  1. Best month so far, 2 sales for what in the great scheme of things is only a small portfolio although amazing the time and effort required.... if only they knew eh...
  2. Alamy works, highest sale to date Mid $$ Country: United KingdomUsage: EditorialMedia: Magazine - print, digital and electronicPrint run: up to 25,000
  3. Ham n eggs with toasted fruit loaf? You must be from different parts...Maybe i'll interest you with some vegan options in the future
  4. Typical, i always use Safari but downloaded Chrome to test that so assumed it was my mac, either way i now know for the future going by my size port will probably forget by next year lol
  5. Yeh dragging and dropping directly wouldn't work and when right clicking no menu would appear but i found by dragging the expanded image into a blank menu bar the URL would pop up which i could then copy and paste. It worked so i'm chuffed, thank you
  6. Thank you both, think i'm bugged...no right-click menu appears when over the image but finally found a work around... Really appreciate your help, nice to be able to join in...onwards n upwards
  7. Jeez what a faff...Anyway, my 2nd sale woohoo...Low $$ which impressive as i couldn't remember the location Country: WorldwideUsage: Personal use, Persönliche Ausdrucke, Karten und Geschenke oder Referenz für Künstler. Nur nicht kommerzielle Verwendung, nicht zum Weiterverkauf bestimmt.Media: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home use
  8. Just received my 2nd sale, could someone please explain how to share the image with you on here ( sorry i'm sure this has been asked many times ).
  9. Didn't realise there was one, and tbh not sure id use it. Quite content with just the forums and learning/listening in the shadows from the usual group of friendly more experienced who just happen to be the ones also commenting on here.
  10. I did watch Abraham Lincoln just the other day in motion and full colour, way more handsome than i was expecting. Definitely creepy but fascinating at the same time, think we're one step away from regenerating humans from their DNA. imagine the stories they could tell us...
  11. Yeh it was literally tweak the settings ( not sure what they were off-hand ) which in turn prevented the issue from reappearing. Are you using a standalone version of LR? Since using the dreaded Adobe subscription ( not a fan ) the issue is no more. Obviously i can't compared files to those of Sony or other manufactures for sharpness etc. But i'm happy.
  12. I did notice a lack of sharpness rather than the dreaded worm everyone mentions, I did comparison tests using other available Raw converters ( i've shot raw since it was an option ) and there was definitely an improvement outside of LR, but then i read an article on some random site about the Abode LR settings, and low and behold you could achieve the same quality within LR so no major expensive software change or new unwanted learning curve. That was with Standalone LR, since being forced into their subscription package just to keep up to date and with the Jones's, there hasn't been any issue
  13. Those are pretty substantial factors, and i notice the price difference isn't massive. I have promised no more camera bodies this year after 2 last year...Theres always a justification
  14. Never tried using the X-T range, always preferred the rangefinder look but i'm tempted, I think the software is better, ie, focus stacking is available. What are the main benefits for the 4 coming from the 3?
  15. Complete Fuji fan boy here, the X-pro being my main work horse and X100 is my guilty pleasure. I haven't picked up the canon 5d in 5yrs...and won't anytime soon. I get the hoo haa over the X-trans sensor files and LR, Adobe should hold their head in shame. Although i stuck through it and the latest files on LR come out crystal clear and no wiggly worm effect. Although dam LR is slow on my iMac. Anyway, yes, the X-pro is great, if i could use just the X100V i would...I also purchased a Ricoh GRiii recently as an EDC which is beautifully built and light but yeh its no Fuji.
  16. Totally get that, i find myself spending hours a week observing what sells and the work here of other more experienced contributors, putting yourself in the editor/researchers chair is a good way of looking at things, it's interesting seeing some sales of images i'd never dream would be sold yet those who are more experienced maybe understand the nature/process of stock much better. Fascinating world this is.
  17. Thank you for that explanation, although i contribute and have always loved art and photography my background is very different so not entirely sure of the workings of publishing etc. So just trying to understand it further. I can see how it can become a very tangled web, not knowing what's been used and where and by whom, tracebility etc. It's a lovely feature that i enjoy skirting through almost daily and enjoy seeing others getting sales. The commission comment was tongue in cheek
  18. Could someone explain the significance of the " Images Found " threads, i mean i always look through out of interest rather than expectation. Is there commission for finding someones image being used or as i suspect a way of keeping an eye on our work not entirely trusting of Alamy to follow through?
  19. I don't like Mondays! Just another grey day in London. Thread sounds like two great photography project title ideas
  20. Hi Ashley, As hinted above its not all gold and glitter in the world of stock but i'm assuming you're aware of all that shenanigans. Anyway welcome to the friendly and honest community that is Alamy. Looking forward to seeing some of your photos. Jay
  21. Ah gotcha, would be very useful. Surprised Alamy hasn't it own or LR for that matter. Although even Instagram doesn't allow direct access anymore.
  22. Had a very similar episode a few years ago, optician said also with terrible bedside manner he thinks i might have a brain tumour or cancer ( always a pleasure to hear ), a week later after much concern my doctor said the exact same as you, scaring from birth. Some opticians really should keep their opinions to themselves and just advise seeing a doctor to be certain there's nothing serious going on. Glad your all good
