  1. Past hour
  2. On the main page, the word Alamy, next to Login is now a dropdown menu.
  3. I trust that they will also consider making fair payments to photographers - my guess is some of those used in the article, judging from the source, won't be returning much to the photographers who have created such powerful images. How much did the author get paid compared with the photographers?
  4. Long time since I've bought any but Ilford still make it here in the UK, and Foma in the Czech Republic, there will be others I'm sure, whether they have as much silver in I don't know. https://parallaxphotographic.coop/product-category/darkroom-paper/black-and-white-darkroom-paper/?pa_paper-type=fibre-based-paper My favourite was Agfa Record Rapid - long gone.
  5. The problem with trying to print like Gene in 2019, Is anyone still making fiber based paper that is any good? I also heard the one of Smith's secrets was the whisky that he used to hide in his Dektol bottles...... PS: Have always been a huge fan of Smith and his work. Chuck

  7. My first B&W darkroom tutor taught me the beauty of black and white is in the blacks and the whites! He also said to always remember KISS...Keep It Simple Stupid😃 Phil
  8. Today
  9. Maybe they've just done a straight colour to B&W conversion in Photoshop or Lightroom, that never works imho, always needs more contrast and/or playing with sliders. Fabulous picture, somehere I've got a very detailed article he wrote about just how he produced his prints.
  10. When I come across digital B&W images on Alamy, I see almost all as being washed out and dull looking. W. Eugene Smith was famous for his B&W picture stories in Life Magazine, but he was also famous for his B&W printing. He tried to include both a pure white and an inky black in every print, if possible. Johnny Depp will play Smith in a film that's coming next year.
  11. The concern over how best to depict the climate emergency led us to seek advice from the research organisation Climate Visuals, who have found that “images that define climate change shape the way it is understood and acted upon”. https://climatevisuals.org/7-climate-visuals-principles https://climatevisuals.org/about towards the end: Paid partnerships: Alamy wim
  12. I'm not seeing anything new yet, through my aqua-tinted glasses. (Sorry, Ed).
  13. They've left off "Sales History" which is always the first thing I check. Paulette
  14. Yeah, sorry about that. Between my dyslexia, Grammarly, and various auto-spelling checks, problems arise. Adding 'with' makes it correct, I believe.
  15. It seems Alamy needed to clarify the situation with respect to the loan to Many Thing (now called Videoloft) The effect on net profit seems the same, it still turns a £1M profit into a £1.3M loss. Presumably this lowers next year's tax bill, but I still find the large increase in dividend payout to the Directors hard to understand given the underlying flat performance and the realisation that they may have made a rather poor investment of £2.3M.

  16. do you have a bookmark for "my dashboard" direct? the change are on Alamy.com

  18. I can see it. Great improvement, faster logging to wherever we want to go. Thumbs up!
  19. Mine looks the same but there again I'm probably looking in the wrong place😄 Carol
  20. Ed, I think you mean a slightly different word, but that conjures up a wonderful image. That's how I feel most Saturday nights.😉
  21. The font in the drop down menu under MyAlamy has changed and looks easier to read, to me. Has anything else changed?
  22. A charming last trip. I'm glad to see Keith continuing the tradition of the VW Camper being the choice of transport for so many photographers. The baywindow version seems to have been highjacked a bit by the surfing community but I can live with that. I've had two which have served me well for fifty years. I've just had the later one tidied up and it looks good for many years yet.
  23. I have not seen it yet. Maybe it is only for the old b*gg*rs.😀 OH! I am one of them too.😮 Allan
