  1. I didn't have many sales until I had 2000+ images. I'm now at nearly 6000 images and have regular monthly sales. Sales volume down a tad this year but revenue healthy.
  2. Amazing place and superb images 👍 I love (nearly) all architecture.
  3. Why not give the model a copy of an image you don't intend to use yourself?
  4. I might be there again for a couple of days early October with my wife but could probably get away for an hour or one evening
  5. That would be fine as this is a one-off 1954 motorcycle show guide. Most of the manufacturers have been out of business for a long now. Thanks everyone for your contibutions. I think I'll go ahead with them as No Release and Editorial only. John
  6. I have good quality images taken of adverts pages taken from a 1950s Show Magazine. I was thinking of entering them in Archive. Obviously, I would enter no releases and editorial only etc. Any thoughts on this? John
  7. Hi Edo One of my Beatles Statue pics has been used as the front cover on the Liverpool University Brochure without problem. Marked Editorial Only. The statue is shown in context with the Liver Building towering above them. Good payout too 🙂 John
  8. Hi MDM Edo is checking into one tomorrow I believe. Good value. John
  9. Shame there's no rooms at the Days Inn. It does get packed if there's an event on as it's near the Arena and conference centres. I always stay there but book in advance. There's a Travelodge just round the corner in The Strand - also perfectly placed for everything Liverpool. I'm sure it will have Wi-Fi. John
  10. Hi Edo I visit Liverpool at least once each year. I never tire of it or the people. So much history and despite severe blitz and council loss of buildings there's still plenty of great architecture. The two cathedrals are so different but equally amazing. You must visit the Philharmonic Dining Rooms pub frequented by many including the Beatles. Easiest is to buy a one day open top bus. You can hop on and off all day. I've sold a number of my Liverpool pics including the front cover of the Liverpool University Brochure. I always stay at the Days Inn hotel - perfect location, affordable and close to everything. You could never be bored in Liverpool. John
  11. Why is it that most times that I get a 'big' sale it's via a distributor? Always a downer when you see a 'big' sale and then see in the sales report it's a distributor sale with big minuses as commisions. Most of my Alamy direct sales are for smaller amounts. 😕 . Any ideas why this is? John
  12. Thanks for all your suggestions. 🙂 I'd been using more or less the same settings in ACR v. as I used successfully for ACR in Elements ACR v9.0. Following suggestions above I've reset ACR v. to Default and have started again. Results are very much improved and no longer have the over-processed look. John
  13. A bit of a strange one. I've been a bit disappointed that my IQ results with the Sony RX100 M6 weren't as good as those from my old Sony RX100 M3. I put it down to the different lens. Today I was editing files from my old Sony RX100 M3 using the current Adobe RAW editor (v. and noticed they also had what I can only describe as a muddy (over processed) look. I put the same Sony RX100 M3 image through my old Elements RAW (v.9.0) program and the same image seems much cleaner to me. Have any of you experienced or read about this problem?
  14. Hi Allan Have you looked into Brigg - nice little town and last time I looked prices were reasonable. John
  15. Looks like there's a regular bus service from Oranmore town centre to Galway and a rail station. Might be an answer?
  16. Would suggest RX100 M3 as a starting point in this range. Excellent lens. 95% + of my 5000+ images were taken on a Sony RX100 M3 and more recently RX100 M6. Check out my portfolio. Not one QC failure and sales every month.
  17. I always include Worldwide use when making my claim as this must include UK. Not sure if this makes a difference but I received the email yesterday.
  18. I've just checked and if I launch PS from the update box I get Adobe Photoshop Version: 20.0.4 20190227.r.76 2019/02/27: 1205725 x64 If I launch from the PS icon in the Taskbar I get Adobe Photoshop Version: 19.1.8 20190226.r.442 2019/02/26: 1205701 x64 I can only see one version of the program in the software list. Very confusing 😕
  19. Many thanks for confirmations Wim and MDM. I've just checked mine again and it has changed since I posed the question. It now shows Adobe Photoshop Version: 19.1.8 20190226.r.442 2019/02/26: 1205701 x64 John
  20. I am on a monthly premium for Photoshop 2018 CC and it is Version . 20.0.4 and I have auto updates turned on. Is this the latest version? I was sure I had read about a 2019 version?
  21. There are acres of land prepared like this in Thanet. They grow lettuce/leaf crops mainly. It started a couple of years back with just one small area and now it look like big business. Type 'lettuce crops commercial' into Google Image Search to see some examples/ Hope this helps.
  22. I am 100% Alamy exclusive. So far this year I have doubled my sales against same period last year and at acceptable amounts so quite happy.
