  1. I'm terrible at tagging - live news pics go into stock without having to have tags so goodness knows how many of my pics aren't tagged...😳
  2. I think I was more dull back then, Ed, although the quest to be a dull man is always at the forefront of my mind. I do wear some beige, although I don't own a beige sports jacket with elbow pathces... 😥
  3. Forget the green/orange line, just concentrate on good, relevant keywords and captions. Upload more pics, regularly. To only have 904 pics in your port after 5 years shows a lack of enthusiasm. Get rid of the similars, it'll hurt your ranking. Shoot 'people doing things'. Good luck.
  4. No slippers here but strangely I wore them in my younger days, go figure.
  5. No. My pics regularly get published in local papers through constantly submitting news images. It’s taken me 8 years of hard work to get where I am now, I didn’t send any port pics to any editors on day 1.
  6. An arranged shoot. Love the backlight in this.
  7. Second sale of the month for $$$, it's a bit weird... Country: New York Usage: Indoor display Media: Non commercial display Industry sector: IT Manufacturing and services Print run: 1 Image Size: up to full area Start: 26 October 2020 End: 26 October 2023 The image will appear as decor for an IT company located in NYC. The image will be up to full area, and three year rights granted with a tentative installation window starting the end of October 2020 through the middle of December 2020.
  8. You've 37 images in a collection of over 215 million. You're extremely lucky to have made 2 sales so far. My first sale came after 4 months and 400 pics. If you're not making sales when you've 1,000 pics in your port, come back and ask the question again. In the meantime, upload pics and caption and tag well.
  9. When the author uses the word 'your' instead of 'you're' in his article, you know it just isn't worth reading any more...
  10. Nothing for me this month so far, but I usually get a bunch at the end of the month so I'm not worried.
