  2. Alamy measures

    I suspect that the tech people at Alamy are buried in work getting set for the new and more complicated commission structure. Fixing Measures is not likely to be a big priority under the circumstances. I don't remember such a long period without Measures in the past but I understand how it could be happening now. Paulette
  3. Hello from Istanbul

    That is very interesting and I would include that in your caption and also perhaps in a longer version in "additional information." The article Wim linked to should give you some keywording ideas. I wouldn't have thought of "feral birds." This is a really wonderful film about parrots in San Francisco ... https://www.pbs.org/video/independent-lens-the-wild-parrots-of-telegraph-hill-trailer/ Paulette
  4. Hello from Istanbul

    You have a very impressive portfolio. I think you will do well. I am going to criticize the green parrots. I assume they are not native birds so the story would be to find out what they are including the Latin name. Then the caption should include the fact that they are probably birds brought in as pets. Are there many of them? Are they a pest? I also would not put "closeup" in the keywords. You don't have a close-up and if someone is just looking for that kind of bird yours would not likely be good enough. They are only likely to be used for a story about animals brought in as pets.

  5. February 2019 Challenge: "What is Love?"

    I go from AIM because I like the size better from there. I enlarge the image, right-click and copy image. Then I paste it into the post. I know some people are still able to drag and drop but I don't know where they begin. Paulette
  6. This looked like useful information for heaven's sake. A red arrow? Don't stop your valuable comments, please. Paulette
  7. Odd Alamy Measures

    I can't get anything after Feb 6. Paulette
  8. They may have had their submissions rejected. If their camera is not suitable they might just give up. Occasionally someone introduces themselves and seems to think it is just a forum to talk photography. Some people have time on their hands and are lonely. Paulette

  11. Poor Discoverablity

    Location field is not searchable. You need to put it in captions and tags. Paulette
  12. 500 sales

    It also looks like you haven't uploaded anything new for a while. Just sitting back and collecting the fruits of your labor? Paulette

    Congratulations, Michael. You see, you could indeed beat the cute baby animals! Paulette
  14. Poor Discoverablity

    You also have "Chiang May Railway Market" on some images that are not a market. Incorrect information can do a lot of harm. Don't forget you need to deselect an image before moving to the next one or the information will carry over. One of the worst things about our image manager. Paulette

  16. LOW AS WE CAN GO?

    NU means Novel Use and I suspect you have the same website that I have had. I've had two of them. I'm going to opt out in April because I just don't see that sort of sale as novel use. The app use in perpetuity seems particularly awful. Paulette

    I think the night mode only makes jpegs. Might be the same with other special modes. Paulette

    Go to Attributes on the filter bar and scroll down. It is towards the bottom. Paulette
  19. Non Exclusive check box

    When I checked I found I had done them all but it showed me all my failed submissions. So sad. But I have definitely improved. None were recent. Paulette

    All these images make me happy! Thanks for including my upside down bear cub. Paulette

    Thank you, Edo. I have to go out to feed a little cat named Biscuit but I'm going to wait a couple of hours until the temperature gets out of the single digits. Paulette

    Allan, I have not used FTP for Alamy but I've found Fetch very user-friendly on my Mac. Paulette
