  1. Live news workflow - Android, Press IPTC

    Hi Katie - never understood the EyeFi thing either, but no, it doesn't need that, you just choose a directory on your phone where the photos are located. I transfer from camera to phone via WiFi, locate the pictures where MoPhotos is set to look. I have some preset IPTC templates, apply those, and ftp out. Free version never worked out for me - paid for version is cheap (about £4.00 if I remember rightly) but highly effective. Neither this or Press IPTC was simple to configure for me, as I said, bit of a luddite with apps, but in the end I preferred MoPhotos, and I use it on a regular basis. Worth pointing out that as Paul says above, if I've got anything truly worth the effort, I bung the laptop in the boot and use regular ftp ... Mobile phone screens may be a lot better than they were, but they're still tiny tiny! Tony
  2. As well as my DSLR's, I regulary submit images from a Canon G5X, 1" sensor, cracking files, no quality issues.
  3. Live news workflow - Android, Press IPTC

    I know several people here use Press IPTC, personally I use the paid for version of MoPhotos - works fine and (IMHO) was easier to set up for a luddite like me. For LiveNews I shoot RAW plus a medium JPEG, which I can submit quickly and easily.
  4. Royal Wedding - worth the hassle?

    Local newspapers will often to tip you off as and when something happens in exchange for a few free shots these days - they often have no staff photographers and zero buying-in budget, so a tit-for-tat deal works to their advantage. You can always say you're too busy if the story doesn't sound it's worth the effort, and on the odd occasion it might pay dividends.

  6. No Photo Sales

    +1 In approximate terms here, one sale per month per thousand images. You're a long way from making a sale I'm afraid. Plus... there are 27,251 pictures here on Alamy of the Taj Mahal, you need to make yours stand out, with composition, post processing and great captions/key words. "The stunning Taj Mahal in Agra, the heart of India. We spent a few weeks working with Seva Mandir, and just had to stop at the Taj Mahal on the way" As Danny points out, no-one cares about your trip to India, think like a buyer, not like a blogger. On the upside, if your main interest is astrophotography, you may find a handy niche that'll serve you well. On the downside, if it takes that long to pop up one image, again, you're a long,long way from a sale...
  7. 1st sale on 30th Sept 2003 for $78.41 (1/8th page newspaper use in those days ....) I had 99 images on Alamy.
  8. That's it?!

    My average price per sale this year is currently $29.00, lower than last year ($40.00), but still worthwhile...

  11. Contributors playing the Live News system?

    People often upload as they go for news events, and the LiveNews desk consolidate them as and when. As far as I know, the LiveNews team isn't 24/7, so sometimes these can stockpile before someone is able to bundle them together.
