  1. me neither, can access all of alamy but not my own measures
  2. I am not particularly up on any UK celebs nowadays, but, it may not be a celeb. I know of a woman who had masks made of her future husband which all the friends wore during the hen weekend. I think its quite a common thing nowadays.
  3. Believe it or not Ed, my little corner of Portugal has been colder than the UK for most of the summer so far! We are all wondering when it will arrive, unlike the interior where it is its normal high 30's. I would rather be here with low 20's than that though. I have family coming over from the UK next week, they are in for a shock, haha. The last couple of years here the summer has been arriving later so I look forward to a lovely warm September and October. Fingers crossed!
  4. Ed, are you sure the aircon does not also do heat too? I have aircon in my house and it does my heating in the winter. There will be a little thermometer symbol (probably) on the display of the remote when you scroll through the modes. Just a thought. All the best Jenny
  5. and to make it even more confusing, when I click on the blue numbers below your name it comes up with 10468!
  6. Can't see its been mentioned yet, but wondering what everyone thinks of the new search function on the 'front' page. Bit like google image search. Do you think it will help sales?
  7. am fairly certain this was the image used last night on 'Have I got news for you' T5YDNC by Keith J Smith I only know as it was posted to a friends FB page, as they are the people in the image. so as I say, I think thats the one used
  8. as Maria says, KEYWORDS. most of your images appear to have been uploaded via Live news. Once they go out of live news and into 'stock' you need to be adding keywords.
  9. just to add to that, after you have edited maybe file to dropbox then upload via your phone from there?
  10. the submission guidelines give you all the requirements necessary to upload to Alamy, you obviously already know whats required re images from your camera. If you wish to load mobile phone images you need to use Stockimo the Alamy 'division' that accepts mobile images
  11. So my question (to Alamy I guess, unless someone else can answer) is, if an image is annotated as RF/editorial only, how can it be sold as PU? Personal use does surely not include using in an editorial article? I understood it to be for home print, use on gift cards (not for sale) that type of thing. Anyway, not your issue CRS as you stated all the info required.
  12. I know it does not take much to confuse me, but this I am confused by. How can the image have been RF if it was a street scene with people unless the model releases were obtained for all people and releases for any property? If not, if would surely have to be marked RF/Editorial, in which case how can it be sold as PU, surely PU is not editorial?
  13. just seen on the twitter feed at the side of the page, that they have tweeted they are aware and working on it, but can't give a time frame. I do not have or follow twitter, so noticed by accident. Perhaps it should be mentioned on here for those who don't tweet.
  14. you can take images with an android phone BUT they must be UPLOADED through an 'i' product (iphone, ipad, etc) to stockimo or stockimo news
  15. Edo, as Wim says use your age! here in Portugal you would be getting big discounts on public transport, entry to museums, swimming pools, cinemas, events plus a lot more I would guess. I would think Spain must be the same. Also it may be worth you checking if there is one day per month where heritage sites and museums are free, there is here. Jenny
  16. looks a little like a sabre toothed tiger to me. if not correct it may help steer you in the right direction? or therocephalian Gorynychus masyutinae
  17. I put in a search term and selected 'social' and got back relevant stockimo images
  18. you also need to take more care with RF/RM if there are people in the image even a finger (!) you say there are people and whether or not you have a model release. the same with property. you seem to be marking everything as RF. if you check out the contributor section there is information there about this
  19. Well done Sally, just goes to show what you can achieve with hard work. Your portfolio number for a relatively short time is quite a feat. Just rewards I say. congrats
  20. top right hand corner of the forum page is a search box, put in RM RF or similar and lots will come up from previous discussion. But the contributor page covers a lot of things. Good luck
  21. https://www.alamy.com/contributor/ a link to the contributor home page, information here and by using the search facility of the forum.
  22. Quite a few Alamy images in this article. Sorry I don't have time to look them up, but can say there are images from Northumberland, Amsterdam, Verona, and many more. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/lifestyle/overbooked/?fbclid=IwAR1XdbzdZjrzGG6gjvBrmzQNMvOKjLIVtirLWjI88zNexAUb2tKpLe8Jpus&noredirect=on&utm_term=.fe45bd66f7fa
  23. maybe it was a sale refunded, then sold again? hence the price difference.
  24. I suggest firstly you do some research on the forum. Look at the posts put each month for images found and images sold. Do any of your images seem like they may fit the criteria of what is selling? What about the keywords and captions of those images? Similar to your 'style'? In the images found threads you will see the same names coming up over and over, look at their portfolios. There is alot to learn from this forum edit to say: these threads/subjects come up every month, look back over a few months not just one!
