  1. @Betty LaRue Costrain crop means that you maintain the original photo's ratio (usually 3:2). If you click on the pad lock icon, the pad lock looks open. This means you are free from the original ratio when cropping. I don't think you need to do that. LR also has 'History' section where all the edits are listed. The history will remain intact until you choose to 'close All'. Unlike history in PS, when you can shut down LR and you open LR next day, the history will still be there..... Sung
  2. @Betty LaRue Hope I didn't misunderstood your question/frustration. When I do interior photos, which is fairly often, I always use a tripod with Nikon D800's built in digital spirit level. However when I edit, I often use LR in order to correct verticals precisely, which it is very quick and effective. That is why I was puzzled when you said it is harder to straighten in LR. Just in case, what I do in LR is different from you do. Instead of using ' Crop and straighten' - (this might be what you do), I go to 'Transform' and use 'Auto'. 9 out of 10 time, it doe
  3. I haven't uploaded it yet but I hope it sells. Especially a fellow photographer thinks it is a good close image. Thanks. 😀 How romantic! Certainly they seemed to enjoy the river view. Even they looked as it they were talking to each other. RSPB's map suggests London area has a denser population of these birds. Sung
  4. https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/wildlife-guides/bird-a-z/egyptian-goose/ I found the above based on the info from Spacecadet & Carol.
  5. Egyptian Geese? Wow, where are they going? Stopped in London for sightseeing? By the way, many thanks to Spacecadet & Carol. Sung
  6. Can anyone please help me with ID of these geese? Many thanks in advance. Sung
  7. The graphs illustrate my Gross & Net $$$ and QTY sold since I joined Alamy in 2004. Unfortunately 2019 was a major step back in terms of Net Sales. Sung
  8. Hi Betty. I get your point. In fact admittedly I was thinking about ‘Old Forum’. I am certain we used to be able to insert non-Alamy pictures, didn’t we? I wanted to write a post with some graphs but couldn’t figure out how. Hence I asked. Now I know I can’t. Anyway thank you for your reply. Happy New Year! Sung
  9. Happy New Year, everyone! I want to include some image in a post but without success (not Alamy images, but any random images). I tried 'drag and drop'. It doesn't work. I use a iMac (High Sierra). Is it no longer possible? Any other way without using 'insert images from URL' option? Sung
  10. I thought about it, but I really don't see myself making it. (though I am pretty dextrous with making things.) Thank you anyway. It looks like a simple and easy way to try. Thank you for suggestion. Sung
  11. Very interesting input it was. Thank you very much DJ Myford. As always, sensible suggestion. Thank you, Allan. ------------------------------- When I started this thread, I naively thought someone will give me a simple and clear way to deal with the problem. Unfortunately life is a bit more complicated than I really would like. That's for sure. Thank you everyone. Sung
  12. Thanks Allan, I will have to google to see where I can get it, though. Sung
  13. Blimey! Never see that coming. Certainly look like a fun. Thank you for the info, Spacecadet.
  14. I have a AGFA Isolette 1, which I still use from time to time. It has a leather (I think) bellows which is becoming very dry, hence stiff. Is there any DIY method of softening up the bellows? Sung
  15. As long as a part (main ficus) is in focus, it will pass. Recently I myself loaded some and they were all passed. You might be able to see a few on page 1 of my port. Sung
  16. Very sad news. My thoughts are with his family and friends. RIP...
  17. @spacecadet What do you mean by the 'German dividend'? Sung
  18. I received DACS payments this morning. 😋 24% up from the last year. Sung
  19. In AIM, first click All Submissions on the top left hand corner, then, click Search on the top of the middle part of AIM But this would be keyword search, not Subject search.
