  1. Premium!! Yeah I agree and thought that John, if they had a tab upon upload to add some for Novel, we aren't as impressed with, that would be better, but possibly encouraging lower prices, when they seem pretty low anyway, but seems a better solution CC
  2. Hi John, Thanks & sorry I know it's been around for ages, I meant that the Alamy blurb says "for new & Innovating ways......." I didn't think I oped in, but it says 2011 when I joined, but I haven't looked at that part of the dashboard for a while, but thought I unticked most things as there used to be more! Interesting to know a dollar is the going rate! CC
  3. I think it's more of a down tick for the price, I nearly did, but thought better of it CC
  4. That is shocking, as is you can only opt out in April, I've just noticed I am "in", which I don't remember clicking, but it was a long time ago, but it does say 70% of us are in! For me there should be a minion sale of $9.99 or £10 would be better and if anyone wants less they can opt in to such schemes, or just go down the Microstock route! So out of interest though, has anyone had any big sales from this new marketing procedure? Our sales teams are always looking for new and innovative ways to evolve our business, whether that’s with the next big idea or a tailored so
  5. Exactly! Shocking to be arrested 6 hours later and have everything taken off you, without some kind of evidence, rather than what exactly? Seems to me to be symptomatic of this Government consistent lies and covering up the truth Chris
  6. As Spacecadet says, then wait 24 hours or so, as a new contributor for them to appear onsale, depending on updates
  7. 4 for me, all low $$ 2 on BBC website, one in the Mail and one personal copy of a couple of Cherry Pickers being used by camera crews, I did think I should get a print framed and offer the option on a POD site!😀 ,
  8. same for me, Alamy does my DACS 28 August 2020 Other income ASCRL payment 2020 3.62
  9. Yeah being used to a DSLR (or SLR back in the old days), Autofocus on a compact can be annoying and hit and miss, but it isn't the same camera, best to remember the image quality is very good, it's unobtrusive and although it has it's limitations, you will be able to take images you probably wouldn't take and also when you didn't expect to take them. Like any camera there is a learning curve. CC
  10. Everything is now back for me, couldn't get onto anything yesterday. I tried in the morning and until I went to bed, just the "try again in a few minutes" message, couldn't get on the Forum either, same issue, same period All good now CC
  11. As Avpics says, mine is always there in the metadata, maybe it's getting stripped out, depending on software, I always use Lightroom Chris
  12. As I said, I wouldn't because there doesn't seem to be that much advantage, for the price, but I'm not using the later versions, others will know the answer or have a better opinion If there was a slightly higher price than the mk 3 that had 24-120 equivalent, I'd consider that when mine bites the dust, but the rises in price are too much for me or if my sales of Sony photos went through the roof, however. I feel it is still a point and shoot, a very good point and shoot, but doesn't compare to my Nikons, but you can take it anywhere, be less obtrusive and I've not had anyone quest
  13. Ha ha it was at the top of the threads with comments, but I see others posted before me and I didn't spot that, so that's my excuse, Thanks👍👍 Chris
  14. My last 7 sales have all been 2013 2014 2015 & 2016 a couple from 12 & 16, the last sale was an image from 2016 that I uploaded a week or so ago, it sold a week later, but I have hardly uploaded for a couple of years. My last 9 zooms, all in the last month, 8 are from 2018 & 1 is from 2013. As my last sale example shows, if somebody wants a certain image and there aren't that many on Alamy, it might sell, if you are trying to sell a photo of the Eiffel Tower, then you probably won't do it, but with your butterflies keyword and correctly captioned, you will s
  15. I've got the Mk3, I found the deal with the Sony Case & grip from a supplier, was well worth buying. I do use mine on my bike and carry it around my neck with the case, rather than in a possible dusty pocket, you do need the wrist strap, but I find the grip helps when grabbing one handed and doesn't make it as slippy in general, if I bought another I'd buy a grip and case for sure . Others would testify to the benefits of the more expensive version, but as a point and shoot that you can grab extra photos, when not out taking "real photographs", it does the job and of course the s
