  1. Still can't get it to work. I have done this several times before and I cannot get it to work!
  2. I cannot see how to link an image which is not on Alamy. When I use the Image icon, I get the message "You are not allowed to use that image extension..." Has Alamy removed the ability to do this. Also their How to upload image instructions have disappeared or am I missing something! Cheers Sheila
  3. Sorry, can't help you there as I don't shoot Jpegs and my husband (who does shoot Jpegs) would not know dpi from his elbow!! I cannot see anything in-camera which would change this and the online manual is of little help. It's interesting that RAW files are sent to ACR as 240 dpi which of course can be changed to 300 dpi and then all other RAW files following will be subsequently changed to 300 dpi but that doesn't help you! Sheila
  4. Escaping the Melbourne winter, Ken? If you get a chance, pop up Mount Warning. Great views from the top on a clear day. I got a great snap of Mount Warning at sunset - so great that real estate agents in Tweed and Byron keep nicking it! Sheila
  5. Betty To change the ISO, hit the Fn button on the back of the camera until you get to ISO and then change it by rotating the wheel towards the back of the lens. Sheila
  6. Jools Have you elected to have an FAA watermark? All of mine are watermarked at bottom right which, of course, can be removed or cropped which would land the infringer in a heap of trouble should they be pursued in court. Getty was not at all transparent in placing contributors work on FAA (plus other print on demand sites) and nor did they justify why they undercut FAA/Getty contributors in pricing. Sheila I would take it up with Getty regarding the watermark. You can always place your own work which you have with Getty on FAA (which Getty does allow contributors to
  7. Also, Betty, a memory card does not come with the camera. Sheila
  8. Could it be that the photographer did not fill out the IPTC or EXIF before uploading to FAA? I don't think that FAA (unlike Facebook!) strips out any metadata of images. Sheila
  9. There is a manual but the online manual is far more detailed. The SD card my husband uses is a Sandisk Extreme III 4GB - not large but he only shoots Jpegs and its just a "point and shoot" he can take on his motorbike trips at the weekend. Sheila
  10. Actually, David, I sold the 24-105 and replaced it with the 24-70 f/2.8 L which is rarely off my 5DIII. Its a superb lens but a bit short for Ken's requirements. Sheila
  11. Hi Ken In that range, you cannot go past the Canon 70-200 f/4 L IS or if you want to spend more, the 70-200 f/2.8 L IS. I have had both versions of the 70-200 f/4L and non-L and there is little difference between the two. I had this lens for many years and only sold it a couple of years ago to a friend who was looking for this particular lens and I had already bought the Canon 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS (which I bought when I came second in a comp on Facebook sponsored by Digital Camera Warehouse..but that's another story). There is, of course, the Canon 24-105 which I never liked as it suffer
  12. Awhile back, I was in contact with Mark Corran of Briffa when I sought his opinion on a UK infringement and he was most helpful and gave advice on copyright infringement BUT ...it is really expensive to pursue an infringement in the UK as generally, UK solicitors have a high hourly rate (in comparison to Australia and the US) and they don't act on a contingency basis due to the possible awarding of costs issue in the UK. To pursue a matter of about 1,500 pounds would risk a whole lot more if damages were not awarded. So I gave up and the guy is still probably using my images to this day.
  13. I would not recommend uploading until the relevant submission has passed. If you upload more submissions while awaiting the outcome of the first, and you get a QC failure on that submission, then they will fail ALL of the subsequent submissions. Best wait for the outcome. Sheila

  15. You're welcome. For those who have Windows 7, even though it says Vista, it works with Windows 7 (which is my OS) Sheila
  16. John You can download the driver from Sony http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=DSCRX100&LOC=3&session_id=c9df33d34d94a02cfc6e7acb876ba372#/howtoTab As I use ACR to process my RAW files, I had to update my CS6 which, surprisingly, worked! Sheila Thanks Sheila I tried the link and it reports that the required files are already part of Win7. All I get with my RX100 RAW files in Windows Explorer is a logo but not a thumbnail of the actual image. John I did a search of my Chrome history and this is the link I actually successfully used http://support.d-i
  17. I checked out your FAA website, Sheila. Lovely images. I can see why you are doing so well on FAA. Just wondering, have you been able to trace any of your sales directly to Facebook or Twitter posts? I don't particularly like inundating "friends" and "followers" with advertising, but I do occasionally post announcements. These usually bring a flurry of visitors that soon peters out. Also, none of the images that I've "announced" have ever sold. My FAA sales literally seem to come out of the blue. Thanks John. I have just placed a Statcounter on FAA so hope to find out where they buyers come
  18. David I can sympathise. I just cleaned out my RedBubble portfolio having only made small amounts over a long period. It is a similar site to FAA but doesn't seem to have any customers. I often liken it to a farmers' market that no-one knows about and the stallholders end up selling to each other. FAA looks pretty good though and sounds promising from earlier comments. Ray I am about to dump RedBubble entirely as I am tired of seeing my work unwatermarked on infringing sites where the metadata indicates that it was lifted from RB as they refuse the watermark large thumbnails. Over the pa
  19. The most I place on the largest size available (depending on image size of the file upload) is $250.00 (which is what I receive) and the buyer pays FAA just over $400.00, depending on the medium, so folk will pay to see your art on their walls. And, David, you would be surprised what sells on FAA. For US$30 per annum you also get your own website and a widget to place on your blog/website linking to your work on FAA. When uploading images, you can use your Twitter and/or Facebook page to announce the upload. Also when you sell an image, you can also do the same. I must say it's about the
  20. Using the RX100 makes me actually miss my old Canon 20D purely because of the fill in flash. While I do have a 580 flash, its cumbersome and takes up far too much room for the small amount of time that I actually use it. One minus with the Sony flash - why did they place it on the top left which is where I actually hold the camera. Why did they not place it in the middle!? Sheila
