  1. 'Build a downloadable sales report'.- just above the trendy, but slightly depressing, sales graph/ Overall I think it will be useful, once I've got used to it! I was worried that I couldn't find the old 'net revenue' screen - a greenie to Geoff for pointing out where it is. I must look at that screen 20 times a day to see if I've sold anything, and being as I've only sold 4 images this month most times I'm disappointed!! John
  2. I like how the info on sales and CTR are presented on the main page. However I'm surprised that "Best performing pseudonym" is based entirely on CTR, not sales. It's selected my pseudo that has no sales yet, so I wouldn't consider it a best performer.
  3. Looks good, Took me a few mins to find the forum link, anyone know where the zooms data is hiding?
  4. Still working this one out as well.... haven't found a solution yet. I used this a lot to isolate the previous days activity, zooms and searches. Did they have a panel of Contributors that they spoke to to find out how it was used? I would have thought this would have been picked up. Of course, there could be some way of doing it, just not found it yet. Click on the grey box (your images) at the bottom of Alamy measures and it takes you to the usual screen. Regards Craig Cheers.... I think that maybe all the usual screens/stats ticked off now. Just got to remember them all
  5. 'Build a downloadable sales report'.- just above the trendy, but slightly depressing, sales graph/ Thanks. And yes, especially the graph comparing sales with last year's is deeply depressing ... Indeed, in my case a rapidly rising curve over the last few years followed by a steep decline! It's not clear what the precise period is however, does it follow the calendar year or the UK tax year?
  6. Yes, I think you're right. A few teething problems. Funny, as my CTR goes down it appears my $ / sales go up. My CTR was at it's highest in Nov 2013 and sales were on a steady decline right up until Feb 2014. My CTR started to decline from Nov 2013 but my Sales/$ have been increasing, especially after Feb this year?!!? Doesn't appear to make any sense

  10. I like the new sales and CTR graphs, especially as mine appear to be going upwards at the moment. It seems to take more clicks to get to reach somethings and I end up with lots of open tabs and the "Account settings" personal info seems more accessible/prominent than needed. But overall I like it.

  12. phew.... that' a quicker one! Also, Noticed the average CTR for the whole of Alamy is way down compared to what it used to be, about .21 now. I recall it being aroun .44 - .5 not long ago, or am I imagining things? So if this is correct, is CTR dead now that mouse over zoom and add to lightbox appear to be taking over? Where does that leave ranking now, or, has Alamy already made changes?!? Edit the Edit - Anyone looking for "Net Revenue" for daily sales etc - click on "Build Sales report".
  13. In my opinion it's hopeless. Giving too much trendy graphics and information I would prefer to be without. Pop smart, but not handy for knowing and quick reference and access. Nor can I find the Revenue link giving today's sales immediately...... Edited: Hopeless is probably too strong and not the right word to use - but it was a stressful morning full of irritating incidents....
  14. But, I can't see the link to the Forum on the page?!?! I must be going blind, any pointers from anyone? Looks good, apart from the confirmed collapse of CTR. Sales are coming in but CTR is on a continuos decline... is this the result of the larger mouse over zooms, who knows. If Alamy rank is heavily based on this I may as well pack up shop now and look for greener pastures! Edit, only got here because of the "Back" key in Chrome.... still can't find the link!
  15. Indeed, very pleasing to record a first sale. Trick is not to get neurotic about selling, zooms or views, or so I keep telling myself..... $16.89 is not to be sniffed at in today's market, my three sales last month were Newspaper Scheme efforts at around $6,50, an improvement on some sub $6 sales in the past!
  16. I'll echo the congratulations. Mind you, those low prices makes me cringe. Hopefully the next one will net a higher profit. There seems to be no general rule when it comes to zooms. I've had images zoomed and then lease the next day. Others sell weeks or months down the road, and some zooms never lease at all.
  17. I agree with Chuck that the G-series are great cameras providing you know their limitations. This thread has prompted me to add up the gross sales I've had with my G12 and it comes to over $800 in less than 2 years - quite pleasing considering my modest portfolio size. By coincidence, 3 of my sales so far this month have been G12 images. The G9 may be an earlier model, but I certainly wouldn't give up on it yet.
  18. One of the best exhibitions I ever had of my B&W work, in terms of the prints looking good on the walls, was when I pursuaded the gallery to paint the walls an 18% reflectance grey. (In reality it could have been 18% anything). With most B&W prints averaging out to roughly 18% grey overall, a pure white gallery wall can appear to depress the highlights in the prints due to the high uniform values of the vast expanse of bright white wall space on the eye. I have only managed to convince a couple of galleries to do this over the years, as the expense of re-painting the whole gallery befo

  20. That certainly is an all-Canadian image, Niels. I've only got 52 Montreal images on Alamy, and they do quite well, definitely better than my Vancouver shots on a sales per number of image basis. Vancouver has been very heavily photographed, which I guess is part of the problem.
  21. You'd be amazeed how very poor Sony and other zooms can be on the A7R (can't say about the A7). It is not immediately apparent, because it's easy to be happy with results similar to Canon 24-105mm etc which are really not all that good. Then you take something the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.4 which I was using today, MF of course, stop it down to f/8 and find yourselves almost counting the pine needles in a forest two miles away. The only E-mount zoom I have got which delivers the goods is the 10-18mm. I'm sure the £1000 each 24-70mm CZ and 70-200mm G will do pretty well, but I really don't want or
  22. I posted this in the Fuji X forum, and there seemed to be a consensus that what I got wasn't true moire, but caused by the resolution of the monitor interacting with the pattern in the image. The reason being, in one of my images, I could see the moire at 16.6% size of the image on my monitor, but when I enlarged past this, it disappeared. The other image, it appeared at 33.3% size on the monitor, then disappeared upon enlarging past that. Of course, there was a lot of techno-speak which I thoroughly didn't understand! Ed, that link is useful. Next time I shoot something like that, I
  23. Thanks for the feedback. I'd say about 10% of my sales are Canada images. As mentioned, my collection is roughly 20% Canadian. Perhaps I'm just concentrating on the wrong subjects. I see that the parliament buildings in your home town are on the needs list. An Alamy search for "Ottawa parliament building" brings up almost 2000 results. But I guess there is always room for a couple more. Good luck.
  24. About 26% of my collection is of Canada. About 21% of my Alamy sales are of Canadian images.
  25. I don't think there is much of a market for posed model-facing-camera-putting-on-expression studio shots - you might get micro sales. There is no editorial content, commercial users now want images that idealise the ordinary/everyday. Packaging? Doubtful. Corporate communications? Ditto. See if you can envisage a usage for this kind of imagery. If you want to make good sales with a small number of images then using released models is the right way to go. I was very struck with this image: a bit high key, the play on pastel reds and blue, a meaningful sky. Transpose this style for other
