  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
  2. Hi, every one I have question about my balance of account. There is sale, which not added from 30 July 2018 (I don`t find any information about such long terms of waiting for adding payment). Then I had sales on 29 October 2018 which not added according to page Balance of account. Please give me link to this information or just explain here your terms Thank You very much for Your attentionn P.S.: I have problem with contacting contributors@alamy.com (Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender) My hosting mail master (I have own web with e-mail box) said that it`s because of some settings of alamy mail system. So I can not ask directly and that`s why write here. It would be great if I will solve two problems in one time
  3. Hi, everyone I am Alamy contributor and I have question about difference in current cleared balance which is less than 50% of amount of sales to date. As I understand the commission is 50/50 and there is no taxes according to my tax form, so I don`t find any other information which will explain this difference. So please give me a link on this info or just explain me. Unfortunately I can not contact contributors@alamy.com because "Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender - Action: failed" Thank You for Your attention and answers in advance
  4. Hi all, Just wondered if anyone out there has experienced a similar issue - Had a payment in December without issue. No changes to E-mail address. Next payment gets "returned by Paypal" (although they assure me if the E-mail address is correct it will be credited). Contacted Alamy Finance Team, have had payment resissued plus whats due this month - again not received. Waiting to hear from Alamy finance. Just wondering if anyone had seen a similar situation and may have any advice please? There's little to change in payment details (it's just "Paypal") so struggling to see the issue. Happily using my Paypal account for other transactions. Thanks in advance. TobyH
  5. I am trying to reply to those helping me with downloading CSV but every time I log in to the Forum and go to the topic I am logged out so I am reporting here that I have managed to download the file and open it in Excel so I will send this, even though it looks a bit weird. Thanks to those replying. Kathy

  10. Can you guys see my image? DPD00T I see only blank stripe, no image at all... But when I click on the stripe I can see large zoom as usual. Some display error? Anyone else?
  11. Hi, I new here. I have uploaded a batch of images, keyworded them all. Now only 22 images updated. 12 images got stuck and displaying a message that says "Images not on sale please keyword". images management page shows them as ready and waiting for search engine update. I am confused. is everything fine or something wrong on my side? Thanking you, SUMAN AC
  12. Hi guys, I just wanted to share my experience with images not showing with the right orientation in the submission lots. The interesting fact is that apparently the original images on my computer are all in the right orientation, however after uploading the all the images are becoming from portrait to landscape. This issue is only with my last 2 uploads. Have you ever experienced such a problem? I have notified the MS and recovery efforts are underway, however all the images with wrong orientation are back to the QC again. I'll keep you posted for the workflow required to correct the problem.
  13. I have been using the Alamy Picture Manager plugin for Lightroom for a long time now and was very happy. It is a really great plugin by Jim Keirr www.lightroom-plugins.com/AlamyIndex.php and worth any cent as it makes your editing work much more productive and efficient. Unfortunately it no longer works properly. I am not sure whether this is since I last updated Lightroom or the plugin. The problem is that when I want to export, all data will be sent to Alamy with the exception of the keywords. At the same time all keywords will disappear in the plugin keywords box after export completion. I have been in touch with Jim, however the problem could not be solved yet. I think he still tries to find a solution for me. Has anyone else encountered this problem too and maybe even a solution found? I really love this plugin and hope I can get it to work again
  14. Hi Guys, Just got back from hols where I was clicking away with my trusty Canon 5D Mk2 and 24-105L when it struggled to lock on to a subject then when I pressed to take the shot up came the error 01. On the screen it said communications between camera and lens is faulty - clean the lens contacts. Now, this lens hardly ever comes off hte camera but I did remove and cleaned the prestine looking contact points. I do not recall knocking or catching the lens anywhere but managed to keep it working at 24mm with no problems until I zoomed in a bit. I have just tried a 16-35 lens and the was no problems so it must be the lens. Really I would like to know which service centers you may have used and or recommend. I would also like to send the camera too and get the sensor cleaned while it it is there. Was looking at canon in Elstree or have heard good things about Fixation. Regards Paul Thompson
  15. I have tried to get some images on Alamy. I followed their submission rules very carefully and so was dismayed to encounter problems. I have tried several times and always fail their Quality Control check for the reason "Data loss or corruption". I checked their website for details of what that means and then checked my images very carefully and could see nothing wrong. So I emailed their Member Services for advice. They sent me a copy of two of my failed images and I was shocked to see the obvious corruption - the whole of the images were a wreck! Obviously I hadn't knowingly submitted them like that. I used their online upload facility and can only assume there is a problem between my computer system and theirs. I use an Apple Mac. I googled the subject and generally people who have uploading errors just seem to try again and they go though OK. I've tried about 6 times. I've tried converting the images to jpegs using 3 different software programs. I've tried uploading using Chrome. Nothing works. I'm out of ideas! I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone who's seen this type of problem before and especially if you know of a solution. Many thanks.
  16. This morning I was doing some research. I wanted to see if anybody else on Alamy had uploaded photos of the new Exploratorium (sort of a kid oriented science museum) in San Francisco. It just moved and has been open in the new location for about a month or so. I uploaded a few a couple weeks ago. I was surprised to see only one photo, not mine when I searched Exploratorium by taken in the *last three months.* So I went in to Alamy manage images 2.4 and took a look at the date. I assumed that there would be no date at all in the field but instead it listed 19.09.2012. The actual date, as shown in the same images uploaded to Flickr and Zenfolio show taken on 02.05.2013. Of course I *know* my dates aren't that jacked up, since I also geotagged that same set and have to sync the images with my location history from Google Latitude. Also I on occasion have to sync my camera clock with a coworker so our images list in the proper order for events. Plus the Alamy dates are jacked up on both my Sony NEX and Canon 5d MKII images. And it's easy for me to reference since all my photos are named with the date as part of my Lightroom workflow (YearMonthDay_serialno.) Further research showed that dates on Alamy appear incorrect just from images uploaded this year, but that's just from some random sampling. Guess I should send this straight to Alamy? Seems like a major problem. I was just trying to search like a photo buyer would. If I were writing a story on the new Exploratorium, I'd search by date. But by the Alamy dates, a buyer would assume that my photos were taken in the old location. Anybody else having this problem. What should I do?
