  1. More disturbing is that this email listed Alamy as sender, one would normally open without a hesitation.
  2. I also got the same message. Thanks I am not the only one, but not a good thing for the forum.
  3. Welcome to Alamy Oscar. Hope to see your first uploads soon, and many more over time.
  4. And yes whereas my elder son is in USA, younger has just shifted to Canada.
  5. Welcome to Alamy Diana If you are submitting to other websites also, you will find your Alamy experience very pleasant. I had my first rejection (only one image failed, but they rejected whole lot as per Alamy policy), after 100 uploads and more 1000 successful images. Just enjoy your Alamy.
  6. Welcome Peter Hope to see your uploads soon.
  7. Welcome to Alamy Chris. Hope you will enjoy Alamy experience.

    Welcome to Alamy mkarco. Liked your experiments with dentures and strawberries
  10. Don't get me wrong, I want QC to be much more rigorous than it is presently in Alamy, where one failure after 500 or 1000 successful images is considered a negative thing. If the same batch of files gets only 10 % nod in one website and 100 % in the second one, there is nothing to feel good about second one. What I am finding strange about is rejecting the whole lot, and another pending lot in which not a single image is rejected. Why reject lots and not poor quality images only.
  11. 1085 online images in three months of my membership, 99 successful uploads, I had started getting disheartened and wondering whether Alamy does have a QC?. I am now happy it has. I am writing this because I am contributing to two other websites also for last 3-4 years. In one my success rate is only 9 %, which they consider a good rating. The rejected images (rest 90 %) I submit to another website, where my success rate is 90 %, naturally I did not find it very good when my success rate was 100 % for more than 1000 uploaded images, but now that one image was rejected (and with it went down other 20 images and previous batch of pending 21 images, for no fault), I am happy that there is a QC on Alamy, although I will never reconcile to the idea of rejection whole pending lot/s. Can't Alamy think of changing this unjustified approach.
  12. Unusual Track submissions entry Date received QC date 13 April 2016 OL3992277 Online upload 18 -- -- -- Awaiting QC 12 April 2016 OL3946066 Online upload 20 -- -- -- 22 March 2016 Awaiting QC Any explanation please?
  13. I am using Tamron AF 18-200, f 3.5-6.3, macro 62, A14, Aspherical LD XR DiII, with my Canon 550D, that saves me changing normal lens 18-55 with 55-200 or 55-300 for distant objects.I find it handy.
  14. I also use Chrome and Windows 10. Have signed in only once, and book marked the page, just have to click the book mark, or just click the tab if multiple pages were open at the time of closing chrome. If ever multiple pages are not open Chrome gives option of restoring defaults
  15. My options are simple and straightforward. If the object is a plant, flowers, view of a landscape, lake, mountain, it goes as RF If object is a building, monument, or a place with persons, a property, my selecting no with Model/Property release automatically puts it under RM.
  16. We all are here to build up a respectful portfolio, error free as far as possible. We have often been messaging members in Forum if we found any discrepancy in ID or label, and don't think any sincere contributor would ignore it, because it is to his/her benefit, suggester is only helping. It is effective in active Forum threads.
  17. Why don't you use mobile app Flower Checker, managed by plant experts from different parts of the World http://www.flowerchecker.com/
  18. Welcome Andy, you are not the first one I had also read about 4 test images, but uploaded (thinking 4 is minimum) 5 images, they failed I uploaded 4 in next, they passed. Now I have more than 900 online images in three months.

    Welcome Alberto Nice to see that you also have some interest in plants. By the way your image FTHC9B has Asteraceae a superfluous insertion at the beginning of caption, it is a member of Liliaceae as rightly indicated subsequently.
  20. Welcome Shakir Hope to see your portfolio soon, and learn some of photographic techniques from your experience at New York Institute of Photography
  21. Welcome Sjc, nice collection of photographs.
  22. Not Opuntia ficus-indica though in which spines are very short or almost absent. It should be Opuntia x columbiana http://science.halleyhosting.com/nature/gorge/cactus/polycantha.html
