  1. Maybe staff are now working from home?
  2. Hi Andrea, spent some time in beautiful Italy a couple of years ago. A wonderful country. I'm also new here, it will be interesting to see how we go. Love your spartan B&W architecture and 'underground' shots I found on your website. Cheers, Kent.
  3. Thanks M.E. it's a temping work around. THough i don't see why we cant have some sort of - sort actions - 'by date' 'filename'. As one might expect. My latest upload is 156 pictures and other than a couple of 'sets' the images are strewn across a wide number of rows. It does make things a lot more difficult and I've had to work on not getting cranky! We know they use the date stamp in the meta so i imagine it should not be too hard to implement a sort action. Might take your advice and do my next upload in 'sets' though. Thank you.
  4. I can't help but notice that after my images have passed QC they are in what seems to be in the image manager in a mostly random sequence . On occasion some images that go together are grouped together, but others are split apart. The pictures do not seem to be sorted by date/time or even by filename as far as I can tell - I suspect it's fixed by upload timing. This is an issue of some significance as I am typically uploading around 50 or so pictures at a time, often of differning shot dates and subjects. They should be grouped to speed up work flow but I have to jump about trying to locate them. It's not very efficient. Would it be possible to sort by date shot? Or to have the facility to sort by date or filename in the image manager?
  5. No need to sell/buy this image; it had already done it's work for free!!!! but give them 10 years and someone may remember and want a copy.
  6. yYes, was just remembering going out to shoot construction on the fly.. Not on private property; is not taken well; and tracts the wrong sort of attention. Best to keep moving. But all good when you are commissioned; as I too sometimes were --?
  7. Hi There, I'm new too and am yet to sell. But looking at your second image I thin you could enhance your position with a stronger caption and more tags which may (or may not) help. The cow has long horns (we don't have those in Australia) so up to 50 image tags you have more you could add 'long horn cow' 'cow with calf' 'rancher on horseback' (gaucho?) 'traditional cattle farming' 'sunny day' 'rancher with stock whip' 'mounted rancher and cattle in pasture' 'grey long horn cow' 'italian animal husbandry' 'stock farming' 'pasture' is this traditional farming? For meat or for dairy? All these questions can and I think should be answered in the tags and descriptions. I ask myself questions about my picture to help me write the caption then the tags. I love the shots; you've got lovely good quality pictures. Taking a little more time to make a more complete picture with the words; I am hoping will help make me sales. I hope it helps you too. Cheers, Kent.
  8. Not the only time but most memorable. Late 2012 at Circular Quay Sydney; I have my brand new Fuji X-Pro1 and a 60mm lens with long shade on it. I'm staying in the one spot, but not for long and I'm photographing the legs and feet of people walking by - because I want a banner shot for my blog Street Fashion Sydney.. Well two Maritime Services Rangers quickly turn up (that whole area is some special zone) and start asking me what I'm doing. Then some guy next to me tells them 'I was pointing the camera at him'. I look him up and down, giving him the once over and - in front of the two ranges say 'I don't think so' meaning of course I would NEVER be interested in photographing the whining fool. I showed the ranges what was on my camera and shock horror - pictures of the pavement with legs shoes, bags nothing else!!! Even so there was some argy bargy and mention of getting the police - I told them to go ahead as I was aware of my rights. But.. as I was finished anyway; put away my kit and wandered off. That said; I think things have actually improved; or I'm looking less threatening. No hint of trouble in years. Touch wood..
  9. Hi George, I'm six weeks new myself. Hope it goes well for you. Cheers :-) Kent
  10. Problem solved.. I now understand the different columns. Sorry, still a complete newbie. Have deleted original info out of embarrassment! Thanks Kent
  11. Thanks Wim, I tried Paulette's suggestion; the % is the wildcard symbol for this database - I tried the wrong one! I am finding the information on this site tricky to find. I google this forum as I can not find a link on my dashboard page! Maybe that's just me though! Cheers. Kent.
  12. Ah! So it does have wildcard searches I used the wrong symbol! Thank you.

    I'm here looking for buyers so money spent is the best statistic for me. I would like some wildcard search options so I can investigate the search database better though.
  14. I experienced this today on a friends computer. Page blank!!! So I searched a term for an easy to find image of mine, clicked my name on the image and there they all where. Now if I can just work out how to 'successfully' upload a profile image (it rejects the google image link) and sort out that portfolio page too - I saw one today with multiple subject tabs - that looks interesting! More research required!
