  1. My ranking seems to have fallen badly over the last 6 months. I have been with Alamy for many years and have grossed a total of almost 350,000 US$ in sales. Is the value of a contributors overall sales included in their ranking and if not should it be ?
  2. Hi I noticed that number of zooms for my images reduced overnight by one (not sure about the views). Does not concern me particularly, but I struggle to image what could be the reason for this. Any ideas?
  3. Been patiently watching this site since joining last year. I got quite a few images past QC. But very limited zooms and sales. I certainly get more activity on other websites.......... Just lately i've having trouble getting past QC, I primary use an LX100.
  4. Hi everyone, Just a quick query, I have found one of my images online being used in an article here https://www.dn.se/sthlm/samtliga-kundvagnar-stulna-fran-systembolag/ That has been published on 20th August, however there is no record of this sale on my account, is there reason to be concerned? Is it possible for a singular sale to be delayed in registering on the account? Anyone else encounter this? Also, it's a bit strange that it's not credited to Alamy but IBL, which I have no idea what that is? Many thanks for any clues
  5. Hello everyone, I recently had a large royalty free sale refunded to the buyer, 7 days after it was downloaded. I was not informed by of the refund and only noticed it by chance. This has never happened before to me and was wondering if this is common among other contributors. Any info would be appreciated
  6. Hi Everyone - have had a few sales albeit with a low portfolio - I have recently had one sale of $12.56 so was expecting a debit of 50% from Alamy - however, my account reads 30% ($3.77) debit from Alamy and a further 40% ($5.02) Distributor commission - can anybody please explain why the double debit? thank you and best regards colin
  7. Hi, Four small sales today pushed me over the big 1000 sales milestone on alamy. I joined Feb 2010, so it took me just under 8 years and 7 months to get there. How long did it take you? Andy
  8. Hi, everyone I am Alamy contributor and I have question about difference in current cleared balance which is less than 50% of amount of sales to date. As I understand the commission is 50/50 and there is no taxes according to my tax form, so I don`t find any other information which will explain this difference. So please give me a link on this info or just explain me. Unfortunately I can not contact contributors@alamy.com because "Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender - Action: failed" Thank You for Your attention and answers in advance
  9. My last distributor sale was in June. Anyone else noticing a decline? Trend or just a blip of some kind? P.S. I usually have 2-4 distrib sales per month on average.
  10. After a couple of months contributing, I ---no, haven't had a sale, but---have got two zooms. Mom, is that you??? (Haven't figured out how to post images here yet.)
  11. hi guys...I know it takes time for zooms to convert to sales, but in your experience (I don't have my own data yet!) what have you seen as far as the ratio of zooms to sales? I have alot of zooms in the last few months and I am patiently (okay trying to be patient) waiting for some of them to turn into sales. Thanks for sharing. Mandy
  12. I am really posting this for the benefit of newbies or others with relatively few images on Alamy. I have only a relatively small number of Alamy images. Today it amused me the I have six zooms (which is as low as it has been for me for quite a while) and six sales in the last month; none of the zooms are the sales. Odd how things work sometimes. Perhaps some of this months zooms will be next months sales.
  13. I had a sale for a stitched panorama image drop in last night. I only uploaded it as I had processed it anyway. I wasn't thinking it would ever sell but there you have it. Have you had any luck with sales of panoramics?
  14. hello. I am curious if anyone can explain to me what it means when you have a certain amount in sales but it says you are owed a smaller amount? why is that number so different? Thank you.

  16. When I read threads about how few zooms turn into sales, I’m confused. A big percent of my zooms turn into sales. Sometimes a certain month is less, but on the whole, zooms bode well for me. Of my last 12 sales, 10 were zoomed. Its harder to evaluate looking at the zooms showing on my page right now because many times the sales take awhile to show up. All I can do is look at my sales and notice the ones that were zoomed. For me, the statements I often read here about how few zooms translate into sales makes me scratch my head. Am I alone here?

  17. With the introduction of the optional 'editorial only' box I went for it across all images earlier this year. Since then I have seen a measurable reduction in sales. I suspect that images were previously sold for commercial purposes despite me showning no releases for people or property. Basically I do not want any problems with my images being sold for commercial purposes in case anyone objects and a court case or other claims are launched. I actually do not care what they are used for as long as I don't get into trouble as a result thereof. Although I am behind first the user and then Alamy
  18. hello Forum I don't know how accurate it is but I was reading that portrait alignment is more suited to commercial photography than landscape. Is it worth shooting a subject in both alignments even if the subject doesn't necessarily demand it? Also does any other aspect ratio do particularly well in regards to stock sell-ability? Cheeers
  19. Just wondering if members would be willing to share what their % sales are "Personal Use" compared to, what might be termed "normal sales". For example sales for editorial, books, etc. I opted out of PU in the early days so have no way of checking this from my own sales figures. Thanks in advance for any information. Allan
  20. Looking at All of Alamy sales in ‘measures’ there are 11 sales for the search ‘alamytestimage’. Puzzled as to why anyone would search/buy using that search term?
  21. I don't have many images here yet, but I have already made 2 sales, which was probably more due to luck than anything! As expected, since then I have not made any further sales as of yet. My question is: do sales get affected by how active your account is? In other words, do you have to keep adding images to get more exposure or are search results not affected by your account activity? Theoretically, if you uploaded "the best" image of a particular subject, would it continue selling or would it get relegated to the bottom of search results as time goes by? T
  22. Hi, For medical reasons I haven't shot any new stock for a couple of months nor submitted anything to Alamy. Over this period my zooms have been in freefall. I don't know if that is a coincidence or not. How is everyone else's rolling zooms total for the month? Are they going strong or are you seeing a significant drop also? I may be wrong but I suspect Alamy may have implemented something that aggressively pushes you back in the search order if you slow or stop submissions. My zooms peaked in October 2017 at about 95 for the month (at the time I had b
  23. OK, a little (very) sarcastic title, but I've just received two sales for my lowest gross ever for a direct sale. I'm most certainly not going to mention the price, but I may have to start nicking sachets of ketchup and sugar if this goes on.
  24. I can't seem to get any sales, how can I start to get sales?
  25. To better understand RM vs RF battle i'd like to share my 2018 sales: - $$$ RM sales: 35% of total year revenues - $$ RM sales: 60% - $ RM sales: 5% I just started to sell RF on Alamy so i dont't have any sales at the moment . What's yours?
