  2. pseudonym: one or many ???

    Not sure that it makes much odds re ranking etc, but it may be useful to choose a name that might be attractive (or not unattractive!) to buyers in a particular marketplace. I only have three, one of which is a dump for deleted images.

  6. Sadly not. Also checked under Tennents brewery Glasgow, and Tennent’s mural - not either of them. It shows a number of beer mat designs painted on a brick wall. Further digging - it's by Kay Roxby the word brewery is misspelt in the agency in which I found it, but still cannot locate in Alamy.
  7. Slow month? 2018

    No sales for me as yet, can't remember, in recent times, having such a long barren stretch. Zooms OK though, so maybe something on the horizon.

  9. LIkewise I don't know what's meant by these triangles. I cut the subject out and delete the background to pure white. I then adjust the levels/curves on the subject to get the result I want Some of my earlier efforts are dreadful, I should delete them. Like Betty I spend many a moon on this process, preferring to use the PS pen tool to get an accurate outline without jaggies, often blowing up to beyond actual pixels to get a good line. I also try to include the drop shadow. Even after taking this trouble, it's often necessary to edit the cutout a bit to ensure smooth and realistic transitions. I have a cheap light tent and I normally use bounced flash, or north facing window light, but typically the object just stands on sheets of white paper. Cutouts can sell reasonably well though, it's probably worth the effort.
  10. Just to bring this to a conclusion, I uploaded the image in a small batch of three and they passed QC. Keyworded this evening. Thanks for all the responses!
  11. Choosing keywords.

    In Lightroom you can use a Preset to inject a series of keywords into the IPTC content that will be copied over to Alamy AIM. It is useful to set up presets for commonly encountered places, situations, seasons etc. It doesn't absolve you from having to keyword, but it certainly removes some of the drudgery. The trick is to learn to enjoy keywording, the research element in particular can be fun, but the whole thing is an interesting exercise. Or just think in terms of $$$ when you need encouragement
