  1. Very long image manager tags

    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?
  2. How to find my Alamy images

    How do I find my Alamy images which have been accepted online? What is the pattern for the correct URL?

  5. Barely the price of my sandwich

    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 ?
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. Already check with the bank and they say there is 0 bank in during the month ... What to do next?
  9. Can we PLEEEESE get a Stockimo forum?

  10. Hello from Manchester

    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

  15. Hello Alamy world!

  16. A job at Alamy (at home)

  17. New dedicated language sites

    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 can do about this? Alamy?
  18. Keywording and Misspellings

    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 so, then that is clearly bl**din obvious, if not, then I'm concerned.
  19. Portfolio critics

    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
  20. Discovered an additional toggle box underneath RF today, giving buyers the option to include or exclude "editorial RF".
  21. Are alamy sales going down?

    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...
  22. 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
