  1. After sending a request about an unauthorized usage of one of my Alamy pics, I received this answer from member services:


    "We’ve just noticed that this usage is outside our territories in which we can chase."


    The picture is appearing on the website of a "virtual shopping mall" based in India.


    Is it worth chasing or will I only be losing my time doing it?

    Not quite as bad as your lease, but I'll be left with $6 since it's a distributor sale. And the image size is 1page...

    Sorry about the small pics. If I copy the URL of the larger image I still get "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community".

  4. After receiving a message from alamy saying there were 3 licenses I could claim for, I sent an email to DACS.  After a week, I hadn't  received an answer, so I wrote again, and I still haven't heard from DACS. I included a statement of my sales covering the period from 2010, when I started with Alamy, to the end of 2013.


    We have only a few more days to make our claim... 

  5. I'm working on an image taken yesterday. It's a picture of  a circus big top with yellow and blue stripes. Raw file, 16 bits. Depending of the angle of the stripes (spiral pattern), the junction between blue and yellow is pixellized in a staircase pattern at some places, on all of the four frames I took.  Those artefacts appear in no other image, in fact I've taken many thousands of pictures with my D700 and 24-70 zoom, and it is the first time I see this. I was using a polarizing filter. The pixels are visible in the raw file without sharpening.



    Anybody knows why this happens and how to get rid of  the artefacts if possible?
