  1. I get relatively few sales in the U.K. so I suppose the U.K. uses much more content of U.K. centric images, just as the USA does of U.S centric images. My breakdown of the rolling year of image sales are as listed below. I suspect that many or most of the ones marked Worldwide, originated in the USA 145 Worldwide 7 USA 7 U.K. 4 Germany 2 Turkey 2 Spain 2 Denmark 2 Netherlands 2 Poland 2 France 2 U.A.E. 1 Japan 1 Canada 1 Italy 1 Serbia 1 Brazil 1 Latvia
  2. Thank you Alamy for the widening of this space! This one is now 999px wide and it came with the Keep the ratio box ticked when dragged from the Zoom page. Department of the Interior DC. Worldwide marketing $$$. wim
  3. American sales always seem to be for more $, but are very rare for me... Not that many to the UK either! Sales so far this year: Worldwide 29 Croatia 6 Czech Republic 1 Germany 3 German speaking countries 1 Finland 4 Italy 1 Ireland 1 Serbia 2 Turkey 6 United Arab Emirates 3 United Kingdom 3 United States 1 I wonder where the French source their images?? Don't think I've ever sold anything to France. Maybe they always purchase 'worldwide' because of all the DOM-TOMs.
  4. A person who seems to have experience as a buyer suggested on the forum that there is a hierarchy of searches: 1) Look for anything free 2) Try the micros and Getty ( basically the same thing for most sales these days, except Getty is often cheaper) 3) Have a look at Alamy 4) Try small specialist agencies and individual photographers 5) Commission a photographer Given the huge supply of images it becomes less and less often that the buyer has to work through the list to the end
  5. I have had 10 US sales this year out of 124 total sales, and the prices are definitely better. The average gross price of those is $73.5, which is about 2.5X higher than my overall average. They are a variety of subjects, including wildlife, plants, signs and objects, but no travel images - I don't have any images taken in the US. I do try to include American spellings and words in my tags.
  6. We can't tell you your profit because we don't know your business expenses, but if you mean when will you get a payment, it's at the end of the month in which your cleared balance exceeds $50. Since your balance carried forward is only $49, it will depend on future sales.
  7. I'm quoting myself. As a follow up, on one search, I had 3 zooms out of 4. Result: they all sold! 3 sales! Please keep the pattern for the other zooms...
  8. Yes, I do not expect more US than UK sales. But as I said in my OP I do get a large number of sales every single month to the various USA 'countries' from GI from the same images. Just hardly anything through Alamy. Perhaps its in part pricing related between the two agencies for the same images for non-exclusive images. I'm assuming that those reporting much better US sales are Alamy exclusive.
  9. I spoke too soon. Looking at my 142 sales so far this year, I have a higher proportion of UK sales than usual. The USA is still "No. 1" (of course 😄). USA -- 40% UK -- 27% EU -- 23% ROW -- 10% Again, I think it's all about content. If I lived in Suffolk rather than in North America, I'd probably have far fewer US sales. Only four "Canada" sales in the bunch, which is disappointing. I wish that Alamy could make more inroads here. How about opening a Vancouver office?
  10. Interesting. I don't have such a variety of countries this year as my distributors' sales have almost dried up, presumably because I disabled PU. No regrets there. Main subject to US is wildlife, followed by beaches, landscapes, international news. Just got one today actually. UK 64 ROW (usually Oz) 61 US 13 Europe 11 Australia 10
  11. Even stranger for me because I live in the USA and have some iconic American images in my Alamy collection. Out of my past 100 sales, one was American - a photo of a farmer's market in Ohio - and two were in the UK. The country that showed the most interest in my work was Turkey with the Russian Federation coming in second. In both of these cases, the images licenced were cooking images that could have been shot anywhere in Europe or North America. Wim, don't you love it that Pennsylvania and New Jersey are listed as nations?
  12. No I did not get that point at all from your previous post. That people don't understand the difference between stock and news and they need to edit their live news images more carefully and be more selective about what they submit. And that Live News could be stronger by being more selective. None of that came across. Thank you for clarifying. It seems that not only did the process of submitting in pre-digital days require more legwork, I would assume there were a lot fewer images to submit. Because 35mm film was expensive and part of the training and practice and affordability of
  13. I don't see a lot of UK sales if that's any consolation. The US and the EU predominate. I'd say it's all about content. For instance, my Latin America and Canada-related images do well in the USA. I actually don't have a lot of US content in my collection. I had a decent book sale of a Vancouver image (a totem pole) to Taiwan show up yesterday, which was encouraging to see.
  14. Just looked at my sales, too. Sales volume pitifully low this year (and let's not get into prices!), but half a dozen sales to the US - two of the same generic image of a vending machine, one of UK currency, others UK-based. All editorial stuff. Pertinent point is that the two highest value sales for the year (both $$$ for text books) were both for the US. Always try to use US spellings in tags, at least.
  15. Just looked at my sales for the last 12 months, pitiful as they are. One sale to North America. None to US. 3 or 4 to UK. One to Australia, one to Germany, the rest are world wide, which are the bulk of them.
  16. How to understand these values. What is the actual profit? Gracias!!! Account name : MARCELO DE LA TORRE Balance brought forward: $47.31 Total sales: $5.04 Commission / charges: $-3.02 Total payments to you: $0.00 Balance carried forward: $49.33 Cleared balance: $47.31 Next payment date: Not due
  17. 10 US sales - all garden plants - for an average of $70 gross out of 318 sales so far this year. They're not common - but they pay well.
  18. I had a $$$ magazine sale to the US reported yesterday, the twenty-fifth to that zone out of nearly three hundred for 2020. That includes around ten PUs - at the full price that most US sales thankfully return.
  19. Just under 400 sales listed for 2020 and only two give USA as the country of sale. I haven't yet checked the download data files. Given that Alamy gets more than 50% of its revenue from USA I am not doing very well. My non-ex images with XXX Images sell in USA, Alamy has a sales office in New York so what is going on? Any thoughts, experiences or possible explanations?
  20. My zooms are about average but this is the first month with no sales so far, when normally November is one of the better months for sales.
  21. Now we have this new Forum format, which is much narrower on most devices and displays, it's a good moment to point out the solution to images getting squished here. You can only remedy this on your own images in your own post. So if your images appear squished and you want to rectify that: Go back to your original post. Click Edit. Double click on each image and tick the box Keep original aspect ratio. Click save. Done. And as Allan said: And don't forget if it does not work check the max limit in pixels on the sides. (length or height) and re

  23. Probably still the squishing problem. Go back to your images for a moment, double click on each and check the box Keep original aspect ratio. That way they won't appear squished anymore. From the November Challenge: <> just here in the Reply to this topic. AKA Submit Reply box on this forum. So go back to your original post. Click Edit. Double click on each image and tick the box Keep original aspect ratio. Click save. Done. Why? Dunno. Sometimes an image comes with that box ticked but from some places it comes not being tic
