  1. They've left off "Sales History" which is always the first thing I check. Paulette
  2. I think we would call that a "smart a.." remark on this side of the pond. Paulette
  3. I looked into it once and there were a couple of possibilities but neither organization replied to my emails. Sorry, I can't remember what they were or how I found them. Paulette
  4. I wonder why we have managed to lose that part of our British inheritance. Bars are usually so awful. The only alcohol I am likely to consume is a Mexican beer or a Guinness (which I consider food.). Paulette
  5. I don't know why but "pub" sounds better to me than "bar". I can imagine spending some time in a pub. I avoid bars. Paulette
  6. Beautiful images. I'm not usually a fan of landscapes but yours captivate me. Paulette
  7. Oh good. Glad to be of help and thanks for letting us know. Sometimes questioners just disappear. Another way to add the tags is to hit the Enter or Return key on your keyboard. Paulette
  8. It sounds like you may have missed something. The space for the caption doesn't show until you click "add caption" in blue on the right. If you have done that and 5 or 6 tags you should be OK. Does the image manager show it as being on sale? The line underneath the thumbnail will be red if you haven't done everything. If it is orange or green there is just a slow time in the updates. That happens sometimes. Paulette
  9. Red River Paper sent this warning about people having trouble printing after upgrading to Catalina.... https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/FMfcgxwDrlRLFJpkSvjpnFMLxvFbFchL Paulette
  10. I have photos here shot with the original RX100. Not having a viewfinder is a frustration in bright light but if you happen to have a Hoodman loupe for looking at the back of a DSLR https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1353036-REG/hoodman_h30mb_hoodloupe_3_0_outdoor_loop.html it is actually possible to fasten it on for excellent viewing of the back screen. Paulette
  11. I'm an idiot about the technical issues but I found a practical way to look at the brightness of my images at the beginning when I thought they looked dull next to other images on the page. I would compare an image I was working on with one I liked on Alamy. Now I am better at judging my own but still sometimes do it if I'm not sure. Brightness seems to be so much a judgment thing. Paulette
  12. I must say I am very proud to be among such amazing photographers. I was pretty unsure of myself at first and when I made the final 8 a couple of times I gained confidence. I learned a lot when I was picking the final 8 for the challenges I did. Paulette
  13. Is that true even for people who were members of Alamy at the time it started? I honestly can't remember if I needed to do it right away. I know I did it and recommended that a friend who wasn't on Alamy get on right away so she would get the 40%. I don't do it extensively and I've only had two sales but they netted $51.25 total so not worse than Alamy. Anyway, if a long-time member of Alamy wants to think about Stockimo I think they should check with Alamy about what the commission would be. Paulette
  14. Living where I do, you'd think I'd have urban images but this is the best I can do. The first one was taken in the Bronx at least.... Reflections of flowers and foliage in a pond. Small boat harbor in Homer, Alaska Giant Waterlilies, Victoria Amazonica, in Brazil Paulette
  15. Good for you. I think I learned a lot by doing a challenge. Picking the 8 finalists was an education as I had to figure out which images were "best". I think it has helped me with my own images. I also see this as a chance to showcase images I particularly like. I chose subjects that allowed me to give "examples" using some of my favorite images. Paulette
  16. Colin, you had better find out if both the runners-up are willing to do the next Challenge before going to the trouble of setting up another poll. Paulette
  17. Stockimo is more separate than you might realize, Edo. Everything is done on the phone. You upload with the phone and you keyword on the phone. Also, only those of us who signed up at the beginning get more than 20% of the income. I think the "style" of the photos is different too though I'm not so sure about how true that is. Much less difference, it seems to me, in the Live News photos. Paulette
  18. Or at least let us know after you win that it will need to pass to someone else. Paulette
  19. This drives me crazy. I do a lot of animals and hate to see their toes cropped off. It is a good idea to leave extra room just generally, I think. I tend to crop right in and have had to learn to give some space around the animal. The user can always crop in but they can't add space where they might want it. Paulette
