  1. Hi Hayley, and welcome from another Hampshire contributor. Don't worry about trying to add lots of tags - it's not necessary to get the discoverability bar into the green, and it's not a good idea to include irrelevant tags. If you search "Discoverability" on the forum, you'll find lots of discussion about this. On the other hand, there are a few more tags that you should add to your wildlife photos, including wildlife! Also it's important to include the Latin (scientific) names, and be specific about the species, for example what species is your wagtail. It's probably worth adding the c
  2. There's already lots of amazing images here, but I'll add my 3 anyway. 1. Produce stall on a boat in Helsinki Harbour, Finland 2. Christmas market in Winchester, Hampshire, UK 3. Market in Hungerford, Berkshire, UK
  3. Had a couple of low-mid $$ sales. Both were UK licences for multiple editorial use, and had sold before. Grey squirrel stripping bark Ladybird feeding on aphids

  6. My first sale of the month just dropped in. Low $$ for a presentation/newsletter - EU, but direct. A photo of a ramshorn snail in my garden pond, which was zoomed a few days ago.
  7. I was supposed to have my flu jab today, but they cancelled it yesterday for the 2nd time - probably due to the petrol shortages but they didn't give a reason.
  8. A good month in the end. I had 35 sales and one refund totalling $655 gross/$224 net. Highest were 2 licences at $85 each, but those were distributor sales. Happy to reach last years total revenue with 3 months to go.
  9. Had a few small sales in today, including these 2. Newspaper, low $$. Magazine licence for $. Cattle grazing a wildflower meadow.
  10. A few of my favourites from this month. Wasp spider guarding her egg sac. Bird ringers with a sparrowhawk Sunny day in Guildford
  11. Had 2 distributor sales overnight to Japan for book use, both for this image, high $$ each. These are the 3rd and 4th licences for this photo, making it my highest gross earner (not the highest net though). The other good news is it takes me over last years total gross revenue (but again not net!).
  12. Sorry to hear that, but thanks for the warning. I hope you don't get it so badly this time, and that you make a good recovery.
  13. You're welcome, Dave. I'm glad you got it to work. Lovely colourful image!
  14. I put the image code into the search box in the Alamy homepage or in My Alamy to open the image, then click on the image, and then click on enlarge. Then it can be dragged into the forum (open in a different window).
