  1. Yes, they are. Uploaded some and accepted several days ago. Sung
  2. Gross 279.28 sale appeared today. The highest value so far in 2019. Sung
  3. Thank you, Marianne When I read your thread the first time, I thought "OMG! Do I now have to add all single word keywords to my images (Alamy), too?" Afterwards I read it a several time more, then I realise that you were referring to other agencies. Nevertheless, I wanted to make sure that I understood correctly, so I asked the question. Thank you for your time to explain the art of keywording. Sung 😊
  4. Hi Marianne You are not referring to Alamy in the above highlighted context, are you? I just want to understand how Alamy's keywording works. That's all. Sung
  5. Have you tried to close it by holding 'Option'+'Command'+'esc' (force quit) at the same time? If it doesn't work, I would press and hold the power button to turn it off (I suppose if you do that, Safari will open again when you restart. So it is not a solution)? Sung
  6. With iPhone Note app as Paulette said, you can create multiple pages documents, too, by keep adding new scans to the same ‘Note’. Sung
  7. Now I scan all my purchase invoices, receipts etc and store digitally (PDF) with my iPhone. The quality, in my opinion, is good enough for documents scanning. Sung
  8. PS. When you go back by using Time Machine, you might loose files which you created after the upgrade, depending on where you store your data.
  9. Have you been backing up using Time Machine? If so, you might be able to revert your iMac back to the status before you upgraded to Mojave. If not, why don’t you scan your documents with your iPhone and send them first? And, then try to solve the problems. Sung
  10. You are welcome. Glad to help you. Sung
  11. Betty what I am saying may not be what you are looking for, but you seem so desperate. Don’t use the knife, it not worth it. I am not sure about other things, but I might be able to help you with the last question. When you open a raw file from Bridge (using ACR), the setting for bit depth is under the main picture. You can change colour space, bit depth, resolution etc. Is this what you are looking for? If not, ignore my reply. I am sure MDM is on his way. International Rescue!!!! Sung
  12. I see. I will try Dropbox in that case. Thank you MDM. Sung
  13. I used to be able to do it in the old forum but now I can't figure out how to do it. I searched the forum with no success. I have a couple of screenshots which I want to include in a thread when I am asking a question for some advice. Please help. Thanks in advance. Sung
  14. Thanks, Johnnie5. Very useful info. Sung
  15. I think the photo of people on escalator looks as if it received too much treatment of noise reduction. (Mind you, I am looking at it on a very low budget laptop. I am away from home at them moment). Edit) and looks oversharpened IMHO. Sung
  16. Thank you, MDM As always very helpful advice. I will need to find at least a half day free and to sit down and go through the process. Not particularly looking forward to it. However, when I boot up from the external SSD drive, it is like a totally separate machine, therefore, I cannot access directly any files or apps inside of my iMac. Yes, It is the same machine but running on an OS from the external SSD drive, so it behaves like another machine. Hence I will need to reinstall CS6, Parallels (with Windows XP softwares), etc. Luckily all my working dat
  17. Following advice from helpful photographers on Alamy forum. (Previous threadhttps://discussion.alamy.com/topic/10382-photoshop-cs6-nik-collection-high-sierra/?tab=comments#comment-185792) Slowly I carried out what I had to do before I am ready to update to OS High Sierra as below. (I am currently running OS Sierra.) I purchased a SSD external drive. I formatted the external drive for iMac. I installed 'macOS Sierra' on this external drive. I went to through usual set up process. I reiterate that the only reason why I am doing this is
  18. Oh, I see. ACR... So the same with the Lightroom. Never think it that way. It's pretty obvious, isn't it? With regard to interior shots, thank you again for the info. I have been using either several Gradient tools for various areas in LR or masks, layers and merging in PS to deal with this problem. Your are right, the more you do, the better you get. Thank you, Wim. Sung
  19. Thank you Wim for the detailed information. With my imited knowledge, a while ago I bought a LED because it was advertised as 'daylight balanced'. However as you say I also find it very greenish (though it looks like daylight to naked eyes). How do you measure the K degrees with Photoshop? Recently I have done quite a few interior photography for clients. A few places were lit by both daylightish lights (LED I guess) and very yellow lights. In post production, it was difficult/impossible to find a happy medium to balance both lights. Sung
  20. What is your LED's Kelvin degree? Can you buy a 6500K? A while ago, I bought a 6000K. Do you think it's good enough? I suppose you can only do reflective meter reading, but isn't your screen more reflective? Or is it negligible? Sung
  21. I would like to add a couple things to what I said earlier. When I mentioned my workflow about printing via a pro lab, I made an assumption that your monitor is calibrated (with a hardware). That is the first step in colour management. Without the monitor calibration, there is no point of soft proofing. A small (well known) tip. When you soft proof in either CS or Lightroom, just before clicking on the menu (I use shortcut, it is easier) or ticking the box of 'Soft Proof', look away. Otherwise, you will be horrified by the change. In reality the change itself is n
  22. It might be irrelevant to your problem but when I send my files to pro lab, this is what I do. 1. I ask for printer profile from the lab. If they say they don’t have it, or they don’t need it, move on to the next pro lab. 2. With the printer profile installed, I carry out soft proof, in my case, in CS6. You can also use Lightroom. 3. When I am happy, I save it as highest quality jpeg and send it to them. No need for tiff. 4. I ask the pro lab, do not do any adjustments to the image when printing. 5. Soft proofing is not exact science as it relies on human
  23. Thanks for your info. Nice to know it is still available in certain shops. Sung
  24. Thank you very much everyone for sharing experiences and advice, you have been as always very helpful. Recently, I have been using Live View a lot, hence my batteries are getting knackered. Thank you for the link, Wim. Yes, you are right, MDM. I had better hurry just in case. Slightly off the topic, my EN EL3e batteries (D300, my backup) will not charge beyond approx 70%. Any advice, please? Sung
  25. I use a Nikon D800 with two batteries. One of batteries now reached 3 in Battery Age (0-4), so any day it will become 4 and I will need a replacement. No camera shops seem to stock these batteries any more and I am reluctant to buy the replacement from either eBay or Amazon. Then I came across DuracellDirect.co.uk where they sell Duracell DRNEL15 replacement for Nikon EN EL15. My question is Has anyone ever used this Duracell replacement battery before (for any DSLRs)? Duracell replacement is 7.4V 1600 mAh whereas Nikon EN EL15 is 7.0V 1900m
