  10. What to expect?

    a. 9174 b. at the moment 9 for last month and still counting. c. last year from $6 to $360 d. all RM e. mostly. Very impressed by your first 3 images especially the New York night snowy photo. With more of this quality of work and your range of keywording/tagging you will be o.k. Alan
  11. PoeyYT, six excellent image. I like the image of the monk, well compose and a good use of a flash to illuminate the main image and the eyes at the top of the temple wow. One thing missing is the number of keywords only four show up for the monk. If you click on the blue six and view the monk you shall see similar stock images with far more keywords. More keywords or tagging will lead to more sales. All the best. Alan

  15. Bulk discount

    Just had this sale, 'Serbia Flat rate per image. Bulk discount'. I have several of these sales just recently either from Serbia or Slovenia and at a very low price, between $3 and $6. I suppose you can't complain, a sale is a sale but what is a Bulk discount sale? Normally a lience is given to use an image in a news paper article, web site, magazine etc. but why would a large number of liences be sold like this. Are they setting up their own image library? Before emailing Alamy have you had any experence or answers on this subject.

  18. Sierra to High Sierra

    Hello Ed, I use a iMac 27 a 2015 model and using High Sierra version 10.13.2 and Lightroom 6.8 with no trouble at all the same on a 2017 macbook pro. The only troube I have is using Nikon view on the Imac which keeps crashing but run fine on the Macbook pro. Unsure about the Nik software. Hope this is some help. alan
  19. Dead Animal

    Spent a week in Scotland trying to photograph a live Pine Marten a few years ago with no joy only this one. Remains of European Pine Marten after a road kill . But on a serious note, many years ago I saw two lads trying to attract a mute swan at the side of a pond in a disused quarry but they where too far away to take an image of them. It was only shortly later as I approached the swan that I noticed that the swan was laying dead in a pool of blood with a gun shot to its head for an air pistol and the two lads long gone. In those days I was using a Canon G6 and the images would not pass to-days Q.C. Reported the incident to the police but could not identify the culprits. If only. Alan

  21. Alamy Pic Needs tweets

    Good question Alex. If you get an answer let me know. It may depend on the customers request and their demands. If its urgent, requiring immediate action then Alamy live news may be the answer or if not then the normal route of uploading and going through Q.C. but tagged correctly in direct response to the tweet. Your best bet is to email Alamy they are very good in answering these sorts of questions. Alan
  22. 2017

    Quite happy with this year. A slight reduction in sales of 6.7% but a big increase in revenue of 26%. A combination of Alamy Live News, travel and general editorial. Alan
  23. Just had my images pass Q.C. in 19hrs. They must be on a Christmas bonus. Better get cracking on and get keyworded for santa. Well done Alamy Q.C. Alan
  24. What is Your Favorite or Most Used Focal Length?

    For travel it is always a 24mm-70mm f2.8 and 70mm-200 f2.8, (and for Live news) and at time a 16mm fisheye. Nature and wildlife 300mm f2.8 and I know the weight can be limiting the blistering image quality of the 600mm f4. Mounted either on a D3s or D5. Alan
  25. Weather

    Its always bright and sunny in Mansfield Woodus. Must be my sunny outlook or my frame of mind. Anyway one week to go, have a nice Christmas. Alan
