  1. Hi all, Hope you had a decent and healthy start to the new year - and 2021 will be huge improvement over the one just gone! I have been with Alamy since around 15 years, and despite a constant fall in commission, have so far stayed with them. In the last ten years on teh 1300 images I have up here, I made a average sale of just under 5 a year. Obviously nothing to make a living of. Most of my images are from China and editiorial. I have been a live news contributor. After working on the picture desk of the Asia hub of one for the four major news wires I have changed the way I keyword, f
  2. Recently, I've noticed a sudden increase in Presentation Sales. It actually represents 63% of my sales and there are variations in the price. Previously, I've only had the occasional Presentation Sale. I've not changed any of my settings. Any thoughts on why this might be?
  3. Hi In June I started uploading part of my portfolio to Alamy . I signed up many years ago but for some reason never had uploaded anything So far with more than 3000 photos I've had 31 zooms and a CTR of 0.54. But only 3 sales and all of them of the same topic (editorial portraits of people in Cuba). This sales amount to a net income of $30. So I guess I'm doing something wrong because there's no logic in spending the time to upload and tag 3000 photos if sales are so rare. I'd really appreciate your advice
  4. I understand that the commercial buyer will not go through the normal portal and Zoom images there before buying. It happens, I see it, no problem. But, personal use images will be different. Who would buy an image without looking at it closely if they were going to use it for Usage: Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts. Non-commercial use only, not for resale. I think its acon. Its commercial users who see a $13 useage as the cheapest option and go for it because the chances of getting caught are nil.
  5. I'm getting a basically blank page if I check my Sales History. The image I sold is still appearing on the right. Another blank page for Account Balance. Paulette
  6. I'm on Alamy more than year and over 1700 p photos, but have only 1 sale. What I'm doing wrong? My porfolio: https://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?pl=1&plno=673186
  7. I've been seeing a drastic drop in zooms during the past few months -- only eight so far this month. CTR has been creeping downward as well. Strangely enough, sales have been holding up well. Most months have been average or better for number of licenses. Anyone else noticing this odd pattern? If so, any explanations or theories (crackpot or otherwise)?
  8. Hello everybody! I've been on Alamy since March 2018 and I have made 6-7 decent sales a year in the first two years, so these were my expectations about the potential of my portfolio. The problem is that this year my latest sale dates back to the beginning of April and then I've not seen a single sale in more than 7 months! The numbers of zooms hasn't changed significantly over the last year (just a very slight decrease). So I'm beginning to think that there might be some kind of issue, because this complete lack of sales over so long a period seems too strange to me. What do you s
  9. Hi everyone, I have recently been making a few sales as personal use since removing all restrictions. I can be happy for the increase in sales although no more than $10 or less per sale, My question and concerns is how the material is being used and if these personal use buyers have a contract with Alamy stating the material cannot be used outside of personal use. Any experiences or views on this, would be appreciated. Thanks everybody, Paul.
  10. Just under 400 sales listed for 2020 and only two give USA as the country of sale. I haven't yet checked the download data files. Given that Alamy gets more than 50% of its revenue from USA I am not doing very well. My non-ex images with XXX Images sell in USA, Alamy has a sales office in New York so what is going on? Any thoughts, experiences or possible explanations?
  11. Hi all I started to add to my folio earlier this year so I only have 96 images online. I realise now some of my earlier images were probably unsellable so I've gradually been changing the content of my submissions but I currently have `0` sales! Anybody have advice please on how you get that elusive first sale? Thank you.
  12. Hello guys! I just started at Alamy, and I`d like to have some idea on sales and earnings. Now, I know it`s really hard to say as it depends on number and quality of photos and many other things, but if you can give me an idea what to expect and what is the dynamic here on Alamy, especially comparing to other agencies ( I presume names of other agencies are not allowed and that`s fine), but generally, how would you rate your experience on Alamy in regards to sales and earnings, comparing to other agencies. I`m interested because I really like the platform and simplicity of Alamy, although I`m
  13. Hello mates, My name is Miguel Moya Moreno and I have been a collaborator of the agency for a few years. I am writing to you because I have seen one of my photographs published in an internet publisher and with the caption naming Alamy but it does not appear on my sales list. I'd like to know if the same thing has ever happened to anyone. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
  14. Hello there! No sales, what I'm doing is wrong. Should I continue uploading photos? https://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?pl=1&plno=426084 Thank you for your answers
  15. Before I pop a champagne cork at 2 sales ( $164 and $206) of the same image at royalty free, does this seem like an error or mistake ?
  16. Something ive not come across before and just wondering if anyone has had the same... Just did a search in one of my pseudo summaries for the last month, and i have a number of searches that show as : your views 1, sessions 1, zooms 0, total views 0, ctr% Nan! so although mine was viewed, it wasnt actually? its the YOUR VIEWS 1 and TOTAL VIEWS 0, thats confusing! happens on a number of searches over the last month. any thoughts welcome JH
  17. Anyone else's sales fallen off a cliff this month? Mine have been quite buoyant this year, despite Covid. Until September. Suddenly nothing at all. Nada. Zilch. Is it just me, or have others had the same experience?
  18. Not sure what's happening, but my last sale was in 05 Aug 2020. After that, radio silence....... Anyone?
  19. Hi Photographers, I have joined Alamy in September 2019 and made 2 sales within December while having only 4 images in portfolio with average optimization. After a dormant 8 months I started uploading more images from August 2020 and have tried to optimize each including the old 4. But I don't see any sales happening. Are my expectations too early or the optimizations have gone overboard? It will be great if you can visit https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/soumyajitphotography and share your valuable feedback. Thanks, Soumyajit
  20. I found my RM sales completely stucked after agency acquisition. I don't have a sale since that period when Alamy has been bought by PM-something.... I guess RM files are not pushed in the same manner as before.... Should i switch my files to RF? Any other experience that way?
  21. I was wondering if there's a (roughly) general zooms/sales ratio, or it varies a lot according to portfolio content? At present, mine is 4.75.
  22. I have had no new zooms for about 15 days now. Very unsual, as my zooms have been fairly consistent for years as has my ranking. Three images sold in the same period (not zoomed, or at least zooms not registered). Anybody else experiencing the same crash in zooms numbers?
  23. Does anyone know if it's possible to check through the dashboard if an individual image has been sold, at any time, by Alamy. I've one or two oldish pix appearing on websites and before chasing the user, it would be helpful to exclude Alamy as a scource. Many thanks.
  24. I uploaded 1600+ images on the site , on here from January and not one sale? got images elsewhere andI made sales , about 100 a month but the same shots with 20+downloads have made nothing on here , I find this a bit strange. if the shots were no good they would not sell somewhere else? I am not making mega bucks , so far about $300 this year but it helps paying for equipment / insurance etc... any tips how to proceed here or would it be better just to give up and delete all my shots on here. thanks Andre
  25. I must admit to multiple checks during a normal day. More than multiple. Many! Too many. I think it would be better to resist and check maybe only a few times a week but can never manage that. Or perhaps just once a day. Not sure of the psychology of it. Seeing a good sale obviously gives a good boost. Seeing a pathetic sale often is worse than nothing. Almost. Nothing is worse than nothing. 🤔
