  1. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    With my latest sale, this year's sales are equal in number to my total for 2017, and we're only halfway through 2018. And gross revenue so far is already higher than last year's total. Pretty happy about that. I recently passed my 5 year mark on alamy, and over these years I've learned a lot from the helpful folks here on the forums. Thank you.
  2. Taken last summer. PU sale.
  3. Poppies?

    The bottom ones look like California poppies to me John. But I'm not an expert. Poppies are such interesting flowers and so many varieties are out right now. Maria
  4. Incorrect image credit

    I had a magazine sale yesterday (via distributor) and found it online. However my image was incorrectly credited. Not only with the wrong name, but with the wrong agency. This image is only on alamy. All the images on that page had the same credit. Just wondering if others usually take any action when this occurs, or are just happy that it's a sale. Maria
  5. So how was your May, eh?

    Zooms down but BME for sales volume (7) and revenue. Had a surge of 4 sales in the last 2 days of the month including a very nice calendar sale.
  6. Has the forum gone strange?

    I never pay attention to who is logged in. People are still here and posting.
  7. May Challenge TWILIGHT

    I like this topic Colin! Here are my three: Recent image of Vancouver skyline. English Bay, Vancouver West End Food trucks at Shipyards Night Market in North Vancouver
  8. My zooms are plummeting since I paused submitting

    I'm also showing a significant drop this month compared to last month.
  9. Certain rules for some?

    All of the ones I've clicked on by that contributor/agency say they are historical/reportage. Does that affect pricing?
  10. No Sales - Please help

    As Joseph stated so well, it is often a lengthy period of time from when an image is uploaded to when it is downloaded and then invoiced. Even if you have a lot of images up, if it's only been a short time since they were put online. Looking at my last 5 sales, the dates of the images were Aug 2017, Jan 2016, July 2013, July 2015 and June 2014. Unless you are covering a very timely and in demand topic, it may be a while before recently uploaded images are even searched for. And it also depends on the number and quality of competing images on the same topic. Maria
  11. Mine was in 2014 with 320 images up.
  12. Just made my first sale

    Congrats Patrick, it's a good start!
  13. 5000 Milestone at last

    Congratulations John!
  14. No Sales - Please help

    You can check on All of Alamy (AoA) through your dashboard to see what customers are searching for on Alamy. You can also search AoA to see if customers are looking for the subjects you are covering or are planning to cover. I think it's a very helpful tool that Alamy provides for their contributors. Maria
  15. And the winner is........Colin Woods' image of the Morning mist in Gaspesie, Quebec. By a considerable lead! Congratulations Colin!
