percentages, Alamy's take

Recommended Posts

I won't be able to continue contributing my time, effort, skills and photography to Alamy if you decrease the percentage of each sale that I get. It gets more expensive each year to continue contributing and over the years, Alamy has taken an increasing amount of each sale. I understand that you need to run your business, but understand that I simply can't afford it if you decide to take a yet larger percentage. Not a threat..  a reality.

Don't forget that if you're able to check the "Only available on Alamy" box in the image manager, you'll still get the 50% commission for sales of those images.

thanks! alamy also let me know.. and yes, all my images are only available on Alamy, and now the “only available on Alamy” button is selected for all of my images.. I didn’t know it mattered to the commission structure!

There are some exceptions -- e.g. images of "artwork" can't be made exclusive as well images in the public domain.
