  1. This makes sense to me. I would think that there is a strong argument against taking down images unless they are flawed. In my day job I interact with the other side of the picture desk, selecting images that will be used to illustrate print articles. It is useful to have a good selection to fit the crop (horizontal vs vertical, and over 1, 2 or 3 columns) as well as the placement on the page (ie drawing the eye left or right into the page). I find it most useful when my pic desk gives me a lot of options, even if many of them are similar. The caveat to all of this is that my picture-taking skills have a long way to go and I still don't have a great sense of what sells in stock.
  2. Ed's point is a great one and a lesson I still need to absorb. Ed, I just looked at your portfolio and it really is alive with strong and striking images that jump out. Thanks for sharing.

  4.

  5. Hi all Just an update from Alamy CR as follows, so it seems they are on the case: "We’ve heard back from our team about the below use and this particular customer reports uses every 6 months so this will be reported an billed before the end of February."
  6. Thanks all for the useful feedback. I've alerted Alamy and I'll let you know how it pans out.
  7. Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and a healthy and happy new year.
  8. Hi all I've a quick question on rights. Alamy sold the following RM image (HYAFH6) a year ago for "Usage: Presentation or newsletters, Use in a presentation/talk (eg,Powerpoint and Keynote) or in a newsletter." I see it has been used by the UN in a print magazine and online. https://www.un.org/africarenewal/magazine/august-november-2018/trading-while-caring-people-and-planet Is this within their rights and is it worth my time to try to enforce and infringement? I'm a little annoyed that after Alamy's cut I walked away with the price of a London pint. Thanks
  9. Thanks Betty and Ilya This makes thr decison much easier. Now to find a decent used one.
  10. Hi all I'm sure there are many people on the Fuji forums who would love to answer this in great detail. But I was hoping I would get a reasonably practical set of responses here. I'm switching to the Fuji system as I bought a used X100s and love it and have just found a used X-T1. As much as I would love to get a full set of primes for it, I suspect a reasonably versatile zoom would work best for me (I travel a lot in some rough parts of Africa as a print journalist, but like to take photos on the side). The 18-135 has a lot of reach, even if it is a little bit slow on both ends. Has anyone used it and do you have a view on IQ and how it would pass master with QC here? Thanks in advance
  11. This is my first year here. 12 sales for $278. Still trying to learn the ropes but encouraged to keep putting in effort.
