A $250 book sale popped up today. Encouraging to see. Thanks, Alamy.

 

Well done John!  I also had a $250 book sale that popped in last night and at the same time it was refunded.  Like giving a kid a piece of candy and then yanking it out of his mouth before he could get one lick on it!!  I hope yours sticks around!!

We all know that's a way to get wonderful pictures ;-)

That's always frustrating. Perhaps it will at least come back in another form.

 

I hadn't seen one of these for some time. Mine is still sticking (fingers crossed).

Well done John, good to know that they still exist!

 

I've joined the party with a $195 sale today, don't know the end use as yet. Have to say that my aesthetic sense must be dubious because it's not an image I rate, so doubly well done the sales team!

 

Actually several of my 3 fig sales have been of images that I don't particularly like, and might have been in two minds about at the upload stage. Perhaps I need to go on a course on aesthetic awareness.....

Congratulations. Generally speaking, if I like one of my images, I know that it will probably never license.

 

Moral of story: if you dislike an image, upload it right away. B)

Excellent day today with 2 sales each for $330 gross, 2 each for $80 gross and 1 for $60 gross - none via distributors 

 

Best income day on Alamy for a few years! Hope for all!

Very encouraging Doc, especially set against the tales of woe elsewhere!

The gods must be feeling generous this month. I've had three  $100+ sales in a row (including the $250 one reported above) during the past week.

 

P.S. Can't recommend any meds, though. Would if I could. B)

More sales of my Pippa pics this morning - 4 for $30 gross each.  Times are good!

 

Will you stop it! ;) :D

You may as well scrap your other images and start trailing the popular royals!

Seriously, well done. Pleased for you.

I can't believe how almost viral these pictures have gone - and to think I nearly didn't shoot her.  Glad I did!  Thanks.

Hi, first post here. Not sure if it's very positive but I'm getting better results every year, despite my small number of images, which is finally getting me a bit more interested in stock photography. Thing is, my type of photography is not much typical "stock" I imagine, and I only work with Rights Managed. Perhaps I should change to Royalty Free for the more common images? Not sure though...

 

My earnings so far this year are $1.137 gross.

Careful with that. You'll get a couple of blacked-out 4x4s screaming to a halt outside your house with comments like that.

 

I have to thank the royals for being probably my second most popular selling subject after aircraft, but nothing like your values sadly.

Hahaha, good call.  You've got me nervous now!

 

I'm stunned at the values my pics of Pippa are getting, she's just popular at the moment.  I've waited years for 'the' pics - I guess I now have them.  Lucky me!

She's been popular ever since men saw her at Kate's wedding. In fact she almost outshone her on that day.

How could she not be popular after wearing 'that' dress?!  Although she has admitted since it was a tad too tight. :D:wub:

Wonderful images. You have some amazing jaguar shots. Keep up the good work! I don't really know much about RF. I have stuck with RM for my images too. I would suggest putting the scientific names of animals in the caption as well as the keywords. People do search by scientific names and I think having it in both places does help your position. Also I suggest putting both singular and plurals in your keywords. Someone looking for one jaguar might actually search using "jaguars".
