I have a background in teaching, so I don't mind students having access to images at low prices (but maybe not this low). However, I don't know why they would need full-size files "in perpetuity" to illustrate essays and projects. Surely smaller files would do the trick for these types of educational use.

On more than one occasion I have found Alamy's pricing structure strange but either we live with it or remove our images I suppose. I could say a lot more but won't however I think in fairness I must say there are many worse photo libraries out there.

I have some of my images included in this offering from Britannica - they are all low res and limited to education use by subscribers. 

 

I don't understand why Alamy don't offer something similar in conjunction with major educational publishers.

And then try to 'upsell' once this new market has been developed.

Always good to have a sale near the beginning of the month.

'Multiple editorial', mid-$$, 50-year licence...can someone please check on reuses for me?🤣 🤣🤣

This was really one of those photos that I thought would never sell in a month of Sundays. Goodness knows how someone found it, keywording and caption are terrible for this. First sale of the month, yay!

Low $$

PU??

Good suggestion. Are the Britannica images free? If not, what does Britannica typically charge?

 

Low-cost, low-res images for student use makes sense. However, why give away full-size files for $0.99 when it isn't necessary. Pardon me for saying so, but this isn't fair to contributors.

Not free, they charge a subscription fee to users.  Quite a hefty one I would think but they don't advertise what it is up front.

 

A share of the subscription money is then available to reward image providers - each 'use' of an image is recorded and attracts a micro payment - View, Zoom, Download, Sent by Email etc - all this user activity is then tallied up and used to divide the pot amongst providers.

Thanks. Sounds interesting. A controlled subscription model makes a good deal of sense for this type of usage.

Good grief! They are surely not expecting the COVID crisis to go on THAT long?

For an editorial education web use for mid $$.  A Tae Kwan Do class (an early digital shot for me).  These kids would be in their early to mid twenties now.

I was interested in all the orange roofs and looked up the image to learn about them. They aren't even mentioned in your caption or keywords. Is this a special housing district of some kind? Just curious. I'm not familiar with Singapore.
