  1. So I'll start by saying that I am happy. 15 licenses for $774.00 makes me very happy and to be honest couldn't have expected more considering the times, size of port etc. DACS payback TV only portion via Alamy was $82; the other I claimed myself;and that was quite a decent amount as well, overall making this a terrific month for me. I always have to remind myself that I restricted PUs and that could be having a negative impact on the number of sales, how much of an impact I don't know but can only find out once I remove those restrictions. I am now considering removing them to see what ch
  2. On the Cover of, Science, Vol 370, Issue 6516, 30 October 2020 Chinook or King Salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha Rogue River Oregon - Mark Conlin / Alamy Stock Photo - ATE1BP There is this tread on Verticals, so this would be one of those horizontals cropped to vertical, just thought I'd add that for interest.
  3. The Bang Bang Club? Have read a bit about each of the photographers, very interesting bios, really cool and brave photojournalists. Could have been a best but according to expert reviews wasn't. Sorry Michael, haven't watched it myself so can't recommend. If anyone has watched it how would you rate it? Helen
  4. Remembered seeing this image in another thread https://www.vice.com/en/article/qj4ga5/liverpool-coronavirus-lockdown-tier-3-restriction-pubs A John Lennon statue on Mathew Street, Liverpool. Photo: Ed Rooney / Alamy Stock Photo - 2BW7188
  5. I see thank you for that. Did not dig deep enough into the contract so was not aware of it. Good to know.
  6. Hello David, You are missed on the forums. Can't answer the first part about deduction / cut except for what I know, which is that Alamy takes 50%. I do think you can still opt-out for future claims, I could be wrong but you can Opt-in, Opt-out every year, just don't know what the deadline to do this would be. Best to ask dacspayback@alamy.com team for most accurate info on this, as I said I could be wrong. Helen
  7. Hello Tariq, It is normal. Saw my first sale 9 months I think, if I remember correctly, after first upload. Nothing wrong with pictures, nothing at all, very nice actually. Others have mentioned adding Latin names for your wildlife. I looked at some of your birds and besides missing the Latin name you are missing the word bird in the caption, and for example the cherry blossoms, you might want to add the word tree those kinds of obvious words; still important and buyers do search using those simple words too so have them in your captions. Very nice, sellable or
  8. Only posting with the idea that it may give some encouragement, motivation, hope whatever to those that might feel like it is all downhill. Don't get discouraged. This month has cheered me up, 'kind of' , 13 sales for $647 that is actually quite good. Got lucky with a couple of TV licenses and a couple of other good sales helped make the month. But 13 sales is lowish for me. Previous couple of months were not great. Have added very few images lately, only shot so there would be some activity on my port. Will likely pull them after I get around to shooting stuff I think should be in my por
  9. I have the Nik 2, but have had a chance to compare the Nik 3. I would not pay for the upgrade just for the filters (colorefex, analog, etc) they are mostly all the same. What they added was the Perspective and that can be an invaluable tool for anyone who does a lot of architecture, interiors. Does a good job straigtening out all those lines and making the buildings look normal instead of like 'leaning tower of Pisa wanna-bes'. A lot of the same corrections can be achieved in photoshop though requires some skill and for me does not always come out looking 100% right. DXO do have a separate
  10. Don't usually post in this thread but this is an interesting one $$$. I mean the usage. A Museum? for this image? Country: France Usage: Editorial Media: Museum display (single use) Print run: Single use only Image Size: Any size Start: 29 June 2020 End: 29 June 2025 Pleased it might be the last sale for the month. Helen
  11. Joined Stockimo back then, and submitted a handful of images. The whole Stockimo thing is a great idea gives one a chance to get creative with filters and such. Would have continued contributing but I had an iPhone 5S at the time and got rid of it after three months when I realized it was trying to control me and tell me what to do. I prefer to control my devices and not the other way around; switched to android and even managed to install Lineage OS and some apps from Fdroid on the Xperia Z2 after hours spent on Github and other places, works fine and I have much more control. I'll repeat
  12. These may be older publications, but worth checking, might not have them on your DACS list. Worth having a look, for next year's payback. There are quite a few credits, actually a lot, with ISBNs listed: https://englishfile4e.oxfordonlinepractice.com/assets/data/Acknowledgements.pdf Helen
