  1. Can Alamy PLEASE add a warning in very large letters for people about to buy an image for personal use that it is the license to the image they are buying and not the drugs / beer / Ferrari or whatever it is in the picture? For example "BEFORE YOU AGREE TO BUY, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR USE OF THIS IMAGE, NOT THE OBJECT IN THE PICTURE. WE CANNOT OFFER A REFUND TO CUSTOMERS WHO MAKE THIS STUPID MISTAKE" (You might want to leave out the word 'stupid')
  2. Hi, can anyone here (or from Alamy) tell me why it appears to take so long for an image sale to appear on my Contributor Dashboard? Twice in the past year I have had instances where I have spotted my image use (online, in print and on TV) days before I have had notification of it's sale. The instance where it happened on TV was particularly worrying, as it just suddenly appeared on a prime-time TV programme on the BBC without any warning, and actually felt quite creepy. Is there no way that users can be forewarned of image use, or at least kept up-to-date with image sales as they happen?
  3. The database seems to have updated overnight this time, as has the dashboard, though zooms not yet. It's an odd disconnection between the various parts of the system.
  4. Hi all, I realise stock prices on here have gone through the floor, but I didn't know Alamy were allowed to give them away. I had a sale appear the other day showing as RM $0. I looked in my sales history and it is actually a newspaper sale for $0.18. As this is in effect too small an amount to pay me for Alamy have effectively given my image away. Has anyone else had such a low price?
  5. Alamy sent an email a few months ago saying that they are making changes to their computers etc that would affect the dashboard until 2022. Sales would still be published but not zooms etc.

  7. A photo of mine (see above) has been used on a cat calendar. It is credited to me and Alamy, but looking at my Alamy sales history, this does not appear anywhere. Has this happened to you, and if so, did Alamy sort everything out to your satisfaction? I have contacted Alamy about this, but I would like to hear from you if you've had a similar experience.
  8. I've had some really good sales this year - and then I get this today! Worldwide RM in perpetuity any size image editorial website and social medai $0.21 That's the worst ever!
  9. Just beaten my record for the lowest sale amount ever - $0.18!!!! I'll get $0.07 net. It's one of my best sellers so don't want to post it here. Country: United Kingdom Usage: Editorial, Use in syndicated editorial news features, single context only. Includes archive rights in-perpetuity. Media: Newspaper - national Print run: Unlimited Insert: more than 25 Placement: National Image Size: up to full area Start: 18 November 2021 Duration: In perpetuity Mixed feelings though as it
  10. I noticed the mention of syndication (by Ian) in another thread and that made me think I have never really considered the effects of syndication and the Alamy RM standard license terms before. So how does it work, even if one company "owns" another company they are still two separate companies are they not? Can, for example AP (or PA) pick up an image and then syndicate to all their associated companies? Is there a special license clause for this? It has never occurred to me before. I raise this because, like others have mentioned, my largest "sales" this year have be
  11. Yikes! Factor in possible "other fees," and your net could end up in negative territory.šŸ˜§ I haven't seen any of these super-low sales. It seems that it's mostly UK contributors who are reporting them. Fortunately, UK newspapers don't like my images. I've had three editorial website tiddlers this month, but otherwise prices have been OK by current standards, including a $$$ TV use.
  12. Recently I set myself a year to continue submissions. Then I revue wether it's worthwhile continuing. If our commission drops again or the majority of sales are for $.18 or ms prices then I'll bring forward the decision.
  13. Think this is the first time I have sold a photo of myself. Full price US presentation use. Sales seem to be trickling through every few days.
  14. Perhaps there could be an option to opt out of package sales?
  15. Just had two sales at the $0.18 price mark. This is not why I take photos. National newspapers should be paying more than this! Iā€™d rather not have the sale.

  16. I've had better day with sales, though the 40% rankles. I contacted another, fresh looking agency. Guess what - their commission for RM is 30% !!!!
  17. 4 sales today each one just under mid $$ 2DYBP9A 2F4GDPJ 2FMXMJG 2F6D9WP Same use for all 4 Usage: Single company, editorial magazine, print and or web, multiple use 5 years Very happy especially as they are all of my home town.... Carol
  18. the "Net Revenue Sales report" (AKA Download Sales Report) usually gives details. My last one was Reversal of Affiliates commission (much smaller), but i think those are only on month end reconciliations
  19. I believe that the number of sales is a factor. Is it a factor of what?
  20. Eight of those Finnish editorial website distro sales with low $ net. Money is nothing, but I suppose they help in getting my images viewed. Anyways, this is my favourite. Dilapidated Villa Bredablick or Meilahden kartano in Meilahti district of Helsinki, Finland.
  21. Could indicate the end of stock photography for contributors is accelerating if not balanced with much higher value sales.
  22. So far this month sales two distribution sales and another small sale for the following images. 2B15HBW 2FK4H3X 2E1NAYY Helen
  23. Usage: Personal use. Media: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home use. High $. It has been viewed lately without zooms with terms like "double bass jazz" and "double%20bass%20cool". Obviously unrelated to personal use. Anyways, never sold a B&W-image before. Mitja Tuurala playing double bass and smoking on stage with Pietarin Spektaakkeli at Valli Festival in Helsinki, Finland.
  24. Beautiful photos Ana, a lot of my sales come from my annual 3 week holiday in Spain so plenty of scope for sales for you, think it is a beautiful country once you get in the countryside, trying to decide which part to visit next Spring?
