  1. Had a few refunds recently too but sales are up too.......though values not great.
  2. Yes, John, that dam you mentioned broke this morning and now I show 1, count them one, zoom. More important, I think, my sales have been normal for my collection size and the prices have been good. I just now tried to check the Alamy site again and I got an error connection page instead.
  3. Not yet for me - my Alamy Measures standard view shows 3 sales and 1 zoom.
  4. Because nobody really knows. That's why Alamy doesn't edit its collection. Jill With all due respect Jill, that is simply not the case. Sure there will always be the 'left field' shot used but it's quite clear enough so that many agencies spend a good deal of money on finding out what clients are after. My point in the thread was if you go and actually look at what clients are using, you can make pretty educated guesses on the areas they want and the amount of imagery they want in those areas. I mentioned swans, sure clients will use some images of swans but I can assure you th
  5. They havn't been given a reason for failure this time.(Russell) They weren't a re submission at all. Totally fresh photos. Previously I emailed them and they said one image lacked definition . It was taken on a misty morning and meant to be 'soft' . My opinion is that Alamy are sorting out the 'second division' by failing submissions hoping people will stop submitting. I accept I'm in that league . Payment for stock pictures these days is minute so I won't get into a sweat about it. . My print sales income far exceeds what I can earn from stock and no one cares what camera I use if they lik
  6. Earlier today I questioned whether there had been any sales reported given that measures was in a state of meltdown, well I think I can answer that one myself now because my biggest ever sale has just popped into my "Net revenue" page. You folks may get these regularly but I don't, so thanks Alamy for the smile you've put on my face tonight. Fingers crossed for no refunds of the $188
  7. ...fundamentally you need to be shooting material which is wanted by clients... Fairly obvious, isn't it? That should be a sticky here. GI Why doesn't somebody start a thread called 'What do clients want?' Because nobody really knows. That's why Alamy doesn't edit its collection. Jill With all due respect Jill, that is simply not the case. Sure there will always be the 'left field' shot used but it's quite clear enough so that many agencies spend a good deal of money on finding out what clients are after.

  8. I spoke too soon Week by week my new work is getting around ten times the views per image than my old stuff. That must be a positive sign, just means I effectively have an effective portfolio of about 300 images (but growing rapidly). Now need to start seeing some sales on it.
  9. Double well done! Only one for me thus far, but the net value beats the three sales of last month.

  11. Put the end of the months date in the "to" box. Sales that come though on this today will appear in summary sheet tomorrow.
  12. Odd. I only see items in 'net revenue' when Iv'e been paid. Sales appear in 'summary' and 'balance of account' first, even before measures.
  13. I use a MacBook Air, so for me I drag the photo to my desktop, then Command-I to view the metadata. Some buyers show the photograph ID in one of those fields (sometimes not always). Thanks for your help in finding and reporting Alamy sales.
  14. Ha! My images have just appeared as well....the two seperate batches I sent that had not appeared have been combined as one. Now....about all of those reported sales that I'm missing
  15. I'm wondering if sales are up for the month, quarter, or year to date? I'd also be interested to know whether anyone's had a sale reported today in any form given that measures has thrown a wobbly?
  16. I use Vuescan for scanning transparencies, albeit with an Epson scanner rather than Nikon, and the software is easy to use, and produces excellent results, with the multi-exposure setting dragging a bit more detail from the shadows. (However, I prefer Epson Scan for negative scans , whether b/w or colour.) Generally, I now only scan transparencies and negatives for my own personal use, and if it has commercial potential I submit the scan to Alamy. I now only submit 35mm scans to Alamy via the Archival route due to QC concerns, and I have a separate pseudo for my archival images – sales are o
  17. We've made a lot of changes recently and we're looking at the effect on activity etc but the good news is the activity that directly correlates with sales, e.g downloads and purchases, are up. So, no need to panic but we are doing further investigations. Alamy
  18. I plan to give priority to some medium format film shot only a few years ago. The film is in good condition and the scanner has ICE, so they should pass QC. As far as my archive of thousands of slides; I'll only try some of the very best. Even then I'll be anxious about them passing. Most of my recent sales are of 35mm scans, so customers can certainly use them.
  19. Hang in there, Arletta, you have some nice sale worthy images and a good variety. Keep adding and the sales will come.
  20. The details of my sale were: Country: Brazil Usage: Editorial Media: Textbook - print and e-book Print run: up to 5,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1/2 page Start: 01 June 2013 End: 01 June 2014 The original sale as identical except country was United States and print run 10,000. Both were distributor sales.
  21. I, for one (the only one?), was sorry to see the agency close, because I had made a few nice sales with them, including one for more than I've ever received at Alamy. And the sold images were pretty normal stock stuff. But I haven't dealt with them since they closed it.
  22. About 1,200, and, like you, I've noticed recent sales have been looking healthier (with the exception of yesterday's 3x $6.33)
  23. I don't think there are too many who have a specialised subject like yours Mike, are there? I think 30+ sales for the same image on Alamy must be quite unique.
  24. 778 sales so far with $96,223 so far since 2001. Was hoping to pass $100k this year but I don't think that will happen... Never say never though I guess...
  25. Couldn't agree more. In my very limited experience - 6 sales to date - I've not been competing with 50 million. I've been competing with 20; 66; 0; 3 (all mine); 29 and 4 other images. That narrows down the odds. It does depend on good keywording, of course, and buyers searching for specific subjects - but that's what they do on Alamy.
