  1. Can't say I've found a subject I avoid, more situations. If someone specifically makes it clear they don't want to be photographed then I respect their wishes.
  2. Thanks Paulette, Why didn't I think of that???? Google strikes again And, yes it is beautiful Phil
  3. Been on the Adobe site but can't find anywhere to update even when logged in! Guess I'll wait and see what happens in the next week. Phil
  4. Confused.com I'm on Lightroom 5.3, when I click on "Check for updates" under the Help menu it says I'm up to date. Has the 5.4 been released everywhere yet? And, if so why is it telling me I'm up to date? Phil
  5. My pleasure Keith, I suspect that in this game you make your own luck. Mail Online 7th DY54AR Tenereife. 7th April, 2014. The beach where two British women drowned at Playa Las Galgas in Playa Paraiso, a resort in the south of Tenerife. The women - Uma Ramalingam and Barathi Ruvikumar - went into the sea to rescue their two children who were in difficulties. The beach that the accident occurred at is called Playa Las Galgas in the resort of Playa Paraiso (Paradise Beach) in Adeje, Tenerife.

  6. Oooops! Sorry about that Phil, should have built a self destruct after 24hrs into the post Phil
  7. Strange name for a golfer. Allan
  8. 1) Go to Alamy home page. 2) Click three times on right facing arrow at bottom right of page. 3) Spot the golfer!!!! Phil
  9. Having read the piece and looked at the images it seems possible that it is a straight shot in difficult conditions. However is it a competition winner on such a level? I wouldn't have chosen it Phil
  10. Person in the poster has probably signed a MR for the poster use, so as Jill says probably need a PR more than MR Phil
  11. Ed, I think this is not the link you meant to post!…..Takes me to gmail... Phil
  12. I've done similar and found that dropping all 3 was most stable. Have fun Phil
  13. Don't do much news but; sold some with Demotix/Corbis. So far none with Alamy news as news, but sales later as stock! Phil
  14. I still think you're slightly missing the point. All the fields except the description are searchable. The caption is simply a lower priority. To achieve what you want would require the caption to be not searchable at all, which is a totally separate issue. The search engine can't be expected to know that words in one searchable field are to be included and words in another searchable field are to be ignored completely. No amount of AI could do that. It assumes, quite rightly, that if you've put a word in a searchable field then you want it to be searchable. However, if it's in a lower priorit
  15. Diversity algorithm? Steve Maybe… Still I think it should be looked into and see if there is a better way. As Joseph said "I think that with what AI is capable of today in many fields of IT technology, correctly searching and prioritising words in two database fields ought to be a piece of cake." (My bold!) Phil

  17. But it isn't giving priority to the caption. The caption is a lower priority than all the keywords. If you want to include words that should not be searched at all then use the Description field. That's what it's there for. Alan Unfortunately proper captioning involves using words which have to be there to properly caption(as opposed to description) the photo, and if they are not in the keywords boxes then they should not be coming up in searches with a higher position in the search than photos which do have the words in the keyword boxes, and this is the problem… If the words in ca
  18. Sorry, but this seems perfectly reasonable to me. The caption is searchable, and the words group, walking and park appear in it. The caption should describe what's in the picture and nothing more. If there's no park in the picture it shouldn't be in the caption. The Description field is where ancillary information should be put, and that isn't searchable. Alan The caption is as it is because the image was submitted through the Alamy Live News route and the references to the park etc are there to set the context of the story as a news item. In both news and non-news stock pictures i
