What do you like best?

The quality of the photos and videos is what I like the most. We good awesome value for the money. The prices are low enough that we can acquire many professional media files for use in many types of internal and public-facing business materials. The website is easy to use to find, buy and download photos. We don't have to interact with an actual person though support team members are readily available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Alamy has been a really great source for stock media. I don't have any complaints as of yet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're really picky about pricing, you should search other stock media websites for the same media files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can quickly search for, browse, buy and download large image and video files that are high quality. We have access to stock media files created by professionals.

What do you like best?

Absolutely nothing. I only made 1 sale in the past year. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You have to contact them to close your contributor account and they just ignore you and don't respond. I don't know what to do any more and will have to waste my time and money hiring a lawyer just to do something as simple as shutting my account. Absolutely pathetic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Add a function for your users to instantly close their own account. You claim that contributors own the license to all the vectors they contribute yet you give them no control over these vectors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They've made my life more complicated and are losing me money every day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like best is ironically what I also like least. That is the sheer number of photos that come up when you type in a simple search phrase. I like having so many options to choose from, but it can take a great deal of time. However, they have a great deal of wonderful looking photos for every subject imaginable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As I stated it's time-consuming to search through so many pages and pages of photos when you type in a search term. Perhaps they could add even more types of filters which would greatly limit the number of pictures that you have to scroll through. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be as specific as possible when entering search terms. Use a number of modifiers. Otherwise it will bring up too many pages of pictures to search through. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need attractive and professional pictures for a number of projects that I work on and I know that I'll find something just right at Alamy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
