  1. Favourite Photos in July

    Oh right, thanks for clarifying.
  2. Favourite Photos in July

    Shot on an iPhone and is not an S series photo? I didn’t think that iPhone pics could be uploaded to the regular Alamy Platform.

  5. Successful Shoots

    I have done two stock shoots at this one place that has very limited access and so far they have grossed $11,220, but not sure how many sales that was altogether, without going back and counting them. 28 images in total are in the Alamy collection.

  7. Instagram

    Hi Bob, I usually do 1000px wide so that will hold up on an ipad or computer screen. These are for non iphone pics, ones shot with my regular cameras.
  8. Instagram

    So funny, I was just about the post the same thought! I think it was done a while back but I am sure more people are on there now. Would gladly follow any of the fellow Forum mates! Mine is: michaelventuraphoto or https://www.instagram.com/michaelventuraphoto/
  9. Images Sold in July (one per day per contributor)

    Well the dam finally broke last night and some nice value sales came in, 3 over $100! July has been saved! Here is one of them for an educational use.
  10. Still all zeros today.
  11. Going back to PC

    I have an iPhone and an ipad but when it comes to working on photos on a desktop, I have a very powerful PC that my son's friend built, last year, for me for under $1000. It handles full resolution files from my D850 with ease and speed. To get a Mac with similar power would have been way out of my budget.
  12. It's oh so quiet...

    A slow first half of July for me. Some sales but below average for sure.

  22. Pride in London – are you one of the 500 accredited media?

    I hope some of you London based Live News togs plan to cover the Trump protests this coming week.
  23. Pride in London – are you one of the 500 accredited media?

    I don't know, maybe Thong would be more appropriate for a Pride Parade!
  24. How was your June?

    I have to agree that posting gross totals is not helpful. But what is helpful is to know if the month was average, above average or below average (for each contributor)....we can better gauge if there is a trend happening. I know that is not scientific but maybe more helpful than knowing the $$$.
