  1. Hi James, Thanks for the compliment, you got some nice images today too by the looks of it. I think todays route made getting nice clean images a lot harder, last years route was much better photographically. Yeah we will have to stop and have a chat some day. I just looked at the How to sell Live News images' webpage on the Alamy website and saw this "The caption needs to be in this format: town/city, country, date (in format 1st April, 2015.), description, credit. For example: Los Angeles, USA. 1st Apr, 2015. Elton John trips over as he walks along the red carpet at the 101st Grammy Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles, USA. Credit: John Smith/Alamy Live News." I used to always use the format 14th September etc but then my images were changed to Sep so i think i will pop an email off to the live news team to get a definitive answer,. It's not really a big issue but speed is key in this game and i want to be 100% correct so the live news team can concentrate on pushing the images out and not correcting my mistakes.
  2. đŸ˜¥ Also noticed i made a mistake of using Sep instead of September. Looking at the news feed there are different variations some people use Sep some use September, some use 14 some use 14th. Can we have a definitive answer on what format should be used?
  3. Just uploaded a set of images and made sure that i followed the instructions that were emailed to contributors on Aug 22nd. This was the instruction Captions must be in this format (in line with International media preferences): City or Village or Town where picture was shot, Country where picture was shot. Date the picture was shot - Please spell out the month, we ping to the US and they require this. Who is in the picture - left to right. What is going on in the picture including any interesting facts. Credit: Your Credit/Alamy Live News For example - Cuckmere Haven, UK. 15 August, 2019. Artist Keith Pettit places the first a series of steam-bent chestnut spheres on the beach at Cuckmere Haven in East Sussex. Made in collaboration with trug maker Charlie Groves, the complex shapes are inspired by the skeletal remains of ancient coccoliths - the calcium carbonate remains that make up the chalk of the South Downs. The exhibition ‘What Lies Beneath’ will be at the iconic coastguard cottages overlooking the Seven Sisters cliffs (pictured). Credit: Jim Holden/Alamy Live News. So just looked at my images and the format of the date has been changed on some of my images, i uploaded as per the instructions above 'Bath, Somerset, UK. 14 Sep, 2019.' and some have now been changed to Bath, Somerset, UK. 14th Sep, 2019. So are we supposed to follow the emailed instructions or do we revert back to using 14th etc? Does anybody know?

  5. One from today. London, UK, 6th September, 1997. Funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales. Princess Diana's coffin draped with the royal standard is shown being carried on a gun carriage accompanied by eight members of the Welsh Guards as the funeral procession makes it's way along Horse Guards Road.
  6. No i only noticed my image on the index page early this morning, that's what caught my eye. Looks like they updated the page at least once last night with other images, our images are still on the index page that i posted the link to.
  7. Live news image usages Mirror online 27 / 28 /12/18 https://www.mirror.co.uk/all-about/weather Paul Lawrenson Ashford, Kent, UK. 27 Dec, 2018. UK Weather: The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for fog in the South East and warns of possible delays to bus and train services. Cars parked in a foggy car park. - Image ID: R9RPGB One of mine Chippenham, Wiltshire, UK. 27th December, 2018. As foggy weather continues to affect many parts of the UK, a woman is pictured crossing a bridge over the river Avon in Chippenham, Wiltshire. - Image ID: R9RP06 Looks like the images were used when the page first went live but page has been updated now, images are at present still visible on weather stories index page
  8. I need to do a bit more work on it but here's mine https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/lynchpics
  9. If you read through the comments on that article you will see that it looks like the infringer photoshopped in a stock image of the bus. Note point 8 in the judgement: "They combined and manipulated Mr Houghton's images as well as an iStockphoto image of a Routemaster bus. The bus was resized to fit and the road marks were changed to be consistent. The stock image was used for parts of the bus. Annex 2 was the result." Annex 2 is the image at the bottom. This shows that the defendants intended to produce a similar image, which wasn't produced independently (which would've been a different matter).
