  1. Just watched this and it's made my day. Thanks for posting this Paulette. 😃
  2. Welcome Kris. You have a lot of work ahead so wishing you well in developing your images collection.
  3. You've been given lots of good advice here. If it's any consolation I've seen a marked increase in my views and zooms since the start of the year but, following a couple of sales in January, nothing so far for February. Seems I may be heading for a "duck" this month. Wishing you good luck going forward.
  4. I have had some success with holiday pictures so I still upload them, but I find my London stuff outsells everything else.
  5. That must have been a pain. Do you know what went wrong and was it very expensive to get the sensor replaced?
  6. Wet cleaned the sensors in both my Nikon bodies. All spotless now so hopefully no more cloning out dust spots for a while.
  7. Good to let off a bit of steam, I share your frustration. At the beginning of 2019 I made the decision that I would retire at the Easter with pretty much the same plan as you; to devote more time to my photography and boost my Alamy collection. I do take the camera out when I go for my daily walk but I too am finding picture options dwindling. Hopefully better times are on the way. Anyway, this topic is about good things so I guess I may have gone a little off-beam in that regard, apologies to all. Good thing is that having retired I no longer have to get up at 4:30 a.m. on cold wint
  8. If you have some QC failed images in a submission it is normal for Alamy to reject the entire submission. Read the Alamy guidance for contributors and make sure you thoroughly check all your pictures before uploading. My maxim for any image I'm not entirely sure about is - if in doubt, leave it out.
  9. The UK have now vaccinated over 10 million people as of today. Had my first jab yesterday and, contrary to what the anti-vax brigade would have you believe, I haven't died, turned green or grown two heads. A small step forward and I'm looking forward to the day when I once again have the confidence and freedom to travel into London again which is my favourite photographic stomping ground.
  10. Thought I was heading for a duck this month, but this just came in. PU, low $$, but welcome anyway.
  11. Welcome Dave. Wishing you the best and future success as you build your Alamy portfolio.
  12. Welcome John. +1 to what both Steve F and Michael have said. You need to expand your captions to be better descriptive of your images. Accuracy is very important too; check your image HN9AN8 which is a Singer sewing machine. Keep uploading and put in the 'slog' with keywords and captions. Good luck.
  13. I've resisted for a long time, but in the vain hope of getting a bit of a sales boost I just made all my images available for PU! Mistake maybe????
  14. Both low $$, but more or less wiped out by a refund against an image sold in June!!! Country: Worldwide Usage: Presentation or newsletters, Use in a presentation/talk (eg,Powerpoint and Keynote) or in an editorial newsletter. Start: 15 December 2020 End: 15 December 2025
