  2. green is quantitative based not quantitative. don't pay attention to it. i had a look at my stuff, 7% of my images are green, and they represent 0% of my sales. i have only sold "poor" discoverability images, because they were properly keyworded.
  3. One today low value * all my sales this month were below **
  4. Welcome Nilanjan, I have been submitting nature and wildlife pictures since 2016 and have almost 2000 pictures in my portfolio. There's plenty of nature photographers with Alamy so make sure your work stands out, edit ruthlessly, avoid submitting batches of similars, calibrate your monitor for colour and exposure accuracy, use histograms in Photoshop or Lightroom-many of your pictures are over saturated and/or under exposed, caption accurately using Latin names for species and take pictures of subjects you come to know well. The quality of your wildlife images count more than the qua
  5. Welcome Anna, I have been submitting nature and wildlife images since 2016 and have almost 2000 pictures. There's plenty of nature photographers with Alamy so make sure your work stands out, edit ruthlessly, avoid submitting batches of similars, calibrate your monitor for colour and exposure accuracy, caption accurately using Latin names for species and take pictures of subjects you come to know well. The quality of your wildlife images count more than the quantity-that is what will ensure sales.
  6. I have sold about 5+ images that are published in next years 2022 calendars. They are available to purchase now from book stores and garden centres but non of the images have appeared in my sales history as yet. According to Alamy there is a special arrangement with calendar manufacturers which means they don’t have to register an image use until March of the actual calendar year. So that’s 10% commission gone already even though the calendars were available to purchase in April 2021.
  7. Two small sales dated for 23rd showed up this morning, so just sneaked in for my 50% cut.
  8. Had a sale reported for $1.72. that's a whole 50p for me. Only another 8000 sales to go to pay for the over £4000 pounds worth of equipment used to take the image. I opted out of novel use because I didn't want these type of sales here. Time I think for Alamy to let us set a minimum amount for our images.
  9. 2 sales popped up yesterday, July 24 with the new contract. I think it's the first time I got reported sales on Saturday. It looked like Alamy wanted to wait the begin of the new contract before reporting them in my account! 😅
  10. Yes I did see that point, but further down the article it says. 'JPEG XL further includes features such as animation, alpha channels, layers, thumbnails, lossless and progressive coding to support a wide range of use cases including but not limited to photo galleries, e-commerce, social media, user interfaces and cloud storage,' reads the official overview. What the creators promise is superior image quality, a codec ratio smaller than the typical 20:1 to 50:1, and encoding plus decoding without hardware acceleration on mobile devices. Which I took to mean it will be lossless from an
  11. I've had 10 sales in the last three days. However, yesterday's sales have not updated in the dashboard yet. Guess Alamy are too busy with the new contract/leavers etc.
  12. as for this thread, no last minute 50% sales. end of an era of being treated at least like an equal. oh well.
  13. so they confirmed that this is a February sale, not a July sale? (keep this information for your record, may be useful next week, Alamy WILL back date sales) also the opt out info is wrong, They reopened op out due to the contract change, you were able to opt out in May.
  14. One of two low $$ sales that showed up today -- this one taken a couple of blocks from my front door (presentation use).
  15. if ctr don't matter to ranking then views don't matter and putting entire dictionary in tag fields maximizes sales with side effect of every image having the best discoverability, but discoverability isn't in the dictionary according to spell check
  16. This cappuccino with the pastry has been a repeat best seller. No other coffee sales, however.
  17. from sales report, it appears only partially corrected @Alamy The image that was no already paid that went un-cleared as now been brought back to cleared. The image that was paid last month, still shows un-cleared.
  18. Yes, I’ve had several $$$ sales reported this week, thank goodness. Still waiting for a book cover of a book published in May though.
  19. Probably Culture Trip. I’ve had a lot of those titchy sales. Try doing a Google image search
  20. Very dry here, unusually for me so far no sales or zooms. I suspect there will be a few at the end of the month from the usual publications that report then. Had begun to wonder if it was a result of me switching a fair amount of my content to editorial only and to disable PU, but I don't get all that many PUs and all but one i've ever sold is editorial use anyway so probably nothing in that.
  21. Close up of a small part of the giant Marcus Rashford mural in Withington, Manchester, England, United Kingdom, that was vandalised with abusive graffiti after England's Euro2020 football loss on July 11th, 2021. The mural was created by French-born street artist Akse P19 on the wall of the Coffee House Cafe on Copson Street. Marcus Rashford is a Manchester United football player. Akse fully repaired the damaged mural by 13th July, 2021.

  22. You couldn't certainly be forgiven for thinking there might be a conspiracy I am having a shocking month, just an endless series of personal use and presentation sales for the usual pittance If August returns to being the same as the months before this one - with many high value sales - I might just be a bit cynical about that
  23. So now we have an Alamy representative stating the the Download date is the date of sales, this is interesting and noted for future (not that future) references. Sorry Alamy but it can't be both ways
  24. I went FX in 2017 to improve my photography overall, but as far as Alamy goes I sell just as many DX and even early steam Pentax as I do high MP images. One of the things I've learned since starting stock photography is that an acceptable quality image of the thing they've searched is what brings sales rather that having the Wow! image, though of course there is a market for Wow! if you take such images, but perhaps not so much on Alamy. Does that make sense?
