  1. There's quite a range of courses. I've been doing a mix of computing and maths/statistics modules and in the future, I'll be looking at arts/humanities subjects. But anyway... Coooeeeeh, Alamy...
  2. Yup they do. And they're part of UniDays so I get educational discounts at places like Apple. I've just bought a little printer with an educational discount from HP using my OU email address too.
  3. Bugger. Since my early retirement, I've been an Open University student.
  4. My Mac herd (2020 Mac Mini (Intel), a just-retired 2012 Mac Mini that I used solely for my music studio but couldn't be updated to Big Sur, and a late-2013 rMBP) all run beautifully since I rid myself of Adobe. Adobe just takes over your HDD and puts its files everywhere. It always has a service or twelve running in the background, contacting Adobe servers, chewing up CPU cycles and occupying large chucks of RAM. My photography is now run through Capture One Pro 20 (although I'm thinking of retiring that as they are a bit spendy for upgrades), NeoFinder (cheap as chips
  5. Nearly 40% of my sales are wildlife/nature shots. Mostly primates and birds but also pachyderms. There's only a couple of repeat sellers in there too.
  6. I was lucky enough to meet Keith on an Alamy course in Cirencester a few years back. A dry wit and a man really in charge of his craft, a craft he obviously loved. Taken far too soon. Gorffwyswch mewn heddwch, butty. You'll be missed.
  7. Thanks! It was picked up on here a few months back. Of course, I bought the book but haven't read it yet. The image is DHMD88, some scruffy peeling wallpaper from when I was renovating my house.
  8. FWIW, I use a normal neck strap but hang the camera on my (right) shoulder, not around the neck, with the camera "turned in", i.e. the lens pointing towards my lower back/bum rather than pointing away from my body. It minimises the camera swinging about (for me - might be my big bum, mind). Perhaps give that a go before shelling out for another solution?
  9. My first sale of the year and in another first for me, zoomed and sold on the same day Worldwide. Corporate client. Presentation or newsletter Excludes advertising. One time use only. Construction & Property Bargain $
  10. A minor thing but when you're keywording, this is a fungus (actually the fruiting body of a fungus). "Fungi" is plural.
  11. Are we allowed to have similar images as a mix of RF and RM now? Alamy used to stipulate that all similar images had to be either all RF or all RM (notwithstanding the presence of non-released "people").
  12. I asked because there's a well documented problem with the appearance of foliage when raw files from (some) Fuji sensors are demosaiced. I've not heard of a similar problem with Nikon cameras (and I never had a problem when I shot with Nikons).
  13. Out of interest, do you use a Fuji camera?
  14. I tend to make the really good look really ordinary so I'm half way there.
  15. BME for my diddy port. 5 for $135 gross. Lowest $10 and highest $54. After a bunch of personal stuff getting in the way over the last year, I need to start uploading again.
  16. Best Alamy month ever for me, and there's still a few weeks left. *shrugs*
