  4. Be sure that the image you show us is a 100% resolution, same size as you submitted to Alamy. We can't give feedback on a downsized image. Jill
  5. I don't worry about it much. Any live news I have done I always keyword for stock. You have a pic of a horse that you have given colour as brown with white flecks(I think). The official colour is called a red roan if you want to add that tag. Jill
  6. None of the images on page one have ever been zoomed. I have sold an image of the grounds crew working on the pitcher's mound and the term "Toronto Blue Jays" is a keyword, but not in the caption and not a supertag. I don't know what the search term was for that sale. I have sold 3 CN Tower images, yet can't find any of mine in the first 5 pages of a search for "CN Tower" where there are 10,00 images. I don't worry about it anymore. Just tag, upload and hope for the best. I haven't uploaded much the last couple of years, but hope to add more this year. Jill
  7. I currently have 6 images on page one of a search for "Toronto Blue Jays". There are over 13,000 images. Yet in a search for "Toronto Street Car" where there are only 2500 images, I have 3 but on page two. You would think I would have an easier time getting on page one for the search of less images. You just don't know. Jill
  8. Image of a cedar tree outside my sister's garage in Grand Bend Ontario. May 2014. $16.89 to magazine in Hungary. I had 4 sales that year over $150 out of 13 sales. Rarely see that now. Text book sales have pretty much disappeared. Happen to be there at the moment babysitting the dog. Jill
  9. I have had my photo on the front page of a newspaper twice in my life. Once in 1968 (age 13) waiting at a rally for Prime Minister Trudeau. Another when my sisters and I slept outside Maple Leaf Gardens in downtown Toronto to get tickets to the Canada-Russia hockey game in 1972. Neither time did anyone ask my permission to take my photo. I saved the pics. Jill
  10. From what I know, Alamy is one of the few (if only) that lets you know when an image has been "purchased" before it is paid for. Other agencies only let you know when it is time to pay you, so you may have many images that have been "purchased" but then not paid for on other agencies; you just don't know it as unpaid purchases are not revealed. Jill
  11. Nothing for me either Paulette. Perhaps tomorrow. I'll meow with you. Jill
  12. NU use, so very meager $ amount. And I spent ages removing all the telephone and hydro wires. But who knows, may sell later for big money. Jill
  13. How awful. Condolences to his family. I also only knew Keith from this forum, but it feels like a close friend has passed. Jill
  14. I take it you mean that you tried to upload 3 but only one of them uploaded and for some reason the other two didn't. Then you uploaded again and only one uploaded. Then when you tried again it wouldn't let you upload 3 as you already had uploaded two. If that is the fact, then just upload the one that didn't make it. Or delete the two from the Image manager and start all over again. Did I get that right? Jill
  15. Is the MB size based on jpeg (which is what most personal use buyers are looking for) or on the uncompressed size? If based on uncompressed than size would certainly be consistent with MP size, but if based on jpeg, then depending on the content of the image, the pixel size would vary all over the place. People buying for personal use usually don't know anything about Raw or Tiff files. They deal in jpegs and want to know what size image they are getting. Giving a choice of 5 MB doesn't tell the buyer who may want it for a full page photo how big the image is. More confusion. Alamy seems to have problems in the size defining area. Look at all the issues with the 17MB uncompressed minimum. How many newbies have been so confused by that one? Jill
  16. Good month for my small port. 4 sales for $189 gross. CTR in great shape as well. Only a couple of zooms though. Jill
  17. Thanks for including my eagle Colin. Lots of great images this month. Jill
  18. I did try it Allan. No adjustment brush. That's a tool I'm addicted to as it use it all in my graphic design as well as images. jILL
  19. Thanks for all suggestions. Hoping to find an Affinity user, but not so far. I have considered buying Lightroom 6, as it's the ACR part of PS that I have a hard time living without. And of course after years of PS, I am so comfortable using it, everything is second nature when I'm working. I probably spend 2-3 hours a day in PS as I use the artistic side as well as the photo editing side. But I have a few monthly subscriptions necessary for my business, so I have been trying to cut down on the fees. I'll probably continue my subscription for now, and if Affinity has a Christmas promotion may buy Affinity Photo anyway. Right now it's only $70 CDN, so if they have a promo, I could get it for $50. Not a big risk. As mentioned it does work well with my other two Affinity programs. Jill
  20. I am getting tired of my monthly PS fee. With exchange it is costing over $15 CDN per month or $180 per year. Just getting too pricey. Anyone using Affinity Photo/Capture One? I use Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher but awhile ago I tried Affinity Photo and decided to stick with PS. But I'm reconsidering. I don't think I can do another free trial, so opinions gladly taken. When I checked it out before, it did not have a adjustment brush tool like ACR, so that kind of disqualified it for me. Does it have one know? Jill
  21. How's your CTR? Do you have a lot of similar images where the image may not be the same, but a lot of the keywords would be, causing a lot of extra views? Jill
  22. I accidentally uploaded an image of some friends with their Belgian horses competing in a horse pull. The image at 100% was out of focus. Instead of putting it in my personal file I put it in my Alamy file and accidentally uploaded it. I noticed right away, but it was too late. I emailed Alamy and let them know about the mistake but they told me I would just have to wait for QC results. It didn't fail so I immediately deleted the image. Sometimes I wonder if Alamy intentionally let it pass to see if I would delete the image or let it go through. They probably didn't, but I do wonder sometimes. Jill
  23. I ran into the same issue as Ed a few years ago (posted about it here as well I believe) of a woman being loaded into an air ambulance. Just couldn't bring myself to take the pic. Felt like I was invading her space. Certainly would fail me as a photojournalist, but that one I just couldn't bring myself to take. Jill
  24. My last two Two Lion sisters at the Toronto Zoo Bald Eagle Jill
  25. Lbs and ounces still used in the US. Here in Canada, horse racing is still in furlongs (1/8th mile) and Canadian Football is in yards not metres. A lot of cooking is still done is ounces, cups, teaspoons etc. Jill
