  1. Sorry to hear you are going - all the best for the future! Kumar
  2. Plus 1 for the 24-105; I had a 5D MkI and now have the MkII, and continue to use Canon's 24-105 for the vast majority of my shooting - I agree CA can be noticeable but thats easily dealt with by RAW software. Also a little barrel distortion at the wide end, but the range of the lens is very useful and although the max aperture is a little slow I have found the IS works well and happily hand-hold it at 1/8-1/15 sec at the wide end. I also have the 75-200 f2.8 MkII which is an absolutely superb lens - and though I have the 100-400, I now rarely use it as I got the MkIII x2 extender to use wi
  3. Hi Dave Thanks very much for looking - you are I think the first person apart from MS who has managed to see them all properly. I still can only see them on mouse-over and zoom. It may well be that Kathy's suggestion is the best one, especially as the problem does not seem to be happening this week. I will now keyword four images and see if they are OK tomorrow! Edit - I have keyworded 3 images from the D8F batch, and one from the D8D batch - interesting to see if the 3 from the D8F batch are the ones with problems tomorrow!! Kumar Sriskandan Case proven - of the 4 images I
  4. Hi Christian58 The best way to have a batch of images deleted is to e mail their ref. numbers to MS and they will delete them all for you very effectively from the following working day Kumar Sriskandan
  5. Agreed. I have 8gb RAM and can't see the images. This is definitely an Alamy bug which I am sure they will sort out Kumar Sriskandan
  6. Hi Tiago! You don't need signed model releases unless you are licensing the image as RF, or you are hoping for commercial rather than editorial sales of the image. Most of us do not get model releases signed by people in street photos as they are likely to have an RM licence and be used for editorial use - the chances are that even if you got model releases signed you would also need property releases for RF Kumar Sriskandan
  7. Hi K_M; I remember that that is correct for compressed size, and I seem to remember reading somewhere that 200MB was the maximum accepted uncompressed size - never got anywhere near that but some who stick 3 or 4 images together to form a panorama might get close Kumar Sriskandan

  9. I too have had an acknowledgement from MS that they are aware of the problem and are trying to sort it, but it is still very definitely not working properly this morning. I still have 12 images which "went live" on thursday and friday last week and still cant be seen.- I wont be keywording any more images till its sorted! Kumar Sriskandan
  10. 40 licences, $2.4K gross; a good month, and also good zoom numbers In Newspaper scheme, not in NU Kumar S
  11. Hi guys! I think this thread is duplicated in the thread entitled "May sales" which started first .... Kumar Sriskandan

    Unidentifiable people

    I suspect the problem Alamy have is that they may be completely un-identifiable in the image, but if that image is then used for a commercial use, say an advert, and someone comes forward and says "That is me in the background" and either demands a fee, or threatens to sue, then actually it would cause a lot of hassle, which is why I think the rules need to be so very strict...

  13. I have asked MS to look at this thread as there certainly seems to be a problem, and presumably for the buyers also! Kumar Sriskandan
  14. Hi all! Yesterday several of my images went on sale and I noticed that 7 of them could not be seen - just replaced with a small image icon and the Alamy number. When the mouse was hovered over them the image could be seen, and indeed zoomed normally when clicked on. I waited till today to see if the problem had resolved, but more of my images went on sale today and another 5 could not be seen - neither on desktop computer or iPad (with fast BT Infinity broadband connection) I e-mailed MS and they said the images could be seen and e-mailed me a screenshot saying it was most likely t
  15. Hi Southpole, individual images dont have a CTR; collections of an individual pseudonym have a CTR which will vary depending over which period of time you calculate it. If theoretically, individual images did have a CTR, then for most of us the vast majority of images would have a CTR of 0 as that will always be the case unless the image was zoomed during the period of time the CTR was being calculated over (CTR = Click Through Rate, ie the number of times images have been zoomed/ the number of times the images have been viewed x 100) So, you have no worries Kumar Sriskan
  16. I believe the threshold is $175 cleared funds. Better than the $250 it used to be till a couple of years ago. Good photo by the way - and very relevant to the news re bees these days! $20 is unlikely to be the Daily Fail... Kumar Sriskandan
  17. Hi Southpole You dont get an e-mail when a sale is made - its up to you to look in the "Images sold" section in your "My Alamy" page, where the sale(s) will appear! Kumar Sriskandan
  18. Congratulations on your first sale! Good feeling isn't it? It was the custom on the old forum to buy the other forum members a drink....Mine's a pint!... The most likely place for your image from those sales figures is the Daily Mail - if so, bad luck - you may well gross only $7-8 You are right - it will have been used about 3mths ago if you let us know which image it was someone may have seen it Congrats again Kumar Sriskandan
  19. Thanks Tim for finding those!!, and DavidC for that - some sort of record for me - bit like waiting for a number 61 bus....!! Kumar Sriskandan
  20. So, I think, do your three images taken in an English back garden if you do not have property releases for them. If its your garden, sign a property release and you can keep them as RF. If its the garden of someone you know get them to sign one, Otherwise they should be RM also. Buildings or property which play a small part in an image like buildings in a skyline view of a village or town taken from a distance don't need a PR, but property which is quite obviously playing a major part in the image do. Kumar Sriskandan
  21. I agree historically the fees for RF were always better - it does not seem that way now - Like David I have very few images that qualify for RF - probably about 3-4% - The advantages of RF were that they generally earned more, and they often appeared higher up in the searches. These days I doubt overall they pay more, and of course with the IQ system that Alamy is trying to push to keep firms paying for the RM images if they use them again, RF could well in the longer term pay less. I am tending to licence fewer and fewer images RF these days, and I dont have images on any microstock s
  22. Phil - Was it one of these? Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Textbook - print and e-book Print run: Unlimited Placement: Inside Image Size: 2 page spread Start: 01 January 2014 End: 01 January 2039 All terms and rights granted as per the Alamy Preferred Vendor Agreement dated 26th January 2010 prevail. Flat rate per image, license period 20 years. $180 I had one also today, my second of these this month which hopefully demonstrates that the $180 textbook sales which seemed to have disappeared a few months ago are back...
