  1. Thanks, Alan. That's interesting. I've recently been thinking about book covers, and assuming that they would typically be commercial shots--i.e. released, or not requiring release. Up to now, I haven't submitted many "commercial" shots to Alamy. Wondering if that's been a mistake. Is it correct that, while use of editorial images within an informational book (history, science, etc) would not require releases, their use on covers of those same books would--as they would function as sales/promotional devices? Michael
  2. Congrats to you folks for the book sales--can you tell whether they were used on book covers, or within the text? Also, do you have suggestions for best sizing of images (ratios) for use on book covers? I assume they should be vertical shots. I've sold 2 images of books this year, 25% of my 8 sales, with 12 zooms on books. About half of those were at the same time, though, so I think someone was just curious. Thanks for any suggestions. I know book covers would need either to be released, or be without identifiable people or places. Michael
  3. I'll let this YT video explain. Not a happy outcome. This is a legit report by a legit attorney.
  4. Thanks, Betty (and Jansos). I may try that route. See if I can rent one for a few days.
  5. Which iteration of the RX100 do you (and others) have? I'm having trouble hiding my Canon 5D4 when shopping in Home Depot. --Michael
  6. Outside the building, preferably not on the premises, I've never had a problem. I've taken a couple of pics of Federal courthouses, where Secret Service agents were present, and got no objections. I didn't push my luck by taking their pics, however. In any case where security is present, just be sure not to fail the attitude test. Michael North Carolina

  8. An Irish (I assume) Lass in downtown Charlotte (NC) St. Patrick Day festival. ===== Ah! Was called out by a very earnest fellow. I didn't think to ask if I had to commit all these sins, or if only one was sufficient. They were in front of a kind of beer garden (actually a packed parking lot), so I assume he was concentrating on drunkenness. He obviously has no Irish blood.
  9. I use Ghostery and UBlock Origin, both add-ons in my browser, which is Firefox (mostly).
  10. I just posted this on the 'suggestions' forum: "Now that Alamy is making a clearer distinction of images available only here, it only makes sense, imo, to have that information available on the sales page. Is work being done to make this improvement?" If "available only on Alamy" has any worth at all in promoting sales, it needs to be included in data about the image. If Alamy doesn't make that improvement, it may indicate that they don't believe that it does. It could also mean that they would rather discourage those sales, because of the higher commission paid to us. Let us hope that is not the case. Michael

  12. Damn! I have no talent for this. So obvious, and yet I missed it. Michael
