    Thank you Sally. Irrelevant tags etc is exactly what i’m getting. I’m sure it was a silly mistake on my part, i was assuming because only one photo at a time was highlighted (blue box ) then thats all i was editing. Will look again and do as you say. Much appreciated 👍

    No problem. Of course, you can avoid many of these problems if you keyword in Lightroom and then use Alamy Lightroom Bridge to link between the two.

  2. You need to ‘deselect’ what you’ve just edited before editing others. There is a clear selection arrow at the top of the middle panel on AIM (Alamy Image Manager). Or, just make sure that only those images with a blue tick are the ones you want to edit. It’s a trap all newbies fall into. Same goes for tagging. You can end up with a logo of irrelevant tags if you don’t deselect.

    I guess it would primarily be for showcasing my photos, not necessarily to sell, it's only something i’ve recently considered noticing most photographers have them. Just something simple and elegant that i can use to direct people who show an interest, maybe business cards. 

    I use Zenfolio, which I have found very good. There are endless ways to alter it to suit what you want, or you can just go for the default options. Quick to set up. Can be used as a showcase or for selling. I can give you a referral code too for 20% off but I see someone has beaten me to it. (H5B-YB8-S6X)

  4. I voted for the one on the right as I think the colour of the sea is much better. But agree that the sky could be darkened a little with a gradient filter in Lightroom and bring out any highlights. I’d also saturate the colours of the boats. I tend to brighten more than I used to now as well.

    A very rare sight at the moment: a Northern Rail train arriving on time.

    I’ll be using those next week. In fact, it takes three trains to get from Edinburgh to Liverpool. If the Northern train isn’t on time, the travel plans could be completely scuppered.

     .... the alternative is only shooting news that you know no one else will be sending - the result more time, able to edit the image and send without the rush. 

     

    It works for me!

     

     

    Yes, that’s my strategy ;) most of the time. But weather pics are easier, too.

    Finally a sale for May on the last day; a report for a Live News photo in The Times in April. It seems the more prestigious the newspaper, the less they pay. This was for around a tenth of the amount I got for a similar license for another image for another publication, which was for a smaller version of an image. Anyway a sale is a sale.

    Ignore what I said above. The low fee was for a repeat use later on in the Week in Pictures. The News online and print fee has just come in for a much better amount :)

    I’m not sure why Alamy cannot provide the details of which newspaper used an image.

    RF editorial and digital $45.17. Images in this science series have sold several times since I made this earth shattering discovery in 2012.

    I wondered why I had searches showing up for ‘Yeti’. One of our cars is one. :)
