  1. Has anyone else recently had an email from Contributor Relations saying they are reclaiming the entire fee for the sale of an image "incorrectly marked as exclusive" which is exclusive to Alamy and clearly complies with all the criteria required for an "exclusive" image - and hasn't actually sold anyway? Or is it just me?
  2. I have some shots which I have posted exclusive to Alamy. If I posted them on a hobbyist photo sharing site saying they are for sale exclusively from Alamy, are they still exclusive?
  3. As we know there are "Exclusivity inquiry" emails coming in last months. The client wants to buy an exclusive license as below: Image: xxxxxaUsage: Trade/Retail book coverDuration: 10 yearsTerritory: WorldwideExclusivity: Industry/Spot (Trade Books/Cover) ... The client’s fee would be $950 USD and is non-negotiable. ... If you would approve, any similar/sister images should be restricted from sale in the same manner, including images: xxxxxb Here are two of my images under inquiry: - DEYJKX (and similar DEYJ7C) - DNBY4R (and similar F8C53D) Curious, what are yours? Ok, the real idea is to see how many of us got that emails and what is going on...
  4. I've looked at the other topics discussing this issue, and none seemed to be exactly on point. I just got a bunch of photos passed of a tourist attraction here in the US. Not a vastly popular one, but in an area where surprisingly I've licensed a fair number on Alamy and some via my site on Photoshelter too - I think that these are two places where editors go for those hard to find images. I'm tempted to tick "exclusive to Alamy" because they are not the types of images I expect to sell often, hence I've uploaded them here, and I don't expect they'd be a big draw on either of the other two macro sites where I could also upload them, but obviously just having them here lowers my chance of licensing elsewhere. Have you found that ticking "exclusive to Alamy" has boosted sales? I know the extra 10% is nice and am kicking myself that I've had a few sales of images that are only here but which I did not tick as "exclusive." Most of my Alamy images are not on sale elsewhere, but I'm reluctant to restrict them. I'd love know what people's experience has been so far with this new development. I'm also not sure how much this locks me in. Am I correct that I can still license an image myself? How long is the exclusive period for? Can I change them back by giving Alamy a certain amount of notice? Has "exclusive" been defined? At other sites it usually locks you in for 6 months, or 2 years, or 5 years. Does anyone know what the time is here? Thanks for input.
  5. Hello fellows, I don't know if I'm missing something, but when browsing through the Alamy website, there is no indication about "exclusive images" (Only available on Alamy), either in stock or live news images, in general search or individual image description (visitors mode). I think it would be an interesting option, useful to highlight the images from "Exclusive collection of stock and live news" and facilitate whoever (potential customers) either searching or browsing through the Alamy website.

  6. Good morning, dear forum members. I'm sure you've talked about this topic many times , but I would really appreciate if you could invest a little more time and help me to find out what I am missing. First of all, I want to tell you some facts about me and my pictures - just to clarify a few things. - I am Olympus Visionary/Ambassador from Switzerland - My pictures are constantly published at National Geographic and winning different contests, awards etc. - All my pictures are exclusively at Alamy and I don't sell my pictures anywhere else - QC accepts 100% of my uploads, not a single one has been rejected - All my pictures are RM only - All my pictures got 100% info and optimized discoverability A short story why RM only. Few years ago I did a small test and uploaded 10 pictures to Shutterstock. There have been many downloads every day and I've received around 400$ after 6 months. That was fine and I almost decided to upload ~4000 pictures there. But something happened just before I did, and now I'm glad it happened. One day I came to a supermarket and was shocked to see "Kleenex" tissue packages with my picture on the box. There were tons of those on every wall. I called Kleenex and they told me it was a download from Shutterstock. RF means they can use it as they wish, without limits. There have been hundreeds of thousands packages in every city, in every supermarket. I got 20 cent for the download. More examples came soon after that. SNCF, DB and SBB used my pictures in Paris central station as well as many stations in different towns of France, Germany and Switzerland. Huge posters everywhere, 20 cents for me. Dozens of books were published, using my pictures, 20 cents for me. Every corner of swiss travel websites was full of my pics, again 20 cents for me. Those are only few examples, why I decided to go RM only in the future. Since Alamy is the last and only Website which pays 50% (im exclusive) and got RM option, I decided to upload some pictures for a test here. Half a year has passed, but no sales. Please have a short look at my Portfolio. I cover almost all types of photography with the focus on macro, wildlife, landscapes, astro, travels, portraits, low light, artistic light paintings etc. I would like to know what I do wrong at Alamy now. I know that the test amount of my pictures is very low but is this really the only problem? I thank you for your time. Kind Regards Orest Olympus Visionary
  7. I just posted this on the 'suggestions' forum: "Now that Alamy is making a clearer distinction of images available only here, it only makes sense, imo, to have that information available on the sales page. Is work being done to make this improvement?" If "available only on Alamy" has any worth at all in promoting sales, it needs to be included in data about the image. If Alamy doesn't make that improvement, it may indicate that they don't believe that it does. It could also mean that they would rather discourage those sales, because of the higher commission paid to us. Let us hope that is not the case. Michael
  8. Hi All brand new here - basically joined as an outlet for my non-commissioned work most of which normally gets posted to social media then I forget about it until someone wants to use it for something - thought I would join here and then I can just point them (usually local paper) to Alamy to buy the images they want and save me the hassle of dealing with them - though I know this means I'll earn less from them maybe some other people might want some too to offset them etc and it will hopefully just be less hassle. Anyway my question is this - should I be ticking Exclusive to Alamy? My images are so far as sales are concerned but I wasn't sure if this precludes me posting them to social media? Or would it only preclude that if I were trying to sell them via social media rather than just showing them?
  9. Hi I currently upload to Alamy, and large part of images elsewhere too. But started to think whether I should stick to Alamy exclusively. Hence my question - did you notice better/more sales on exclusive images that non-exclusive? Thanks.
