Pseudonyms and picture credit names


Recommended Posts

I create pseudos to allow me to split my images in groups, however I would prefer to have my real name rather than my pseudo displayed  to buyers and on any images used where a credit is given. Is it possible to provide this as an option?

You could always include your real name in your pseudonym.

Hi John, I do that, but would still prefer just a name. I also have one pseudo I would prefer to change but Alamy have said they can't do that.

I changed one of my pseudonyms by creating the one I want, batch editing all those images allocated to the old one, moving them to the new one, and then deleting the pseudonym I didn't want anymore.

Andy wouldn't that affect your ranking? The particular pseudo I want to change has a really good position under searches which I don't want to lose.

I was in a similar situation some time ago.  There is no quick fix but I created a new pseudo with just a few images then added any images that received zooms in measures.  After about 6 months the new pseudo had a few sales, quite a lot for the number of images, so it jumped up to page one in the ranking.  I was then able to transfer images into it which I am doing gradually.
