  1. I'm uploading more than ever ... that might be because I finally replaced my stolen camera and can now go out and shoot. I've been shooting stock (point and shoot) mostly but I do want to get back into my fine art work and maybe start a portrait business. Not sure.
  2. Hi Aurora: I only looked at a couple of pages of your images - many could be improved in editing by lightening up the exposure a notch, lessening the contrast, and opening up the shadows. I don't know which photo image editor you are using, as I use photoshop, but with such strong contrast you are losing a lot of details in the shadows. I have the same issues with many of my images, and have really been working on the editing process.
  3. Not all of my work is on Alamy as a lot of my travel images were taken with "lesser" cameras that were unacceptable for Alamy submissions. You can see more of my editorial images on IMAGES@ARTIST-AT-LARGE which is my own editorial stock site. Good luck Lorenzo!
  4. You live in Italy! You have some nice images, keep shooting. Work on your photoshop/editing skills. When shooting a building or location, it's ok to go for the wide shot, but don't forget to take tighter shots and detail shots - especially if you are shooting churches with a lot of art or details inside. When tagging, make sure you name the name/s of the buildings, the street, the location, the city, the province, along with architectural style (romanesque, gothic, modern, etc), the architect is he is famous, etc, etc in your tags. And remember that Alamy is an Engli
  5. 2 sales of the same image to the same publisher for $9.99 total. I guess that's the 'Presentation and Newsletter' category. I'm expecting one of them to disappear. But maybe not.
  6. How does one opt out of Personal Use? I've opted out of Novel Use, but I don't see a way to opt out of PU.
  7. I've been getting Upload Error messages, but I thought it was more on my end with the wifi connection I was using. I haven't had any problems in the past week - as I'm on a different network right now.
  8. I keep all of my raw, tifs, and jpgs. Most of them now live on two external hard drives, but keeping them gives me easy access if I want to use them for my own web site content, or someone makes a request and I don't have to open up photoshop to make it.
  9. I use A2 Hosting with my own WordPress installs using Imagely Themes and NextGen Pro for image management.
  10. I work on both Apple and Windows and of the two evils, I prefer Windows. Mostly because it fits my budget. I currently have a Lenovo Flex pad something or other - 15? It works fine although I have to keep making room for new images. I've been thinking of doing more film footage and thinking that my next laptop might be a gaming one. Even when I bought the Lenovo, I looked at the Alienware and thought it might be overkill, but I could use the graphics upgrade. I would go for the Alienware if you can afford it and if you don't have to carry it around all of the time. They are a bit
  11. I'm on track to equal last year (although 2016 was my best year).
  12. One little sale for $12 - an image that has sold multiple times.
  13. Oh, I thought maybe the reason for the contract changes in what we are paid (or not paid) has come to light, But maybe not. I'm not awake yet and thinking clearly.
  14. I've just started shooting small video clips and was going to research Pond5 - do Alamy and Pond5 have a distribution relationship or did Alamy purchase Pond5?
