  1. For a book... F39W0C Male Greater Kudu in Namibia, Africa Paulette
  2. Yep. Only shows me to me. Not you. Paulette
  3. I'm sorry we won't get to see your photos. Two of your three passed. Do you really think it is hopeless? They only judge on technical quality and sometimes it is really frustrating to have an image you love not make the grade. Paulette
  4. You can try again. You will fail even if only one image is rejected. They will tell you why it failed and you can either correct the problem or submit the others again with a fresh image. It is a learning experience. I failed my first submission and had other failures my first year. Now I know what to look for and it is easier to just move forward. Paulette
  5. QC means quality control. I don't get the number 3 but I would guess that it is a special QC for your first submission. After the first one not all of your images will be examined. Paulette
  6. I have been having these periodic problems for a long time. Right now I am OK after clearing the cache and deleting ALL of my history. That creates annoyances. You can email CR and give them the version of Safari and Mac operating system you are using and ask that they look into it. They also ask for a screenshot of what is happening but I should think saying the log in page comes back should be sufficient. I agree that it's ridiculous that Safari has repeated problems. It's not like no one uses it. Paulette
  7. been awhile

    One of your robins is on a stand and the other is on the ground. Same caption for both? A month is not a long time here. Perhaps you will never like this agency but if you want to try you'll have to put in more effort and be prepared to accept some advice. Paulette

    Thank you. I do love, love, love the animals. Paulette
  9. Edo in San Miguel de Allende

    Yes, she can do very well with that. Even better, of course, if she can get an 80-400 which is what I use most of the time. I have plenty of images I shot with the 70-300 and if she ever gets close to the animals she will prefer that one. Before I started going to see the animals in the wild I liked to shoot everything very close, My first experience was with the beautiful big brown bears in Brooks Falls. I immediate discovered I needed to do "environmental" shots that put the animals in their home (since I didn't want to walk right up to them).. It's a different way of composing and can be wonderful to play around with. Mostly she should always take the time to stop shooting and look and appreciate without the camera in front of her face. Africa is wonderful and I probably won't get back there again so I envy her. Paulette
  10. How long for payments to clear?

    Mine was a stock image. Maybe not The Sun. Maybe a different paper but it was the same day as yours. Paulette
  11. How long for payments to clear?

    Yep. That newspaper sale from Dec. 22 has cleared at last. Paulette
  12. Favourite images uploaded - May 2018

    Oooohhh. That is fabulous. Paulette

    I had a newspaper sale also on that date and I notified contributor services last week. They thanked me for the heads up and said they were turning it over to their credit control team. Paulette
  15. Multiple Delete Function for AIM

    Yes, I agree. That is one of the many things about this image manager that are maddening. Just having to read what I have in little boxes slows me down. The care I have to take in merging keywords so I don't wind up with a nonsense phrase and have to delete it and start over. Not being able to copy and paste but having to click on faded tags when I want to use keywords from an older image. Having to click "Add Caption" instead of just having a box where I can immediately start typing. Having the first part of the location disappear as I type so I can't see the whole thing until I'm done. It goes on and on and I know I only hurt myself by not uploading as often but I dread the darn thing. The old image manager also used to tell me when I had forgotten to put something in attributes. This one has me needing to proofread everything. It's a disaster as far as I"m concerned and it looks like we are stuck with it no matter what we say about it. Paulette
