Difficult to know where to start. In the last couple of years I've thrown myself at everything - most of which I'd never done before - and now AIM tells me I have 3022 images tagged 'sport'!

And it's highlighted how lacking my tags are in emotional references 😞

Now that is a really exceptional photo. Great choice to go monochrome as well.

I had the same problem - I eventually had to go via Google Image search! The Alamy display no long threw up the i mage location option on right click. I suppose it reduces risk of theft but with high resolution screen a screen grab will do, but not, of course, for adding an image to a fourm post.

 

Drag and drop did not seem to want to work either.
