    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.

    Thanks Wim, useful to know. I'm interested to know of these other wildcards.....
  4. Zooms working?

    As Betty said in another thread, the zooms thing is a bit like the tide, ebbing and flowing. Mine almost disappeared in December but back to high water in February. All this talk of the sea makes me want to go for a stroll along the coast, the sun is shining, why ever not! I've spent a lot of time on keywording recently, but the natural variance in the data makes drawing any valid conclusion impossible.

    I like the tide analogy, very appropriate for this game! Hope you get sorted ASAP, isn't moving house rated as one of the most traumatic things that most folk encounter. One thing though, we bought a canopy to sit out in the garden with some protection from the elements. Not sure how useful it has been for that, but it's the bees knees for drying washing, you hang stuff out and forget about it, secure in the knowledge that, if the rains come, it won't get wet.
  8. ALAMY stats usage..How do you use them

    What's this mysterious %...% searches John, I know of a % search, but am I missing something here? To get back to the original question I scour my own views every working day and generally identify one or more keywords or phrases that could be used more generally - it helps when you have a more substantial port as there are many possibilities. In addition, for new subjects, I use the % search in AOA, to see how people are finding what they want. I used to use AOA before going to a new %location to see what was hot at that place, but, after awhile, you get to know what will be required. Wouldn't discount this though, still worth an occasional look.

    Trade show/promotional display. My last $$$$ sale was for an office mural, never seen this kind of money for a calendar. Very different subjects though, impossible to predict what will sell well.

  15. Discoverability

    I'd certainly like some mechanism that indicates when the optional people/property fields have not been completed. I have just worked through a batch of submissions from the recent past and was disturbed to find that I had missed several shots where a people or property tick was needed but not provided. From memory this was not possible in the old system, but the new AIM allows you to avoid completing these fields. I don't know why these fields are optional, it takes little effort to complete them and there is a piece of mind associated with doing just that. I'm aware that many imported agency images do not comply, is this the reason for the optionality?
