  1. ...sounds like they're trying to bully the photographer. Contact contributors@alamy.com and ask their opinion. I think if they have any valid reason to see the images removed then they should be contacting the agency not the photographer. If any of the pictured employees did not qualify for a UK work permit then maybe there would be a problem there ? You could try contacting The Guardian newspaper - they are sometimes interested in this type of issue. GD
  2. My guess is that it's a relatively recent DIY project to create what you’ve said - a movable hen-house. If it was in the Yorkshire Dales then someone may have been inspired by Shepherds’ Huts, movable huts on wheels - and mixed in some of the stylistic features of a beach cabin or Victorian bathing machine.

  5. I had a similar situation… I had a disparity of 140 which I eventually accounted for as… Images that had previously failed QC = 45 Images I have previously deleted = 92 Images pending deletion = 3 GD
  6. I noticed "something different" yesterday on my DELL Ultrasharp which i think is NOT wide gamut. I was busy doing other stuff and it just looked as though everything was more saturated than normal. Today i notice what looks like extra saturation on two other screens (also NOT wide gamut). I guess the people maintaining FireFox think they've "improved" the product. GD
  7. Yeah Yeah I agree ! in fact I'll bet three bananas it's an Argonaut! look at this one, if you zoom in you can see a guy leaning out of the cockpit with a camera! https://www.airhistory.net/photo/98821/182

  16. You could try sorting out them out by general subject matter and offering bundled sets on ebay. “Central American Wildlife - 1000 35mm transparencies” …or “Musicians from around the world playing their instruments – 500 35mm transparencies” …or “Public Transport of the Americas – 600 35mm transparencies” This type of offer could appeal to collectors of ephemera, schools projects, editors of websites or magazines etc: Don’t expect a mad rush, but if you get $10 that’s more than what you would get throwing them in the trash, and you would have the satisfaction of knowing that someone has found a use for them. There are people selling old transparencies on ebay - the ones I’ve looked at look a bit overpriced for just small collections. Good luck! Dave
  17. In A.I.M, under ‘discoverability’ we can filter for images that are; [ ] deletion pending Would it be possible to also have a filter; [ ] previously deleted At the moment, I have to go through my submission history one submission at a time to see images I have deleted in the past.
  18. Top does look like a Rolls Royce from the badge on the radiator. Badge on the bottom one might be Alvis. Try a google image search for "1920s alvis cars" for some similar to both middle and bottom.
  19. The holes do look a bit sharp to be bullet or shrapnel holes. Maybe the holes were made deliberately to provide a ‘key’ for a rendering that was to be applied to the stonework and subsequently the rendering has come away? Do you have any other pictures of the building? …or maybe you could find the location on Google street view and get a screen grab of the front of the building. GD
  20. Retain the CAPTCHA grid, but use images from Alamy contributors and pay them £0.50p a click !
  21. Stunning. Is this a Pavlovian social-media response? Do people just see a "create account" box and fill it in? The fact that only 18k on 90k contributors post regularly I understand as many people give up when they get an idea of how much long term effort is needed to create a large diverse portfolio. But 270k who have never sent in a photo is astounding. I don't think Alamy has separate types of accounts for buyers and contributors, or does it ? I have used just one account to submit images and to buy. So those mysterious 270,000 might be buyers but not photographers ! GD

  23. Did the IP attorney give a reason for not contacting the Irish Law Society ? You could maybe email one of the Irish newspapers, Irish Times or Irish Independent. They may not want to follow up the story but they might be able to suggest a way of embarrassing the law firm.
  24. Gallery names... There's limited space on the gallery tab for the gallery name. Although the full name shows in the ALT-TEXT when we hover over the tab, it would be good if we had some options here. Being able to abbreviate the name using apostrophes would be good. Being able to specify an ALT-TEXT that was different from the text displayed in the tab might be useful. Being able to vary the font size used on the gallery tab might be useful.
  25. I think it would be a good idea to make the profile picture optional - and/or, make it so we can position it left or right or central. Central seems the worst option since it gets in the way of the main image that you want people to see.
