  1. 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
  2. I don't think it will relate to landmarks, stained glass is categorised as Artwork, which can not be marked exclusive
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. And appears to be yet another person who asks for advice and then completely ignores it or even acknowledge it :(
  8. I have already removed the word Buddha as I know its not, can anyone help with ID for this goddess thanks.
  9. As Paulette says you have some lovely images, and need more added to your portfolio, with the inclusion of the latin names for animals and plants. I am just going out of the door so do not have time to give examples of specific images, but I noticed that your keywords need to be looked at very carefully. You need to say what is in the image. I noticed you have some of a village in Italy, you mention snow, there is no snow in the image (there were others that were not appropriate, but as I say rushing out). One of your lion images says mouth open....it is not. If you have a lion, include singul
  10. I have no idea, but what is really weird is that when looking at AOA and seeing one of these types of searches, even when it shows hundreds of images have come back in that search, if I click it, it says can't find anything ! I have tried it with quite of few of them. Maybe it's unique to a particular client?
  11. I thought that at first, but I think it maybe is a typo and he meant to say 'now' as opposed to 'not'
  12. Thanks. I think I would worry too much and maybe tend to be overly cautious. As you say too, often not worth the time and effort trying to remove.
  13. Just out of interest would you of uploaded that? With the fringing I mean. And please take that as its meant, a genuine question because I always bin anything like that, in fact have done today when editing. Is there a way to tell what is genuine CA or just the effect you refer to? I am thinking now I am maybe erring too far on the side of caution ??? I spend ages sometimes faffing around with images with that only to give up and bin them !
  14. Hi Josh Firstly you have some lovely images. If you use the search facility or just trawl back through the forum you will find lots of information relating to all of your questions. Have a look at the 'images found in ....' threads which run every month, also 'images sold in ...' again every month. Although they are not exhaustive they will give you an idea. In your dashboard, measures, click on All of Alamy, select dates or just 'yesterday' and again you will see SOME of the images that have been sold. (Note, not ALL images sold will be shown on AOA). Keywording....what is in
  15. in UK we use blackboard more than chalkboard, plus love heart
  16. Alex have you not noticed you have won the December challenge? Who needs 5 stars eh?
  17. I was wondering about this too and with the removal of private messaging I wonder if the best thing is to find his original post in the competition, use it as a quote (as I have with yours), and then when he next logs in he will get a notification. Just a thought.
  18. Apparently some people think they are buying the actual product ! I am not sure how, maybe they search google for the product, end up directed to Alamy and don't realise its a stock photo agency ? I have just had one too. Then I guess once they get a 'file' with the image they ask for the refund. It seems to happen a lot, hopefully Alamy will find a way around this happening, especially as obviously the 'file' can't be returned unused!!
  19. Mine has been refunded today Surely there must be a way for Alamy to ensure upon a personal use purchase the buyer is informed correctly!?
  20. Yes me too, just had a personal use for an image of some medication. I expect it will be refunded
