  1. Clearly a very good, saleable image....but couldn't that shot have been taken anyday (subject to conditions)? Why do newspapers not search for stock shots (rather than news)?....
  2. I have notuced a large influx of sunrise/sunset and non-descript beach shots masquerading as 'News'...surely news should be something specific and 'new' that has happened that day? After all, when I was at school, the sun rose every day !!! Perhaps I need to re-evaluate?
  3. Not in the same league, but just had a $68 marketing licence drop in...frustratingly my account is now $1below payout threshold. ....things looking up though
  4. Just looked at image. I can see sharp parts in there even though it is an image of a moving subject with included flare. Allan you must have better eyesight than me
  5. B2WBNW http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-close-up-of-a-pin-wheel-18997717.html ???? Alamy promoting this on Twitter......where it states it was taken in 2008????? What part of this is 'sharp'?
  6. Apparently it's a recent change in Alamy that has caused this. Jim issued an update but the software now returns a different error message ' unable to update catalog'. Am progressing this through Jim, hope to have a resolution soon.

  8. LightroomPlugin are aware and trying to fix
  9. Closing this down...think it's a licence problem with the plug in...thanks for your help
  10. Yes..the plugin fails to log in to my account details and just kicks me out of the export box. Have tried re-loading the plugin but to no avail.
  11. Hi...can anyone help, please? I normally use a Lightroom plugin to upload my images and have started getting an error message `Alamy server says `200'. Can anyone enlightne me as to what this means? Thanks
  12. Is this genuine? http://petapixel.com/2015/11/18/reuters-issues-a-worldwide-ban-on-raw-photos/ if yes, then is Alamy likely to be following suit, particularly in the news uploads? I see little difference, except a possible drop in quality...you can `process' in jpeg too.
  13. Wouldn't it be cheaper to employ interpreters and then both Alamy and the photographers get a bigger slice?
  14. No expert, but a Google image search throws up a few.....Golden Ragwort? Packera aurea.
  15. After my first payout last month (finally reached the threshold) I had a sale posted this morning for $86 ($25 to me) .....mine too was a distributor sale in France, book usage...image taken in Peru some years ago now.
  16. I've had my camera (Nikon) cleaned twice now...on both occasions the `bunnies' were caused by sand dust (must be a lesson in there somewhere!!!! ). Tried the self cleaning but found it very time consuming and frustrating.. Decided to use a professional service and used Calumet. My local is in Belfast, but they have an outlet in Manchester...charged around £40 if I remember correcty..but it is worth it
  17. My first sale of 2015...yippeee!!! $57...less 70% comission....but it should just push me over the $75 payment threshold...

    Manage Images

    The non flash is well overdue. So frustrating not being able to manage from different platforms
  19. Alamy is not a place to learn it is a place to sell images that buyers can be sure are up to a certain standard. If an image fails QC it would have let us all down if it had slipped through and then been purchased, by a subsequently unhappy customer. Would you be happy to supply a substandard image direct to a client. I am guessing you would not. I wholly agree...but I had done my pre upload checks and was happy with the result....but now I won't know what is wrong for another month. If I have missed something, then it would be good not to replicate the error? What would be wrong in releasing the 'failed' notice and still disabling uploads (if that is the best way forward)?
