I'd like to see 'net' as a minimum/preferred, but would also like to continue seeing the gross too.

I would also like to be able to see both, as with prices dwindling, need to be able to see if maintaining gold level.  Still trying to muster the enthusiasm to upload more images.

I have not uploaded any images since 5th August 2021. Seem to have lost the enthusiasm to process the images I have taken since then. Some bloody good ones too.

 

Haven't even uploaded any to P4M for some time either.   -  ????????? ( that means I don't know why ).

A change or two in the graph would be interesting.

Allan seems like you've lost your mojo a bit but hopefully it will return soon so you will get your good images uploaded and for sale.  Onwards and upwards.....If I see sales on my dashboard and more zooms it makes me happy😄

I rarely look at the dashboard.  I keep the "Net revenue sales report" page open and use the Excel download option to get the sums for gross and net from the spreadsheet.  But I agree that Alamy could make it easier.

I find that with all the confusing refunding and re-licensing of images at 40%, it's difficult to come up with an accurate picture of earnings. I've basically given up.

and then you get a 24% one.

Now that we receive such a minuscule share of our Alamy earnings, surely it's time that the overview graph on the dashboard should show our actual net receipts after deductions, rather than the total revenue for a given period? It would be helpful to have a more honest picture of things.

 

Alex

Indeed, I agree. In fact I made that suggestion in another Forum section recently. No response as yet.

Other thing the change.  The data range for Measures of the dashboard to actually reflect the range of data.  For example it currently states that it INCLUDES October 5th, but when you click on details it shows that day has not been included yet.

It was only my second of the month, and the first one was actually a fake -- i.e. a resale of a refund.

 

I see that another "real" sale has been invoiced today, so hang in there...Sleepy Hang In There GIF by Ritter Sport

Only one sale for me so far, this month, and it was an album cover.  I deleted all my album and book covers back in June but I keep getting sales.  So far I have grossed around $2000 from covers but now I don’t want risk any legal issues!

I've not uploaded since this whole debacle started...only having a small port it hits me hard...Still made a few more sales, but then that takes forever to clear. Almost at the point of getting my 1st ever payment...Almost. So how to get the mojo back? Any thoughts anyone?

I do agree I'm feeling the same way in not getting many sales and almost lost the mojo The only thing that keeps me going is not wanting to back to my previous job Still going to keep uploading and in a couple of weeks hopefully adding a lot of photos and see what happens Going to cost a lot more than I'll get back

Hi Jason. Just keep uploading and you'll see results. I've added steadily to my port since 2015 and I've had increasing license numbers each year. This year is also going to be my highest ever for fees.

I hadn't been uploading either since the contract change. Then I happened to take a photo the other day that appeared to have little competition on Alamy and IMHO is better than the other examples so I couldn't resist uploading it. I added some more images to make up a batch submission, but it's clear I'm now going to be very selective in what I upload, otherwise I feel it's just not worth the effort to process and keyword. I'm still uploading elsewhere though.

My plan was to go non-exclusive ( which i have ) and diversify into other stocks but its seems to have ruined the interest. Which is strange because i was never interested in the money, just the enjoyment of doing something i really enjoy. Maybe the idea of being taken for a ride after all the effort it takes and seeing the community broken by corporate greed. But i do miss it and as usual agree with you Steve to just push through this and get back on the horse...

I have to agree, the impact on the community, the voices we have now lost, the overall morale actually is probably what has affected me the most when i look back..  This morning i had an image in the category of "i'll upload random stuff just to see, but don't expect to sell" which i did early on that actually licenced and i can't even be bothered to share it in the image sold.

Exactly, its what seperated Alamy from the rest. They don't get it...Anyway, you have a really strong portfolio and i'd like to see your licensed image... ;)

actually i just had a look at the image, and because you asked i will have to post it in the sold thread, now i wonder if you are the one who licenced it 😉
