  1. Hi, I’ve been uploading kaleidoscope / abstract versions of my images like the one below. I notice there are lots of this type of thing on Alamy. Wondering if anyone has had any sales? Do people buy these?
  2. I am about to put a number of abstract images onto sale through AIM and I am not quite sure how to caption and/or tag them. They are all microphotography images of (largely) organic matter and whilst the identify of the "raw" material is apparent in some of them, for the most part, this is not. I have produced these with the aim of making interesting, colourful images and, to some extent, seeing what can be done via this media. My intention was not to produce scientifically authenticated images for educational purposes, rather interesting (to me at least) patterns and shapes. Some of these could be used a book covers but there is no category for that use so my questions are these: 1) Should I identify what the raw material is in the caption or just title it "abstract", leaving it to the imagination as to what it really is? 2) What should I use for the primary category? Abstract and Background or should I use what it actually is? 3) What should I use for the secondary category (if at all)? In the case of a colourful Stilton cheese rind, should I use Food? For a lovely lamb's ear leaf or opaque leaf, should I use Plants? For a owl's feathers. should I use wildlife? 4) Should I add 'book c over' to the tagging in the hope that somebody might find them for that kind of use? Any advice on the above would be very much appreciated. Thanks. Sheila
  3. Newbie here! I'm wondering how other abstract artists and illustrators are doing with sales. I'd also love to know your thoughts on keywording.... do you get all 50 in? Are you using non-color color-names like peach? Is still life one keyword or two? I'd welcome advice on keywords. I use Photoshop the most (for repeating patterns as well as abstract compositions), but am starting to think of putting my repeating vectors online too. Is Alamy the right place for this? Is vector illustration selling better than raster? This is the first time I've licensed, and I'm really uncertain of what to expect... relating your experience could help :-) Thanks for your time and input! Kristin ps... how does one get "verified?" Also, I have almost 200 images on Almay, not 15 as my profile shows
  4. Hello to everyone, I am new on Alami and I would like to know, if anyone can tell me, is it good sell of backgrounds on this site ?
