  1. Thanks David. I was sure there must be a way. I have a lot of my own skies loaded as well. I have to think of something so I don't waste time clicking my way down the list. Jill
  2. I find it annoying to have to click on the skies in Luminar 4 to see what I am getting. I can't seem to find a way for the skies to be displayed as thumbnails as they are in Photoshop. I figure there has to be a way, I just haven't found it. Any help would be appreciated. Jill
  3. Betty, Ian posted in on page 2 of the forum. I have tried to quote him here, but since the two posts I'm trying to quote are on two different pages, it puts them in two different responses, so I will just paste it. New Alamy Infringements Team We know how important it is to protect the use of your images against unauthorised use. Here at Alamy, we now have a dedicated Infringements Team in place who will shortly start working with multiple Partners to maximise our potential and secure payments
  4. You should contact Alamy at contributors@alamy.com and ask them. There are not a lot of illustrators that upload that are on the forum, but there are some. Jill
  5. That is the problem of not knowing who the purchaser was. Any of those images you might have to tell Alamy not to chase as you don't know if it is an official license or not. You would have to check back on the license details when it was originally bought. Not selling the images. Using them on the site as headers, banners etc. Jill
  6. You can choose to have Alamy contact you first regarding the infringement before they proceed. I have to do that as I use my own images on my website. Don't want to be called for infringing on myself! Jill
  7. The fact is, if Alamy is going to accept photographers with just a low example of work, then they know they are going to get a lot of inexperienced people that have nice gear. If they are going to accept green photographers, then they should do their best to make sure their work is up to snuff as the entire Alamy port (good and bad) reflects on Alamy and all its' contributors. There are so many other blogs out there, and videos on YouTube telling people all the money they can make with their images. And many are silly enough to believe it. So as much as we would like to see peopl
  8. A real pretty bird Betty. I don't think we have them here in Ontario. Jill
  9. One has to remember that customers put in qualifiers sometimes on an image search that we don't see. They may have just wanted landscape images, or just porrtait images, a certain time period, with or without people, and a bunch of others. Those can be the reasons particular images, although seem to fit the search terms better than the ones shown, don't show up in the customer's search. Jill
  10. That may be true Colin, but as you can see by the number of people asking for advice with those problems, plus other issues such as tons of similars dark images due to monitors not being calibrated. These are all things that should be known before you start uploading, but everyone is in a hurry, not realizing how all this lack of knowledge will end up going against them in the end, even when they finally learn all the things they should. With so many images on Alamy, if your rank falls low, it will take years to crawl up through the herd. I know with me not uploading much for a c
  11. Always great having a fellow Canuck on the forum. Jill
  12. With so many new photographers (and many with little photography experience) there should be a whole collection of blogs for the new contributor. Judging by the number of people asking for help with their ports, the usual problems are there. Bad captions, useless keywords, no proper editing, etc. Although you did have that one on captions and keywords, many see that poor discoverability phrase on their images and think they must add more or their images won't be discovered. A good blog on the discoverability would be helpful to some. (Personally, I think it should be eliminated all togeth
  13. Like these two of Goldfinches. The one with the sky is looking darker than it did when I uploaded it. Does it look dark to you guys, or is my monitor off? I may brighten it a bit and reupload it.
  14. I haven't keyword checked yet Matt, but you have way too many similars. There are 4 of the wild tulip that look almost exactly the same, and 4 of the covid sign on the road. You only need one. Go through and mark for deletion any repetitive images. It will only hurt your rank over time. Jill
  15. I would think this wouldn't affect your rating at all Ed. I'm sure you can upload right away. Jill
  16. Thanks Sally. I figured it was a sparrow, but went to a number of pages and couldn't match him up. Missed that page that you went to. Much appreciated. Jill
  17. I thought this little guy would be easy to identify, but can't seem to find anything that matches his markings. Any of you birders help me with this one? Jill
  18. The only sale they notify you of is your first sale. After that it is up to you to check Image Manager. Jill
  19. Funny Betty, I had just been thinking (once Covid is over as it is a mess here in Ontario) of taking a photo trip. Pick a destination and stop and shoot along the way. Now retired, there are no time constraints unless I put them on myself. Would be a fun trip and probably find some new and interesting places I had never seen before. Both my sons have moved to Calgary, so maybe next spring or summer, take a photo trip. No hurry, just drive, relax and shoot. Jill
  20. I remembered to opt out of novel use yesterday. Stay in distribution. Will leave image options opted in for now. Jill
  21. I finally remembered to opt out of the Novel Use Scheme. Jill
  22. Awesome images. But not only great images, but superb post processing skills, which are so much a part of the job. Jill
  23. I would assume Twitter is fine, as Alamy posts tons there themselves, and many photographers use twitter as a promotional tool. Jill
