Just selected 5 images by searching for a phrase. When you zoom in on them, my reference number comes up, which is very useful. However, there are only 3 different reference numbers ie 4 of the images have the same 2 numbers!

 

Anybody else found this?

 

I know Alamy said it was difficult to link our reference numbers so maybe they are trying but haven't quite got it right yet.

Yes, that's pretty useless.

I notice that they correct after a few seconds when you advance through the batch, then they will be unique when you go back, but the first and last two the same.

You can get the correct number by searching for the offending images on their own by Alamy reference, but it's pretty un-useful. If I needed this info I'd probably cross-reference with my own archive.

To confirm, this has now been resolved following a round of minor bug fixes that went live yesterday.

Hi Wim,

 

The recent release was just for minor bug fixes, this one being the only one users would be likely to notice.

 

Did you see our update from a few weeks ago with some key updates? We will update that thread with other key updates as and when they are released.

 

Cheers

OK here's a minor one:

When I type a word on the tag input line followed by a space; then paste a word; AIM deletes that space.

Like:

I type The Beheading   and paste of Saint Paul, the resulting tag is:

The Beheadingof Saint Paul

 

This would be less of a problem if the input line would wait for a return or a click on the plus icon.

Was the different behavior for typing and pasting a design choice? Why?

Ditto Wim, it would be nice to paste without the space being deleted and also not have it entered until you hit return.
