  1. As proof that the work is there if you get after it ... my best year ever on Alamy Sales up by just over 73% and revenue by almost 96% .... now for the 2020s PS: happy New Year everyone
  2. It will be worth the effort ... makes colection, records all sales, helps keywording etc does all you can ask for Been using it since started on Alamy, could not see me without it
  3. Or simply use Alamy Bridge which gives all this and more in linking LightRoom and Alamy ... https://www.lightroom-plugins.com/AlamyIndex.php
  4. My 10 pence for what it is worth ... Whatever system, drives or technology you use, make sure it passes the 3 - 2 - 1 test 3 - Copies of all data 2 - Copies stored on different drives 1 - Copy stored off-site It has worked for me for the past decade, or more, in which time it has never failed me as I have changed external and internal drives The current system, a dedicated data drive in the PC - this backs up to an external drive every 60 minutes - every four hours it backs up to a second external drive - plus a continual back up to a cloud storage site So 3 copies of data, 2 copies stored on different drives and the cloud storage off-site
  5. 1 - 3 sales per month with a collection of just over 4,0000 ...... you are doing about the average - in my experience

  8. Missed it again .............. and drove past Cambridge about 1:30 on my way back. Maybe next time ...
  9. LR in my understanding only 'keeps' 1:1 preview for a period of time to prevent the files from becoming massive and then issues with backing up. It is not unusual to have to rebuild previews on older collections.
  10. Work harder with the Nikon which is far more versatile to make enough for the drone then you will have both ...
  11. I use much less than in the film era ... the software can lift that shadow detail But for news of people, which is occasionally, it helps is well balanced
  12. But that is back up ... a replica of your working drive or that is my take on it and has been for years I refer as archive the ability to store secure files I may, or may not, need in the future that is not every day working files. Have a look at the google drive, which I use for this function ... acts like an external drive on the desktop and provided you set up correctly my understanding is it retains all files. Hope that helps
