  1. The National Union of Journalists has now commented on this: https://www.nuj.org.uk/news/nuj-urges-alamy-to-rethink-commission-cut/
  2. Thanks for those comments, Graham. Yes, I think that sums up the situation. LR provides a good workflow, even if it isn't thebest RAW converter, and C1's keywording isn't there yet. From what I understand C1's keywording and library have come on leaps and bounds from 7, but 8 isn't quite there yet. Perhaps I need to keep a lookout for C1 version 9 when it comes out.
  3. Thanks for everyone's comments. Really useful. As I thought ... If I make the investment (time-wise as well as financially) I'll see the benefits. I think half my problem is I'm old fashioned ... I like to sit down and read a book to learn how to do something. And apparently there's not one due for Capture One until November. Until then, I'll keep watching the video tutorials ;-)
  4. I've been using Lightroom to process my raw files and have been happy with the results. However, I recently tried a 30-day trial of Phase One's Capture One Pro software. The software appears to produce great results, although I find the screen is packed full of icons and very busy, making navigation quite challenging, and I'm still trying to get my head round their cataloguing/session set up. But it just made me wonder what software other contributors use. There are many references to Lightroom and Adobe on the forums but little seems to be said of Phase One.
  5. Had that surreal moment when flicking through a magazine and suddenly came face to face with one of my images! Anyway, here are the other Alamy images I came across in the Spring 2015 issue of Country Walking: P7/8 - Graham Uney - ANBWG4 P10 - Neil Dangerfield - BEWNCX P11 - Patrick Eden - ACYCMR P12 - Martyn WIlliams - EF7H3P P16/17 - Robert harding Picture Library - AFJGFC (?) P41 - John Morrison - E7XERN P43 - Alan Novelli - AKGGHI P44/45 - Snap2000 Images - A3RMCX P47 - Graham Moore - DRIHRJ P50 - Stewart Smith - CW4JG8 P50 - Roger Coulon - BBKF7P P74/75 - Nature Picture Library - E4642K P80 - Steve Taylor ARPS - C3FHRE
  6. I wrote an article on this topic for a photography magazine, and Alamy were extremely helpful in giving their advice. In the UK, copyright lasts with the creator (and their estate) until 70 years after the death of the creator. The photographer can therefore bequeath their photographic images to anyone they like. Alamy did mention that it would be useful if the will had a specific clause clarifying who the images on the Alamy account are being bequeathed to. The beneficiary can then contact Alamy (preferably with a copy of the will confirming that they are the new rightful owner, and then Alamy will give the new beneficiary access to the account. Just to confuse matters, remember, when you bequeath your Alamy account, you're bequeathing the income generated, not the actual images. The images stored on your computer hard drive can be bequeathed to someone else to exploit financially, as long as they don't do anything that conflicts with any restrictions you imposed on any images on your Alamy account. So, in theory, you have two things to bequeath - the income generated by your Alamy account after your death, and the actual images themselves.
  7. Hi Gary, I've noticed a slowness since upgrading my Macs to Mavericks. Interestingly, too, I'm having a lot of problems with the upload process when files are rejected because they cannot be located ... but this only happens if I switch to another programme. (I used to leave Safari open and my files uploading and switch to another programme and continue working whilst the files were uploading in the background. Since installing Mavericks I can't do this (I wonder if it's anything to do with AppNap, which gets the processor to cut power to 'hidden' windows. Have searched the Internet but haven't found any solutions yet.
