  1. many times when i type in the address, the entire underscore line disappear. then need to refresh and type again or go back to Mandatory then go back Optional then the line appear again to type in the address. can this problem be fix by Alamy?
  2. A map used to appear once I started adding info in the location field of image manager; lately I haven't seen that. Any recommendations about how specific this should be? For example, is an exact street address ideal? Intersection OK? (ie, Main St. and First St.) Also, is "1234 Main St. Los Angeles California" OK, or do I need to include country?
  3. Hi all, How many of you compile a list of 'pics/locations that you want to take/visit? I seem to be forever adding to my list of places to go but never finding time to visit, although I am probably in the vicinity quite often. Perhaps it is lack of time, absent mindedness or not being methodical enough but wouldn't it be useful if there were an app that triggered an alert when you came within distance of a particular spot? Does anyone know if there is such a thing? It would make the job of remembering where you need to take your next shot that much easier. Surely Google and Amazon must have something that helps them deliver specific adds to customers based on your geolocation? Is there anything out there for us mere mortals?
  4. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone would recommend any of the various smartphone apps for helping determine sunrise, sunset etc? Came across Ephemeris and it looks as if it could be useful but perhaps a little complicated? This link is pretty comprehensive but better from the horse's mouth, so to speak, IMO! :-) Any suggestions?
  5. Hi, I've been adding my images to Lightrooms map but the embedded GPS co-ordinates aren't being used in "Location" in AIM, I still have to manually add them. Has anyone got this to successfully work from Lightroom? I've double checked they are in the exported image files, under "GPS" and Lat, Long, Altitude. Thanks, James
  6. Does the Google Maps-powered location adding device in IM work for ANYONE?
  7. I've 3500+ images on my port but following many contributor advices i decided to improve my existing images keywording instead of adding new ones. In particular looking at My Images i recently noticed that i've some Views related to the Location .. i mean , just the location keyword itself. For i.e. i've thousand of views for "Mali" which is strange.. I never imagined buyers searching for the country or the city only. In the above example i imagined searches like "Mali school" or "Mali children", from which i actually had views but much fewer than searches for the word "Mali" standalone. Do you also experience such searches? It affects in a bad way my CTR and i wonder if it would be better to associate location with other keywords, removing also the country/city keyword from the caption field. How do you manage these situations?
  8. I did a search on IM for Toronto. Randomly clicked on an image of a sign for the Air Canada Centre. I noticed I didn't have Toronto in the keywords. Wondered if it was leaving out keywords so went to the image in Alamy database. Didn't have Toronto in either keywords or caption. A search in the database with Toronto does not bring up my image, but it does in IM. So it looks like IM also searches location as well as caption and keywords. If I search my Alamy Homepage it says I have 753 images with Toronto. In IM I have 815. I wish there was a way to know which ones were only in location. Jill
  9. Alamy, please post new 'Manage Images' general info - including your video - in a place contributors can find easily. (While I was taking tour of new Manage Images, I prematurely closed area with 'View Video' link. Now I have questions, but can't locate that video.) Your new Manage Images certainly looks promising. Thanks - Ann
  10. Here is a blog post that should be required reading for every photographer. https://diglloyd.com/blog/2016/20161125_1800-destroying-to-make-the-picture.html It is one of the reasons why I only give an approximate location for my images, and certainly no GPS. An approximate location is enough for any editor client trying to write a caption, without attracting hordes of photographers. The blog post only refers to wilderness, but it also happens in the country and the city as well. Ask any city homeowner or a farmer residing at a good picture location. Trampled crops, gates left open, cattle stampeded, photographers parking in a city private driveway, trespass in backyards, the list goes on. Take nothing but pictures, do not even leave footprints.
  11. Thanks to all those who contributed their images for the September 2016 Challenge. All submissions were superb works, making my choice of the finalists just that much more difficult. Here is the poll-page anyways. Voting closes October 5 midnight, the winner picks the next topic. Good luck & best wishes to all here. The finalists : 1. DickJ : B4EF5B : Desert View. Grand Canyon, AZ 2. vpics : EA9X44 : The former Berlin Wall with a mural of Honecker and Breshnev kissing. 3. Olivier Parent : E9NKK8 : Paris - La Seine river and the Eiffel tower seen from Alexandre III bridge 4. Broken Pixel : EY1N0X : View of Moscow Kremlin in winter. All the colors are real. ) 5. wiskerke : GGN9WP : And we love to party now and then... 6. John Richmond : G517KN : Towering cliffs of Lower Jurassic Bridport Sand formations at West Bay, Dorset, UK, loom over walkers on a misty June day 7. arterra : BGPAH1 : Tourists and illuminated mediaeval façades of guildhalls at the Graslei at night, Ghent, Belgium 8. MDM : BMWJ2M : Ireland 2: Connemara, County Galway - stacks of hand-cut peat (turf in Ireland) drying on a bog, to be used as fuel for heating, with the Twelve Bens mountains in background Kumar, India
  12. When I started with Alamy I was new to stock photography and foolishly uploaded and added captions, locations, tags and other attributes in Manage Images for many of my images. Is there anyway to download a spreadsheet with all this information so I can more easily add them back to my images in Lightroom?
  13. I am a relatively new Mac user (OSX 10.8). There are many things I still need to learn, so any help would be very much appreciated. In Develop mode in Lightroom 4.4, when I tick Soft Proofing box at the bottom, you can choose a profile on the righthand top, underneath the histogram. If I choose 'Other…', it brings up a list of profiles that I can tick but the one I want is not on the list. I have two questions in this regard. If you go to Macintosh HD/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Profiles/Recommended, there are profiles that are not included in the above mentioned Lightroom list, how do I make them included in the Lightroom list? How do I install a new ICC profile, for example a printer profile, in Lightroom? In which folder? When you look through 'Finder', there are folders with a small arrow at the bottom lefthand corner. What does this mean? Many thanks in advance Sung
  14. I've started to geotag my photos. In my case I don't have a fancy new camera with GPS, but you can use your phone's GPS too. Anybody else doing this? Seems like Alamy offering location that isn't manually entered could be beneficial for photo buyers. Say if a photo buyer was looking for photos of specific neighborhood, building, landmark etc., they could just go to a map and explore photos. Even if the photographer didn't know to keyword with what the buyer was looking for. This is possible on Flickr for example and I use Flickr maps to explore and research an area before visiting. I also find it helps keywording a lot.
