It might be worth emailing Alamy to ask about this, but you will find that images often sell for much less than the calculator price. Buyers can negotiate special prices, bulk deals, etc.

It isn't.

Alamy is your agent- it decides the prices. It's in the contract.

I can't speak to UK law, but in the US there's no law against asking questions of people with whom you have contracts.

 

And congratulations on your first sale, Virender!

At one time, RF prices, which supposedly are based on file size, were often higher than RM, which of course they should be. Now everything has been turned upside down. Photo-buyers can license RF images for almost nothing on micro sites. It's a topsy-turvy world.

No, of course not, but it's a question whether it is worth doing so. We all know about these sales - but also sales at  much higher prices.

I don't like red arrows to people who give an honest reply, though the tone sometimes might be a little influenced by the large number of times the same reply has been given. There are hundreds of threads about this in the forum to be searched.

 

Best,

Agreed, they always punctuate a day on the end of a runway. There's nothing common about them and their skill always sets a precedent for others to follow. 😏
