  1. 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%
  2. 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
  3. Hi all I have just noticed that I have had my 500th sale, add them all up = $42,272, better than a poke in the eye with sharp stick. I might celebrate with a cup of tea.
  4. Dear Seniors, I wish someone look into my port and give me some tips to improve my port at Alamy, jn order to get some sales. I am bit disappointed with low level oc sales which demotivates me to caption, tag and upload more. Regards Khan.
  5. Hello Friends, I recently joined Alamy and I am wondering how this site works to sell the photos. I have posted about 170 pictures on this site. Over 100 have been optimized to goos discoverability and yet I do not see any views on my image manager. Is it too early to expect? I have been here only for 2 weeks. another question regarding QC. If I upload a batch for 30 pictures and if they find one bad picture they reject all which i feel is very odd and it is a waste of time to re upload them again. In that case will it make sense to upload pictures individually instead of a ba
  6. According to my dashboard I have 1 sale this month but when I check the sales history tab there are 3 sales showing all for the same image, there is also a difference of just over 9$ - from sales this month to sales history. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
  7. A mouseover zoom now has a red Download button as well as the caption. No way to add to a lightbox until you actually zoom. I discovered it while checking to see if zooms are working for me with Safari since now I can't log in to my dashboard in Safari. Paulette
  8. Hi all again. Do people get to concerned over ctr and zooms? The figures may actually be effected (mainly zooms) i feel due to other alamy members looking for help/inspiration from other members images. May apply to the more successfull members as they would be the ones a newby might check first for ideas. Just a thought. Andy.
  9. 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
  10. This might sound crazy but how do I find out how many views and zooms I've had and how can I find my ranking....sorry if its obvious but I cant find this from My Dashboard....am I not looking in the right place?
  11. For a little while now, Ive had a total of 3 zooms, according to my dashboard. This morning, I noticed that number increased to 4. So I went to my 'Pseudonym' and noted that I had 2 zooms recorded rather than 4. I admit I'm a bit puzzled by this inconsistency. The previous time, I checked my 'Pseudonym', I had 3 zooms recorded, just like my dashboard indicated. Just wondering why the number of zooms would drop down to 2? Edit: woops, looks like I didn't have the right date range set.
  12. Curious to know how many photos, of other contributors are green/orange? Most of my images are prior to the new IM, and I have a ⅔ green and ⅓ orange... Thats about, for me, 1500 images that are less discoverable... Thanks for your input!
  13. 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

  15. Last summer I spent a lot of time editing pictures for a widescreen (normal screen now?) TV slideshow presentation at 16:9. Then, when I went back to viewing at 3:2 I found the view wasn't as pleasing. The question I pose for you good folks is... Is there, or is there likely to be a market for 16:9 images?
  16. Is anyone else finding that trying to zoom an image from a search result just isn't working? The zoomed image just doesn't load. It means I can't edit the images that way at all and this has been going on all day. Pearl
  17. I had a total of 42 zooms yesterday when I checked measures. Today I checked and there was another zoom from yesterday - but the total was 53!! Anybody else have any strange zoom behaviour today/yesterday? John.
  18. 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
  19. Hello, I am sure this question was asked before, but just in case Just got a new sale: $ 1.24 (Rights Managed) Country: WorldwideUsage: EditorialMedia: Editorial websiteIndustry sector: Travel & tourismImage Size: Any sizeStart: 12 November 2018End: 12 November 2023NU Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity Question : is this a joke?
  20. Hi all, I know the subject of zooms has been raised before on the board, but am I the only one to experience a significant drop in zooms for this particular month? I noticed volumes started to go south in October, but since then the rate of decline appears to have accelerated. It seems to me an anomalous situation, so I'm posting to gauge whether anyone else has noticed a steep drop. I'd appreciate your views.
  21. 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 ?
  22. I haven't had a zoom since the 13th Feb and just asking to see it's still working for everyone else?
  23. I don't suppose there is any way to link zooms and sales, is there? I just sold a photo that was zoomed in March. Is it possible that it has only now, 8 months later, been paid for, or is it more likely that it is a sale without a zoom? I'm hoping it is the former as I have had a good number of zooms, and that there will be a cumulative effect on sales as time goes on after my first year.
  24. It's Sun day, with sales coming in from that esteemed publication. Has anyone else had some multiple sales of images last month, followed by refunds two days ago, followed by the same images selling again today?
  25. Any thoughts on what aspect ratio is preferred by customers? Obviously 2:3 and 3:4 are the most popular OOC aspect ratios, but is there any preference for one of them? And what about more extreme ratios like 16:10 or 16:9? Doing landscapes, 16:10 is my (artistic) favorite, but does it sell? For a combined front and back book cover, some even more extreme aspect ratios are needed. What about wide-screen banners? billboards (I'm still dreaming of a 10k$ billboard sale)? There's many uses for extreme aspect ratios, but does the customer expect us to offer images with such aspect ratio
