Still can't ge the knack of doing larger images here😂 Carol
  2. My dental appointment which had been postponed twice finally went ahead today😄the first of 2 visits next one two weeks time and that will be me sorted. So....hair done/nails done/teeth nearly then I'm good to go........where ?🤨 Carol
  3. Congratulations Rico that's fantastic you will have to try and get a copy of the book at some stage .... Carol
  4. Thanks again everyone and georgphotos appreciate your input and the fact you have my best interests at heart, I honestly never gave it a thought when I put the original post up. I have removed the text from my posts as you suggested and if anyone wants to remove relating texts in a quote on their posts re: mine it's absolutely fine by me and I won't be offended. I genuinely did not think of any possible consequences to be honest. All my images are exclusive to Alamy. I still had a happy day yesterday but I have a happy day whenever I sell an image at whatever price😉 Plus also got my hair done yesterday, so double happy day😁 I will continue to be optimistic 😁 It's fine to express views and opinions safaras I'm concerned, always so much to learn from others. Thanks again everyone for the kind words and here's to a lot more happy days for all of us😄 Carol
  5. Thank you for asking but it's fine and I'm not sure anyway about deleting as I actually thought it was a point of this thread to show images and say what they are used for but could be I'm wrong, it has been known😉 just thought it was nice to share some good news in these exacting times.... Carol
  6. Thanks again, but I can't delete posts from others😉 Carol
  7. Thanks all, comments on all noted. Re: cranes - so many of them everywhere we go nowadays, I came to the conclusion a long time ago, if you can't get something out of the image, just include it. Georgphotos, do you mean delete text and/or image ? Carol
  8. Thank you so much Shearwater and Gareth, how did you get it larger Shearwater please? Gareth thank you also and I am sorry your sale got refunded, I have everything crossed mine won't be but who knows, I know it's the way things go but at the moment it's certainly made my day😁 My cheeky other half said after I'd got up off the floor, well it's an ok image but not one of your best, probably quite true but hoping it may turn out to be😉 Being an optimist I shall now look forward to getting a banknote sometime 😄. Carol
  9. Well I've just picked myself up off the floor, this one came in today, my biggest sale to date very high $$$ very happy, here's hoping it doesn't get refunded! Why did I take this picture? I quite liked the reflections and the sky, there you go....... 99 MB7798 x 4430 pixels 3 MB compressed Not sure how to make it larger on here, using iMac/Catalina. Carol
  10. Well I've just picked myself up off the floor, this one came in today, my biggest sale to date very high $$$ very happy, here's hoping it doesn't get refunded! Why did I take this picture? I quite liked the reflections and the sky, there you go....... image below courtesy of shearwater😉 Carol
  11. I'm definately not afraid of trying new things and I did try Lightroom albeit many years ago. A friend of mine sent me some tutorials on dvd's/cd's whatever they were, this was back in the day before so many tutorials on the web. So.....I put the disks in my laptop and went through each step on my desktop, pausing it as and when I needed to. At the end of a very long day I just still didn't get it and ended up with a migraine☺️ However, I guess much has changed since then and maybe now it's easier. For now I'm more than happy with my workflow using Bridge and PS. I've never not been able to find a file quickly for past clients however many years old they are. I also do backups on 2 external hard drives. Someone mentioned Breezebrowser, wow I remember using that when I had Windows back in the day. Also there was another programme called Rawshooter (could be showing my age here!) that was very good but it ceased to exist after a while. So much useful information on this forum and again thanks for straightening me out with the straighten tool and a few others.😉 MDM I hope your recovery goes from strength to strength and Edo I hope the ginger is helping your hay fever. Carol
  12. Feel so much better reading that I'm not the only one re: Lightroom 😁 Carol
  13. Ok, so I've just clicked done and the image disappeared off screen also but from memory I think I always clicked on Open anyway. I guess this is Adobe's new normal ! I preferred the old normal but that applies to so many things these days. I will just need to go the righthand side instead of the top😄 I don't use Lightroom, never have as I never got on with it when I tried it some years ago so I don't even have it on my computer now. Horses for courses as they say 😉 Carol
  14. Thank you again everyone, I've just had another practice and managed ok, the Geometry info also useful. Edo I hope you are feeling better today. Carol
  15. Ah thanks so much everyone, I thought I was going mad! That is so helpful as my next question was going to be the lens profile one. I liked it as it was before it was so straightforward but I guess will have to get used to it😄 So ok, think that's the straightening sorted though will probably need more practice, and also the lens distortion bit. I will just have to make sure I take straighter images ha ha. Anything else I have forgotten please let me know..... Again thanks for the help it's very much appreciated ! Carol
  16. Edo, I really hope you've got Lightroon sorted out......after reading this thread I thought I had better check my CC. I don't use Lightroom just Adobe Bridge/Camera Raw and PS. Ho hum, looks like Camera Raw has updated. I now can't find the auto straighten tool in Camera Raw which used to be at the very top and was extremely useful. I've hovered over the various other things but can't seem to find it. Don't mean to hijack your post of course, just that it seemed related😉 Thoughts anyone ? Carol
  17. Zooms not too bad, if only they would turn into sales😉 However, some of my earlier sales have now cleared so looking forward to 1st July. No sales so far this month but early days yet, onwards and upwards everyone😉
  18. Glad you managed to finally move Allan I bet it was a massive relief for you. I look forward to seeing some lovely seal images from Donna Nook later in the year...Lots of luck and happiness in your new home. Carol
  19. Looks like a goldfinch, sadly I found a dead baby one this morning it had flown into the patio doors, note to self.......do not clean the windows too well.... Carol
  20. Glad you got it sorted Allan, sounds like a glitch somewhere. At least you can do your keywording now😀 Carol
  21. My public liability insurance also £2M. The only time I had to increase it was when I did a wedding shoot at Waddesdon Manor who insisted on £5M and certain other conditions and proof/copy of certificate, all of which I provided. Guess it would depend on cost how much for you to increase it, I don't think it would be too much more so probably worth checking it out. Carol
  22. I might clean the inside of the car today, have been putting it off - on the other hand........😉 Carol
  23. My kit insurance is with Aaduki. I still have professional indemnity insurance even though I no longer choose to do commercial etc. I just feel better knowing it's there just in case 😉 Carol
  24. Hi Steve, yes it's true you can crop and still get decent images though I do really try to get everything right in camera as I don't like to crop if I can help it but sometimes it's necessary. Also use Nikon lenses. I use a desktop iMac so no problems so far 😊 Carol
  25. Hi Steve, Nikon D850 and Sony RX100 Mk1, love em both - yes pretty fast machine😉 Carol
