  1. Same email as well. My last submission was over a week ago and those images are up and selling.
  2. I'm giving instagram a try and here's my new account. Still learning how to use it https://www.instagram.com/mjcreativeimagery/
  3. Since when are scheduled events and political marches not news? Looking at the live news pages, I see many scheduled sporting events, political demonstrations and events, entertainment events, photos of the sun, the moon, and photos of a skunk in green grass (ok that last one wasn't scheduled, but is it news?).
  4. Fantastic topic! Here are my three: Former Provincial leader of British Columbia Christy Clark (from my Live News days) Vancouver celebrity and entrepreneur Faye Leung (aka Hat Lady) And more recently, a first time female Time Lord:
  5. Yes that's what I was getting at Matt. I'm guessing that some of the LiveNews images produced here may have sold if there were more (or any) Canadian news desks using alamy images. But like I said, I'm just guessing, I don't know the behind the scenes details, and I haven't checked every Canadian news outlet.
  6. I was wondering about location as well. I don't see anything from Canada in the Live News feed at the moment and I wonder how many Canadian contributors kept their Live News access. My LiveNews images never sold as news, but then again I have never seen any of the local or national news outlets showing any alamy images. Like others, I am uphappy with the way I was abruptly cut from Live News. It would have gone over easier if there was an earlier announcement about upcoming changes and how Live News access was going to be reduced. Maria
  7. That's a good point John. I've also noticed in textbooks I've used, and in books where I've found my photographs, that the image credits often list several different agencies. So it doesn't make sense to compete with yourself by having the same images elsewhere and cheaper.
  8. So sorry to hear about all you're going through Betty. I have my share of back issues too. Hope yours is feeling better soon. Maria
  9. I haven't seen any different layout recently either.
  10. A street of cherry blossoms in Metro Vancouver.
  11. I just got the email too. Does alamy want to prune out their news submitters? None of my live news images have sold as news, only as stock. I'm wondering if all news submitters have to re-apply,
  12. 3 MB size is fine for QC. The 17MB requirement is for the uncompressed file size, not the jpg. From the alamy contributor pages: File size of over 17MB (when uncompressed/open) Your JPEG file is likely to have a compressed size of 3-5MB. Opening a JPEG in an image program such as Adobe Photoshop will show you the uncompressed/open file size.
  13. What kind of camera and what size files are you sending in?
  14. I agree there are too many fireworks photos. I would only submit a few of your very best (one's that make you go wow!). And for future fireworks shoots, try to include more of the setting along with the fireworks. If someone is searching for photos of a particular fireworks event, they probably want to see more than just the dark sky and fireworks. Maria
