  1. Thats how I thought it worked in the past but these images are still not on sale, although I did see them in the live news feed. EDIT: These are live now, my fault for not understanding new interface. Dave
  2. Not logged in to My Alamy for a while but yesterday FTP some live news images and today went to put them into my library but completely confused by it all. I don't see how I make them for sale, I have filled everything in as far as I can tell but doesn't seem to have done anything. Also it says I have 1390 images with poor discoverability but no idea what they need to sort this. Any advice or hints welcome. Thanks, Dave
  3. Hi, Just a warning to any PhotoShelter uses. Today I got a email from a "Lead Developer" in their IT department warning me about suspicious downloads on my account and I should verify who has access. This email basically said ss a help to me they have flagged up any user accounts on my account in Red that has a weak password. There was a link in the email that looked very genuine. Upon clicking the link it will take you to the a login page (that looks perfect), then if you have entered the correct information you will actually be taken to the correct page on your PhotoShelter account, showing any users you have created. So you have no reason to be suspicious, apart from none of your accounts are in Red. On closer inspection of the email they have been very clever, they have registered PhotoShelters.com and every thing is from that domain. Very difficult to spot, if it had been sent to the correct email address I would have fell for it I reckon. The email contained the correct URL to our account but was sent to the wrong email address, it was sent to our public email address not the account email address I have spoke to PhotoShelter about it and forwarded them the email. If you have had something similar recently and clicked the link, please change your password ASAP. Dave
  4. I got a email off them saying congratulations one of my images scored a 4 but I can't find which image, am sure i have checked them all :-( Dave
  5. Stockimo sales

    You don't have to edit them on a iPhone screen. I have both a iPhone and iPad, I only edit images on the iPad. Wonder what would happen if I took a image into Aperture on my Mac, edited it and saved it back to the Camera Roll. It was still taken on the iPhone. Dave
  6. When the size was reduced to 24mb the Alamy Size Checker program was updated, so presume it will be again. Dave
  7. Keith Morris featured in Alamy Blog

    Nice guy Keith is, been following him on Twitter for years and even emailed him asking for advice and he gave it without even knowing me. Dave
  8. Mass Storage option does not work on the D700 which the Macs like (Nikon removed it from a few models). So you need software to import images from a D700 but the software may also need a update to recognise the D700. So make sure you have done all updates on the Mac and any software you are using. Or just carry on using a card reader. Dave
  9. Stockimo and ipad

    Is everyone using the default camera app ? I was looking for something that showed exposure (even if I couldn't change it). I took a pic into iPhoto and it showed the shutter as 1/20 but it looked sharp and was accepted. I have had 30 accepted from 120 submitted. But these are all images that were already on my wifes iPhone, she has 1300 images on there. Dave
  10. Stockimo and ipad

    The app will work on any iOS device (depending on iOS version) iPad,iPhone, iPod. That is something as developers you can't control, you can make a iPad only app but you can't make a iPhone only app. Dave
  11. Car ID

    A Pink Lincoln Limo :-) Dave
  12. Micro Four Thirds

    I use a G2 and have done for about 2 1/2 years. Not got loads of images on Alamy but not had one rejection since getting this camera. Dave
  13. QC Acceptance Emails

    I still get them and just looking, my last one was last week (which was my last upload). Dave
  14. Anyone using Pro Stock Master ?

    Cheers for that, found a old version on my HD. Dave
  15. Nikon D3 or D700?

    If it was me I would go for the D3 if your doing press stuff, if your keeping your D300. If your getting rid of your D300 then get the D3 and D700. If your doing paid assignments, you need a backup body. I presume you are getting these second hand ? Check shutter count on them etc... as they may have been hammered. Dave
