  1. The first time I used PayPal for payment I had to pay the PayPal fee, thereafter I changed to payment via my bank. Carol
  2. I had one earlier in the year for $2.18 and thought that was low! Apparently it was a distribution sale and I thought that was low. However, I think there is an option also to opt out of distribution sales also so Alamy told me at the Photography Show. Opt out maybe ? Carol
  3. Hi, I have used Topaz de noise and have found it excellent, though if you overdo things it will just completely flatten images taking out any detail so you need to learn how to use to it's best advantage, there are plenty of tutorials on the web and I'm sure there are those on here more experienced than me who will offer advice also. Look forward to seeing your shopping trolleys😉 Carol
  4. Hope you all had a good day, was there yesterday it wasn't too busy, well the Nikon stand was😉 also found the Alamy stand and they were very helpful answering a few questions that I had so thank you to them. Carol
  5. Starphinx just a suggestion - as you are talking about who charges what for their work, maybe a separate thread would be appropriate😉 Carol
  6. I'm guessing $2.19 counts as micro☹️ Estonia one month bulk discount flat rate, not really complaining as have had some much larger ones just didn't think they went that low. Image is P8JDM2 not worked out how to get on here yet. Carol
  7. Sorry if I'm hijacking the thread but hoping to visit Cambodia later in the year hence new camera bag😉thinking at the moment...one dslr body/24-70mm and /28-300mm not sure about the 70/200 2.8 plus sony rx100 MK (thank you Alan Bell😉) I know it's going to be hot (understatement!) so me thinks less is more? Naturally the bag will need space for a few other bits and bobs i.e., loo roll😄 Carol
  8. Ah thanks Kumar but I've already booked cheap train tickets for the Monday but have a great time 😉
  9. If you can, why not visit the Photography Show at the NEC next week, that way you can try before you buy😉 I feel the need for another shoulder type bag 😉 Carol
  10. Uploading fairly quickly today, guess everyone's out playing in the snow (did have to click on numerous store fronts to access here though!) Carol
  11. Just received two emails for one submission. I find submissions seem to upload faster either early morning or late evening. Carol
  12. Uploaded small batch very late Sunday night, through QC late yesterday, no problems
  13. Not updated for me yet either. Also having to click on images on my dashboard which I've never had to do before Carol
  14. Starphinx, there is a lot of good advice here on this forum and I have to say I agree with others i.e., MDM and Keith Douglas. I realise that Live News shots are what they are but I still consider it important to get composition and exposure correct. For me, I would never upload anything anywhere that was what I consider substandard in regard to composition/exposure but that's just me. I am sometimes quite shocked to be honest at some images I've seen on here - not necessarily live news but I guess some people just upload to maybe keep numbers up. Don't worry so much about zooms/views etc. Also, I think better to upload a few informative live news images than loads less so. Anyway Happy New Year and keep clicking Carol
  15. Merry Christmas everyone and Happy Healthy New Year and I just signed in without climbing mountains, dodging buses and fire hydrants Carol
  16. Just managed to get it without jumping through hoops ! Safari on a Mac - think at least they would make the images festive
  17. I think you made the most of bad light and lack of reach here and it really goes to show that you don't always need massive heavy lenses i.e., last year I was lucky locally to get some nice shots of a Kingfisher in an urban situation a few in my port I think. At the time I was using a heavy 200-400mm handheld. It was so close I had to zoom out and the exif shows the focal length between 180 and 200mm, could have used my 70-200mm 2.8 ! You never can tell, good luck with shooting a few more. Carol
  18. What is also extremely frustrating is the fact that they keep our money in their account until it goes over $50 - I have at least 2 cups of reasonable coffee sitting in my account and I'm very thirsty!
  19. Doubt they have time to look at absolutely everything but as above they can probably tell from experience whether it was the photographer's intention to produce blur or not. I have some images where it was my intention to blur and no problem with these at all it's different from camera shake but anyway we don't know what the original poster's image was that failed and what it failed on.
  20. I think there is normally a reason given on the image that has failed i.e., soft or lacking in definition/camera shake etc., might be worth having another look.
  21. Congratulations both of you onwards and upwards....... Carol
  22. Hope they bring it back as I found it especially useful when typing names that were exceptionally long. Carol
