  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Has anyone else got an uncleared travel brochure sale from 6th July?

  7. 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?
  8.

  9. How is the order of displayed zoomed images determined? It doesn't appear to be by date zoomed, frequency of zooms, sales or reference number as far as I can tell - it also appears to change from day to day. Alex
  10. I read the topic on the new contract and the main concern seemed to be Alamy giving away images for free. To be honest, that doesn't bother me so much as I'm sure it would be a small volume thing...unless Alamy is going to an advertising based model but I'm pretty confident that is not the case. Instead what bothers me the most is the mention of "high volume, low unit sales" under item 9.1. To me this is subscription sales and the reason I just started submitted my images in greater volume is that Alamy "doesn't" do, or didn't do subscriptions. I cannot stand those dollar or les
  11. G'day all, I keep reading about zooms but despite searches I still can't find out how to check for zooms in my small port. Also wondering if iptc metadata is stripped when I upload? I add it but wonder if I am wasting my time. Cheers for the help.
  12. I was wondering if there's a (roughly) general zooms/sales ratio, or it varies a lot according to portfolio content? At present, mine is 4.75.
  13. I have sales that remain uncleared since c June 2018...do some customers have credit lines? I would have expected Alamy to demand payment upfront, especially when these are relatively small amounts?
  14. My ranking seems to have fallen badly over the last 6 months. I have been with Alamy for many years and have grossed a total of almost 350,000 US$ in sales. Is the value of a contributors overall sales included in their ranking and if not should it be ?
  15. Hi I noticed that number of zooms for my images reduced overnight by one (not sure about the views). Does not concern me particularly, but I struggle to image what could be the reason for this. Any ideas?
  16. Been patiently watching this site since joining last year. I got quite a few images past QC. But very limited zooms and sales. I certainly get more activity on other websites.......... Just lately i've having trouble getting past QC, I primary use an LX100.
  17. Hi everyone, Just a quick query, I have found one of my images online being used in an article here https://www.dn.se/sthlm/samtliga-kundvagnar-stulna-fran-systembolag/ That has been published on 20th August, however there is no record of this sale on my account, is there reason to be concerned? Is it possible for a singular sale to be delayed in registering on the account? Anyone else encounter this? Also, it's a bit strange that it's not credited to Alamy but IBL, which I have no idea what that is? Many thanks for any clues
  18. Hello everyone, I recently had a large royalty free sale refunded to the buyer, 7 days after it was downloaded. I was not informed by of the refund and only noticed it by chance. This has never happened before to me and was wondering if this is common among other contributors. Any info would be appreciated
  19. Hi Everyone - have had a few sales albeit with a low portfolio - I have recently had one sale of $12.56 so was expecting a debit of 50% from Alamy - however, my account reads 30% ($3.77) debit from Alamy and a further 40% ($5.02) Distributor commission - can anybody please explain why the double debit? thank you and best regards colin
  20. Hi, Four small sales today pushed me over the big 1000 sales milestone on alamy. I joined Feb 2010, so it took me just under 8 years and 7 months to get there. How long did it take you? Andy
  21. Hi, everyone I am Alamy contributor and I have question about difference in current cleared balance which is less than 50% of amount of sales to date. As I understand the commission is 50/50 and there is no taxes according to my tax form, so I don`t find any other information which will explain this difference. So please give me a link on this info or just explain me. Unfortunately I can not contact contributors@alamy.com because "Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender - Action: failed" Thank You for Your attention and answers in advance
  22. My last distributor sale was in June. Anyone else noticing a decline? Trend or just a blip of some kind? P.S. I usually have 2-4 distrib sales per month on average.
  23. After a couple of months contributing, I ---no, haven't had a sale, but---have got two zooms. Mom, is that you??? (Haven't figured out how to post images here yet.)
  24. hi guys...I know it takes time for zooms to convert to sales, but in your experience (I don't have my own data yet!) what have you seen as far as the ratio of zooms to sales? I have alot of zooms in the last few months and I am patiently (okay trying to be patient) waiting for some of them to turn into sales. Thanks for sharing. Mandy
  25. I am really posting this for the benefit of newbies or others with relatively few images on Alamy. I have only a relatively small number of Alamy images. Today it amused me the I have six zooms (which is as low as it has been for me for quite a while) and six sales in the last month; none of the zooms are the sales. Odd how things work sometimes. Perhaps some of this months zooms will be next months sales.
