  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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

  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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 ?
  17. 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.
  18. I haven't had a zoom since the 13th Feb and just asking to see it's still working for everyone else?
  19. 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.
  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. 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?
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. I've just taken a look at my measures for the weekend. No zooms for me (not unusual), but, perhaps surprisingly, only 4 zooms in total over 10 screens of views. One topic (suffolk [WOP] [UK]) garnered 25,000 views without a zoom. I've not looked at this data before, maybe it's the norm, but I would have thought that the newspapers would be working over the weekend and some of them do generate zooms.
  25. hello. I am curious if anyone can explain to me what it means when you have a certain amount in sales but it says you are owed a smaller amount? why is that number so different? Thank you.
