .53, .49 and .25 for this month. Lowest in over a year, and not a sale yet this month.
  6. I notice my images above are looking a little squished. Maybe changes to the forum website has altered how images show up and the way I usually post them (drag them over) isn't the best. What is the current recommended way to post them? Thanks. Maria
  7. I like this topic Bella! I find repeating patterns (especially colourful ones) to be so visually appealing.
  8. I came here to ask the same question. I had 2 refunds for UK travel guide images licensed in June. Both were of Victoria, BC.
  9. 5 licenses, so it was a pretty good month for me. Prices not the greatest, 2 PUs, 2 magazines (Ok $$), and one editorial (sad $).
  10. Small sale for this image showed up Friday. $ Making a couple bucks from my gardening. Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Editorial website Industry sector: Media, design & publishing Image Size: Any size Start: 16 October 2020 End: 16 October 2025 One use in a single editorial article used within the digital versions of a single publication.

  11. Hi Kamira, Most of my alamy sales this year are of images I uploaded in previous years. It can take a while before someone is looking for what you have in your portfolio. As has been mentioned, keywording is very important. Always include plurals of objects, even if there is only one in your image. For example, if someone was looking for an image of "antique vehicles in Cuba", they wouldn't find your nice image 2D4MRM0 of an antique car in Havana, because you only have the singular "vehicle" in the keywords.
