  1. Thanks ! That worked then ! I'll quiz alamy at the Photography Show in Birmingham. Disappointed of UK
  2. I sold my first image on Alamy -Yay! But I didn't get as much money as I expected - Boo! (and I do understand the 50% commission) Just so a newbie like me understands - it was an RF license for " Commercial electronic, Website, including online marketplaces such as Amazon and Ebay, social media and app use, any size, single placement and design, worldwide, in perpetuity. 46 MB 4896 x 3264 pixels 2 MB compressed Image Size: Any size Start: 10 December 2019 End: 10 December 2024 " Cost to buyer $3.75 according to my sales history If I look at this ima
  3. Thanks for all the repsonses folks. Sounds like its not a top priority, but worth a glance
  4. Just wondering how useful folk are finding the "What to Shoot" list. I'm new to stock, so I'm wondering how much effort, if any, its worth putting into creating new images that are specifically on that list. Or is it just worth browsing the list to see if you have images that will match a request ? It depends a little on how the list is made. I guess you can go & check on All of Alamy how many searches have been made recently for a topic & make your own judgement ....
  5. Just had a look at AoA. Bit of an eye opener - the odd castle is no good, I just need pics of Marilyn Monroe & a hundred other celebs & politicians!
  6. Thanks Joseph - from a quick look people seem to be getting average earnings of $15 - $30 per sale. I'm not sure of the RF/RM balance of that. Harry, I'll have a look at AoA - taa for all the info. Very helpful
  7. Thanks MizBrown, that's useful too. To see what people were searching for, do you mean the "related searches" listed after you've done a search? Thanks
  8. RGfoto, that tool looks interesting but for me it just returns shutterstock images. How does it help keywording?
  9. I thought £3000 year was highly unlikely Joseph! What's the typical Alamy earning per sale for the photographer? £15- £20 for RF ?
  10. Thanks so much Joseph. You've gone above & beyond with some great advice. The competition strikes me as difficult. I used to hear rule-of-thumb figures for stock like £1 per year per image, so your 3000 images might be earning £3000/year, but I guess in the current world of microstock that no longer applies. Is there a current approx figure? I do wonder how much time it's worth spending on stock. I'll check the RF images with people & no release, & tick the editorial only box. I do indeed need to get tighter & more precise with the keywordi
  11. OK Paulette, that's true too. For me it was Firefox not displaying properly
  12. Thanks John. Ahh, just found what it was. "Show all" and the images beneath were getting mangled by Firefox. Works fine in Chrome.
  13. Thanks John. I have seen "show all" occasionally, but most times only the list of 10 or so tags is shown, with no "show all" link eg this image, one of mine, has 31 tags but I only see about 10 in search: https://www.alamy.com/the-keep-and-kings-hall-bamburgh-castle-northumberland-england-uk-may-2017-image243256054.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=ADF4A68D-78BB-4AF8-AB25-875B566566FC&p=152881&n=0&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=0&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d0%26pn%3d1%26ps%3d100%26sortby%3d3%26resultview%3dsortbyRelevant%26npgs%3d0%26
  14. This is a basic question, but how do you see the tags on existing images (from other contributors?) - I'd like to learn from what other people do. I'm sure you just used to search for a topic, click on an image, maybe click on it again, and the details of the image would include the tags. Now there a few tags listed, but not all of them. Thanks!
