  1. It could even be a Maine Coon, Edo. The New York Cat-sitter doesn't know! Paulette
  2. I think he does understand now. I think he thought that the 45 days meant an automatic payment after that amount of time. The language problem made it difficult to sort out but I think he's OK now. I suppose he will speak up if I am mistaken. Paulette
  3. I don't know what you mean by "reset". When i look at my Account Balance on my dashboard I can see which sales have been paid to Alamy. If Alamy has not been paid it says "uncleared" in the right hand column. Is that what you are talking about as "reset"? The truth is that some clients take a long time to pay Alamy. I have two sales for a book that are from March 10. These sales are not cleared and I won't get that money until after Alamy has it. Books can be delayed or cancelled and therefore can take a long time to pay. Have you looked at your Account Balance? It is one of the choices on your dashboard. Paulette
  4. That's interesting. I didn't even know that page existed and it mentions personal messages. We don't have them anymore. The problem, Wim, is that I would like to get the notifications that someone has quoted me but lately they have started telling me that someone gave me an up or down or trophy or laughing face or whatever. These just get in the way and are annoying. Paulette
  5. My guess is that you are not using Safari. Dragging and dropping won't work for me and I'm too lazy to move to another browser. I get what I want but I do wonder if I would be able to put up other people's images if I run a Challenge again because I have to do it from my Image Manager. Paulette
  6. Some people can just drag and drop but I use the enlarged image in the image manager and copy the URL. Then when you paste in the URL you can change the "comp" to "zoom"s or the opposite. I can never remember which but it gives you the larger image. I usually prefer the smaller ones because the horizontal images are squished a tiny bit in the larger one. I do change to the larger one for vertical images as they seem to keep the same proportions. Paulette
  7. I also think this is unnecessary. Paulette
  8. I think you mean the caption. Alamy says that sentences are what they want. Paulette
  9. Instructions for the Image Manager are here... https://discussion.alamy.com/topic/7028-instructions-help-video-and-links-for-new-alamy-image-manager/ Paulette
  10. All wonderful. So hard to choose! Paulette
  11. Still at least one survivor and it's being fed. I had the frustrating experience of seeing it go up on my fire escape right in front of my window while I was down in the garden photographing it. I wouldn't have been able to get a good shot from the apartment without scaring it away but it would have been nice to see it so close. Paulette
  12. Steve, I have noticed that you spend a lot of time checking out someone's photos when they ask for advice. I suppose it is possible that you could make sure the person wants editing advice as well as captions, keywords, etc. but I haven't noticed anyone seeming insulted. I am just impressed that you will spend so much time on helping another contributor. Bravo. Paulette
  13. I have a bit of good news and bad news. Nature is so tough! I was worried about our robins nest last night because we had a very fierce storm with buckets of water pouring down and I didn't think the nest was sheltered enough under the fire escapes. This morning the nest is empty and I did see a wee dead body on the cement a distance away. I also saw a live fledgling and saw it fed once. It's looking good and I got some images. I waited a while to see if I might get shots of it being fed but finally gave up. I'll keep and eye out. I couldn't bring myself to take a picture of the dead baby. It's too sad. Those birds can have a hard time surviving. Paulette
  14. I haven't been outside after dark in months.....Is that sad? Or just smart. Paulette
  15. I'd say about 3/4 of the people I see are wearing masks. I pull mine off my nose to breathe as I walk and put it back up as I approach people. I'm getting pretty good at it. Fortunately, the streets aren't that crowded as I do everything I can in the morning and then hole up in my apartment. The people without masks are usually young. All the indoor spaces require masks. Paulette
  16. A report from NYC for you, Edo. Some of the restaurants near me that already had outdoor tables have been allowed to put more out into the parking spaces in front. One place that always seems to do mostly outdoor dining has added plastic partitions between tables. The weather has cooperated so far and I've seen dining going on. A Persian place near me was very actively promoting their take-out during the shutdown and also taking donations for food for the hospitals. That was very lovely, although the cut in income I suffered made me feel like I had no extra money to donate. I only have two or three cat visits a week right now but it looks like picking up in a couple of weeks. Alamy is being good to me these days with a nice payment coming up. My main worry now with the cases of the virus spiking in the South and West is that people here may not be able to travel. Best to stay away from the worrying and just appreciate what I have. I know I am a fortunate person and having a courtyard garden to enjoy has been wonderful. Paulette
  17. My leaping bear also sold today for three figures after two one figure sales.... It's a trend... may it continue... Paulette
  18. I keep the wrist strap on and also have the grip for easier steady holding. Holding steady was my main problem when I got it. Paulette
  19. I am also getting cat-sitting bookings again. Life resumes. Paulette
  20. I got a HAIRCUT... WHOOPIE... NYC is definitely coming to life as we are in the second stage of re-opening. More people on the streets and my neighborhood salon is open. The chairs have always been a decent distance apart and I was happy to see that we didn't have plexiglass partitions. We were all in masks which is weird but I got a great cut as usual. It's not a fancy place... The owner and almost all the staff are Chinese. Most clients have been going there for years and happy to see everyone. The owner and the woman who cuts my hair are both left-handed. I wonder if they need special scissors. Betty can tell us. She's another of those lefty geniuses. Paulette
  21. Since you can make a worm look this beautiful maybe I'd better have you take my picture.. Paulette
  22. I didn't quite get the "anorak" since I thought it was a jacket... but I found this... rather strong but I get your point.. Anorak" /ˈænəræk/ is a British slang term which refers to a person who has a very strong interest, perhaps obsessive, in niche subjects. This interest may be unacknowledged or not understood by the general public. I was mostly kidding around but I have to admit that I cringe at those photos before I start wondering if the only men in the UK are the funny-looking ones. I guess we should be careful not to get carried away with this but I bet most of the guys here are pretty darn good in their attitudes towards women. Just don't start submitting those pics to the Challenge!!!!😁 Paulette
  23. Hmmmmm. I suspect it's a matter of male photographers enjoying the taking pics of scantily clad women. Is that at all possible? Paulette
  24. My leaping bear did it again. Two editorial websites. Money ain't good for those darn websites.... but nice to keep on selling.... Polar Bear in the Svalbard Archipelago Paulette
  25. You don't show any images on sale. Have you done the work in the Image Manager? Paulette
