User Awards

Quote: Slightly off topic but a question I've been pondering for a while. I've received few awards and each one is gratefully received and I always thank the giver by p.m. I've given more awards than I've been given and while most people acknowledge personally or on the posted photo comments, some don't respond at all.

Now, I don't give awards or votes for reciprocal reasons but it would be good just to have my 'gift' acknowledged by a comment on one of my photos if a p.m. is too much to ask.

Am I expecting too much?

A very fair comment, in my opinion. On the rare occasions I have not received any acknowledgement of an award given, it does miff me somewhat, but that's the nature of some. Manners don't cost anything, and a short pm doesn't either.

User Awards
I, too, feel that the user award system has gone a little haywire now, To be able to give 4 awards per day has, to me, made the awards less 'special' than they were when you could only give one per day. I realise that you don't have to give 4 awards per day, but the mere fact that you can makes one feel that members will make use of the four awards, whatever. I feel that they are now being given to images that otherwise would have been overlooked for an award.

Why enter if you don't want it?

Quote: Hi, I have just seen in the for sale section a prize that was won in the ePhotozine Xmas draw and the reason for the sale QUOTE; " not something that I would use"
Why then enter the draw to win an item and take away the chance of someone who would use it?
Xmas spirit gone out the window.

Good point made here Wink

Help needed with storing pictures
Do you just copy the folders and paste them onto an external hard drive? If so, what you have copied should be identical on the hard drive and viewable as on the pc.

Thanks for that, Adrian.
I'm useless (and wary!) of messing about with the pc, in case I really c*ck it up, I think maybe a trip to my local computer shop might be in order Smile

Does anyone know how to get rid of this problem? Once or twice a day I get a blue screen with SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED appearing as a error message, the pc then closes down and re-opens. I am not at all computer-minded, so if there is an easy way to resolve this, I would be most grateful to hear of it.

What point and shoot camera for weddings?

Quote: Just shown this thread to my daughter,
something about private bits of anatomy being removed if a paid photographer tried using a toy camera at her wedding, was uttered.


I think I would remove the private bits of anatomy from the person who uttered the words 'toy camera' Sad
I use a point and shoot camera (Panasonic DMC-TZ7) and am very impressed with the results it gives.
Many people have commented that this little camera produces just as good an image as some of the highly expensive cameras,

Should you upload images on flickr if you want to sell them?

Quote: If you're looking to sell images then probably the best site is Alamy:

ALAMY

I've used them for several years with some succcess. Read their guidance notes as they are quite helpful.

I think Flickr was linked with Getty Images in some way but I'm not sure about that.

I checked out ALAMY, and note that they will NOT accept images taken with a compact camera, which I use. Who is to say that a compact camera can't take as good an image as a DSLR?

Interested to see you are having the same problem as me, Kate, I have been inundated with pop-ups whilst using ePZ for about a week now. I suggest you put a report in to the team, as I did, and David was very helpful in advising me what to do. I have been free of the wretched pop-ups all of today, long may it last Smile
