  1. If you want to sell pictures of flowers/vegetables you do need to do a bit more research 2C8JBJA Red flowers hanging from a branch This is a fuchsia but that will not help a great deal you really need the species and if applicable the cultivar, Applies to most of your flower pictures. 2C8JBWY Fresh green runner beans growing from the stalk Do not look like runner beans to me, not 100% certain but these look like radish pods. I would also avoid offering the same pictures on Alamy and a microstock site.
  2. Noticed your picture Marigold Tagetes flower bud - Image ID: 2C16DG9 I am afraid that flowers can get a little confusing,there are two species often called marigold, what you have here is a Calendula probably calendula officinalis, not a Tagetes. This is commonly known as the Common marigold Pot marigold or English marigold plus a few other names. It is part of the daisy family and probably originated in Europe The Tagetes species, most common ones the French marigold and African marigold are the ones related to sunflowers and originating in Mexico.
  3. See what you mean about the indents; definitely suggests moyesii.
  4. I would guess at Rosa rugosa, possibly rubra
  5. I would say Anemone coronaria De Caen Group Possibly one of the named cultivars but not one I recognise. Might be "Sylphide" All the same colour does suggest may be a named cultivar.
  6. For plant names whenever possible I use "Find a plant" on the RHS website.... https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/search-form This gives Lavandula stoechas 'Papillon' as being a synonym for Lavandula pedunculata subsp. pedunculata As I understand it this is a name used in the past that is now no longer seen as correct. Regarding the Campanulas there are hundreds of species of these and hundreds of cultivars, the RHS has 2344 results for Campanula and they cover a wide range of plant and flower size and form. Also there are some plants that look like Campanula but are a different species.
  7. Regarding your plant images you do need to improve the captions and keywords. Not just to add more detail - scientific name, cultivar name etc but also to remove the "poetic" bits. Also some are named wrongly. eg. White Peace Lily Perfection - Image ID: R2R1X3 This is a Zantedeschia common name Arum lily Amaryllis Love - Image ID: TAR72N This is actually a Hippeastrum but would also include Amaryllis as a common name. PUre white bulb flower open close up stamen - Image ID: R20MG7 Probably Hymenocallis × festalis BOLD COLOR FUSCHIA BLOOMING WITH GREENERY HANGING - Image ID: C52DPW Wrong spelling for Fuchsia Impatiens, flowers bright colors, pink, purple, etc - Image ID: B89JF4 No idea what you have done to the colours but does not look like Impatiens to me. wild purple flower fresh in spring time with greenery - Image ID: B636Y8 Looks like a Tradescantia to me Pure white lily flowers in full bloom spring time - Image ID: K9DXPR Has keywords blooming tree flower,lace leaf tree,pink white bloom,southern tree,thistle
  8. According to your wife you spend ages looking at the pictures in magazines in shops and keep tilting your head to read the picture credits printed sideways in the margins.
  9. AAAXCE Narcissus Slim Whitman Country: ThailandUsage: Editorial, One time use in a Museum Display, any size, Thailand only, for 15 yearsMedia: Museum display (single use)Industry sector: General business servicesImage Size: Any size Can't help but wonder why a museum in Thailand would want a picture of a daffodil. Was going to include the picture as many do here but could not work out how to do it.
  10. Have asked Alamy how they view POD sites. They have replied that they are still finalising details and will let me know.
  11. If it is the "Alamy distribution commission" of 70% shown in "The Contributor contract" this is the amount that gets deducted before you are paid; your share is the remaining 30%. Chris
  12. Should there be a picture to go with this or am I missing something? Chris
  13. Regarding RF images (and also RM images sold as RF in all but name) do Alamy have better details of usage than the photographer? They may well have details of first usage but what about any subsequent use? I spotted one of mine yesterday that was appearing for the fourth time, is Alamy checking for this or being notified? To be fair I probably have an easier job spotting my uses as at least 90% of UK magazine publications appear in one of only about half a dozen magazines.
  14. I have not seen anything regarding Alamy claiming on the Dutch scheme, though that might be because I have not authorised Alamy to make any claims on my behalf. DACS have advised that "....we will be entering a German PLR scheme next year,"
