    Cheers Bryan. Nice to get something out of it as well as a jab.

    Osteospermum for sure - could well be 'Tresco Purple'.  That's a fairly large flowered form but I can't judge the flower size from the photo to be definite.

    Many thanks. It’s in my garden or at least it was before the cold set in.

    Yes including an obvious and known misspelling can make sense - though Alamy doesn't encourage it.


    But not having the correct/mainstream spelling of an important 'Tag' is what constitutes the problem - when we make mistakes without realising and end up burying our pics unintentionally.


    For example, I often misspell Italy through careless typing - it comes out as Itlay. Also I seem to mess up 'environment' quite often. So I have to watch those.


    In starting the thread I thought that people might share common errors so that we could check our own. 



    Edit) 540 come up on Alamy for  "Itlay not italy".


    Might be worth checking in AIM if you have any.

    Even worse, I often type ‘Scoltand’. Have to check every now and again.

    SALLY ANDERSON/ALAMY Sunshine on Leith Edinburgh residents may have reflected on the hope of an Indian summer - can't find it




    Thanks Bryan.

    Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom, 29th September 2020. UK Weather: sunshine on Leith. The sun really does shine on the Water of Leith and on a calm sunny day creates wonderful reflections in the water around The Shore with modern apartment buildings and Victoria Bridge, an old iron swing bridge, reflected in the calm Water of Leith river.

    I'm terrible at tagging - live news pics go into stock without having to have tags so goodness knows how many of my pics aren't tagged...😳

    I think the caption plays a heavy role in the searches so if they are good and accurate then all is not lost. However, I have had to go back over a lot of live news images and take stuff out which is throwing up irrelevant searches. So worth editing the captions at least as they go into stock as the captions one writes for live news are not necessarily the same as are good for stock images..

    Same here, but not for the left/right brain thing. It's because I didn't have LR when I started so I couldn't have, and as I'm unlikely to submit elsewhere I don't think it's too important.

    Anyway, if Ed does it that way, I'm in good company. That's not flattery.

    You can use Alamy Lightroom Bridge though to import your keywords into LR and take it from there. 

  7. A first for me in National Geographic - spotted though not reported yet. Someone please tell me why they chose this image though when I had others without the cutoff background. I'm not even sure why I uploaded it except it was a nice low angle.



    Edit: I guess this ought to have been in 'Have you found any..." rather than sales since it is not yet reported.

  9. Very sorry indeed to hear the news, Colin. 

    My 3:

     A boat that has seen better days


    A broken tricycle in Mongolia



    The Tsar’s Bell, in the Kremlin, made so big it could never be used as it cracked. A lot of patience required to wait for all of the tourists taking selfies in front of it to remove themselves
