  1. Hi, I'm wondering if there's anywhere on the site where we can see how well other contributors' photos sell. It would be interesting to see how well subject matter and composition similar to my own are selling. Is it possible to see information such as this?
  2. I received an email from alamy yesterday morning at 5:00 am congratulating me for a large sale of $315 it reads: Great Work, you've made a sale of $315. We think its brilliant for a collection of 2016 images and worth celebrating. .... blah blah blah Then it has links for me to tweet about my great sale. I was so super happy but now a day and a half later and this sale still doesn't appear in my dashboard lol. can someone explain whats happening? thanks! Lisa
  3. Good afternoon everybody. Flipping through the pages of this forum, (I'm following you even if I'm not very talkative) I noticed that some of you mentioned alamy sales mails. I wanted to ask you if, when a photo is sold, alamy sends an email notification. I did not find any options on this. Thanks in advance for your intervention lorenza
  4. This is probably a massively basic question (but I checked the FAQ etc and couldn't see it) but could someone tell me if the sales numbers shown in My Alamy are the amounts that I will receive, or the amounts that the pictures sold for, of which I would receive only a percentage? Many thanks.
  5. I don’t know why i never noticed before but I spotted today that my two cameras are set up differently. One is 3:2 the other 3:4. I’ve sold pictures in both formats but just wondering is one better for stock than the other. Any views?
  6. Good morning to you all Reading the forum and the various topics I read unstated sales, sales that do not appear in the contributor profile. How is it possible to understand when I made a sale and was not declared to me?
  7. When I select " all of alamy " and count up the number of sales for the last business week it comes to 516. That does not seem very much. If average sale value is about 40US$ then total earnings are about 20600 US$ . That is 10,300 to Alamy about £7300. Has anybody else followed these sales figures? Am I doing something wrong?
  8. I'm just wondering about the frequency of sales during the day. I can't ever remember getting a sale come through in the morning and then again in the afternoon. Is it a once a day addition or can sales get reported as and when they arrive at Alamy? The thought just crossed my mind that's all.
  9. Hi! I've been on Alamy for only three months with about 60 approved images. No sales yet and I'm wondering if I'm missing a step or doing something wrong. Is there any way to generate more sales? Or is it sheer volume and I just need to upload a lot more images? I'd appreciate any suggestions for selling some stuff! Thanks!
  10. 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.
  11. It's only been a year since I've worked with Alamy and some things are not clear to me. Can you help me to understand better? Is the date when an image is downloaded and then sold communicated? Is it true that more months can pass from the sale to the payment to the contributor? I can not understand why, at the current date I have only 9 zoom, how much do they count, according to your experience? thank you!!!
  12. Hi all, Had my first sale last month so I'm curious about the commission structure. I noticed there was: - 30% alamy commission - 40% distributor commission Is this right? I seem to remember 50% commission but its been a while since I read the fees structure. Thanks Hai
  13. 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.
  14. Hi, Newbie question: I was looking at Alamy Measures, All of Alamy info to get an idea of what types of images are heavily searched. For the last month or so, "dog," "london," and "black panther" are at the top of their list (this is the list for ALL ALAMY, not just mine, as I have not even uploaded any photos yet.) But the Sales column for each of these shows as 0. And all the other keywords have (what seems to me) ridiculously low sales given the apparently vibrant ecosystem that is Alamy. What am I missing here? Thanks.
  15. I haven't had a zoom since the 13th Feb and just asking to see it's still working for everyone else?
  16. Hi forum - looking for some advice improving image sales on Alamy. It's not something I've kept up with but wanting to get back into and hoping to make a few more sales. My portfolio last Summer was mostly events I attended with an interest in photojournalism, although now I'd prefer to look into architecture and conceptual stuff. Does anyone have advice on getting started, and where to improve on my current portfolio? 2 sales so far but my CTR is a little low for my liking. Thanks!
  17. I recently sold a couple of images, one used by The Guardian newspaper (7th Feb), and The Times newspaper (9th Feb), and the other image used by The Guardian on 8th Feb, but none of these sales are showing up in my sales history. I have noted that other photographers appear to have their sales history updated immediately, so I'm wondering why nothing has showed up on mine. Anyone have any idea what is going on?
  18. Is there a way to download a sales report as a PDF or Excel file? I'm only able to download a CSV file and DACS asks for PDF or Excel.
  19. Hello All, I was wondering if anyone here who sells on "Fine Art" sites runs into any type of conflicts on Alamy as far as licensing is concerned. Would an image sold on both Alamy and any Fine Art site have to be a royalty free image on Alamy? Or rights managed? Or does it even matter? P.S. I don't know what to call these "Fine Art" sites, I'm sure there's some blanket description for them, like stock, libraries, etc... but I think everyone knows what I mean - thanks everyone.
  20. Since 1/7/2017 until now I have had 50 zooms and 20 sale but only one of my sales has originated (although I cannot be sure of this as it could be a coincidence) from a zoom. Does this mean that zooms are actually irrelevant? Does it also mean that Alamy is short changing us by including CTR as one of the criteria for ranking? Kevin

  22. 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.
  23. I've never been a fan of translating software, especially for individual words (eg keywords / tags) for the simple reason that it doesn't work. Now Alamy has a German website, software is used for this purpose and I have started noticing some effects it's been having on captions. Jacob Reese Mogg has become Jakob, for example, Theresa May is now Theresa kann. Former shadow education secretary has become Ed Kugeln (think about it) and 'Theresa May attends the Conservative Conference' becomes 'Theresa besucht Mai der konservativen Konferenz' ('Theresa visits May (the mo
  24. My sales history seems to have disappeared - I had one refund today but I hope not all of my past sales have really gone. When I click on either of the links to it, the 'account name' field comes up blank. Anyone else?
