  1. Also it gets you past QC with a lower image quality and gets it up for sale quicker
  2. These sort of images have always been passed off as Live news from time to time, I haven't seen the images but they are no different to those depicting "Britain bakes in the heatwave" with generic beach shots? Bumper week of visitors to Zoo as kids holidays are hit by wet weather? Strawberries sales plummet as wet August continues? Perhaps this is why Alamy removed access to so many of us?
  3. Thanks all, I thought that might be the case, I have in the past submitted the Live news image. I like your idea Mr Standfast and may try it at some point when it is not too far from home.
  4. Personal use (apparently) only just $$ I'm not really sure how to post a larger size image?
  5. I have had a long break from stock, not that I am a massive contributor but I do get the odd sale now and again. I am looking at giving it another go and see that I now have to apply to get access to Live News. Fair enough but one of the pre-requisites for the application is "Please upload a recent PDF of a news clipping showing your published work" so is this catch 22 or is there anyway I can get accepted to make it worth going looking for news images? Cheers Steve
  6. Perhaps ironically I have just had another sale which was 'Personal Use' and at $12 was significantly more than the image I mentioned above at $4.84, it remains to be seen whether it really is "Personal Use" 😔
  7. I did but clicked on the thumbnail which takes you to the buy page.
  8. Okay well I heard back from Alamy fairly quickly and they pointed out there was no PU license for this image. That bit was my error, having seen $4.84 I jumped to the wrong conclusion and the Buy Image page defaults to PU radio button. However it turns out the website I linked to had no license for the image so they will "add it to the unauthorised use sheet" I guess holding my breath would not be recommended
  9. Thanks Cecile I couldn't find that but submitted that as well now. 😁
  10. Thanks John, just sent it in with link and screenshot
  11. I have an image that has sold recently for a total of $4.84 for "Personal Use" I have found it being used clearly on a business website. Who should i report this to and are Alamy likely to bother doing anything about it? Thanks
  12. I don't think you need to be quite afraid of it as he makes out in the video, I have started working with video recently (not for stock) and whilst what he says about memory requirements is true you can edit in proxy and then it is all quite manageable with 8MB RAM. Colour correction in Premier Pro actually, the basics at least work in a similar manner to Lightroom. Yes it is a steep learning curve but not something to shy away from if you wish to tackle it. Whether there is any money in it is of course another matter and it does require a lot of additional kit
