    I still have it. Paulette
  2. Post your positive results in 2019 here! :)

    I like "cleared" and "uncleared". I tended to forget what the symbols stood for since my brain interpreted o as being zero and therefore not good. Or do I have it confused again? Paulette
  3. The Pros and Cons of Culling Our Collections

    The only reason I see to do it is if an image you hate is the one that always comes up first for in a search for a subject. Then maybe get rid of it? Otherwise, I'd say keep everything. Paulette
  4. artwork, context, and exclusivity

    Yes, I think the word "exclusive" is confusing a lot of people. We are saying an image is exclusively available on Alamy. Not that the client is getting some sort of exclusive rights. Paulette
  5. Images sold in January

    Thank you, John. Zoos can present some good opportunities. It's not the way I would ordinarily compose that shot but there was something on the left I had to keep out of the shot. It leaves some nice copy space on the right so not necessarily a bad thing to need to make adjustments. Paulette
  6. artwork, context, and exclusivity

    You can pick more than one submission at a time as long as there are no more than 500 images. Or maybe I'm not understanding what you are doing. I ticked all of my images very quickly with my small portfolio. Paulette
  7. Yes and yes. We aren't even supposed to talk about ST.........O here. They are keeping them separate. Paulette
  8. I love your images. I hope you don't mind hearing some advice about captions and keywords. I would suggest being more factual. Include scientific names for sure. "Cute critters" might not be helpful though I have found "funny animals" can be. Take a look at the frog images here. Zoom the ones you think are best and look at the captions and keywords. It will give you an idea of what is wanted here. Forgive me if I seem intrusive but I like your work a lot and think you can do more to get it found in searches. Paulette
  9. Dry January

    This title of this thread actually made me laugh. I have to conclude that Alex Ramsay usually has lots and lots of sales. I will take that as good news. Paulette
  10. Dry January

    It's only January 11th. Take heart! Paulette
  11. Images sold in January

    I can't complain about how this year started but now I've had another of those ridiculous novel use sales. This description does not sound like a novel use to me.....

Keel-billed Toucan in the Central Park Zoo, New York City, USA I am at Alamy because I don't want to sell for microstock prices. I am definitely opting out of novel use in April. Paulette

    $204 sale for a museum display. Paulette
  13. Commission Change announced in email

    I received an answer from Alamy about Fine Art America... This is fine as long as you are signed up for print/product sales only and not stock licences; FAA does have a stock option so you will need to make sure they are not available for that if you want to remain on FAA and be exclusive on Alamy. So it is as we thought. Now I shall spend some time marking my images as only available on Alamy. Paulette
  14. I agree but I emailed them just to be absolutely certain. Paulette
  15. Thanks for this. I did it much more awkwardly in the thread Commission Change announced in email. Perhaps we should all try to stay on this thread. I did email Alamy about Fine Art America and will let you know what they said. Paulette
