    As Mirco says, no need for a new account. Create a new pseudo and put your edited images there as you clean them up. They will have a middling rank. This will help you see the impact of your efforts too, compared to your unedited images in your current pseudo.

  6. Image identification

    Thanks Allan, I'll take a look at that site. Usually I do some research before asking for an ID, but I honestly didn't this time because in the past with dogs, I usually end up not being sure I have it right. That site looks fairly good though so it's worth a look. Geoff.

    Blimey, two mentions on the one page - that's a first for me..! Thank you, Bryan and Clare. Much appreciated.

    Hi, I had some special reason to do that. Nothing to blame on Alamy. I would not create new account. Also I think this kind of move is moralic not the best. To create similar effect you can simply move your photos to a different pseudo. Mirco

  10. Start a new account

    Seems like a lot of re-work, even if you have already keyworded. Lots of talk here about creating pseudos which I've never implemented but may be worth looking into.
  11. Has stock lost its Mojo?

    That pretty well sums me up too. I don’t expect to make enough from this to retire early. Photography is my hobby and I love it and thinking about stock, as well as the shots I take for myself, has opened up a lot of new ideas to explore and gives me plenty to daydream about when I’m at work. The tagging is fun (honestly) and when that first sale came in I didn’t stop smiling all day. 😊
  12. Image identification

    Not entirely sure but could be a mix with poodle. Try this website, sorry but I do not have time to search myself. Allan
  13. Start a new account

    Also starting to follow your great advices, it seems i'm approaching 3 months without a single sales. May be i started bad 2 years ago with too many similars and batch keywording which now lead to few zooms (and views also). I'm thinking it's too late to recover my existing images because my ranking should be very low (CTR is 0.25). Time to delete the existing account and start a new one? What is your suggestions? I've seen Mirco for i.e. started a new account ... how is it going this way? The good thing is that i keyworded using LR so i don't have to keyword from scratch this time.

    That's a beautiful image. I think that should pass QC without a problem.

    Yeah I know couldn't delete it!

    I dont think you can worry too much about CTR when you have figures like these! sales/views/zooms/ctr 8 120 0 0.00

  20. New Sony E 18-135 lens

    Looks interesting if the claims made by review and Sony sites are accurate. Will make a good, compact, lightweight carry about on my a6000. Over here it is selling for £569 generally where it is on sale. Sony price is £570. Think I'll wait till price comes down in shops then screw my local camera shop. Allan

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

  24. Helloooo, anyone home?

    Same today with a lot of single image uploads from one event badly captioned and flooding the pages.
  25. 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.

  27. 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.
