Travelshots Posted November 8, 2018 Share Posted November 8, 2018 (edited) I know this is not about Alamy but it is a relevant piece of news in the stock photo world, which many of you may have read. . Flickr agency is now limiting uploads to 1000 images unless you buy an annual "PRO" account (50US$) and deleting images over 1000 if you do not pay up. My sales seem to have plummeted recently on Alamy not for any particular reason that I can find. There are now millions of images that are uploaded by non professionals some of which are excellent , and many are rubbish and lots of duplicates. Alamy surely needs to prune it's collection , one to save storage and two to make the many similars and duplicates to be removed. I think this strategy would be a good idea, and if implemented I would be quite willing to pay an annual fee to have a large collection online. Alamy is great agency but dilution of content must make searching more time consuming. for clients. Alamy would gain something over Shutterstock etc if the collection was tightened up and advertised as such. Would Alamy like to comment ?
