Alamy Posted June 28, 2022 Share Posted June 28, 2022 Hi All, We're starting a new thread so we can explain a little more about the new collections you can see from the Alamy Home Page and how they work. We’ve had a big marketing plan in place around the launch of these new collections and weren’t able to go into more significant detail in advance of this. We're still committed to promoting and selling editorial images but at the same time, we realise the need to be flexible as a business in offering both Editorial and Creative images to a wide and varied customer base. We're currently promoting creative content to appeal to our creative customers. To do this we've adapted how users can navigate the site and in essence we've added on four additional options for customers to refine their searches within the collection, while still retaining the traditional way of searching for those who wish to search as before. A way to see them is like having one of four additional filters added which can be applied when searching for images. This won’t affect how you contribute your images to the Alamy site or the processes for uploading. The four collections have been put together so that different types of customer can find the style of imagery they want, more efficiently and more quickly. These are the four categories: Ultimate Collection: These images have been hand-picked on an image-by-image basis to appeal to our most creative customers based on existing and emerging trends. Images in this collection have a higher list price point than images in the Vital, Foundation, and Uncut collections. They may or may not be model released. Vital Collection Images in this collection are all model released, where there are people, and offer our customers a safe collection of up-to-date lifestyle and commercially usable imagery. Foundation Collection Images in this collection are more creatively functional and simple than images in the other collections allowing a lot of freedom to creative customers who want to have more control over the way they use imagery. Uncut Collection Images in this collection can be for commercial use and are a mix of images that may or may not currently fit into the Ultimate, Vital or Foundation collections. We are still reviewing images in this collection as an ongoing process and may add them to other collections in future. As with any update to a website there can be IT issues, but please bear with us as we fix these, and you can report them to our Contributor Relations Team. We hope this explains further about how these collections have been compiled and welcome your constructive feedback. Thanks, Alamy 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
