  1. June and July have been good, depending on one's definition of 'Good' that is. For me, around $200.00 gross each month is good with about 1300 images on-line. I've noticed a distinct upward trend in RM pricing, even managed to score a $103.00 RM in June. Zooms and views are way up too. No doubt the pendulum will swing the other way now for a few months, it usually does. Richard McDowell Perth West Oz
  2. Not a good one for me either. Refunds with immediate re-sales, some lowish stuff and two just under 200 US-$ each. On a positive note, I've already bagged one sale for August ... or so it would seem. Waiting on a commercial sale to come through (fingers crossed) and a couple of unreported uses that are being chased for ages.
  3. Michael, I haven't had any $5.95 sales yet. Should I feel left out?
  4. Looks like the $27 and $29 HuffPost sales stopped in June but now we all seem to be getting these $5.95 sales. Never thought I would long for the HuffPost sales.
  5. Not too good, 3 sales at a grand total of $ 138 Rolf
  6. I agree, the current system is too inflexible given that sales and fees are now all over the place. I'm not sure that a lower threshold alone is the answer. There will always be those who want the threshold lowered even further and those who want it raised. That's why I think that a "Request Payment" button that could be be pushed or not pushed at the end of each month would be a better solution. +1

  8. ....with images from a couple of near-monopolies of mine. In one case it's not the actual best-seller, though. That's still near the bottom where it always was. Still, the Guardian keep buying it. So it's not just the image, it's based on sales as well. Both are quite workmanlike and one is distinctly ordinary. But it was raining that day.
  9. BME, four sales for total gross $852. All three-digi sales, highest $337.50. I refused to count a $5.95 sale somehow sneaked in, even though I opted out a while back.
  10. Again about average (better than below average!). I had 20 sales for $1,467 gross. High $180 and low $5.95 for an average of $74 per sale.
  11. I had a record number of sales, but none over $100. My sales this month were all nu or newspapers, with just two magazines slightly higher, average just $16 gross. Although the Huff Post sales weren't generous, they would have lifted my average for July. I do think Alamy should turn down deals if the customer demands too big a discount, as at current prices I'm losing money when you look at the cost of running a car.
  12. 5 sales - two of which popped up this morning. Highest - $102.26, lowest $7.44, total = $264.86.
  13. In addition to the complex algorithms (and don't they love those) James quote "The search engine will also mix some results around to give everyone a fair chance, particularly if you are just starting out and have the median rank." so how do you guys compensate for a weird extra allowance for new contributors with median ranking given in the interest of fairness ? I genuinely accept that the best way of improving your ranking is give them good sellable images and keyword them tightly - quoting to yourself what the buyer would key in - in just two or three words - to find their image - th
  14. 5 sales, about average for me. One sale of $221 was refunded and later appeared as $72 sale. Patrick
  15. 39 licences, highest $210, lowest $5.95. Best month ever for zooms In newspaper scheme, not in NU. Shame about the lack of Huffs Kumar
  16. Above average sales at above average prices and above average zooms. I bet this month will be rubbish. Well done Philippe, most impressive. dov
  17. I had 3 sales by the 5th July and thought it was going to be a record month, but only 1 sale subsequently means that it was a lower than average month after all with 4 in total. Only $110 gross (lowest $5.95 highest $52.06) so that is below average too. Record number of rolling views for the month (4689) but below average zooms (16-24). All in all, could do better. John.
  18. Awful until last 2 days, was looking like 2 sales for $14 Ended up 8 sales for $268.80 including 5 @ $5.95
  19. Spooky! Same here, 2 decent sales in June and nothing in July . . . . . . must upload more Alan
  20. 3 Sales so not the best in terms of volume but returned $300 so better than average value. Good zooms and quite a few on reference numbers that are yet to convert.... Not bad, overall a steady improvement. Hopefully this will continue!
  21. 4 sales 135.60 gross 6000 photos = rock bottom. My worst performing platform. My July return per image for the month Alamy 0.0083 Getty 0.29 Shutterstock 0.4 I made almost as much from shutterstock from 100 photos as I did with 6000 in Alamy.
  22. 5 licences $174 gross, but including two distributor sales, so not much in the kitty for me.
