  1. Yes thanks Harry I did mean 2000. So my thinking is sound then. It just seems a shame to reduce what was a 40M image to a piddly 2M. But then perhaps they will ask for an original once I am chosen as the winner (which is a cert, obviously 😉). And comparing them on my screen they look the same anyway.
  2. Hi Gurus. So I am going to enter the Lens Culture Portrait Awards 2020. The rules state: In Lightroom, I select Long Edge and choose 200 pixels. When I export this the image is reduced to just over 2MB. I started out just exporting it to be under 10MB, but with the "longest side" rule, the image size is now much smaller. Should I be worried? My concern is that this reduces the image resolution and quality. Does it? Or is there a better way to do this?Insert image from URL Thank you, DJ
  3. I have been to NYC twice in the past few years and Spanish Harlem / Bronx always has lots going on. Its an endless procession on a Sunday and the vibes were very friendly.
  4. Yes sorry everyone, in my haste hit the T not the W My course teacher has apparently been in touch with Alamy and I am hopefully going to get something from him tonight. Then I can start earning 100% of nothing rather than 40% of nothing!
  5. Hello All I have been a regular member/contributor to Alamy for a couple of years. I am not enrolled on a photography course (part time) at the local adult college. Someone has suggested this might quality me a "student". I understand Alamy pays 100% to those registered as students. Does anyone know if its possible to update one's account to a student account? (I have made almost zero sales and so I am not that sure this will ever help me, but thought it worth a try) Thanks DJ
  6. Harry, Matt, Ed, Mark: Wow thanks to all for your considerations I really appreciate it, all of it. I had zero experience of web design a month ago. I worked hard for a month on this and I took advice from lots of people, including this forum. Thanks to Mark Chapman who helped me a lot when I needed it with my camera and Lightroom. David.
  7. Hello Both. It has been a while since I needed to make some changes to the site. I have taken on board your comments and hopefully the improvements are there to be seen. Thanks.
  8. Hi Gurus I have just finished putting together my site https://fotoscopic.com/ If anyone cares to take a look i would really appreciate the feedback many thanks.
  9. Just realised that LR will add copyright for you anyway so its all done by The Machines
  10. Hello All As well as submitting to Alamy I am about to start sending some images to try and get them published elsewhere. What advice does anyone have in terms of how best to protect my copyright? I was about to use PS to add copyright information into the metadata of each file. Is that enough? Since I know with Lightroom I can also add a watermark. But is watermarking necessary if adding metadata information? Is it overkill? Does it somehow make your images less likely to be noticed or looked at? Or should I consider watermarking as part of protecting
  11. I have spoken to them but they dont know who I am - as soon as they offered to "take me through it" I suddenly had an urgent meeting to attend
  12. I would have thought that the definition of "professional" should be better tuned. Unlike other contributors but similar to many here, I submit images to Alamy all the time but the paltry amount I have received (£150 in maybe two years) hardly defines me as a Pro. But I will pay up anyway, as in the next few weeks there is a much higher chance of things going wrong when I start my trip.
