  1. Decent $$ Calendar inside and front cover, 20,000 print run. Worldwide.
  2. $$$ Calendar front page, I’m delighted, i walked a few hundred metres from my house looking for anything to photograph when I was shooting weather for live news. I saw this in the otherwise empty car park. The car was the only thing around that had any colour and I liked how it stood out from the snow.
  3. I’m interested to know why that doesnt breach Microsofts copyright? Also thinking i should take images of my laptop screen which has multiple software company logos at any given time.
  4. I could never do a wedding, or portraits for that matter, ,<shudder> - too many people, too much pressure. if i take 1000 images and drop my card somewhere i’ve noone to answer to except myself.
  5. Wow Betty that struck a chord with me. I spend hours out by myself with my camera and I get completely absorbed in what I’m doing. The exception recently has been photo trips out with a friend who i introduced to Alamy who is equally enthusiastic. Angela
  6. I’d like to give the class a 24 shot 35mm film and say “right, you’ve got to make that last a week and you have to get them processed at Boots. All creativity done in the camera. No post-production tinkering allowed. Oh, and you’ll have to wait two weeks to see what you’ve got”. OK, i’m a dinosaur.
  7. Why should we not discuss Stockimo here? It’s another arm of Alamy isnt it?
  8. I’m 53. I did O Level photography at school and have loved it ever since. My daughter is doing GCSE photography and has spent the afternoon preparing “contact sheets”. . She looked blank when I explained how negatives (wot?) used to come into CONTACT with the photographic paper. Her teacher might not even remember that. Started on stock 6 years ago failed and gave up. Restarted when Alamy relaxed on which cameras were acceptable. I work full tine, this is just a hobby, and when I get a sale (1 or 2 a month) it feels like a small lottery win 😄.
  9. Worldwide unlimited usage multi media mid $$. Women’s Tour of Britain in Suffolk 2018. https://www.alamy.com/thumbsImages.aspx?url=https://c7.alamy.com/comp/P1NHB5/kesgrave-uk-13th-june-2018-uk-news-ovo-energy-womens-tour-stage-1-passes-through-kesgrave-suffolk-this-morning-credit-angela-chalmersalamy-live-news-P1NHB5.jpg&imageref=P1NHB5
  10. If you’re in the Uk lots of buildings usually closed to the public open their doors temporarily from 13th. Photo opportunities galore. more info at the link below. https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting
  11. Haha looks like John and i should start a consultancy 😄
  12. Ian i’ve just done it in Numbers. Different to Excel but I got there, same COUNTIF function. Unfortunately no way to attach a screenshot. Email me if you want to take this offline before Alamy notice we’ve turned this board into an IT helpdesk! (sorry Alamy) ange.chalmers@btinternet.com
  13. From a data analytics point of view it’s very easy. I think the question is whether or not Alamy think thats a service they want to provide. If you want some XL type coaching I’m just across the river! I don’t know the Numbers spreadsheet though.
  14. In Excel i’d say COUNTIF function on the column holding the identifying values. Then a simple filter for results >1. I don’t know Numbers but assume it has a help index and a similar function? =COUNTIF (A:A,A1) A:A = range, A1 (the value in A1) = criteria
  15. love this! happy as a pig in ....
  16. Warwickshire countryside - mixed feelings seeing this pop in today. I was out for a walk just after my Dad died, this is near where he lived. A typical bit of English midlands countryside and I’m delighted someone likes it enough to buy it. Marketing package, mid $$.
  17. Yes I agree, having to load 1 by 1 is tedious too, It’s almost as if these are deliberate tactics to make people really selective about what they post. Having had alamy upload rights for a long time I find that a bit annoying. Anyone from Alamy going to comment here?
  18. On an ipad in Safari go to the image in Alamy (not your dashboard) . Pick “Download preview” and copy the link that comes up in the address bar. Paste the link into the forum post. You’ll get the image appear not the link. That’s how i do it.
  19. Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in April this year, Nice start to the month for me after a quiet June. Mid $$ magazine distro 2500.
  20. clicked on other meaning “any”, don’t mind. i’m 50/50 for being able to go - middle of school holidays childcare responsibilities kick in 🙂
  21. City of London around Lloyds building/ Gherkin and also there’s a free rooftop garden at 120 Fenchurch (not to be confused with the skygarden at 20 Fenchurch which is also free but you have to book.). City good for old and new buildings, skyscrapers, leadenhall market. Tends to be quiet at weekends as the workers arent there.
