  1. no refunds but i am through complaining on here; the world is changing and we all know why stock has fallen; it's no good to complain, it won't change anything. If you like photography keep shooting; if you're addicted you will keep uploading even for $1 sales.
  2. I also have one of the similar 33$ sales popping in today. Curious. Loadsa refunds but more sales, maybe a deal done on a price reduction to get the extra sales?
  3. Exactly the same license details here, same refund... Also have one of the similar $33 sales that popped up at the same time. License details on that one are slightly different ("Editorial web use, multiple placement; rights granted in line with customer agreement which may vary from invoice details above."), though date range is exactly the same. May be the same client? -Jason
  4. I can understand the straight refunds to key customers. It's when an image gets refunded and then re-sold for half the price that I find puzzling. It seems like an odd way of doing business, but perhaps there is a good reason for it (?). My understanding is that Alamy record sales at the earliest opportunity. Once the price is finalised the price is adjusted to include any discounts. The alternative would be to defer the reporting of sales until the price is finalised. Makes sense to me. dov
  5. Same here. Only difference in licence- personal screensaver use removed. Ho hum. You know you're making a lot more sales when some turn into un-sales. Still, bright side, it's only minus $22 net. Not good to have a negative balance for August so soon though.
  6. Same here. I just checked and four $75.73 have been refunded and re-sold for $30.74. I now have an $88 negative total for August, whatever that means. On the plus side, a $33 sale popped up at the same time as the refunds. I guess $30 is the new $75. I had a $33 sale come in too. I guess I should be happy that I just a few bucks north of being negative! Let's hope those $33 sales don't get re-posted at $16.50. I think I am laughing and crying at the same time!

  9. Two more refunds tonight, two $75.73 sales now down to $30.74 each. There must be a half off sale going on!
  10. Sorry to hear about the problems you've had with the Fujifilm X-E1, but it's fortuitous for me, because I was considering exactly the same move - sell my D700 (which isn't being used much) and get the X-E1 as a 2nd camera. I am very reluctant to let the D700 go because it is such an awesome camera and compliments the D800 in many ways. But two heavy bodies with battery grips and the bulky fast glass means I rarely take both anywhere. Did you consider the X-PRO1 (which I understand is a bit more robust) or the NEX7 (which Trey Ratcliff seems to love)? I'd be interested in anyone's experiences w
  11. Had two refunds totalling $199 which sent me into negative total sales this month for the first time ever, disappointing, discouraging, but not the end of the world.
  12. Yup, 4 today refunded and replaced with 30$ sales Kumar
  13. As I said in another thread: did you check the calculator for the original sales? wim
  14. Having had five decent $75 sales at the end of July they have all be refunded and replaced with $30 sales today. Anyone else had the same?
  15. In the last 12 months I've had a $500, a $440, a $300, a $273, two $253s, a $243, $230, $220, $200, a couple of $180s and a few other 3figure sales. In the last three months things haven't been very healthy.
  16. Does this mean Alamy will have to spend MORE time policing the forum to make sure no one talks about certain subjects outside of the restricted section? And what do they do when someone does talk dirty outside the restricted section? Or will it be up to the red arrow brigade to bombard them anonymously, thereby beating them anonymously into compliance? Does it restrict any talk at all about the newspaper scheme? Or only some of the talk about the newspaper scheme? What about complaints about distributors? Questions about distributors but without mentioning prices? Praise for distributo
  17. Yes thanks Ed. I pretty much made my my mind up after my usual nerdy going through just about every stat I could find. In the end, it came down to the obvious basics of picture quality, the fact that it zooms and the Fuji we have is a fixed equivalent of 35mm. And last of all, purely because it's so darn small.
  18. Everyone is sourcing images the cheapest way they can these days. The BBC used to use Getty a lot (still do use them), but also source images from Geograph, Flickr, Google (street view, maps, etc.), mobiles from the public and they increasingly use stills from videos. While all this is worrying to some degree, I think that some businesses/organisations will increasingly try to remove themselves from the mass of info available on the Internet by marking themselves out as exclusive/premier in some way and move over to subscription models to access certain (if not most) content.

  19. I never see my image sales reported on this thread, so figured I'd do my own reporting Thanks to Google Alerts; Bank levy to raise $733m as Rudd government strives for surplus The Guardian Photograph: Richard McDowell/Alamy. A new levy on Australia's banks will raise $733m, adding to a tobacco tax rise worth $5.3bn to be unveiled in the Rudd ...
  20. Yep and they recently cut most of their prices in half. I think the dip in shutterstocks stock value had very little to do with Yuri, he forgets to mention that shutterstocks shares have only been available for a short period of time and had frankly outpaced the sales of the company, and since he wrote his blog the share price is now higher than ever. I suspect the real reason is his portfolio of images sell a lot less than they used to since there is now so much quality work of the same type on micros, partly due to him publicly showing other photographers which of his images sell so well
  21. Hi Tarsier, Thanks for the apples-to-apples comparison. The difference between this July and last July for you clearly has nothing to do with summer vacations, number of images, keywording, or anything else that is unchanged between these two months, and even without knowing what a normal amount of monthly variation is for you, I'm willing to bet that the increase in views and decrease in zooms you've seen are not due to random fluctuations. Although your sales are (roughly) normal now, I think you're right to be concerned about future sales. The big question is What has changed betwee
  22. I had four of those $75.73 sales (all images of Latin America) on the last day of July. It must have been a bulk order of some kind. All mine were photos that have sold before. I had two $75.73 sales, one on July 31st and one on August 1st. One was taken in Memphis, TN and the other, Israel.

  24. DAILY FINANCE August 2, 2013 Most Back-to-School Sales Tax Holidays Are This Weekend CW7CFY Photographer: Marjorie Kamys Cotera/Bob Daemmrich Photography http://www.dailyfinance.com/on/back-to-school-sales-tax-holidays-this-weekend/
  25. Six sales (five on the last day of July), one distributor... Gross US$ 422.05... All sales were for 75.73 (strange number) and the distributor sale was for 43.30. Can't complain... And August has started well with one sale on the first day. The strangest thing is that only two of these sales were ever zoomed... at least in the last 8 months...
