  1. I've been around for some time now and still don't really understand how the KW are optimized. I've read that the color bar in the AIM is not only unimportant, but even harmful. Instead it is always pointed out to look at the CTR and remove "inappropriate" KW. But what does that mean? Does a CTR of 0.00 mean that the KW were bad? Example: This picture was viewed by customers, with the KWs construction site aerial view The picture fits perfectly to the KWs. But the customer didn't zoom in, so the CTR is 0,00. What should I do now to improve the KWs? I am a bit helpless with the whole topic and would be grateful for any support. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
  2. Of course you must develop the DNG-Rawfile with LR or something similar. P4P and Mavic Air pass QC, if photos were taken under good light conditions. Mavic 2 Pro I did not try photos yet, but here a panorama, which passed QC: https://www.alamy.com/360-degree-panoramic-view-of-360-degree-panorama-of-a-field-and-a-gravel-pond-next-to-a-forest-and-a-country-road-taken-with-the-drone-in-flight-image227170360.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=21C003BC-FB91-4EBD-8470-522E8953C7DD&p=538862&n=5&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=11&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3Dbar%26st%3D11%26sortby%3D2%26qt%3Dshore%20aerial%20forest%20pond%26qt_raw%3Dshore%20aerial%20forest%20pond%26qn%3D%26lic%3D3%26edrf%3D0%26mr%3D0%26pr%3D0%26aoa%3D1%26creative%3D%26videos%3D%26nu%3D%26ccc%3D%26bespoke%3D%26apalib%3D%26ag%3D0%26hc%3D0%26et%3D0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3D0%26loc%3D0%26ot%3D0%26imgt%3D0%26dtfr%3D%26dtto%3D%26size%3D0xFF%26blackwhite%3D%26cutout%3D%26archive%3D1%26name%3DFrank%20Heinz%26groupid%3D%26pseudoid%3D{A0FBD2BD-73F6-4A9C-83CF-5809C92A67E1}%26userid%3D%26id%3D%26a%3D%26xstx%3D0%26cbstore%3D0%26resultview%3DsortbyPopular%26lightbox%3D%26gname%3D%26gtype%3D%26apalic%3D%26tbar%3D0%26pc%3D%26simid%3D%26cap%3D1%26customgeoip%3DDE%26vd%3D0%26cid%3D%26pe%3D%26so%3D%26lb%3D%26pl%3D0%26plno%3D%26fi%3D0%26langcode%3Den%26upl%3D0%26cufr%3D%26cuto%3D%26howler%3D%26cvrem%3D0%26cvtype%3D0%26cvloc%3D0%26cl%3D0%26upfr%3D%26upto%3D%26primcat%3D%26seccat%3D%26cvcategory%3D*%26restriction%3D%26random%3D%26ispremium%3D1%26flip%3D0%26contributorqt%3D%26plgalleryno%3D%26plpublic%3D0%26viewaspublic%3D0%26isplcurate%3D0%26saveQry%3D%26editorial%3D1%26t%3D0%26edoptin%3D
  3. Yes, it is a bit cut, resolution is 5472 x 3648 px. Here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1A5kkznkUoynKEl1B_wq3MJfMUUuBnaUl you can download a original DNG-file of mavic 2 pro, from first flight, automatic mode.
  4. I fully agree that the title and description should only mention what is actually visible in the picture. But I don't think the keywords belong to the image description. The keywords, unlike the title, are not necessarily public. They only serve to support the search process and not to describe the photo. Not even the explanation. That's why I think that the keywords can contain anything that helps to find the photo. Completely independent and detached from the content of the picture. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
  5. That's really very hard to understand. Suppose a customer is looking for a house in the snow. And there are (e.g.) 100 pictures with a house in the snow. All 100 pictures have the same keywords "house, snow, white, cold and winter", none others. If the customer now zooms 3 of the 100 images and 97 doesn't, then the 3 images were more interesting than the other 97. But it wouldn't make sense to change the keywords. Really very difficult to understand, especially because alamy also confuses the contributor with the color bar. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
  6. I think, using the words "drunk" and "homeless" in the caption ist wrong in the case of this photo. Maybe he ist drunk, maybe he is tired or exhausted, and maybe he has a big house and sleeps on the ground because he is drunk. We do not know. Therfore, not in the caption. But, it looks like as if he could be drunk and perhaps is homeless. So I would take "drunk" and "homeless" to the keywords, so customer can find it.
  7. A lot of questions that cannot be answered the same way for all drones. Let's stick with the Phantom: In hovering flight, i.e. at one point, the threats try to remain as stable as possible. For this it uses the GPS and the compass at higher altitudes. Whether the barometer also plays a role, I do not know. In closer distance to the ground, the exact number of meters depends on the version, ground cameras are also used (a phantom has beside the photo camera also a quite momentum cameras and sensors installed). The whole thing makes the drone quite stable, but not yet perfectly stable for long exposures. This requires the gimbal, which compensates small movements. The maximum exposure time then depends theoretically only on the camera specs(with little wind). However, this is limited to 8 seconds with the Phantom 4, as far as I know. But there are also great and expensive drones under which you can hang a DSLR on a great gimbal. In fact, a drone can be used like a real "tripod in the air" under good external conditions.

  8. You are right, the drone itself is permanently moving (small amounts). But modern camera-drones like phantom or mavic have a very fast and exact gimbal. The gimbal compensates the movements perfectly, so that long exposures beyond 1/4 second should also be possible. For this reason, the tripod mode is not required for still photos. However, I haven't tried it myself yet, in Germany flying in the dark is forbidden. This was done with a old drone that is technically inferior to the Phantom 4 or the Mavic 2. Certainly longer than 1/4 second exposure time: https://www.fotocommunity.de/photo/karlsruhe-night-i-fliegendes-stat-stefan-zimmermann/36112505
  9. The Mavic 2 pro might be something for you. It has sensors in all directions, hard to scrape. 1 inch sensor with 20 MP and the lettering "Hasselblad" on the lens (is in reality from Sony, of course). . And the price is about the same as a cheap lens for a full-frame camera.
  10. As far as I know, the sensor in the Mavic 2 pro is identical as in the RX 100.
  11. I think, it is the same camera as in the Mavic Air. So not optimal, but, when shot with good light and make some PP against noise, it is accepted by Alamy, no matter about the tiny sensor. But in fact the photos made by the Mavic 2 pro (not Mavic 2 zoom) are better then photos made by the Mavic Air (or Mavic pro). So if you want to use it and not just have a toy, it is worth to invest 500 Euro more and get the 2 pro
  12. Phantom 4 Pro is accepted. Mavic Air can be accepted, but must be carefully choosen (noise problem sometimes). Mavic 2 pro, the "Hasselblad", should be accepted, photos look good. But I did not try yet to submit to Alamy. .
  13. I'm afraid that wasn't really much. I hope Alamy knows what they're doing, and occasionally submit a few 360 degree panos.
  14. I follow the Discussuion with amazement. Since when is it necessary to submit an MR for an item? I see the photo of the hand of a scarecrow with a bird on it, apparently amused by the stupid scarecrow. I see no person, only a bird and a small part of a scarecrow. I think the photo, with the appropriate description, can be used as an RF without MR.
