  1. I use it..... The AI search is pretty good at finding that shot you remember you took, but have no idea when! Annoyingly, they dont recognise Canon .CR3 file formats as photos - so they count as normal files and quickly fill up your free space! .CR2 files do count as photos - so you have unlimited storage of those. I have tried to point out to them that .CR3 files are more compressed - so they would be better storing those!
  2. Yep - I just had a similar record sale drop in (11 May) $0.10 after distributor and Alamy commission - I’m left with $0.03. ! Shows up as “bulk discount, flat rate”
  3. I like paying via an App (or Phone)...... what I don't like is being charged extra for the privilege, and the council calling it a "Convenience Charge"!
  4. Another sale - I now have reached last years total number of sales - and am slightly up on last years revenue already 🙂 Low $$$ Magazine - print, digital and electronic; Print run: 25,000; Duration: 1 month; UK Edition & Worldwide Licensees
  5. I can remember all my old cars..... ...... but when I get to those stupid ticket machines that insist on entering your reg number, I can't remember the number plate of the car I'm driving! (Lucky I have a couple of photos on my phone!)
  6. 😞 Thats not very good! But then - from a company point of view - In the year the sale was made you did receive income, and pay the taxes This year, the refund will reduce your revenue, and your taxes will be less for this year. If the refund had VAT - then the VAT should also be refunded - so you shouldn't have to "reclaim" anything - just include it in this years figures.. Jools
  7. I assume this wouldn't have gone through your company accounts From my company point of view the invoice is generated (self generated by Alamy) when they make the Royalty payment to my company - so you get a maximum of one invoice per month. You only get the royalty payment when there are cleared funds, so a "sold" image, which never clears would not show as a sale through my company accounts. Julian
  8. Still works for older cars - I just tried entering the reg "1RAC" and it came back with 1RAC SIMMS SALOON Check another vehicle ColourMaroon Fuel typePetrol Date registered31 December 1900 MOT expired on28 October 2015
  9. I think it was - or is based on a Bathing machine - A victorian contraption that you would get changed in - and could be pushed down to the waters edge https://www.alamy.com/search.html?CreativeOn=1&adv=1&ag=0&all=1&creative=&et=0x000000000000000000000&vp=0&loc=0&qt=bathing machine&qn=&lic=6&lic=1&imgt=0&archive=1&dtfr=&dtto=&hc=&selectdate=&size=0xFF&aqt=&epqt=&oqt=&nqt=&gtype=0&pn=1&ps=100&qt_raw=bathing machine&pl=#BHM=foo%3Dbar%26st%3D0%26pn%3D1%26ps%3D100%26sortby%3D2%26
  10. A quick selfie as I BBQ'ed tea! - Great to be able to be back out in the camper van! (RX100 - with the grass being the tripod!)
  11. An image taken at the first event I covered especially for "Live News" last year. I didn't sell any at the time - there were a number of press photographers from the local rag at the press night.... But definitely worth getting a few headshots! I suspect it was used in an article regarding Plymouth Theatre Royal - they announced that there were going to be redundancies as shows are cancelled.

  12. Just found a usage of my Sidmouth image in The Sun - from July 7th Also an Alamy News image from Paignton (not mine!) https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12058851/uks-holiday-hotspots-hit-coronavirus-second-wave/
  13. You could also request access to "reportage" and upload your images there. They are immediately available for sale - If you have captioned and tagged them..... and do not pass through QC. They are not included in the Live News Feed - but if you think its really newsworthy, I would drop the news team an email to notify them.
  14. Nope - Its a Citroen Mehari! based on the Ciroen 2cv and Dyanne https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citroën_Méhari
  15. 2 sales popped in at the end of the month - both from the same news set, and, I think, used in a Metro online article. Both low $$ Jools
  16. Getting ready to welcome to tourists back!
  17. If I have covered an event - I create a Lightbox of my images, and then send that to the PR team https://www.alamy.com/search/lightbox/4081625.html
  18. I'm still confused with this!! Items I have submitted via stock are mostly listed as RF, Items I have submitted as Live News are RM...... But...... Most of the images that have been sold - although I have them listed as RF, seem to have been sold with a RM licence When I chack my sales history, all of my sales have "Licence = Royalty Free" (apart from one which was listed as RM) But the "Details" vary a few examples This one does look like it really is Royalty Free 86 MB 4480 x 6720 pixels 2 MB compressed
  19. Hi John I signed up with Pixieset when I photographed my sisters wedding - I had agreed to photograph the wedding and provide her with an hardcopy album. I uploaded all the images to Pixieset - She could then "Favourite" the ones she liked - and I used her choices to design the album layout. She could share the images (low res with watermark) on Facebook and with her friends. I then received a number of orders for prints - from people that I would not have known about! So That worked well. If I'm doing a paid shoot then I create a gallery, and send
  20. I use Pixieset.... There is a free plan - you can upload 3Gb of photos, and there is a 15% commission on sales - but the free plan is not a time limited trial..... (Bonus of 250Mb storage for signing up through my link 🙂 - https://pixieset.com/ref/MVylLNmbyr ) or you can pay to upgrade the limits and have commission free sales - you set the prices for your customer. Printing is handled by Loxley Colour in Glasgow. I've used them for photo prints, wedding albums and canvas prints - so there are a lot of options. I also use
  21. I've had an image used in the Guardian reused on several sites - with the same text..... All have copied the image and re-hosted it. Will check with Alamy once lockdown is over - and then will ask CopyTrack to see see if they can pursue. (They are all outside UK/US which I think are the main countries Alamy chase)
  22. and I see we also have "The Original One"...... guess who!
  23. The Alamy home page has had a bit of a makeover! New "My Account" dropdown and options.... although the contributor pages once you click on them are all the same. Julian
