  1. I am probably wrong but thought it was an african daisy, osteospermum
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. I am in Portugal and more often than not am unable to view any of their news stories that have videos.
  5. Ask Alamy to delete it, simple. BUT as per your contract/agreement, images will not be fully deleted for up to 6 months.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Thanks Gareth. Unfortunately, (and annoyingly) the Sony remote function will not work in Portugal, so will take a look at that.
  9. 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.
  10. Stockimo images are not accessible via Image Manager, only via your stockimo app
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. https://www.alamy.com/myupload/help/AIM-InstructionManual.pdf#page=16 or this https://www.alamy.com/blog/tagging-images-on-alamy
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. does it include images that maybe failed QC or that you might have deleted?
  17. Paulette, I do not think you want to be up a ladder if mum or dad decided to dive bomb you!
  18. My understanding is that you can not have them as RM here if you have them as RF somewhere else. So if they are RF elsewhere, like one of the micros, they must be RF here
  19. agree with what has already been said, just want to mention, I looked at your two images with the oak panelling, you do not use the words 'wood or wooden' you may want to include them and lottery has two t's not the one you have. Jenny
  20. I am having dinner with some friends this coming week, in a restaurant, we are being given a private room (sounds posh ), and I am looking forward to it immensely but also with some trepidation. There are two small children going, I must try not to shriek if one wants to sit on my lap haha. But you are right, times like that remind us so much of how we need that interaction, but if someone had asked me three months ago I would of told them how happy I am with my own company! How little did I know. Good luck with the writing. And we must all hope there is not a second surge.....but I am stocki
  21. Good morning Edo, just read your blog post and it resonated with me. It is very difficult, I think, when living on your own during this 'crisis'. I have pretty much perfected having a conversation with myself and not letting it spiral into an argument ! I am struggling, I have to be honest, really struggling. Having no contact with people from one day to the next is so hard. People message and say, "how are you doing, are your ok?" "yes, yes, I am fine, same old", but it is not, it is hard and I do not want people to worry, so say everything is fine. I go to the shops maybe once in 10 da
  22. I think that Alamy have been very good to allow this thread, but I do not think that posting a link to the portfolio of someone else who is supplying SS is appropriate here, or any portfolio linked to a competitors site for that matter.
