  1. Thanks a lot for providing the detailed info. I have almost everything as RM, with the info on releases provided (I rarely have releases). It's a whole different story whether RF license instead would boost sales. I've seen threads on this before.
  2. Thank you both! Seems like I am generally okay then, as I hardly have checked the box either. There a few shots with my kids in them that I have specifically checked as editorial.

  4. I also tried FAA, for about a year with a free account with the 25 free images. Then I decided to upgrade and had close to 100 images. Soon after I upgraded I noticed an uptick in views and activity, however after three quarters of a year there were no sales. I gave up and closed the account last month.
  5. Hi fellow Alamy sellers. I am still unclear whether I should check the Editorial Only box on certain photos. 1. If a photo clearly has a person, property or art without the proper release, does Alamy automatically apply an editorial use license? Or do I need to check the box? 2. How does checking the Editorial box affect license types RM and RF? Does it matter at all what license is chosen if you plan on checking the editorial use only? 3. Does specifying Editorial Only help with sales for those particular types of images? 4. Finally, based on above, if I must choose whether to check the box or not, what if I am not sure whether something should be editorial? Should I just leave it blank and other settings like not having releases will be taken into consideration by the buyers themselves? Thanks everyone for any tips. Alex g.
  6. Are these your own or are they a collection of items from all Alamy sellers? Thanks for the info.
  7. What exactly are Lightboxes? And how do they help with sales?
  8. Hi Sally, Are you happy with them? What's the average earnings per sold print? Also, do you mind sharing a link to your site there?
  9. If you don't mind me asking, what settings do you typically limit when you do RM? Does RM make sense if none of the options on the second page are checked?
  10. Thanks, Kristin! I will have to go back and re-evaluate a lot of my images. I've seen some appear high up, but not many.
  11. Great sales, particularly the indigenous women march, the movie rolls, and the airplane view is neat too. How do you know about where in a search your photo appears? I check the keyword(s) used to find my photo, however, that can be only one of the words of someone's search, which may have included multiple words, adding many more photos to the search results.
  12. I don't know what Alamy looked like back in 2008, I've only been a member since last year. So a lot could've changed for their discoverability criteria. What I see is that the Optional tab of information also affects that rating. Make sure to go into it and add/update as necessary for the older images.
  13. Up to 6 now, wow! How do you do it? I know I've seen some of your sales on the monthly forums, do you mind sharing the image codes so I can see them all?
  14. Most of my images are exclusive to Alamy, even though my portfolio is small and only a couple of sales. But those two sales are more than couple of dozen of downloads and loathed other giant stock site, where I had 2 download sales yesterday for amount you can't even buy chewing gum for.
