  1. 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
