  1. thanks for comments all 🙂
  2. I don’t know why i never noticed before but I spotted today that my two cameras are set up differently. One is 3:2 the other 3:4. I’ve sold pictures in both formats but just wondering is one better for stock than the other. Any views?
  3. Personal use licence. Taken at one of my favourite photo spots that I visit often, only 5 miles from home. Shows you don’t have to go far I guess. 😎
  4. I think i might have asked alamy about that one. So did you have to repay the money or did your account just go into deficit/minus?
  5. Ok so I need to be patient. Can the buyer change their mind during the 45 days? I think I read the limit on that is 30 days. thanks 🙂
  6. Hi I sold a picture 12th Jan and haven’t been paid yet. I understand buyers can change their mind but there hasnt been a refund. I understand also about the monthly pay run so I expected to get paid end of Feb. Then I read that alamy only pay when funds from buyer have cleared, I guess that makes sense. What I dont know is alamy’s credit terms for buyers. How long do buyers get to settle up? I’ve read everything on the FAQ cant find the answer. thanks
  7. Thanks 😄. Looking at some of your recent stuff (aviation heritage museum, Ipswich docks) I’m surprised we havent bumped into each other. I’ll be looking out for you now!
  8. Hi Ian, I just had my first sale so I’ll start the timer and let you know when i hit $100k. Don’t hold your breath. 😉 Angela
  9. I’m recovering from cataract surgery and have had lousy vision for about 6 weeks now. I ‘ve been going out nearly every day with camera set to F11, evaluative metering, AF, +/- 1 bracketing and 125 ISO and I’ve got a lot of decent shots. The camera can see well even though I can’t. I never really know what I’ve got until I’m home and uploaded. It’s giving me something to focus on (sorry obv pun) before I’m fixed and back at work,
  10. I’ve bought used camera bodies and lenses from Wex and MPB recently. All good, happy with condition and performance of kit and delivery speed. Also MPB took back and fully refunded a lens I changed my mind about.
  11. These chimneys were featured on BBC Look East last night. They’re unsafe and may be demolished. I wonder if that triggered the sale.
  12. Older couple running together, The Guardian. https://www.theguardian.com/community/2018/jan/05/im-not-replacing-my-car-as-i-dont-want-to-spend-the-money-your-best-comments-today
  13. Hi, AIM has my default image licensing set to RF but News images get set to RM regardless. I’ve been looking at Alamy’s PDF about licensing but I can’t see an explanation. Are News images always RM? Why? thanks.
  14. Guardian online today - very old Scottish police car. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/dec/31/police-scotland-still-using-28-year-old-vehicle
  15. Weekend? Picture editors not working/` (no idea just a thought).
  16. Painfully slow tonight. 30 minutes for three images and now upload is just stuck. Rest of household off the wifi. Wonder if it’s alamy’s end. update Abandoned and restarted. That worked, normal speed achieved.
  17. You’re right. I passed start up QC in 2013 then put in a few submissions which all failed and I didnt understand why so I got disillusioned and gave up. I decided to try again this summer and all but that first set have been added this year.
  18. Congrats . I’m waiting for my first. I still believe it will happen. 😄
  19. Last time I used Photobox I was disappointed with the product - too dark and poor generally. I have used Art.com recently for a largish print and I’m very happy with that.
  20. From comments I’m wondering if the answer is a mix of date taken, tags and caption. What will be successful depends on the customer, what they’re looking for and how well they understand how to do Alamy searches. Cover all bases! 😎
