  2. Hi Bryan Tineye seems to be up and running now. Nigel
  3. I'm a newcomer to stock libraries and have recently joined Alamy & Shutterstock. As it states in the rules, any shots I have submitted to Alamy with contain recognisable property with no release have been set to editorial use only. An example being this shot: https://tinyurl.com/ukxakq4. This shot was initially rejected by Shutterstock, because I had set the usage to Commercial and not editorial. Indeed, Shutterstock appear to be paranoid about this rule. When I look at other similar shots on Alamy, I've noticed that the majority of them have been set to commercial use, despite the author of the photo stating there is no property release. So hypothetically, if a photographer was to sell a photo that contained recognisable property for commercial purposes without a release and the property holder complains, who takes the rap? Is it the photographer or Alamy?

  7. Every holiday we have taken in the last 20+ years has been partially paid for as a work trip. Either shooting stock or images for our print business. As the ‘non shooting’ half of the partnership I have spent many hours guarding the equipment and people watching leaving Ian free to concentrate on taking images. It works for us!
  8. Going slightly off topic. Predictive text has a lot to answer for here. Alamy has over 26k images for 'filed' most of which look like they should be 'field'. Check your own! "Wheat filed with tractor trails"
  9. There's another thread where this was discussed: https://discussion.alamy.com/topic/8336-keywording-and-misspellings/ That thread was prompted by a tweet from Alamy: "Don’t add what you think is a spelling mistake someone might make e.g. desert & dessert, our search engine will punish this." Not suggesting that anyone should change their way of doing things but clearly Alamy don't agree with adding misspellings. On Google the results from alternative spellings will be suggested but not on Alamy so it's hard to understand why they wouldn't endorse it, or how they punish it.

  11. Today
  12. I understand you, Adriana. Consider that, when I do keywording, I sometimes spell Italian names uncorrectly, on purpose. For example I write, along with "Giuseppe Verdi", also "Guiseppe Verdi" because I am aware, from my esperience, that many English-speaking people write and search it that way. It hurts me a bit to do that, but, in business, many times taking into account your potential customers' ignorance rewards you.

  15. Low $$ , presentation or newsletter Third sale this month now, which is good for me.
  16. SOME HELPFUL SITES AND I COULD USE SOME HELP WITH A QUESTION, PLEASE: I didn't want to start a new thread on DACS so here's some helpful stuff first - when google and amazon let your down - try these sites - you will need some info but these at least have all the ISSN and/or ISBN numbers: This site (which I believe I found via a link on the DACS site) has magazine ISSN numbers: https://portal.issn.org/ This is the CLA site which lets you check if copying of work is permitted using the title, author, ISBN or ISSN -- and of of course you can also use it to find an ISBN number if you know the title of the book or the magazine your photo has appeared in: https://www.cla.co.uk/check-permissions/search-publications?query= (I wrote to DACS this morning and got a reply that they'll get back to me in three working days - I left it too late) Now, here is my question -- this year I found a lot more of my images that have been published in educational books. Some of them were published in the US but according to the CLA site they are available to students and educators to copy in the UK And they are also available for sale on amazon.co.uk So, can I claim for them in DACS? Or am I out of luck? Any ideas? I may just try to call DACs in the morning and see if I can get through. Wish I'd gone online to do this sooner. Up until now, all my listed books were published in the UK, so I think that the day I spent tracking down all those photos was a waste. A lot of them say worldwide on Alamy so I hoped for the best ...thoughts?

  18. Ok you may have spilled some of your drink on the way down....but looks like you have landed on your feet with four sales to cushion the fall....Cheers 😀
  19. Out of pure curiosity -- in 14 yrs how many times did this image sell? If I had to guess, I'd say 8-10 Alamy only
  20. ok so she was mourning the death of a friend who was abused on social media to the point of taking her own life, and her was of handling it is to make sure the photographer is abused on social media? i am not excusing him, and i wouldn't take picture of celebrities at a non event, but she could have done the same without posting the video.
  21. Thank you, Estrella was just wonderful (and as we wrote in other thread, i did struggle with terms to use beyond Muxe, but Vogue used Trans in their article so i went with it). That event was just so special, and in fact validated my decision to focus on editorial part of stock within my meandering. Before i would have taken to image, and that's it. Now i have probably spent a couple hours after reading of the whole Muxe, Third Gender, acceptance within the community, as well as article on Estrella, who does know how to play the camera. Much easier than reading on all the source of the protests i saw... made my north today to Tlaxcala, because i wanted to see a more traditional Carnaval. Now reading on all the HueHue dances of the area.... Fascinating .
  22. but KWs are about getting your image found. I sometimes put some that i don't believe are correct, because people use them. For example if i had images of Guatemala i would put Central American even though it's in North America geographically speaking. An example in Mexico, the Capital of Oaxaca is called Oaxaca de Juarez, at some point i had a search where my best images were not included, because someone used "Oaxaca City" (i guess to exclude images from the rest of the State) as their search. (i would have some issue if i had images of Québec, as i would forget anglophone call it Quebec City). Yes we need to avoid wrong and misleading terms, but sometimes it gets gray/grey. That said i would bury it in the KW, not in the description.
  23. Prefer solitary, but often find myself out and about with my wife, who's view of photography was "a good walk spoilt" but now, understanding that money can be made, tends to look out for possible shots. When visiting a new town or city we normally go our separate ways agreeing to meet up for a coffee. I can enjoy time spent just waiting for the light to change, or for the pattern of people to take a better form, but this is not acceptable behaviour in company. Some years ago I visited a local camera club, but quickly decided that it wasn't for me, I'm sure that I could have formed new friendships had I stayed around, and probably learned a thing or two, but I wasn't comfortable in that environment. It's not that I am antisocial, I've some good mates around at the allotments, where sharing ideas and plants and communal effort is the norm, but it doesn't work for me when carrying a camera.
