Oh for G's sake. I can't get a image into here. Everything seem to have so much protection on Alamy I can't drag and drop like I used to.

 

Please explain how you do it.

I used to have no issues with Safari, but now have for a little while. 

 

Now have to use Chrome on the Mac's. I also had to use Chrome to setup my portfolio.

Hmm! I am on Safari on Mac so maybe you are on to something. Will give it another go then will try FF which I have and if that does not work will have to install Chrome then.

Someone explained how to do this a while ago.  Using Chrome on Win 10 PC, open image as if you were a customer. Click to enlarge, then drag that image to the top of the screen making a new window. Open that window and right click on it to obtain the address. Copy and Paste the address using "insert image from URL".

 

Too late you appear to have solved the problem!

Thank you for your help Bryan. I used FF on Mac. Drag and drop.

Here come my three:

 

The face of a young girl not impressed by what she is seeing on her mobile phone:

She never cried, so when she did, I took a photo:

First ever chocolate ice-cream:

6-months-old-little-girl-after-the-ice-c

 

 

When I see all the great images already entered and my very poor entry, I realise that I should photograph more faces, more often.

Thank you for the wake up call.
