  1. Past hour
  2. you have me curious, is there agencies that will restrict the content of images, beyond for copyrights and potential access issues? This is pretty bad from a freedom of the press standard.
  3. I too dislike culling -- i.e. choosing which images to keep and which to trash -- the most, probably because I'm indecisive by nature (story of my life). I actually enjoy captioning because I like doing research, and I often learn something new when devising captions. I have backgrounds in both teaching and freelance writing, so this might have something to do with this. Repetitive keywording/tagging does of course get tedious. I don't think there is any way of getting around this. You just have to grin and bear it. However, keywording can also be an educational experience. I always add captio
  4. Thank you Ed. I like signs too and I'll follow your advice!
  5. I never did. It only looked strange to me that my sales suddenly stopped. Thank you for sharing the performance of your portfolio on Alamy; it's always very useful to know.
  6. i know your travel, so knew you had chance of signs in español, français, Português, Gaeilge.... and wondered if any of those sold, as i have yet to have one, whereas the English ones yes.
  7. i understand, i struggle sometimes with how to make something in context when the work is newsworthy. here is one that i uploaded, get accepted and licensed as for Racist, i have images that contain RW extremists, Swearing, Inappropriate Conspiracy theory, people paying tribute to a war criminal..... if they are appropriate for the usage of the image. I would hate if Alamy restricted News.
  9. had the same issue, problem as i'll have 100 shots of same sets of birds so here is my process 1) Upload all images 2) Quick run through with Focus Mask ON (i use C1, assume other software have something similar) anything of interest gets 1 Star, any obvious fail 4 stars (don't ask i discovered i never used 4 so it became my trash, find something that works) 3) Delete all the obvious fail 4) Filter all the one stars. Second look, all the ones with potential get 2 stars. 5) Filter the 2 stars, All the ones for processing get 3 Stars.
  10. 🤦‍♂️ The earlier post was a shrug. Allan
  11. The add and edit buttons had been gone for some days apparently. Everything seems to be working again this afternoon. wim
  12. That's exactly what I do and my accountant is happy with it. I've never received a 'Remittance Advice' from Alamy, which I think is extremely shoddy, but there we are.
  13. Today
  14. I always had doubts about microstock, here in Brazil, microstock are the image banks, like Alamy. I don't know any other type.

  16. His photos show how his country is fantastic ... show ... in Brazil the reference to his intent: Australian people are extremely receptive, considered one of the most welcoming countries in the world.
  17. Welcome! I'm in Brazil and I found your fantastic photos, Congratulations!
  18. Hi Paula. On your portfolio page, click the album name and it will show images underneath which are ALL your Alamy pictures. Use a search term and it will only bring up pictures having that keyword, then click the add button on each one to add it to that album. There doesn't appear to be a way to add them in bulk, so one album of mine will need over 2,000 clicks to add each images.
  19. That is strange. Just Googled it myself. I assure you I have seen it used in the past in old magazines many years ago. Must have fallen out of favour.🤷‍♂️ Allan
