  1. I am in Portugal and more often than not am unable to view any of their news stories that have videos.
  2. Ask Alamy to delete it, simple. BUT as per your contract/agreement, images will not be fully deleted for up to 6 months.
  3. you will have to ask contributor relations for a definitive answer, but Alamy do not just delete images from your account. The most likely cause will be that you asked them to delete some that you uploaded twice. But as I say, only Alamy can answer
  4. I have spent most of the week sanding back all the cupboards in my kitchen. They were heavily varnished and the yellow dust, despite my best efforts, has of course travelled everywhere. My fingers have been worn almost to the bone, getting into all the crevices of the cornice and door inlays. My knees hurt from getting down to sand back the kick boards. The doors were fixed with long ornate hinges that made it impossible to sand behind. So I duly spent a very long time trying to remove them, they were sunk into the wood. Not an easy task as some of the screws snapped and some of the hinges would just not shift. I will need to get the grinder out for some of them. Needless to say new hinges will be required. I am having problems removing the handles from the fixed drawer fronts below the sink So eventually, after sanding back everything to clean wood, carrying out all the filling that my hinge removal subsequently required, I prepared to paint with primer/undercoat. Now, being in Portugal when I purchased the paint I glanced at the back of the tin and 'thought' I translated it ok. Seems not, one little word I was not sure of so resorted to Google translate. It says, the paint adheres very well and in most cases there is no requirement to sand the surface!!!!! I have tested it on the 4ft high glass door front that I almost dropped getting off single handed and had yet to sand. It works. Oh well, hopefully a better finish will be achieved with all my hard work. Jenny
  5. Thanks Gareth. Unfortunately, (and annoyingly) the Sony remote function will not work in Portugal, so will take a look at that.
  6. when you open your images in your editing programme, (lightroom, photoshop etc) you need to CLICK on it (select it) and SCAN it (with your eyes) at 100% zoom. so actual pixels size. You need to check the whole image to ensure no faults. the list of reasons for rejection are in the submissions guidelines.
  7. Stockimo images are not accessible via Image Manager, only via your stockimo app
  8. yes have had one in Porto, asked for the sauce on the side though as hate soggy chips. mine came with an egg, it should also have beef and ham as well as the chorizo. I struggled to eat even half, as you say, a heart attack on a plate!
  9. one the subject of eggy bread, one of my favourites is : make a cheese sandwich, dip it in a beaten egg, (I like to cut the sandwich into quarters first) covering both sides then cook in a pan in a little butter until both sides are golden brown. yum I like mine with ketchup on it.
  10. https://www.alamy.com/myupload/help/AIM-InstructionManual.pdf#page=16 or this https://www.alamy.com/blog/tagging-images-on-alamy
  11. I borrowed a jigsaw puzzle from my local book exchange, only 1000 pieces. I am normally very good at jigsaws, and quick. This one was possibly the toughest I have done, or maybe my mind is not in the right place. Anyway, its an alamy image by Steve Bloom, I am guessing it is fairly old judging by the box, but just completed it.
  12. no it does not match, but when I searched on IM for images on sale it does match. I will take a look at the number of any failed or deleted later, OK, was doing the maths in my head and it seems to be missing 7 images, odd
  13. does it include images that maybe failed QC or that you might have deleted?
