While I have decided to focus mostly on submitting my content here. I will be leaving a couple of microstock accounts running for the more generic and rubbish stuff.

 

I was considering using Alamy for travel/landscape/street/etc, and hosting my wildlife images on a dedicated wildlife/natural history type agency.

 

But now not sure if that really makes much sense, and wondering if wouldn't be better off just posting all here...

 

Opinions?

but it's pretty saturated from what I see...my stuff has only been viewed twice as it's buried way down in the search results.

Since you asked, I would suggest to put (almost) all everywhere and RF.

Putting more descriptive info (including locations) in your captions would be a good idea if you decide to stay with Alamy. Also, GDXP07  doesn't look like a Costa Rice sunrise to me. Wrong keywords as well. Just happened to notice...

You will get various and contradicting opinions here.

 

Use your common sense all the way. Image editors will often shop as you do. Royalty Free -  try to interpret the name. Images that sell on editorial sites are often very different to what is watered down and sell at micro sites. 

 

Then just choose what you prefer.

Agreed. Have been looking a bit more into specialist wildlife agencies

I'm trying to find a balance here. One thing I have realised is I don't particularly want to be listing in a dozen different places, and won't be using microstock for anything but left-overs, and even then, I will only be using agencies that have lightroom plugins - having a full time job currently, I want to simplify my admin tasks as much as possible. And it's so much easier managing everything through lightroom for me.

Those images are supposed to be deleted. I have removed everything to start over - I never had that much here to begin with.

Indeed. I think I have made up my mind to try and find a dedicated wildlife agency for those particular subjects. Everything else will go on here.
