  1. Hi all, I just got a notification of a $ 1.27 sale, with a perpetual license... Is that normal? I've seen a few single digit sales lately, but never in the $1 range! Is Alamy now playing in the microstock pool? I don't even see where you can buy my image at that price! Any help would be much appreciated!
  2. It seems my total revenues on Alamy started to decline as soon as i converted quite all my pics to RF. I only left some pics to RM whose are the ones which sell better at the moment. Anyone experiencing the same?
  3. How's this for missing out on what should have been huge licensing fees--it appears this image was exclusive to a particular "other" agency: Single photograph used by political parties again and again and again . . . for a few quid. DD
  4. Dear Alamy community and contributors! Please help me, what do you think about this? Which are the best choice : Rf or Rm, if the photography works, only available on Alamy? Waiting for your answers, Many thanks, King Regard, Akos Horvath Hobby Photographer
  5. Hello dedicated photographers! This topic may have been questioned before long ago. But I need clearer answers based on your own experience, not theoretical one. Is it right RF photos are tend to get more sales than RM these days? Because I saw usual buyers are often from repeater companies, like The Sun, BBC, Guardian, and other media from British and Europe. This makes me assume ordinary buyers from another countries are prefer to buy RF than RM. What do you think? Thanks
  6. I recall a forum thread a while back in which (besides carrying on the eternal debate about the pros and cons of RM and RF), it was said that Alamy prefers RF because this is increasingly what clients want. This has stayed at the back of my mind, and I thought it should be possible to test how true this is by counting the number of searches in Alamy Measures that specify RM and RF. AM appears not to provide any information other than the search terms on all-of-Alamy searches, so I went to my own most important pseudonym and looked up searches from 1st January to 30th June this year. I stopped counting after 100 pages of search results. Here are the results: Searches that specify RM or RF RM: 25 searches RF: 14 searches Distribution of RM and RF in pseudonym RM: 95% RF: 5%. The results should be treated with a lot of caution. First of all, number of searches that specify RM or RF is very small and more data might change the picture. Secondly, most of the images under this pseudonym are RM and this probably skews the results. I used only one pseudonym because my pseudonyms aren't subject-exclusive so a lot of searches show up in more than one. Thirdly, results are also likely to vary by subject matter. But if more forum members were willing to chip in with their own figures, we might build up a more general picture.
  7. After the new AIM was introduced, I began listing more RF than I did in the past. As of this moment, 39% are RF. I just ran the numbers for the past year, and 24% of what sold are RF. Not bad numbers. Quite a few if not most are plants. I didn’t count subject matter, but now I’m curious! I’ll take a look. The reason I’m mentioning this is because in another thread I said I would know more after some months went by and let ya’ll know. I’m a woman of my word. Betty P.S......58% sold are plants.
  8. To better understand RM vs RF battle i'd like to share my 2018 sales: - $$$ RM sales: 35% of total year revenues - $$ RM sales: 60% - $ RM sales: 5% I just started to sell RF on Alamy so i dont't have any sales at the moment . What's yours?
  9. I always thought that an image can be either RM or RF and if we labelled it as one at a library, we had to stick to the same RM/RF classification if we then sent it to any other library. But I just I came across a library that offers images with the option for the buyer to select whether to buy as RF or RM. I was surprised to see this. What does everyone think of that? Andy
  10. ..again, i'm sorry! I apologise for debating this again and again but i was looking at your ports, people who confirm daily in "slow month" or "post your positive results" or "which is your <month>---something" they're good sellers. For the following categories i've noticed some of you use RM, some RF (maybe Editorial) and i really couldn't find a reason to stay relaxed on that or to say to my mind "now i' see the light!!!" - Food - Landscapes without people or brands - Wildlife / Animals - Not branded objects How could you explain the RM vs RF usage then? Technically and legally speaking, each of the above category pictures could go in the RF market, but.... many uses RM (as i do). Which are your thoughts? Thanks in advance to share these.
  11. Hi, guys. I would like to ask RM or RF sells better your image. What kind of rights do you prefer to check your images on Alamy?
  12. Discovered an additional toggle box underneath RF today, giving buyers the option to include or exclude "editorial RF".
  13. Trying to come to grips with the new image manager. I have two pseudo's one for RF and one for RM. The default appears to be RF and the pseudo is correct for that. But when uploading via the image manager how do I change the psuedo and license if that batch is intended to be RM? It appears those can be changed after the fact, but the image is at that point already on sale, and I thought you could not change the license after the image was on sale? Maybe it is just that simple but I'm confused. Would anyone care to clarify please?
  14. Can someone tell me how this is an RM sale? Country: Worldwide Usage: iQ sale: Single company - multiple use editorial only Industry sector: Education Start: 24 March 2017 End: Unlimited This is the second one I have had. Both are iQ sales. I know there is special licensing with iQ, and you are usually selling to the company that owns the brand in the image, but sill, is this not RF? With multiple use and unlimited time, how could this be classified as RM? Jill
  15. Just wondering how many of you gave a try to RF instead of RM. I mean, did you try some batch of pictures like RF after a long time of RM? Any increase of revenues?
  16. I have editorial photographs that I want to license as RF but they are editorial. My understanding a couple of months ago was that we will be able to upload editorial Rf images soon. Has it happened yet or was I mistaken?
  17. Hi, I started a few months ago to sell MicroStock photography... I'm stating to wondering ; how can I sell an image that could become a cover for a book, a music album or even a mobile App cover ? Thanks
  18. I've read about property releases in the forum and the Alamy contributor pages, but still a bit confused about this. I've seen photos like this skyline that are listed as RF, but I assume property releases were not obtained for all buildings pictured. I have many photos with buildings in them, but no property releases. Can I upload them and mark them as not containing property that needs to be released for commercial use, and select RF?
  19. hey i'm new at alamy. I want to know should i RM or RF for my nature shots, Which one license type should be more profitable for me Thanks
  20. I wonder if its time to really fix this issue. Ive come across another contributors portfolio of some 670 images - all labelled RF, when in fact very few of them are eligible for RF. Does it affect other contributors to allow these errors to go unaddressed? Should something be done?
  21. Hi Guys, About to do some model release photos in studio and got thinking how pedantic we are supposed to get with the model and property releases? What really got me thinking was I have no problem getting the model release but what about the clothes she may be wearing? Do I need a release from River Island, M&S, Next? Also what about jewellery? Make-up? Surely these all come up as property? Tell me to get back to key wording and stop thinking so much and creating problems that are not there Happy Easter Regards Paul Thompson Edit No it is not an excuse to ask her to remove all of the above, lol
  22. Hi, How far do you go with property releases? Say I get a model in and she signs the release, what about the clothes she is wearing, do I need to got to Primark for the t-shirt and jeans? Thaks
  23. Hi, I am new here and don't know the exact difference between RM and RF licenses. I chose RF for my first 8 submissions, but searching for keyword like "Boeing 747" on Alamy I saw that the majority of photos were RM. Which one should I choose for my next photos, which one is better or is there any price difference between them? Thanks, Canonist
  24. How do you all choose between RM and RF when submitting images to Alamy? Which have you had more success with as far as sales?
  25. hi all, i'm wondering how to setup my wildlife images, if better RM or RF. Animals in general are something which sold better as RM (low volume/high sales) or as RF (high volumes) ? I know every picture is different, so which considerations do you make in order to select the above? 1) Generic image (RF) or more specific image (lion closeup VS lion at the zoo for i.e.) 2) Background which could affect the category (beach portrait VS indoor portrait for i.e.) 3) Selective focus (RF images are often with a larger depth of field) 4) ... what else? thanks in advance
