  1. i would assume Alamy are making payments via a finacial service like a bank, who would then choose their method of payment. As my day job in City IT Consultancy all the Banks i've come across have Swift links so they could make the change fairly easily interally and the customers would not notice.
  2. It's harder to find mine there - as my name is the same as a politician (Lib Dem) who turns up first. If I put in Stephen Lloyd Photography I find a lot. However, there's no "age" correlation in the selection.
  3. A sample of 55 voters on Alamy is not significant statistically - I doubt even Cambridge Analytica would use the data. Take it back, they'd find a way to use and sell it. Which is why I did not give information away! and there was no "what's a sale" option.
  4. not sure what you mean by eps as it's not an acronym i use. What happened in the end?
  5. Mark Chamberlain - legacy of my student days in the Potteries. he had a few years at Vale late 70s and early 80s (where he played against my boys) before going to Stoke where he didn't - we were too low back then. Very fast, direct winger. Played in the same Stoke squad as Peter Fox, Sammy Mcilroy, the very very tall Brendan O'Callaghan who scored inside 12 seconds of his debut with his first touch (headed in a corner), Paul Bracewell, Mickey Thomas, a good side by local standards but a bit less fun than a few years earlier. And a lot more than now! He also played for England. Bet you really did not want to remember them!
  6. Makes me feel old as I watched Alex's dad play at both Stoke and Port Vale. Sadly Alex did score against us at Wembley back in 2014 (me, bitter, yes)
  7. So far in my life I've been all ages from 1 minutes (and crying) to 61 and a bit, still crying but that's down to my football team more than anything else. So that covers a lot of ages:)
  8. remember when looking at the RAM ,what speed is it? DDR4/DDR3? What can the board take? I used to do all my own builds but less so now. Solid states are good - but higher capacity comes at a price. If using windows it can mean a reinstall and reconfigure if you don't want Win10 to try to send everything, including some app files, to the Windows Drive option. After a recent crash I rebuilt and speed only came back after I'd made windows do what I wanted and not what MS did.
  9. I suggest you look at Alamy measures, see what keywords are being searched. You can see "Mustela putoriuss" there for Latin names and "zvartnots" also "zurich schipfe" for local names. I am not suggesting put bateau in alongside boat, but proper names do put in.
  10. There is a good clue about keywords and search criteria in there. I recommend making sure your images have the words so they can be found
  11. Imagine sitting at home, drink in hand, watching a new sports series on Amazon Prime called "Back Of the Net". During a segment where Harry Redknapp (he of his dog Rosie fame) is sat telling a true story to the camera, illustrated by a number of pictures on screen. Whoa! I recognise that pic, freeze, rewind and pause to see one of my Alamy images in glorious not 4K, not HDR, not Dolby Vision or HDR10+, but still on TV. Check my sales - nothing there. Now I understand delays in payments etc so this is now one series I will watch. The pic was used to illustrate Sheffield Wednesday FC - GEB3RE
  12. I can verify that my garden frequently gets cat releases.
  13. Two things on this from me, one bothers me, the other I've not seen or may have missed. First is the size - I've got big hands. My D810 and drive work well for me - as did the predecessors D700 and drive, F5, F90 and drive etc..... My wife has a D5100 and I find it small for me - so nice as the Z's may be, perhaps we Neanderthals need help:) Second one is form factor. I see the adaptor for old lenses, but does that move the lens further away? Are we getting any change in focal length 9in effect) like using an FX lens on a DX body? The adaptor looks a bit long. As said, it may have been covered by Nikon, but if so I missed it.
  14. And I'm grateful for the 28 cents I suppose, as it's a 28% hike on the basic (a Roberto Martinez-esque positive view). That's probably the lowest return I've had on any image and a bit demoralising as it is sold as "Worldwide" "travel and tourism" "NU Editorial website and app multiple use" - the timescale is "In perpetuity". The image is BR2M17 - nothing special ,just a record shot of a sign post for a famous and madly eccentric store in Singapore that sells everything from tin tacks to tractors. Can anyone tell me what "NU Editorial website" actually means?
