  3. Have you found any Alamy images December?

    All of the pix in this article in the Mail on line are live news / Greg Blatchford...... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5152209/Oxford-University-students-enjoy-Santa-themed-bar-crawl.html
  4. Have you found any Alamy images December?

    Many thanks for the spot David, appreciated !
  5. I would have thought that Alamy's reputation as a supplier of well key worded quality images amongst buyers would be more important than the odd sale.....
  6. I don't thing I can be accused of promoting another agency judging by the images in this article..... good for a laugh though ! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5105643/The-weirdest-stock-images-online.html
  7. Scanning colour negatives

    Yes, I have done this without any problems using a Nikon D700, 1:1 macro lens, light box and copy stand..... colour negs are a bit tricky but easier than slides.....
  8. You need to host the image on another site such as Dropbox and then link to that to get it to appear here..... If you apply to Alamy for archival upload privileges they will ask to see some of the images you wish to use so they can approve or disapprove of your application so you will need to upload some to an external site anyways.....
  9. I used to use an Olympus E1 which was 6mp and have sold many images on here from that and they still sell.....I didn't notice it slip from the approved list to the unapproved list and I got a QC fail when I uploaded after that date ! I replaced that with a Nikon D700 and all was fine from then on. If you have images from back then that are, as you say, of historical interest or are unique, it may well be worth your while applying to Alamy for approval to contribute using the archival route as images uploaded that way bypass QC.
  10. Do no forum contributors sell?

    I would imagine that a large amount of the Alamy collection is made up from other agency collections and the contributors to those agencies would have little reason to look at the Alamy forum.......
  11. Zooms aren't what they used to be?

    Zooms don't seem to be so important anymore and have declined since the mouseover function started. Most of my sales were not zoomed beforehand.... that being said, I had an image reported as zoomed and licensed at the same time today !
  12. Never thought of that one Phil !!!
  13. No doubt about it...... !!!
  14. It certainly gets more difficult as time goes on as there are so many people out there who are happy to give away their images for free and plenty of publishers who are ready to take advantage of them ! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-4947736/The-stunning-photos-new-Rough-Guides-book-Here.html
  15. HOW WAS YOUR SEPTEMBER?

    38 zooms, 15 licences, $780 gross.....
