  1. I quite agree, Rick... I haven`t sold any yet, but the thought of a customer receiving a full resolution file for the amount charged doesn`t sit well with me. I haven`t uploaded a lot yet, and am having second thoughts about doing so.
  2. I sell vintage on another site and have run into the same problem... I occasionally get lazy and don`t clean, but just dust off the product before taking a series of photos... big mistake... now I gently clean with a drop of dish soap in a bowl of water using a soft cloth and a light touch, then rinse.... of course, it depends on whether the item can get wet or not.... for jewelry, I have a jewelry cleaner... btw, paper towels will leave lint.
  3. I went grocery shopping this morning and made sure I had my new RX100M6 with me... the more I use this camera, the more I love it. Everywhere I look, I now see a stock opportunity. Aarrghh!.. I`m hooked!
  4. Thanks, Kumar... that means a lot coming from a longtime contributor.
  5. Very nice.. congratulations... maybe there`s hope for me one of these days
  6. I was googling nursery rhymes to get an idea of what a book I have might be worth. I came across a listing on Alamy and it showed a different order page than what I usually see. I was using Safari at the time and I usually log in to Alamy with Firefox. Anyway, made sure I was logged out of both browsers and found the listing on both of them, and they`re different. The order page on Firefox starts with Buy this stock image now... and it goes on to list personal use, presentation or newsletters etc, etc.... On the Safari order page it lists just three options.. Personal use, Business use (p
  7. I use a Nikon EN-EL3e in my Nikon D300 and have bought third party battery packs in the past, but found they don`t seem to last as long... but, have not tried the Duracell replacement. Just came across this from Nikon support... it`s a couple of years old, but might explain why you can`t find one available. https://www.nikonimgsupport.com/eu/BV_article?articleNo=000006311&configured=1&lang=en_GB Here`s a website that supplies replacement Nikon batteries. https://www.bristolcameras.co.uk/p-nikon-en-el15-lithium-ion-rechargeable-battery.htm
  8. Thanks, Colin... I understood correctly. I have no intention of playing with fire, as you put it.
  9. I`m a little confused about model releases. It is my understanding that any person shown in an image must sign a model release for commercial use, but not for editorial use. I`ve come across many images showing people from a lot of seasoned contributors that have no model releases listed but are licensing for commercial use. Why does Alamy allow this? Am I missing something?
  10. Measures in updating... now I feel relevant... with such a small portfolio .. and growing... I now have affirmation that someone is actually looking at my stuff!.. no sales to report, though!! .. yet!!
  11. Welcome Stephen!.. looking forward to seeing your portfolio.
  12. I believe they`re upgrading the system... there`s discussions on this in the forum... somewhere I read it`s supposed to be fixed this week.
  13. Welcome Alexandr! Great portfolio... love the flamingos.

    Just browsing the categories to see what`s new and found out that several countries were listed such as Australia, Germany, India, MiddleEast, UK and the US. Canada is not mentioned even though when you search Canada there`s over a million images (1,381,692 to be exact). Being from Canada, I would respectfully like to see Canada represented in the category section.
  15. Hi Joost... welcome to Alamy! Pretty new here myself!!
  16. I`ve found having 40 tags gives a green line and good discoverability... they don`t all come to me at the time of posting, so have to rack my brain to come up with relevant tags... and the keyword (no pun intended :0) is RELEVANT! Make sure to star all 10 super tags and fill in the optional section. To have optimized visibility you must have all 50 tags.
  17. Hi! Any news?.. don`t get discouraged if your first submission didn`t make it through... just upload some more... I found it`s a great learning experience... good luck:)
  18. Hi, welcome back. I`m pretty new here myself. Just feeling my way around right now, but so far I love it. Lots of advice in the forums. Once you start uploading and see how easy it is, you`ll wonder why you didn`t do it sooner. Good luck and have fun!!
  19. Wondering how to replace an image that`s already listed for sale. I`m not happy with a particular image and would replace it with an edited version. Anyway to do this?
