    Thanks John .... the 'Maya" or "Black Eyed Susan" is the closest I can find ... the only mismatch is they appear to have fine bristles on the stems whereas the ones I have images of, don't !!

  12. Commission change - James West comments

    Fair enough ! Then you remember the effort it used to take to grow our portfolios with Alamy ! It is up to us to cull if we think it is needed, not to have it enforced upon us arbitrarily !
  13. Commission change - James West comments

    Sorry Bob.... but, NO !! Many contributors here were with Alamy years before you joined and went through the lengthy process of scanning negs and slides, hours retouching and submitting TIFF files on disc .... do you really expect contributors, myself included, to ditch 10% of those images, many of which still licence? Sure, they may not look as good as they would if processed using modern up to date software but culling these is not really the answer in my opinion. Alamy used to have a USP of having a collection that contained images that, in the main, could not be found anywhere else ... that's what drew the clients. For reasons best known to Alamy, they ditched that USP and started to import collections from other agencies ... resulting in the clients seeing repeats of the same images that had already been seen on numerous other agencies ... thus Alamy joined the race to the bottom. I think that if any culling needs to be done, it is the removal of these collections that have not even been through QC .... Alamy needs to start looking back at what made it so successful in the earlier years.... including offering a fair split of the fees obtained. Ditching PU would also be a good move ! Just my personal thoughts ....
  14. Seems like a good opportunity !

    Almost certainly !!
