  1. Same here, tried adding a few keywords/making changes on AIM to existing images on mobile a few times,but the interface doesn't allow me to do so (also Android).
  2. I've just uploaded a smallish batch. At the end, the web uploader showed "36 of 35 images uploaded". Had to look twice and, after a few head scratches as to where the mysterious extra image may have come from, decided to press finish upload anyway. AIM now shows 35 in QC (there were always just 35) but thought I'd mention it in case it's a tech glitch that causes any issues. In other news - Merry Christmas everyone, have a lovely weekend!
  3. "I luuuurve you, Santa!" "I looooouuurrrve you, too, Santa!"
  4. My travel companion started to get a wee bit irritated about the length of time I took taking shots of Apollo's pert bum from all sorts of angles. What can I say? Judging by the look on her face, Venus agrees with me, though!
  5. Here are my three 1. Tasty treats 1. 2. Taste is relative 3. Indulgent taste
  6. Cheers Wim, very helpful! Just found a few more uses (all reported), which is great. And one I wish I'd rather not found (in some ways), pic was used by GEO Magazine, acquired for the stately sum of $8.33 with quantity discount, and in the text they got the location wrong, despite the caption, keywords and "location" field all having the correct location. Not so geo -savvy, it seems, or perhaps reading is optional for journalists these days. Oh, well.
  7. Agree re products - their US American printers have a greater variety also, in terms of "novelty" type print products, mugs, mouse pads, that sort of thing. I guess they could add a second printing company to choose from if they wanted to, to fulfil those type of products if Loxley won't. Haven't needed this enough to suggest so far, but wonder if more customers contact them about it, they might consider it. But then again customers can of course do this themselves, too (if they have paid for image files)
  8. Re. Smugmug fees and printing - yes not cheap but I tend to tag on a small margin when clients order prints from their (password protected) galleries. Loxley are also at the upper end of pricing, but I've never had any complaints from clients, their fulfilment is good so I feel it's worth linking to them for prints, rather than having to do my own printing or organising via another third party and risking issues. Smugmug also regularly have booths at i.e. the Photography Show, so it's nice to go and have a chat to them, they're usually happy to explain new features and help with doing own cod
  9. Yucky-mucky beige skies above London (that day in October when Sahara desert dust mashed with pollution and Portuguese wildfire clouds) Live news pic, used in the Times, but as usual used a few days after the news deadline so low value. Alas, they all count so won't complain.
  10. Haha. In the summer, I'd be totally fine with that (split the profits? ) , but it was a bit chilly, so I'm glad I stayed dry. I now have to work my way through 64 gb of raw image files....
  11. Lovely pic Southmind! I took some long exposures of the fountains at night with the ferris wheel, and nearly got soaked because I stood in the middle and then the fountains suddenly started going again after they'd been off for half an our - a close escape :-) Only realised when a service vehicle guy who was doing maintenance on the fountains started waving his arms at me quite frantically. I was there from Monday until yesterday evening, nice, sunny weather except for one cloudy day. I will certainly return. Still dreaming of all the great food, wine, cheese, cakes....Many thanks for your ad
  12. Nice is very nice!! And all the other places too, especially all the lovely little towns in the mountains. Loved Cap Ferrat as well. The Christmas Market on Place Massena is a bit too big and busy for me, but I did shoot some nice long exposures of the ferris wheel and fountains/reflections. Thanks again for the tops, Southmind!
  13. Same here, seems they're working on the problems. Must be tricky as there's never a "quiet time" for the upload tools, with that many different contributor locations and time zones involved.
  14. I've just uploaded a mid-sized batch (circa 50), via the web uploader. Seemed fine now. Slow but that's probably a combination of larger file size & slow upload speed on my home line. Maybe all the Harry&Maggie frenzy is taking its toll on the world wide webbo
  15. Ah. I was just about to start an upload, glad I had a quick look at the forum...think I'll wait til tomorrow morning then.
  16. I just did a search and not a single alamy image comes up for "jaundiced bride". spacecadet - quick, get the keywords changed, there's a gap!!!
  17. Thank you!! PS. sounds like I'll catch the good weather!
  18. Am I the only one who feels that this is turning into an advertising thread for one provider's services? In the interest of competitive fairness (and because there are bound to be many other keywording providers not currently advertising here) perhaps this should be made clearer. I would especially question why a keywording services provider is registered as an alamy photographer with just 4 images which presumably she has submitted for the sole purpose of gaining access to alamy as a platform and forum to gain clients.
  19. Weird and un-stockimage-worthy they may be, but the first 10 or so image of the G***y lot are bloody well shot and lit! And I have to admit I find them fascinating, the image of the woman collapsed/fallen asleep over the ironing could happily be an exhibit at the Saatchi gallery and the tog would probably develop a cult following soon after. And carrot lady is a clear contender for the National Portrait Gallery. I'm only half joking....I have seen weirder things being applauded at the NPG before.
