I like Alamy and am glad they're doing well. I just don't think my work is right for the buyers they have. With 600 images I'm pocketing about $10 per month. Thats an RPIPM of .01 cent. Not a profitable use of time unfortunately.

Same here. I get a sale every blue moon despite constantly uploading more images. Trying to work out their style and hopefully will get there but 3 sales this year is disappointing.

Where is that part of the success then? :) Almost everybody on this thread isn't very happy with sales.

Almost everybody on ANY thread seems not to be happy with sales......I think the Alamy "style" is different to typical Mstock..now if only I could work out what it is........

maby its the general low sales maybe its the 125$ sales that never been paid.

25% increase? Not in my account. Not last month and not the whole year.

Wade through the Alamy forum threads about sales and you can see who is doing well.  Like a lot of sites, most people doing well don't come here to brag about it.  Just 2 RF sales so far this month for me but my cut is almost $70 and that is better than most of the microstock sites.

Congratulations Alamy.  I had a good Sept there.  Glad to know the whole site is doing well.  Hope sales continue to increase.

Sales on Alamy can be reported months later. So September might have been good but we will see the result of that in the coming months.
I had a picture licensed for one use in a single editorial article on 07 November 2015 and the sale appeared in my Alamy account on 13 June 2016.
Let's wait and see...

I got about the same amount from 4 sales, this month, but this is worse than most of my other microstock sites 😉.  The poll on the right is close to my reality, except that even 123RF is better than Alamy. Actually it is about 3 times better. 😉

I don't know about their 25% y-o-y revenue increase, but still patiently waiting for my 1st sale on Alamy after almost two years.  :o

Another example of a stock photo company that's doing well overall, but which has just too many contributors for it to be worthwhile for many of them.

September 2016 was simply our best sales month ever.


Will you accept video FTP upload soon? Sending HDD seems to be like 1990's.

Also, no 4K...   >:(

I have 1000 videos there and not sold a single clip.  I think Alamy is to late to the party for video.

What's up with their royalty free editorial? Wasn't it supposed to come in September?

They first mentioned that the new tools were "soon" to be released back in March. They then said that they are "in the final stages of testing" these tools" back in September. It seems the have the most stretched definition of "soon" I've ever come across :( I know it's important to iron out things before releasing them, but first, companies with such potential can mobilize and release new products/tools within relatively short period of time, and secondly, no one can make a perfect bug-less IT product, you have to go through the beta mode and iron it out with the help of users; why wait so long?

And why announcing the news if things are not ready at all? Liars

4000 images online, and one sale back in July.  Not much success here so far.

On my side around 10k images (vectors) and 39 sales so far in 2016. Not a huge revenue but certainly worth it for me as an illustrator.

Perhaps Alamy buyers don't want your files their style is not typical Microstock

Just over a hundred sales so far this year with Alamy but the $ value per license has been lower than previous years. It can be good but it is a different market compared to the likes of FT and SS. Although SS do sell editorial and may eat into Alamy's share of the market.

They are more truthful than most of the sites I use that either keep us in the dark or tell us something good is going to happen only to find it's actually bad news.

Having seen how long it took them to start selling video after they started hinting about it, I no longer think anything is going to happen quickly.  It would be good if they could work faster after hinting about it but I really don't mind.

Yes I think they are basically honest and good guys but sometimes its better to keep quiet until you have something concrete to release
