  1. I'm careful myself but not as knowledgable as you are so I shall follow in your footsteps. Paulette
  2. I just looked at my MacBook Air and the firewall was off. I have turned it on. Now all my problems will be officially your fault. 🙄 Paulette
  3. I love books. I still prefer paper to read and hold in my hand but I have found some advantages to reading on my iPhone6+. When traveling with a friend I can read in bed without turning on a light. It is also easy to hold the phone in bed even if it is a very long book and would be bulky in paper. I hate to mark up a book but I feel quite free to highlight in my phone and that helps me to remember character names and things I want to discuss in my book group. My shelves are full of books and I need to send some on to the library so I can buy more! Paulette
  4. Old tin kettle with bullet holes Aerial View over Sand Dunes in Sossusvlei, Nabib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia, Africa Open door to a room full of sand in Kolmanskop, a ghost mining town in Namibia, Africa. Paulette
  5. I think it was my entry in "The Good Life" challenge. Love those bears! Paulette
  6. I remember last time that happened you were adding something unacceptable to your file names. Have you been doing something new lately? Paulette
  7. Distributor sale for a magazine in Italy.... Grizzly Bear in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, USA Paulette
  8. Proof that Alamy doesn't look at our keywords when accepting images. Surely if they are going to spotlight someone they should pay some attention though. I just looked at one image and keywords are full of inaccuracies. Paulette
  9. I object strongly to the whole red arrow business so I have given you green ones to even things out in your "reputation". some red arrow people object to that but I think they should just speak up rather than firing anonymously. Alamy thinks the red arrows help to keep us from falling into huge fights and I must say the old forum was much less friendly than this one. Paulette
  10. Calendar sale... Mother polar bear with cub in the Svalbard Archipelago Paulette
  11. Probably here if you are looking for it.... https://theculturetrip.com Paulette
  12. Your experience with writing articles should help you. I would have said the bobbins would sell to someone doing an article and, indeed, you used them. Special knowledge is valuable here, in my opinion. Paulette
  13. You will need to be careful in doing your captions and keywords. When you finish with an image you have to deselect it before moving on to your next one or you will have a mis-labeled image. I looked to see what the colorful bird was and it has a caption saying it is a white pelican. So after doing your pelican you didn't deselect the pelican. It will very likely take a long time and many images to make a sale. No quick money here, I'm afraid. Paulette
  14. Thank you for including mine. I've always liked that one. Paulette
  15. We didn't have the ability to mark images as editorial until recently and I doubt that everyone has gone back and done it on older images so there are a lot here not so marked. Paulette
  16. I suffer from extreme envy when I see where some of you live. Enjoy! Paulette
  17. You obviously have special knowledge in this area and that would give you an advantage if you shoot specifically to these issues. Yours could be the only images available for the subject if someone is writing about it. Paulette
  18. I really admire your work. It is beautiful and I think it will sell eventually. I don't do the sort of subjects you have but I suspect the textile images will be more likely to be useful to someone writing an article. Even better would be to include people using the machines. My sales on Alamy are for magazines and newspapers with the occasional book and a couple of greeting cards. When you are deciding on subjects think in terms of subjects in magazines and books. Watch the forum for images we report having sold and you should get an idea. You haven't been here long and have very few images. It always takes much longer here than on the microstock sites. Paulette
  19. There is a new shingles vaccine that is given in two doses. It is worth watching for if it isn't available yet there. Some aftereffects that feel like mild flu for a couple of days. It is more effective than the old vaccine. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/shingles/public/shingrix/index.html I don't know if there are age restrictions. Paulette
  20. Hooray. Mine has arrived. A bit less than last year but the added German money brings it to a bit more. Paulette
  21. Last year it said .....Other income........DACS Payment..... Nothing this year. Maybe tomorrow..... Boo hoo.... Someone is allergic to cats. Paulette
  22. Nothing for me yet. Boo Hoo. Must be coming. I am a good kitty. Paulette
