M.Chapman Posted January 16, 2015 Share Posted January 16, 2015 I'm puzzled. Why is the layout of the new Alamy home page almost identical to the Shutterstock home page? Were they designed by the same agency? And... I really don't understand Alamy categories. If I scroll down the home page and click on the "Architecture" category, I'm presented with what claims to be a "curated selection"...... of 2,247,869 images! This is almost the same as the number of images I get by simply searching on Alamy for "Architecture" with No People which yields 2,247,745 images. Where's the "curation"? The image order seems to be different, but there doesn't seem to be much "selection" going on. Believing I'm now inside a collection, if I type something new in the search box it simply reverts back to a search on all of Alamy, unless of course I leave architecture in the box too. Just like I'd have to do if you were searching normally. So what's the point of categories, or have I missed something? I did wonder if I should ensure I had "Architecture" or "Travel" etc. in my keywords, so my images would appear in these category collections, but there seems little point.
