  1. Joseph - if Alamy is actually removing images of low quality, would you expect the Company to advise the image contributor that they have done this? Regards Colin
  2. That is a good point but if it was planned than I would have thought the Alamy Team would have advised us that it was happening?
  3. Alamy appears to be very quiet on the subject....
  4. You are correct - shortly after I posted that all was well. it went skew wiff again!!
  5. I have found that Internet Explorer works fine but Firefox does not - have just cleared cookies/history from Firefox and normal business has resumed :-) I think someone suggested this a few days ago :-)
  6. Hello Orest - I believe it is quantity AND quality - I have less than 600 images with 6 sales last year and 1 so far this year - I intend to upload many more this year :-) your image sare very good by the way :-)
  7. Hey Starsphinx - I agree with you - Ihave under 600 images and have 10 sales in total but 6 this year !!! :-) I'm inspired to increase my images in 2019...best part of your post? 'remember why you love taking pictures' - well said :-)
  8. Hi Everyone - have had a few sales albeit with a low portfolio - I have recently had one sale of $12.56 so was expecting a debit of 50% from Alamy - however, my account reads 30% ($3.77) debit from Alamy and a further 40% ($5.02) Distributor commission - can anybody please explain why the double debit? thank you and best regards colin
  9. I agree with Colblimp - banning to me seems archaic and fulfills nothing...as there is a qc process, all images that do not meet the criteria should be rejected...but to be put on the 'naughty step'? Silly I think and Alamy misses out on potential future sales during the banning period...
  10. Hi Everyone - I have an image that is not yet on sale and needs keywording - I have images of a similar image/locationon Alamy taken a few months ago - is there a way that I can locate the earlier images and transfer the data to the new one on one screen? Thank you all and help greatly appreciated Colin
  11. Very helpful video - particularly around the colour mask - I've used LR4, 5 and 6 and upgraded to LR Classic via the adobe photography plan last week - very pleased with it :-) Not so sure about LR CC to be honest, I do not think I have a use for it... Thanks for posting the vid :-)
  12. Yes same here - no report from Alamy other than they are working on it...
  13. Thank you Aylish but I used to be able to see all submissions as thumb nails spread over a couple of pages - I currently have around 180 submissions, so viewing by submission is cumbersome - thank you for your response though :-) best regards
  14. Hi Bryan - thank you for your response - I missed the keyword search you have pointed out :-) that helps as I wish to revisit certain images to enhance keywording - thank you very much :-)
  15. Hello Everyone - a question - is it possible to view my images as thumbnails in Alamy Manager? I remember that I used to be able to do this and the system changed to viewing by date. Thank you, Colin
  16. Not sure if I am off topic here :-) but here goes... I joined Alamy in March 2015 and over the following few months placed some 70 images on the site - in June 15 I made my first sale of $7 and in Jan 2016 my second sale for the same amount. What an absolute buzz these sales gave me!!! To think that someone liked my images enough to spend money on them - the amount, to me, was of no consequence as an enthusiastic amateur. Since retiring and over the past few weeks I have placed a further 200 images r so on the site - again, the buzz I get when my images pass QC :-)))) Positive?? You bet I am!!!!!!!!
  17. Thank you Matt :-) we are moving to Nth Dorset soon (August) so I will not be pounding the Reading area much longer - best regards colin
