  1. Thanks for posting it John. I received the same response by email overnight. It is definitely more helpful than the previous guideline. Maria

  3. February 2019 Challenge: "What is Love?"

    Fun topic, thanks Michael! Here are a couple. Lovers made of sand. At the CNE sand sculpting exhibit in Toronto. And the Love Perogy foodtruck in Victoria, BC.
  4. Agreed. I'm still unclear about the policy. I have several images of statues, sculptures, totem poles, etc and I'm wondering if none of them can be exclusive to alamy (even though they aren't at any other agency). I've sent them an email.
  5. Poor Discoverablity

    Hi Hannah, Incorrect keywords will harm your alamy rankings and put your images lower in the searches. For example, with your image of a woman selling jewellery at a market stall C0755N, all of the keywords except a couple are about food and are irrelevant to the image. Potential buyers won't be impressed if such an image pops up when they are searching for one of those keywords, like "grilled food" "Indian food" and "vegan diet". Be sure to check each image to make sure irrelevant keywords haven't been added (accidently or not). Maria

    Congratulations Michael! And Wim, thanks for the details on all the previous competitions, wow! Maria
  7. How was your January?

    An unimpressive first month of the year. 2 sales, $8.57 net. Onward and upwards, as you folks over the pond say!

    Thanks Paulette. I see it now, I had not scrolled down far enough. Maria

  10. Non Exclusive check box

    Where do I find this check box, I'm not seeing it in AIM? Maria
  11. iPhone RAW pictures and QC

    AFAIK, photos from your phone are not suitable for alamy's main image library. But you can check out their other avenue for such images:

  14. Newbie needs help

    So you are uploading your images withe the help of your Fotor software? I'm not familiar with it but wonder what the output is, i.e., what is your file size and quality? Perhaps it is downsizing the images for posting online, or something like that.
  15. Commission Change announced in email

    I interpreted "print sales" to include POD sites, but wouldn't mind hearing alamys response to the inquires emailed to them.
