  1. The pseudo is credited (if there's a credit at all...). And, yes, there are some daft pseudos in print... which may be another reason why it's just Alamy that's credited...
  2. Ah, yes... what to do with the "crap" pix. Thankfully, both my camera and photo software come with a very handy 'delete' button...
  3. Phones 'n' cameras (and techy stuff in general) seem to be grotesquely 'over-featured'. And does everything have to have a built-in camera?

  8. It's because alamy doesn't know how to build and manage a community. They don't understand the need for different member levels (which is a form of reward for contribution), access permissions, nor how to control membership and membership culture. They believe they have made improvements by showing links to images, but fail to stop simple registration (top right of this forum) to enable people like me to be back in the forum without a link to my images. They believe the only control needed is to push the "lock thread" button, and fail to "manage" the community in away that provides space for a
  9. It may be mildly cathartic to have a rant about prices, but, honestly, unless you joined Alamy last week, or have been living in a cave, the state of the stock photography business really shouldn't come as such a big surprise. For those who fail to keep up with what's happening, Mafeking has been relieved and Archduke Ferdinand has come to a sticky end...
  10. Guardian Online, July 29 Woman with head in hands, B98NKE, itanistock (Alamy credit only) London Olympic stadium, lit up at night, (Alamy credit only) Can’t find it...
  11. It's easy to get tied up in knots about all this... when the best approach is the simplest. Number of people (or parts of people): review original pic, at 100%, if necessary, and count 'em... No point in fretting about the impossibility of getting releases for, say, everyone in a football crowd. Just tick 'no model release' and sell RM...

  15. Me too. And I'd like the screen to explode with fireworks, and maybe some stirring music too. Maybe 'Money, Money, Money', by Abba... Agreed, except I'll take Pink Floyd's "Money." From the lyrics of Pink Floyd's Money: Get a good job with more pay... Hmm...

  17. That wasn't my point. Stock pix are generally priced by useage (size of published image, circulation of magazine, editorial or commercial, etc) not by the perceived quality of the image: great, good, OK, so-so. It's an important distinction, IMO...
  18. Nice picture, I agree... but the 'niceness' of an image, in terms of stock pricing, is simply irrelevant...
  19. This is by no means a rhetorical question... but how could you know which pictures won't sell (or, conversely, which pix will)? I take note of my sales, in choosing which subjects might be worth shooting. But, even after amassing 7,000+ pix here, I really can't guess which of my pix will sell next. A lot of my favourite pix haven't sold at all, while a few pix have sold many times. In short, if I was to cull my Alamy collection, I might be deleting pix which could sell next week. I wouldn't know where to start...
  20. Hi Christina... Assuming you've keyworded, and 'ticked all the boxes'... and saved... you'll see your pix go 'live' in 24 hours...
