  1. Sold twice in the same day, which is a bit curious. https://www.alamy.com/image-details-popup.asp?Imageid=C5248F50-5933-4D42-826D-683862DB04E6
  2. A photo of mine (see above) has been used on a cat calendar. It is credited to me and Alamy, but looking at my Alamy sales history, this does not appear anywhere. Has this happened to you, and if so, did Alamy sort everything out to your satisfaction? I have contacted Alamy about this, but I would like to hear from you if you've had a similar experience.
  3. As previously mentioned, each image is clearly labelled that no property or people releases are available on the shot, plus Alamy have also stated 'Available for editorial and personal use only.'
  4. Some of my shots are with other stock sites too, but Alamy have exclusivity on other shots. Why can't images be rights managed on Alamy and royalty free on other sites? That’s the first time I've heard of this.
  5. Which option is likely to result in more sales - Rights Managed or Royalty Free? Currently, the vast majority of my portfolio (some of it is exclusive to Alamy, most of it is not) is set to the rights managed option. Is that the right thing to do, or would it be more appealing to the buyer if it was set to Royalty Free?
  6. I'm 3/3 stars with 100% pass rate. No real change recently. Mine normally go through within 24-36 hours.
  7. On other stock sites I sell on, they don’t ask for releases when selling images of dogs for commercial purposes.
  8. Definitely yes. One of my scanned black and white images sold for $211 a few weeks ago. 😀
  9. Still can't access measures. Apart from fixing that, I'm wondering when Alamy will also fix the issue that you still can't access your Dashboard when you view their site on a tablet/iPad.
  10. Ever since Alamy's outage a couple of months ago, I haven't been able to access the Contributor Dashboard when viewing the Alamy site on my iPad (viewing it on a desktop is fine). All other areas are accessible. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a known issue?
  11. I've been with Alamy since January and have uploaded nearly 700 images, with a 100% pass rate. My QC rating is 3/3 stars. Out of curiosity, when - or how do you qualify for a 5 star QC rating?
  12. Update: I contacted Alamy. They did say it was within the licence boundaries - apart from one, which I've received payment for ($3.00 whoopee!). I've since found 2 more possible infringements, which I've asked Alamy to look into.
