  1. Thanks, I'll look for the thread.  I believe that I have 2 glitches that are independent.  The first one relates to the iPhone and the app not showing all photos.  I believe that this is related to the use of iCloud Photo Library to share the photos between my devices, the app only shows some of them which is likely an issue with how iCloud Photo Libraries transfers/stores files.  The work around is to go into photos on the iPhone select the missing photos, chose to share them using iCloud Photo Sharing, but then cancel before setting up.  They then appear in the Stockimo app.

     

    The second issue is not seeing any thumbnails in the app when trying to upload.  The photos are there as if you click on the blank screen then they appear for upload.  I'll add my name to the number of users affected with Alamy and hopefully they'll sort it in the next version.


  2. I have a similar problem on an iPad Pro with the folders showing no images.  I use my ipad for uploading as it's easier to keyword on a larger device, all the photos are taken on an iPhone.  I'm even finding the app clunky on the iPhone recently, for example, when I try and upload from my photostream album it doesn't show the same photos as when you look at the photostram album in the photos app. I'm sure it'll all work out with a few upgrades!

    Just got my iPhone 6S Plus today. I bought a temporary case at the Dollar Store, yes for $1. It's not that bad. It is made of clear soft gel. it's not a hard plastic case. It makes it have a nice non-slip grip. It fits really well even though it says it is for a 6 Plus, not 6S Plus. It is called a TechFit TPU Protective Case with drop protection technology "designed to absorb shock and protect your smartphone from scratches, scuffs and dents while providing excellent grip."

     

    Let me know if anyone finds a nice case they recommend. Meanwhile, I'm pretty happy with my $1 bargain for now. But I'll check out the UAG, Martin. Thanks for the tip!

    Lisa, I just went with the Apple silicon case for my 6S Plus.  It doesn't add much bulk or weight but most importantly adds grip.  So far happy with the phone and had my first Stockimo photo accepted and it also made the Grid of Greatness.

    Hey Adrian, just spotted your photo on the first page of the Stockimo collection. One of mine made it too. High five.

    Thanks Lisa, it's always nice to see.  I took the photo on a 500px photowalk the other week and it made it to their 'top 50 photos' article on their blog which meant it's had about 30,000 views on 500px. My iphone 6S plus gave my D800 a run for its money that day!

  5. Betty, it feels like we're in a parallel universe.  I have my old (v. old) wacom tablet next to me and I never got on with it.  For some reason I also bought a Intuos Pro M recently. I have to say that with a bit of effort, particularly setting the programmable buttons, I'm getting there and am more comfortable with it.  I have to say at the moment I'm still a bit quicker with a mouse, but on a lot of actions I'm increasingly more accurate with the tablet.  I guess after 20 years of using a mouse it's going to be more habitual so I'm going to hang in there with the tablet and keep working with it.

     

    Hope you're getting there also ;-)

    I shoot using ProCamera rather than the native camera app on my iPhone 5S as it allows more functionality and you can chose whether you save them as TIFF or jpeg. I then use Snapseed usually on my iPad to edit and upload.  Whichever format you seem to save with from ProCamera if you manipulate in SnapSeed then it saves out as jpeg in smaller files though.

    Adrian, thanks for the tip. I bought ProCamera after reading your post. All I've done with it is shoot a couple of pictures, but I can see the quality has gone up a couple of notches. Now if I can figure out the "functionality" of which you speak..... :)

     

    Excellent Betty, glad you're getting to grips with ProCamera.  Much of the additional functionality that I use is just the ability to adjust the shutter, speed, aperture, etc.. and the ability to expose and focus on different places in the shot.  Some of the fun of the Stockimo vs. traditional is seeing what new apps can add to the end result.  Ultimately it's a smart move by Alamy as as people become more and more used to producing instagram'd/filtered images the market will likely grow, and I even sold my first Stockimo image this week which was a bonus!


  7. Hi there,

     

    Are there any plans to provide stats for stockimo portfolios and images in the same way as the main collection either through the app, through My Alamy or both (even better)?

     

    I stumbled on one of my stockimo images in the 'customer likes' the other day so I know they're appearing in searches ;-)

  8. What impresses me about these forums is that people are happy to help in a constructive manner.  Just because your new to Alamy doesn't mean that you're new to photography and I've often noticed a slight tendency to patronise new entrants.

     

    It's also great to come to a forum where it's positive.  There's no doubt that the industry is undergoing a significant re-balancing and there are of course some winners and losers, but this is making a lot of other forums agency bashing arenas.  I love the Stockimo app and feel it's great the way that Alamy is grabbing the future with both hands whilst not forgetting the past.  I find these forums accepting of new digital techniques which is more than can be said of some others sadly.

     

    Still, aspiring to get some decent outcomes from my minute portfolio :D
