  1. Have you found any Alamy images in June 2018?

    Thanks Sally - that one's mine - live news from a few weeks ago that I'd forgotten to tag done now so thanks for heads up

  3. Show your newest image

    It's a really striking picture Sally, but I thought you could only take photos in the gardens for personal use - unless this is visible from outside? I've one of the entrance and would love to get more if things have changed - they're really beautiful
  4. Live News workflow

    It's very fiddly because the text is obviously very small - much easier on an ipad, but if I don't have mine with me it's a very good backup
  5. Live News workflow

    Hi Colin I transfer images from my DSLR using a wifi sim card and have Lightroom on my iphone (free) so can do basic editing. I add the caption and headline in Lightroom. I then transfer the pic from Lightroom onto 'camera roll' and then use the Alamy website on my phone to upload to Alamy as I would if using a desktop or whatever, only clicking on 'Live News' rather than 'Stock". I found it more intuitive than using shuttersnitch (even though I bought the app to try) Hope that makes sense Kay
  6. have you tried clearing cache as well? hope that helps Kay
  7. Hi Douglas - a grey nothingy kind of day did for me a couple of weeks ago too - I got the same email for the first time Very tricky to show and to make interesting enough without just looking dull and flat. At least we get lots of practice here in Glasgow
  8. Have you found any Alamy images in April 2018

    Many thanks for the spots Bryan and Rob
  9. Customer search activity

    Could it be that one of your images is RF and the other is RM and the customer filtered for one or the other?
  10. Alamy home page broken?

    seems to be working fine here (chrome)
  11. Same problem here - yesterday and today with images still showing as 'processing'. An upload from yesterday was still showing as 'processing' this morning so I resubmitted the same images. There was a delay of several hours, but then they showed as 'image in QC'. The three submitted yesterday are still showing greyed out 'processing'.

    Thanks Nigel
  13. I'm wondering if anyone can throw any light on live news images once they go into normal stock please I have a couple at the moment that are definitely showing on sale, but all they have is a caption, no tags at all - they appear when I search for terms in the caption My usual experience is that without tags they sit in AIM until I either tag or delete them, but not this time, has anyone else experienced a change or inconsistencies with this? Thanks, Kay
  14. If you scroll right to the bottom of your dashboard page on Alamy, right down at the bottom in the blue area under 'Selling on Alamy' there's a section 'Sell Live News'. If you click on that, point 3 on the left hand side tells you about adding captions, headlines etc I use Lightroom. As fotoDogue says, under the Library module in Lightroom you can add captions etc using the Metadata section. Where Alamy refer to adding a headline - when using Lightroom this goes where it says 'Title', and the Caption goes as you'd imagine in the box marked 'caption'.
