  1. Comparison between 2021 vs 2020: - Portfolio: +10% (poor motivation) - Views: +30% - Zooms: +9% - Sales: +16% - CTR: -16% - Gross income: +25% - Gross per image (average): +8% - Average gross price per image: $23 - Net income: +12% - Net per image (average): -4% - Earnings per image per year: +1% Best year ever (my first significant year was 2018), so can’t complain too much. Last quarter was awful. Still pending a BBC magazine license to appear and several unauthorized use claims. Happy New Year to everyone and best photogr
  2. I can confirm that my live news images from today are live under the "New" tab, but my sales from Friday don't appear on the dashboard.
  3. Sales rarely get reported at the weekend, nor does measures update, so a delay in the dashboard isn't really an issue. Like Rebecca, the issue with the database freezing on the other hand is images which should be on sale that aren't. I have sixty missing images so far, which is quite low for me as I've been pumping out old ones at a fair rate of knots, plus live news images which will vaporise overnight. I hope that the promised upgrade is a final one and such issues become history.
  4. Same here but I'm not missing much at all Never get any sales anyhow and with CTR is going backwards rapidly Just hate looking now
  5. Well done Michael, good challenge! Opening of "The Public" - art gallery in West Bromwich, a somewhat short lived venture ... Lady out walking Sidmouth Esplanade at night. Boxing day sales at Selfridges, Birmingham.
  6. Sadly, dental care is not covered in Canada. Politicians always say they are going to do something about it. However, their hot air stops flowing after elections are over. We have some private dental insurance through my wife's pension, but it is pretty basic. Currently, I need over $3000 of dental work (crowns), but it looks as if the work may have to wait, unless of course I reach the "Platinum" level this year or I get enough of those lucrative China sales. 😁
  7. At the moment I have three zooms and all three searches have less than a full page for each search. TWO of my three images positions in the searches appear at the left of the top line in each corresponding page which I take to be top of search. (Which would be very good if we were using the old BHZ search). The third image is a mystery. There is only about half a page for this particular search but my zoomed image does NOT appear on the page at all? It is either soo good that it is off the top of the page or soo bad it does not appear a the bottom. Good thing
  8. Second best month of 2021 for sales with 23, and best month of the year for revenue with $469, giving an average of $20. Luckily no $0.15 sales but I did have 2 at $0.17. Highest $85, but it was a distributor sale. John.
  9. 2021 was the first time I've seen an upward trend in sales and both gross & net revenue since 2017 (when gross revenue was the same as this year, and net was ~20% higher). 2021 was 430% better than 2020 (which was my worst year ever, so easy to beat). Good to see an upward trend, although I had around 700 fewer images back in 2017, about half as many as I do now, so I'm not really catching up, more like treading water after nearly drowning. Still, far better than 2020, and considerably better than 2018 & 2019 too. I only added 33 images this year, after 2020 was such a bu
  10. My sales didn't go up until I had over 1100 photos up. I'm not going to put all of them back up, but will resubmit every thing that did sell and anything that I think is one of my better photos, and try to do better if I'm able to get out to photograph in the future. And since I can cut and paste captions and keywords from the spreadsheet I got before leaving, that part will be much simpler than in the past. A little money is still money, and my cameras all still work. I could have just stopped working at contributing. In retrospect, that would have made more sense.
  11. I had 3 sales when I had less that 500 photos all licensed in 2021. I have about 800 in my port now but no new sales. I have licensed a flower close up picture here with no latin name but have since gone though my port and added the latin flower names as much as I can by googling the common names.
  12. 6 for $150, ranging from 15 cents to $80. Average gross $25. The 15 cent one was an RF to China as was a full page print RM editorial for a Chinese magazine for $8.82 (under 10K print run - tiny for China). I get a whopping 4 cents/$2.11 for those. I've seen lots of <$1 sales via G to China, so not surprising. I agree that if you count the pretty rare $$$ licenses you need to count the piddly <$ licenses into your average too. Otherwise it really is skewed. If 83 out of 150 sales for some people are 0.15 then they are more the rule than the exception. Still
  13. Yes. Sales take at least 45 days to clear. This is clearly stated in the contract. Most do clear on time.
  14. Being in Texas with no portfolio UK content I don't get the lucrative UK newspaper sales 😂 - and so far none of the "penny stock" China sales. Contributor reported image pack sale incomes are pathetic. These appear to be one focus of Alamy sales efforts in a bid to shore up corporate revenues to the detriment of contributors. All this has sapped motivation. Still contribute some randomly as I feel like it. But my efforts in recent months have been and will be going forward on increasing my stock video footage knowledge and portfolio.
  15. I haven't been on the receiving end of these sales - yet I have skim read the thread that John has linked to though I certainly won't be increasing my RF images as this seems to be a part of the problem- will be sticking to RM
  16. a couple of nice sales this morning both mid $$ Angmering Sussex Bandera Texas
  17. Hi Everyone, KURIR ( Serbian Tabloid) I know its a tad late however I found that Serbian tabloid KURIR has a number of Alamy Images this particular one credited to - Peter Jordan / Foto: peter jordan / Alamy / Alamy / Profimedia 06.12.2021 KURIR ( Serbian Tabloid) Ron De Santis Image ID: FR3TXP, Gage Skidmore DESANTIS KAO IMPERATOR: Trampov naslednik sa Floride želi DRŽAVNU GARDU od 200 vojnika koji će odgovarati samo njemu (kurir.rs) 15/12/2021 KURIR ( Serbian Tabloid) Image ID: 2H0XGG7, Mykhailo Palinchak PORAŽAVAJUĆA STATISTIKA U SAD od kovid
  18. Like many, I too have recently had some sales for pennies. All are to China, and amazingly most are in perpetuity - quite incredible. Just WHY are Alamy selling these at ridiculously low rates. As someone who has been to Tibet for ethical reasons I do not want my photographs sold to China. If Alamy persist in treating us photographers like idiots then there is one simple solution - I will not be uploading any more material to Alamy. Robbie Shaw
  19. I'll be paying close attention to the sales over the next month or so with the view of pulling my port here. Once you work out the net inc here, it's tiny compared to the rest so I've no problem in shutting it down to protect other sales elsewhere from the mass $0.04 China sales.
  20. I've been with Alamy for years and it's always been a small seller for me, but it was a good add-on. When Alamy announced their newest royalty reduction, I paid no attention to the $250 gross threshold for staying at my current 40% royalty rate because I'd never had such low earnings and it wasn't an issue. After the pathetically low sales at the end of 2021 - and I had a number in November at 21 cent gross, 8 cents for me as well as the 15/4 cents sales from December 30 & 31 - I looked at my 2021 gross sales for first half and second half. The second half sales were one tenth
  21. I just received a $26.70 payment listed as ASCLR payment - 2021 in the Net Revenue Sales Report. You have to download the report to see the details.
  22. Good start from me too. Two decent $$ sales on the 3rd and today one $$$ and another mid $$ for UK magazine use.
  23. Aren't PU sales paid for at the time of download? Mark
  24. So it looks like the OP's sale never cleared and was eventually refunded when it became clear that payment was not going to be received. Not a happy situation but it is understandable that the sale should be cancelled under those circumstances. My initial response to the OP was based on a misunderstanding, I thought that the sale had been cleared and funds paid to the contributor and I thought a such refund after three years was unacceptable. This was my mistake. However, I am sure I've seen reports on this forum of other cases where contributors have had sales refunded
