  1. I really enjoyed seeing ALL the nominees, and am particularly drawn to the ones that convey emotion, relationships. Ann
  2. September Photo Challenge - Critters

    Critters - FCP4Y9 wildlife at bird feeders, a snowy winter on Long Island, New York - Ann, from Long Island
  3. Me too, which is why I gave up bacon+... years ago. But more on topic - After voting, I was surprised how many votes Two Pigs in Love got, considering the strong fellow contenders. I'd say it effectively speaks to a rather widespread empathy.
  4. Have you found any Alamy Photographs during August

    Fun and Games: Clockwork Carnival - Measuring Time by Wendy Conklin - ebook & paperback, published June 2017 ISBN 9781480758698 3 Alamy Image credits listed in book: p. 18 Paul Wood/Alamy Stock Photo p. 20 Dennis MacDonald/Alamy Stock Photo p. 25 Ann E Parry/Alamy Stock Photo
  5. Thanks to all for your responses. Smiles - Ann
  6. Do you agree it would be a good idea to include image-specific info on Alamy's watermarks? It would make it easier for potential clients to find that exact image when it's seen in the wild. Also, importantly, it would help defeat watermarks-removal algorithms: GOOGLE created an algorithm to remove watermarks from stock images and its success depends largely on many, many watermarks being CONSISTENT. It's not enough to change the position of the watermarks. Differences in SHAPE (opacity helps, too) are needed also. Having watermarks automatically populated with specific info about the image - ex. Copyright holder and image # - would be win-won dealing with this watermark removal algorithm. Some agencies already include such image-specific info. EDIT: SUGGESTIONS forum didn't appear when I created this Topic, using my iPhone or iPad, so I jumped to Wrong conclusion that the forum was gone. Now that I'm using my computer, I see that forum, which is where I should have posted this.
  7. I eventually narrowed my 5 favorite street art images down to 2 outstanding ones, both coincidentally of "foxes guarding the hen house." Wish I could have voted for both - the images, not the politicians. - Ann
  8. Ethics

    Funkyworm, thanks for sharing link to the PDN Ethics article, which is relevant to much of my work. It drew from good range of photographers. Ann
  9. FTP login problem

    Thanks, Russell. (Briefly, I was capturing news photos at night in available light. Main subject made it clear the TV network would have to give permission before I could upload images to agency. Well, that took a couple of days - well past the 24 hour live news limit. I'll wait & see what happens....) - Ann UPDATE: As soon as I learned batch passed QC, I deleted FTP-glitch duplicates (as you mentioned above), so all's well that ends well.
  10. July Challenge - Street Art

    Topic: Street Art DD4AWM - PHETUS creating his graffiti street art on back of Huntington Arts Council building, Long Island, New York. USA DD4ATR - MasPaz creating his street art graffiti on back of Huntington Arts Council building, Long Island, NY, USA
  11. FTP login problem

    Am I correct that there's no way to delete submissions waiting for QC? Background: I tried FTP'ing the photos via photoshelter, and they went nowhere ( 0 bytes). For a LONG time, I kept getting "waiting for photoshelter" message. So I Canceled the uploads, in fact canceled each a few times. Then I tried with Cyberduck, which gave unclear/misleading indications of what it had/hadn't uploaded, so I canceled that. So I used Alamy's online Uploader, and it went fine. Later, I checked my submissions, and those files are all together in an upload I named "American Grit TV Contestant..." Yay! BUT above that (arrived more recently) I have 35 FTP'd files, all duplicates or triplicates of ones uploaded via Alamy's online uploaded. ------------- Spacecadet & Russell - Thank you very much for your info. Yes, it was an error on my end - password was out-of-date. - Ann
  12. FTP login problem

    When trying to log in to alamy FTP (through photoshelter), I repeatedly get "530 error." It's worked in past. If you experienced this problem, what did you do to resolve it? (If all else fails, I'll contact Member Services.) Thank you - Ann
  13. I've enjoyed seeing the wide variety of effective photos posted for transport. I had such trouble deciding between my two favorites, I asked my daughter for some input - and wouldn't you know it, her two favorites were the same as my two. Very very hard to pick just one to vote for. smiles - Ann
  14. Great Idea! However, I have just tried that and it only lists 3 of my 9 imges even though the last submissions have been accepted 2 days ago (and all are under the POTR Pseudonym). Not sure how long the delay is between upload and the servers actually registering new photographs. Equally, on my profile here it states I have only 3 images. Yes, Pixels on the Rocks, it takes a while for things to update. As of now, 8 of your photos show up in advance search of your contributer's name. If you create a link leading to results of a search on your Contributer's Name, use New or Relevant tab. (Photos that need releases, but don't have them, won't show up when using the Creative tab.) All the best - Ann
