  1. Good taste and photojournlism

    It is a little cold down here today Allan. I've been out of touch (blame a Northern woman I met the other day) for 2 days, so now I'm sitting back at my PC, catching up on any interesting threads. Some snow here this morning but it's already nearly all gone. I would have done live weather news but the snow is always a lot worse everywhere else but here, so those are the images the newspapers will choose. Geoff.
  2. I made a rookie error today

    Exactly what I was thinking.
  3. G'day from Oz

    G'day Bruce Mark. Welcome to Alamy. While you're eating lunch with your kangaroos today, have a read of the forums and Alamy's guidelines (if you haven't already) to get an understanding of how it all works here, and ask any questions in the forum. We're mostly a friendly bunch and happy to answer questions. Alamy's contributor Twitter account often posts what images customers are looking for that aren't already on Alamy, and lately there's been a lot of requests for things in Australia. So it maybe worth your while following that if you use Twitter. Good luck, Geoff.
  4. AIM - filters and a search term

    You're welcome, and thank you.
  5. upon adding tags my photos disappeared

    Your images are on sale now in the database, so all seems fine. You possibly had a filter to restrict it to only show images not on sale, and once you tagged them, they'd be considered "on sale". Don't worry about making them go green, it won't help you at all. If you fill out all the optional fields and fully tag/caption the image with only relevant tags, that's all you need to do. Your tags look pretty good, especially for someone new to this. Nice sharp photos too. Geoff.
  6. Re upload of images

    I have kept the old ID's in the past and Alamy have swapped just the image over. I wanted that because, like you say, it could be in a Lightbox, or a client may simply have made a note in an email to their boss. So now I do it manually myself, following the advice to reference the new ID in the caption of the old image, then removing tags and deleting it. A glass of cow juice is on it's way to you Mark. Geoff.
  7. discoverability

    Stupid spam filter! Grrr. I'm so sorry. I'll be sending a response in a few minutes. Geoff.
  8. Looking for a Nikon 500mm f4E

    It was £5489 earlier today, according to the site (which is a great site and always has accurate info, which has helped me many times). A 500mm f4 lens? Wow, I wish I was rich! Even at that discounted price it's over 5K, which is £5000 more than I can spare. Geoff.
  9. current highest IQ cell phone cameras = 1" sensor...?

    I was responding publicly to a public criticism aimed at me, and I did suggest it be resolved in private. After a whole day of quiet, I'm not sure why bring it up again now as it will simply draw more attention to the problem. Him and myself both said out piece and I'd rather leave it at that. Geoff.
  10. Interesting People's Court episode about stealing intellectual propery

    However much people nit-pick, and we all know there's a level of drama with these shows, it's still based on factual law so still an interesting watch. Thanks for posting the link Jill. Geoff.
  11. Image link suggestion (merged from previous thread)

    There is still an "enter code" button (left of the smilies button, and the one that was there has gone) but putting the appropriate code in there doesn't make it work. I tried to get it working in various ways, but couldn't. Geoff.
  12. Deleted

    :o Ok I'll stop.....for now. Happy eating. Geoff.
  13. Favourite images you have uploaded in April 2017

    I spy with my little eye ........ Cheers, Philippe I could barely see them through all the noise. Geoff.
  14. Tagging - British English or American spelling?

    Stemming was discontinued in 2008. Arrr ok, a couple of years before my time. Geoff.
  15. Best practice for keyword phrases in new Image Manager/search.

    Deleted!! Grrrr sorry about all the posts. Every time I edited my post on my phone, it just added another instead. So I had to put the PC back on to sort it out. Never had that happen before. Geoff.
