  1. It's not just the Danish ones. AIM doesn't display images with German umlauts Ä, Ö, Ü and the ß. In fact, if you have the character in your file name, they disappear completely.
  2. Declining distributor sales?

    I've had many distributor sales this month (France and Italy).
  3. I once attended a so-called "love parade" in Duisburg and I left quite early. When I got home, I found out that there had been a major disaster with more than 20 people dead. The following day I went back and took lots of pictures of candles and posters and I was allowed to enter the tunnel where the disaster had happened as I had an accreditation for the event. There were chalk outlines of where people had died etc. Here's a link: https://tinyurl.com/yaykhxn4 It was bad then, but it was really really bad when I looked at the pictures afterwards.
  4. August Challenge - NEWS

    Here's my three pics. Downing Street protest after the Grenfell Tower fire Press photographers waiting for Boris to slip ... Brexit means Brexit
  5. Unfortunately, I'm in the same position as you. :-(
  6. It might be worthwhile to keep it in your pocket for breaking news.
  7. [LU]

    Only until April ...
  8. [LU]

    Both images (AYBFWR and FP0T79) that were sold as Novel Use images were searched as LU. Only novel use image sales I've had in a long time.
  9. [LU]

    I had someone searching for a picture of mine with LU and it sold a day later as a Novel Use.
  10. PAYMENT

    Tends to hit the account between 4th & 6th.
  11. Best tool for the Job

    My favourite lens is the Canon F2.8 70-200mm IS. However, the one most often used is the F4 24-105mm IS.
  12. Make your choice....

    Thanks for selecting one of mine. :-)
  13. How was your July?

    Had two unexpected news sales drop in on 31st which was a nice surprise. Overall, many sales to UK papers at low rates. On a positive note, only 2 distributor sales (or maybe I should worry). Overall, both in sales and revenue very much in line with previous months.
