  1. One ruling for our side.... https://www.pdnonline.com/photography-business/copyright-law/court-reverses-misguided-fair-use-ruling-restores-order-for-photo-copyrights/?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=PDN Newswire Newsletter 050219 (1)&utm_content= Paulette
  2. How wonderful, Michael. I love the people who put themselves in harms way to keep us safe. Your daughter sounds wonderful. And your girlfriend did an excellent acting job in that photo. She supplied the emotion. Congratulations on your win. Paulette
  3. I would suggest you post this in the section called Portfolio Critique. If you can post images at a place like Dropbox people will give you advice on them. Alamy will have told you the reason for each rejection. Paulette
  4. The grip just adds a small bump for your fingers. Otherwise you just have a flat, smooth surface. It does help in holding the camera steady. The steadiness is a bit of a difficulty with this tiny camera. The larger DSLRs are actually easier in that respect for me. Paulette
  5. Wildlife is difficult. I like this one....T4PRGA. I see the bird clearly without the background directly behind it being distracting. I would suggest being more selective in which ones you post and crop some of them so the bird appears larger. Do that without eliminating all the possible copy space. Some could use work in post processing to lift the shadows perhaps. It is not an easy area to get sales and I think the "behavior" ones work better for articles about the animals. Compare your images with others on the page. That can be discouraging because some of the best wildlife photographers are here and their work is often spectacular. Unfortunately, that is who we are competing with but we can learn by looking at their work. Paulette
  6. That contributor has five million images here????? Whoa. What's up??? Paulette
  7. It is a surfer. It's clearer in some of the other images. I think "sorfist" is an error. Paulette
  8. Unless you have put your name in the keywords your images will not show up unless you do an advanced search. Paulette
  9. Jeff hasn't posted for a long time. Don't know why. Paulette
  10. Pets are property. You can still submit them but state that there is property in the image and you do not have a release. Or get a property release so you can say you have one. Paulette
  11. You have some wonderful fly photos. Are you familiar with the work of Catherine Chalmers?https://www.catherinechalmers.com/#/houseflies-1/ Paulette
  12. It doesn't want to work with Safari. I did mine with Firefox. Paulette
  13. I am very impressed by your work and I am sure you will get sales. It takes a long time for them to show up on Alamy. I don't know if these images are also on sale elsewhere for small fees but if they are that will hurt you. There is some controversy about whether buyers shop around but I think some do. Paulette
  14. We are not supposed to discuss this "other" version of Alamy on this forum but here it is... https://www.stockimo.com By the way, your share of any sales will be higher here on Alamy. Paulette
  15. You have run into a very common mistake in the Image Manager. You didn't unselect the bridge so that caption and tags went on all the images. Good captions and tags are essential if you want any sales. That is how people find your images. Look carefully at the Alamy instructions and also pay attention to what other contributors are doing. I think you have a nice sense of composition but post processing will help make your images more eye-catching. I know there is a lot to learn. Just take it one step at a time. Paulette

    Hi from Cascais

    Excellent varied portfolio. Welcome to the forum. Paulette
  17. OMG. I'm not even going to think about it. A number of you guys have yours private, you know. I can't see them so maybe something you want to change. (Not just for me). Paulette
  18. Then your problem is with your OCD. Be strong. You can do it. Ignore the #$%^^&&*** thing. Paulette
  19. I don't see the Alamy site there. I go right to the Alamy site and the message is at the very top of the page. I ignore it. I'm assuming you are not allowed to continue unless you click it. Am I right?? Paulette
  20. Thank you for including my Maasai woman. So many wonderful images. Paulette
  21. I ignore the notice except on my iPhone where I seem to need to click it. Can you not get in unless you accept them? Paulette
  22. I love your frogs. You should put the scientific name in all your flora and fauna. People do search that way. Paulette
