  1. Had 3 sales come in over the last week, all < $3 looks like it's becoming a Trend 😞
  2. Has anyone else noticed their measures information being much less than "normal" over the last 10 days or so? Since COVID my average daily views have been 1200-1400, and 8-12 zooms, but in the last 10 days or so both figures have been roughly half of those (and consequently CTR hasn't changed significantly) I originally wondered if it was due to August holidays, but it seems rather more significant than that. I wonder if Measures is partially broken? Kumar
  3. I've been a contributor for 3 years now, but made only 4 sales so far, totalling $73. On the FAQ page, Alamy states that it takes 45 days to 3 months to clear a sale. Two of the sales were made last year, totalling $37.88. On my dashboard, it states that the current cleared balance is $20. Am I missing something here? Is the value shown on the dashboard the gross value for the sale, and not what we are going to be receiving?
  4. 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')
  5. 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?

  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 normally have regular sales throughout the month but have had nothing for a couple of weeks. Am I being paranoid but I do wonder if I might suddenly get a load just after the new contract on 24th.
  9. I asked Alamy how IO had had two personal use sales but the images had not been zoomed. There answer FYI was: Hi Bill Alamy measures doesn’t register every action on the site. Views and zooms are only registered from customers who are logged in and who have spent a certain amount of money on Alamy. Thanks, Shelley Alamy Contributor Relations
  10. Hi, A picture of mine appears on a hungarian web article published almost two months ago with Alamy credit. Yet I can't see the sale on my Alamy contributor dashboard. I know that there is a delay between sale and payment, but I wasn't aware that a sale might post month later. How long does that usually take? The credit line shows Alamy / Profimedia, so maybe it takes longer because it is a sublicense? And by the way: found two more pictures that don't appear in my sales history - this time the publishing dates four months back. Chris
  11. Hi everyone, So after the whole new contract ordeal I've reviewed and re-labelled my portfolio, but noticed that I'm getting an increased number of Personal Use sales, is anyone else experiencing this?
  12. Personally I would find it useful if there was a field associated with each photo that recorded the number of times that the photo had sold and, ideally, its max, min and average price. That way it would be easier to remove photos that were not selling from each portfolio. :-)
  13. I’ve been uploading my better photographs to major stock agencies for a little over a year. I’ve had good success with Shutterstock, iStock, and Adobe Stock (more than 260 sales of so far). However, I’ve had ZERO sales from Alamy. What’s up? I not expecting to generate a huge number of sales from Alamy, but nothing at all! Have other contributors experienced similar results? Jerry
  14. Hi, This just appeared on my Net revenue sales report: ","28/5/2021","","","","","Other fees","Affiliate ommission charge for IY01834456 Image R",0.0000,-0.9100,-0.9100,"" It's the first time I get one of those, does anybody know what it is exactly?
  15. Hello fellow photographers. Happy May to all! I don't have the largest or strongest portfolio, but I had 7 sales last year, particularly active period of September to November. However, everything dried up suddenly and no sales since November. I am based on west coast of United States. Is this typical for anyone in the States? Anyone having good success this year? What kind of content has been doing well for you? I guess I don't attend rallies or catch social issues in time to provide those kinds of photographs. Thanks, and good luck to all, stay healthy
  16. 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
  17. Morning Everyone - Just been notified that I sold 5 images yesterday - however, total sale price is $0.67. Are these prices normal? My other sales have been in the $$ and $$$ regions... Many thanks Colin
  18. Hi Everyone Can anyone please take a look at my portfolio and just give me some idea where im going wrong. Ive been submitting now for 2 months and not had one single sale. I sell to other microstock sites and do ok, why I am not getting sales here. Is my portfolio just not good enough or is what I photograph more related to microstock and shall I stop wasting my time submitting here Thank you in advance - Steve
  19. 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
  20. I was just composing a reply to a new contributor asking about the lack of sales in his first months of being a contributor here. That prompted me to look back at my own record and I realised I had just celebrated my 10th anniverary at Alamy. Looking back at my first sales, it took just three months to get my first sale, but it was not until I'd been here nearly two years that I reached the dizzying heights of ten sales. What startled me most though is that those first ten sales achieved a gross value of $695 - heady amounts. Compare that to my last ten sales which took three mont
  21. I thought this might be an interesting statistic to explore. Last year (2020), I averaged 13 sales per month, which worked out to roughly 1.7 sales per month per 1000 images on sale. How about you?
  22. Is there a way to sign up to receive email notifications when my photos sell?
  23. Hello everyone. I have nearly 800 photos on my profile https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/215526.html and just 5 zooms for last 3 years. Are my photos just bad, not sellable or am i doing something else wrong. Thank you in advance
  24. Had the most odd experience today, I had eight views with three zooms on my own name! The only images of mine to show containing my name were eight live news images, has anyone else had this happen or think of any explanation?
