    I should have asked the lady, but would someone be able to identify this dog breed please? They were absolutely lovely dogs.

  4. Helloooo, anyone home?

    Same today with a lot of single image uploads from one event badly captioned and flooding the pages.
  5. Another tweet today from Alamy to confuse contributors regarding discoverability. How many new contributors come to the forum asking about this? It's clearly confusing, and I'd be confused too if I were new to Alamy. The wrong term is being used. What it tells people is that being "green" will lead to your images being more likely to be "discovered", which is not the case at all. It's great to have a way to flag images where the optional data has not been completed, or with only a few tags, but calling it "discoverability" and having that tag threshold so high, and keeping on pushing it on Twitter, is hurting everyone. This is not just the rant of one person, and a forum search shows that it's what just about every poster to these forums thinks. Geoff.

  8. I haven't yet made back the €1 or two I left a street mime in Düsseldorf four years ago. However, I have made back the price of the beer consumed at the bierstube I took the photographs from.

    You can't see it, Betty, but I'm blushing. Actually, I have a beard, so nobody can see it really. Best wishes.
  10. Took the 'Political' black cab taxi tour in Belfast a couple of years ago - visiting the Falls Road and Shankill Road areas among others. Well worth it, not least for the craic - £30 for three people but we bunged him a few quid more. Was supposed to be an hour but we were out for nearly three. Worth it for stock - no. Some of my photos of the famous political murals were removed by Alamy in the 'Great Mural Cull'.
  11. I'm not sure I'd want such a tool. I think there are relatively few images where all these related words would be relevant - though I suppose starting with a full list and deleting some might be easier than thinking them up from scratch. OK, yes, it could be useful.

    Interesting!!!
  13. I believe this very much depends on the quality of the individual that gives you the tour. You may want to thouroughly check before you go and commit. I did that in Cambodia if willing, where, what year, length of tour, cost? private tour for just myself, couple of days, approx 300-400USD/day was price all inclusive or additional fees? inclusive of meals, transport, a western photographer who lives there and his Cambodian driver We did quite a couple of 100KM's - guess around 800 which translates to ~500miles) my own entrance fees and hotel (one night in ~2 local stars) were not included but marginal did it offer access to things not otherwise available to public? yes, absolutely, we went to incredible places off any beaten track great introduction to locals my own preferences very well served did you make back costs via stock licensing...? nope, absolutely not - but that was not the main purpose It was a great holiday, lots of fun and impressions that I would not like to miss out on I would definitely do it again - 100%

    Thanks Bryan, I use a mac and I used to be able to check using Tineye and Google Reverse search but for the last year or so these sites have been using a blocking mechanism and I can't save/download these images easily (a good thing) and can't use the search tools either easily. So I just do it the old fashioned way of inserting into Alamy's search bar and trawl through pages of searches looking for them but this takes time, which I don't always have! I can use Tineye and Goole Reverse search on my own Alamy images etc

    it disappeared with AIM, but you can always add to the description if you believe its important, see also this thread. http://discussion.alamy.com/topic/8340-stupid-question-about-aim/?tab=comments#comment-146335
  16. Digitally Altered Images

    I don't bother. If the image looks realistic and the customer is happy with it, whether it's been severely edited or not, I don't think it matters. It's only with live news it would matter as you're reporting the facts. It's one less thing to have to bother clicking on when doing my keywords, which is a good thing. Geoff.

  20. Sony has come out with a new 18-135 zoom for its APS-C mirrorless cameras (NEX, a6000, etc.). Sounds like it may be worth a look: https://www.cameralabs.com/sony-e-18-135mm-f3-5-5-6-review/

    Hi Lynne On my Android tablet I download the image and then have Tineye search for it. On my Win 10 PC, I have both Tineye and Google reverse image search set up to look for the image directly within Chrome. It's so long since I installed the software that I can't remember how I did it. Never had any problems using either app. other than for the fact that the free version of Tineye has a limit to the number of searches that it will do in any one period of 24 hours.

    I had to strike a compromise between price/weight/specifications. Hope I chose right. Thank you so much for your help Wim, I'm only getting round to giving you greenies. Gen

  27. Hi I've learned heaps since joining the forum so a big thank you to all who have contributed. My eyes and brain are hurting from all of the reading I've only ever sold my photos directly to clients but its getting harder these days. Until now, I've just used keywords for my own benefit to find specific photos directly in Lightroom. I just have my keywords organised into tables and cut/paste into LR So now that I’m with Alamy, I want to use the hierarchal system that many of you use. It just seems such a better system than the one I have been using So to the question: Is it possible to export/import my keywords from an excel file directly into Bridge and if so how? I've read many threads but just cant find the answer (maybe I've been asking the wrong question) Thanks in advance
  28. I guess I don't get out much, but I've never heard of such a tour. Rick
