  1. 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?

  2. 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?


  3. 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.

    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".

  5. Ed, I join the others hoping that things will improve for you soon.

    Spacecadet, your post reminded me of this:

  6. Thank you.

    Since I 'm kind of incompetent with computers, it looks to me like the solutions are too complicated, so  I'll keep on clicking and clicking, and clicking...


  7. I found some of my images on this website http://www.wallskid.com/, with the Alamy watermark still on. Images that have never been sold, I want to report the site to Alamy, but I can't find any contact detail, so Alamy won't pursue  it.

     

    Anyone has contact details or experience with wallskid.com?
