  2. Of course, but some might interpret this to mean that the extent of JPEG compression doesn't matter. JPEGs saved at low quality levels such as 2 or 3 will have more compression artifacts than those saved at 10 or 12. Best to save at the highest JPEG quality levels to be on the safe side.

  4. I'm a loner by nature. In my professional days I would schmooze with clients and collaborate with art directors and food stylists. It was all very convivial. However, my most favorite thing about stock is that all the schmoozing is behind me now and I can happily wait for a bug or a cloud to crawl into just the right spot to take the photo. The fact that the remuneration is often barely enough for coffee these days is my least favorite. As for knees, it's a problem, one of them in particular. I usually hike with a monopod, ostensibly as an aid to photography but also as a fairly well disguised cane, a big help in getting up from a squatting position. keeping my balance, etc.

  7. I'm 75. It would be great to have one of those younger, springier bodies to traipse around in but coming of age in the mid-sixties was a kick in the pants and I'd hate to have missed it. Maybe it's because of that that every time I hear the name of the iPhone picture site we aren't supposed to mention, Iko Iko starts running through my head. (Talk-in' 'bout, hey now hey now I-ko, I-ko, un-day, Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-né, jock-a-mo fee na-né)
  8. With Alamy, I have the option of not participating in the UK Newspaper cut-rate deal and so I don't. However, with distribution, there is no such option. I opted out last April and got a distributor sale a month ago, but fortunately it wasn't a bulk rate discount sale. In an email conversation with Alamy, I said I'd be happy to participate in Distribution again if I could exclude their distributors' bulk rate discount sales. It bothers me that an agency can go to their customers and say, "We can sell you almost anything in the Alamy catalog for pennies on the dollar" (or cents on the euro as the case usually is). I made the choice to be exclusive with Alamy, but there's no point in it if the back door remains wide open. As to your initial question, I have no idea how long the lag time is.
