  1. Sadly, not here. I remain at the two steps forward, one back position. Past payout etc but still a large amount waiting to be paid.
  2. Well, I'd made progress in the last week or so. An additional $50 cleared ($200+ still waiting) .... yay. Today, $31 disappeared from cleared funds, no additional refunds listed etc, just disappeared 😑 If the other agencies paid as fast as this I'd be out of business by now... thankfully they only represent <3%.. but, $200 would still be useful given the current climate. Yes I know this is how they roll but it doesn't make it any less frustrating. There is no way I could get away with this when paying other people.
  3. I've had a couple of sales this month, more refunds though (the duplicate purchase refunds Alamy advised of). Just seems Alamy has stopped chasing money owed. I know some business will be struggling.... just like the photographers who took the photographs for them to use. Edit... Not all agencies are hitting slowdown. There is one I use that returned a near BME last month and this month won't be far off either. I guess it depends on who your client base is etc.
  4. I've had a few of those duplicate refunds this month... cleared balance is moving very slowly here as well. Still over $200 waiting for payment. Cleared balance did go up $1 the other day, first for a while.
  5. It could be good, it could be bad and only time will tell. But it is one of the few reasons I would not go exclusive.
  6. Haha... yeah, I have 8 years to think of a way to get out of it πŸ€”πŸ€£
  7. Just logged in and checked HRMC to see how many years I had... 26 full years + this year. Only another 8 needed out of 19. Does that mean by the time I'm 56 I can tell them to bog off with their NI payments πŸ˜‚
  8. Only just logging in for the first time for a while... such terrible news, condolences to Keith’s family!
  9. Haha... hell no. One for Hiking, One for Sunny and one for Cumbria UK. Then you stack them in any order and the first one stay at the top of the list. If I had one preset for Sunday Hiking UK.... I might use it once in a blue moon...hummm, another preset maybe πŸ˜‚
  10. It does offer cataloging and sessions. I tend to use sessions. This is basically a mini catalogue for one shoot. Once I finish work on those images I can move the session to a NAS drive for storage and backup. This frees up the faster working hard drives without disturbing files I haven't finished with. I think LR catalogue is faster though, hence... I also export jpgs of all finished files to a folder on a specific jpg external hard drive. The folder names match the names of the NAS/Backup folders. This is then imported into a LR (classic) catalogue with the files remaining in the
  11. I use Capture One Pro. I used to use LR but they force alphabetical only which is no good. Quite ironic given their own agency requires keywords to be ranked πŸ˜‚ In C1 Pro, you can just drag and drop the keywords into a different order, or as I do, create sets of keywords that can be selected a list and stacked together. A bit like how you save a style but instead, I've created a categories and have lists for different situations. For instance, hiking in the Lake District I'd stack, Hiking, Landscape, Sunny Day, Cumbria UK. and in those lists would be all the keywords for those cate
  12. Thanks... I've reached out to contributor support to see if they can apply the changes. Effectively, nothings changed other than the addition of supertags. I used to use this method of batch changes to DBs when I worked at a bank... should be easy enough for them to do... and, it helps improve the performance of files in their library! Thanks again Edit. For those that are interested. The formula looks to copy everything from the left until it finds a "|". The substitute part of the formula looks to replace the "," with an "|" and the last part tells the formula how man
  13. Harry... or anyone else who has done this before. Now that I have a completed csv file with all supertags etc, is there a way to upload it automatically or do you have to send it to contributor support?!? Cheers
