  1. Your friend may also have a look into GIMP (sort of PS) and Darktable or RawTherapee (both sort of LR) . All open source and for free with full scale functionality.
  2. me too with the factory, thanks for the hint Allan and Colin
  3. Solitaire pink cloud, shortly after sunset Room in Angkor Wat in twilight Sunset with factory
  4. most zoos seem to give away that jewellery to their penguins. Would love to know if it has a function ... maybe designed to go after photographers? dunno, maybe - giving you a special pose for your picture - chit chatting the latest rumors - fighting over the new lady penguin that arrived a day ago
  5. very impressive, congratulations!

    The only two methods I can think of are to shoot and stuff it or to cut the animal out of another picture.
  7. Marcio Cabral lost his Wildlife Photographer award over placing a stuffed anteater in his picture. https://news.sky.com/story/wildlife-photographer-marcio-cabral-loses-prize-over-taxidermy-anteater-11348531
  8. Going to https://secure.alamy.com/myalamycustomer.aspx#Payment-options should allow you to change the displayed currency. This has worked quite a few moons ago, posted in this thread and I have not tested it myself again. Please let us know if it worked.
  9. Also works on Linux with chromium (same as chrome without google addons), appears slightly slower than normal.
  10. welocme to alamy and the forum, Mangesh. Don't worry about the fail, ensure to cover all QC fail reasons in your workflow prior to submission and you should be fine in future.

    Scrolling on 4K Monitor

    thanks Mark I tested your solution and it also works for me. Still a bit off from ideal that we either have shrink the window or increase the zoom factor, just to be able to scroll. Would be nice if Alamy can correct it at some point in time. While I write this, reminds me that in IT these things don't really count as an error, as a workaround is available. So in IT seen as a (small) nuissance, because the functionality generally works for more than x% of the users. Being in IT myself, and when affected myself, I hate it, but if I have to argue this in front of a user, I am 100% with the IT view; "not an error, there is a work around" Pretty pathetic, but I understand both sides, as in IT we have to balance nuisances versus desperately necessary new functionality, to be achieved with limited resources.
  12. Welcome to Alamy and the forum Sajad. Nice pictures that you uploaded already. There is a lot of info in the forum and if a question is not answered yet, also a bunch of friendly people who may be able to step in.
  13. Absolutely correct I also believe you may be misunderstanding. http://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/guidelines-for-submitting-images/?section=3 File size of over 17MB (when uncompressed/open) Your JPEG file is likely to have a compressed size of 3-5MB. Opening a JPEG in an image program such as Adobe Photoshop will show you the uncompressed/open file size. You can also say that 6 MPix is the smallest imagesize accepted.

  15. this is a photo of last years contributor meeting- alamy was spelt out on the beach with all the empty plastic beer cups - have you not been there?
  16. Very nice encounter, and reminds me that I always prefer human police, over any amount of cameras. The latter(cameras) I regard more as an intrusion of privacy - and London is now plastered with them. The only thing they are good for is analysis after something has happened. Plain clothes and uniformed officers, can react much faster and bear more of a chance to stop something from happening. Your experience shows that all involved do profit from an informal chat besides achieving much higher security for the entire community as would be possible with cameras.
  17. When I use AIM on my 4K monitor and open the window in full screen mode, 50 thumbnails are opened and shown. Because the screen is not entirely filled with thumbnails, the automatic loading of more images does not seem to work. I currently work around this by making the browser window smaller, such that some thumbnails are not shown anymore. As soon as I do this, the automatic loading of more images works again and I can go back to full screen after a couple more thumbnails are loaded. Can AIM be changed to load 100 or 150 thumbnails initially? I believe that this may allow scrolling from start and does not need the workaround. A second issue is that the "Preview images" appear that small that I'd rather call them large thumbnails. Could the preview images on 4K monitors made larger please? (I believe this was already mentioned in another thread, that I fail to find)
  18. I like that picture too, You also turned it 180° (upside down), which makes it more mysterious, correct?
  19. I also want what Alan has ... uploaded 51 pics this morning, now still in QC ..... so 3 star rating not enough. just joking - I am more than happy with the usual 24hrs.
  20. hmm, good point, I have read it too quickly and just thought it ment that I should not put my contact details into the captions or keywords. new contributor contract, you should receive an email today. I do not currently think it is a big deal, more cosmetic, Now also contains alamy afiliates sales, gues this is when they buy other agencies and sell through those. here is the link to the changes http://www.alamy.com/terms/contributor-contract-changes.asp?utm_campaign=1157400_Contract Change - April 2018&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Alamy Contributors &dm_i=2SWW,OT20,2JUE5N,2JDNC,1
  21. I believe everyone just tries to make the challengers final selection process as difficult as possible I fully agree with a lot of great pictures in this thread already. Difficult to select the best from one let alone weed out 8 finally.
  22. Your chances are slim to catch them, you may though try to contact the registrars abuse addresses (in bold below) . Best not to visit these sites, they make money by the adverts put up and you may also catch a virus, trojan or worse, downloading anything.
