  1. CTR

    I thought that CTR was used by Alamy to determine the order of presentation of images, (i.e. on first page of a search term, as opposed to much later page where my images reside!). Or my view may be too simplistic. Paul
  2. Just seen details of a free alternative to Lightroom, which has just been released for Windows. It's called darktable 2.4.0 available from https// I am not a Lightroom user, but know lots of people use or aspire to it, so maybe this could be of interest. If it is any good, please comment, as I for one would be interested. Paul
  3. Don't know if this is related to the uploading problem, but MyAlamy has been "unavailable" for the last few hours. Hope it's not another software type issue.

  5. Image identification

    Can anyone identify this wild plant / flower. I suspect it is Stone Parsley. It was growing on the canal bank in West Yorkshire, growing with similar plants but with green stems and white flowers (Milk Parsley?). Any assistance gratefully accepted. Thanks, Paul
  6. Photography tax in Italy

    Also, fashion shoots? As "journalistic" use is ok, surely John's comment "editorial only" should get round the problem.
  7. Chromatic aberration

    Yes, I use "Lens Correction". This zooms in on image, but can be moved around to show worst CA. Most images I leave setting at 100%, but sometimes have to reduce this as it changes reddish fringe to green! Only happens infrequently. Haven't found a way of batch processing, so quite time consuming......but still better than rejection

  9. Chromatic aberration

    When I started out with Alamy, I had rejections due to CA. Finally upgraded to a Canon EF-S 15/85 lens. Now use this for 90% + of my image submissions, but correct each one for CA in DPP. Not had a reject since I started doing this.
  10. US Grand Prix - Sky Coverage Now!

    Just have to wonder how "commercial" these images are? Restricted market I would have thought.
  11. Post some of your Fall Autumn photos

    Just checked my RAW file, and it's almost identical, just levels and shadows tweeked. Afraid altering saturation sliders and camera profiles are too technical for me, and Elements 10 is my nearest to Lightroom. It was the perfect, sunny day, so maybe I got lucky.......for once.
  12. Alamy Measures

    Measures seems not to be updating at the moment. Latest update I have is 16th October. Hope it isn't just me! Alamy may be working on a problem; that's what has happened in the past.
