  1. Try searching for retirement properties. There are independent living apartments aimed at people over a certain age, usually 55 or 60, often in purpose built residential blocks. I guess it depends if there are any suitable ones in the area of Liverpool you are looking at within your budget. But at least you wouldn't be up against students/young professionals. Sue
  2. I can't really see any advantage for weather/crowds on the beach on Mayday bank holiday type shots, if they are just going to be buried in the main collection, unless buyers are made aware that there may be alternative locations available for a Mayday sunrise/sunset shot, not just those in the news feed. I know I was guilty of not uploading within the hour for news (more like 2 or 3 hours) but that was because I always returned to my computer to check quality. I aim to investigate quicker methods but the incentive isn't there at the moment. Surely opening up a reportage/archival route without QC will be seen by some as a way around QC? But I'll give it a try when I have something worth uploading...........
  3. But why also punish people who only made a rare upload to Live News, because they only did so when they had something that they thought might be of interest? I assume the purpose of the exercise was to reduce the number of submissions. Personally I haven't been able to upload much recently, due to other things going on in my life (yes, I'm an amateur!) but I always wanted to expand my photography and I'm grateful to Alamy for giving me that chance. Just sad that one avenue has suddenly and unexpectedly been closed when I'm on the verge of starting in earnest. Everyone has to start somewhere.
  4. I agree. An infrequent news uploader is possibly someone who uploads only when they have something which they think may be of interest, is a bit different or eye catching.
  5. As a very infrequent news uploader who has never sold news, I am disappointed to have received the email revoking my access to Live News. My most recent news upload was from the drought last summer of my collie sunbathing on the parched lawn. Hardly ground breaking or dramatic but Alamy were always telling us weather is in the news and it's a shame that should anything happen around here, I can no longer upload other than via the usual route. Alamy news have just retweeted a picture in the Times of a collie rolling in the snow so collies do sell!

  7. As far as I know the only people who know this particular email address are 2 family members, 1 friend and the company I have the email address with (1and1), none of whom know me Susan. And Alamy, who do know me as Susan. Weird. Sue
  8. I also received this email and the only place I can think of that they got my name/email from is Alamy, especially as it was addressed to Susan. I don't deal with any other stock libraries or POD sites, I've only had this email address since the end of July, very few people know it and Alamy is one of the very few places where I'm known as Susan.

  10. I had a look online through my library (Zinio reader) and I can see your image on page 47. I assume anyone can create an account if their library offers Zinio? Sue

  14. My 2 small batches from the 9th and 12th January have just wandered through QC. Thank you to Alamy for admitting there was a delay, it gave me hope that I hadn't done something daft.......
