  1. Barking, looking at your portfolio on Alamy I could say this to you. 1) Take a look at what you have. The very first page comes up with three pictures of a crab. The first two look nearly identical. This is also not the only example as there are others. 2) As a landscape/ travel photographer I would say watch the blown skies on some of your images. E19N9X is one example where to me it looks like there are blown highlights in the sky. From looking at it I would say there is a possibility they could be toned down using the grad tool in Lightroom. However, I would always emphasize getting
  2. Would be interesting to see Alamy's end of financial year balance sheet to see what accruals they have? Why can't we just extract (withdraw) the money when it's in our account? - as you can with online betting etc.....if Alamy allow sufficient time for potential refunds (say 60 days), then there shouldn't be any risk of them having to come back to the subscriber.
  3. If I had made any sales, then perhaps I could afford to have my shots reviewed :D :D (back in the sin bin again!!!!!) :angry: :angry:
  4. Are you able to zoom in on the name board? It's too blurred on this image. a further google search under 'mosaic toronto ferries' shows a link to pinterest which records it as the 'jack layton ferry terminal'. Does that help?
  5. I'll give the normal Alamy upload software a go and see if it fares any better That seems to have sorted it...many thanks

  7. It's a third party plugin...I can see the various options in LR's export dialog box but neither overwrite or rename had any effect...it's not a major problem as it was onky a small batch. Just an irritation.
  8. Not sure I understand fully...I have tried re-naming them but the software seems to recognise the original image and won't allow me to re-submit again, so not sure that copying them elsewhere will help, unless it's the source that the software recognises.
  9. I use the Alamy export plugin in Lightroom 4. I can't see any replace, overwrite etc...Have just had a look at the Alamy upload software too and there doesn't seem to be a box to check there either.
  10. I have just had a small batch of images failed because a random sample found a `smudge' (further inspection reveals nothing untoward in the camera) which I accept is not up to standard. I re-examined others in the batch and was happy that the problem wasn't re-occuring. However, my attempt to re-submit is thwarted as the Lightroom Exporter tells me that the file has already been submitted. I have re-named them and get the same answer. Am I doomed to lose this batch?
  11. Have Alamy changed their 'suitability' list? I have a Fujifilm finepix j30 12.2 mgp which I use from time to time and have successfully passed QC in the past. Today I received a failure notice on a small batch( the only reason). Have checked the suitability list and the j30 is on the unsuitable list. I'm sure it wasn't there before.

    Drop Down Menus

    Probably the best option...but still shouldn't have to do it Would you rather Alamy spent time and money on drop down menus or sales and marketing? personally, I think they shoul be able to do both without compromising either. They must have a dedicated it team (or outsourcing) which manages the web site?

    Drop Down Menus

    Does anyone else find it irritating to have to click through several menus every time they want to access particular pages on the web site? Under `My Alamy' could we please have a drop down (floating menu) that allows you to select the various links without having to re-select `my alamy' each and every time
  15. now that will be interesting
  16. talking to myself...but that's normal anyway....found the Puffin broswer( from the above link)...that seems to work .....thanks for the links again
  17. Managed to find the adobe flashplayer in the archive but my Android 4.2.2 still won't open flash. I'll keep looking
  18. Thanks, David...I'll give that a try
  19. What about Android tablets? Any suggestions for apps that will do the same job?
  20. Start here...http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/selfemployed/........the amount of tax and national insurance you pay depends largely on your income(s) but if you estimate around 25-28% of your gross income as being the taxable part, you shouldn't go far wrong......(unles you expect to eran big bucks!!! in which case it can be between 40-50%!! There are however lots of ways of reducing your `burden' . You have to register within 3 months of starting, but HMRC can be very helpful, sometimes they run courses or provide self help.
  21. 1 $ale $7.95......that will keep the bank manager away :-) :-) :-)
  22. I have sets uploaded on each day waiting since 25/11/13....very unusual
  23. Thanks losdemas and Charley...I already use Alamy size check which tells me if it will upload but doesn't tell me what to do when it doesn't, come up to scratch.....anyway I think I have solved the issue...just need to check my LR settings more carefully. Thanks everyone :-) :-)
