  1. I check my sales and zooms by going into - Your iImages and then drilling down to the actual image sold/zoomed which I then annotate. When I close that annotated image the screen now jumps to another Alamy open tab rather than the thumbnail of that image. For the last ten years my system has reverted back to the thumbnail. Anyone else having this problem when they have more than one tab open?
  2. I'm curious of other contributors success with sales of archival images, how have they done? Obviously it would depend on the subjects. I have a huge number of mainly B&W 35mm negatives from the 1970's, 80's and 90's. For sometime I've been considering scanning a selection, but so far never had the free time. Extensive scanning is a should destroying job. I still have my Minolta Dimage 5400 optical scanner, it produces good images. What renewed my interest again was the fairly recent and untimely death of Magenta de Vine as she was known, as being in the news. She u
  3. Hi First post on here & I would be very grateful for any feedback you may have to offer. SALES DECLINE My sales up to the end of 2018 were increasing roughly in line with the number of photos online, achieving an average of just under a sale a week last year. However my sales for Jan-Mar 2019 have been almost nil and I am at a loss to explain this sudden drop. I would have expected them to remain constant even without the 1000+ images I have keyworded from late 2018 onwards. FYI I am still getting roughly the same zooms. Has anyone else experienced a drop in sales wit
  4. I was wondering if you guys see a correlation between views/zooms/ and sales? In relation to how many images you have uploaded?
  5. Just a quick poll, since going exclusive my zooms and sales seem to have come to a standstill just wondered if this is being seen generally, can anyone out there report good sales or at least normal since going exclusive. Conversely if you opted for 40% have your sales increased.
  6. Why I am not selling my images? I had high sales every week, but not since joining ALAMY. I have not changed the way I do things, but still really bad experience so far.
  7. I can't remember the last time I had an "iq" sale. Are they no more?
  8. So Yes I broke 100 sales, in four years... Odd though that the 100th was for "Magazine use. Duration: 3 months. Any placement: Inside or cover" but only sold for $6.79" For a magazine cover??? G
  9. Hello, I currently operate using a UK Limited company that is registered for VAT. When dealing with UK based libraries like Alamy, I receive 20% VAT which I pay to HMRC quarterly. That part is clear. Things get confusing when working internationally. I have joined libraries and POD sites that are not UK based. For example USA, Spain and Australia. I thought I didn't have to worry about VAT for these, but when I asked my accountant for confirmation, he sent back a rather confusing response, saying the rules are complex regarding digital services and suggeste
  10. The same image has been licensed twice this month with identical conditions of PU usage and time period, but in one case the rubric is in English and the other Italian. The fees differ by 13% - why? Should I live in fear of a refund coming my way?
  11. Since 1 week i'm having 0 for sales, zooms ...no views at all! I'm a bit worried... am i banned or did something wrong my ranking decreased a lot? Anyone having the same behaviour? It's the first time in about 3 yrs on Alamy something like that is happening. CTR is a bit above average
  12. Hi all I have just noticed that I have had my 500th sale, add them all up = $42,272, better than a poke in the eye with sharp stick. I might celebrate with a cup of tea.
  13. Now that Alamy is making a clearer distinction of images available only here, it only makes sense, imo, to have that information available on the sales page. Is work being done to make this improvement? Thanks, Michael
  14. Good morning, dear forum members. I'm sure you've talked about this topic many times , but I would really appreciate if you could invest a little more time and help me to find out what I am missing. First of all, I want to tell you some facts about me and my pictures - just to clarify a few things. - I am Olympus Visionary/Ambassador from Switzerland - My pictures are constantly published at National Geographic and winning different contests, awards etc. - All my pictures are exclusively at Alamy and I don't sell my pictures anywhere else - QC accepts 100%
  15. Hello Friends, I recently joined Alamy and I am wondering how this site works to sell the photos. I have posted about 170 pictures on this site. Over 100 have been optimized to goos discoverability and yet I do not see any views on my image manager. Is it too early to expect? I have been here only for 2 weeks. another question regarding QC. If I upload a batch for 30 pictures and if they find one bad picture they reject all which i feel is very odd and it is a waste of time to re upload them again. In that case will it make sense to upload pictures individually instead of a ba
  16. Dear Seniors, I wish someone look into my port and give me some tips to improve my port at Alamy, jn order to get some sales. I am bit disappointed with low level oc sales which demotivates me to caption, tag and upload more. Regards Khan.
  17. My zooms have been experiencing a rapid collapse since October for no clear reason. This morning they hit a multi year low of 28 for rolling month (yesterday 0 zooms from 568 views). 3 month numbers: October 2018: 97 November 2018: 53 December 2018: 31 This can't be down to just random chance. Is it just me or is everyone experiencing something similar? If you care to share what are you numbers?
  18. I've disengaged from that American site (being a cheapskate I hardly engaged, never paid any fees), but can't help but wonder if Alamy isn't missing a trick by not more aggressively marketing this service and maybe considering ways to promote it and make it more attractive for both contributors and buyers. Thinking aloud, is there any merit in having contributors earmarking images they feel are particularly suitable for this market? I have many dreary shots that are sound editorial material but no-one in their right mind would want to have them printed and mounted on a wall. Dir
  19. Hello dedicated photographers! This topic may have been questioned before long ago. But I need clearer answers based on your own experience, not theoretical one. Is it right RF photos are tend to get more sales than RM these days? Because I saw usual buyers are often from repeater companies, like The Sun, BBC, Guardian, and other media from British and Europe. This makes me assume ordinary buyers from another countries are prefer to buy RF than RM. What do you think? Thanks
  20. Hi I was pretty much dormant here on Alamy since 2007, with 75 images and 2 sales. End of 2017 I decided to try again, with a target plan for 2018 being 1000 images and one sale. I managed to go above and beyond on both, and have now several sales. However, I still don't understand one thing. None of the zooms I had since the end of 2017 resulted in a sale, and equally none of the sales were shown as a zoom (I think both these statements mean the same J ). Can anyone explain this to me? Thank you Pawel
  21. Hi There, Does anybody know if views and zooms by other contributors are added to the stats in Alamy measures? I know I quite often browse other contributors work and am conscious that they may show as zooms that are are of little or no significance to the contributor? Thanks, Steve

  23. According to my dashboard I have 1 sale this month but when I check the sales history tab there are 3 sales showing all for the same image, there is also a difference of just over 9$ - from sales this month to sales history. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
