  1. Alamy, it would be very nice to be able to opt out of NU before April.


    I had a few of those $1.25 X 50% sale (in perpetuity...), and considering the amount of work involved in submitting an image, I would prefer to opt out as soon as possible.


    Thank you.

    I had a direct sale from Alamy today that makes microstock look generous. I really don't understand what they were thinking when they agreed that price.


    My lowest ever on Alamy.

    I had the same kind of sale today. Minuscule rate for multiple uses, in perpetuity...

  3. Reminds me of a Marx Brothers movie in which Groucho, addressing a group of workers, said something like "I don't want you to be wage slaves, I want you to be free!"


    Are we getting there?

  4. My goal is not to criticize the work of other photographers, but I can't help wondering how a picture with such obvious chromatic aberration can pass QC, let alone appear on today's opening page of Alamy.


    Or is it my eyes, or my screen?

  5. I want to submit a picture with a deep blue sky (polarized). When I look at this image in the Windows viewer, I see artefacts in the sky. I see no artefacts when I open the same JPEG image in Photoshop.


    I guess that it's safe to upload it to Alamy?

  6. I just had a distributor sale to Estonia for the lowest amount I ever got for a picture. It possibly doesn't pay for the electricity my computer is using while I'm typing this post.


    Since there is a chance that this picture will be copied by other users and used for free, I would prefer to make my images unavailable to Estonia (sorry, Estonians).


    Is it possible to do that?


    I would also like to say that I had a few nice sales recently and that I'm generally quite happy to have Alamy selling my pictures.

    I'm getting a deja vu over this thread.......


    Does it mean something to do with 'hipsters' - which I gather, or at least the male version, typically means having Edwardian style  facial hair of the W G Grace sort? 

    I also like "lumbersexual".


    Like in "young attractive lumbersexual man sipping on a latte while leaning on his fixie bike during an LGBT protest march".
