  1. Alamy-Lightroom Bridge. It's brilliant, but not very easy to get to grips with. https://www.lightroom-plugins.com/AlamyIndex.php Not sorted my problem yet but will need to wait until the next news upload to try again.
  2. I recently found several copies of a photo on Pinterest that had appeared in The Guardian. There is a copyright infringement form that you can complete to request that they remove it. I did that and got a positive response the next day. Form is here if anyone is interested https://www.pinterest.co.uk/about/copyright/dmca-pin/ and their policy here https://policy.pinterest.com/en/copyright
  3. Aye , I did that but it still failed. It seems to be a question of where the caption and headline are put.
  4. Hi, yes I did and I had both caption and headline filled in but still got error message that IPTC wasn't completed correctly and needed News put in somewhere. But I think I need to try what GSImages has suggested.
  5. I have been using this great add on to upload stock photos for a while now, but tried to do so for Live News for the first time yesterday. I couldn't work out how to do it, and got an upload error message saying that an IPTC field needed to be set to NEWS in each of the photos. i haven't been able to work out exactly where this field is, but I'm sure someone here will be able to enlighten me. Is it in the default fields list or the Bridge Alamy/Alamy Plus list?
  6. Thing I find annoying is when you miss out variations of words eg birdwatcher, bird watcher sign post, signpost lamp post, lamppost et etc
  7. The important thing, I find, is to look at the searches for your images and pick up on any terms that haven't been applied to photos you know ought to have been included. I have added quite a few missed search terms as a result.
  8. No credits given and photos cropped but one of mine which was sold in May is here, so there may be others. https://www.citycentremuraltrail.co.uk/murals/murallist
  9. A great theme for this month. But difficult to choose only 3 photos! However, my favourite is these Jackass penguins who had just come out of the sea at Simon's Town in South Africa, and obligingly lined up in a row to preen their feathers. Here is my step-grandson playing on the beach at North Berwick. He has hemiplegia and is the youngest person in UK I believe to wear a snazzy carbon fibre brace that allows him great movement And finally an iconic view of the Bass Rock and Craigleith Island in the Firth of Forth
  10. Being relatively new to Alamy, I do not understand the intricacies of any of these (despite doing some research) and would value advice and opinions from those more familiar with Alamy. At present I am opted out of all of them and only opted into Image Options. Is there more information somewhere than the brief stuff that Alamy provides? What are the pros and cons of each of these? For a new contributor, who isn't a professional photographer, these things are not necessarily obvious.
  11. National Museum of Scotland forthcoming family day out event Wheels and Wings Event 24 September 2017 National Museum of Flight, East Fortune, EH39 5LF photos from the 2016 event. (How do you post them as thumbnails?) More photos of this event available http://www.alamy.com/search/lightbox/2525691.html
  12. Woohoo, first time I've put up photos for this, so thank you for choosing one of mine.
  13. Just had my first one. I was waiting to see if I got one before deciding whether to change my settings to take this option off my collection. I know we cant second guess why someone might want a particular photo, but I cant even guess what the one of Stephen Fry and Elliott Spencer in the Royal Box at Centre Court plus othreally folk would be used for.
  14. Ok, thanks for all the useful information. Still not quite sure which one might be better, but it seems different options might suit different people.
  15. As a UK based person I don't want dollars. Presumably therefore the payment option I choose makes a big difference.
  16. Ok, so the plot thickens. Does it therefore make a difference how one opts to be paid? PayPal, if I understand it, is a US company. Does this make a difference to payments versus a direct UK bank transfer? If so, then I need to change my payment option.
  17. Ok, so I have to own up to not having (yet) been paid, though once recent sales clear, I will be. So, are we paid in Sterling after a conversion of some kind, or do we have to pay a fee for PayPal to convert from dollars to Sterling? In which case, the question is why a UK company does this.
  18. This may be a naive question, but I haven't seen it answered anywhere else. Since Alamy is a U.K. Company (as far as I understand it), why are we paid in dollars (especially given the current poor exchange rate)?
  19. It's possible to change the setting not to allow personal use, but when you do this it says that it will be applied to all future photos. So there doesn't seem to be a way to change it for photos already uploaded, without doing it individually for each photo, or is there ?
  20. Usually it's updated daily. Recently it's updated around 8.00 am. It does not appear to have been updated since yesterday am: Last Updated on : 19 Jul 2017 07:23 GMT Anyone know if there is a reason for this?
