Is there a reasonably priced, high quality, and smooth Tripod for video that you'd recommend?   

Alamy.com / First time submitter rejection issue
« on: December 05, 2016, 08:40 »
So i finally uploaded my first 4 pix.  They were rejected for dust or blemishes.   They didnt reject just one, but all 4.   Can i resubmit one at a time to see if one or more is ok, since they didnt say which of the 4 were bad?  Edited my post:  ok, i realize i can edit photos, i just thought that alamy had some different rules regarding editing than microstock.

Adobe Stock / Adobe Fotolia -- where to start?
« on: December 02, 2016, 13:43 »
I'm sorry if this has been asked, but i'm a relatively new contributor overall, and i'd like to start getting my photos and video on adobe/fotolia but it's just not clear where to start.  Do i register and upload with fotolia, and then my work will get posted to adobe, or do i just start off fresh with adobe and bypass fotolia, if that's even possible.
thanks for the help.    :)

Hi, I'm still new to this footage thing and was noticing other posts where people talk about color correction and other changes they make to their footage. Is this something people are consistently doing to their footage?   I haven't and hadn't intended on making such changes, but maybe i'm missing something.
Does it really help, or do agencies want original unmodified footage so their customers can choose how it's changed?

My pipe dream, as in it's never going to happen, is to have my own footage agency.  If i could put one together, I'd want it to be the best. what features and more would you want in the ideal footage agency?  thanks

Video Equipment / Sofware / Technique / iphone timelapse
« on: February 29, 2016, 10:56 »
Hi.  I've been playing with the timelapse feature in my iphone 5 with ios9 and now i'm wondering if it's up to stock footage quality or not.   Any advice? thanks

Print on Demand Forum / Site for Drawings
« on: October 07, 2015, 15:28 »
A bit off topic, but here goes.  My daughter draws what i would consider to be fantastic portrait drawings.   One is Taylor swift.   Is FAA the best place to try to sell those?   would it be a waste to put them on zazzle or elsewhere?   Thanks

Newbie Discussion / Software for stock footage
« on: September 23, 2015, 15:45 »
I currently use an old mac with iMovie, but it's not working well so i plan on getting a new windows PC soon and was wondering what software i should use for editing video?    Adobe elements premiere isn't expensive but is it the best route?  Also, has anyone used windows 10 yet?  is it better or worse than win 7 or 8?  thanks

Alamy.com / New to Alamy
« on: February 14, 2012, 16:17 »
I've hinted around this on other threads, but i'd like to just ask this outright....  Is it possible to start with Alamy now and make a living from it?  I understand it takes time, but is it possible for an average photographer like me to make a go of it in say a year or so if i upload a bunch?  (assuming i get accepted, haven't figured out what 4 pix to get to them for initial QC)  Thanks for all the help.  Roger

Newbie Discussion / Alamy vs microstock
« on: February 10, 2012, 12:10 »
Hi everyone.   It was recently suggested on this forum for me to use Alamy for my father in law's older quality walkaround portfolio.    I understand that site is great for stuff like that but will it sell?  ANd if stuff does sell there, why do microstock at all considering the much lower payouts you get?    i suppose you might be getting more sales, but isn't one $100 sale worth it over 100 .20 sales?    And think about the time invested in your portfolio just to make pennies.   I am not a great photographer, so i have no idea if i can succeed in MS, but it seems like almost any decent shot has a chance on Alamy.   Please tell me where i'm wrong and THANKS. Roger

Newbie Discussion / OLD Photo's
« on: September 15, 2011, 16:14 »
Hi everyone,   
Noob here.   Ok, my dad has this huge archive of old slides he's taken over the last 40 years.   Many of them are fantastic images of Chicago landmarks and historical places that are either gone, or not the same.    THe collection also has many non landmark, but old nonetheless, images that maybe ok for stock.    I was considering putting up a smugmug gallery to try to sell these things, but i wondered if anyone knows of a place i can sell them as stock images?    I know it's not traditional microstock, but is there a site that these might be accepted, and if so, is there some market for this type of image.  THANKS ;D
