  1. Scott, I have a portfolio of 28K images with Alamy which I have amassed over 17 years. Whilst the continuing reduction in contributor percentage of sales, particularly the most recent one is very disappointing, I also feel the rates from Alamy are still among the rest of the agencies. In addition, apart from the images submitted having to be technically clean, there is virtually no refusal of images as long as they do not fall into "forbidden" categories like pornography, glamour etc. The most common reasons for failure in quality control are out of focus of the main subject, and d
  2. This maybe something everyone was already aware of, so my apologies if it's wasting your time! However I have only recently realised it, and it can be quite helpful.

Let's just hope the search engine survives any changes intact. That's the much more important result of these changes for me. Kumar
  5. Congrats on your win Abiyoyo, and great subject for this month's challenge! Here are my three: 1. Norwich market on an autumn evening: 2. Ecuadorian women in traditional costume buying/selling goods at the local market: 3. Scene in traditional village market, Myanmar, Asia: Kumar
  6. No rope, no insurance, but I did then join her for the (amazing) view!
  7. My better half at Devil's Pool, Victoria Falls; to Japan for TV but for a measly low$$ - unusually low for this type of use Kumar
  8. I gather that, sadly, Colblimp (Andy Gibson) has left the forum. A regular contributor of succinct comments and sometimes pithy remarks, and also excellent photography, particularly to Alamy News, he will be missed. Kumar
  9. Interesting - I am on chrome as well and don't get any alerts when visiting Ian's link, - Maybe your end Harry? Kumar
