  1. There is nothing on the claim form about landlords - it asks for your bank account details so the payment goes directly to you... https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/802445/winter-fuel-payment-claims-2019-2020.pdf You have until 31 March 2020 to make a claim for this winter.... https://www.gov.uk/winter-fuel-payment You will need a UK National Insurance number (I think you said you have one). Go for it...🙂
  2. I've still got it if you want to make me an offer....😀. I've still got the MPP as well but the last time I dragged it out for a bit of nostalgia the shutter on the 'standard' lens, an old Kodak, had seized up.
  3. I have the V700. I have scanned a few 6x12 transparencies with it and 15 are on sale with Alamy. Two have sold, one of them three times. I've also scanned some 6x6 which I think might pass QC but I haven't had the nerve to try yet...🥴 35mm - forget it, for stock anyway. For the curious - the 6x12mm format was from a Calumet 6x12 roll film back on an old MPP 5x4in field camera.
  4. Good point - I probably should have made that clear. Is it possible to edit the headline? Can't see a way to do it. Just to be pedantic though - the bug is in Lightroom, not the plug-ins, though it only affects the plug-ins.
  5. Yes, I realise that but I think the Alamy Bridge plug-in uses the Export function. I tried it a while ago and I seem to remember it does, that's why I flagged it up. The point being that it will export jpegs as low res, regardless of what the plug-in says.
  6. Just received an email from LRTimelapse.... "Adobe seems to have introduced a severe bug with the new Lightroom Classic 9 which was released earlier this week. This bug concerns custom export plugins, like LRTExport. Basically Lightroom 9 ignores any custom export settings that 3rd party export modules set and instead always exports in JPG with default settings, no matter what the Plugin says. That means, if you choose any of the TIFF settings in LRTExport, you will get JPG files, named as TIFF, but still JPG files, which will make the Renderer fail." I'm not sure if this will affect Alamy Bridge users (I don't use it). More info.... https://lrtimelapse.com/?na=v&nk=12868-61790c1b72&id=37 https://forum.lrtimelapse.com/Thread-tiff-export-gives-jpeg-files-with-tif-extension-with-lightroom-9?pid=44093#pid44093
  7. Click on the 'Restore down' button at top right of the browser window to reduce the size. Does the 'Show All' appear? If it's the same as on my PC then it will - and it stays there if I then re-maximise the window. If I move the window to a second monitor the 'show all' link appears as soon as the window starts to move. Edit; I think I've figured it out - i think it's because there are more than 50 keywords. I've still got a few old film scans on Alamy which have more than 50 keywords (a lot of them duplicates from the old ess/main/comp days). I've just tried it with one of these and it's the same. Maybe it's a feature that Alamy have purposely added to discourage using more than 50 - i.e. they normally won't be seen. Edit 2; I've reduced the keywords on one image to 49 - I'll see what happens after the update. Incidentally, I hadn't realised this before but if you click on the the 'show all' link the duplicates are ignored. I had 62 keywords on this image but only 38 were shown when I clicked on 'show all'.
  8. Okay, I'll give this one a go.... Basilica di San Marco, Venice...
  9. Spotted one while I was out and about today with 'aerial platform' on the side. I hadn't thought of that one - I'll have to revisit all my 'cherry pickers' now. Also, apparently - aerial work platform (AWP), elevating work platform (EWP), bucket truck, or mobile elevating work platform (MEWP). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerial_work_platform
  10. Most of my clocks are, like me, getting a bit old....😀 And don't forget your cameras - I always used to forget until I put an alarm on my phone to remind me. Did I mention I was getting old?
  11. A few observations.... 2A13D8M - those are called setts, not cobblestones. Leave those as keywords though as most people don't seem to know the difference. Cobbles are natural unworked stones, usually pebbles. Setts are manufactured or 'worked' stone. WW1W5E, WXW5DY, WXW518, 2A139MF - no captions (except just 'Liverpool') and minimal keywords. WW1T53 - in the UK we call them 'access platform' or more often 'cherry picker'. Facelift is the name of a plant hire company. Cheers... Vince
