  1. Hi Marianne For what it's worth, since reading this thread, I've checked some of my older images, and found exactly the same problem of doubling up of tags. Also, the number of tags in AIM doesn't seem to equate with the tags seen when I open one of my images as a potential buyer. But with nearly 9000 images on Alamy, there's no way I can go back and repair the damage. Life's too short! Will
  2. Of course I'm fully aware of the upload requirements, after all I'm nearly 8000 uploads down the line! I'm not suggesting uploading large TIFFs; instead I was suggesting making "normal" 50 mg jpegs smaller: around 25 mgs (before compression). As far as FTP is concerned, I've tried it, and would continue to do so if I didn't get the message "Insecure server, it does not support FTP over TLS". I've tried Googling a fix for this, but can't find anything that I can understand! Any help with that gratefully received! And by the way, I always check that images comply with Alamy's requirements before uploading: I'm not that daft... Will
  3. One thing I've tried, with limited success, is to upload only small batches, typically 5 at a time, and then another 5, and so on. Also I've started making my images smaller, which goes against the grain as far as quality is concerned, but makes them uploadable - just about! Instead of my usual 50mg files (100 as TIFF, 16 bit files), I'm now reducing them to around 25mg...
  4. Please tweak the tags area to allow apostrophes: for instance, French place-names can become unidentifiable if the apostrophe is removed. And why not allow capital letters as well? Will Perrett
  5. Alamy has just sold an image of mine for $3.41. I was under the impression, according to the rubric by individual images, that the cheapest selling price - for personal use and presentation/newsletters - is £9.99, some six times more than Alamy appear to have charged a buyer for my image (note the selling price was in dollars!). Can anyone explain this apparent anomaly, or justify such a meagre sum. I know every little helps, but this is getting close to insulting! Will Perrett
