    I have the third reply.


    The company is in the UK and is called Hiscox. The email I recieved says their cover is good for clause 5.1.




    I have used Hiscox in the past for liability and also for accidental damage/theft and found them good to deal with. Gear was covered even if stolen from a parked vehicle as long as it was out of sight. I can't say how watertight there liability insurance is in particular with regards Alamy contract but the prices seemed reasonable to me.

    I just made a New York Cheesecake which is in the oven, however, while washing the food processor blade I cut my finger which now has a plaster around it, it's a very tiny cut but wouldn't stop bleeding - now making it difficult to use the keyboard 🙃



    Sadly not, I am on Metronidazole, the dentist and the chemist said alcohol would make me very ill. Having researched it online it advises not to drink until at least 3 days after finishing the course 😢

  3. BAD - I am on anti biotics with a gum infection which is quite painful and making me feel ill.

    BAD - I have my second Covid vaccine today, this could be viewed as good but as it will make me feel even worse then it is BAD

    BAD - I cannot drink alcohol whilst on the antibiotics and not for three days after I finish the course.


    GOOD - Nothing really but there is potential for a great stage of the Giro d'Italia today so I will watch that on telly this afternoon.

  4. Submitted a single image, a product shot so it had a lot of work done in post, submitted and waited. Recently I have been getting the email within a day or two at most but this time nothing. I don't tend to check in every day as I don't sell that many images so after a few days I feared the worst and it must have failed. This morning I check in to Image Manager and its sitting there waiting for Keywording but no email ever arrived? A first for me.

  5. How important are the primary and secondary categories when preparing an image for sale?

    I often have difficulty deciding on a suitable one, nevermind two, for instance, just a picture of a street, not really architecture, not sure about lifestyle but not what I would choose and not really travel, or perhaps it is. Another image of a church, well I could use architecture for primary but what for secondary? I really think there needs to be a few more choices

    I’m still enjoying my Sony MK3. I’ll never give up one of these. Goes great with my Fuji x-T2, of which I have everything from 10-24 to 100-400 with some nice primes, too.


    I had a Fuji X-E1 when they first came out with the 16-55 and 55-200 lenses. Fujinon lenses are up there with the best. However I sold it and the lenses when I started getting into video as at the time Fuji had no decent video solution.

    I use a 50 megapixel Canon the most, but I also carry a small Sony RX100 version 1 on my belt for the unexpected, or for very very long walks. I have had a lot of stock sales success with my Sony, however I am thinking of replacing the Sony with a Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II.


    The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is only very slightly bigger than the Sony, but has specs more to my liking.


    The Sony RX100  series are all great cameras, but consider the Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II before you buy.



    Thanks Bill, I will take a closer look
