  1. Converting slides

    I was thinking of one of those old Russian cameras with a Jupiter lens. Alan
  2. Converting slides

    As long as they meet the QC criteria, yes. You will need to use a good quality scanner, or a slide copier or similar setup on a god quality DSLR. Many of us have older photos on Alamy converted from film, and they still sell. Alan
  3. Those missed photo opportunities

    Not something I'm particularly bothered about. As far as I recall, I've only ever been challeneged once when taking photos (by an irate shopkeeper who demanded I stop photographing the front of his shop from a public street - my response was Alamy image E3RM9N). I've often photographed children in public places and I will defend my right to do so if challenged. Alan
  4. Images taken on National Trust land

    I spent a day at Canary Wharf last year and wandered all over taking photos with a prominent large DSLR, staying in some locations for a considerable time in order to get the right shot, and not once was I challenged. I don't know whether I was just lucky or whether my personal magnetism shielded me from scrutiny. Alan
  5. This may alter what you photograph

    That wouldn't in itself stop the photographer getting sued though. Alan
  6. This may alter what you photograph

    If you see the way some of the Maltese drive, you would assume there are no traffic regulations in the country. Mind you, it's like that in Halifax these days. Alan
  7. This may alter what you photograph

    So all photographs that show identifiable people, whether taken in a public place or not, render us liable to prosecution under the DPA unless we either obtain consent from every person in the picture or blur all the faces. This effectively kills most photography stone dead, does it not? Alan
  8. Tags and plurals

    Brain: "I think I'll go to Alamy and look for landscapes". Fingers: "landscapes". Easily done if you're not thinking clearly. Or not thinking at all. Alan
  9. I've edited my tags and where are they?

    They become visible when the database is updated, normally once a day. Your photos are on display now. Alan
  10. Despite not seeing my first sale this year until Jan 24th, I've now had more sales in the first 36 days of the year than the same period in all previous years put together (2009-2017). On the downside fees are considerably lower than any previous year. Is this maybe a sign of where we're heading - more sales but much lower prices? Alan
  11. Images Sold in February (Max. 1 per day)

    I'm seeing a trend at the moment: every sale I've had this year has been from my local area. I'm starting to think of all that petrol I've wasted over the years... Alan
  12. Hen ID Please - What the Cluck?!

    My guess would be young Rhode Island Reds. Alan
  13. Releases for my own paintings' photos

    It can't do any harm. I always upload a release if I put any photos of myself on Alamy. Alan
  14. Newby from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

    Lots of old people too Alan
  15. Images Sold in January (max one per day)

    Having a lean time at the moment. Had to wait until Jan 24th before my first sale this year:
