Hi Alted. Three years seems to be quite long enough to find your answer, especially as you have thousands of backgrounds images online ;) Why don't you give us the answer?

Hi Arletta!

I am on Alamy since 2014, but I actively only since January 2017 :)

 

How are you satisfied with the sale on Alamy?

... I'm honestly amazed so many similars were accepted....

 

Exactly, Alamy used to recommend to upload up to 5 similar images, not more. Do they do it still? If not, if they accept hundreds of the same, maybe it's official "all about quantity now" ?

 

Alted, if you'd do the selection, you will have around 500-1000 images actually. Clients can change the color with one click if they need to. You can continue to produce over 10k similar images and will barely see sales...

Thank you very much for your suggestions...wipe excess background these days, I'll make a selection.

 

Can anyone tell me how to sell items on isolated white?

I don't know if anyone can tell you how to sell, but Alamy has a auto filter that detects cut outs if a buyer uses that filter.  But the subject has to totally surrounded by white on all sides.  Won't be detected if the subject is white on 3 sides but attached to a side or top or bottom.

Or if there is insufficient white space around the image, in my experience.

I took your advice and wiped almost all textures...the problem is to completely wipe out the portfolio has to go 6 months.

Thank you all for your answers and suggestions !!!

 

Keep sending only picture!

I work mainly texture and background, I've got a gallery of more than 90000 wallpaper...https://www.shutterstock.com/g/altedart?language=en

I'm new in this type of work but a fast learner...  ;)

 

Three things I marvel at here:

1. You, that you manage all the work and not duplicate it when submiting batches.

2. Shutterstock (or any other agency) that accepts all the similarities.

3. Clients who must be really patient and desperated to go through this...
