$171 to India of all places, only my second there, one of my regulars for a direct mail handout "corporate cards/invites." Best for a while.

I had almost given up on selling images in general when a good sale appeared on the 13th, even by the "old standards". It was worth more than all my other sales the last year combined (not that many sales to be honest). 7 years since I have last had a similar license fee for a single image. Motivation is up again. :-)

Just realised that my QC rank is now 3 stars, must have gone up after my latest submission - which passed QC in lightning speed.

- first sale on a week-end! + it’s a picture I shot recently, end of december

- first book cover - credited but the sale didn’t appear yet on Alamy

- not sure if it qualifies as positive result, but had a 100 CTR: 1 view/1 zoom ;-)

- one sale, this month, that equals a typical month - even though it is through a distributor... crossing my fingers that I won’t get the typical refund thing...

 

Gives a bit of hope after a lousy november and january!!!

Two sales on a Monday morning before 8am?! What's going on?! Not that I'm complaining! Both decent amounts - one north of $120 one mid-50s, both recently zoomed (I tend to have a higher average of zoomed sales than others who report here). The higher value one was of a unique view of a common landmark in my town, the other was of the same landmark from a lesser-used viewpoint and had been recently re-processed to take advantage of improved software and (I like to think) my better skills. ;)

 

A very good and unexpected start to the week. :)

Very happy to see my picture from a very hairy journey home over the A66 on Saturday on the front page of The Independent - a first for me! :D   It's changed a 'wrong place wrong time' type journey to 'right place right time"!

I need to do that with some of my images. Did you just reupload them to QC and copy the tags over, or did you find another way to do that?

Just re-uploaded as normal. Revisited tags to ensure that they included (and excluded) everything I wanted, and added the Alamy code for the old image in case it was in anyone's lightbox, before setting that to delete.

If you simply want them replaced, email MS the pairs of references and they'll do it. Instant delete. Just include the old refs as Los says.

Thanks for that. If they have to do that manually, i imagine this is for a few selected images. Not sure show many I’d like to replace at this stage.

Cheers, thanks. Good to know it can be done, if somewhat tedious.
