  1. Dear Chris - there have been 108 pages of discussion on the new contract (or clauses of concern). Why not grab a cup of coffee, and take the laptop out into the sun to read ... (We had the Red Arrows here today - what a great sight !).
  2. I've been having sales since I had only 60 images. This month (so far), I've had three. People on here said I'd never recover from a 0.18 CTR. Its now around 0.48. They said black and white would never sell. I've sold B+W. They said grey skies and an image that was not all sun and blue skies would never sell. I've sold a few. I have only had a couple of sales under $6. Why turn one's nose up at a cup of coffee. I dont spend an enormous amount of time editing, as I believe those pictures are not worth submitting. I also do Live News from time to time, and have also sold; and yes, I find it has
  3. These things don't bother me any longer (but thank you). Was just trying to reassure Allan who asked a question .. onwards Have a good day everyone!
  4. Side effects to the vaccine are all part of the immune response and that is individual to each person. Mostly it seems that with AZ reaction occurs after the first dose. and with Pfizer following the second. But age also plays a factor in that the reaction is less the older you are (but the vaccine not less effective). Immune status may wane after several months, which is why there will be an annual booster. There is a whole process to undergo if a vaccine is altered, so I doubt that has happened. Pfizer are confident in their vaccine efficacy against variants. (I used to be a nurse, and studi
  5. If it makes you feel any better, the whole of Creative Cloud is taking strike action (on my laptop) this evening. It happens from time to time. I hope you soon have your problem sorted. best wishes.
  6. Not all of it. Further down the page is an entry from May 2021 where it acknowledges that PS has issues with Big Sur.
  7. Yes - but that doesn't mean that something hasn't happened in the meantime. Anyway, I'll leave you to it. best wishes,
  8. That is not what the internet is saying ... https://www.google.com/search?q=photoshop+not+responding+Big+sur&client=safari&rls=en&ei=80utYOO2Huua1fAPqeu62Ao&oq=photoshop+not+responding+Big+sur&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAw6BggAEAcQHjoICAAQBxAFEB5QihdYgSpg-TloAHAAeACAAV6IAfUEkgEBOZgBAKABAaoBB2d3cy13aXrAAQE&sclient=gws-wiz&ved=0ahUKEwij_LDhxOXwAhVrTRUIHam1DqsQ4dUDCA0 Anyway, I'll leave you to it. I don't usually update until all the bugs are fixed (both platform and Adobe), so if at all possible (in my humble opinion) it's worth going back to the previous version
  9. Oh dear - have you picked up any info on the Google search ? Does an earlier version of PS work any better ? I'm stumped otherwise (very sorry ..). I guess you've seen this: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/photoshop-not-responding-after-macos-big-sur-update/m-p/11669346 (from Dec 2020) This from a May 2021 posting Photoshop 2020 – Photoshop 22.x is compatible (with Big Sur) but there are a few known issues.
  10. Actually I thought I was still on HS, but in fact am on Catalina. I found once before that going back to the previous version helped with issues. It depends how well established Big Sur is functioning with PS now, and whether Adobe have ironed out all the bugs that go alongside a new platfrom, as to whether it's worth using an earlier platform. In any event tuning off GPU worked for me (though as I say I'm still on Catalina).
  11. Did you try turning off the GPU ? Mine has periods of this (I'm still on High Sierra). I've found that turning off the GPU works. I think you mentioned a Google search - I've found it more effective to find others who have found a solution, rather than speaking to Adobe (though I totally understand doing that to start with).
  12. Thanks Paulette. I have no idea why - it just happened at the time the Alamy image page changed. I can download and zoom on Preview, so not too much bother. It's just a mystery as to why its happened.
  13. Have you used 'Get Info' and changed the permissions ? Sometimes that works.
  14. Is the latest upgrade of PS compatible with Big Sur ? I've found when PS stops responding that turning off GPU works. Got o Preferences, then on the right hand side of that section you will see 'GPU performance'. Untick the box, and see what happens. lf all else fails you can take a step back to High Sierra until the bugs are fixed. I
  15. Has anyone using the Safari browser on a MacBook Pro found that the 'zoom' feature on displayed images has disappeared. I've cleaned cache, cookies and run 'Clean my Mac', and nothing changes it. I don't want to install another browser. I've been downloading images (of my own), just to do a quick check once in the portfolio, and that probably works better than 'zoom'. Nonetheless it would be useful to know why it has disappeared. Alamy have suggested cleaning cache/cookies etc. Thanks in advance ...
