  1. It is nasty of the hospitals to send a bill before the insurance has kicked in. In the cancer support group I attended we had to calm each other down as we waited. After a while, the bill would go away or be greatly reduced but there was great unneeded anxiety. Paulette
  2. A word of encouragement about your heart. A friend of mine had a massive heart attack when he was in his 50s. His wife was told to put their affairs together because he wasn't going to make it. He is now 90 years old. Much life lies ahead... Paulette
  3. I don't know whether it is the case now but it used to be that in order to get the standalone Lightroom you had to begin by buying the subscription and then in the process there was a choice for the standalone before you paid. They were definitely hiding it but it was there. Paulette
  4. Alamy usually responds very quickly. Did you at least get the automated response that would tell you they got your email? Paulette
  5. That looks like a submission from an agency. Are you sure you have not put that image with the agency? Paulette
  6. I think you guys should meet at the Alamy stall. Too obvious, I guess, for anyone to think of it. Paulette
  7. You are doing the right thing. A small number of relevant keywords will serve you better than trying to reach the deceptive "discoverability". We think Alamy has made a mistake with that measurement. Irrelevant keywords will harm you. My method for finding words I may not have thought of is to simply look at what other contributors have put on their images of the same subject. You won't want to copy but you may find some gems. Paulette
  8. I had a zoom today on my bloody little polar bear. I've always found him adorable but doubted anyone would buy him. We shall see. I am enjoying all of your entries. I already have many more than 8 favorites. Paulette
  9. Thank you, Maria. That seems to work for me in Safari. Very useful since I make a Lightbox when I am picking the finalists. Paulette
  10. I once had a personal sale of an image and then two months later one other from the series of the same subject was sold for the rear cover of a book. I figured the personal sale may have been by the author. The fee for the book was a lovely $345. So let's hope something similar is going on for you. Paulette
  11. Why don't you test it. Note the position of an image in a search and then add it to the caption. Wait 24 hours for the update and then see if it has moved. Paulette
  12. Whoa, Kumar. A lot of feathers in that pic. Paulette
  13. I expose all the way to the right and Lightroom can be incredible at bringing back detail if I have blown it out. Paulette
  14. And after only 6 months. I think it took me a year and a half. Paulette
  15. I know NOTHING about software but this doesn't make sense to me. If Safari used to work and now doesn't after they changed the software it is likely that it has something to do with their software. No? Expert opinions appreciated. Nothing to do about it probably and I do have Firefox. Safari is not some odd little browser that no one has. It comes with Macs and computer-challenged old folks like me probably just stick with it. Anyway, Alamy did step up to answer the question and I appreciate that. Paulette
  16. I posted about this problem in the section of the forum called "The Forum" and I have received an email from someone at Alamy I haven't encountered before. She is passing on information about this problem to the people who make the forum and will get back to me. So I think if we have problems specifically with the forum it is worth reporting them in that section. I must say I'm still not accustomed to these different sections. Paulette
  17. So beautiful. I don't think I'll see any of those in NYC. Our bugs are pretty ugly. Paulette
  18. Take a look at your Account Balance on your dashboard. It will probably say that sale is "uncleared". The client has not paid Alamy yet. When it clears you will get your money. Unlike other agencies Alamy reports our sales as they happen. Paulette
  19. A two-minute piece on National Public Radio..... https://www.npr.org/2019/03/10/701987063/all-hipsters-dont-look-the-same-ok Paulette
  20. Thank you, Marianne. I figured I wasn't alone but it's reassuring to see it so nicely expressed. Paulette
  21. It seems that many of us are having trouble posting our images. Depending on the browser (I guess) the drag and drop doesn't want to work for many. If we cannot right-click on an image to copy it or copy the address there seems no way to post it. I've been doing it from the Image Manager for my own images but when it is time to vote for the Challenge I'm not sure I'll be able to post the images belonging to other contributors. I'm using Safari on a Mac. Paulette
