  1. There are different ways to measure a 'good' month. A bit disappointing so far for sales but my 'current cleared balance' is already more than I got last month. (and yes, it is only the 12th)
  2. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET RID OF CAPTCHA NOW Every time I log in it is slower, less accurate (it CANNOT recognise a traffic light, or a bicycle - I can) and even more infuriating, and after you click a fire hydrant you have to wait five seconds for another fire hydrant to appear and when you click that fire hydrant you have to wait five seconds for another fire hydrant to appear and when you click that fire hydrant you have to wait five seconds for another fire hydrant to appear and when you click that fire hydrant you have to wait five seconds for another fire hydrant to appear and when you click that fire hydrant you have to wait five seconds for another fire hydrant to appear......
  3. I always want to know what search terms were used when things like this sell......
  4. It's very hit and miss. Sometimes they are translated, sometimes not. I can't work out why Any idea why Mhairi becomes Nicole?
  5. I've found a new game! James Cleverly = James geschickt Ed Balls = Ed-kugeln Peter Whittle = Peter schnitzen Mark Durkan = Kennzeichnen Sie Durkan MP Bob Hope = Bob hoffe Tim Vine = Tim Weinstock / Tim Rebe (just wrong) Thomas More = Thomas Mehr weirdest? - Mhairi Black = Nicole Schwartz ???? and, best of all.... Mark Reckless = Marken Sie rucksichtsloss !
  6. Admittedly the German translation does imply a higher level of certainty.
  7. Well done George - not sure if he's on here - new to Alamy and I think this is may well be his first sale!
  8. Thanks so much for reporting that. I was very pleased to see the sale and wondered where it had ended up. It doesn't get better than RSPB for a bird photo. I'd gone to Westminster to get some hard-hitting political news pics and ended up with....
  9. I had a response to my enquiry, I replied to the response - I am still awaiting a response to my reply to the response.
  10. Is there a difference between 'only available on' and 'exclusive to'? As a linguist I'd say no - maybe a legal expert knows better.
  11. In tried that, but the train I'm on will be be arriving in 20 min and it didn't look like was going to finish in time
  12. It's taking too long to add up, but there were 582 submissions, I usually upload 10 at a time unless it's a news story, so around 6000?
  13. Mine says "Exclusive Alamy" - maybe the wording across the pond is different (or they've changed it overnight)
  14. That is me paraphrasing - I don't believe in quoting private emails - though if Alamy want to come back with an official explanation......
  15. Expected response from Alamy - basically 'we are always trying new things'.
  16. Unfortunately, not all of mine are exclusive - I have to find out which ones are. Some subjects I only send to Alamy, so they were easy to do by pseudo, but the rest will take some checking. I wouldn't want to be dishonest or inaccurate!
  17. December - very disappointing. 2018 - best year ever on Alamy. My previous best year was 2012 (when I had exactly 1/3 of the images on file I do now) before the commission changed. It has taken this long to beat that total. However, total income is up, number of sales is up by over 100 on last year and the number of pics per sale (sales per pic if you prefer) has improved. Average fee has dropped marginally but did not continue the cliff-edge fall I've seen over the previous five or six years. So, with one very obvious exception, 2019 looks potentially promissing. Three more months to get 30,000 images checked and exclusivitised.
  18. Ten trips cost me €12.70 and two pics of the tickets have got me back about £50. Good investment
  19. because until very recently nobody was interested in it
  20. and another just popped up. I've had two today that were sold and refunded earlier in the month - now sold again, for about the same amount.
  21. I've had six, getting me over a nice round milestone for the year - all different uses and presumably customers. One just popped up, the year still has a few hours left in it to deliver.
  22. Never met Duckukong but I've been using Malwarebytes for ages and can recommend it
