  1. Or the software actually combines with another tag
  2. I would spend the time to supertag all of my images if it wasn't like playing whack-a-mole to get the star to turn blue.
  3. Yes, very frustrating. I thought at one point, I had identified the sweet spot, but just spend a long time on a handful of images with the cursor flipping between the hand, the arrow and the four-sided arrow. Didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. I am using a 32" monitor.
  4. How had you sold live news photos in the past if you aren't in the live news program? Is it something new. I've been a contributor here for 10 years, but never paid attention to the live news part. Then 3 times in the last months, I've had a newsworthy image. Don't really care if it goes through live news, but I can't wait several days to go through the normal process.
  5. Just went through this process. Good news is that my latest editorial sale where I could grab a good tearsheet was sold from Alamy. Bad news, I had to jump through many hoops to create a < 1MB PDF file. Now I wait.
  6. I searched through a few of these but couldn't quite find my answer. On my dashboard, it says, 78 images not on sale. If I click on that, it brings up my Image Manager with a window showing 17 images. Under that is says, All 20 | Not on sale 15. So first, what is the discrepancy between 78, 20 and 15? Next, if I click on one, I have found in the past, they are usually missing a caption. These are not. In addition, if I click on any image, in the pane on the right it says, On Sale at the top. In every case, I clicked on the caption, which had anywhere from 15-25 characters, put the cursor at the end of the caption and entered a space. They immediately change to On Sale. Easy enough to do that to 15 (or 17 as the case may be) images, but what about the rest of the 60? TIA
  7. When you're at a beautiful travel destination and someone asks you why you're taking a picture of a telephone pole.
  8. Thanks, I sent an email to support. Wasn't sure of live news email address
  9. Not sure how to contact re this. I know there is a newsworthy upload process, but this one has been on the site for years. Just sold a cruise ship image on the site. Don't know if it's related, but the one below has been selling like crazy on another site due to the measles quarantine in the news today. Don't know of there is a way to push it to the top. I have modified the keywords, but other than that, didn't know how to handle. I never registered for the news side of the house. Freewinds Cruise Ship Docked in Aruba.jpg - HWG908

  11. I think I have found the secret to hitting the stars. Don't aim for them. Click just to the right of the star. Or if you move in from the right where the cursor is a four-headed arrow move cursor, click as soon as it changes to a regular pointer. I've gone through quite a few images with the page at normal zoom and it's pretty flawless.
  12. I just had one removed under this ban. It may or may not be okay. I don't know, because I don't know what image it was. They sent a reference number, but since it's removed, I can't find it. Is there someplace to find removed images?
  13. I usually give up before I score that high.
  14. I wish they would make those little stars easier to click. I feel like I am playing a video game sometimes.
