  1. 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
  2. I put in a search term and selected 'social' and got back relevant stockimo images
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. https://www.alamy.com/contributor/ a link to the contributor home page, information here and by using the search facility of the forum.
  7. 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
  8. maybe it was a sale refunded, then sold again? hence the price difference.
  9. 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!
  10. Edo, try Idealista they seem to have lots of apartments. good luck Jenny
  11. Hi Edo Glad to hear you are there now but obviously not your accommodation worries. Don't wish to try to teach you to suck eggs, but have you tried 'friending' a local bar owner, shop keeper, waiter? Get chatting with them and I would like to bet one of them will know of something available, or failing that they may be able to direct you to a local website, bit like craigslist, that type of thing. Also there is Facebook marketplace, I know around me here in Portugal lots of people put places to let on there, you have to join Facebook of course Hope you manage to find something soon, its
  12. My income figure this year so far puts me about 25% above last year, with a few months to go. This is mainly due to a book cover sale earlier in the year. The last couple of months have been a bit barren but will not complain as have not added much to my portfolio in the last few years, all very much dribs and drabs, something I keep meaning to change, but four house moves in two years has been a little time consuming to say the least! So, so far, 2018 has been a very positive year for me, except for slipping on the rocks at the rock pools this morning at low tide hoping my camera is ok as w
  13. fantastic news Ed, now the adventure begins. wishing you all the best. Jenny
  14. Hi Edo, I thought you wanted a city ? I don't think Nazare will be enough for you. It is absolutely rammed with tourists in summer too Having said that the transport links from larger towns and cities are normally very good and inexpensive anywhere in Portugal, if you chose Nazare and wanted to get around. From me I can get a bus south to Lisbon every hour and takes 50 mins. (Really should go more often haha). I am a little further down the coast, below Peniche. You have my email if you want more info on this area. Jenny
  15. Yes think you are right, it should be my next step. All works fine on my ipad just not my pc. Cheers
  16. thanks everyone, must just be me. only trying to go back one month, never had an issue before. Have a good weekend everyone, cheers
  17. I am trying to look back at old zooms on my alamy, but although it is letting me change the start date for the search, it does not appear to be searching or amending the results. Has anyone else had this problem? thanks
  18. have been without internet for a few weeks so only just noticed this thread, or the latest on it. Ed, I live an hour north of Lisbon, been in Portugal for 8 some years now. Anything you would like to ask, please feel free. Let me know and we will try to sort how to contact (now there is no PM available), as don't want to fill this thread. Jenny
  19. Firstly, the three images I looked at did not even mention aircraft, aeroplane or the type of. Flying, sky etc etc. get those important tags in! What do you see? Then as long as you have all relevant tags don't worry about going 'green' sear h on the forums, its been discussed many times before. But the most important is the relevant
  20. Are you uploading them all in one batch or one at a time?
  21. Hi all, thank you for taking time. Just to clarify I only put the commas above to seperate the words for my question in this post, I don't put them in when tagging and would definitely put X Market, and X market London as seperate tags. My main concern was the order they sat in. Thank you again, I will carry on updating and amending as I have been. Have a good week. Jenny
  22. thank you, I was getting worried that all of the legacy images I have already gone through would need to be done again! Phew.
  23. I am confused (not hard!) as to whether the order of tags and supertags is important. What I mean is if I had an image of A market in London for example, and in my supertags I had vegetables, fruit, stall, vendor, X market, London.....etc etc, would it appear higher in a search for X market, London, if I adjusted the order of the supertags, placing X market, London, before the other supertags? If it is, is there an easy way to move them around? Thanks
