  1. Probably the last of what has been a good month for sales - though less so for average prices. Country: Worldwide ; Usage: iQ sale: Magazine, Editorial print and digital use. Any size. Any Placement. Repeat use permitted ; Industry Sector: Media, design & publishing ; Start: 26-February-2021 ; End: 26-February-2026 Reasonable lower $$
  2. Anyone else started seeing licence sales for both 'multiple' usage AND 'unlimited' duration? This effectively means my image will never be sold to that customer ever again. If that customer is a large publisher this could be highly detrimental to my future income. It also has the effect of devaluing this image for all my other clients. I have deliberately opted IN to 'rights-managed' and OUT of 'royalty free', but this makes a mockery of that distinction. What is a fair price to charge a client for such usage terms in your opinion? (50% of $125 is not what I had in mind perso
  3. Two sales for mid-$$ under the same license terms. Country: Worldwide Usage: Ad and designMarketing Package Use. Any size. Any placement. Missing Industry sector: OTHER - Comms Start: 03 February 2021 End: 03 February 2031
  4. It's not a "legal disclaimer". It's a contract term that you agreed to years ago. If an image licences under NU it says so on your sales summary, but I haven't had one for many years so the details may have changed.
  5. On Dashboard go to Measures, Your Images. The default shows you one month but I usually change it to Yesterday because I check every day. Then click on your pseudonym to show all your activity. One trick is that on the black bar at the top you can click zooms to bring them to the top in that column. You don't have to do that every time. It will stick. Then you can click on the search term on the left for the ones that show as zoomed and you will see which of your images were seen and the zooms will have a blue frame. You can click any of the search terms to see which of your images came up in
  6. With Covid lockdown I have been mining my image collection for image bits and pieces to combine for new photoshop illustrations. I have been getting zooms on artificial intelligence and the singularity, so thought I would do some more. Monoliths are in the news recently so I thought I would rework a photoshop illustration from the early 1990's that did not quite work at the time.
  7. I don't know what the uses are as only look at Net Revenue Sales Report but I think they are all US sales as round figures, all the same amount. Pearl
  8. Yes, of course customers will push for whatever they can get at our expense. But I see no way to license images for unlimited, multiple use through the Alamy website, so who agrees to these sales on our behalf? I have not consented to these terms so where are they documented? Transparency is also essential here. If Alamy chooses to make exceptions to the publicly stated licensing terms they should tell us who they're giving them to, so that we can decide for ourselves whether that was a profitable decision.
  9. Hey Dominic, Yes, I got a $125 unlimited duration sale this month. Clients seem to want flexibility with licenses - many sales these days seem to be some sort of RM / RF hybrid. Companies need to supply what clients want in order to thrive. And if you're rigid about not doing it, there are plenty of competitors that will offer hybrid licenses. Sorry, I don't think you're going to like my answer. The market doesn't care about being fair or what images used to sell for. The question is whether you think Alamy is getting the best price it can for your images, in the current marke
  10. Zooms holding up reasonably well with 25 so far this month. A bit down on average but not disastrously so. Did a quick check on my zoom numbers and zoom/sales ratio for the last two years and, despite the pandemic, there is very little difference between the figures with no great drop off showing up: Year Zooms Sales Ratio Zooms to sales 2019 987 365 2.70 2020 963 362 2.66 It could be that specialist portfolios are better insulated against swings in demand - or I could just be lucky,
  11. I have four TV usages for 2020. The only licensing info is; 'worldwide, editorial, television' for three of them and 'Missing television broadcast' for the other one. Anyone had any luck tracking down TV sales for DACS claim? One of the images was a Wetherspoons pub, a few other contributors reported a similar sale. UK TV? Thanks Joe
  12. Thanks all for the critique and thoughts and hints. I have not overhauled the entire archive, and already starting to see improvements. If a week is anything to go by (which I think it isnt), then the 1st week of Feb compares like this: 2020: Your Views: 55 Average CTR: 1.82 Zooms: 1 2021: Your Views: 129 Average CTR: 4.88 Zooms: 4 So hopefully this is going in the right direction.
  13. They made me laugh and cry last week when they proudly announced that, since I had sold 10 video licences since January. I was now entitled to the princely rate of 20% (up from 15%). The only trouble is that nearly all my sales at SS are via a subscription clippack which nets me a grand total of 35 cents (up from 26 cents) per sale. You'll not be surprised to hear I'm in the process of deleting my SS video portfolio and growing my exclusive collection at P5 which pays 60% on a retail price you set yourself. Sales are only occasional but at least they give me a feeling of satisfac
  14. That's it in a nutshell. Of my 37 sales this month, all but 2 are news.
  15. a couple of high $ newspaper sales today, every little helps this sign has sold quite a few times Noss Mayo in south Devon
  16. I understand that the commercial buyer will not go through the normal portal and Zoom images there before buying. It happens, I see it, no problem. But, personal use images will be different. Who would buy an image without looking at it closely if they were going to use it for Usage: Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts. Non-commercial use only, not for resale. I think its acon. Its commercial users who see a $13 useage as the cheapest option and go for it because the chances of getting caught are nil.
  17. Only zooms from a limited number of Alamy's commercial customers are shown on your dashboard. So zooms from a typical PU buyer would not show.
  18. 7 sales dropped in yesterday, it has to be my record in one day (I don't do live news). 6 were Presentations (ROW and US)... 5 were of beaches in Australia. 2 were flowers. Here's one of each.
  19. I suppose that your sale could be to TI Media mentioned in another thread. I had four sales of the same image to them this month. All of them have stuck.
  20. Over half way into January, I am surprised no "Positive result 2021" thread yet. So I'll get it going. Two sales from the same subject at $135 each for post card. Happy New Year!
  21. 1353 views today resulted in 20 zooms - a vast improvement on recent zoom figures. Hopefully will turn into some sales! Kumar
  22. I'm a little while at Alam and I see looking at other microstocks what caught my attention in the photos of Alamy are the photos of city streets, places like stores, supermarkets, I found it very interesting, but from the point of view of sales, for those who can sell these types of photos? Books? Advertising in any way? I found it interesting .. if anyone can write about it, because here in Brazil there are many interesting places excluding Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Thanks
  23. immortality; space; philosophy; philosophical; choice; afterlife: I'd certainly upload it. If I stopped uploading all the pictures that I thought probably won't sell, I'd lose a third of my sales.
