  1. Hi there, this is Giogionny! I'm really new to this kind of system, so I will probably ask many questions to all of you! Thank you so much for the opportunity to be here and for the advices you will be giving me! Have a great day!
  2. This might suit some of you with news knowledge and alternative Sundays to fill. http://www.alamy.com/work-for-us/uk-jobs/news-shifter-oct-2017.asp Apply within. Richard.
  3. Has anyone else noticed this: Alamy promises four dedicated language sites – Spanish first Spanish Alamy site now up and running. Good news! Will this mean more direct sales in foreign climes?! Should we (where possible) be including European tags in our images to take account of this (i.e. not just names of things/places, but direct translations of keywords - could then justify using up the 50 tags and turn everything green!)? I have had a quick look at one or two of my images and the translation of the captions is reasonable, but not perfect. Is there anything we ca
  4. Just noticed this Tweet from Alamy on the Forum homepage: "Don’t add what you think is a spelling mistake someone might make e.g. desert & dessert, our search engine will punish this." What! When did that happen? And where is that in the keywording guidelines? I have long added misspellings and international spellings of words. I hope that Alamy are only referring to instances such as that which they give: Adding dessert as a keyword to a photo of sand dunes is clearly a bad idea and an image of a bowl of Angel Delight won't benefit from sandy or mirage. If
  5. Hello everyone. I'm new at Alamy. Could you take look at my portfolio and give some valuable critics. Thank you. http://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?&xstx=0&userid={CA48BF86-825B-409E-8E90-AE3D82059810}&name=Halit+Ölmez&st=12
  6. Discovered an additional toggle box underneath RF today, giving buyers the option to include or exclude "editorial RF".
  7. I am new user so I can be totally wrong... I looked at "All of Alamy" stats from last 30 days and took numbers: number of pages with at least one sale: 128 first ten of the biggest sales (sum): 133 Then I took stats from 1 Jul 2016 - 1 Aug 2017 number of pages with at least one sale: 400 first ten of the biggest sales (sum): 213 Looks like a big drop in only one year...
  8. Hello everyone I am new here (Passed QC about a week ago). I have prepared more images, but I'd like to make keywording as easy as possible. I have keyworded some of my images in Lightroom and would like to know if Alamy reads image metadata, that I see in LR (keywords, title, description) and will apply them after upload? Michael
  9. I found this video poking around on Youtube. James has some interesting things to say. You can speed it up to get through it faster. Its a couple of year old but still relevant. Is surprising it hasn't had more views.
  10. Has anybody else noticed the total number of images in the Alamy library seems to have reduced in the past few days? I'm sure it was at over 106 million last week but on Saturday the total number dropped to around 99.6 million and this morning I think it is slightly lower still. A clean up? A cull? A database glitch?
  11. Hi, Do Alamy still help photographers to get money back from the DACS Payment scheme like they did in the past ? Not sure how to apply for it myself. Deadline is May 1st, I believe. Thanks.

  13. Hi. For tax purposes I must fill out Alamy's EIN tax number on my annual IRS form. Does anyone know what this number is? I don't think it's the same as VAT number but I'm not sure. Thanks.
  14. We have nearly completed another year of Alamy sales and it is time to reflect, review and learn lessons. This chart I am very happy with : This chart I am not so happy with : Sales increasing nicely year on year, efforts being rewarded, careful keywording resulting in customers finding my images. But all that work, all the hours invested, to end up with a declining revenue stream feels like pedaling backwards on my bike or kayaking up a waterfall. Too many photographers I guess, too many images for customers to choose from, too easy to just use Google Images and grab any ima
  15. Hello guys, I just want to share some results coming from my experience. I am the person that next to Alamy also submit(ed) to micros. I did that already for many years. In those years there was one micro agency that had always the first place but in the last two years think where turning for me completely. Those top micro agency and some others started to show dramatically decline in sales. Following other contributors there they experienced the same. In the meantime Alamy showed and different pattern to me. Revenue was growing for me month by month. My Alamy graph looks almost like a
  16. Hi, I decided to go exclusive on other site, I deleted all my accounts on other stock sites except Alamy, they say that I need to wait 45 days. Simple, I want to delete it now because I want to go exclusive on other site asap! I know about contract bla bla, that we agree with terms who say that need to wait 45 days BUT also support say that they have a right to sell image who we already sell here on site (they are still available to buyers who already bought it...something like that) ?! is this even legal ?! I also find some post on internet that some people who delete account on Alamy aft
  17. Hi! I just joined Alamy as a US based contributor 1-2 days ago. The website seems nice, they claim to have a couple(kidding, more than 2mil) million stock photos, but I still have some issues, so I'll put them in bullet points; If Alamy is so big, why do they have so few US based reputable clients? Dailymail.co.uk uses them, but few others do. Compared to [redacted], which seems universal in size and scale, Alamy seems basically like a small company (Chrome even marks Alamy as a typo!!) What are your average sales? I'm not asking price, that might be too much, just average sale volum
  18. Hi on Alamy's home page alamy.com it says "Pricing from £15", but if you look at an individual image, no matter if RF or RM, the pricing officially starts at £ 9.99. Wasn't it £15.00 or £14.99 before, consistent with the statement on the home page? Edit: I think the "Marketing package: Small business" price has also been lowered, but I'm not totally sure.
  19. Hi...can anyone help, please? I normally use a Lightroom plugin to upload my images and have started getting an error message `Alamy server says `200'. Can anyone enlightne me as to what this means? Thanks
  20. Article about the sale of the Peroni beer company appearing in the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/nov/29/ab-inbev-plans-to-sell-peroni-and-grolsch-takeover-sabmiller-eu-competition-regulators Contains a photograph taken by Edward Simons
  21. Anyone else using the Alamy Lightroom plug in getting a 404 error when trying to fetch data today?
  22. Please feel free to share any sort of happy news* about Alamy forum members here, as time goes on.... (*about family milestone, photography of fellow member or yourself....) I'll start off it off by congratulating Ed Endicott for having his photo appear in Photoshelter's Weekend Inspiration SELECTS #20. When I received Photoshelter's Selects email today, I immediately recognized Ed's photo as the one he posted last month in the "Your favorite images you have uploaded to Alamy this month" thread created by winstainforth. smiles - Ann
