  1. 3 sales popped in today mid $$ calendar high $ mid $ every little helps
  2. Add a splash of lager and make it a shandy. Live a little! 😎 Some calendar sales just dropped in - mid-$$ - including this shot of Mevagissey, a Cornish fishing village...
  3. Hi all, Hope everyone is well. I've opted out of distributor sales when the new contract with disappointing fees was unveiled. Looking now at my October sales I am still getting sales which have distributor commission on them. Is this right? Can the sales continue even though I've opted out and if so how long for after? Or do i need to contact Alamy? Many thanks!

  6. I've now 'enjoyed' a flurry of UKNS sales, so I could stretch to a lemonade!
  7. Two end-of-the-month sales popped up today, this one a rare (for me) UK newspaper license (low $$).
  8. Could this explain the very sudden, worrying and (to me) inexplicable plummet in my CTR? Over the past couple of weeks I have had days with no zooms or views which was pretty well unheard of before and I was always slightly above the Alamy CTR average. I have uploaded fresh images over the past month, so it's not as if I have been 'inactive'. Sales seem to be pretty average, however, though for an average of $10 an image before everyone else gets their cut - though that trend has been happening for a long time now.
  9. I have noticed, in the last couple of months, that I am seeing fewer and fewer U.S. sales coming into my account. Just to be clear, I am talking about U.S. based buyers not U.S. content. I scour though about a dozen U.S. publications each month, looking for Alamy image uses and I am finding fewer and fewer uses. Not sure of the reason why, could it be the competitive pricing from the micros or maybe buyers trying other sources? U.S. buyers tend to pay more than buyers based in other countries so I am seeing fewer higher value sales. I hope the new Alamy/PA marketing can help change this tr
  10. I would think that what Alamy is doing is directly following on from the subscription deals ( or photo packs) that the competition introduced long ago and which they no doubt feel are required to try and maintain market share. Fortunately, even now, most of my routine Alamy sales would be classed as 'extended licences' in micro-stock terminology. Even PU licences are way higher than the 'normal' micro licence though they do offer 'perpetuity'. Country: Worldwide Usage: Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts. Non-commercial use only, not fo
  11. Yup! I have had four sales to date with that POD site for an average of £19/sale. Joined them Christmas last year. Only 344 pictures with them too. Not put any photos with them for some time now. Must get going again. Allan
  12. Here's an interesting comparison with a UK based POD: "In the last 365 days we have paid out £180,155.49 in commissions, with 8,208 sales" That = 21.95 Average Commission per sale in the last year! Phil
  13. My gross average price since I joined in 2006 is $40.48 (total income divided by total sales).
  14. I pdf’d that when it was posted. Oddly this month so far is my best ever for views and zooms. Could always do with more and higher priced sales though, although I know there’s more to be reported.
  15. Our one-day-late Thanksgiving dinner was today, and everything was wonderful. I was up at 6:15, had my coffee, read the paper and had my two pumpkin pies in the oven by 8. Took them and the rest of my dishes to my daughter’s. By the time I came home at 4 pm, I felt a vampire had been draining my blood. Hopefully a good night’s sleep will renew me. A nice thing is that I’m having a decent sales month, better than usual. Never fear…usually when that happens, it’s followed by a rotten month. I used to think that sales would just steadily get better, but this is a fickle business, and no
  16. I recognize the central point of this discussion, lower prices at the end. This week alsof had a final sale of 0,21 cts. After a month with sales of 1.50, 6 and 11, it will be my lowest per image sale ever in the last 8 years. Call it microstock or whatever, the net-result is disappointing and a middlefinger to all photographers doing their best to produce fine and special images for the market. Beside prices the 50/50 deal also changed to 40/60, which also felt like' 'take-it-or leave it'.
  17. PA OWN Alamy. They are the same company. As long as Alamy continues to have a live news feed - and I certainly hope that continues - and has staff dedicated to running that news feed, it is in nobody's interest that they don't do a good job so as not to compete with another part of the same company. As long as Alamy continue in the business of news it is in everyone's interest that they do it as well as possible. When we turn up in Westminster and see that Stefan Rousseau is there we know we all know a) we're in the right place and b) he's probably going to get the sales. But he isn
  18. Refreshing this thread….a surprisingly good month for newspaper sales which came in today. Seven $$$ and a rash of small ones. Over $1000 in total it will be a good month with other sales too, probably second highest all year.
  19. I got the Roomba i3 that empties itself, but if you can afford it or get a good deal, the i6 or is it i7?? Might be even better. Although I sure couldn’t see anything wrong with the way mine cleaned today. It normally was $600 and I got it for $400. I got mine from Walmart, but Kohl’s, Amazon and other places have been having deals also. I do the same thing, Michael. I got my air fryer and Roomba for myself since I no longer can hint to a spouse. These sales are a good time to do it.
  20. Not so much. I was just looking for the silver lining. As my CTR is not very good, I believe having those 5-10 tiddler sales a month probably help me get more views which may or may not lead to decent sales. Don't know how Alamy algorithm works, but I believe number of sales is a factor.
  21. Me, too. Some days I’ve had more than 10 zooms, when normally it’s only a few.
  22. While doing some research I discovered that when I click on on image in Safari and the same image in Firefox, the sales pages are different. A bit disappointing that for Rights Managed in Safari, the customer can`t make up their own mind about the terms of a license, but has to contact Alamy through a supplied phone number or email in a drop down window labelled Build a License to get an instant quote about volume pricing deals... No wonder sales are slow.
  23. Can anyone please remind me when Alamy suggested the reduction in views and zooms data in Measures would come to an end and normal service would resume? I seem to remember it was the beginning of December? Thanks Kumar
  24. Since mid 2020, I am only credited with sales on the last few days of the month. This seems odd. Sales are for various uses and entities, from websites, texts, kid's books, editorial and museums. Has this happened to anyone else?
