  1. The parking can get tight. It's a lovely place to wander around and breath some sea air. All a bit upmarket. Half the buildings seem to have scaffolding on them. Yes, I went today - twice. Morning for west facing, home for lunch, then back in the afternoon for the east. Also had a nose around Thorpeness today which you should definitely have a look at on your way from Leiston down to Aldeburgh or vice versa. It's getting hard to find much of a view of the House in the Clouds now with the trees growing up,
  2. The Pixsy free service isn't up to much. The paid options might look expensive but you don't have to commit to a year. You can cancel after a month or so. At the moment I'm on the 80 bucks a month deal and they import all my images from Photoshelter without me having to do a thing. What I mean is they will continue with any cases in progress but not keep scanning all the images when you stop your subscription. I don't find their matching technology as good as Copytrack - lots of false positives to plough through - and I don't find it completely intuitive either. But s
  3. I expect that both the above messages have been auto-generated. I'm still getting 'Hits' but that is surely just an automated process.
  4. Doesn't look like I will be getting any answers to the messages I sent them last week. The dialogue box has been wiped clean as though nothing ever happened. And it seems they are 'on holiday'.
  5. If the queues are too long in Aldeburgh there's good fish and chips in Leiston. Then drive down to Sizewell beach to eat them. Aldeburgh and Leiston are like chalk and cheese.
  6. Yes, I have just been thinking about this. It is amazing how fast time goes by. Sometimes I'm realising that places that I thought I had covered and my pics are from 2009 or something ridiculous. Aldeburgh is an example for me as a place that I thought I had 'done'. As it turns out most of my pics are 2014-2015, many around 2009-2010. Only my ones of the church are more recent. Not going there today though. A sunny Sunday will be hell.
  7. Thank you Albert Snapper. Here is my blog about the photographer who took the Brazil pictures. As you will see I still have a lot to do! It does make me feel good that I am bringing her images to the world! Glad that you and hopefully others appreciate seeing them. https://blog.geographyphotos.com/2020/11/17/geography-photos-by-margaret-folland/
  8. Thanks Betty. I like them too. Glad that I was able to find them and bring them to life.
  9. And Alamy should be making sure that they support the 20% of contributors who are making them 80% of their revenue.
  10. It's all about horses for courses. Find a strategy that works for you rather than work to a strategy that somebody told you works for them.
  11. Okay 'worry' was the wrong word. But I don't think that there is much to be curious about either. The ratio will clearly depend on the content and the tightness of editing. Maybe getting a lower 'per 1000' ratio would be a better strategy if it meant more thousands on sale to get sales from.
  12. I don't see the value of this ratio or why it would be used to judge 'performance'. Within one's own personal parameters, and not in comparison with anybody else, I've always thought that the more images of potentially saleable quality that you have on sale the more sales that you are likely to get.
  13. Okay thanks, probably best stop the discussion there if it doesn't involve Alamy. A user has an image of mine that they tell me was licensed through Reporters. I don't see the image listed in my overall sales spreadsheet from all agencies. So it either hasn't been reported, wasn't actually purchased, or I have made a cock up! Not betting on which horse is favourite.😊
  14. There are photos by different photographers and from different places on my website. This gallery is from Portugal and is about the production of port wine around 1960 : https://www.geographyphotos.com/portfolio/G0000t4RbosakXAU
  15. Is there a stock photo agency called Reporters in Belgium? Is it an Alamy distributor?
  16. What bothers me is that they seem to have made some half-hearted attempts to get payments at very low prices and then gone and disappeared. ie) lack of communication, something going on behind the scenes, is costing me money. So not FREE is it?? Quite COSTLY actually. Those infringers have been alerted, had time to change their websites and now it seems Copytrack has given up, Great!
  17. I could do with some help on a few of the locations and any other specific knowledge. 24 pictures. Some great shots here in the gallery on my homepage: https://www.geographyphotos.com Thanks for looking ( if you do!) Ian
  18. Is Copytrack still functioning? Are any of you getting responses or signs of activity from staff?
  19. Thanks. I'll have a closer look. Have you been able to transfer any unresolved cases anywhere else?
  20. I've been picking up vibes that all is not well. I feel fed up that some strong commercial cases have been messed up by them asking far too little and just not following up. I get the impression that 'managers' are just looking for easy low hanging fruit to pick up a few euros. One is a major financial company with over 1000 staff. Copytrack wouldn't take it on at the calculator price and suggested 80 euros. I was naive, new to it all, went along with what the 'experts' suggested. I did say at the outset that I thought it was way too little ask. Now can't really take that anywher
  21. I'm still seeing this: COPYTRACK is 100% risk free No win, no fee – we retain a commission only in the case of success
  22. I was wondering if they have stopped functioning. Nothing seems to be happening on my 'Cases'. No reply to messages about wanting to increase the number of images. I like their search engine but not impressed otherwise.
