  1. 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...
  2. Thank you for that optimistic end to the day, I’ll keep my fingers crossed. 🙂
  3. @alamynews on Twitter have used one of my Live News images taken yesterday. I hesitate to ask but does that count as a sale?
  4. 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. 🤬
  5. Alright for some! Hope that’s not another glitch cos you won’t be happy tomorrow 😉
  6. 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.
  7. Thank you all for your amusing and helpful suggestions. I’m surprised no-one spotted it’s already tagged (on the ear) hahaha. 😄😄😄🐂🐂🐂
  8. No that’s to do with safety & water nearby.
  9. 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 😄.
  10. 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?
  11. You can go on their twitter feed and ask. I’ve done that and i got the extra info.
  12. Me neither, I’d find something else to shoot but each to his own.
  13. Wow congratulations. I’d be over the moon with that, but then I am a newbie. (5 in June, 10 for the year to date).
  14. Thanks for the info. And to answer your question- no idea but I seem to have the market on Walton beach huts at the mo, this is the second sold from the same shoot both for decent fees. I guess I got lucky 😄.
  15. This sale landed this morning. Licence is for a UK national newspaper print run up to 2 million copies. I don’t know which newspaper so if you spot it please let me know. It’s not appearing on Google search so I suspect its one of the paywall papers - Times, Telegraph?
  16. I took Wim’s string and added to it, which has worked eg Angela Chalmers Alamy - site:alamy.com -site:alamy.de -site:alamy.es -site:alamy.pt Needs a bit more work to exclude all the alamy derivatives but you get the idea. I tried using &&& as a wildcard but that didn’t work. I was trying to get to syntax which would exclude any alamy domain without having to list them all. Thanks Wim 😄
  17. Really pleased with this one. Decent licence fee for calendar usage. Taken about a year ago in Brighton with my little Canon Powershot just after I bought it. Also this was the point I decided to try again with Alamy after giving up several years previously,
  18. Great picture 😍. The licence sounds like its for TV and they’ll use the image over and over.
  19. Oh wow thanks for that Mandy. I guess it only counts as one sale though, for use by the article author, not one for every website it’s on though that would be nice!
  20. This shot of my friend’s Vizsla has appeared in an online article about the top 15 best dog breeds for families. Per Google images its on at least 6 websites but I can only see one. They’re all US based and mostly blocked to me as I’m in a country where GDPR applies, ie the UK. That’s going to limit the reach of Alamy’s infringements team.
  21. email from alamy - tech issues with their db and my images should be visible later today
  22. Hi yes same here I have three batches passed QC 8th June but still not appearing in searches. I just emailed contributor services for advice.
