  1. https://www.alamy.com/myupload/index.aspx?login=1 Anytime I try uploading my first 3 Stock photos for approval though it shows 3 photos are submitted it ends up appearing as 2 in it's course of processing which is ultimately unapproved. This is 8th time it's happening. Please help me out. Thanks
  2. Are you more digital or analog? I'm not talking about whether you shoot film, I know most here shoot primarily or entirely digital ... and have done so for more than a decade. I mean in your approach to life. I love the digital world but my approach to life still has a very strong analog component. For example, I love Lightroom and have used it since v 1.0. I started using it while working as a digital tech for a photographer several years my junior. I love technology. But.... I expected that once I got all 80,000 or so images completely organized, it would make it easier to keep track of where everything was, which photos I uploaded where, which are RM or RF. That occurred around 2012, but while I can find any photo in the blink of an eye, it still doesn't do everything I want. For organizing some projects printing out old fashioned contact sheets make the job easier. Sometimes I just need the ability to jot down notes. I've been using a computer for about half my life now, but those first 30 analog years still mean I sometimes feel better with paper and pencil in front of me - easier to jot notes. I also have been loving the concept of keeping a bullet journal, which I've done for about a year and a half now. I have one for everyday stuff, and a second with sections for stock and fine art photo ideas and processing notes when I do something artsy or learn something new in PS or other software. So, we know that a fair number of us belong to the 60+ crowd. That means in college a computer took up an entire room, but a few years later PC's were on the scene. My husband is years younger than I am, so he used a computer (in a school computer lab) rather than an electric typewriter, though we are probably both equally proficient on the computer by now. He likes to keep a notebook too. How about you? Interested to know how your organize your day, your notes, your work, your ideas? e.g. I have a notebook with blank pages where I draw out photo shoot ideas. I do most of my reading (NYTimes, Washington Post, and various other magazines and newspapers as well as most books on my Kindle) but I love a notebook for writing in, even though I keep scores of notes on my laptop too. Still love the feel of paper and pen. I even bought a fountain pen recently.
  3. I have some old medium format images taken 30 years ago as a student that I think still have merit. Random street folk and other people who will probably died as they were old then. Some groups of kids on the streets etc. I have no way of tracking them down so can I submit here as editorial having no model release ? Thanks.
  4. Hi, New guy here I have couple of questions I couldn't google answers to... I hope you guys could help me here. First just wondering about if it's allowed to have image sold as rights managed licence exclusively and also have the exact same photo selling on print on demand site (Fine Art America) at the same time? As far as I know Fine Art America only sells prints and now licences? Also if I'm having a original photo selling as right managed licence in Alamy but also I have different edit of the same photo for example added light spot with lens flare and reduced size and selling it on microstock site... Is this allowed to do? Thanks!
  5. How do I upload an avatar to the forum? Can I do it via dropbox somehow? At one point I had two accounts on Alamy - one for reportage and one for commercial way back when they required me to do it that way, and I had an avatar in the forum. When Alamy later combined the two for me into my reportage (newer) account, I had to re-join the forum and haven't been able to upload an avatar. Thanks for your help!
  6. Hi, I'm completely new to Alamy or selling photographs online and I just have a legal question which confuses me a bit: In addition to others, I have a lot of nice pictures that were taken from public streets but feature recognizable buildings in the background (for example from the Vegas strip. Pics that show some of the hotels in the background, day or night) Also cityscape views taken from my room that show a number of the hotels, but from a far distance. One can read the hotel logos (such as "Caesar's Palace," "Bally's" etc, but, again, it's at a distance, no real details of the hotels themselves.) Can such pictures be sold, or would I need permission from every single hotel in the shot? What if the shot shows one entire hotel (Bellagio with fountains in foreground, for example.) I could understand if it is for commercial use, such as someone using the pictures for T-shirts, mugs etc, but what if someone writes a blog or news article about Vegas and just needs a pic to accompany the story? There are plenty of street shots in newspapers, I can't imagine that the photographer would need permission from absolutely everyone and everything in the picture in such instances, they just need a nice shot of the place they are writing about. Could I specify it's for newspaper use only and still submit the picture? What if there is a movie poster or product such as a soft drink in a picture? Do I need permission from all of those companies as well, even if it's not for commercial use? Sorry if that's a dumb question, but it just confuses me, because it would seem that most bloggers/newspapers have more use for shots of hotels/landmarks/cityscapes than they do for the more artistic ones, and they have to get these shots from somewhere. If Alamy may not be the right place to sell those kinds of pictures, is there another site that does? What about sites that sell cell phone pics, are they less stringent about this? I may not be able to use Stockimo, since I don't have an I-phone. BTW, these pics would not have recognizable people in it, just wondering about the buildings. Thanks for any clarification!
  7. Can anyone identify the insect on this beach rose? It was taken in Rhode Island in July. I'm thinking may some sort of gnat? Thanks! If it's not clear enough in this, how would I set it up to place a close up crop in dropbox for people to see? Does it matter for keywording since it's small in the photo? Any help and advice welcome. Thanks!
