  1. Hello everyone, I would love to hear any advice and critique on my portfolio. link: https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/arvy Thanks in advance!
  2. Don't Know how to insert screen shot so will try to describe: Send 98 images via Filezilla host - upload.alamy.com - Remote Site /Stock ( is this the right folder?) Successful transfer (98) Hooray!!! The only issue is I don't see single image on my Submissions in Image Manager yet. Hoping this will be visible soon unless I've done something wrong again?..
  3. Thank you all!, and - Oh my goodness, so many grate comments but I don't see any notification from Alamy about it!.. Why?!.. This make me think I may have wrong settings but Notify me of replies is On - GREEN!.. Am confused if my dashboard and rest of Alamy pages connected to my profile is working properly?.. feeling so little and unexperienced 💧
  4. price tag' noun: a label showing the price of an item for sale. Sorry for being confusing and I don't know if would be ok to write too many details on this forum?..
  5. What a strange day!, Images won't upload to Alamy and there isn't any topic on FTP on this forum?? Can anyone advise for simple to use FTP app for Mac? Have 100's of images to upload but seems like uploading via dashboard isn't working and am stuck with firs image for the last 2 hours 😡 Reloaded many times but still no luck. For a test I uploaded x100 large file to youtube and is all looking good, but Alamy page is not able to upload.. My image files are between 5-15 mb only and is over 100 images... What is the best way to upload many files at ones on to Alamy?
  6. Multimillion price tag farm who is behind all this and probably my foreign name is too ugly to be printed on their calendar.. No, I am not planning to any huge claim and only few thin whips throe their fingers so no images will be taken in the future and I could continue shooting landscape time-lapses started in 2007. Based on our communication this craziness I see as a deliberate farmers insult covered under innocents of local community shop. brrr am getting angry just thinking about it
  7. Hello everyone, I am an amateur photographer and shooting only cause I love recording memories. Photography is an obsession to me. I post my photographs on Alamy, Youtube and social media. The day has come when I realised that posting photographs on Facebook for advertisement reason is bad idea and the only question I have now is how bad? Thought being part of any photographic organisation or other legal photographic body as Alamy is enough to be protected from copyright infringements and today I learned I was wrong.. While reading "Report an unauthorised use" I've learned that Alamy: quote: "can’t chase unauthorised uses on your behalf if your image… Has been used in a personal (non commercial) blog or on an individual’s social media platform." In my case I posted some photos on Facebook and ouch!, seems like will have to row against the wind and waves on my own without Alamy's help.. Briefly: I was asked for the permission but refused for my photographs to be used on "this" calendar. Two of my photographs wore printed on calendar without my permission. Unlike others my name was not included anywhere on the calendar. Calendar price was £7.50 [receipt]. UK based. Feel so insulted by this having nightmares. Where do I go from here and where to start from?
  8. Thank you Jill for reply! ... Dear Santa, pls forgive me for posting only two out of three images! #1 Caterpillar Tale, Snowdonia National Park #2 Portland Bill Lighthouse
  9. I just can't find on how to insert Alamy image link on to this forum so that image is visible instead of 10 mile long link. Lower right of this message I have options for - Insert other media - insert existing attachment - Insert image from URL. under Insert existing attachment I see message - You do not have existing attachments. Insert image from URL?? What URL??? it won't work and only gives me red light https://www.alamy.com/anax-imperator-emperor-dragonfly-in-flight-image214575925.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=72D6926A-406E-4953-BF5C-53AFC6B49718&p=577662&n=0&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=12&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d12%26pn%3d1%26ps%3d100%26sortby%3d2%26resultview%3dsortbyPopular%26npgs%3d0%26qt%3d%26qt_raw%3d%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%26creative%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26pc%3d%26blackwhite%3d%26cutout%3d%26tbar%3d0%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26imgt%3d0%26dtfr%3d%26dtto%3d%26size%3d0xFF%26archive%3d1%26groupid%3d%26pseudoid%3d%26a%3d%26cdid%3d%26cdsrt%3d%26name%3dArvydas%20Kizevicius%26qn%3d%26apalib%3d%26apalic%3d%26lightbox%3d%26gname%3d%26gtype%3d%26xstx%3d0%26simid%3d%26saveQry%3d%26editorial%3d1%26nu%3d%26t%3d%26edoptin%3d%26customgeoip%3dGB%26cap%3d1%26cid%3dX5YWASDWM3XJ8AF9NAR8T82NEXBXNYK6EFFEGGVPRYSV3QFCMDCA4J83MLEUPXHL%26vd%3d1%26lb%3d%26fi%3d2%26edrf%3d0%26ispremium%3d1%26flip%3d0%26pl%3d
  10. I not speak English thanks to latest Alamy announcement. How to insert image on this message? Insert Other Media button won't accept 10 mile long Alamy image URL. Why? How?
  11. Thanks fotoDogue and kay!, Thought Photoshop is grate and simple! we live and learn*
  12. Am with Safari 11.0.3 and software can use Lightroom or Photoshop. I never used PS or Lr for Headline & Caption before. Is this where it shall be done? I searched youtube but can't find Headline & Caption topic for PS or Lr.
  13. Hi, I read previous forum topics on Live News: Headline and Caption but can't find answer am looking for.. - Where do 'Headline and Caption' shall be written to? Sorry if my question sound funny, but after I drop my picture for upload via My Dashboard I have only one option to choose from - Title (only). There is no other option I could see. What do I do wrong? Where to write Headline and Captions for LiveNews upload?
  14. Hello camera ppl, Recently I shot landscape photo and not sure what settings to use on 'Image Manager'? After a search on Alamy for London (&other street photography) I found many Images marked as 'No Properties' on their images, and this made me confused. English is my 5th language and when it comes to using/understanding technical words I can get easily lost Recently I photographed coastal landscape with a church and lighthouse within my image (no ppl). How do I know if I need property release for such buildings and what adjustments best to use in 'Image Manager' - 'Optional tab'?
  15. You guys Rock and thank you all for advises!!! Ive tagged all words mentioned by you and now my photo is showing full GREEN light on discoverability bar! This is so grate!!! But still, I don't know if this could be called mist of heiz.?. I am still confused and suspecting this is some sort of other type of weather phenomenon we may not know about it yet or is so rare we haven't learned about and named yet.. Distance from camera to the furthest visible trees in the horizon is around 10 km.
  16. Thank you Sally, I've tagged your mentioned keywords to!, but still I am no so sure if this is the case?.. Maybe I am too naive, but without finding a single similar image, I suspect this is some kind of weather phenomenon we haven't learned about it yet, and I could be wrong..
  17. How can you recognise rook from raven if looking from bokeh? I named raven because I thought bird in my photo is larger than other crow family birds? Viewing original size photo I can see white pixels dominating birds beak and the bottom beak has more white than the top one..
  18. I may have found the way to copy writings to mobile phone and let's see if it works.. Thank you foOor Dorper Sheep! - my bad.! ..tho still thinking on keeping misspell as well., anyway Alamy is offering 50 tags and that is a lot, so why not? 
 Am not sure if word 'mist' is the right word for that image?.. mist is usually thick white/grey in colour mat instead of see through? Thought, mist is usually scatters around in random shapes, is bumpy and (whatever) light in my photo is so flat so clear and see throe,!?! 
 Pls allow me to describe this day and maybe this will help to crack this light phenomena code.X. 
 I patiently waited and was fully prepared to shoot on 7.7.17 from Tan Hill in Wiltshire for many reason. Weather condition around this date wore excellent and my instincts suggested to make time-lapse project while shooting nonstop for as long as I could stay awake. 777 was a number I was after as well 😅 Entire time-lapse lasted for nearly 20 hours from 6/7/17 evening till 7/7/17 after lunch.. 
 Most beautiful clear skies at night* with fog taking over Pewsey Downs National Nature Reserve in early morning hours .. This was the day I never forget.. 
 On the opposite side of this photo is a steep hillside dropping down with valley below. At the same time this photograph was taken the valley below was already filled with very thick fog o the top.. I was hypnotised by the beauty of fog taking over Tan Hill. When I turned around to see whats on the other side, I saw this light. Without a second thought I turned my camera around and to capture this beauty* ..soon after, the cloud I saw in the valley below reached my position and I dove in to Abbys of myst and cloud.. the cloud was so thick I could not see anything within 3-5 meters distance â˜ï¸ðŸ’¨ 
 I may post some more photos of this day later 
 in other words, no matter what direction I looked, this white blue plasma horizontal line left me in disbelieve and joy at the same time.. 
 This was one of most happiest days in my life!* 
 Speaking on language subject, yes you guessed right, I am Lithuanian and Russian was mandatory in schools as second language during soviet era.. This allowed me to understand many other Slavic family languages to.. Latin is alien language to me, and don't know any basics of it.. I only heard that Latin is very complicated for those who study and learn.. Wonder what all "ania" countries has in common? Albania, Armenia, Lithuania, Romania, Transylvania you name it.. and every place has some historical deep twist within each culture in various ways..? around 5 yrs ago I read rumours in NewYork Times that Lithuanian language is dating back to before Sanskrit.? not sure what to say about such speculation.. but our names do have lots of similarity to Greek names and we share some common words with cultures from India.. Interesting and confusing: where & how all cultures has came from usually I like blaming aliens for everything we don't have answer to! uhh, seem to be working just not sure what's with the front size is? Looking so large edited fixing text size..
  19. Ouch,, by the time I finished writing my reply to your message my Internet has stopped. Moving to new address this weekend. Love being here and will reply after few days time for sure.!.
  20. Wow Thank you Russel!, I didn't knew such bird name as 'Rook'. Indeed, this could be it.!. I know the place where these birds nest, and will have to investigate, and learn about it very soon! Sadly Alamy watermark covered entire bird and its wide open beak.. entire prey bird character is not there any more.. crucial detail.. errr, ..am so not happy about watermark placement covering most important part.. how sad' 😰💧 Can this be somehow fixed/adjusted throe dashboard or els?? 🤔
  21. Thanks for advise Spacecadet! 🚀 thought using unique tag names only would help to direct google searchers on to Alamy images? Thought Alamy tags are highly connected to google search engine and not sure if I have to somehow to connect my google account to Alamy so that the tags are directed from Alamy to google with ease? What if I tag my image on Alamy using name that doesn't exist (lovespaceandeverythingaboutit) .. can images from Alamy with such tag name (no space between words) be found on google than? 🤔
