  1. High Sierra?

    Having installed macOS High Sierra version 10.13. 2 on my imac, Nikon ViewNX-i version 1.2.10 continuously crashes. I have been in touch with Both Apple and Nikon to solve the problem but the fault still remains, works fine running Lightroom 6.8. Using the same OS on a new Macbook Pro with no problem at all. May be the next up-dated version of ViewNX-i will stop it crashing.
  2. Just uploaded 23 images. No problems this morning. I had major problems uploading yesterday. Would have been very annoyed if these where for Live News Feed. Alan
  3. Q.C. quickest ever

    Yes, I had several images in the queue from yesterday but added one additional at 5pm today and all passed at about 7pm. Still good. Alan
  4. Just had the quickest ever Q.C. 2hrs. Brillant, fantastic, excellent. Well done Alamy Q.C. team. Alan
  5. What a momentous night. Just arrived back at 5.00 this morning having covered the Vote count in Mansfield, Notts. Thanks Alamy Live News in providing the support through the night. Well done the Alamy team. Alan
  6. How was your May 2017?

    A good month. $493.40 in total with one sale of $345.82. Alan
  7. Question About My First Sale ?

    Don't worry Siar if it shows on Alamy sales you will get paid. Very clean and sharpe images and very surprised you have your first sale with only three images and very little keyboarding. That may be the secret, the fewer the better. Alan
  8. What colourspace should use in camera

    Nick, have a read on the article by Ken Rockwell "" about the difference between sRGB and Adobe RGB. Some good reading and in-depth research given. Alan
  9. What about doing a search for a similar image then from the image date you should be able to pin down the submission date to find the image. I know its a bit long winded and not a quick as the old method but it works.
  10. Just had this back from Alamy regarding my query in copying key words using the new AIM system. You can make tags common from old submissions. If you CTRL click and double click the left hand mouse button, the 2 (or more) submissions in the left pane that have the images where you want to make tags common, all images from those submissions will come up in your main image window, and then you can select the images and click the tags to make them common. many thanks Alamy support.
  11. Coping tags from other images

    Just received the new M.I. Looks o.k. but is it possible to copy tags and super tags from previous images already on sale to newly up loaded images with similar contents?
  12. How was 2016 for you?

    Quite pleased with 2016. A 67% increase in sales compared with 2015 and a corresponding increase of 22.5% in revenue which considering the competitive nature of this business its not all that bad. Some quite good sales, for example $214 from the National Trust, book front cover " Hardwick Hall - A Great Old Castle of Romance" which included the book launch a meal. An excellent start to 2017, 3 sales this week alone.
  13. Secondhand imac?

    Hello Nick, May be more than what you need but I run quite happy with a 27in iMac late 2013 at 3.5Ghz with a i7 processor, 16 GB memory, Nvidia Geforce GTX775 and 1.12T.B. fusion drive. Lightroom 6 and nikon VeiwNX-i. Copes very well with the files from the nikon D5. Hope you find this useful. Alan
  14. How was your May 2016?

    Average month with 3 sales, one at $50 and a front book cover for $214. Alan
