  1. Back on this old chestnut but I think that you don't separate them with commas, rather than add quotes e.g. white bread,butter,beans on toast,

  3. I think that some people are being a bit harsh with Adobe - they sorted the problem out in pretty short order. When you look at some of the horrors that have been in Microsoft products (including Windows itself) that have gone unresolved for prolonged periods, an error slipping through in a complex application like PS and being resolved very soon after first being reported is just one of those things you have to accept... As with all software updates, it's often better to let someone else be the guinea pig. Ultimately there is a valuable lesson here: there is no substitute for good, regular b
  4. You say that but maybe someone wants to show that the château hasn't changed since the 70s? Do you mead the 1570s? OK... maybe a French château was not the best example but you know what I mean.

  6. Something to do with the number of words as well - "Lake Clark National" works, to some extent (69 images) but "Lake Clark National Park" only produces 4... "Lake Clark" produces 2,598. Totally impossible for buyers to know what is going on! That's got to be some bizarre search logic. However, as we've said in many other threads, it's a tough one to crack!
  7. Without giving away trade secrets you can't leave the first part of that comment at that... or do you live somewhere ridiculously cheap? Well... the same flat would cost a lot more if I was in London or Tokyo. It was a simple photo of myself. But safe, no trade marks, MR'd, copy space, could be a dps, could be a folder in three. It sold through the big agency. They do have a filter where you can look up by photographer... but I do have a few selfies there. By the way... there is demand for all types. One of my most successful colleagues on the other side of the camera is no George Cloo

  9. No iPh Why? You still have time to take some shots. :-) TokyoM1ke only takes Mono. Allan Thanks Allan - but more to the point, I don't own a colour camera! iPhone and stockimo images? Kumar No iPhone either... Andorid. ;(

  11. Excluded from this month's competition - Devastated! Had to happen at some point... Good luck everyone (else)
  12. Me I would say for those times that you need jpeg, shoot jpeg. Otherwise shoot raw (+jpeg if you wish). It's all about quality and choice really. Raw converters have improved massively over the years. Adobe's Process 2012 is a big improvement on their 2010 which is way better than their 2003. If you really know that you are never going to want to reinterpret an image, change the white balance (using the camera WB is akin to always using an automatic camera exposure setting with default metering), convert to monochrome (16-bit is essential and jpeg is 8 bit only), rescue a very under or over-ex
  13. Sorry if I have misunderstood but I thought that you did need commas unless you wanted linked keywords. e.g. you want "Westminster Abbey" and "church" so you put the keywords in as: Westminster Abbey,church Then a searcher can search on any of: Westminster, Westminster Abbey, Abbey, church. I understood that if you don't put commas in then you miss the compound search terms after the third(?) word. This seems to go around and around - I'm never certain that I've nailed it.
  14. My first find for this thread: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20160205-when-ads-go-too-far A2N15Y David Crossland
  15. Great idea. I put my images up just after the thread opened, thinking that I was happy with them but then the competition just got better and better... That has to have been one of the best sets of challenge entries that I have seen (on topic and the images themselves). In the last eight there isn't a picture that I wouldn't vote for if it hadn't been for the other seven! To pick just one, I just loved the colours and atmosphere in this... you can almost feel the cold of the ice.
  16. Bit of an object lesson for everyone, following the Alamy comment, to be more self critical... check, check and check again against all of the criteria and not assume that it's a QC error. Not trying to preach, just highlight the risk of not looking deeply enough - reminder to self as well!
  17. I take it you've seen the advice in the other threads to take four photographs (well, you need 2 now) without particular regard for subject but just to make sure you hit the technical threshold? Don't take any risks. Of course you'll have to keep the standard up in future to continue passing QC. And I don't think that it is inevitable that you fail with your test images - you just need to read through the requirements and check over the images very carefully, any doubts, then don't submit - as pretty much everyone else on Alamy does for every image.
  18. I would recommend that if you are going to do anything about this you take care as any public comment by you can prejudice your position. Not hard to find on the Alamy forum either! I'd report to MS and let them get on with it... Keep a copy (screen shots etc.) of the page in case there are any shenanigans.
  19. But how may people would read the article without a photograph?
  20. I think that the rule is that if you can work out who the person is from clothing or another distinctive feature then you need a release. To cover yourself, just list it as containing lots of people without a release and leave it to the user to decide whether they need a release. Obviously you can't make it RF if that's the case.
  21. In general rights here are less restrictive than in England, but I don't have specifics for this case. In trying to find specific information about Glasgow Central Station, from where most of my deletions came, I haven't found anything in the general t&d, but they do a pay-for backscenes tour and say this: "2.4 Photography will be permitted on the Tour at the discretion of the Tour Guide. Users will be informed, prior to starting the tour, of when and where photography is permitted in Glasgow Central Station. Users are required to confirm with the Tour Guide, if they are in any doubt, as
  22. One of mine without any problem: Had not thought of actually keywording it with "lens flare"...
  23. Maybe you should appeal those to Alamy then and see what happens? At least then you'd know how much to complain about.
