  1. Can you take a screen shot Terry? That may help us work it out
  2. Hi Sally, I think you are correct and that it is one of the Metrosideros. I did not manage to get out yesterday to get an image of the flowers, I have them on my mobile but not sure how to upload that here. I did ask on a local FB page and that seems to be the consensus of opinion. I should of mentioned the photograph is taken in Portugal and they do grow well here along the coast. I will try to get out and take some pics today and get them uploaded to confirm, the other one I now think is a quince bud, again need to upload a photo of the flowers open. Hopefully I will manage to get
  3. thats great John thank you. I will see if I can find an image of the top one in flower, (I think I had one that I was not happy to upload), and will get out an take a photo of the bottom one.
  4. The second one has red flowers that look very similar to bottle brush flowers, but I know its not that. Thanks in advance.
  5. no sales showing for me here this month, but some cleared payments took me well into the payment threshold and thanks to using the firefox add on that someone mentioned, I know I have at least 3 sales coming. Happy with the level of zooms too.
  6. Allan, i purchased one of the double height airbeds with a built in pump. Have to say it is great and very comfortable. I slept on it for 6 months, and when I have visitors I happily give up my bed for them and use the airbed myself. The only time I had a problem was when I did not turn the deflate/inflate dial enough after inflating (it has to go to the middle or something) and air was slowly leaking out so by morning it had lost its firmness.
  7. This is the response I received from CR. Note the wording "uploads from mobile phones" I wonder, from this, if the issue is when mobile phone images are uploaded via a computer and not the phone itself, then they are not being blocked. Anyway, we have an answer of sorts. There has been no change in policy. Upload should block all uploads from mobile phones, if some have gotten through then there could have been a temporary fault we are unaware of. Regards Alamy CR
  8. Only a little thing, but they are often the big things.... I have been feeling a little down the last couple of days, living alone and not having very good weather always make things seem worse. I was supposed to fly back to UK a couple of days ago but obviously cancelled so have missed staying with my daughter (who just turned 30, missed that), going to see my mum on her 84th birthday (today), she lives alone too, and seeing my son and other family members. But a friend rang my door bell a couple of hours ago and over the gate she handed me a bag. Inside was a book for me to read but most
  9. I have emailed and asked, obviously it will take time for a response at the moment, but will post when I hear back. If other people are 'testing the water' after reading that post, it is not good.
  10. I will ask Alamy and post the response, as someone else has just posted on the same FB page that they have just had some accepted too.
  11. I got the impression that it was 'normal' stock. I had a quick look on her portfolio and could not see any recent stuff as live news, but it was a quick look. she said she had been taking images whilst out on walks during the lock downs, so recent stuff. And I recall the other contributor who had mentioned it here had just loaded via the normal stock route. I was surprised because I did think the software automatically checked on upload as you say.
  12. Further to someone (do not recall who) mentioning on one of the forum posts recently that he had sent and had accepted some mobile phone images (onto Alamy not S******O) I just noticed someone saying on a FB page for A**** contributors that they have been sending images from a Samsung mobile and they have been getting through not problem. Which will no doubt lead to others doing the same. Has Alamy changed the rules? I always thought these were pulled up immediately on upload.
  13. have you tried searching by your name and google books or the other way around? I found a book cover of mine by searching that way as opposed to by the image, turned out they had only used a fraction of the image and to be honest do not think I would of recognised it if I had seen it, as had been filtered too. Nice 450 sale for me though
  14. I don't think I have, but you may well have a point there. Hopefully Alamy will come along at some point and define this for us.
  15. Just my opinion, an artist is someone who creates a unique piece of artwork, be it a painting, sculpture etc. A stained glass window will be a unique piece of art, albeit created with the use of glass as opposed to paint. And yes, I think your mothers quilt may well be a piece of art
  16. I don't think it will relate to landmarks, stained glass is categorised as Artwork, which can not be marked exclusive
  17. I can see what looks like a creature with wings coming out of the water on the right hand section. Now I see it, I can not unsee it! Can anyone else?
  18. A friend volunteers at a local dog shelter. I have said since I lost my last dog and gained my 'freedom' that I would not have another. I do occasional dog sitting to help friends out when they go away. Well, I seem to have just talked myself into 'fostering' a dog from the kennels who had a puppy overnight. The kennels were not aware she was pregnant. So looks like I will be confined to quarters with a dog and a newborn puppy.
  19. I have quite a few images that I should be editing and uploading but just do not have the enthusiasm. I am now having my Portuguese language lessons via Skype instead of one-to-one, so I always have plenty of homework to do from that. I keep telling myself to switch off from the internet, but it draws you back Today I think I will finish my homework in preparation for my lesson in the morning, take a walk to the communal rubbish bins, then get out a jigsaw puzzle. Oh, and make a quiche of which I can eat some over the next couple of days, and slice and freeze the rest.
  20. new regulations are coming into force here in Portugal. No school, college etc. libraries closed, restrictions on numbers of people allowed in restaurants etc, only 10 people allowed at funerals (in my area, not sure if that is countrywide), no going to church, Easter at Fatima cancelled I believe. As of Monday most if not all of the bars in my area are closing for at least two weeks. There is a run on a lot of the supermarkets at the moment but thats only really happened in the last couple of days. Our number of suspected cases has doubled in the last 24 hours
  21. And appears to be yet another person who asks for advice and then completely ignores it or even acknowledge it :(
