  1. How long is overdue? I have one outstanding uncleared sale from 17th November.
  2. And my serge came in today too for a couple of weather news images in December and January (after Storm Caroline)- both IMHO not very good or well processed. But very decent amounts. February sales are almost equal to January so I am happy.
  3. Lots of useful information. I’m glad I asked the question. i don’t think I can (yet anyway) justify the cost of Photomechanic, but I will keep it in mind and maybe try out the trial version. i will pay more attention to being specific about the images in captions I think.
  4. Yes, that’s what I was concerned about. I suppose it depends on whether time is of the essence, as Red Snapper has suggested.
  5. Would like some advice. Is it best for a batch of Live News photos to have the same caption, even if there are different views, not all of which may have the same objects. I used to make the captions specific to each image, but lately have just been keeping them the same, then editing once they go into stock. What’s best, or doesn’t it matter much?
  6. Ha! Pantiles, on the other hand, I think are magic.
  7. Thanks for the fulsome explanation. I will just have to rely on having good saleable images (I certainly have a better idea about this than when I started) and comprehensive tagging. Yes, even with 3 QC stars, images generally pass around 5-6.00pm the next day, or at that time on a Monday if uploaded on a Friday. There have only been one or two instances when they were passed in the morning of the day after upload. I wonder if extra stars are earned from regular uploads, as I generally upload several times a week.
  8. Ok, so I have clearly misunderstood. QC rank is different to Alamyrank? And how does one know what one’s Alamyrank is, or is that hidden?
  9. That’s good to hear. As I have been growing my portfolio fairly quickly over the last year, my CTR has taken a dive, but my rank remains at 3 stars. I get lots of views and reasonably regular zooms, and it does seem that relevant images are appearing reasonably high up in searches.
  10. Weird, because Lothian and Borders Police no longer exists. It’s all Police Scotland, now. So whoever bought it is buying an out of date image.
  11. Wow! Well done. It would be interesting to know what the kinds of licenses for a larger sale like that are. Is it things like calendar, billboard? Then I can dream.
  12. Yes, so much to see. Not sure that my aim of getting through the many photos I took before I go away again soon will work out! I’ll no doubt have just as many photos of Chile and Easter Island.
  13. Nile trip from Luxor, stopping off at places on the way to Aswan. Had been in Jordan before that.
  14. Maybe I should ask people to guess where this was taken. No cheating and looking it up!
  15. You're ahead of me. I was there in October and still not got around to even processing my photos, let alone uploading them.
  16. Exactly so. If you haven’t already got the tag ‘elephant in must’ you can now add it. This is the same elephant as above doing it, too. Another sign I remembered is that they dribble pee (edit: see that’s already been mentioned) Perhaps we shouldn’t have photos of elephants doing that
