  1. Blimey... i made more sales than Greenberg.... that's a first km
  2. I did an advanced search for my images and noticed for the first time that there was a "Chat now" invitation on the right of the screen. Interesting. Wonder if it will help sales. Paulette
  3. I've spent a lot of time photographing in Mexico and make quite a few sales there. It's a rapidly growing market. Unfortunately, however, the prices tend to be on par with Brazil and through distributors to boot.
  4. Despite being locked up in the sin bin for most of October, I had a very good month with 12 RM sales for $1005 gross. This is the first time in a while that I've edged into four-figures territory, so I'm a happy Halloweener.
  5. 12 for $1150 # sales slightly below average # $ above average total $ above average lowest $ 23.70 (UK newspaper) highest: $ 250.00 (US client) remarkable: 1 for $ 25.63 to Mexico wim
  6. 15 sales, 4 around the $170/180 mark which was a pleasant surprise. Don't seem to get many of these nowadays.....
  7. 4 item(s) totalling $82.78 - in reality only 2 items as 3 of those were sale / refund / sale to adjust the dates. Currently sitting on 18 unreported sales (that I know of).
  8. It happened a few times to me that my photos appearing in the Saturday Times but no sales are reported. According to MS, it could take up to 3 months for The Times to report the sale to Alamy (I don't know the other papers). The thing you can do is to keep the copy of the picture and wait to see if the sale is reported in the meantime. After 3 months, if not reported, you can contact MS with the proof (photo of the picture with the date of the paper showing). Sometimes the sale will be reported before 3 month's lapse. In this case, you can ask to MS if the sale of the picture
  9. If my memory serves my correctly October is usually a good month, perhaps because distributors report quarterly or other account holders, I don't really know. But I do know that my October was at the low end of average with 34 sales and only 2 above £100 in spite of an ever increasing portfolio. The last 3-4 months have been on the low side with September being the worst for several years so I'm not encouraged. Not in NU but in newspaper scheme. At least November has started with a sale before breakfast. Pearl
  10. All I know is that my average sales price has increased significantly this year and that is what counts at the end of the day. Can't get too excited about marketing blurbs. dov
  11. 10 sales for $455 gross. Account balance $606, of which $212 cleared. My new years resolution was to reach 7000 images by year end, but I got to 7015 this month. All good so far as I am concerned....
  12. Yes there is. My RF sales have always attracted fees somewhat in proportion to the file size, although the fee for a given size has varied by a factor of 25 depending on whether it was scheme or non- scheme. My largest ever fee was a full-size RF. None of them would have justified upsizing, but I certainly wouldn't downsize (from 14MP). Well, yes, according to the price calculator larger RF prices fetch higher prices. But I have a feeling that the reality might be quite another story. I downsize images taken with my 14 MP NEX-3 if I think it will increase the likelihood of pleasing QC. But

  14. I don't think that size matters that much for RM editorial photos since most usages are small. Also, given Alamy's unpredictable pricing, there isn't much evidence (IME, anyway) that larger files end up generating more income. I often downsize to 4000 or 3600 pixels on the long side to increase sharpness without worrying about possible lost sales. I guess larger RF files might bring higher prices, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of evidence to support that theory either. Or is there?
  15. If you have an Apple store in your city,go online and check to see what free hour long seminars they have. Sure much of it is sales pitch,but you can ask questions and you will come away with something you probably did not know. Good Mac forums online and same for youtube videos. I switched in the mid 1990s from PC to MAC and never looked back. L
  16. Ed, I don't walk on the news side much either, and when I do it's anything but wild. However, I've had sales of former "news" images after they've been added to the pot and have marinated for a while in the stock stew. Sorry, Lou, for the bad poetry, wherever you are.
  17. The image tracking stuff is still all in beta I understand because they sent me a couple of excel files containing images which they had found - loads of them, but a lot were legit sales - some through this agency. By the time that I went through them and told them not to chase the legit ones I had decided that the best route was the one which I had used up to then - sending a screengrab, file image from my archive, and the offending URL to their license compliance e-mail address - I usually get a reply with the likelihood of success within a few days. On the bright side they have jus
  18. They have also targeted one of my Barcelona images - Trouble at Mill re a certain Gaudi or associated copyright perhaps? Mine was not on purchase path and they are just informing me that the licence type will be changed to RM - something that I requested when this first blew up. I believe that it is Alamy practice to remove an image from sale if it has been sold and then the type of licence changed. Presumably they don't want the situation where the image could be sold as both RF and RM. As Mark says, I presume that you will get your cash for sales not yet fully concluded, but
  19. Nice one. I know two have sold a long time ago so will look forward to seeing a few more sales soon, hopefully!
  20. That's understood....but from a stock sales perspective I'm not sure it makes a difference as the size of the image doesn't matter. If size is a concern, then why not shoot the images as a panorama, correct them, then stitch them together?
  21. Thanks again Bryan for the two more 'newspaper online' sales, excellent work on your part ! peter t
  22. A sale earlier this month increases my dislike for the licensing policy/policies: Country: United Kingdom Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - Print only Print run: up to 100,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1 page Start: 03 October 2013 End: 03 November 2013 Print, print and digital version, or standalone digital plus archive. UK, Worldwide and in Foreign Languages. Images can be sublicensed to international publishers and re-edited into bookazine format in the context of the original article use only. This is an extension of the syndication fiasco which allows newspapers to commercial
