  1. Just received confirmation through. Thanks everyone, all the very best wishes.
  2. I sent an email to Alamy yesterday to close my account, I sent it to contributor relations. Other than the standard email that comes back straight away I have not heard any more. For those that have requested account closure, how long did it take for Alamy to acknowledge it? Many thanks Jenny
  3. Were these sold as part of the NU (novel use) scheme? It should tell you in the sales report. Touch wood I have never had sales as low as that, but I am not in the NU scheme I opted out. For you information you can remove your images from NU, BUT only in April of each year.
  4. I went to the supermarket today and as we are in lockdown (except for essentials) and have further restrictions coming into force this evening, I expected it to be busy. I really did not want to go over the weekend when it will be busier. Was very pleasantly surprised that it was virtually empty. Lots of the bits I wanted were on offer and when I went through the till I was given a swish cool bag with products inside as I had spent more than 75 euros. (I spent 77). When I got home and emptied the bag it was all sensible items you would normally buy, like kitchen roll, fabric softener, pasta et
  5. Alamy answered you three hours ago on the other posting you had put
  6. my most licenced image has sold 12 times but always for small amounts due to its use.
  7. I know the subject of duplicated images came up recently with regard to PA, but I would like to know about all the other agencies that are duplicating images. I often come across images that have been duplicated, more often than not by big agencies, not good if a search is done and maybe only two pages of images come up but 25% of them are duplicated. Also just a week or so ago I came across a contributor that had posted over 1500 images on two different pseudonyms. Does Alamy want these pointed out to them like the PA ones were? Or are they to be ignored?
  8. I thought they still had to go via S*******O route. I thought they had a news upload function via that. Has that altered in the last couple of years?
  9. You probably need to start a separate thread for this question, on the quality control section of the forum. I think you will get more of a response. Personally I have never heard of that reason for fail. Jenny
  10. I agree with Gen your food shots are lovely BUT you seem to have made the common mistake of having more than one image selected when you are adding your keywords and captions. Some of your other food shots have all the information that you put for the chocolate cupcakes. When you select an image to add keywords (tags) make sure you click on it again to deselect once you are finished. I would get those changed as soon as possible or they will not be found in searchs or will come up as irrelevant.
  11. I am probably wrong but thought it was an african daisy, osteospermum
  12. Douglas I know you did not ask, but just thought I would point out, when keywording (tagging) your images, make sure you are deselecting the previous one. If you do not deselect then those tags will go onto the next image(s), as seems to have happened with yours. You have a lot that have the tags etc for the blue angel on the bench and it has happened with other images like the corn on roadside. Make the corrections now while you only have a small portfolio or your images will never be found by buyers.
  13. almost definitely a beef cow due to the straight back. Could also be crossed, but try Normande as a start, but that is a dairy cow 🤔 but markings look right
  14. I am in Portugal and more often than not am unable to view any of their news stories that have videos.
  15. Ask Alamy to delete it, simple. BUT as per your contract/agreement, images will not be fully deleted for up to 6 months.
  16. 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
  17. 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 wou
  18. Thanks Gareth. Unfortunately, (and annoyingly) the Sony remote function will not work in Portugal, so will take a look at that.
  19. 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.
  20. Stockimo images are not accessible via Image Manager, only via your stockimo app
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
