    Forgive my newbie ignorance, but whats a DM?
  2. Salmon Calendars

    I can only suggest you take it up with Alamy - have they been paid I wonder?

    As far as closure is concerned, thats confirmed: If Alamy have no sales recorded, it begs the question as to where they got the images from. If they have used your images without your agreement then I would say you have case against them. As to whether you feel it worth persuing thats a whole different matter. The phrase "good money after bad" comes to mind.

  8. Images in forum posts?

    Yup - and we both replied at the same time - thanks for the feedback
  9. Images in forum posts?

    Thanks Jill - yes I tried that first time round (insert image via URL) but it only displays the actual text of that URL Cheers Paulette - that works fine. You can have a beer on me, but you have to come over to my local to get it This is what I wanted to achieve in my earlier search results post. My guess is that its a browser and/or operating system thing. I'm using Firefox and Win 7 x64 Pro. For that combo, get to relevant image on the web, right-click on it and select "Copy Image Location" (NOT "copy image"). On forum topic editing window do Ctrl+V or right-click and paste. From further experimenting it seems that any image to be displayed must already be on the web somewhere (?)
  10. Images in forum posts?

    Whats the score on this please anybody? I've seen posts with linked images, and others where a picture has been included as part of the post. I don't seem to be able to do either. If I click on "Insert other media" I get options of attachment or a URL, but selecting attachment gives me a blank window with "you do not have any existing attachments" and no instructions on what they are or how create one. I have used a URL by selecting the link icon on the toolbar once before but the post only displays the link text, not the image so linked (it is to an existing Alamy image of mine).

    To the best of my knowlege, he just made the one pass and flew straight under. He was an extraordinarily talented pilot - the exception to the old saying about "old pilots and bold pilots" I reckon. There's other footage of him in action on youtube - have a look at the one where he just about took the head off a TV reporter!

    Hi Ben Suggestion for your Newlands Corner picture tags - add the full name of that AONB as a phrase: Surrey Hills AONB and make it a supertag if you havn't already used up all 10

    Having not previously known about webworms, I was jolly pleased to discover they were not internet based malicious software
  14. Hello from Teesdale, UK

    Thanks for the compliment Betty. I had never heard of webworms until you mentioned them! I've done some homework and I'm pretty sure the webs in my pictures are created by spiders. There were no signs of any caterpillars when I took them. There are trees in close proximity to those picture locations (garden border, low-growing plants) and none of them had the type of webs I found in searches for images of webworms. I did find an article about this autumn phenomenon though, and the first two pictures in it show the same sort of webs.
