Wahooo First Sale Ever

Recommended Posts

I did it! I made my first sale ever. Was really struggling yesterday with this digital world and all if its file sizes, compressions, formats, file management, softwares, blah blah blah. Just drowning in complication. Then today I made a sale. Onward. 🤩indigenous-or-native-american-women-marching-with-a-banner-with-fists-in-air-2019-womens-march-market-street-san-francisco-california-usa-TRJ5KY.jpg

You have to go to your Account Balance tab.

You'll see if there is a distributor commission.

Oh. It says Alamy commission 50%. Does that mean it's a direct sale? Direct sale from Alamy?

Direct then. That's good news. My sales to Germany tend to be via a distributor.

Cool. Thanks for walking me through that. Haha. I'm finding this whole process very challenging.

Congratulations. That's a good start, especially with less than 200 images. It looks as if you've been uploading more editorial images to your collection, so additional sales should come along.

Well done!  I was 400 pics before I made my first sale.  Hopefully it'll be the first of many for you.

Well done. It's a nice shot and getting any sales at all with only 196 images on file is quite an achievement.

Good capture, I think the best from all you shot at the protest.

What exactly are "editorial images"?

I feel like I'm pretty slow uploading. I started 5 months ago.

 

I also got my first two zooms in the past month, so maybe things are starting to happen.

I was going to try translate that at some point, thank you! Will there be any chance of finding out where/if it gets published?

Thank you for the feedback. I always felt that picture was particularly strong.

Generally speaking, images that might be used in books (e.g. textbooks and travel guides), to illustrate articles in magazines and newspapers, or on editorial websites. This type of imagery does best on Alamy. I'd say that most of your recent images fit the editorial category, the earlier landscapes, etc., not so much (you never know, though).
