  1. Today Alamy said to me: “Hi Vincenzo Thanks for your email. You can opt out of the novel use scheme, but you can only do this in April because we need a consistent collection of images as some of the Novel Use Schemes have long lead times. The stock photography market is becoming more saturated and in order to compete with competitors our licensing models have had to move in the same direction. Nowadays most publishers will only purchase an image for use if it allows them ‘rights in perpetuity’ due to the level of flexibility they require.
  2. Alamy so replied to me today: “Hi Vincenzo Thanks for your email.

  3. Alamy does not value its photographers. With the new rules there are no advantages in giving images exclusively to Alamy. For Alamy this will mean filling up with trivial images that are available at lower prices at other sites, this lowering of the level will push to lower prices and compensation even more in a negative spiral.

  5. So do I: today I opted out from Novel use! Now I am thinking going out from Distribution: too low control over Distributors...
  6. For more than five months expect the sale of one of my photo (August 2013) to appear in my report. I asked the staff several times ALAMY clarification. The responses were different, but no sollution is found. I report below the last two: January 2014: "Currently there’s a delay in invoicing (...) uses as we’re awaiting usage confirmation report from the customer. Our Billing team is trying to resolve this as early as possible.". --- December 2013: "We can see the sale is in our system and it should appear in your account within a month."
  7. One of my image was sold by the Alamy August 11, 2013 to a well-known newspaper but at present it still does not appear in my "Summary of items sold." After several requests for verification, the last on January 17, 2014, the situation has not yet been resolved, and the service responds in very general terms that "we're awaiting confirmation usage reports from the customer. Billing Our team is trying to resolve this as early as possible. ". Someone suffering from similar cases?
