  1. Conde Naste sales popped in today, so that may have been your buyer. And my AOL sales appeared on the third this month. But to answer your question, I had six sales on January third which is my record.
  2. This probably falls into the "general positivity" category, so I thought I would share. I had 12 sales (RM, non-distributor) pop up today, which I believe is the most I've ever had in one day. Mind you, they were low. My net -- assuming no refunds -- will be about $210. Still, it was encouraging to see the high volume since it compensates somewhat for falling prices. Hopefully, this is the start of a trend. Eleven of the sales look to be to the same buyer. Just wondering, what is the most sales you've had thru Alamy on a single day?
  3. I don't dare consult the death clock in case it tells me that I'm already dead. Seriously, I'm in the back 25 now (if Lady Luck is with me). I actually had one of those big (these days) 2039 textbook sales pop up a few days ago. Please keep them coming, Alamy, and I'll be sure to leave you something in my will.
  4. The newspaper scheme does give you regular sales, albeit for a pittance. I assume that this assists your ranking which can lead to other more profitable sales. (I have just received notification of a license for a popular scheme image to a non scheme paper for about 5x the scheme fee; not the first time this has happened). Of course we don't know if these small value sales make much impact on ranking, the magic formula remains a mystery. Currently in but considering my options, it's not simple.
  5. Thanks, Jill. No, I didn't know. No, I think you are right, John. They probably have (taken / been given) the right to do so. But from the photographer's point of view it is a violation and a giving away of rights. I only sell very few photos to British newspapers, price is low and the sales always result in massive uses other places that are difficult to deal with. I think I will leave the newspaper scheme, it is not worth it..
  6. And vice versa. I mostly supply RF images. I've had about a dozen RF images sold with usage restrictions identical to RM. Clever sales department. But I agree: on Alamy license type doesn't make a big difference, although for me, RF license prices tend to be higher. Just curious, don't you have to have property and model releases to sell mostly RF (if it's buildings, trademarks, and people)? Yes. If images contain people and I have releases I go with RF. If the image contains unreleased people, private property or trademarks (that can't be removed) it's RM. Buildings are a

  10. Paul, look up the 10,000 hour rule. Its an idea but its not far off the mark. As for training, books etc. Look at how you progressed in your day job, mentoring, evaluation, feedback, measures, results, training, books. See how much of that is actually training (courses) and books. Very little. Nothing prepares you for your first peer review. I remember my first code review when I was first out of university, I had a degree and was completely shattered by it. Wind forward 10 years and sitting in the editors office when I got my first months review there. I learned more in both those hours tha

  13. Having a varied selection of attractive, appealing (esp. at thumbnail size) and saleable images (as you have) always helps! Well done on your sales so far (many more to come, I'm sure) and welcome to the forum .

  15. In the wider market (Alamy is slightly different with all the schemes), there's been a general move in commercial for most work to be RF unless it really has some merit to go as RM. It's been a trend for many years but really quantified with recent Getty moves. RF is easier for agencies to sell and to distribute as there's no rights management associated with it. There's still a demand for RM but the images have to be special, there has to be some bargaining power on the sales dept's side when they are asking for a client to pay significant monies. I set all my basic commercial work to RF

  22. Hi All Been watching the posts and am new to the forum, so this is my first post. I don't believe there's a magic number of images or how long you've been with Alamy, if you've the right image and it's keyworded properly it'll get picked up - it's just luck then if it fits what people are looking for. I signed up with Alamy in July '13, have around 450 images uploaded and made 7 sales so far, with other images zoomed. That said I could go the rest of the year without making a sale or having an image zoomed - but I sincerely hope not!! Best Martin
  23. If the average for all contributors was 0.49 then Total zooms for Paul Chambers: 71 and Top performing pseudonym: PAUL CHAMBERS LANSDSCAPE IMAGES (CTR: 0.76) are both above average. These are the figure in the month. Average CTR for Paul Chambers: 0.22 is, I believe, a cumulative total which is below average. dov

  25. An excessive noise rejection, eh? Look at the noise on today's Homepage alphabet soup image. It's very noisy. I would not have submitted that image. Since that image is a controlled setup, there really isn't a good reason for it to be that noisy. The alphabet soup is Stockimo. So all rules go overboard. Which may be a very good thing if Stockimo images are selling well. Until now there have been very little reports about Stockimo sales. I would be very much in favour of a free pass for those images that are really appealing, but somehow don't make the technical requirements. Maybe se
