  1. Photos taken of National Trust property from a public footpath are permissible. John.
  2. .........perhaps the team have tea and cakes first on a Friday morning.
  3. I haven't used Luminar but Photoshop couldn't be any easier. Click on sky replacement, click on sky image, click OK - easy! John.
  4. Worst sales volume for a while, revenue not too bad. 6 sales for $278. Lowest $5.21, Highest $170.26, Average $46.33. Views and zooms way down. John.
  5. In that case, contact contributor relations. contributors@alamy.com John.
  6. The problem with only putting your Top 3-4 with SuperTag is the customer might think some of my other images were better - if only they had been found. My philosophy would be to put "River Stour" equally in all my images of the River Stour and let the buyer decide which is best. The images I think are my best don't always get sold, and the ones that do constantly surprise me. John.
  7. I would close image manager (maybe even the Alamy site) and start again. Maybe just a gremlin in the works. John.
  8. I'm mostly exclusive (about 90%) and have signed up to receive emails - and I didn't get one either! John.
  9. I use Seek by iNaturalist, which is free. It's found only about a 60% success rate for exact species though, but its better than nothing and sometimes it will give you the general genera so that you can search online further. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjP9cL-46DwAhXoQxUIHRPlAN8QFjAAegQIFRAD&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.inaturalist.org%2Fpages%2Fseek_app&usg=AOvVaw32i7Ebj10o5hvbUzYV8fz2 John.
  10. As I said, if it's technically correct, let the buyers decide if it's worth purchasing. I've had some surprising sales from images that I thought would be difficult to sell. Upload your old images and sit back and await all those sales!😉😄 John.
  11. That's right. If you don't buy a ticket you won't win the lottery! John.
  12. I know, only kidding. If an image I take is technically OK (as per Alamy rules) then I will submit it and let the buyers decide if it's worth purchasing. John.
  13. I've only had 6 sales so far this month - and none have been PU. What am I doing wrong! I feel left out of the PU club! John.
