I would just like to hear an admission that the search is in fact broken, and that it is being looked into. Or that it isn't broken and that this is the new normal.

"Broken" is the old normal around here. I want the new normal to be "fixed". I remember when keyword weighted search first came out it was super. The searches returned relevant results that made sense. Since then all the tinkering they have done with it including location based searches and searches for individuals etc have just made it worse and worse and now I suspect that it is so broken they either don't know how to fix it or can't fix it.

I'm not sure they have reached the point of realising it is broken ... you know the first step to fixing a problem is admitting you have a problem

So, ready to go again. Have not quite recovered from my African adventure so it will be nice once I arrive in Thailand and can settle down for a while. Sun is shining in Stockholm and it is warm for the season so I could have stayed a few more days. Wish Thailand was a little closer, don't look forward to another long flight, and even less to the airports, have to change planes in Helsinki (flying Finnair).


Probably forgot lots of things but fortunately almost everthing is available in Thailand. I did empty the trash and send the post on to my sisiter to deal with whatever comes up while I am away.

I hope you'll have a nice flight. I wish I could go to a warm place for a part of the winter. I would't do it for the whole winter though, because I love to ski, but it would be nice to have some sun for a change.

Safe journey, Britta. It's perfect here - mists, sun,autumn colours and freshness in the air.

I complained earlier this week about this image being unable to be purchased:
file_thumbview_approve
I'm pleased to say, about a day and half after I complained it was fixed and since then has been purchased twice. 2 DLs and 8 views! Unfortunately both XS sales and both no doubt due to BM being busted and displaying new files, but still, I'm pleased. Go Sammy! (he is actually trying not to laugh in this photo)

Nice shot Dave. I suspect it will do well for you. 


After almost five years, one of my first images (the 45th accepted during my 2nd month on iStock. Boy I was an uploading machine back then...) has finally hit flames.

Congrats on the flame, Dan.


Dave, the buyers didn't think 'BM's bust so I'll buy this image'; they saw your image (whether because of BM or a search doesn't matter) and it met their needs. If BM is skewed towards new images at the mo, now is the time to upload a lot and make the most of it - if you can.

Congrats, Dan!


Here's one for good morning from the White desert in Egypt. Shot more than 3 years ago, but didn't have time to process and upload them before.

Thanks! I found out that I'm not processing some images agressively enough. A gentle processing suits some of the images, but I like to be agressive on such landscapes. But it then lowers the quality a bit, so it took me quite some time to get it to the point, where I think it has a good chance of getting accepted. Otherwise an overprocessed rejection might come, but even if it does, I won't be very disappointed. I have over 95% acceptance rate this year and I'm uploading like crazy, I can challenge that a bit.

Beaautiful Tadej! Hope it makes it.


Arrrived in Thailand erly this morning (middle of the night in Sweden, Thailand is 6 hours ahead). Now just doing nothing waiting for my soal to catch up fter all this travelling between continents.  Had some friend living here last week so there were some left overs in the fridge so I don't even have to go shopping until tomorrow. Warm (30°C ≈ 90F) and humid, a difference from Sweden and also Kenya, where it was not very hot and much drier.


Waiting to start processing African images until my head is a little clearer.
