  1. Hmmmm. I wonder what happened. This takes me to the preview page. Did you start from the Image Manager? Did you choose "Insert image from URL" in the Insert other media menu? Did the address seem to copy correctly? When i do it on my image the address looks like this... https://n1.alamy.com/zooms/e0ed031a-b5d9-4100-a44a-4945193776b4/P9JWNJ.jpg Paulette
  2. I have to do that too, Betty, even if I'm in my dashboard. Are people seeing it elsewhere? I have it on my bookmark bar so i wouldn't have known about the change if it hadn't been for this thread. Paulette
  3. Sometimes I have enlarged my view and in that case the show all doesn't show. Paulette
  4. Go to the image in image manager. Enlarge it and right-click. Choose copy image address. In the Forum choose Insert other media and copy the image address. You can also right-click for the address in a lightbox. Paulette
  5. Presentation sale... Berkshire pig lying in mud. Paulette
  6. My bank charges nothing for Alamy payments but they did charge me for DACs payments when I was doing my own. Something about the method used by the payer. I think it depends on the bank and I am charged almost no fees at all because I have enough direct deposits to be exempt from fees. Paulette
  7. Aha. We are at cross purposes. I wasn't referring to PayPal at all. I thought if she gets her social security deposited into a US bank the Alamy payment could go there too. Perhaps not. Just an idea. Paulette
  8. I got the email, Betty, but I don't do my own claims anymore. Paulette
  9. I get my payment at JPMorgan Chase. Since her social security check goes into a US bank I'm not sure I get your point. Paulette
  10. So you can't have Alamy pay into the same bank where you get your social security check? Paulette
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. That contributor has five million images here????? Whoa. What's up??? Paulette
  17. It is a surfer. It's clearer in some of the other images. I think "sorfist" is an error. Paulette
  18. Unless you have put your name in the keywords your images will not show up unless you do an advanced search. Paulette
  19. Jeff hasn't posted for a long time. Don't know why. Paulette
  20. 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
  21. You have some wonderful fly photos. Are you familiar with the work of Catherine Chalmers?https://www.catherinechalmers.com/#/houseflies-1/ Paulette
  22. It doesn't want to work with Safari. I did mine with Firefox. Paulette
  23. 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
  24. 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
