  1. I don't have time to go into detail at the moment, but I see no indication in the stats available through "All of Alamy" that there has been any notable drop-off in customer activity, views, zooms, or CTR this month. My own zooms dropped from an average of more than 13 a month (from January through August of this year) to only a single zoom in September (by far my worst month for zooms since I've been keeping track), and October hasn't been much better. I really wish I could attribute this to some malfunction in Alamy Measures, but so far it looks like everything is working just fine. Sales fo
  2. Increasing quantity decreases individual sales, nothing surer. Quality is a little more open and depends on how it's measured. My understanding that QC here is technical quality only and, on that basis (excluding the eye behind the camera), better hardware and software inevitably results in "better" pictures. Personally, I feel the eye is more important than the camera but I'm not running a stock agency.
  3. The default view for the month to date under 'Your images' in AlamyMeasures 2.1. So today that would be your zooms as recorded from 23rd September - 22nd October.
  4. Happens in all lines of work David. My PC repair business went pear shaped the second people could search Google for the answer. Then Microsoft made it super simple to install Windows. Repair your boot sector? Yeah, do that from the CD in two secs. IT guy? who spent £2000 on Microsoft training and has a fancy MCSA card to prove it? Nah you don't need him anymore. Surprised to read this Paul, have been working in IT myself for 16 odd years and know a lot of people doing very well doing mobile PC repairs. Though a lot of them have transitioned to supporting small businesses and essentially
  5. Can't say that I have noticed any great drops,zooms are steady but not huge,ctr consistent and currently at 0.54.Sales also ok,one last week for $150,same the week before and one this morning for $180,surrounded by a few over the last two weeks for the normal $30-$40 so,it's encouraging to see that reasonably priced licences are still to be had....
  6. It pays to moan! A zoom popped in yesterday making it SIX rolling zooms now! and CTR a heady 0.17!! Still no sales though, and this despite a 25% increase in number of images this year alone. John.
  7. Not bad month, zooms dropped a bit from the beginning, about 45 to about 30 now. Sales so far 5 but plenty of searches on ref numbers (zoomed and non zoomed). Looking ok.
  8. I guess misery loves company...I've dropped from a depressingly low CTR to no CTR this week. I have some images in QC that I'm hopeful will produce some zooms but I think its past time for a wholesale review and revision of my key words (for entire portfolio).
  9. Monthly figures seem a bit short to look at a trend - last quarter (4 months to date) 37,000 views, 264 zooms, 87 sales (first two months averaged 30 sales a month - last two 15ish sales a month - so something seems to have kicked in) I can see that views and zooms have remained pretty consistent - but sales have dropped badly in last two months - sales values have as well. Just under 5,000 images - should get paid alright again this month but there is consistently $1,000 plus awaiting payment. Fair number of Distributor and Scheming Newspapers payments under $10 so don't think I'm doing w
  10. Sorry to rock the boat, but 44 rolling zooms is my best to date, while 3 reasonable sales for this month so far is about my average. With 30 million images available, and individual collections of a few thousand, there will be lean as well as good times. No doubt I will be feeding on humble pie some time soon! Agree that the editor is a problem!
  11. I hope there is something wrong and someone is busy fixing it. I sometimes wonder if my sales are being credited elsewhere. Worst month in 2 years but Remaining optimistic. Regards Craig AND CAN SOMEONE FIX THIS CHUFFING EDITOR!! Rolling zooms at 14, but only 4 of those are this calendar month - and those early on in the month. No sales . The only ray of light I can see is that the search terms I see in AlamyMeasures for My Images have resulted in very few zooms at all, so that it's clearly not just me. OK - a very small ray of light... From what I can ascertain, the v
  12. Rolling zooms sitting at 18 was rolling in at 36, had no reported sales since 23/09, CTR is 0.38. No sales at all yet this month, I was averaging 4 a month. 5 rolling zooms this month, lowest since October 2012. CTR 0.14 at the moment, my lowest ever CTR was 0.13 6 years ago. So not a good month for me. John. I hope there is something wrong and someone is busy fixing it. I sometimes wonder if my sales are being credited elsewhere.

  13. Yes, I've been scratching my head about this too. I've been consistently close to the Alamy average for CTR for some 2 and a half years, ever since I joined. Last month CTR was a little down at 0.46, but I did better than expected on sales (a whole 4 sales). Then October came and no zooms at all, not a one. Views have remained about the level I would normally expect (around 1300-1400 per month) but not a single zoom on any of them. It could be a statistical blip. It could also be the gods of stock photography having a laugh by giving me a hopeful September then pulling the rug f
  14. Staggering indeed. I think I'd fall off my chair if that popped up on my sales. I'd need to give myself a stab

  16. Hello everybody, I am still waiting for my 10.000 dollar sale. How is your luck? Mirco
  17. First week and a half of this month - 14 zooms and three sales. Pretty good for me. Since then nothing - no zooms and no sales. Anybody else having the same? Rolf
  18. I would add some Polish keywords, too. I have had more than a few sales searched for in the native language of the scenes in question, in one case by a non-native.
  19. I have had sales posted in net revenue from 6am in the morning to as late as 18.15 in the evening. Regards Craig
  20. The earliest notifications on Sales available to a contributor are found in My Alamy: Sales information. For example, a sale that first appeared today, Monday, in my AlamyMeasures 2.1: Your images, had already appeared sometime Friday under Sales information: Summary of items sold. - Ann
  21. I have just been chasing up a shot that the Daily Mail published in July and hasn't been reported in my sales yet. MS said some of the papers only report the shots they have used every 3 months so you may have a little wait. Dave
  22. I found also few photos of mine but not yet reported. It can take some months. And about sales it was said before....you need to upload much more the see regularity. . Keep on going... feed me more. Mirco
  23. I have so many sales every day that i can not remember if it is real time or not..... Kidding .... You will see them after Alamy refresh. Mirco
  24. I get zooms a lot on images that people have had a direct hit on my stuff. Who ever it is then zooms it a day later. Nothing ever shows up on sales. Baffles the life out of me.
  25. Hi all Do sale's get reported in real time or when the your image's data is refreshed ? Thanks Dave
