  1. When you keyword(tag) everything you see in your head when you don’t even have your camera with you.
  2. Yeah that’s me except i check for sales on my phone before I even get out of bed.
  3. Hi, I’ve used a kaleidoscope filter to modify a few of my photos and submitted them to QC. Some are going through but others are rejected. The reason given for rejection is along the lines of you can’t call a photo editorial and add something which alters it (the filter?) . If you want to be creative ie use a filter you need to submit as commercial but then you’d need a release from the property owner but only if the property is still recognisable despite the effect of the filter, Can anyone help me out with the rules on this? Thanks
  4. Sold to Brazil, perpetual licence, any media, decent $$.
  5. Happy to see some of my summer holiday “work’ getting picked up.
  6. Licensed for German editorial media, 1 page inside, print run up to 5000. Via distributor. I took this just over a year ago at Felixstowe in Suffolk and loaded to Alamy as a news/ weather image. I guess this is a “normal” sale given the 12 months time lapse.
  7. I can’t get a header photo to load on my portfolio page. Using Safari on iPad. Is it just me?
  8. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/nov/02/flickr-delete-millions-photos-reduce-allowance-free-users I’ve had nothing from Flickr / Smugmug directly but I saw this in The Guardian today. If you’re using Flickr for storage - look out. 1000 images is a low threshold for pro/ semi pro photographers.
  9. I thought I was going to get to the end of the month with no sales but this saved the day for me, or should I say month.
  10. Does the QC excessive similars rule not apply to Live News? 15 near identical images of a Lyme Regis sunrise this morning. Minor format differences but even so...
  11. Thank you for that optimistic end to the day, I’ll keep my fingers crossed. 🙂
  12. @alamynews on Twitter have used one of my Live News images taken yesterday. I hesitate to ask but does that count as a sale?
  13. 6x vehicle and road sign captchas just now to get onto the Forum and I dont think i was doing it wrong. What a pain. 🤬
  14. Alright for some! Hope that’s not another glitch cos you won’t be happy tomorrow 😉
  15. This one of mine in The Guardian in a piece about livestock suffering in the heatwave. Article here https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jul/13/sunscreen-for-cows-uk-farmers-struggle-to-cope-with-heatwave All three pix from Alamy - Graham Turner, Andrew Gardner and mine. No fee yet hasn’t appeared on my account - was only in The Guardian a couple of days ago.
  16. Thank you all for your amusing and helpful suggestions. I’m surprised no-one spotted it’s already tagged (on the ear) hahaha. 😄😄😄🐂🐂🐂
  17. No that’s to do with safety & water nearby.
  18. Can anyone help please with the breed of this calf. Have done some searches but cannot be certain. Photographed in Suffolk at the weekend. Thanks 😄.
  19. Rather than us all putting up our numbers individually with subjective comments I’d like to see alamy publish some data. Anonymised analysis ie count of contributors who sold 0-25, 26-50, 50+ images for gross revenue <100, <200, <300 etc. Per month and per year categories. Plus some trending going back 1year, 5 years, 10 years. That would be way more useful than us trying to draw conclusions from a subset of contributors who visit this forum, Have alamy ever been approached to do this?
  20. You can go on their twitter feed and ask. I’ve done that and i got the extra info.
  21. Me neither, I’d find something else to shoot but each to his own.
