This is getting absolutely ridiculous. 5 out of the first 6 sales of the month are either PU or Presentation. Hello?????

Businesses are in paralysis and people are at home with time on their hands.

 

So it could be that?

 

I've only had one sale since March 26th and that was non-PU. I think that we might become grateful for any sale soon and you have had 6 so far in April so are doing well!

I didn't have 6 sales in April. This THREAD shows the first 6 reported sales for April.

 

People at home doing Presentations?? C'mon...

I had 4 Presentations last month, and 9 since the beginning of the year.

I busted quite a few PU/Presentations in the past. 

 

I wish I could share your view Ian but...

Okay, I was trying to be positive. 😊

 

People are at home. Why shouldn't they be creating presentations, gift cards, whatever?

 

My son is a teacher. He is still creating resources at home though admittedly he isn't spending money on stock pics.

Nice to get an early sale in the month even if it is relative low editorial one. Those were the days when you could go out and mingle with others....

Similar to what I experienced last month so I've just asked Alamy to convert ALL my images as not available for PU and I've just opted out of Distribution which is getting sales at NU value.

If most sales are of this type I am not going to turn them down. Personal Use is better than most newspaper sales.

 

My guess would be that this sort of direct sale to the public is going to have to become a key part of stock.

A few months down the line we may all be pleased of them.

That's my look on it too. I'll take every penny/cent that's going and be grateful for it.

and if Sales helps ranking of image, i'll take the push as a marketing tool, provided it respects the licence agreement

Thanks, no, I didn't know about that one.  How did you find it?  I'm finding Google image search to be useless these days.

It's called personal/home use.

With everybody working from home this may be leading to some confusion. 🤣
