  1. from my side I've done a few more tests, and i still find inconclusive impact in search results and even looking in AoA seeing images in lower rated Pseudo with hits, and no hit from image higher pseudo.
  2. the above is from Adobe Stock, so the amounts refer to earnings below minimum payment thresholds
  3. Betty, just want to say that your advice to some of the newbies does get listened to by some. It's not because the question originator doesn't listen (and yes i also have notice quite a few recently) that it means your information is in vein. so as someone who has gotten a lot from the veterans, here is a big thank you.
  4. since RM is likely exclusive, do you have a similar mix to the rest of your portfolio in that subgroup? If not Couldn't the underperforming be linked to subject matter, not the RM vs RF nature of the offering? I don't know, just curious.
  5. First attempt at joining. Must say the works above are intimidating. H&W Crane in Belfast with amusement rides in puddle. (sadly a bit too windy) Crowd and Photographer in cyclist sunglasses People's silhouette in Greeting to the sun feature in Zadar
  6. how do you know there is no delays at so called "other stock sites" ? in fact i know of one that just had a bunch of retroactive adjustments all negative going back several months...
  7. not fake news An Adobe stock contributor actually posted elsewhere that his account will be closed and removed by month end due to above order.
  8. the logician in me would think you get tax benefits from money paid out to contributors as well. ๐Ÿ˜€. So it's all a question of priority from then on
  9. yeah, no problem I'm in N.I. currently so understand. Just as a foreigner myself i wanted to add the precision of the Schengen zone issue, which most people don't seem to realise makes it oddly different than Japan and the US. Though in all fairness, USA is another thing altogether to travel to.
  10. one big difference is this will probably be the first time you have to figure out Schengen rules, even though you were not part of it. Trust me, that is totally different that going to Japan
  11. ๐Ÿ˜€ you are right. and some people come on forum asking questions, but don't really want answers other than the one they already had. As on example search "Corvette 1960s Wisconsin" Four page of results, not one of the car identified, most not event from 1960s ( you would actually get same results for 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s. 2010s ), so loads of hits no views. and these all added after asking, why am i not selling?
  12. patience is one part, but it still requires work. Just uploading a load of image and praying the right person falls on it seems counter-productive. OP even stated he relies on outside search engines to sell his stuff, that he sells elsewhere at a cheaper price. To me uploading 1000 best images and optimising for Alamy search, is much more efficient than 5000 with hope and pray , especially if at same time you hurt your own Alamy rating, creating a self fulfilling prophecy that Alamy is inferior.
  13. Great advice. I would even add on option "if you donโ€™t have a tripod, you can also find a nice flat resting surface (table, chair etc) to set your camera on". and to reduce risk of shake further, use the timer feature
  14. i know you have moved on, so i am leaving this for future newcomers like me who will come through these thread as they try to soak in as much of the information to help them get started. The main issue is the comment about "art of photography is far more important than the science, the technical, or how many images someone uploads in a month". No one should argue with this, and i don't think anyone argued against. The forum however is not about the art of photography, it's about the art of stock photography, as it relates to Alamy, and this is where the veterans bring their value....
