  1. Having just checked, I have 5 stars though I've no idea how I've achieved such an accolade. I'm more of a sporadic uploader and don't have a massive portfolio. Guessing it doesn't have any impact on one's rank ? Still, I think I might sew a row of pips onto my camera strap
  2. I use this to convert my fuij RAW files to DNG. Being a bit of a Luddite, I've never investigated the settings available to me. Does anyone who uses Iridient make any alterations to the default settings under 'RAW Options' or 'DNG Options' ? If so, what ? My images are mainly landscape / travel /nature Thanks
  3. Thanks guys. In short then, it doesn't really amount to much ! May have to try and apply for News access as suggested.
  4. Hello all, after the changes to Live News I received an email which said "As you are someone who has uploaded news imagery that has later sold as secondary stock, we’ve given you access to the archive / reportage route which means you can upload similar work for secondary sales, but it won’t be pinged to the news desks." Being a bit thick, I'm not entirely sure what that means in practice. Could someone with the patience to do so explain it to me please. I've had 'archive' access for some time - is this different ? I live in Buxton which is famous for 2 things - snow and the Buxton Festival - which are the things I have mainly sent to Live News in the past. When it next snows (probably next week) will submitting via 'reportage' give me any advantage over the standard submission ? Thanks
  5. Ah, I see what you mean. That's answered that one then !
  6. I was away when the 'my portfolio' feature was introduced and then we had the furor over the contract change. So now that the dust has settled a little, is the Portfolio feature worth spending time on ? Are there any tangible benefits or is it pure frippery ? Geoff
  7. I've noticed that some people include in their captions / keywords information such as "space left for copy" to describe the layout/composition of the image. Any thougts about the merits of this ? Geoff
  8. Apologies if this has been mentioned but I've been away for a while and come back to this whole contract sh*tstorm... Alamy can the 'exclusive' button be included in the default preferences options please ? Thanks
  9. So in Alamy's tutorial we have 8 pictures of a shipwreck, and yet 'shipwreck' isn't a supertag ?
  10. I wonder if any of you have any experience with solar chargers that you can attach to a backpack ? Looking to recharge camera batteries efficiently without huge weight or price tag. Thanks Geoff
  11. Just about to say the same; with white or black pen depending on mount colour
  12. Thanks , I'll look into that Wim. As a 'better than nothing' measure I've written my email address on a piece of masking tape stuck onto the body under the articulating screen on the camera. If some honest person ever found this one it would hopefully ease it's return. Geoff
  13. see this discussion.....https://discussion.alamy.com/topic/9783-upload-not-working/ Geoff
  14. I haven't managed to get a batch to upload in one go for some time. Yesterday managed about 75% of the first attempt, then about 30% of the second try before it seizes up. Not large batches either, generally 10-30 images.
  15. Having just lost a Fuji X-T2 with 16-55 2.8 lens (don't ask, too painful. It may have been stolen as it's a total mystery otherwise), I wondered if anybody marked their camera with their personal details ? Wondered about marking the replacement with my email address somehow that is fairly permanent but doesn't mark the camera. By the way, a big recommendation for Allianz insurance - my replacement was in my hands, with a minimum of fuss, less than 24 hours after notifying them of the loss. Geoff
