  1. thanks everyone, must just be me. only trying to go back one month, never had an issue before. Have a good weekend everyone, cheers
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Are you uploading them all in one batch or one at a time?
  6. 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
  7. thank you, I was getting worried that all of the legacy images I have already gone through would need to be done again! Phew.
  8. 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
  9. I emailed CR and this is what they said Quote:- You can add filters to images going in the main collection but they still need to meet our technical requirements. We usually don’t recommend adding certain filters to images as it gives customers less scope to do what they want with the images. If you leave images natural, customers can then add a filter if they want to. -end quote I am most surprised about the scratchy type filter as in the one I originally mentioned, but hey, live and learn.
  10. Wow, thanks everyone. Either I completely misunderstood (way back when I read the rules ) or I missed a change along the way. That will teach me to keep having long breaks in uploading. Have a good weekend everyone and stay warm and dry whereever you are.
  11. I was going to ask before as have started to see various filters cropping up, like vintage type, but this particular one is what I would decribe as 'mobile phonish'.
  12. I notice on the images sold March thread an image with vintage retro filter, (very instagrammy) but not a number from the 'S......o' type of images. I always thought we could not put filters like that. Has that changed or was it never the case and I misunderstood?
  13. I have taken a screenshot if required as its only on the front page of the BBC website and I can't seem to get a link using ipad
  14. Little bit off topic, but may be worth you reporting to someone incase they were poisoned? And I would definitely upload them
  15. I would just like to say thank you to all who commented on a recent post of mine re luminence noise. Most of you saw colour noise which I was not seeing. So after looking via another screen there it was clear as day! So I ordered a calibrator and when it arrived and I duly attached it for use I then discovered my PC was not recognising my graphics card and therefore could not calibrate the screen, apparently it was not there although I was viewing images on something in front of me! Anyway, all too technical for me, so off for repair. The pricely sum of €20 later gave me a whole new viewing ex
  16. yes I think I will do that. There is a change in weather coming so will be ideal (for photographs, not for me, haha) I have stopped all editing now and waiting for the delivery of a Spyder calibrater, for some strange reason my PC running windows 7 will not allow me to calibrate via Windows calibration on my HP monitor, but Spyder will be better anyway. I am seriously doubting what I am currently seeing now.
  17. add the keywords when you are editing, then they will go on automatically. then when they have passed, decide which ones you want as supertags
  18. Thanks again to everyone for your comments. The example images I posted were completely unedited. One thing that has become obvious is that my moniter needs calibrating again. It is something I have not done for a while and now from comments and seeing my examples on the ipad I realise it needs doing. The noise in the sky has no colour on my monitor but does on my ipad and others see it too. Its good to know also, that most of you don't think the noise as big an issue as I do. I will do the lens testing, calibrate the monitor and take it from there. I wonder also if having the onse
  19. Wow, Wim thank you so much. I will certainly carry out the test. Very detailed. Thanks. And yes blockiness is exactly how I would describe the sky and had assumed luminence noise, mainly because it or similar appears on the water too. I will get the test done and see the results. amazing help and thank you sincerely for taking the time. Jenny
  20. Thanks for taking a look Betty. Its luminence noise as opposed to noise as in from high iso, not sure if you mean that? But i am having to reduce by around 40, I have used the gradient tool on other images before, but just feel it should not be necessary all the time . I think as John has said it may be the harsh light from the time of day possibly? Ha yes, horizons, hehe, fix those when I edit. I did actually wonder if my focus problems as sometimes due to a heavy handbag over that left shoulder (!) but went with a backpack deliberately today to see, but doesn't seem to have made much differe
  21. Thanks again John, will have a good look at that this week. I did wonder if the lighting may be part of the cause of the luminence noise, I will have to get out a bit earlier in the day. Cheers
