  1. Looking at the portfolios via link you sent and i was most definitely over thinking this Thanks again Wim.
  2. Hi Wim - Ah so it's only a recent thing. I've looked at other more developed portfolios from experienced Alamy photographers including yours. And wondered why the top section is never visible wondering is it only for client browsing our portfolio. " Welcome to [Contributor Name] profile page on Alamy " ..... Is the area that confuses me ( not a hard thing ), not entirely sure if other have a written in this area describing themselves or work. My name is already written above and for me that's enough but in public view it still shows this line...So its possibly better to use it than leave that
  3. On the discussion with portfolios, i was looking at others out of interest yet can't see any header photos or details. How do i do this?

    Hi there

    Yassas, was in Meteora only yesterday, beautiful part of the world and welcome to the world of Alamy.
  5. I use and do everything i need within the standalone LR6 version. And even then it's more than i require, less is more plus i don’t know my ass from my elbow on PS. I paid about £100 and downloaded direct from Adobe. No problems.
  6. Not a stupid question at all, we’re on roughly the same amount of photos, i usually upload daily although only say 5 a day, it takes lots of time and effort and its hard seeing others selling theres when i’ve not had even a zoom yet but its a long-term game and im determined to keep on trucking, developing and learning until i see that sale drop in... i sometimes use a site that generates words related to your subject. Comes in handy during those blank periods, so use it quite often lol...but dont add words that aren’t directly related to your picture.
  7. The fixed 23mm f2 attached to the Fujifilm x100, after many years lacking photographic inspiration or excitement that little camera and lens combo got my juices flowing again. So im forever indebted to it plus love the 23mm ( 35mm equiv ) for street, landscape and generally.
  8. You lucky lucky bastard...214 views and not a sniff of a zoom...🤪
  9. Congrats, still waiting on mine...must be a great feeling regardless of price...it’s nice knowing it works. 👍
  10. ....and you did it on an ipad....omg. Well done for getting through that especially when it wasn’t your fault 👍
  11. True John, i did intitially but stopped for some random reason, lazy or maybe just a little drained of the whole Captioning n Tagging...it does takes time when your having to research latin butterfly names and remember what country you were in 😂...but your right the Options are easy enough 👍
  12. Keeping asses covered always very sensible 😂 That sounds an absolute mare, think i’d rather poke my eyes out than unscarmble 1000’s of tags...but with that in mind i think its best doing things properly from the start in case like you say Alamy have a plan. And your right, finally achieved my 1st Green...was proud as punch 🤪
  13. Likewise...compared to street art this just seems immoral, i mean i’ve owned some rare art books, what was stopping me just copying them?
  14. I also have the standalone version, shouldn’t it be 6.1.4 which was the last software update Adobe have given us. I optimise at least a couole times a week. Stopped importing everything as DNG as well as building standard previews as it takes forever and zaps my macbook air. So do that once i know which photos i’m using. Currently LR is working a treat. I’d definitely suggest updating to 6.1.4 and optimising. Oh and i use an external hard drive as my main catalogue.
  15. Yeh also using Safari in the last 2hrs, wouldn’t accept any uploads although it seems to have corrected itself, frustrating though...bad enough spending time on the laptop as it is 👍
  16. That’s a good point Joe, don’t want to add 1000’s to realise it’s become a vital part. Was just wandering if by adding categories your photos get a higher viewing rate etc...i was thinking probably not but like you say things can change so i’ve started addressing the situation in a backward way, least i’ve only 200 to catchup on
  17. Seems to be a lot of extra ( well a bit ) work if it doesn’t make a difference eh...
  18. Seemed to have got myself into the habit of ignoring the Optional extras, categories locations etc. How much of a bad habit is this? Do these options really make a difference im wondering. Should i break the habit before my portfolio gets bigger?
  19. Its so unbelievably sad, and happening constantly...its crazy when i think how close Syria and Iraq are...but let’s not get political 🙄
  20. Rents here in Greece can be very cheap, lots of empty apartments so its a renters market maybe. Good bus services, never see anyone paying otherthan tourists. They also have an NHS which is free but takes forever. Postal service, 2 days to get here from UK, 4 weeks to come 10miles away...postal system is pitiful. Food prices are higher than average compared to the UK. But theres regular markets and everything is crazy cheap. Bit too hot for me now but its a beautiful laid back country.
  21. Very true, my camper is not only my transportation but my home office and sanctuary. Not really how i envisaged my life to be but it is what it is 😉.
  22. A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other permanent surface says Wikipedia, although agree when murals mentioned i think Cistine Chaple rather than Brick Lane. Although definitely prefer the latter 😊
