  1. Hello All, If i go in my account settings it says "Your commission model is Alamy Blue." Can anyone explain me what it is? Also its showing Your QC rank is ** . What does that mean? Please guide me.
  2. Hello, Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening to whomever is in different time zones. I am new to Alamy but I have been uploading to Alamy and hoping to make some sells than based on what I am not fully archiving with Shutter Stock or Adobe Stock. I been doing photo work for quite sometime. My Portfolio . Mostly sports but been doing different things here and there. My question is since each platform is different and each one is tricky. Like how SS sometimes allows certain photos I take on my travels like buildings and certain events then doesn't, same with Adobe Stock. I wish 500px would supply more of my photos to iStock and Getty as they are supposed to, even my landscape photos are not even being ported over. Only a small handful about a year and half ago when they did make the change adding iStock and Getty to their selling feature now nothing. Also 500px is weird at times because when a photo doesn't pass to be licensed but you upload it again and it does but the photo that follows the one that does get licensed it doesn't than even if it is landscape photos. So my Questions are since I have a ton of photos more than 10,000 about 40,000 and still adding more. I am hoping to reach about 100,000 before the end of the year. But my questions are. Do people make a decent living on this platform? If so how long and how many photos needed? I understand that a huge amount makes you more noticed. Also with release forms, do you really need a release form? Because honestly some of the landscape or travel photos which have no people or known building in the photos, Adobe and Shutter Stock still reject them??? Very odd. If it is a old run down farm or building with no ownership. The photo gets rejected. So I ask does that truly matter here??? I hope someone is able to answer these questions and I hope to work with some of you. I been seeing a lot of backlash about this platform. Which about Alamy steals photos and sells them without your consent to do so and no one makes money here even after a year. Also the commission has dropped big time and people are leaving because of it. So what is true or not? If any of that is true will this platform bottle up like SS and AS and only give people .25 or .33 cents for one sale??? Honestly that Subscription crap is BS. Because it hurts the creator in the effort of doing something worthy. Like putting a video together that took 6-8 hours of editing and only get a few bucks when the true price of it is in thousands. So I hope Alamy doesn't drive down that road and turn into a subscription platform and screw over the creators big time. People need to pay by the work not by shot.
  3. I have image on Sthutterstock, Fotolia,Istock,Dreamstime,123Rf and Alamy. In all of them i have sells, but not in Alamy, why? What kinds of images could be sell on Alamy?
  4. Hi I haven't seen this mentioned elsewhere. I have a number of files that aren't matching between Lightroom and Alamy through Lightroom bridge. I can see the cause but not the solution. The files in question have all failed QC and then been resubmitted and passed. With both submissions my file name remained the same however Alamy allocated a different reference for them both. Alamy Bridge is matching with the failed version and subsequently is not bringing across any data and tags etc and marking them as not on sale. I have read the manual and tried many combinations of options in the export function but cant seem to find a way to force Lightroom bridge to match the file name with the passed Alamy reference and not the failed on. Has anyone come across this and any thoughts of the best solution? Many thanks
  5. Hi , hope all is well. Was wandering how could we get from Alamy the list of publications each contributor has had published ? Not monthly but at least annually.
  6. I have sent my stock photos many times, but always rejected with "soft due to size" error and I don't understand what it means, someone please help me
  7. There are still places available at my annual one-day intensive Alamy / AlamyNews stock photography workshop in beautiful Cirencester in two months time..... The day is suitable for all levels of experience, from outright beginners to more experienced contributors who want to improve their working methods contact me (workshops@artx.co.uk) for more details and prices https://www.abbeyphotoschool.co.uk/alamy-sales-seminar Some quotes from previous particpants: “I absolutely loved the day and really came away feeling enthused.” Jim C “Thanks again for the course your energy and enthusiasm and openness made for an excellent day. “ Alex M “I really enjoyed the day. I thought the content and information was great for those up us who were just beginning on the Stock journey. “ Rob C “It was certainly very inspiring and has made me want to step more into the reportage / RM world!” Tom G “I think the day was a great success and I enjoyed it very much, in addition to learning lots of valuable information” Christopher J “Hi Keith, thanks again for an inspirational day in Cirencester.” Chris P “The workshop/seminar was absolutely fantastic. Learnt so much and you presented very openly with the reality that a street reportage photographer experiences daily. It was nice to see how close I was, yet those few little tweaks can make all the difference. “ Cernan E keith morris
  8. 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? Thanks, Michael
  9. It's the time of year where i start the process of gathering interest in my annual Stock Photography One-Day Workshop. Taking place in Cirencester, in the hear of the Cotswolds, on Saturday 4 April 2019 - a full on day to get you up to speed with stock photography at Alamy, and to give you a few insights into the way that I work. Hopefully we will again have representatives from Alamy and LiveNews on hand for an hour or so Q+A over lunch Contact me for more information and/pr to be put on the mailing list for this event KM
  10. When I submit an image with keywords entered in photoshop the image manager seems to add a very long keyword/tag at the end, in fact so long that they cover the entire Tag (keyword) field on the right and I can't get to the "x" on the RHS to delete them, how do I remove them?
  11. Reaching out for help here if anyone has every found themselves in similar situation and hopefully managed to get it sorted and could perhaps give me some guidance? Been with Alamy since 2004, been paid many times, the last few years with PayPal and never ever had a problem. So this is my case/problem; Was paid by Alamy on 2nd of July which is reflected in my "Balance of account". Usually that means that within a week or so I receive it in my PayPal account. Well time passed and nothing was received. I contacted member services and Alamy asked me to double-check my PayPal details and re-enter them just to be sure, which I did. They also said that if something had gone wrong the money would be returned to them within a month i.e. no later than beginning of August. Time passed and it became time for the August payment. Obviously I was worried that something would be wrong with that payment as well, but it came through fine. At this moment my July payment is about 6 weeks plus overdue. When I reach out to member services (which I've done several times) the responses I keep getting from Alamy is that "it has been sent" and "nothing has been returned" and that there is basically nothing more that they can do. I've checked, double checked, triple checked my PayPal account - no July payment received from Alamy and nothing wrong with the account itself, been paid before and after by Alamy, as well as from a range of other places. I feel unsupported and confused in this matter. Obviously I want my earnings, every $ counts, as well as it makes me worried about future payments. I'm also puzzled that Alamy isn't more concerned that a payment that according to them they have sent didn't make it to it's intended recipient - basically it has just vanished, of course they haven't lost anything, I'm the one out of pocket, but still I would like to think that it would be of importance/joint interest that money paid out to contributors actually reaches them? Does anyone have any advice as to what I can do? I'm stumped at this moment in time.
  12. How do I find my Alamy images which have been accepted online? What is the pattern for the correct URL?
  13. Hi All, I am a photographer for many years, have no problem to pass QC here. I 've accumulated about 5000 images here. most of them have 50 keywords with good caption. But nothing was soled. why ?
  14. I'm quite new to Alamy and very new to this forum. What has driven me to write is the low fee that I've been paid for the sale of a photo. It barely covers the cost of the sandwich I had for lunch that day. According to Alamy's own site, a photo sold on the following basis: Country: United KingdomUsage: EditorialMedia: Magazine - print, digital and electronicPrint run: up to 500,000Placement: InsideImage Size: 1 pageStart: 01 August 2018End: 01 August 2023Duration: 3 months. Any placement: Inside or cover. ... should have sold for about $120 of which I receive half. Trouble is that the photo sold for less than $10 (of which I get half) . As far as I can see $9.99 is shown as the lowest a photo can sell for on Alamy - and that's merely for personal use. Can someone tell me what on earth is going on as I am feeling ripped off ?
  15. Already check with the bank and they say there is 0 bank in during the month ... What to do next?
  16. Hi I am new to the forum and this is my very first post just to introduce myself. I started with photography since 2008 when I got my first digital camera but first uploaded on stock around mid 2012. Like many photographers I shoot almost anything but my interest lies in travel, destination and landscape photography. Initially Alamy sales were far and few but now I have started getting fmore requent sales, almost 1-3 sales every month. I am hoping for many more sales as my portfolio grows. Wish a best of luck and many more sales to all the contributors . Shahid A Khan

  20. I was wondering if photos taken on an IPhone should be exclusively uploaded via stockimo app, or can you also upload them via alamy on the computer ?
  21. 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!
