geogphotos Posted July 28, 2019 Share Posted July 28, 2019 The main thing for me is that I have removed images from a couple of underperforming agencies ( that took six months), then had to go through a spreadsheet of 60,000 images indicating for each one whether each image was exclusive or non- exclusive. I have circa 18,000 images which are non-exclusive and which will stay that way. During all this long, tedious process I have lost out as all sales have been at 40% even if the images have actually been exclusive to Alamy. So, the commission change has not been too popular with me! All my 2019 images are either exclusive to Alamy or for the more recent ones only on my own website. I am not sure what to do with them because it does feel like a mountain to climb with low fees, and them falling all the time! I have a small but growing number of exclusive galleries on my website all ready to be sent by ftp to either/or Alamy/another big agency but, as I say, it feels a bit pointless. I hardly get any site traffic so that isn't exactly going to work either. A quandary. I simply wondered what other people have experienced and are thinking.
