  1. My surname starts with C.....Still waiting Phil Crean
  2. As seen in another topic, New Manage Images is out for some contributors... When will the rest of us have access to it? Thanks, Phil
  3. Has everyone except me got this???? Tried logging out & in again in case that was an issue, but am still on the old system..... Phil
  4. No restrictions shown on the individual image pages. I do recall Alamy once commenting that some images are not available in certain regions, so they just don't show up in a search originating in that region...could be a blanket restriction set for a particular contributor/agency as opposed to individual image restrictions...maybe? Phil
  5. dpa is a german agency so maybe they restrict Alamy from selling their own images in the German market... Phil
  6. A few friendly geezers here! All at Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Phil
  7. It depends on what the main subject of the photograph is. If a building is the obvious main subject of a photograph then you would need a property release. But if it's just one of many buildings that are in a cityscape type shot like the one that you reference, then releases for the individual buildings aren't required. That has been my understanding too but on checking Alamy's guidelines I see that they say "If there’s recognisable property in your image you’ll need a property release in order to sell as RF or for commercial use." This implies that even broad city scenes may require multiple property releases. And of course, in many cases, a release may be required from other interested parties - the Eiffel Tower at night being just one example. Though I note that another big agency is happy for unreleased night shots of the Eiffel Tower to be sold RF as long as it's not the main focus of the composition. But where does that leave you if the client crops the image to feature the Eiffel Tower? I believe the onus to obtain a release should be on the end user and not the photographer. Photographers have absolutely no control over how their pictures are cropped and are not in a position to say whether a release is *needed*. Note too that the requirement for property releases is not restricted to buildings This is what Alamy says "Property is not just limited to buildings, it’s anything identifiable that’s copyrighted/trademarked e.g. logos and branded items." I believe this is the case.... The publisher is the one ultimately responsible for what they have published, in my opinion. As long as we photographers are honest in what we claim to have in releases then how can we be held responsible for others actions? Phil
  8. Maybe it's people with 3D printers thinking they can print the object Phil
  9. And remove the offending images from sale! Phil
  10. OK Chuck...Thanks for your reply. I too used lots of Fujichrome in the 80's & 90's, loved it! Am now using a XT1, which is pretty good for travel and to always have a camera with me, but now after 2 years use it's showing a lot more wear & tear than I would expect. Am considering sending it in for an overhaul, and to have the outer rubber/plastic bits replaced as they are peeling and coming loose. Hope their European service is better than your experience in the USA. Phil
  11. Behind the farmer.... Behind the Ice cream seller... Behind the wheel... Phil
  12. He can have the beach but Teide - no way . They're all mine.... But I share... Phil Oh it's yours then as long as you're happily taking the blame when it erupts And your beach is flooded. Allan Have seen the beach flooded, by torrential rainfall, swept cars into the sea But, am still waiting for the mountain to erupt Phil

  14. Last minute dash! Palm on my beach Minimalist sapling. Tree on my mountain Phil
  15. We're not allowed to see that here. Can you itemise the photographs with credits, aor at least copy and paste? I may have something in there. Rest of the photos are not Alamy...Only Peter Widmans. Phil
  16. The Sun, Contributor: Jack Malipan Travel Photography Article about a similarly named mountain in Lanzarote using a photo from Tenerife...Quality journalism strikes again! Phil
  17. Thanks Phil. I can see that page giving the choice using your link, but unfortunately clicking on the old version still redirects to "My Alamy" for me. Geoff. Seems like only Alamy tech boffins can answer why it works for some and not others, regardless of how recently they have used it. Phil
  18. Here's the URL I get from clicking on Manage your images button on my dashboard: http://www.alamy.com/manageimages-redirect.asp Then I just click on whichever version I want. Phil
  19. Well, Alamy calls it the "new version," but it has been around for several years. Interesting. I thought maybe you were seeing the upcoming new tools and I'd missed the announcement. Well the "flash" version works for me at the moment after a quick check. I wasn't aware the old version was still available. Is that the old non-flash method? Geoff. Wishful thinking. Yes, that's the old non-flash version. I still find it useful sometimes. AFAIK my flash player is up-to-date, but I'll check to make sure. Adobe usually nags me mercilessly if it isn't. It's still only available if you use it regularly. If you don't use it for a few months it disappears. Definitely a case of use it or lose it! John. Not true for me! I haven't used the old version for more than a year...just went to it and it's all there just as it used to be! Phil Right, I will have to try it again! One question though, if you click on manage images it just goes to the new version. How do you get to the old version? When I click on Manage Images a new window opens giving me both options, then I choose .... Phil
