Best selling categories?

Recommended Posts

What are your best selling categories (as listed in the Alamy Image Manager)?

 

Mine are Travel, Architecture and Interiors, and Art and Artwork.

My best selling categories are Landscapes, followed by Wildlife and then Cityscapes.

Then come Plants, Lifestyle, People. I don't have as much coverage for those.

 

'Cityscapes' is not an official category in AIM but it's one of mine :D I actually wish it was because I never know what existing category to select for those shots.

I don't know, I don't use them.

Travel, drink, architecture probably.

'Landscape>Architecture?

And... is it 'travel' when it's the end of your street? I suppose it is, for someone.

Yes, it's all relative. I'm not even sure what a "travel" image is.

 

That said, travel images usually overlap with other categories, which I suppose is the main reason that the category does so well.

A town is definitely not 'landscape', some pix have no particular 'architecture' in them, 'travel' I suppose as you say it is for someone.

For example, here's a small town in Surrey that is sometimes searched. I haven't selected any category because I haven't found anything suitable.

Absolutely. When I said my landscapes category is the winner, a large part of it covers travel. I select both categories in AIM.

 

Regarding the pic I posted above, this could be travel for someone but not for me because that's where I live when in the UK.
