  1. did see a couple a French groups, didn't know that was the reason. like anything you revisit 30 years later, it is always weird. I have same vibe with New Zealand, still like it but it isn't what made me love it the first time.
  2. hard to believe that it's 6 times bigger than Oaxaca.. I found the centre manageable enough so it didn't feel that big, but on bus i does sprawl for a long time.
  3. only a few days on way to Tlaxcala. For sure spending more time next time. Sounds like a good stay to explore it and return to Tlaxcala.
  4. there is enough for everyone, and i play nice and share. where should i go next time? (whenever that is)
  5. wow, i have a math degree and i have no idea what that would be on. i can however hang a clothes line, years of experience in hostel dorms....
  6. which makes sense, if not people would just do each image as "individual batches" and force Alamy to effectively review all images and cost more, resulting in them needing more money for break even.
  7. thank you. Probably my favourite discovery of last trip. Was there during Carnival which was special, but even more as i probably was the only gringo, other than a few that came on a day trip from capital, so really nice Mexican experience... Nice centre, small and compact easy to explore and without the over presence of the expat influence in place like San Miguel de Allende. hoping to get back next time and explore a bit more around....
  8. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jul/19/canfranc-europe-unluckiest-train-station-hotel Canfranc station on the Franco-Spanish border. (archive image) Photograph: Bildarchiv Monheim GmbH. CEE70W (One word Caption, and most KW still in German, i guess when you have a good historic image little else matters)
  9. my understanding is that any sale with a "sale date" on or after July 24th will use the Gold level commission for most of use.
  10. i still have a love hate with distributor sale, but can't get myself to terminate them all. seeing how much i paid for the service is bad, but at least final results is more than 2 CT licences i had last month, plus at least for the next 8 days we get full amount recognised for next year's level (not a guarantee under new contract) Editorial use . Croatia, Book, print and/or e-book; Bulk discount, flat rate, just into $$ Reading pods installation in park in Zagreb.
  11. Full price Personal Use (though not sure i like the idea of it for personal use, so now changing availability) Mural by depicting the history of the city of Tlaxcala, Mexico
  12. they said it would be tracked, so I guess i was wrong in assuming they would provide us the information. At minimum a pull down in the menu
  13. currently for distributors you get 30%. Alamy took 30%, and there was a 40% commission To cover distributor commission. This was the same for all Distro sales regardless of the actual agreement between Alamy and the Distributor. As of July 24, You will be getting 40% of What Alamy receives, which most of us have deemed to be the amount Net of Actual distributor commission. Since none of us have access to the specifics of Alamy's agreements with each individual Distributor, I don't think we have an idea what our final % of the Original Licence Price will be on
  14. Though the new contract is not in place, the Qualifying period for Silver/Gold/Platinum levels on July 1, 2022, Revenue Year, has now started, when will Alamy provide this data on the Dashboard in order for contributors to be able to track it efficiently?
  15. just to clarify one thing, Distributor earnings is 40% of what is left "After distributor takes their cut", (what Alamy receives) which Alamy as still not addressed how this will be limited, nor if we will be privy to the information, or just reported the Licence fee NET of distributor cut , something also to keep in mind for people close to levels threshold for following year
  16. Even if image is deleted as per current contract Alamy is allowed to licence it for 6 months after the deletion and that even after date it disappears from searches, all that deletion does is reduced the chance of a client finding it, which takes it into the new contract terms- Contract is based on full portfolio, not just specific images sadly. They will argue that they are respecting the contract, based on their interpretation, and this has been confirmed to others, that Date of Sale is date they find out about it and client actually reports it. i personally
  17. If you accept the contract, ie. don't terminate, you accept it for everything that happens after the effective date, and since Alamy deems a sale to happen the date they find out about it, when the image was available for licensing would likely be deemed irrelevant by their interpretation. note: this is based on actual precedent of Alamy deeming their administrative process overrules the term of the Contract, in case of commission for Exclusive Images in current contract. Though the contract clearly states exclusive content is commissioned at 50%, Alamy has a non contractu
  18. it would also mean you accepted the changes, so any sales that Alamy deems after July 24th would be under the new clauses.
  19. see for me Alamy respecting contract in terms and essence is a good. -Sales get counted the day they are sold, not the day a client-some of them in a non arms-length relationship- decides to inform them, this will be a big issue over the next 2 weeks - and as stated before Alamy's position on what constitute sales date is not specified in the contract, they just hope the difference is not enough for anyone to challenge -All sales are likely reported, and -they don't hang on my report as uncleared for 6-9 months.
  20. actually all my PU are cleared on day 45 as per contract, never had a delay. One of the rare thing i like about them
  21. my lowest was $9.98, and that was bad, to see $6.99, just as they are increasing their commission is really demotivating
  22. i do a regular search of all images sold for PU or Presentation. better not find one.
  23. wow awful. also lowest amount i've seen for PU so far. that's like 65% discount....
  24. this one usage is wrong in so many ways, they use someone's picture, plus they also used character which i'm sure would be protected- have a feeling even using a model looking like Borat would have landed them in trouble.
