  1. Sold today. Similar thoughts to Paulette's image when putting these up. Sometimes you just have to distance yourself from the subject.
  2. "images offline"

    Much like the email I received telling me I'd made a $400 sale, and other contributors received similar quoting their larger sales. Turns out it was referring to one from around three months previously, and I'd wasted a couple of days of constantly updating my report excitedly expecting to see it come in!
  3. News upload broken?

    Showing now: https://www.alamy.com/news/newsresults.aspx#BHM=foo%3Dbar%26qt%3D%26pn%3D1%26ps%3D120%26aoa%3D1%26news%3D%26sports%3D%26entmt%3D%26Videos%3D%26bb%3D1%26md%3DOL6791405%26dt%3D%26gid%3D{462719B9-8DE2-4DB4-9781-F1CA59661257}%26destxml%3D%26imglst%3D%26orderby%3DDT%26newsseq%3D%26userid%3D{0503A7C2-2FA0-4209-A661-786500548C12}%26rand%3D1529362593089
  4. Order images by chronological date taken

    If that's the purpose of your enquiry, you could search for a common word linking those images which would bring them all together for you to work with.
  5. Helpful AIM tip

    First time I've noticed it, but I've just had the message that I've exceeded the number of supertags on one or more of the selected images but with the addition of a helpful continuation of the message 'Try removing Alamy refs......from selection', and a button [Remove] which does it for you.
  6. Same here, and they reassure me that I wouldn't be held responsible for any fallout. Therefore it's really a 'no brainer'; that box remains empty.
  7. Alamy Measures broken?

    No. It would have to happen after I'd done a ton of work too
  8. Alamy Measures broken?

    No confusion, I just didn't wish to start another thread on a similar topic - something which has occurred frequently recently. It's one thing not using the search button, but having two or three titles on the same subject within a single page view (Live News workflow, discoverability, log-in issues to name but a few) are just messy, IMHO.
  9. Alamy Measures broken?

    Given the log-in issues yesterday as well, I assume they're fiddling again. Hopefully with a purpose
  10. Alamy Measures broken?

    Not wishing to start a new thread on a similar topic, I'd like to note that my database hasn't updated yet today (as at 15:00 UK time) for the works I'd saved yesterday. Is that the same for all? Thank you
  11. Have you found any Alamy images in June 2018?

    Many thanks Iain. Lapsed Live News.
  12. News photographic ethics

    I thought they always were just checking it wasn't chocolate
  13. Live News workflow

    I also like to see them appear on the News Feed, and to confirm that the headings and captions etc have carried over through the wires correctly. Slightly OT, but I attended an event on Sunday after which I uploaded three batches of images beginning at around 16:00. They still weren't showing by 18:00 and a phone call to Alamy's news number wasn't very helpful. They did then appear shortly afterwards but that's a lot of time to lose especially at that time of day when I'd assume most dailies are being put to bed. Again, a little off topic, but in London on Saturday it was pretty hot for stories and all the photographers I spoke to were struggling to get a signal to upload anything. Sometimes you can feel that everything's against you when working on 'live' stuff in such a competitive field.
  14. Can't log in to Alamy site

    Likewise. Surely that should be an easy fix if one link works?
  15. My standards are falling
