PA to move all photography to the Alamy platform

News article today on Photo Archive News: https://photoarchivenews.com/news/press-association-moving-all-photo-assets-to-a-single-platform-alamy/

Whether this is good news for Alamy contributors, bad news, or will make no difference we will have to wait and see.

Jo Ann Snover:
Interesting. This could bring more traffic to the platform (good). In general, editorial and commercial images don't compete with one another much, so if there's extra competition, it would probably be for Alamy's other editorial content.

This quote left me wondering just what the new objectives are...

"As part of this evolution, there are proposals to reorganise the business in line with Alamy’s new strategic objectives"

This is the new managing director's LinkedIn page. She seems to be from the editorial side of the business...

Anything is better than what's going on.

Seeing microstock prices but midstock volumes for the past 4 months.

ShadySue:
Not sure if less volume (depending on whether 'our' work is in direct competition with the PA offerings) at the same prices is going to be 'better'. Whether more buyers will come to the site and that will benefit us remains to be seen.

I agree, sales aren't improving, and prices are getting very low: though I see some people still reporting $$$ sales (maybe gross?).

I'm sure there will be some very "exciting news" before too long  :(
