Had an Alamywhack today

Recommended Posts

I had an Alamywhack today, whereby a two word search only returned 1 image.

 

It was zoomed as well so hopefully it will turn into a sale.

 

I think that's the first Alamywhack i've had!

 

Anybody else had any?

Strangely enough I had one yesterday too. It was a four word search which produced 14 images of mine which was also the sum of the total views with one zoom.

I will wait in anticipation.....

Not an Alamywhack but similar two word search with 25 images showing of which about half were not even for the search requested.

 

Guess what I did?

More or less. It actually returned three images, all of which were mine. It's very satisfying when you see this:

I'm still waiting for the sale to drop in though :(

I had one last week that only brought up two very similar pics of mine - if I edited more ruthlessly it would have been (and yes, it resulted in a sale)

Four in the last month.  Three were for the same subject so I suppose it only really counts as two.  None zoomed :(

 

I do get quite a few where my images are the only matches on Alamy but, knowing that, I'll upload two or three variations on the theme so, strictly speaking, not Alamywhacks.  They often turn into sales.  The benefits of shooting obscure subjects :)

Search "Obscure" brings up 35,426 images.;)

There are still some surprising whackworthy gaps on Alamy. I spend a lot of time lurking around Westminster and I am often surprised how few/absent are the pics of some MPs. The pic I mentioned above was of a Tory MP and I was amazed that there were NO images of him on Alamy before my two. Mind you, his name is spellt funny so he might be there somewhere misspellt.

Just checked - 'Alamywhack' brings up no results. A gap for someone there.

Had one yesterday. Very specific query (with 4 words) and only 1 image on Alamy. One zoom. No sales as yet.
